Busy with day job concerns today, but did notice this blistering email headline from a friend:
Same old Republican hacks on issueless Pawlenty campaign
He was sending me Politico
â€™s gushing story
on the staffing up of the nascent Pawlenty Presidential effort:
Pawlenty, under the radar of D.C.â€™s political community, has locked up some of the key operatives who engineered then-President George W. Bushâ€™s reelection campaign â€” a significant feat for a little-known Midwestern politicianâ€¦ Pawlenty will also announce two co-chairmen, William Strong, a Morgan Stanley vice chairman, and former Rep. Vin Weber (R-Minn.), both of whom are heavyweight GOP figures, along with a list of prominent Minnesota donors.
Great. A Wall Street parasite with (for a â€? heavyweight GOP figureâ€?) a very funny history
of political donations, and in Steve Sailerâ€™s description,
â€?uberlobbyistâ€? Vin Weber.
It is Vin Weber who should be a deal breaker for immigration reform patriots. In his twelve years in Congress 1981-93 Weber chalked up a perfect F
- on the Numbers USA rating system. Since then he has been making a fortune as a Washington influence peddler
, but has been seen lurking around on the wrong side
of the Amnesty Wars. That he is Vice Chairman of Pawlenty`s campaign should tell patriots all they need to know.
Minnesota has plenty of immigration-caused problems
, what with the Hmong
. Pawlenty, as Dave Gorak predicted in 2006
, is ignoring them. Facing them is not the way to gain the patronage of the Big Money/Inside the Beltway crowd.
