These are Norm's people
are Norm's people:
...Tom Tancredo, a Republican Congressman who has led the charge for immigration reform on Capitol Hill, says Americans need to understand that President George W. Bush is a globalist; therefore, the conservative lawmaker asserts, no one should be surprised that Bush continually opposes efforts to secure U.S. borders. Tancredo recently blasted a bill proposed by Senators John McCain and Ted Kennedy that called for granting legal status to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. The Colorado Republican says President Bush supports these kinds of amnesty proposals because he truly believes in a future unified "new world order." But Tancredo believes the vast majority of Americans do not agree with the president. "George Bush is an internationalist," the congressman contends. "People have to understand that. It's not like he's doing it just to get the Hispanic vote. He believes in the elimination of borders. He believes that the country will one day become just a place on the continent." But, according to Tancredo, President Bush regards those who demand secure borders as obstructionists and dinosaurs, destined eventually to die out. "We have to make him understand that the whole concept of a nation-state is still relevant, and that there is no desire on the part of the people in this country to move in his direction," Tancredo says.
These are the voters who think that reform at the United Nations should involve flamethrowers and bulldozers. In other words: Smilin' Norm Coleman's core constituency.
By the way, Clever Peasantry has some great stuff on Sen. Post today (here and here).
