The problem with conservative doctrine, if one listens to conservatives, is not conservative doctrine. The problem is the inability to get the message out. Once people hear the message they believe, people will buy into it.
Republicans will nominate extremist
Ken Cuccinelli for Governor in the only major election this fall that has any
meaning national 2013 Mr. Cuccinelli is a ‘no
apologist’ conservative, or at least he wasn't.
in the Washington Post shows how Mr. Cuccinelli is now trying to hide his
views. For example on the high profile
issue of immigration Mr. Cuccinelli is a hard liner, or at least he was. Virginia
As a lawmaker in 2008, Mr. Cuccinelli was chief sponsor of a bill urging a Constitution rewrite to strip the U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants of their right to citizenship. He authored legislation that would have denied jobless benefits to certain employees for not speaking English. He pushed through a bill that allowed localities to investigate and punish crowded boardinghouses, which he called “one of the most common side effects of illegal immigration.”
As attorney general, he has embraced Arizona-style policies that authorize police to check the immigration status of anyone they stop or arrest. He has also opposed comprehensive immigration reform, or what he calls amnesty for undocumented immigrants, whose presence in the labor market, he believes, has diminished the nation’s standard of living.
But what happens when a prospective voters goes to Mr. Cuccinelli’s web site to learn more about his views on immigration?
But clicking Tuesday on a link to the campaign site’s immigration policy page brought up the following: “This is somewhat embarrassing, isn’t it? It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for.”
Well it is embarrassing, at least for Conservatives. But then in the light of day most of their positions are embarrassing. As for Mr. Cuccinelli, the “Straight Talk Express” he ain’t.
