The gloves are coming off and the brass knuckles are going on.

John Hawkins has started the Payback Project which I wholeheartedly support. I'm going one step farther. Kay Baily Hutchison, stick a fork in your political career, you are done. I am going to find someone to run against you, if that means I have to run myself and I am going to support them to the hilt. It does not MATTER how bad they are, they cannot hold a candle to the crimes against the American people you have committed. If I have anything to do with it, you'll be lucky to get appointed ambassador to some garden spot like Somalia or Zimbabwe. You have embarrassed Texas long enough. We're through.

Gee,

I muttered the same thing over seven years ago. She still won reelection, TWICE!

It was like rubbing salt-laced vinegar in a gapping wound!

Heh, Well, if I do, I don't plan on getting my hopes too far up. conventional wisdom says it takes millions of dollars to win a senatorial election. If I end up running, it will be a viral internet campaign on the cheap. I also have her abysmal senatorial record to point to. But even if I don't win, I'll have forced her to respond and spend money and defend her record.

She waffled on running for governor and decided against it. Too many players in the field, I suppose. She certainly hasn't earned much favor with the voters, and I've never voted for her!

re: the crimes against the American people you have committed

Pretend I don't have a clue what's "wrong" with Kay-baby and couldn't figure it out from either your post or the link to the other guys what these "crimes" are....would it be so difficult to spell them out?

Good luck upsetting the status quo too.

Sorry TxGoodie, I know I should not post when angry, I tend to forget to explain myself well when I do that.

Hutchison has consistently failed to vote for immigration and border enforcement. Last go round, she was consistently voting for the McCain Immigration/treason bill. This go round she voted against Tom Coburn's amendment for "enforcement first". Her office was being inundated with calls and that is the only reason she voted against cloture. She does not want the fence built, She insists on amnesty. When I called her office to complain about her vote against Coburn's amendment the very first words out of the guy's mouth was that "she voted to kill the bill" which is complete hogwash, she voted against cloture which is not the same thing, although it can over time have much the same effect.She does not want to enforce employer sanctions either.

Thanks for the clarification. I'm not always paying attention these days so I probably should of known what had your jocks in a knot...


I got this from her (people) last week...

Thank you for contacting me regarding illegal immigration in the United States. I welcome your thoughts and comments on this issue.

Congress substantially revised our nation's immigration laws in 1996, including the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act, expanding the Border Patrol, imposing significant penalties on immigrant smugglers, and establishing expedited deportation procedures. In the wake of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, we have been forced to reexamine our immigration laws and policies in order to eliminate vulnerabilities in our national security while continuing to meet the intent of the Constitution and the demands of international commerce.

Since 2001, Congress has addressed many immigration and border security concerns in the USA PATRIOT Act, the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004, and the REAL ID Act of 2005. Key provisions have included a systematic plan to monitor the southern border with unmanned aerial vehicles, authorization for an increase in the number of personnel devoted to enforcing immigration laws, and requirements that all applicants for state-issued identification and drivers' licenses prove their lawful presence in the United States.

In October 2005, I introduced S. 1823, the Illegal Immigration Enforcement and Empowerment Act, which would grant state and local officials expanded authority to arrest, detain and prosecute illegal aliens. The legislation would have created a Volunteer Border Marshal Program. In addition, I met with U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff to discuss broad immigration reform measures and the new provisions outlined in my bill. I also led Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) on a tour along the U.S.-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley to highlight the need for more agents, technology and funding to secure our borders. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I have worked hard to secure more than $322 million in additional appropriations over the past year for border security, including funding for 1,500 new Border Patrol agents (bringing the total number to 14,819 Border Patrol agents), 50 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigators, 168 detention officers, and almost 2,000 detention beds. To this date, we have ended catch and release and accelerated the deportation process. I strongly supported provisions for an additional $1.9 billion in immediate funding for border security to cover the first 1,000 of 6,000 new Border Patrol agents who will be deployed to the border in the next two years. These funds, as provided in the Fiscal Year 2006 Emergency Supplemental appropriations bill, will assist with the temporary deployment of up to 6,000 National Guard troops aiding the Border Patrol with surveillance and logistics. Though S. 1823 was not considered by the full Senate prior to the adjournment of the 109th Congress, I understand that more needs to be done.

The United States has one of the most open immigration policies in the world, and I am aware of the important contributions our immigrants make to our nation. Temporary work visas play an important role in ensuring U.S. companies have the workers they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive global marketplace. However, U.S. immigration policy must ensure American workers have every opportunity to compete for available jobs. In the areas of our economy where voids of talent and skills exist, we need to invest the resources necessary to fill those gaps. For example, I believe we need to increase our country's skills in the areas of math and science, and in 2006 I cosponsored an amendment to the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2006 to assist in this effort by increasing our funding for Advanced Placement courses.

I support the development of a guest worker program that would allow foreign nationals to work in the United States in industries where labor is in critical demand. For this reason, I have been joined by Representative Mike Pence (R-IN) in proposing a new visa category. Our proposal would create the Secure Borders, Good Neighbors and Secure Authorized Foreign Employees (SAFE) Visa program. The program would grant visas to authorized nationals of NAFTA or CAFTA-DR countries who receive employment offers in job areas in the United States that have been certified by the Secretary of Labor as having a shortage of workers. The Good Neighbor SAFE Visa is a positive step in the right direction. This plan puts border security first and addresses those who knowingly hire illegal workers, but it also recognizes the need for a temporary worker program that operates without amnesty and harnesses the power of the private sector to avoid creating a huge new government bureaucracy.

I believe that granting citizenship or lawful permanent residence status to those who entered our country illegally would only encourage others to break our laws in the future. For these reasons, I opposed amnesty provisions set forth in the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006. I voted against S. 2611 because I believe that any legislation addressing immigration must first address the safety and security needs of the United States. In a world where terrorists continue to seek to harm Americans, we must protect our citizens. We have every right to know who is in our country, who has crossed our borders, and the purpose and the length of the visit. We are negligent if we do not know these things.

The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006 was passed by the Senate on May 25, 2006, by a 62 to 36 vote. Though S. 2611 passed the Senate, it was not considered by the House of Representatives prior to the adjournment of the 109th Congress. I will keep your views in mind as the Senate continues to consider this important issue in the 110th Congress.

I appreciate hearing from you and hope you will not hesitate to keep in touch on any issue of concern to you.


Sincerely,
Kay Bailey Hutchison


Your thought on all this?

I got exactly the same form letter via email. She's trying to put lipstick on that pig but that pig ain't having none of it. I's been screwed too many times, it knows what is coming next.

You'll note that nowhere in there does she actually defend her vote against Coburn's amendment. She voted against the fence too. She prefers a "virtual fence" which means an ineffective one. Remember Project "Polar White"? The attempt to erect a "virtual fence" across the Ho Chi Minh trail? The Viet Cong ignored the listening devices with impunity because by the time someone actually scrambled a plane with some napalm aboard, the Viet Cong were long gone. This is the kind of fence she wants to build.

By the way, did you notice she talked about all the accomplishments of Congress, but she artfully left out the part about which way she voted on those things?

You can find her voting record here ( http://www.vote-smart.org/voting_category.php?can_id=53349 ), it is chock full of contradictory votes.
