    I picked "that politician thinks we are dumb enough to fall for another amnesty with hollow promises of enforcement". If they were actually serious about enforcement it would have been done a long time ago. Voters should be insulted any time some politician says we need a comprehensive immigration reform.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    "Immigration reform" is nothing more than a means thru which the Dems hope to increase their voter base.

    We don't need to change anything. ENFORCE THE LAWS.

    Other - They are stating the obvious and using big words in the hope someone actually thinks they are planning to do something effective or correct.

    Other - I won't say all politicians think we are dumb. I doubt they will do anything significant. I found it interesting that Obama included employers of illegals need to be held accountable in his speach today. Yet, Obama is taking Arizona to court over its 2007 employer law which basically holds employers accountable for knowingly hiring an illegal. Go figuer.

    It depends on the politician and the context. I have no doubt that both of the answers you gave are valid depending on who you apply them to.

    Drug laws are designed to reduce democratic voter base and are racist in nature.
    Tax breaks are designed as a handout in exchange for votes

    I voted the first option. I honestly can't accept anything a Democrat says regarding immigration reform anymore. I am 95% certain they see all illegal immigrants as undocumented Democrat voters.

    I support amnesty and immigration, and don't really care how they spin it if they can get 60 votes.
