Following up on Jon Kyl’s remarks, which I broke here at RedState this weekend, (that President Obama told him in a private, one-on-one meeting, in the Oval Office, that he would not secure the border because if he were to do so then “you all” would have no reason to support “comprehensive immigration reform”) and what Sen. John McCain said on the floor of the Senate today (that a few weeks ago President Obama told all 41 Republican Senators the same thing he told Sen. Kyl in the Oval Office) (hat tip to Cubachi’s blog), we learn today from Naked Emperor News (hat tip to Redstate’s Caleb Howe) that an audio tape exists from September, 2004 on which can be heard Barack Obama explaining that his strategy for solving the illegal alien immigration problem requires that “the trade off is going to have to be improved border security.”

So, who do you think has been telling the truth?
Candidate Obama, back in 2004, and Sen. Kyl and Sen. McCain?
Or President Obama in the last few weeks?
I think it is safe to say now who’s been telling the truth.

Conservatives, UNITE! CHANGE the Republican Party and save the world by UNITING INSIDE the Party as precinct committeemen. NOW! (133 days until Nov. 2 — what are YOU DOING to help get out the vote in your precinct?)
American first, conservative second, Republican precinct committeeman BY NECESSITY!
ThePrecinctProject, so you can say, “I became a precinct committeeman before it was cool.”

If adopted, the law (the Workplace Freedom Act in West Virginia) would make it illegal to require employees to join a union as a condition of employment. Ending this scheme of | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES You know, Saturday night’s debate was just the last piece of evidence in a pretty long string that Chris Christie is a fundamentally dishonest person. When you run for President, you have to give hundreds if not thousands of speeches over a very short time period. You get asked the same question – or variations on it – by | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES In the past we’ve seen large, well-connected businesses run into trouble, and then run to government to keep afloat and unafraid of competition. The airlines do it, GM did it, the banks did it, and every time Democrats and establishment Republicans oblige. We appear to have found the next industry cozy with politicians that’s going to ask for one. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Fame is a distorting and highly overrated quality – as the late, great David Bowie knew so well. Especially now in the Internet Age – when everyone shares publicly every tiny facet of their existence. Especially now in the Omni-Media Age – in which was born the phrase “Famous for being famous” (See: Kardashians). But the things that allow | Read More »
His messaging in that first hour and going through the debate, was remarkable that’ going resonate on Tuesday. But I’m gonna be very curious to see when Senator Cruz out produces expectations and comes in a first second third place, if he’s gonna get the same kind of press.
