Comments: Great Speech!

Nice post!

It wasn't "Rope a Dope." It was Tyson rights... over and over and over again, right to the nose of Democrats.

I was called a "leftist" AND a "Marxist" by a FB friend for endorsing POTUS' immigration offer: 1.8M "Dreamers" stay, eligible for citizenship process, in exchange for ending the Visa "lottery" reforming serial ("chain") migration, and BUILDING THE WALL. It probably doesn't matter, however, because I seriously doubt ten Democrats will break ranks to vote for it. POTUS clearly called their bluff.

For the record, I am down with the President's "four pillars" compromise as well.

I'd rather not have a wall, but I'll trade it for the Dreamers. And I realize that further increases to legal immigration that I support will be facilitated if opponents feel that enforcement is real.

What he is trying is to move it from illegal to legal. I'd expand it at the same time, but I did not win an election. It will be interesting to see what the Democrats do. He will have a lot of leverage to say "they won't take 'yes' for an answer."

Hope your friends -- and imagine what they call me! -- can be brought onboard at least as far as silence. The peril for this plan is bi-partisan.

I think we're seeing The Art of the Deal scaled up YUUUGE.
Yes, I am oK with this as a starting point... as long as real reform takes place. Don't care about the future just yet.
