Tamara Jacoby: Evil Lying Witch Or Deluded?

You decide!

Source: Foreign Affairs

Tamara Jacoby has another knee pad worthy, pro-illegal puffy spin piece in the august Foreign Affairs magazine. She is as loopy as ever...
In fact, the nation is far less divided on immigration, legal or illegal, than the current debate suggests. In the last six months, virtually every major media outlet has surveyed public attitudes on the issue, and the results have been remarkably consistent. Americans continue to take pride in the United States' heritage as a nation of immigrants. Many are uneasy about the current influx of foreigners. But an overwhelming majority -- between two-thirds and three-quarters in every major poll -- would like to see Congress address the problem with a combination of tougher enforcement and earned citizenship for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants already living and working here. A strange-bedfellow coalition -- of business associations, labor unions, and the Catholic Church, among others -- has endorsed this position. In Washington, the consensus behind it is even more striking, with supporters spanning the spectrum from conservative President George W. Bush to left-leaning Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), from mavericks like Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) to party regulars like Senator Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and all but a handful of congressional Democrats. But even this broad agreement may not produce a solution this fall.
Let's break this down Barney style...

True! But not in the way she imagines.

True, so long as your willing to accept these ridiculously biased polls. A better option.

Perhaps not so strange after all.

(...) I got nothing, how do you refute gibbering nonsense?

One final bit from this excrement club sandwich I'd like to share...
As recently as 18 months ago, a visitor could have spent a week in the United States, watching television and reading the newspapers, and come away with virtually no clue that immigration was a major issue. Today, it is at or near the top of most voters' lists of problems facing the nation -- one that, in many people's minds, outweighs every other threat save international terrorism. This shift has been driven in large part by politicians and the media.
Really? Politicians, who have been ignoring this problem for decades and the media who have been ignoring this problem for decades suddenly decided out of the blue to whack the hornets nest? Really? To be this far removed from reality makes one wonder about the veracity, nay, the very sanity of the retard that scribbled this tripe, no?

Oh, Tamara baby? A hint.
