The Left worked through academentia, through its media salons, through its sniffs and conceits, through its exhausted disdain for Americans themselves, through deep liars like Chomsky and cracker-barrel Marxists like Zinn.
Finally, the stage was set. The perfect storm blew. And the anti-American President arrived:
Bill Bennett and Seth Leibsohn donâ€™t mince words on NRO: â€œAllowing the running down of a part of the United States by the head of a foreign government, at the White House, standing next to the president â€” who not only didnâ€™t challenge him, but encouraged him â€” is a foreign- and domestic-policy catastrophe.â€ I couldnâ€™t agree more with them, or with Mona Charen and Michelle Malkin, whoâ€™ve written forcefully about the absurdity of entertaining commentary on our immigration enforcement (or lack of same) from Mexico. That would be the same Mexico that enforces its immigration laws with the very â€œintolerance, hate, discrimination and abuseâ€ of which its president, Felipe CalderÃ³n, falsely accuses Arizona.
