The Busby Blunder

From the San Diego Union-Tribune comes this article about a recent statement made by Francine Busby, the Democratic candidate for California's 50th District. Here is how it begins:

If an election can turn on a sentence, this could be the one: “You don't need papers for voting.”

On Thursday night, Francine Busby, the Democratic candidate for the 50th Congressional District, was speaking before a largely Latino crowd in Escondido when she uttered those words. She said yesterday she simply misspoke.

Misspoke? Yeah, and my uncle plays lead guitar for The Who.

Actually, this statement and this article just further solidifies the argument that the Dems are for open borders, solely because they want to win elections. They need votes. Never mind the ramifications. They show desperation at many a turn these days, and this statement was just one more piece of evidence (in the midst of many) that supports this claim.

I cannot imagine how these people expect to earn the trust of anyone, when they say and do, the things they do. Are they just too ignorant to know that the media is far reaching and too astute to miss something like this? Or do they just not care? Do they not know that in this age of media and information, the press will not miss idiotic blunders like this? Or do they just thumb their noses at everyone, because of their over-inflated sense of importance?

But, know this. It's one thing for her to say something stupid like this and it's another, to try and tap dance her way out of it without looking like a liar and a fool. (And she did both) I am not nearly as angry with the original statement, itself. I fully expect Democrats to want illegals voting. This is nothing new, it's been going on for ages. It doesn't surprise me, in the least.

What I really resent is, when they insult the average American's intelligence, by coming up with the old "I misspoke" defense. They take the people for utter fools.

She meant what she said, or she would not have said it. And as I said earlier, she was even more foolish to try and reverse course. But the question I have is, will the illegals listen to her and vote her in? What a travesty it would be, if that were the case.

Fraud and corruption are the mainstay of the "illegal" culture in this country. Falsified documents, from identity papers to welfare cards are more common than most people realize. The mentality is to TAKE whatever you can, even if it requires dishonesty. It is merely "getting even" with Americans for their "sins of the past." Busby's freudian slip reveals the truth and we should be grateful for it. The leopard has revealed its spots.

Mustang,

1. I am not convinced it was Freudian.

2. There are people that still do not see her spots, although she has showed them to all.

Well, this is one helluva wrong way to go about it! Talk about stuffing the ballot boxes.

AOW,

Well, this is one helluva wrong way to go about it! Talk about stuffing the ballot boxes.

Stuffing the ballot boxes with votes from dead people must be getting harder.
