View Diary: Have Dems sold out too early on immigration? Not if they want something to actually pass (317 comments)

  •  Not disagreeing... Just suggesting that (7+ / 0-)

    acquiescence on a key platform like this requires an assumption of good faith on the Republicans to deliver from their end, and they keep proving us wrong.  That leaves us with egg on our faces with our allies and nothing to show for it except internal divisions and anger.  Still: it's the sausage approach.  Just think it's worth bracing for the expected fallout.

    I'd much prefer it if our party made a much bigger noise about the immigration issue in general and tried to embarrass Republicans (heh) into coming aboard, but I think Dems are timid on this issue, trying to strike a balance between solidifying one coveted demo without losing too much of another (voters ill-inclined toward immigrants.)
