The Young Guns


En la imagen: Los Senadores David Vitter (R - Louisiana) y Jim Demint (R - Carolina dle Sur).

Leía ayer un interesante artículo del 'Washignton Times' sobre el rotundo fracaso del proyecto de reforma migratoria presentado ante el Senado. Como ya sabréis, la ley obtuvo 14 votos menos de los 60 necesarios para poder avanzar hacia una votación final. Y como sabréis también, el debate expuso la gran división existente dentro del caucus republicano sobre esta materia.

La votación de hace dos días significó la victoria de un grupo de jóvenes y novatos Senadores conservadores del GOP que, con la inestimable ayuda de las bases y una terrible campaña de presión a través de internet, humillaron a la vieja guardia del liderazgo de la cámara alta, tanto republicanos como demócratas, que contaba con el apoyo de la Casa Blanca y la Fox News.

El gran líder de esta "rebelión republicana" contra la propuesta de reforma migratoria ha sido el Senador Jim DeMint, de Carolina del Sur, acompañado por los Senadores David Vitter, de Louisiana, y Tom Coburn, de Oklahoma. Los tres elegidos por primera vez en 2004, coincidiendo con la triunfal reelección del Presidente Bush. A ellos se han unido también en ocasiones el Senador John Thune, de Dakota del Sur, el mejor comunicador del grupo, también del curso de 2004, y Jeff Sessions, de Alabama, este más veterano. La presión ha sido tan brutal que hasta el Líder de la Minoría republicana, Mitch McConnell, hasta ahora defensor de la ley, votó en contra en el último momento irritando a la Casa Blanca.

Se extiende el triunfalismo por la blogosfera conservadora por lo que observan como un triunfo de su poder de intervención. Durante semanas han sido constantes los llamamientos a los votanets de cada distrito para que bombardearan y presionaran telefónicamente y a través de correo a sus senadores de cara a la votación, al tiempo que los chicos de DeMint y compañía presionaban en el Capitolio. El resultado final de la operación ha convertido a esta media docena de jóvenes legisladores en auténticas estrellas entre los activistas republicanos. No os extrañe que alguno de ellos pueda entrar en consideración en 2008 para la candidatura republicana a la Vicepresidencia de los Estados Unidos. Junior GOP senators defeat old guard

(...) Instead, the young guns — a small, wily group of junior Republican senators, most of them with less than a full term in the upper chamber — sent the bill into a tailspin, tying Democratic leaders into legislative knots and earning enough opposition among senators to block the Senate bill, culminating in yesterday's vote to kill the measure. (...)

Entiendo la división que este asunto provoca en la sociedad americana. A grandes rasgos por un lado soy partidario de una legislación migratoria flexible, y por el otro soy detractor de la igualdad de derechos entre los inmigrantes y los nacionales. Por cierto, en esa foto Jim Demint es clavado clavado a Mel Gibson eh.

I was playing an app on Facebook (Graffiti) and my Mac warned me that the page may contain malware. Of course I ignored it because I wanted to draw more with the app, and when i was done the page scrolled up by itself and my curser moved across the screen a bit on its own. Does my Mac have a virus? are there any built-in features that could be of assistance? are there any anti-virus programs safe to use on my Mac? [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]
