Connie Mack "Whiffs" ON AB 1070

As a baseball fan, the name Connie Mack says a lot to me: Blue collar catcher, successful manager and owner.  Hall of Famer.  However, that name is also shared with the "Gentleman From FL", whom I find has little in common with his great-grandfather..

Connie Mack IV is a Representative from Florida's 14th District. Mach was also Gov. Crist's campaign chairman until earlier this month. Rep. Mack made a most obtuse and uneducated comment regarding Arizona's AB1070, making reference to Nazi Germany: (h/t

"This law of 'frontier justice' – where law enforcement officials are required to stop anyone based on 'reasonable suspicion' that they may be in the country illegally – is reminiscent of a time during World War II when the Gestapo in Germany stopped people on the street and asked for their papers without probable cause," Mack said in a statement.
"This is not the America I grew up in and believe in, and it’s not the America I want my children to grow up in," he added.

Question #1:  Why is any Congressman - especially a Republican Congressman - speaking AGAINST an issue of immigration reform? And more importantly.

Question #2:  Why do elected morons officials not actually READ documents before commenting on them?

Why do politicians enjoy opening their intellectual zippers to display their stupidity to the masses? (Rhetorical question, I know...).  This is just plain ignorance on Mack's part.  An unnecessary and inflammatory comment with no useful purpose to the people of Florida - or Arizona for that matter.

As an aside, we now have greater insight into the downward spiral of Charlie Crist; and his campaign to lose is free backwaxing election in November.  If Connie put the same effort into Crist's campaign as he did researching this issue, the anticipated results were never in question.

I guess the RINO never travels far from the salad after all (reference to movie "Ice Age".  Borrow it from your kids)...
