Even if you opposed executive amnesty before the president’s speech Thursday night, the patriot in your heart must certainly have felt a pang of guilt when asked by the president, “Are we a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents’ arms?”

Well, that’s true, but are you as an American citizen and possibly a parent yourself going to let that keep happening to illegal immigrants?

It used to be, under Janet Reno’s watch.

There’s a thought. Quite a few, though, couldn’t divorce the rhetoric of “ripping children” from their parents from the liberal sacrament of abortion.

Dude, quit trying to bring abortion into this. Obama has scripture to back up the righteousness of granting amnesty to illegals: “Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger – we were strangers once, too.”

And babies, now that you mention it.
