For those in Congress who are so afraid they will not be re-elected... Unless they are people made of stone, they have to be experiencing some type of remorse, sadness, guilt... for voting against the DREAM Act and Don't Ask Don't Tell. For the life of me can't figure out John McCain who used to be considered a "maverick" - now talks like immigrants are beings from hell. Maybe he has developed some dementia.... because it is surely clear to everyone that he is talking from the wrong side of his mouth. Remember, he used to be one of the supporters of the DREAM Act! As Gail Collins said in the NYT "Senator John McCain, for instance, was nearly apoplectic about the fact that Reid was attaching unrelated amendments to the defense appropriations bill" -
Sometimes doing the right thing means losing your Senate job. For most people losing their jobs is a terrible loss. But for Senators its not such a bad thing, since most of them make lots of money from side investments they are able to arrange because of their "high positions." Senators are not your average Joe....
But I guess to be a politician you have to develop some type of obsession for power, especially if you get as high as the Senate. Such a shame.
So, the question is, do the Senators have hearts? If so, where are they?
