The so-called mainstream media has missed it.
So has the so-called establishment of both parties.
So have the (poison) Ivy League intellectuals.
So has the Bush White House and the Clinton HQ.
And John McCain, Katie Couric, The Washington Post, and all the rest of the very people who have already plunged this country into a downward spiral.
Driver's licenses for illegal aliens is a huge issue.
It is an issue capable of changing the nomination in each party beginning in 56 days in Iowa and then five days later in New Hampshire. It is also an issue that could change the outcome of next year’s general election for president.
In every poll even a majority of Democrats do not want to give illegal aliens driver's licenses.
Yet Hillary Clinton flits across the TV screens doing her usual double-and-triple-talk dance, all the while saying she does indeed favor giving driver's licenses to illegals. This major miscalculation by Hillary has cost her in New Hampshire where, in just a week, her lead over Barack Obama has shrunk to its lowest level this year.
The same in Iowa: Out there many Democrats are apoplectic over the influx of thousands of illegals into factory-heavy Iowa. This issue has to hurt Hillary there, too.
Except the Democrats need a candidate to really go after her on this — not just on her double-speak but on her position in favor of licenses.
And the GOP — down in the mouth after six years of Bush failures and betrayals — needs a new candidate who has been consistently against illegal immigration. Unfortunately, Rudy and Romney are major flip-floppers on this issue. Rudy now claims he’ll stop it. Oh, really? He defended and protected illegals as mayor of New York. Rudy and Romney are shameless in how they will say anything to get nominated. Neither of them believes in anything other than getting their greedy hands on power.
And this single issue has been brought again to the forefront by another out-of-touch incompetent Ivy League lefty, New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer — whose ratings in New York have declined since unilaterally deciding to give out licenses to illegals. Even a majority of New York City residents, arguably some of the most liberal in the nation, oppose giving driver's licenses to illegal aliens.
This issue is explosive.
And the real drive behind it is not lost on anyone — Hillary and Spitzer are giving illegals driver's licenses to ultimately allow them to vote.
As the economy deteriorates and the public sense of confidence declines, this issue will only become more central to the essence of the 2008 election.
Watch it; it is going to be huge.
And do not trust Rudy or Romney when they suddenly re-create themselves into opponents of illegal immigration.
