PAT: I think we start with Wolf.
GLENN: That’s the only happy news left in this thing. No, I want to start with Calderon. Because I want to give you some hope there’s somebody actually out there. Here’s the house floor.
VOICE: "I strongly disagree with your recently adopted lo in Arizona."
GLENN: Our lo.
PAT: It is a lo.
GLENN: I don’t know what a lo is.
PAT: At this point the democrats in the chamber are standing, giving him a standing ovation. Other republicans applaud him.
GLENN: I don’t think so.
VOICE: "It ignores the reality that cannot be erased by decree but also introduces a terrible idea using racial profiling as the basis for lo important."
PAT: For lo.
STU: For low levels of enforcement, I think is what he was saying there. It didn’t make much sense in the sentence there.
GLENN: Racially profiling. And we’re trying to correct something that cannot be corrected. It’s a law of nature now. I guess that people are coming across the border to live in America, because you suck so much in your government that you can’t clean up the corruption and you can’t stop the drug runners that are actually controlling cities now. You can’t even get the military to control your cities. So I understand that you suck so much that your people want to escape.
PAT: And these idiots, idiots in the house stand and applaud him. The Democrats. Can’t wait to applaud someone bashing America or a state in America and our sovereignty at stake here, and they don’t care. They just get up and applaud.
STU: He’s specifically saying something that’s untrue that it’s based on racial profiling. They know it’s in there specifically prohibited in the bill.
GLENN: Wait, let’s let me show you a little beacon of sunshine, that there is a journalist out there. There is a journalist out there. One. Unfortunately, he’s on at 5:00 clock and now nobody’s watching him. And I feel bad that’s why I want to play this. Because you should hear this. This is Wolf Blitzer, a guy who I contend is one of the only real journalists out there. He is a decent, decent human being. There are several things that have happened that I have personally witnessed with Wolf Blitzer off air where I believe he is a fair guy. He really, truly, tries to be a fair and decent man. May get it wrong sometimes. But we all do. But I really believe he’s a decent man. Listen to the questions when he had Calderon on. Listen to the questions and the answer.
PAT: First of all, Wolf asks him what’s wrong with Arizona protecting the border.
VOICE: "It’s racial profiling criteria in order to enforce the law that it’s against any sense of human rights. And, of course, it’s provoking very disappointing things or very disappointing opinion in Mexico and around the world even here in America. To introduce these kind of elements, especially racial profiling aspects that are attempting
PAT: Blood is boiling.
VOICE: "What we consider human rights, which is the principle against the values of this great nation."
PAT: Unbelievable specifically prohibited.
GLENN: He said it over and over in the law. Are these lo values? Lo values?
PAT: Yeah. So then Wolf follows up, to his credit, Wolf Blitzer followed up and said: Okay. If they’re coming from if they’re coming from El Salvador or Manawa can they just come across your border?
VOICE: "No, they need to fulfill a form. They need to establish their right name. We analyze if they have not criminal precedence."
VOICE: "Do Mexican police go around asking for papers of people they expect are illegal? If someone sneaks in from Nicaragua some other country in Central America through the southern border of Mexico, they wind up in Mexico, they can get a job and go to work?"
VOICE: "No, if somebody comes in does that without permission, we send back them."
PAT: I know. You can’t even
GLENN: "We send back them."
STU: The best audio I’ve ever heard in my life.
PAT: Because it’s against their lo. So they send back them because it’s against their lo.
GLENN: And really hurts the balues of that great nation.
PAT: But our lo, apparently, is racist.
STU: And he’s even
GLENN: We cannot send back them if they come. Because we’re racist.
STU: He even goes into the fact that police go and look for people who look like they might be illegal.
GLENN: And they ask papers. Papers.
PAT: Much further than Arizona’s lo.
STU: It is.
PAT: I don’t like their balues. Why can’t their balues be different than our balues and it’s okay for their lo to say certain things and send back them but we can’t do things of that nature?
STU: Just enforce the lo that we already have.
PAT: Is that ask too much?
STU: That’s what American balues are built on.
GLENN: Just a second.
PAT: Backward speak we should. Yes. Yes.
