Senator Clinton Abandons Drivers License for Undocumenteds

Get out the scoreboard. Senator Hillary Clinton (D-New York), who had endorsed the idea just two weeks ago, has this afternoon done a one eighty on the question of drivers licenses for undocumented immigrants.

“I support Governor Spitzer’s decision today to withdraw his proposal,” Clinton said in a statement. “As president, I will not support driver’s licenses for undocumented people and will press for comprehensive immigration reform that deals with all of the issues around illegal immigration including border security and fixing our broken system.”

Naturally, this has become irresistable fodder for her opponents.

“When it takes two weeks and six different positions to answer one question on immigration, it’s easier to understand why the Clinton campaign would rather plant their questions than answer them,” said Barack Obama spokesman Bill Burton, referring to the Clinton campaign’s admission that aides had staged a question for her at an Iowa event.

The Democrats debate tomorrow night at 8:00 pm on CNN. Wolf Blitzer has promised a question on illegal immigrants; no word yet on whether he will also ask about waffles.

I feel inspired:
They Call Her Flipper! Flipper!
Faster than lightning!
No one you see, is smarter than she!
And we know Flipper
Lives in a state full of liberals,
Lying, who cares?, it’s natural you see!
Everyone hates the Queen of the Sea
Ever not kind and honest is she….
Thank you, thank you [bow].
This mea culpa was so amazingly predictable … gee, and just in time for tomorrow’s debate. Her statement is so parsed and polished as to be a completely overt sham.
“I support Governor Spitzer’s decision today to withdraw his proposal,” [obviously, it’s because he doesn’t have the votes to pass it right now, and his poll numbers are in the tank, and she’s hoping to get the public’s attention away from it]
Clinton said in a statement. “As president, I will not support driver’s licenses for undocumented people… [that’s right, because she wants to give them all “documents” first (as if it was all somehow a big clerical error)! If you give the illegals “documents,” they then have the ability to get legal licenses (of course, making the big assumption that the documents they are giving you, in order to show who they are are even valid). But I guess she doesn’t think we’re smart enough to get any of that. If she was anymore transparent, she’d be a ghost.
