Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Jeb- You're absolutely right

From the Palm Beach Post-

WASHINGTON — Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called a Colorado congressman "a nut" Wednesday after the fellow Republican likened Miami to a Third World country.

"What a nut," Bush told reporters in Tallahassee. "I'm just disappointed. First of all, he's from my own party. He's a Republican. He doesn't represent my views or the views of most Republicans in this state.

"Miami is a beautiful place. ... I love Miami," Bush said. "It's insulting for someone who really doesn't know the community, its heartbeat, to say those things."

The public spat began 10 days ago when U.S. Rep. Thomas Tancredo was attending a gathering of conservative activists at The Breakers in Palm Beach and said in an interview with WorldNetDaily, a conservative online newspaper: "Look at what has happened to Miami. It has become a Third World country.

"You just pick it up and take it and move it someplace. You would never know you're in the United States of America. You would certainly say you're in a Third World country."

Tancredo chairs the bipartisan House Immigration Reform Caucus and led House efforts this year to authorize a fence along the U.S.-Mexico border.
I've got no problem with the border fence. It's Tancredo's other ideas, like eliminating birthright citizenship, that make him and some others in the anti-illegal aliens crowd a bunch of kooks. What the Congressman said about Miami just re-inforces his image and Governor Bush was right on target calling Tancredo the nut he really is.
