The Dream Is Dead

A mob of left-wing protesters from “National People’s Action” swarmed Karl Rove’s Northwest D.C. house Sunday, demanding that the White House support Rep. Chris Cannon’s amnesty for illegal-alien teenagers commonly called the DREAM Act (H.R.1684 in the House, S. 1545 in the Senate). This wasn’t a polite group of people silently standing witness, but a bussed-in mob of hundreds, swarming Rove’s house, pounding on the windows, frightening his family. The stunt was an enormous political blunder, of course, since the Bush Administration is the most pro-amnesty GOP White House we will ever see, and they weren’t even against the DREAM Act amnesty — they just weren’t pushing it in Congress. Not much chance of that now, is there?
