Grijalva Sees Problem With Guns, Customs; Not With Illegal Crossings

 Representative Raul Grijalva has been busy this last couple weeks, doing everything he can to shore up his base while Teapartiers rally to defeat him in November. Grijalva is heaping servings for his constituents in an effort to garner votes. Since the first of June, fearful of the backlash that is mounting against liberals, Grijalva has bulleted his facebook page like a teenage girl in shop class. Pie anyone?

Illegal immigrants: After calling for a "targeted boycott of his home state of Arizona over 1070, Grijalva has been holding hearings on Capitol hill featuring crying children, in order to fulfill his promise to get rid of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose success is the inspiration behind 1070 and the bane of Amnesty proponents like Grijalva.

Environmental Wackos: Seven different articles on oil spill "regulations" (like Obama, Grijalva waited until early June to comment on the spill, including quoting ubberliberal blog Grist that spending 1 billion "retrofitting houses" is comparable to charging BP 40 billion for its cleanup? (liberals and their logic escapes me too).

Gays and Lesbians (and liberals who feel warm and fuzzy about them): Grijalva quotes an incomplete longitudinal study of adopted children of lesbians (created and funded by a lesbian organization out of San Francisco and praising the University of Arizona for funding partner benefits (in response to a lawsuit by gay faculty members. U of A faculty was one of Grijalva's largest contributors last election cycle, go figure).

Tax Junkies: Grijalva quotes a Progressive poll that says taxpayers "overwhelmingly support" increasing taxes on the rich. More manipulated research for liberals but, what the hey, if it motivates elitist liberals to send money, to Grijalva's war chest, who cares?
Veterans: Praising $400,000 to house homeless veterans in Tucson. (also praising the thousands of "jobs created or saved" by ObamaPAC stimulus, while 2 million more were lost).

Gun Control Freaks: Quoting articles that call terrorists "incompetent" while decrying the sale of guns in the US (aparently, Grijalva believes terrorists wouldn't be able to kill people if guns were outlawed in the United States), District 7's Schizophrenic Congressional Rep is now pondering the value of  . . . enforcing the border. Some might preemptively suppose that under pressure from constituents, the former school bureaucrat had seen the light on immigration. Nothing could be further from the truth. Unfortunately for law abiding citizens, Grijalva's idea of enforcing the border means increasing spending on customs checkpoints (seemingly, all those dogs and agents aren't doing there job and more money will make Cartels use them rather than driving through the desert and shooting innocent ranchers).

Will Grijalva's "Triangulation" of jobless poor, liberal professors, and Union money launderers enough to get him reelected? or will the wave of change reach even district 7? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that he knows he is in trouble. Or does it?
