Surprised by Rudy Giuliani’s pregnant silence on the comprehensive immigration bill? Ryan Sager, reacting to Mark Levin’s post, tries to get the ball rolling. Political problem is — Rudy’s pro-immigration views are likely to get him into hotter water with today’s conservatives than his pro-choice views already have. Last week he demonstrated he can escape the worst of the latter conundrum. In coming weeks, he will have to find a way to pull off an even more impressive stunt, and not just for his own good. A Republican Party that becomes synonymous with closed borders and Romney-like raids on illegal workplaces will doom itself to political extinction. One doesn’t have to be as snootily sanctimonious as Fareed Zakaria is in today’s Washington Post and this week’s Newsweek to understand that on the basic economic issue, he has an irrefutable point.
