Borderline Dumb

August 2010
Newsweek;8/23/2010, Vol. 156 Issue 8/9, p24
The article casts a disparaging view on U.S. Republicans' emphasis on several emotion-laden issues in advance of the November, 2010 elections. Some conservative Republicans want to modify the 14th Amendment to deny automatic citizenship to those born to illegal immigrants. In the author's view Republicans would be better off focusing on ways to address a faltering U.S. economy.
