Power Line Reacts to Fred Barnes

Power Line responds to Fred Barnes' article, discussed here yesterday at some length. Barnes theorizes that if the House does not capitulate on tough border security and pass something close to the Senate bill, Republicans will lose the House and the President will be weakened.

Power Line's Paul Mirengoff feels as I do, that while doing nothing about the immigration and border situation would not bode well for Republicans at the polls, the House passing a bad bill that's weak on border enforcement might be even worse -- quite possibly, as David Frum suggests, catastrophic.

Monday Update: Rush Limbaugh said today on the radio that Fred Barnes "could not be more wrong" in his insistence that the House capitulate and agree to the Senate immigration bill.
