    Ms. Grimes; Let me remind you that just because a question is asked doesn't mean it has to be answered. It is obvious to me that the question asked was a cynical attempt to distract from the issues that the majority of taxpayers are interested in. Immigration is a serious concern but as illegals self-deport as our economy faces a fiscal disaster it is a non-starter with this administration. Most of us take questions from Soros inspired media talking heads reading from prepared script with a grain of salt. Much like POTUS reading teleprompters written by others using the same talking points.

    The questions that matter have to do with Wisconsin's failed recall elections which may reflect the country's moods when it comes to unions, Occupy Wall Street dupes, a rogue DOJ under a stonewalling Holder; Fast and Furious and security leaks from within the administration that kill people for political gain, water rights denied Tombstone because of a questionable sighting of a Mexican Spotted owl near that cities water source, and the list goes on.

    As for Ron Barber, I can find little information of what he did during Vietnam when many of us were drafted. I see only softball questions from the media and nothing of substance beyond following the party line. Scaring the seniors with threats against medicare is a non-starter. That can has been kicked down the road for as long as I can remember and nobody in the liberal/progressive group has a clue to address it beyond sacrificing our military and taxing the rich. Weakening our security posture and taxing the uber-rich 100% will not make a dent against a 16 trillion dollar deficit.

    You talk in platitudes but have no understanding as to economics, fiscal austerity, job cuts in the public sector, borrowing money from China, etc. Why haven't you or the liberals made an intelligent appraisal of why the stock market took off the day the Wisconsin recall votes were counted? The real problem you fail to address has to do with what questions are asked or not asked that is the problem, not the answers you expect to use as a diversion. Either you don't know what a useful idiot is or you don't know what you are talking about. Here is a predictor for you; name the countries referred to as PIIGS and whether or not that is the future of our our country if you insist on talking about only immigration?

    Very weak article that shows a complete lack of understanding of the importance of Congressional action on Obamacare and the Bush tax cuts in the next 6 months. Even Clinton wants to extend the Bush tax cuts.

    Can't wait to see what you will write when conservative Jonathan Paton hits the campaign trail here against tax and spender Ann Kirkpatrick whose great trick is the disappearing act she puts on at her town hall meetings when things get hot.

    What has Barber answered? That would be nothing. His campaign is centered completely around going after Mr. Kelly while at the same time presenting nothing new and certainly nothing on how to fix the $16 Trillion debt.

    If this is the best insight this paper can offer, the paper would do the readership well by not participating in an endeavor that it does not understand.
