A poor little rich boys club of Sheldon Adelson, Warren Buffet and Bill Gates get space in the Times to lecture the rest of us on the need for immigration reform.
I hate to single out one passage as 'Stupidest' amongst so many worthy entries, but this stands (slightly) apart:
The three of us vary in our politics and would differ also in our preferences about the details of an immigration reform bill. But we could without doubt come together to draft a bill acceptable to each of us. We hope that fact holds a lesson: You don’t have to agree on everything in order to cooperate on matters about which you are reasonably close to agreement. It’s time that this brand of thinking finds its way to Washington.
Other lessons might be that the parties need to trust each other, and the deal has to be enforceable in the courts. Neither Obama nor Holder will enforce the border security provisions of a comprehensive deal with any conviction; the Administration is more likely to be filing amicus briefs on behalf of various immigrant advocacy groups denouncing vafrious enforcement provisions as "racist".
