Rule Of Law or Just Political Football?

I have previously stated my opinion (Illegal Alien or Undocumented Immigrant) on the Rule of Law and the difference between a Republic and a Democracy. On May 20, 2007 Senator Charles Schumer appeared on Fox News Sunday to debate several issues with Senator Lindsey Graham. During the discussion Sen. Schumer used that key phrase, rule of law. Unfortunately for us the good Senator uses that phrase when it suites his political agenda and ignores it when it gets in his way. Senator Schumer said,
This is serious stuff. The rule of law, putting law above whether you're a Democrat or Republican, is at stake. The attorney general has violated it. We ought to be doing everything we can to get a new attorney general.

Schumer was talking about Attorney General Gonzalez and the firing of those federal judges. The Senator is certainly welcome to his opinion, but it is far from certain that Gonzalez did anything wrong, much less broke any law. Now being a Senator, Schumer has taken an oath to obey the laws of the United States and to protect it from invasion (read the Constitution). On February 27, 2006 the Senator choose to ignore that fact when he addressed a mostly Irish audience and spoke of "immigration". Senator Schumer said,
I love America, and I truly believe that the more Irish there are here, the better America is...The worst thing we could do is close the door, not only for those who want to come, but for those who are already here.

Once again, we should put forth some effort on immigration enforcement before we attempt immigration law reform.

Senator Schumer, please honor your oath of office and protect us from invasion - it's the Rule of Law - close the door already!

##That's my opinion##

I have never heard a speech from Chuck . Schumer that did not make me think that .he sounds like an idiot.
