Abandoned his plan, his very unpopular plan.
Gov. Eliot Spitzer is abandoning his plan to issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, saying that opposition is just too overwhelming to move forward with such a policy.
The governor, who is to announce the move formally on Wednesday, said in an interview Tuesday night that he did not reach the decision easily.
“You have perhaps seen me struggle with it because I thought we had a principled decision, and it’s not necessarily easy to back away from trying to move a debate forward,” he said.
But he came to believe the proposal would ultimately be blocked, he said, either by legal challenges, a vote by the Legislature to deny financing for the Department of Motor Vehicles or a refusal by upstate county clerks to carry it out.
“I am not willing to fight to the bitter end on something that will not ultimately be implemented,” the governor said, “and we also have an enormous agenda on other issues of great importance to New York State that was being stymied by the constant and almost singular focus on this issue.”
He leaves Clinton hanging but he also makes a very valid point which is what I bolded above... he isn't willing to waste the time to fight to the bitter end on something that won't be implemented.
HARRY REID, NANCY PELOSI AND CREW... you can all learn something from Spitzer here if you have the brain cells left in your head to understand.
I refer you to two previous posts showing that Spitzer is showing the brains that none of the above are capable of using.
Wasting time on something you know will fail.
Fighting to the bitter end about something you know won't be implemented.
How do they know it won't be implemented? I am SO glad you asked!!!!
Because they failed on the last 40...thats right...40 times they tried it.
The Politico tells us that the Democratic politicians have now forced 40 votes on bills limiting President Bush’s war policy.
Not a single one has passed both chambers, even though both are run by Democrats.
40...think about that for a second, 40 times they have done the same thing over and over again and expected a different result.
That is even more insane than I implied on that last post describing some of those losses.
I guess some people are incapable of learning and take some sort of enjoyment out of being publicly humiliated.
Really not a problem because I kind of enjoy watching them get publicly spanked over and over again.
