Blunt Words

House Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R.-Mo.) gets it. "The voters calling my office are talking about immigration and gas prices — that’s it," Blunt told Human Events Political Editor John Gizzi last week. "If lobbying reform is a voter concern, I sure haven’t heard about it."

Blunt, who broke with the President when he opposed including a guest-worker program in the immigration reform measure enacted by the House in December, predicted that how Republicans deal with immigration and gas will be key to the GOP’s performance in November.
