George and I

George Bush to me: America needs to conduct this debate on immigration in a reasoned and respectful tone...all of us need to keep some things in mind.We cannot build a unified country by inciting people to anger or playing on anyone's fears or exploiting the issue of immigration for political gain.

Me to George Bush: Oh, F-off, traitor.

I felt the same way when I saw him trying to drag that red herring across the trail. One would think the fact that all his phony posturing on the racial aspect of this having won him nothing more than disdain from minorities might clue him in on why his policy dooms us and stiffen his flaccid little spine to do something that wasn't motivated purely by political gain. Yeah, right.
Well, failure has never dissuaded him from a policy's worthiness, after all.

"...exploiting the issue...for political gain." Can you believe this guy?
It's almost to the point that I want to watch him suffer as his administration implodes all around him. Too bad it's the country's loss.

For some bizarre reason I keep thinking one of these times he's going to step up to the plate and Do The Right Thing, kind of like how every time I see Titanic I hope that this time it's gonna miss that iceberg - but it always ends the same way.

Hey, Karl Rove, I just came up with the Repbulican slogan for the upcoming mid-term elections:
"Hey, hey, ho, ho, Western Culture's got to go."
It may not fit on a bumper sticker, but it will fit on the Republican party's tombstone.

At his press conference Bush stated his motivation was "we're not going to discriminate against people". Because preventing the entire Mexican underclass to enter the our country and reside within our borders is, apparently, a malign and intolerable form of bigotry.

"We're not going to discriminate"

Most people actually believe that it would be unconstitutional to make choices about who we let into the country, when in fact congress has complete authority over who it allows in. I doubt even the most liberal court would think it has a say in it.

But the average ordinary American thinks we can't discriminate among would-be immigrants. Peter Brimelow pointed this out in Alien Nation way back when - and here our idiot president is being just as ignorant on national tv. The depths of his perfidy know no bounds.

Perfity? Do you think he is that calculated? I just think he's stupid. So what can be his political goal. These illegals can't vote. Or can they?

No, only citizens can vote. But the businesses that employ them do fund the Republican party. For Bush's motivation, see Steve Sailer: "The Bush Administration has seemed never to notice that Mexico is not the 51st state, but a foreign country--one that is engaged in a slow-motion invasion of America. . . . Why is Bush doing this? I have suggested that his motives are dynastic--that he is selfishly sacrificing the GOP to build a family vehicle, much like Brian Mulroney sacrificed the Canadian Progressive Conservative party in a vain effort to build a personal fief in the French-speaking province of Quebec. Brenda Walker speculates he is a 'MexiChurian Candidate.' What he is not is an American patriot."

Bush says:

We cannot build a unified country by inciting people to anger

Logical conclusion: Then he should shut the hell up.

"No, only citizens can vote."

Tell that to (former) Congressman Bob Dornan.

The Republican from Orange County, CA was defeated for re-election in 1998 by pro-illegal immigration Democrat Loretta Sanchez. But Dornan smelled a rat, and he persuaded the Federal Elections Commission to conduct an investigation into the election results. The FEC determined conclusively that at least 15,000 votes cast for Sanchez were from illegal aliens who Sanchez' campaign had fraudulently registered to vote. She won the election by 14,000 votes. Dornan wanted to challenge the election outcome in court, but the Republican National Committee refused to offer him any support. The reason? Dornan had a long, staunch record of being anti-illegal immigration, and the RNC decided they wanted Republicans friendlier to Hispanics to represent Orange County in the future.

There is also considerable evidence that Democratic Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano won her close re-election race in 2002 thanks to thousands of votes cast by illegal aliens who were able to vote in that state's elections, since -at the time anyway- VOTERS DID NOT NEED TO SHOW PROOF OF LEGAL RESIDENCY TO VOTE IN THE ELECTION, if you can believe it!

Ziel, I can't hide my pleasure in your seeing Bush as I saw him prior to his election.
Now, I'm not saying Gore would have been better, and I didn't vote for him either. We have to honestly admit we'll never know and that we can't speculate about what Gore would have done as the entire geopolitical landscape may/would have been different. What would Gore have done about Iraq? Probably nothing, and that would have been cool. Would we have these high gas prices? Who knows but doubtful given Gore's passion for alternative sources and fuel economy. Would the economy (stock market) have soared as it has? Probably, since global unrest has been the main anchor and would not have existed to the extent it does currently. Considering what it has done (prior to last week), it is safe to assume it would have done at least as well.
9/11 - Who knows? I'm not by any means a Gore fan but I don't think he would have laid down and done nothing. And, he had a Republican congress. Maybe we would have concentrated on Afganistan and finding OBL rather than venturing off into the Iraqi adventure.
Immigration "Reform" -
This is just the latest Bush F-up.
- In the insurance negotiating business we call it "spliting the baby". You try and turn the sides against themselves so that they reach a compromise that no one wants or benefits from. The problem with that in this case is that Mexico and Central America (who we don't talk much about but are as big an "importer") have no down side. But, this is our country, our economy and our future. Let's hear the plans of McCain. Romney, Billary, Richardson and all the other '08 hopefuls. I'm sorry to say that Russert, who I respect, is falling down on dealing with this issue and confronting potential candidates. I'd love to hear Pat Moynihan's take on this "crisis" that has been going on for 20+ years.

I recall that even Moynihan lost his ability to tell the truth in his later years. There is unfortunately impossible to talk or think clearly about this issue without understanding and addressing the actual racial and ethnic aspects of it, and therefore it is impossible for people like Russert make any contributions to the discussion.

Mulroney simply blew it from his own arrogance AND the failed Meech Lake & Charolottetown Accords AND and the hated Goods and Services tax.

Mulroney's desperation to cling to power new no limits. In the end, the Canadian populace as a whole (English & French) rejected him and the Conservative Party. How he tried "in vain" to procure Quebec as his fiefdom is news to me. How could he? Everyone hated him.
