Regarding Bush’s immigration speech last night, as described in “Bush’s Balancing Act” — it was just what I expected from a President who seems absolutely determined to go on treating his party’s base as a bunch of dumb hayseeds who can rolled one more time.
Who does he and his rich friends in both parties think they are fooling? It is just another amnesty, as usual, with worthless public relations promises to secure the borders. The amnesty will, of course, accomplish nothing, just like the one in 1986, except to encourage even more illegals to enter the U.S. — plus their families and other relatives.
It is quite obvious that our rich sneering elites in both parties love illegal immigration, and that they will keep it going no matter what.
At least the speech wasn’t as bad as Senator Bill “I’ll surrender to anyone” Frist, and his proposal that he floated recently for a “virtual fence” — electric eyes and infrared cameras.
Can’t you just imagine Frist and other political titans conferring on this? Hey, what we shall we call the camera idea — almost fence, electronic barrier — no wait, we need to stick the word “fence” in somewhere, to roll the rubes — I know! “Virtual fence”! Hey, the dumb peons will go for that! A perfect answer!
I notice he hasn’t used the phrase since then — I assume it went over like a lead balloon.
I also notice that the Wall Street Journal is being careful not to repeat its earlier proposals for a Constitutional amendment — “There shall be open borders.”p>That’s what our wonderful elites really want. br> —
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
