Another insightful analysis from Mr. Antle, for which I’m grateful.
I’d really like to figure out, however, how much of Republican senators’ support for the bill is driven by what we are hearing more and more about, if only by innuendo. Namely, the President’s desire for a domestic policy accomplishment that would serve as a notch in his legacy.
To whatever extent there is truth to the surmise, shame on him, and shame on any senator who would let such selfish interests influence his or her thinking on such a profoundly important matter.p>I don’t give a damn about Bush’s legacy, but I care passionately about the America which my children and especially my grandchildren will inherit. From everything I’ve read about this bill, I surmise that if it is passed into law then the America of the 21st Century will be vastly different, and worse, than the America in which I grew up. br> — C.

President Bush thinks citizens are being scared by using the word AMNESTY, and so they should be. When this North American Union supporter wants to give rewards to people that have come here illegally it is nothing but amnesty. Bush really wants no borders between Mexico and Canada, kiss America goodbye.
The main problem with this killer bill is government can not keep track of the people here on visas. Courts have said to deport someone and then they can not be found. Just how is a government that can not get passports out in a timely manner going to process millions of ILLEGALS. The answer is they will not be able to and when amnesty is granted, another flood of illegals will come here waiting for the next amnesty.
Until the government has proven that it can close our border, stop employers from hiring illegals and find visa jumpers, this bill has no right to pass.
Rep. Lofgren wants family reunification, well the answer here is for the people to go BACK home and be with their families. We did not ask them to come here and leave them.p>Another question, if you have to speak English to be a citizen, and only a citizen can vote, why do we print ballots in Spanish? That is a waste of taxpayer money. 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?
