On Bush's Betrayal

This is a wonderful bit from Laura Ingraham's show yesterday. She sums up what conservatives (those who supported George Bush) are feeling regarding his condeming us as bigots and non-patriots for opposing this "comprehensive" immigration bill. In a word, betrayed.

Sadly, even Linda Chavez, whom I respect and admire greatly, chalks up our reluctance to bigotry and racism.

But it's not just those xenophobe conservatives who are upset. Some libs are starting to figure out it's not all lemonade and gumdrops.

Let me repeat: opposing this bill is not racism. We had such an amnesty bill over 20 years ago under Ronald Reagan, and it didn't work. What makes the proponents of this one think it will succeed where the previous one didn't? Border control is a joke. Not only can poor, unskilled people desperate for work slip in, but those who wish to blow us to smithereens can as well. And legal immigrants who have applied for the proper documentation and consideration to be citizens must be wondering why they bothered to follow the rules when 12 million people stand to benefit from their lawbreaking ways.

And if these people are really doing the jobs Americans won't do, what will happen when they attain legal status, citizenship? Who will do the jobs then? As Americans they'll no longer have to hide, and employers will have to pay them more, if only to cover taxes, Social Security, etc. Will those same employers who have benefited from paying illegals peanuts suddenly be thrilled about paying them what those born and bred here expect to be paid?

Control the borders. Support the law as it stands now. Prosecute greedy employers who hire illegals under the table. Deport those with serious criminal records. Then we can begin to figure out what to do with the rest.

What's so hard to understand?

Man, are you guys going to be sorry you asked Thompson to run. Knee jerkers.

So are the "conspiracists" right about GHWB and GWB being "Globalists"? Is it all part of a "grand plan"? Is WND paranoid or visionary?

Sometimes I wonder if this perceived push towards combining the U.S., Canada, and Mexico are seen as an unavoidable necessity, in case "we" have to isolate ourselves from the rest of the world, as it "goes nuts", sliding into an unholy mix of Socialism and Islamism.

Thanks for your contribution to the debate on immigration. Ann Coulter had a great column yesterday about "W"'s betrayal.

Don't really understand mudkitty's comment above. And I'm making my hamster run as fast as it can.

Thank you for pointing out that it was papa Reagan who screwed the pooch on amnesty. Noonan stuck a knife in W's back recently on this issue, but failed to mention it was her boss that contributed to the deep distrust.
