That is VERY obvious- GWB is erroneously trading Republican votes from the base, from recently acquired Blacks, and from many responsible Latinos for a very few votes from illegal immigrants. They are ALL gonna vote Dem, if they vote at all, which they probably won't. So it's an idiotic position for a republican president, even if he ain't running.
First, I thank God Bush was chosen over Goreghoul or Kerryfairy. That said, I tend to think Bush is cuzzying up to Fox (who rules a modern feudal state) because a revolution in Mexico that installs a Chavez type leadership would be very bad for the U.S. Link that to the lobbying pressure from business to keep the supply of cheap (below American average wages) labor flowing and I don't think there is any mystery why things on illegals are in a stalemate ... it is a given that the democrap party is salivating over illegals, as a new race problem ---and the democraps have a long history of exploiting racial tension they do so much to create-- and the new source of dumbed down voters for democrats and a broad field from which to defraud votes.
