Could be a mis-quote. The media is notorious for those.

***Could be a mis-quote.***

It better be.
My BP is now about 370/120 and my head is ready to explode.

If Dubya refuses to enforce the laws he swore an oath to uphold because of his 'feelings' he has NO business being POTUS. He should resign and go work at Bleeding Hearts 'R' Us.

That quote is just unf*king believably STOO-PID. <<<-head shaking->>>

(I gotta go take a pill}

King said Rove told lawmakers Bush is sincere about enforcement. But, he added, "The president doesn't want to enforce immigration law because he's afraid he'll inconvenience someone who wants to come into the country for a better life."

Could be a mis-quote. The media is notorious for those.

But which is the misquote? I don't think even MSNBC would misstate what Representative King said. It's possible that Mr. King is liberally paraphrasing Rove, but the comment is entirely consistent with the President's (and Rove's) previous statements about the hard-working, deprived mojados who come here looking for an honest day's trabajo. This kind of "compassionate conservatism" reminds me of when Ronald Reagan made the second worst mistake of his Presidency by dealing arms to the Iranians 'cause he couldn't stand to hear (CIA agent) Bill Buckley's recorded screams under torture. Sometimes you've got to be a tad bit hard-nosed and remember that you were elected President of the United States, not Presidente at large to the World.
