"what is about lying and slander that appeals to you? "

I would answer if I had any idea what that means.

"But I just don't get how people can become so personally hateful toward Bush on this issue."

Because we're all paying for his views. In Emergency Rooms and classrooms and auto accidents with Mexicans who are uninsured and who escape penalties levied against the rest of us because we have licenses.

With all due respect this is so whiney and pathetic.

As if being in an accident with an uninsured American citizen is Bush's fault too.

Or paying for lazy welfare American families and their kids is a reason to lose sleep at night.

The idea that you consider all these things an excuse to become hateful is really pathetic.

suggesting that failure to pass a guest-worker program could trigger a CHEAP labor shortage in the United States.

That's better.

"The idea that people have to see any opinion differing from their own as "hateful" is just plain sad."

OK, I have a different opinion from that of the idol worshippers who see halos of light behind Bush's head. Do you consider me hateful?

No, just silly. And a bit delusional.

American citizens have EVERY right to form militias. This is guaranteed under the the Bill of Rights. That Bush called the Minutemen "vigilantes" is HATEFUL!

Isn't that just another piece of paper Bush would rather forget?

OH, and he's very careful to not get caught saying things himself, but whenever there are battles of THE PEOPLE v. THE ELITES (Harriet Myers, Dubai Ports, amnesty for criminals), Bush sends out his jack booted thugs to call us names like bigots, sexists, xenophobes. Then he can stand there looking befuddled and tell us we are incapable of understanding what is good for the country.

At least the citizen belongs here and can be held to account for his actions through the courts. He probably has no alias or false ID or the ability to flee to another country.

You really need to think your position through. It's not gonna cut it here.

The President who never vetoed a spending bill, with a Republican Congress, went on about spending too much.

Every time I hear the joke speaking anymore my head hurts. How he can dishs out the crap he dishes out is beyond me.

It is Bush’s fault that over one million illegal aliens have entered the country during each of his years in office. His friend Clinton may have started the last mass migration when NAFTA passed, but things started spinning out of control in 2000 and haven’t slowed down. Unless you live in a border state, you wouldn’t see many of the effects until recently.

Source: Dept. of Homeland Security, 2003 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics,
September 2004. Table 39.(1997-2003)

Eleven to twelve million illegal immigrants currently reside in the United States thanks to this Administration's failure to secure our borders. The Bush Administration has refused to enforce the laws we have on the books and clearly did not make border security or immigration reform a priority until an election year. Last year, President Bush chose to only fund 210 extra Border Patrol agents after Congress authorized an additional 10,000 agents over five years. In addition, audits of employers who use illegals has declined from 8,000 under the Clinton Administration to 2,200 in 2003. In 2004, only THREE employers were fined for hiring illegal labor. This was down from 1999, when 417 businesses were fined. This failure is inexcusable.

...While the Bush Administration has neglected its duties, states and local government have borne the costs of cracking down on illegal immigration. This year, the President even proposed eliminating the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) which helps overburdened local municipalities deal with the costs of incarcerating illegals who commit crimes.

"...but I just don't get how people can become so personally hateful toward Bush on this issue."

He really crapped his hat full with the "See you at the signing" remark meant as a rib-jab to every American opposed to his STEALTH-AMNESTY.

His remark was meant as a slap at Conservatives who've lowered their opinions of the President and I believe that it was deliberate because Bush is not so stupid he can't fathom US public opposition. He was very vengeful in his comment and he's not attempted anything close to reconciliation but keeps his head stuck in the dirt and has become even more defiant on this issue.

That explains a lot. If it's 'invincible ignorance' it means you shouldn't waste your time, you're blameless. Wrong, but not accountable.

As apparently do 80% of Americans. The 20% who don't likely hire illegals, married illegals, or are harboring illegals....in other words, selfish greed/personal gain trumps FOLLOWING THE RULE OF LAW.

This man has LOST all credibility as a Republican, as a conservative, as an American and as a man.

I can’t even stand to watch his appearance on TV anymore or listen to his lame excuses for his failed border policies, tag-teaming up with John McCain and Ted Kennedy on amnesty, sucking up to the Mexicans, or making incredible comments about his good friend Sutton.

Any border guard who is defending me against illegal invaders and potential drug dealers and terrorist invaders is worth more than all the Bushes put together.

I’m sick of him. Singlehandedly he destroyed the Republican majority in Congress and is destroying the Republican Party with his obstinacy and obtuseness. Just as his father threw away the legacy of Ronald Reagan, this man threw away the legacy of Newt Gingrich and the hopes of the millions of Americans who put him in office - TWICE - myself included.

NO MORE BUSHES - EVER!!!!!

Donations from real people have dried up. All Bush has now is the Chamber of Commerce and the neocon chickenhawks, and that's not going to fill the coffers at the RNC. It's also not going to drive support for the war.
