President Bush sharply challenged critics of his stalled immigration-overhaul efforts on Thursday, suggesting that failure to pass a guest-worker program could trigger a labor shortage in the United States.

Hey Bush, listen up, you still don't get it!

The faster you complete step 1: Secure the borders, the faster we can move on to step 2: Guest workers.

Unfortunately, Bush will no doubt piss and moan about his failed amnesty for the rest of his term instead of actually doing his constitutional duty to protect America, which includes securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws.

I garden too! But not in a pantsuit.

You can tell from the pic that she doesn’t do that every day! LOL

I really like the whole First family. I don’t expect them to be like me. I just don’t want their ‘help’ rewarded with citizenship for breaking our laws.

Mr. President, check the U.S. welfare rolls, to
fill the jobs over-subsidized Lazy-Americans aren't doing.


Reform welfare into WORKfare.

Enforce the law.

If you can’t, or more likely, won’t, then resign.

So Scooter Libby needs a pardon for 30 months but our Border Patrol agents can suffer over a decade because Bush won't pardon them.

Worth repeating.

These men were convicted by a jury of their peers after listening to the facts" as presented by U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, said Bush.

As misrepresented by scumbag, crony, hack Johnny Nifong SuttonFong.

I hope Sutton Fong suffers the same payback as his role model and I hope it happens PDQ.

The part I MOST love about this thread is how GW and Johnny Sutton you know, the objective Federal Prosecutor are such goooooooooooooood friends. I mean Bush didn’t say they were lovers but he certainly let it be known in the thread he and Sutton were grrrrrrrrrrrreat friends !!!

I like the president's wife and kids too. But the president just has a huge blind spot when it comes to immigration and national sovereignty. What good does it do on the end to win the war on terror when you fail to protect the backyard?

“Bush called Sutton a friend.”

Yes, Presidente Jorge Boosh has a lot of “friends”.

Don’t get me started!

Well that's fine. Guy's entitled to his own opinion.

But that doesn't mean we have to vote for him, or any one else who thinks like that.

In fact, he's gone to great lengths to conceal his real opinions. In the '04 campaign, immigration was barely mentioned...and all the Republicans stood by, thinking that he really wasn't all that pink on the issue, that it was just an election ploy.

Wrong. Right after the election, the first thing he talked about was "boy oh boy ahm gonna git me some amnesty" -- which was a puzzle to everyone, because that was exactly what he did not talk about. BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE COLLAPSED HIS BASE IF THEY KNEW HIS REAL INTENTIONS.

So Mr. Jorge is entitled to his opinion. But....he lied and concealed it in the past, and there isn't any reason why we should go along with it.

These hate Bush threads are as bad as or worse than anything I’ve seen on DU.

Amen, bro. All too true.
