“Bush called Sutton a friend.”

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

Don’t get me started!

President Bush sharply challenged critics of his stalled immigration-overhaul efforts on Thursday

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.

Jorge W. refuses to listen to the American people. We don't want amnesty and certainly NOT to benefit his Chamber Of Commerce buddies. He should have learned something from the last few months. Apparently not and I'm very disappointed.

I don't hate Bush. I just am fed up with his arrogance and his refusal to respect the wishes of the American people on immigration. He dismisses his critics and doesn't want to find common ground with them. I respect the man but I just don't agree with him on amnesty. That doesn't make me a DU knee-jerk rabid Bush hater.

Everyone kept telling me to campaign and vote for him because he WOULD do something after the election. You know, he simply couldn't take everything on after 9/11.

Now his robe-kissers say Bush always said the same thing and that we were supposed to know. After all, 9/11 changed nothing, right?

The few remaining supporters don't like when people call him Jorge or Boosh (not saying you or anyone did, just guessing).. even though Bush's company name is Arbusto something or other.

You're joking right?

Bush is portrayed as a sort of Mexican Devil torturing border agents, portrayed as a Monkey , "curious George" called stupid, and having a serious "learning disability".... (as the Dems have characterized him since 2000)...and you don't consider any of that "hateful". LOL

Maybe not... people feel he prefers to serve Mexico's interests rather than enforce our immigration laws. There's not wrong with the laws on the books except our Chief Executive thinks its too hard to enforce them. He should try explaining that permissive attitude of his to Zina Linnik family. Au contraire, George, not all values stop at Rio Grande. We don't want dream stealers here who destroy the lives of legal immigrants and Americans by breaking our laws. Deport them now!

Yeah, that is out of control. They truly are blinded by hate and have been for so long now. I heard some caller on C-Span yesterday saying something about Hitler and Bush and I tuned him out. That’s insane.

The liberal love, I can just feel it... And the sad thing is - they don’t realize how much closer Bush is to the Clintons than the general public knows.

Such an intriguing mixture of a strawman argument with the fallacy of the complex question. I must have hit a nerve for you to react with a load like that.

In the spirit of your own post, what is about lying and slander that appeals to you? Is it your hobby, or are you afflicted with a compulsion that you can't control? I can see why you admire Sutton, you see your own reflection in him.

Voted for him twice. In '04 I stood out in the rain for four hours (in Ohio, therefore securing victory) to do so. I agree with his Iraq policy and know that the economy is strong. But he has abdicated his role as a protector of US borders. For some reason he loves illegals and I will not abide it.

I can see his reasoning considering they are not legitimate agents of the border patrol.

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

Well then, I guess DU was just a little ahead of the curve! LOL.

Well, having said that, lets just say we caught on much later than them, but for entirely different reasons.

Their hatred of HIM was because of their hatred of America.

Our new found hatred of HIS POLICIES is because of our hatred of America being destroyed.

A small difference there ya' just MIGHT want to keep in mind! ;-)

“NASHVILLE, Tenn. - 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. “

We already have a guest worker program. There are 12 million illegals in it. Now get them all registered, give them a year to finish up and if they want any shot at becoming a citizen, they take their entire family, go home then reapply for citizenship.

No magic here. Of course, build the fence first.

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.
