Very True and it is why I will not vote for another RINO. Mclame was the last time and I only voted for that moron because of Palin.

The GOP will change or go the way of the Whigs.

What was the last generation of Bushes to be vaguely in touch with America? (And not just putting on a good act, like W.)

GW is speaking in hyperbole and coming off like an idiot. This is when I really don’t like him. He is exposing himself to be a woolly globalist. Our sovereign borders means nothing to him. Running up ruinous trade deficits mean nothing to him

Like the other elites GW and all the Bushs are well insulated from the chaos their policies cause in middle class America. IF GW was still president he would still be pimping free trade with Mexico and going on about what wonderful partners they are. At least the Kenyan doesn’t waste time doing this. GW had a hard on for Mexico and its people ....It’s an elitist kind of thing

We could use a large dose of xenophobia. I’m sick of foreigners coming here and not paying taxes and ripping off America in other ways. Sick of them coming here and immediately getting affirmative action jobs and college scholarships. Someone can immigrate from Vietnam or Africa and get a Bill Gates Millennium college scholarship. While white kids whose families have been here for generations and fought our wars are excluded

Jorge is morphing into another Jimmy Carter.

He promised to stay out of politics.
But he just couldn’t resist taking another swipe at the only people who treated him decently during his presidency.

I already knew Bush was a Globalist when I voted for him. I only did so out of fear of Democrats. I never liked Bush or his father. I liked Reagan and I liked JKK until the Bay of Pigs.

I voted for him too - twice. The alternatives were Gore and Kerry. I thank him for Roberts and Alito; the rest of his administration was pretty much a shambles.

Except for Eisenhower and Reagan, we’ve been badly governed since WWII. Bush is simply representative of the shallow, politically correct, short-sighted mindset that afflicts our “elites.”

Bush is a NWO shill. I am amazed that so many are deceived by it.

I'm not. It's all about the imagery. Cowboy hat + pick-up truck = good, home-spun American. Throw in an (R) and most folks brains clicked into auto-pilot and are still stuck there.

The alternative is to accept that Bush is not, and never was, on America's side.

There never has been one. Duh-bya comes from a long line of Wall Street bankers and politicians. Most forget this.

This has not been accidental. Don't forget that Bush comes from a long line of "elites". His actions are not short-sighted when you accept the fact that the "elites" are, and always have been, Bush's real constituents.

It's the reason Bush was elected. It's the reason for his domestic policies and his foreign policies.

On the statement regarding early views on the mass immigration to the United States, the President is quoted as saying this was argued at an earlier time, that there were, "too many Jews and Italians".

I would respectfully point out that even without virtually any safety net of public assistance, those people arrived and wept tears of relief or joy. This in the early turn of the last century. Then they were on their own, or with ethnic support groups. Their lot was undeniably a hard one at first. They became Americans.

Today, certain of these latest immigrants not only detest America, they try to leech off the system they dislike. Crying slogans for supporting an other culture that they fled and now wish to transplant. Others openly preach some form of domination over America.

It is just not right!

I can’t believe I actually voted for this progressive POS.

Do you feel now Gore and Kerry would have been a better choice?

I've been anti-Bush since 2003 - before it was cool - for a conservative, that is. You can ask any of my DC Chapter friends. I told them long ago Bush was effing everything up. John Derbyshire, read below, explains my sentiments to a tee.

Eight Wasted Years
...Margaret Thatcher used to talk about the “ratchet effect.” When the Left gets power, she said, they drive everything Left; when the Right gets power, they slow the Leftward drive, perhaps even halt it for a spell; but nothing ever gets moved to the Right. U.S. politics in the 21st century so far bears out this dismal analysis. What does the Right have to show for eight years of a Republican presidency? I supported George W. Bush in 2000 because I thought he had a conservative bone in his body somewhere. I supported him in 2004 because I thought him the lesser of two evils. At this point, I wouldn’t let the fool park his car in my driveway. Bruce Bartlett was right, every damn word...
Bill Gertz interview on Hannity and Colmes
Gertz: Well he casts himself as a compassionate conservative and I argue that he's neither. That his administration is neither. He's done tremendous damage to the conservative movement...

I promise -- if the Bushes, Clintons, Kennedys, Doles, Obamas, and whatever other wannabee dynasty from the recent two or so decades of treason and national destruction, just goes away and shuts up forever, I promise, promise, promise, I will quit posting and speaking the embarrassing, awful truths about their corruption, treason, and destructive actions against the USA and its citizens.

Otherwise, no deal. They all suck eggs. They all despise the US Constitution and the USA. They all despise the American people. They all despise "a republican form of government" of, for, and by the people.

If I suddenly became Lord High Grand Poo-Bah, I would start prosecuting a whole bunch of government officials for countless civil rights violations, but I would offer up a deal to many of them: prosecutions will generally be done in order of expiring statute of limitations. Prosecution of people for certain lesser, but significant, civil rights violations could be suspended indefinitely if those people agree that: (1) the statute of limitations with regard to their offenses will be waived, but they will not be charged for those offenses provided that (2) they never again seek any position of government trust, or occupy any government post where they would have discretionary authority over anyone who is not a government official, or who has discretionary authority over anyone who is not a government official, etc; (3) If the agents ever again occupy or seek to occupy a position of authority which is forbidden by (2), they will be prosecuted for their earlier offenses.

I suspect many government agents would realize that they'd be well-advised to accept such a deal. While I wouldn't be terribly happy about letting the crooks in government escape punishment, the more agents decide to voluntarily leave power, the more practical it would be to prosecute those who remain.
