3. Bush supported comprehesive immigration reform, a path to citizenship for 12 million undocumented immigrants and provisions of the DREAM Act. Romney opposes all of it.

And what is it with you and Newt? Your boy is out. You don't have to like it, but you may as well accept it.
Sorry, I have no need to twist things. I am just amused at FReepers confirming the writings of Alex Seitz=Wald. The far left meets the far right and it turns out they are one and the same.
LOL. I know. It is blowing my mind that folks here are openly discussing a talking point that a Regime loving site is pumping out like is is real news and info.
Doesn’t anyone check sources before posting anymore? Pretty soon we will be posting stuff from HuffPo like it is legit.
People actually get paid to write this drivel BS?
“Romney opposes all of it.”
Well I hope this is ture, but doesn’t Romney have a way of “evolving” after the election?
But Romney is a political mercenary. IF he wins, conservatives need to hold his feet to a very big fire.
Affirming the words of Alex Seitz=Wald? I missed it - did he call him a liar?
The ‘rats and rino’s are one - let’s keep it honest even though Romney is the topic.
GW Bush was a strong leader. We were fortunate to have him at the helm following 9/11. Maybe someday he’ll get the credit due him.
You will never get a man right wing enough to win in federal politics. Washington and the federal union is too corrupt and powerful to give up what it has taken.
For all the good that it will do, but I wont love him, and if he don’t back off when we take back our ground with State actions, Ill gladly feed him to the sharks.
Your right Washington has the game rigged in its favor and we need to stop playing their game. But that nessitates we also stop playing on their field. We have to ignore the presidency and undercut them from the outside. Nully and isolate Washington from the outside.
Send Mitt to Washington with one simple directive leave our States alone or we will find a democrat we can beat into doing that. We don’t have to expect him to do anything we just have to expect him to sit back and do nothing while we do the work.
But at the same time, we have got to do something. Conservatives aren't making any headway, we are merely trying to hold ground and losing fast. The country is sinking under the sheer weight of illegals, welfare-saps, EBT-abusers, non-producers/non-taxpayers, and other assorted liberal gimme-gimmes.
The whole thing is just incredibly frustrating.
He was a very good leader for the time. People forget that.
He didn’t do everything right...but what president has?
History will tell the tale.
