Hey El Bushie, Reagan gave it a chance. That did not work out very well.
We never hear you talk about ANY of Obama’s policies, but you are always
willing to attack conservatives who don’t agree with you.

Tom Tancredo is running for governor of Colorado again.

He's the only one who will do what needs to be done with illegals: deportation:

Dear George, you had your 8 years as POTUS, please keep your opinions to yourself. You will not criticize Obama, but you will criticize the conservatives in your party? Just, please, shut up.

Hey, W, tell Laura to pick up a mop and learn how to use it.

At the very least, she could talk a little sense into him, but he is a Bush, therefore, he is terminally stupid.

Sounds like a headline writer getting ahead of themselves.

NO ONE in the GOP is against immigration.

NO ONE.

And just like the MEDIA AND THE DEMOCRATS (but I repeat myself) try to define marriage as sodomites engaging in a relationship and try to define anyone opposing sodomy as a hatemonger, so too we MUST not allow these assclowns to tell us that we oppose immigration.

We oppose ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. PERIOD.

Go read the bill before spreading lies:

Democrats are pure evil socialists . Here are just a few horrors that democrats who wrote it put in this horrible Amnesty bill:

1. Amnesty for 30 million illegals
2. those 30 million new citizens will be allowed to bring in their extended family members from the 3rd world = 50 million more NEW 3rd world immigrants.
3. Amnesty forever to any 3rd world liar who claims political asylum (any Muslim). Michelle Bachman said this alone could bring in another 50 million 3rd world immigrants. total count 130 million new democrat voters so they can turn the USA into a socialist state.
4. all these new citizens will have more rights than Americans. a $5000 penalty for employers if they hire An American over an amnestied 3rd world immigrant
5. democrats import All these 130 million new democrat voters from the 3rd world so that democrats can turn the USA into a socialist/communist state where they will give all your property and money to these immigrants
6. a massive increase in work visas for many many occupations in many fields ,even professional ones
7. The democrats know if they can destroy liberty in the USA then the rest of the world will follow. this is the plan to destroy liberty in the world and install communism worldwide
8. Massive amounts of $ to community organizations to register these immigrants as democrats
9 .A 1200 page obamacare like bill doling out billions to democrat organizations
10. big brother crap

There are many more but I don’t have time to post them all

what are these Senators thinking voting for 1200 pages of communist evil?

Why aren’t we out in the street protesting this bill or at least melting the phone lines?

Give thievery a chance, too.

How about rape, robbery, drunk driving, ID theft and tax cheating? Why should we limit ourselves on the crimes we wish to forgive?

Get back to me when you are talking about LEGAL immigration, Georgie. Then we can talk about how many foreigners we need, and steps to control the border. Until then, I don't care what you say, the American people do not want the people who snuck in here to stay here.

Bush still sucks. Worst President Ever. And I include Carter and Obama in that.

This SOB won't give up on his "new America"....

For Bush it means a whole "new America". His dream.

THE "NEW AMERICAN"
..........<

We are now one of the largest Spanish-speaking nations in the world. We're a major source of Latin music, journalism and culture.

Just go to Miami, or San Antonio, Los Angeles, Chicago or West New York, New Jersey ... and close your eyes and listen. You could just as easily be in Santo Domingo or Santiago, or San Miguel de Allende.

For years our nation has debated this change -- some have praised it and others have resented it. By nominating me, my party has made a choice to welcome the new America.

Our future cannot be separated from the future of Latin America.

As I speak, we are celebrating the success of democracy in Mexico.

George Bush from a campaign speech in Miami, August 2000.

You can read the speech here.

Here is an excerpt of a good critique of that speech:

In equating our intimate historic bonds to our mother country and to Canada with our ties to Mexico, W. shows a staggering ignorance of the civilizational facts of life. The reason we are so close to Britain and Canada is that we share with them a common historical culture, language, literature, and legal system, as well as similar standards of behavior, expectations of public officials, and so on.

Give the immigration bill a chance?

We did. More than once over the decades. Every time it's been an unmitigated disaster. One of the definitions of insanity is to do the same thing over and over while expecting a different outcome. It's the same thing they try with the gun laws. The insane result? Twenty thousand laws that do no good and are rarely enforced anyway. The current face of immigration is the face of socialism to begin with and eventually the face of communism. If they succeed in taking our guns, they'll forget socialism and go straight to the final solution.

George Bush the First has had a policy of never criticizing his presidential successors, which seems like a gentlemanly thing to do.

But George the First ALSO has done the gentlemanly thing of NOT praising and promoting his Democratic successors’ bills, because that would be a slap in the face to his fellow Republicans.

In contrast, George W. Bush is going out of his way to promote Obama’s immigration bill.

If GWB thinks it’s fine to get involved in politics, why did he start now for a Democratic immigration bill instead of coming out just six months ago to defend HIS OWN BUSH TAX CUTS against Obama and the Democrats who managed to repeal them and enact higher tax cuts on the rich against fierce opposition from anti-tax Republicans who could have used Bush’s help at the time?

RINOs are not Conservatives’ friends when they aid the Democrats, which lately seems to be the RINOs’ number one priority. Even the THREAT of starting a new Conservative party might be enough to keep some RINOs from competing in the ongoing who-can-stab-the-Conservatives-in-the-back-most-disloyally contest, since without Conservatives RINOs would have no party to dominate.

you want amnesty.

you haven ‘t read the bill otherwise you know 100 million 3rd world immigrants is not fantasy. keep shilling for Amnesty.

did you even know how many illegals there are here now? some estimates as high as 40 million. all those 40 million will be able to bring in family members from the 3rd world. estimates are 50 million new immigrants.

also they put in the bill massive increases in work visas and political asylum for any 3rd world immigrant who claims it and Michelle Bachman said this ALONE could add another 50 million 3rd world immigrants.

Not that I want to Disagree with President George W. Bush but the American People have given immigration a chance.The last time was during the Reagan Administration when Congress lied and said they would secure the Border and Control Immigration before that Amnesty occurred.

Well the Amnesty occurred and the Borders were never secured and Criminal Aliens are pouring across our borders by the hundreds of thousands every year.

There are so many the border patrol really has NO clue as to how many are here.And the Big excuse the government uses to not apprehend and deport these illegals is there are to many here already.

If that is the case then lock down the Borders with the military if you have to until this illegal Invasion is stopped and those that are here are returned to their country of origin.

We can’t afford as a nation any more parasites sucking off of our social safety net.

You don’t have to tell me, I live in California. At least until I can retire and move back to the U.S. I know it is anecdotal, and I would like to know if it is this way everywhere, but I was Christmas (am I still allowed to say that?) shopping in Brea, Orange County last year. There was a woman standing near the line speaking a language I have to guess was Arabic based on her appearance, the woman in front of me was jabbering in Chinese on her cell phone, and two women behind me were carrying on a ridiculously loud conversation in Spanish. How are we supposed to meld into a common people when everyone wants to retain their third world identities?

go keep shilling for Amnesty

your 40 million amnestied illegals will be able to bring in their extended family from the 3rd world . millions more new illegals will rush in to take those under the table jobs

do you even know 2nd grade math?

this bill even loosens political asylum requirements.Michell bachman said that alone will bring in 50 million. many more work visas from all occupations. this bill is an extreme attempt to throw open the border

One of the chief arguments for this amnesty bill is to stop enforcing immigration laws in ways that break up families. Should Obama, Bush et. al. be successful in giving amnesty to an ILLEGAL alien that ILLEGAL alien would then get to bring his family here. In light if that, 100 million could be a conservative number.

...Bush wants Republicans to consider immigration on its own merits, not just as a party saving piece of legislation...

??

For the life of me, I cannot even make sense of this.
"party saving"?
Is this a typo? Did he mean, forget "comprehensive immigration reform" will destroy the GOP and pass it anyway?

Either Bush or the author of this piece has been inhaling way too much PCP. Just weird...

For C#$%% sake we cannot even win the war on terms of the debate.

Human debris violating our borders is NOT immigration. It is criminal trespass.

I am so sick and tired of elected criminals and sanctimonious journalist and hollywierd elite telling me this is immigration.

No it is a criminal invasion by people so filthy they refuse to even learn English.

Immigration DID work and worked very well under an Ellis Island type system.

Our current system, thanks to that POS Ted Kennedy, if only we could dig him up, piss on him, then bury him again, is a deliberate attempt to infuse the USA with so many sub-cultures as to bring us down to a turd world nation. You know, leveling the playing field by destroying the producers so there is less of a gap with the poor.
