Also, why do you suppose W hasn't come out strong, or AT ALL, on the excessive DC spending being approved by Dims AND Repubs?
I've heard all of the "Well, W is too gracious to comment about another admins policies". Our country is being destroyed at warp speed....a patriot would try and put a stop to it...or, at the very least, say something disapproving.
It's long boggled by mind how W can just sit by, quietly, while our country spins further into Marxist destruction.
Buish and Jeb are in full press on amnesty, just like 2007. It will destroy the country, if passed. W still hurting America, and helping Obama with pro-amnesty rhetoric.
Of course its not the topic of the thread so you need to ask so you can rant away on some unrelated point.
So let’s get that done.
I do support W’s path to citizenship policies. I don’t think that is mutually exclusive with enforcement and clear identification of who is entering the country.
To be clear, both as governor of Texas and as President— Bush took a consistent view of immigration that was far less accommodating than California but far less strict and unrealistic than the border war crowd that attacks him.
The reality of that practice from the 1990s until 2007 is as follows:
1. Texas is the most over riding economic engine remaining for the US economy. We produce most of the job gains in the US. We presently have 25% of all the fossil fuel wells in the world. We have a booming fiscal surplus that will continue to explode. Our state is not blue but emphatically red and despite fantasies to the contrary will remain so.
2. Hispanics did support President Bush rather dramatically throughout his role as governor and President.
3. In January 2007, unemployment in the United States was 4.7 percent. That is hardly an economic disaster. The deficit was 160 billion dollars— barely a tenth of what it runs now. Bush protected the nation from further attacks despite the wild rhetoric that the borders will bring in another attack. It did not happen in 8 years of Bush’s leadership.
The hatred Bush receives from Obama supporters and faux conservatives does not faze me.
I would like to see some results. Bush actually has some. They compare favorably with California and they compare favorably with this nation since Obama was sworn in January 2009.
Roosevelt was right. It is easier to be the critic than the man in the ring fighting for something.
