Skip to comments.Why Isnít Bush On The Border? (Idiot Pat Buchanan Suggests Bush Impeachment! BARF ALERT!)

Published on Monday, August 29, 2005, in the Tracy Press. WASHINGTON â On Aug. 12, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson declared a state of emergency "due to a chaotic situation involving illegal alien smuggling and illegal drug shipments" on his southern border. Three days later, Gov. Janet Napolitano followed suit in Arizona.
Reason: the crisis on the border. The ally-ally-in-free immigration policy of George Bush and Vicente Fox, beloved of corporate America, has created a hell on our southern border.
Those Southwestern states are being inundated by illegal aliens trashing ranches, killing cattle, committing crimes and eating up tax dollars. The traffic in narcotics and human beings from Mexico is a national scandal and a human rights disgrace.
What is true of New Mexico and Arizona is true of our nation, which is home to an estimated 10 million to 15 million aliens who have broken our laws and broken into our country. It is a mark of the cowardice of our leaders that they are so terrified of being called "bigots" that they tolerate this criminality. The moral rot of political correctness runs deep today in both national parties.
A president like Teddy Roosevelt would have led the Army to the border years ago. And if Fox did not cooperate, T.R. would have gone on to Mexico City. Nor would Ike, who deported all illegal aliens in 1953, have stood still for this being done to the country he had defended in war.
What are these Bush Republicans afraid of? Dirty looks from the help at the country club?
The question of whether America is going to remain one nation, or whether our Southwest will wind up as a giant Kosovo separated by language and loyalty from the rest of America is on the table.
Where is Bush? All wrapped up in the issue of whether women in Najaf will have the same rights in divorce and custody cases as women in Nebraska. His legislative agenda for the fall includes a blanket amnesty for illegals, so they can be exploited by businesses who want to hold wages down as they dump the social costs for their employees health care, schools, courts, cops, prisons onto taxpayers.
Not only have Richardson and Napolitano awakened â they are on the front lines â so, too, has Hillary Clinton, who has spoken out against illegal immigration with a forthrightness that makes Bush sound like a talking head for La Raza.
Why is a Republican Congress permitting this president to persist in the dereliction of his sworn duty?
Bush is chief executive of the United States. It is his duty to enforce the laws. Can anyone fairly say he is enforcing the immigration laws? Those laws are clear. People who break in are to be sent back. Yet, more than 10 million have broken in with impunity.
Another million try to break in every year. Half a million succeed. Border security is homeland security. How, then, can the Department of Homeland Security say America is secure?
Who can guarantee that, of the untold millions of illegals here, and the scores of thousands ordered deported for crimes who have disappeared into our midst, none is a terrorist waiting for orders to blow up a subway or mall and massacre American citizens?
Most of these illegals come to work to send money back to their families. They are not bad people. But because they are predominantly young and male, they commit a disproportionate share of violent crimes.
Why should U.S. citizens be assaulted, robbed, raped and murdered, and have their children molested, because their government will not enforce its own laws?
Is this not an indictment of democracy itself? What dictatorial regime would put up with this?
The Republican Party claims to be a conservative party. But what kind of conservative is it who, to cut a few costs or make a few bucks, will turn his family's home into a neighborhood flop house?
In a recent poll, 40 percent of Mexicans " 40 million people said they would like to come to the United States, and 20 percent expressed a willingness to break in. Time to cut the babble about how NAFTA is going to solve the problem. This is a national emergency.
Twice, Bush has taken an oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." Article IV, Section 4 of that Constitution reads," The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion."
Well, we are being invaded, and the president of the United States is not doing his duty to protect the states against that invasion.
Some courageous Republican, to get the attention of this White House, should drop into the hopper a bill of impeachment, charging Bush with a conscious refusal to uphold his oath and defend the states of the Union against "invasion."
It may be the only way left to get his attention, before the border vanishes and our beloved country dissolves into MexAmerica, what T.R. called a "polyglot boarding house for the world."
Yes it has.
And PJB was consistently opposed to illegal immigration when Klintoon was in office.
I don't blame him at all for venting his wrath at the pathetic pissant pseudo-conservative who currently occupies the White House.
I see you have picked up the DU talking points!
Frankly, your disingenuous and pernicious "spin control" is more in tune with the low standards practiced at that cesspit. I've come to believe that it's entirely possible that Carville and Rove are evil twins, separated at birth.
I'm not worried. Buchanan threads are like dynamite fuses, sparkling and burnt fingers are expected.
Actually, impeaching Bush may be the only way to keep Hillary out of the White House in 08.
After all, who are the strongest GOP candidates in the primary?
1. Frist - weak on judges
2. Giuliani - pro-choice, pro-gay
3. Jeb - haven't we had enough Bushes yet?
4. Whoever takes over for Bush when he is impeached and Cheney resigns
100% correct, doc. Terrorists and open borders don't mix, the illegal alien invasion goes against what Americans want, and all of this creates a BIG lack of confidence in our "leadership".
NO MORE VOTES FOR OPEN BORDERS POLITICIANS!
Yep, let's talk about Lawrence for example, that whole freakin' place is little Brazil, let's talk about Brockton, another Hispanic city, how about Framingham, etc. etc. etc. I don't even recognize my State anymore, and how many languages is the driving exam written in???????
When will the peasents-with-pitchforks show up at BOTH the doors of Congress AND the White House demanding something be done?
Pat has learned very quickly that the way to make money in the media business is to get attention. He pisses off someone on either side every time he opens his big fat pie hole. He's a wanna be Bill Oriliey.
2008 is going to be a total mess for the Republicans. We will be split in half like the Dems were in 2004. Sad, but it will happen. Strange feeling I have.
It's sad. So much compromising in this day and age.
Close the borders.
I agree. And if gas is still 3.00 plus a gallon -- the Republicans will suffer for it. Right or wrong.
It is unfair to include Ronald Reagan in that bunch.
True, his 1986 legislation did include a ONE TIME offer of amnesty.
But it also beefed up border security and contained penalties for businesses that hired illegals.
It was Papa Bush who reneged on this deal and backstabbed us by loosening the controls and opening the floodgates in 1990.
Klinton and Bush II are both guilty of being intentionally derelict in their responsibilities in this matter.
"President Bush's missteps on immigration don't rise to the level of impeachment. Anyone who suggests otherwise is foolish."
Yea, but then there's this silly scrap of parchment hanging around called the Constitution. GWB swore an oath to protect it and has failed to deliver.
Well, you're welcome to that opinion, but the amnesty was a carrot to the burros, and so he shares some of the blame (IMO).
Ok Pat, we payed some attention to you. You can go back to doing whatever it was your were doing now.
In 1965, apparently far beyond the memory of most people now living in the US, a homicidal, drunken pantload from Massachusetts had a bunch of left-wing wonks work up "The Immigration Reform Act." Instead of dealing with hundreds of thousands of legal immigrants from around the globe in a sane and orderly fashion, we opened the floodgates that held back the Third World. 10 million illegal aliens? HA! That's LA County alone.
Wow to think that this idiot once was thought of as presedential material. He's become a big dissapointment.
Buchannon may be a buffoon but Bush could have eliminated the illegals problem long ago with vigorous enforcement against illegal employers.
He has chosen not to.
A bill to impeach him might get his attention.
There is NO defense of Bush' actions with regard to illegal immigration. None.
LOL - it is a silly scrap to many, including quite a few on FR, and they wish it would go away. The lack of border enforcement, CAFTA, and the KELO decision were just more tests to see how far they could push the sheeple.
The problem is - there were seven more amnesties afterwards and although there were penalties, they remained/remain largely unenforced. So while I see your point about Pres. Reagan, that did keep the ball rolling for extended open borders.
regarding our borders....GWB is a disappointment.
Who's in charge....Jorge or Pat?
So, you see....who is REALLY the "disappointment" here.....LOL
He has a constitutional duty and his allegiance to the United States did not terminate with his inauguration.
In no way does this absolve congress from its constitutional obligation to uphold and protect the United States either and are also complicit and should also be held accountable.
History is quite important and it does repeat. But, using the actions of previous executives to justify current actions is akin to justifying robbing banks because a neighbor does.
W. puts his pants on the same way as all of us and to blindly suggest that he is infallible is ignorance.
maybe not a barf alert, how 'bout a small acidic burp alert.
Yeah. None of the dimwits who followed him could understand the meaning of "ONE TIME".
Sad but true...
The problem may be his advisers Rove etc. He squeaked through 2 elections where he should have won by landslides.
But we are fortunate that Gore or Kerry didn't win, those two would have completed the destruction of America well on the way by the Democrats.
In 08 we have to elect a Bush +++.
More anti Iraq war talk from Buchanan. His hatred of President Bush must be eating his insides up for him to belittle the sacrifices our troops are making in Iraq to defend us from an enemy who has attacked us on our soil and vowed to destroy us.
The vileness of this little man will never end.
I agree; Buchanan is right on this one. Bush was elected to serve, not rule, and he is clearly at odds with both his electorate and the population. He should either enforce immigration law or resign.
Just when I thought I couldn't think any less of pat the-sore-loser, he gives yet another reason to despise him.
No we're not. In 2004, the Buchananites were predicting that the GOP would suffer and Tancredo would get a huge number of write in votes. In the end everyone but the 1-percenters backed the President.
Here You go Pat.Call these people instead of Bush.

I have news for you. They want all of us to be in the original 13 colonies. They want the whole enchillada.
"Since when does one's refusal to enforce the law of the land become a "misstep"?"
Poor choice of words. Sorry.
You can't tell a cop "others were speeding too" and expect to escape punishment.
"He has a point. Blaming Clinton, and Bush 1, and Reagan for not tightening up the borders is correct, but W is the President at this time, has been for 5 years, 4 years since 9/11, and he has refused to take action."
Exactly. It's amazing that, 5 years into his presidency, Bushbots still refuse to hold him accountable for ANYthing, preferring to blame Clintax for all our problems, while Bush continues to ignore our borders.
Seems to me we had this problem every since I can remember. Yet even Pat suggests this is the fault of this President? Are all of you almost as sick of him being blamed for everything as I am?
bump for later. (actually to see if this thread gets pulled).
