Bush Slaps His Conservative Base in Face Over His Precious Illegals

Bush hits foes of alien bill ....for complete article

President Bush yesterday rebuked members of his own political party for trying to "frighten people" into opposing his immigration bill, prompting a quick backlash from some Republicans.

"Those determined to find fault with this bill will always be able to look at a narrow slice of it and find something they don't like," Mr. Bush said, speaking at a training center for immigration enforcement officials in Glynco, Ga.
"That's hurtful language," said Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican. "If the bill did what they promised it was going to do, I'd support it. I'm for comprehensive reform, but it has to serve the national interests, not political interest."
"Amnesty for 12-20 million illegal immigrants isn't a 'narrow slice' ... it's the whole darn pie," Mr. Bilbray said. "What part of illegal does the president not understand? The American people ... don't want another amnesty."
Paul Weyrich, founder of the conservative Free Congress Foundation, said that "there are legitimate reasons to oppose this legislation, and I don't think that it behooves the president to call people names or make accusations against them if they disagree with him."
"He is angering people beyond belief to the point that the Republican Party is going to split in two, thanks to him. If this bill passes, the Republicans will not recover from it," Mr. Weyrich said.

An aide to one Republican senator who is usually a close White House ally said that Mr. Bush had questioned the patriotism of lawmakers who are concerned about granting amnesty to illegal aliens.

"It not only stretches the bounds of credibility with conservative Republicans but in fact, it further erodes their confidence in this administration," said the aide, who asked that his name not be used.
Mr. Weyrich said the president was repeating the mistake he made in 2005 when he nominated Harriet E. Miers, Mr. Bush's White House counsel at the time, to the Supreme Court. Miss Miers removed herself from consideration after intense opposition from conservatives.
Mr. Bush denounced those who are "out there hollerin' and saying, 'Kick 'em out,' " saying such an approach "is simply unrealistic. It won't work."

Oh but there is MORE..................

Bush confronts immigration deal skeptics ....for complete article

President Bush attacked opponents of an immigration deal Tuesday, suggesting they "don't want to do what's right for America."

"Those determined to find fault with this bill will always be able to look at a narrow slice of it and find something they don't like," the president said. "If you want to kill the bill, if you don't want to do what's right for America, you can pick one little aspect out of it.

Bush chastised those who say the proposal offers amnesty to illegal immigrants. He called it empty political rhetoric.

Wild Thing's comment............

There they go again, trying to paint their opponents as uneducated "bigots", but this time, it's the president himself doing it to members of his own party.

I want to to see existing laws enforced, the borders secured and economic disincentives instituted to facilitate the self-removal of illegals from our country.

“He is angering people beyond belief to the point that the Republican Party is going to split in two, thanks to him. If this bill passes, the Republicans will not recover from it,” Mr. Weyrich said.”

Wake up Mr. Weyrich...Bush does NOT care about having divided the party. He made that LOUD and CLEAR
by pushing comprehensive immigration reform in a critical election year, risking and losing both the House
and the Senate and now his amnesty and open borders conspirators are in charge.

People that break the laws of this land from the first day they set foot across the border are more
than likely to disrespect our laws and break more of them later. Case and point, they interviewed an
illegal on the news the other day and he was laughing about being able to get any kind of ID he wanted
for the right price.

An aide to one Republican senator who is usually a close White House ally said that Mr. Bush had questioned the patriotism of lawmakers who are concerned about granting amnesty to illegal aliens.

Bush has used this accusation to death. He's no longer a leader. Whining about opposition to a bill
that enables the destruction of American society makes him look like a spoiled, petulant child at best.

"It takes a lot of courage in the face of some of the criticism in the political world to do what's right, not what's comfortable. And what's right is to fix this system now before it's too late," the president said.

Is he talking about himself? What's right, Mr. Bush, is to uphold the law and preserve the
sovereignty of the U.S. What's right, Mr. Bush, is to serve the people of the United States not the
other way around.

If you want to scare the American people, what you say is the bill’s an amnesty bill,” Mr. Bush said.

No, Mr. President.What scares the American people,is the thought of this bill passing! Does this
illegal lover think we are a nation of 4 year olds? Frightened??? We’re pissed off!!!!

Bush has turned on his own people, his political supporters, his citizens, his conservative base,
and the integrity of America in general. This is truly something that will live in history for a very
long time. Shame be upon this effort and all of those malfeasants in Washington that are doing
this to our country -— that USED TO BE a representative republic.

I don't give a flying fart about Bush anymore, that feeling has been growing for a long time
now, but I am concerned with that it is our country that is at stake.

It is WE THE PEOPLE who run this country, not the other way around and it's damned time
we stood up and did something about it.

Of all the things he needed to fight the liberals over, he chooses to attack his own base for
wanting to protect our nation’s sovereignty.

No amnesty or rewards for criminal invaders!!!!! Ever.

As FlipWilson used to say,They Sold Their Soul
to the Devil...Democrats want victums and votes
Republicans want cheap labor,that says it all..

Posted by: Tincan Sailor at May 30, 2007 01:43 PM

As I have said before I am now sorry I ever voted for him.

The only thing this immigration Amnesty Bill will accomplish is to destroy the republican party. I will not vote for a republican who supports this pice of 'crap'.

Bush just handed the white house back to the Clintons.

I am angry beyond words. Two of the greatest disasters to befall Conservatism in America have been named Bush. Sadly there is a push to put Bush Jr's presidential library in my home of Dallas, Texas on the beautiful campus of SMU. People in nice old condos have already been displaced so that more land can be set aside for this future repository of idiocy and bullshit. I really think the George W Bush Presidential Library should be in Mexico City.

God knows I love our troops, I was one of them and my son IS one of them, but Bush has weakened this nation beyond belief with his 'Debacle in Iraq', and his refusal to protect the sovreign shores of this nation...

And Sen. Thompson said it best: "The government could start by securing our nation's borders. A sovereign nation that can't do that is not a sovereign nation." ~Fred D. Thompson~

Posted by: TexasFred at May 30, 2007 02:44 PM

Mark, I agree with you 100%. Bush is following his daddy's lead in handing the White House back to the Clinton's.

Tincan, it's not just the Republicans who want the cheap labor, many Democrats are benefiting from it too. I like what Ann Coulter had to say about this.

"We fought a civil war to force Democrats to give up on slavery 150 years ago. They’ve become so desperate for servants that now they’re importing an underclass to wash their clothes and pick their vegetables. This vast class of unskilled immigrants is the left’s new form of slavery".

Posted by: BobF at May 30, 2007 03:54 PM

Well it's clear where this lame duck is headed, I didn't like the choices when I voted for his daddy, I didn't like the choices when I voted both times for baby George, no more RINO's. Bush is indefensible in his quest to make this a Canadian-Mexican-United States socio-economic bloc just like the European Union for the one worlder's in the United Nations. Look at who George chose to replace the head of the World Bank, another Socialist, Volker would have cleaned up the corrupt bank, George chose the Euroweenie replacement. We've already got the French equivalent surrender monkey's in office. Fred Thompson had best quit waffling or Hillary will be the nation's next Marxist dictator with a full blown Socialist agenda.

Mr. President, quit trying to piss on my boots and tell me it's rainin'!

Here's a historic perspective on the immigration issue:

More than 150 years-ago, President Polk (a Democrat!) planted the idea of “Manifest Destiny,” which took root among the American people. The consequences of this belief that the U.S. had a God-given right to occupy and "civilize" the whole continent lead to the Mexican-American War (1846-1848), known in Mexico as la invasión estadounidense (the United States Invasion).

Not to devalue the injustices done to Mexicans more than a century ago—but, don’t blame me, my ancestors were laboring in wheat fields somewhere in the Ukraine (before they legally entered this country)

Sadly, I believe that historians will be re-writing the last chapter of the Mexican Cession, the historical name of the present day southwestern United States ceded by Mexico in 1848.

What lands Mexico lost in war, they are winning back through their policy of a tacit invasion of the United States. With each passing day—as the number of illegal Mexicans in our country grows (compounded by births on U.S. soil), Mexico takes back a little bit more of their lost land(s) and culture.

Lynn, that is a good way to describe them....."criminal invaders"...because that is just what they are.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 31, 2007 12:48 AM

Tincan Sailor , they have sold their sould to the devil the evil democrats, thanks Tincan.

I agree too about the Republicans it is so much about cheap labor. It sure as heck isn't about votes the illegals will be voting if they do at all for the Democrats.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 31, 2007 12:51 AM

Mark I agree so much, that is just what Bush has done. It is so sad, and an outage at the same time.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 31, 2007 12:53 AM

Tom, oh nooooooooo really? I had not heard that. I love Dallas, I lived there for a few years and SMU is where I met Bob Hope when he asked me to come to Vietnam with him.

I used to live off the North Central Expressway near Turtle Creek,it was beautful there. Not sure how it is now, but I loved it so much.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 31, 2007 12:55 AM

TexasFred, that is exactly what Bush is doing, he is weakening our country and very much on purpose I think too. I don't think he cares at all what he is doing.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 31, 2007 12:56 AM

Bob I agree Ann Coulter is exactly right.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 31, 2007 12:57 AM

Jack I agree, no more Rhino's. I will never vote for a Rhino again.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 31, 2007 12:59 AM

Rick that is such a GREAT way to say it. I never heard that before but it is absolutely perfect!
Thank you!

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 31, 2007 01:00 AM

Bush is determined to show his presidency as the worst in not only American history but also world history. Hard to believe he wants to be worse than jimmy jackass carter but he is giving it all he has.

Posted by: Dan at May 31, 2007 01:03 AM

If 'Der Fatherland's' Frau Crusader can LEGALLY become an American citizen, so can the Mexicans!
How does one say ILLEGAL in espanol? How does one say LAWBREAKER in espanol? Jeb Bush's wife is from Mexico so she must be the Sanna Anna of 2007, eh? So much for swearing to defend our nation against all enemies foreign and domestic, so help me God! "REMEMBER THE ALAMO 1836!"

Posted by: darthcrUSAderworldtour07 at May 31, 2007 01:03 AM

Chrissie, very well said and spelled out. Bush has srewed up on this BIG TIME. I still support the war effort, but if he is screwing up so simple as border security, what the hell is he doing in the war? I'm disgusted, too disgusted to even blog this, but I don't need to now, cause you have done a stellar job my lady.

Cancer Sucks!

Posted by: GM at June 5, 2007 06:43 PM

This is the one big issue that I can not agree with the President on. I can concede the smaller stuff or compromise on them because that is governance but when nearly 90% of this country has doubts and does not want it he is barking up the wrong tree.

He needs to step back and stop worrying about a damned legacy and do the right thing. We should have seen this though. He has been in love with the illegals from the start.

Posted by: Big Dog at June 5, 2007 07:37 PM

I reached my limit with GWB a few years back when the White House sent me a letter basically calling me a religious bigot. What prompted that letter was my sending a letter as to the truth about Islam.

This latest statement of his, in which he told us that those opposing his immigration plan are unpatriotic was the final straw.

He may be the President, but I switch the channel when he comes on the air.
