Bush Drops The Ball

Michelle Malkin is p*ssed- and I can't blame her. While the UK permits hijackers and "enemy combatants" (traitors I think they used to be called) to come to the UK or gain citizenship, the Bush administration is making possibly the biggest mistake of his presidency- failing to secure the borders.

Some Bush supporters are admonishing immigration enforcement activists to "tone it down" because the criticism will hurt Bush.

Maybe he should of thought of that all the years when he could have been raiding worksites and strengthening border protection for their own sake. Instead, he has chosen to offer a too little, too late, and all-too-expedient gesture of immigration enforcement as a phony bargaining chip to bribe his base into supporting a historically doomed, dangerous, and utterly unmanageable amnesty proposal.

Tone it down? No, crank it up.

I continue to be astonished that the Republican leadership is so deaf to the desires of the majority of Americans- let alone Republican voters- on this issue. Don't they like to win elections any more?

A President without a base gets an approval rating in the %20's. The rest of the Repulicans need to move towards a more secure border if they want to stay in office.
