Bush Turns On His Core Supporters

This is the speech he gave earlier this week that I spoke about on Today's show.

President Bush Discusses Comprehensive Immigration Reform in Glynco, Georgia
"This reform is complex. There's a lot of emotions around this issue. Convictions run deep. 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. 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, you can use it to frighten people. Or you can show leadership and solve this problem once and for all, so the people who wear the uniform in this crowd can do the job we expect them to do. Now is the time for comprehensive immigration reform. Now is the time for members of both political parties to stand up and show courage, and take a leadership role and do what's right for America."

-President George W. Bush

If you get a chance listen to the audio on the White House site HERE.

Peggy Noonan has an excellent column in Today's WSJ in which she discusses Bush turning on his supporters.

Too Bad President Bush has torn the conservative coalition asunder
The president has taken to suggesting that opponents of his immigration bill are unpatriotic--they "don't want to do what's right for America." His ally Sen. Lindsey Graham has said, "We're gonna tell the bigots to shut up." On Fox last weekend he vowed to "push back." Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff suggested opponents would prefer illegal immigrants be killed; Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez said those who oppose the bill want "mass deportation." Former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson said those who oppose the bill are "anti-immigrant" and suggested they suffer from "rage" and "national chauvinism."

We hear you Loud and Clear, Mr. President.

Shocka! RNC donations off by 40%(Gee I wonder why?)

Literally, I wake up every day wondering why the White House hates its own troops so much.

Bush ain't no Texan. He's a camillion born in Connecticut; just like that babe Hillary who claims to be a New Yorker and a former Razorback from AR, who was born in Illinois, the same State that corrupt Osama Obama is from. How about we nominate honest non- politician's, ie: Pat C., Bud H., Ociffer Jim.., to run in 2008.

Better wake up America. Most of the candidates running are bought and paid for, by the corporate interests, chamber of commerce, unions and other special interest's looking to fill their pockets, and don't care a crap about preserving the American culture, or representing the American people. No wonder voter turnout is so low.

GB sold you a pig in a polk, will you let the politician's do it again?

Yep, I'm sure they will..

Gee, I gave money and had a sign in my yard the first time for Bush.

But, at this point I am so sick of two faced Republicans (like Bush) that unless they have got a long history of fighting for the things I am interested in, they can kiss my money and my vote goodbye.

I want to hear about spending cuts and sending illegals back home.

I have not heard much talk about those things from the leading Republicans or any DUMB Dem.

I voted for Bush, both of them. Never again. I changed my party to Democrat. The Republican Party is no longer the party of Ronald Reagan.

If I hear Ronald Reagan one more time, I'm going to barf. Reagan was a Democrat before switching to Republican, and with his amnesty in 1986, I would say George Bush is as much a Democrat as Ronald Reagan was. It just might be that Reagan started the downfall and the moderate compassionate liberalization of Republican party and was actually elected by Democrats and moderate to liberal Republicans.

I was living in Germany from 1982 through 1985, and thought Reagan was the worst president ever. He should have never stuck his nose in tearing down the Berlin wall. It was the worst thing that could have been done, and devestated Western Germany with high crime, bumb's sleeping in the streets and train stastions, grafetti everywhere you never saw. Just like good ol' NYC America..
Ask a German what they think of Ronald Reagan. As a Republican I refused to vote for the man, nor even a Democrat running during that period.

The only reason I voted for Bush twice, was because he was the lessor of the other evils running. Imagine if we had John F. Kerry, or algore. You think things are bad now!

I voted for Bush. Now I know the world is worse off with this man in the White House. I was a product of the fear mongering tactics of Carl Rove.
