Bush Administration Very Close To 'Jumping Tracks'Topics: Political News and commentaries
I can't name a single comment this year by any blogger, that I agree with more than this one by Charles at LGF:
"The Bush administration is perilously close to jumping the tracks. I've supported the President through the long course of the war that began on September 11, but it's starting to look like he's simply getting tired; he won't defend his administration against attacks, he won't defend the country against illegal immigration, he won't do anything to stop the media leaks that cripple our national security ... and now this: U.S., Iran end 27-year diplomatic freeze."All this on top of Bush's politically correct rules of engagement that endanger our troops in Iraq ....
No wonder the Republicans are having trouble; there's getting less and less for conservatives to rally around.

And now Bush comes out swinging at amnesty opponents like Michael "Capital Punishment" Chertoff has been doing the last few days. Bush said: "[opponents of the immigration bill] don't want to do what's right for America."
Got that? Opponents of the bill are betraying the country on this issue, not Bush.
He also said;
"And my answer to the skeptics is: give us a chance to fix the problems in a comprehensive way that enforces our border and treats people with decency and respect. Give us a chance to fix this problem. Don't try to kill this bill before it gets moving."
It's as if the 1986 amnesty never happened. Fool us once, shame on you, fool us twice, shame on us. Or, as Bush might say: "Can't get fooled again."
"Bush chastised those who say the proposal offers amnesty to illegal immigrants. He called it empty political rhetoric."
