Don't just blame the President; there's plenty of blame to spread around
Tapscott's Copy Desk has a good article this morning, reminding the Conservatives, that they should ration a huge hunk of the blame regarding Congressional impotence on Congress. Although in the majority, the Republicans have almost completely failed to do anything except act like Democrats. Had they gotten behind their President, and steam-rollered the whining Democrats, many changes for the good would have occurred in the past 5 years.
My comment at TCD was as follows: <i>Although I am a Minuteman, there is no one else I would rather have in the White House now than President Bush. I cannot explain his border policy. That completely stumps me. But, when the chips are down and it all hits the fan, that man reverts to the Cowboy I voted for, and acts accordingly.
The Congress, on the other hand, except for a handful of people (my Texas Senators are 2 of the exceptions) are totally worthless. This abomination of an immigration bill that they are working on, should be completely tossed out. As should the Senators who hatched it. They are selling out their constituents and their country.
Securing our borders and enforcing our laws has nothing whatsoever to do with "immigration." It has everything to do with things like national sovereignty, national security, and repelling an invasion.</i>
