"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Bush offers sensible(?) path to end immigration squabbling?

We must face the reality that millions of illegal immigrants are already here. Some in this country argue that the solution is to deport every illegal immigrant ... I disagree - President George W. Bush
As with most politicians or anyone for that matter; mention the impossible task, indicate it is impossible then move on. The president's plan includes: Find the estimated illegal aliens and fine them, make the estimated illegal aliens and make them pay their taxes and finally make the estimated illegal aliens learn English.

The editorial in the Chicago Sun Times discusses the immigration issue as a problem for Republicans, but makes no mention of Democrats. This is perhaps due to the fact the administration and majority have the majority to defend, however, if the president and the majority do not offer something worthwhile, we can expect much less or I should say, much more of the same from the Left.

I'll take the National Guard troops on the border, BUT I guess since the government won't do it the Minutemen should continue with their building. It is a good start, though only a speech thus far.

From the Chicago Sun Times:
Some within the Republican Party, like Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado, want to impose criminal penalties on illegals, and see any effort to create a guest-worker program as undeserved amnesty. They want the border sewn up tightly to block the flow not only of Mexicans but also those from Central American countries. Others, such as Arizona Sen. John McCain, see the issue in humane terms, recognizing there must be a kinder way to deal with the 11 million illegals living here. Bush is more of this mind than the anti-immigration radicals.
From the above I don't have to be the brightest bulb on the porch to understand the Sun Times would consider the Coalition "anti-immigration," but with as most media outlets in this debate they are much more "humane" then the likes of us. Open the floodgates and with a magical florish all problems will resolve themselves, especially when Bush is out, the majority changes and a Democrat is in the White House.

It always amazes me how my "betters" know better than me. What would we do without the simplicity of an editorial like that linked.
