    Right now it looks like the Dems are going to have to work overtime in order to salvage failure from the jaws of victory:

    The grassroots of the GOP are not going to stand for Bush's BS immigration policy, which borders on outright amnesty. It's going to be a major issue in 2008.

    Bush is off his rocker. On immigration, port deals, and other things. I'm wishing I hadn't have voted for him, for real.

    And I won't be voting for Jeb Bush for President if that ever materializes. I've had enough of the Bush dynasty. Get 'em the hell otta there.

    I'm thinking Newt for best Republican candidate that can WIN.

    Newt would rule. So would Condi. So would George Allen.

    I guess a pragmatic approach to immigration doesn't work with you guys, eh?

    Well what exactly is Mr. Irrelevent's policy anyway? I for one happen to agree with the prez's approach.

    i'm not sure but L.A. might implode unless the Hispanics can corral what's left of the weekend "protestors" who are presently doing whatever they can to block traffic in L.A.

    Agreed.

    I voted for "41", my first voting-age election, damn proud to vote for a Republican on my maiden voyage. I then voted for Dole. I then voted for George W., in 2000. By the time '04 rolled around, I was damn peed at him an didn't bother voting for president (though I was living in Brooklyn, so it wouldn't have made much of a difference). I could have voted for Ted Kennedy and got more of a conservative.

    Like Hank Hill says of Ronald Reagan, "I miss voting for that man."

    No shit aye.

    I don't know WHY the INS hasn't taken advantage of having so many illegals in one place at one time and rounded them up. When will they ever have such an opportunity again?
