Bush Continues to Assault Americans with Guest Worker Push

President Bush moved off the sidelines Thursday, rejoining an immigration debate he helped kick off two years ago but which has since bedeviled his fellow Republicans.

Bush convened more than a dozen immigration reform advocates to spotlight his support for a comprehensive immigration package that includes a combination of fences and doors.

"Our government must enforce our borders; we've got plans in place to do so," Bush said. "But part of enforcing our borders is to have a guest worker program that encourages people to register their presence and says to them, 'If you're doing a job an American won't do, you're welcome here for a period of time to do that job.' "

It's all here.

So, the president says that the government has "plans in place" to enforce our borders? What the hell are they waiting for? Al Qaeda to nuke Washington D.C.? It's been 4 1/2 years since 9-11, and people are still streaming over the border. Another couple million ILLEGAL aliens to make it into the country? We've already got 12-20 million-ish. But who's counting?

And as far as offering a welcome to someone coming to do "a job an American won't do" is concerned, Mr. President, you can SPEAK FOR YOURSELF. Because you surely aren't speaking for me or countless other American who put and kept your ass in that big white house on Pennsylvania Avenue.

On Monday, the Senate will start debating various immigration proposals. The White House event underscored the president's focus, something that hasn't always been apparent on Capitol Hill.

"President Bush," Rep. Dennis Cardoza, D-Atwater, charged Wednesday, "is virtually AWOL on this subject."

The White House's immigration Web site, for instance, lists no relevant events or speeches between March 2004 and October 2005. Only a third of Americans approved of how Bush was handling the immigration issue, according to a December Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Anyone care to hazard a guess as to why the president avoids talking about the subjects of ILLEGAL immigration and immigration reform? You'll be shocked to know that I have an opinion:

President Bush avoids talking about his plans because he knows that they go against the will of the majority of Americans.

Jake and I often pose the question of whether those we've elected to represent us view and treat America as a country, or an economy. Look closely at one last snip from the article for an answer to that question from The White House (emphasis mine):

Bush and Cheney, along with the White House's top political guru, Karl Rove, joined the Thursday meeting after Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez promised the participants that he would make immigration reform his top priority "24/7."
Asked and answered.
