One week after the President was met with dead silence at the Republican Party's biggest annual fund-raising dinner when he mentioned his position on immigration, the question is being asked increasingly in GOP circles: Is George W. Bush out of touch with his party's grass-roots mainstream on immigration when he calls for a guest worker program and the GOP wants border security?That's kinda interesting, no?
"There was no applause whatsoever, and an awkward silence, in the five minutes [Bush] talked about immigration," Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R.-Calif.) told me on the day after the "President's Dinner" at the Washington DC convention center June 19th. "This showed how out of touch he was with the Republican Party on this issue." Another guest at the dinner (which raised an estimated $25 million for the GOP’s election-year coffers), Colin Hanna agreed. "The polite silence from the strong supporters of the President demonstrated he’s out of touch with the grass-roots on this issue," said Hanna, head of the Pennsylvania-based "Let Freedom Ring, Inc."
