President Bush twists arms on Capitol Hill for amnesty bill


President Bush made a rare, almost unprecedented visit to Capitol Hill today to to push the amnesty bill by browbeating , bribing or otherwise influencing GOP senators.

It's noteworthy that the president couldn't be bothered to personally visit Capitol Hill to lobby for the funding our troops needed, or for any one of a dozen pieces of legislation needed to fight the War on Jihad at home and abroad...but he was more than willing to do so to promote what amounts to open borders and a permanent low wage underclass that can be deported at the whim of their employers while cutting the price of American labor to the bone.

He ought to be ashamed of himself.

"I think one of the things that we have to do is answer the skeptics, answer the doubters," White House press secretary Tony Snow said Tuesday. "We not only have a good sound bill, but it's also one that a lot of conservatives, when they get a chance to look at it, will say OK," he said on NBC's "Today" show.

Ummm, wrong Tony. People of all political persuasions have have a good look at this bill, and they don't like how it smells in the least. And as for being skeptical, why shouldn't we be, based on how the administration has failed to secure the borders after 6 1/2 years in a post 9/11 world?

The only hope the White House has of shoving this down the country's throat is to be able to lean on enough senators by whatever means necessary or to bribe them by sticking enough earmarks and special legislation in the bill to get it through.

It's not a bad strategy,and they may very well get away with it unless Congress is subjected to relentless pressure from the other side..our side.

Benjamin Franklin, back when this country was being founded came out of Constitution Hall in Philadelphia and was asked by his fellow citizens what kind of government the Founding Fathers had come up with. "A Republic, if you can keep it," he replied.

If you want to keep our Republic, step up to the plate and write, call , fax and e-mail to let your congressmen know how you feel about this issue.
