Carol Platt Liebau: Say WHAT?

Say WHAT?

I, apparently, "don't want to do what's right for America" -- and neither do millions of other Republicans, at least according to President Bush.

That's because I'm not ready to sign on -- lock, stock and barrel -- to an immigration plan that is deeply flawed, most significantly because it lacks the controls to ensure that this country is not infiltrated by jihadists.

It's hard to figure out what advantage President Bush sees in attacking those of good conscience who disagree with him. Many of them happen to be some of his staunchest allies in the war on terror, and it isn't clear how it serves him to insult them gratuitously.

And it's puzzling that the President would save his harshest rhetoric -- not for those who would defund American soldiers, or force a surrender in Iraq -- but for those who don't believe it's wise to hand out probationary visas to people from "countries of interest" (i.e. heavily populated by jihadists), thereby allowing them to embed in the United States, without the benefit of even a cursory background check.

"It's hard to figure out what advantage President Bush sees in attacking those of good conscience who disagree with him."

Never stopped him from attacking anyone else who disagreed with him. I hope you apply this same logic when it happens to someone else.

Excellent post, Carol. I have been extremely dismayed not only by the President's comment today but by Michael Chertoff saying in two different interviews that opponents of the immigration bill must want illegal aliens executed.

I wrote on this topic this morning and just updated it with your thoughts, if you are interested:

If you're not a loyal Bushie, you're a traitor and likely support the terrorists.
