State GOP chief defends Bush policy
State Republican Party Chairman Bob Martinez on Wednesday called on Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo and other lawmakers to "back off" of their criticism of President Bush's immigration policy.
"Ninety-nine percent of the Mexicans that cross that border are not coming across the border with the intent to kill anyone," Martinez said. "I'm defending the president's position. That's all I'm doing."
So if 99% of drug addicts don't have the "intent to kill anyone" should we just leave them alone? The presiden't position on this issue is indefensible and anyone who tries to looks like a moron.
McClellan: 'Respect' Supreme Court decision
At today's White House news briefing, WND asked presidential press secretary Scott McClellan about the landmark Supreme Court decision yesterday allowing local government to seize a home or business against the owner's will for the purpose of private development.
McCLELLAN: Les, I think the president has made his views clear when it comes to private property rights. In terms of Supreme Court decisions, we obviously have to respect the decisions of the Supreme Court.
WND: Does the president feel as strongly about that lady in New London, Conn., who will be forced out of her home where she was born and has lived for 87 years [as a result of the high-court decision], does he feel as strong as Justice O'Connor feels, and does he believe this decision will help with his nomination of new justices?
McCLELLAN: Les, we just haven't talked about it, but the president is always concerned about the American people and their well being.
WND: He really is concerned about this lady, isn't he?
I don't respect the decision. The president could come out and say that comrade Stevens and company have radically changed America and that he will push for a constitutional amendment that will rectify this situation. No leadership here.
