Until yesterday this was displayed above my desk. I had it up there since the day after the election. But I took it down. I could no longer take it. Why? Bush's speech yesterday. I have heard his lies, his falsehoods and his disgusting rhetoric one too many times now.
"But in order to enforce this border, we've got to have a rational way that recognizes there are people sneaking across to do work Americans aren't doing. They're doing jobs Americans are not filling. And my attitude is this: When you find a willing worker and a willing employer, there ought to be a legal way to let somebody come here to work on a temporary basis."
By "temporary" he means "let them come here, establish themselves, get a few women pregnant and then ignore any go home orders that would probably never be issued anyways."
"It takes pressure off the border. When you got people sneaking across to do work, it puts pressure on a border. If somebody can come in on a legal way, it's going to make it easier for our Border Patrol agents to do their job."
This is the libertarian argument for drug legalization. "Prisons won't be so crowded if we would just make things legal." You know, enforcing our burglary laws "puts pressure" on our police and our jails. Maybe we should provide a way that people can "obtain things that aren't theirs on a temporary basis.""But one way to do is if you have a temporary worker program, say, here's a tamper-proof card that will enable our employers to be able to verify whether someone is here legally to do work on a temporary basis, and enable the government to hold people to account for hiring illegal workers."
Did anyone not hear Lars Larson tear up Sec of Commerce Gutierrez on this? Absolutely shut him down. This is a big lie. Who will have this "tamper proof card?" Everyone? Or just people with brown skin? Either everyone has to have it or no one has to have it. This card is a lie. There will be no verification.
"People in this country expect us to secure the border, and we will."
Notice how it's future tense, not "we are." He isn't interested in securing the border now, only after he gets his amnesty will he pretend to secure the border.I could go on and on but the bottom line is, If I am polled asking if I approve of our president, I will say NO. I believe that what he is doing is so damaging to our country, so damaging to our children's future that I'm here to say, no Mr. President, F**K you!
