The President’s Harriett Miers Immigration Moment

According to President Bush Harriett Miers was a good nominee for the Supreme Court because she was a “pioneer woman.” Miers was a bad choice President Bush and it took your base to bring you in line with what was good for America. It was your base that insured that Sam Alito a solid qualified judge was nominated and eventually approved by Congress.

President Bush please understand that your compassionate Conservativism in 2000 and 2004 was the least of two evils in both cases. In both cases Democrats ran candidates that were totally unacceptable and if you were to run against them again America should vote for you again.

However I must say that your immigration policy is another Harriet Miers moment and your attacks against Republicans are unwarranted.

So many were the times that you should have stood up against your distracters and give them back as good as you were getting. You know, tell them how ridiculous it was to accuse you of stealing the 2000 and 2004 elections. I wanted someone in the Whitehouse to break down for the American people the decision to go to war and answer that question from a historical perspective starting from the Presidencies of George H. W. Bush and William Jefferson Clinton to George W Bush. So many times I wished that you would tell the Democrats how they are dividing the nation with the hate Bush memes. But you didn’t.

So many issues and nothing but a deafening silence from the Bush White house so why did you sudden find your voice on the immigration issue and why against Conservatives?

Conservatives that have carried you in spite of your inability or your unwillingness to defend yourself against the vicious attacks from the left, the left has attacked everything from your intelligence, your integrity, your competence, and your credibility, and though it all Conservatives supported you because it was the best thing for America.

However, Conservatives are now feeling that your comprehensive immigration reform is not good for America. Conservatives feel that your plan is good for corporate America but that is not the same as Middle America the every day working person who is America.

President Bush corporate America as divested itself from America and the American people for the pursuit of the bottom line; record profits, usurious CEO salaries and compensation packages, outsourcing American jobs, corporate downsizing, encouraging illegal alien entry, encouraging a borderless America, internationalizing and becoming transnational, evading taxes, and consolidating economical strength and power through monopolies. All of these things are a tyrannous threat to the people of America.

John Sherman put it, "If we will not endure a king as a political power we should not endure a king over the production, transportation, and sale of any of the necessaries of life." President Bush the Sherman Antitrust Act passed Congress almost unanimously in 1890 and you need to explain to Americans why your comprehensive immigration reform act (CIRA) is not a corporate boondoggle.

The record profits have not escaped our attention President Bush the want for cheap labor has not escaped our attention either. And finally the shrinking middle class has not escaped our attention.

Yet the most important thing is that the founders when to great lengths to protect America from tyrannous rulers and consolidated power but recently we Americans have witnessed a great power rising out of America yet that power is not claiming America as its own.

What we have witnessed is not laisser faire, what we are witnessing is not free market economics what we are seeing is an amoral, heartless, soulless beast that feeds off of the suffering of people. Its one and only motivation is to suck all economic life from the people. It is a tyrannous ruler and enslaver of the people that has wanton disregard for its destruction of the lives, which it devours. This is the Corporate beast that we see President Bush and we believe that your comprehensive immigration reform benefits this beast not the American people and certainly not Mexican people.

It is not Marxist in any way to suggest that the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890 had it right in opposing or regulating these huge corporate business monopolies, such as trusts or cartels, especially in the interest of promoting competition.

President Bush you need to explain why you think that granting 20 million Mexican citizens amnesty is good for America. President Bush you need to show the American people that you can enforce the laws that are already on the books, and President Bush you need to pardon Jose Alonso Compean and Ignacio Ramos two border patrol agents who are imprisoned now for attempting to enforce the U.S. border.

President Bush you are correct about one thing we are skeptical because we don’t think the government can fix our problems. We don’t even think that the government wishes to fix our problems.

If it did it would immediate stop attempting to push through insulting legislation, which was originally patched together to entice Americans to give corporations cheap labor under the guise, that it will strength borders and give Mexican citizens a “path to citizenship.”

What this bill will really do is exacerbate problems of the low waged unskilled workers in America, give the appearance of border enforcement and give corporations exactly what they want.

President Bush we can only save you from just so many Harriet Miers moments you continue down this road on immigration you walk without the Conservative party because unlike your allies on the other side we put America first, before politics, before winning and before any politician.

We’ve carried you this far if you chose to walk away we’ll simply find someone who will do the job that a compassionate conservative won’t do and then you and Jimma Carter can compare accomplishments. That’ll be interesting now won’t it!


  1. Here, Here, Al!

    I was working on a similar article, which I had intended to email to the White House, in addition to posting it here.

    You covered it extremely well, and saved me the effort.

  2. Send your EM Brook the White house should hear from us.

    Also we'll need to contact Congress this legislation should die on the vine.
