A Beaten Down Bush
While I fear this post's title is a porn movie waiting to happen, is it wrong that I take some pleasure in watching our beleaguered President realize he can't force feed his own will on Congress? Hell, I think it's moronic that the GOP is blocking this and based out of not much more than pure xenophobia and fear of people who aren't white. (Yes, I said it.) But if it not only results in the GOP screwing themselves out of the Hispanic vote (and therefore a continuing electoral deficiency) but also makes GWB want to cry and pout...well, that's just a cherry on top of the sundae.
Edited to add: I feel it probably makes sense to add here that I don't think this bill is wonderful - indeed, I know very little about it. But - and this pains me in some way to say - I actually think that, given the two sides of this debate, President Bush is clearly on the correct side. That's...odd for me. In fact, I'm not sure but it just might be the ONLY time that's been the case in his tenure in office.
