The Bush Bust: We (Ahem!) Told You So!
The Bush Administration is currently imploding on multiple fronts.
- After years of encouraging illegal immigration, President Bush has suddenly responded to the ever-increasing frustration of American citizens by announcing that he intends to deport all illegal aliens.
- The President clearly wants to start a wag-the-dog war with Syria and/or Iran over their failure to control their borders (while desiring to reward Mexico for the same thing). But the public's patience with Bush's grand strategy of Invite-the-World-Invade-the-World is at an all time low.
Bush's approval rating continues its natural course downward, now descending into deeply negative territory.
- Karl Rove, the alleged brains of the operation, and Scooter Libby, for 15 years a lawyer for international conman Marc Rich and for the last five years chief-of-staff for Vice President Cheney, are sweating out the possibility of indictment.
- Bush's attempt to elevate his undistinguished former personal lawyer Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court has been greeted with derision even by many of his most sycophantic supporters at outlets like National Review.
Here at VDARE.com we'd like to take this opportunity to mention:
We told you so.
For years, since well before 9/11, we've been a rare independent voice telling you that George W. Bush, Karl Rove, and the whole gang were men of both poor character and poor judgment.
Why? Because their immigration policy has always been ludicrous.
But the mainstream media was too biased on the topic to notice.
The Washington press corps wants cheaper nannies, pool guys, and busboys. And if the laws of the land have to be spit upon and the American working class pauperized to get them, well, that's a sacrifice the media class is willing to make.
Here at VDARE.com, we immediately pointed out that Bush's Open Borders plan of January 7, 2004 was not just an amnesty for current illegal aliens, but an invitation to all six billion foreigners on Earth to move to America if they could obtain a job offer at $5.15 per hour. (The minimum wage…for now.)
But the rest of the media barely mentioned the most radical plan to social engineering this nation ever proposed by a United States President.
The Bush Administration has presided over an unprecedented four consecutive years of increases in the poverty rate. But you'll almost never see the word "immigration" appear in articles about the economy. Ed Rubenstein of VDARE.com has been alone in documenting that a ridiculous fraction of the all the new jobs in the economy have gone to illegal immigrants.
And just wait for Bush's taxpayer-financed dollar rebuilding of New Orleans by illegal immigrants. That iconic American city will become a permanent outpost of Mexico.
But don't expect Bush to learn any lessons form his current travails. Even if he is forced to kick Rove to the curb, Bush's personal obsession with Mexicanizing America will continue.
The AP reported Friday:
"The consulting firm jointly headed by one possible Rove replacement, GOP strategist Ed Gillespie, has begun considering how Gillespie's clients might be reassigned if he were tapped for a White House assignment and how to handle the other ramifications of a White House move."
Like many of us, they look to Latin America and see America's future.
Unlike the rest of us, the Bushes seem to like what they see.
