Mr. President, Have You Actually Read The Immigration Bill?

The President lashed out at the conservative base today, over the latest attempt to pass immigration legislation.

“Those determined to find fault with this bill will always be able to look at a narrow slice of it and find something they don’t like.”

“If you want to kill the bill, if you don’t want to do what’s right for America, you can pick one little aspect out of it, you can use it to frighten people. Or you can show leadership and solve this problem once and for all”

The Talk Radio Giants responded:

From Limbaugh today:

Rush said it was wrong for “the people who have stood by him through thick and thin when everybody’s been trying to destroy him,” and said he’d understand if some of his listeners “flew the coop” on Bush based on his immigration comments.

“I just wish he hadn’t done it, because he’s not going to lose me on Iraq, national security, war on terror, but he may lose some of you,” Limbaugh said. “The people who’ve hung with you, you don’t just cast them aside, even in a casual sense. That’s what worries me most.”

From Hannity:

In response to the President’s suggestion that those who oppose “amnesty” don’t have the country’s best interests in mind.

“They’re trying to ram this whole down our throats,” Hannity said. “You know, the idea that we don’t want to do what’s right for America? No, we actually do. We believe in the laws as presently passed, and we believe in consequences for those that break our laws.”

from Levin

“We are the 28 percent or the 32 percent who supports this president, and he puts us down? He treats us like we’re stupid?” Levin said. “Don’t degrade us, Mr. President, don’t smear us. Don’t project onto us what you want to think of us, because we aren’t what you say. And the idea that you’d turn on your own supporters and treat them this way, something’s wrong with that.”

“You imply that we have animosity toward a certain race of people. You treat us like we’re Klansmen. To be frank, it’s pretty disgusting, to be honest with you,” he continued. “We are studying the bill, we are breaking it down. Are you? And you really think by smearing us, you’ll win the day?”

    “For the people, by the people.” The President is turning the very people that voted for him (people like me ) against him. We already have laws on the books that are not enforced, now he’s going to make more insane laws, that more than likely still won’t be enforced. If Mr. Bush thinks that the people that broke the law and entered this Country will start obeying future laws, well, he’s lost his mind. If he believes the illegals will LEAVE AND GO BACK to land they came from, and then pay a 5000 dollar fine, he’s simply out of touch with reality. I’m going to go on the record and text this. I’m not calling for it, I’m just predicting it. Intense Civil Unrest will occur in the United States of America. It happened when the Black People were treated as non citizens, and it will happen again when the Citizens are being treated as nothing. I’m only 38 years old, but I believe I will see this in my life time. If the politicians believe they will hand over the keys to America to the 3rd world illegal vermin and the Islamic beetles that want to destroy America, then there is no recourse but Civil Disobediance.

    Our Constitution (RIP – thanks to Bush and ilk) requires the Federal Government to provide borders.

    Bush promised to UPHOLD the Constitution!

    Bush should be impeached and removed from office.

    Dick Cheney would do a better job with North Korea, Iraq, and Iran, anyway.
