I am hearing from some people — including some quite sensible people, like
Parapundit.com’s Randall Parker, though he hasn’t blogged on it yet — that
the Bush plan on immigration is the last straw, and they will not be voting
for GWB in November. Well, I think that’s disproportionate. A lot of what
this administration’s done has made me angry — heck, I have only just got
over steaming about the Medicare boondoggle, which will beggar my children
so Bush can take Florida in ‘04 (prior to which, I had just got over
steaming about the preposterous “No Child Left Behind Act,” which seems to
mandate that all schoolchildren must be above average). But there’s a war
on, and I want a government willing to fight it. This is that government.
AND we got a tax cut, with the consequent boost to the economy. AND our
Secretary of State, for all his faults, no longer spends hours at a time
waiting in reception rooms for an audience with people like Arafat, Assad,
Kim Jong Il, and Gaddafi. AND we got a partial-birth abortion ban… Bush
for me — but we’ve got to make him trash this ludicrous plan.
