You Get What You Vote For

There are two domestic issues on which one always knew where George W. Bush stood, since before 9-11, since before the election of 2000. One is his advocacy of the federal takeover of education and charitable programs. The other is his support for amnesty for illegal immigrants.

To "conservative" supporters of President Bush who have finally abandoned him on the immigration issue, I must ask, where've you been? Bush was a lousy President and will continue to be a lousy President, regardless of his position on immigration. Yes, this is a terrible immigration bill, but it is a bill one should have expected Bush to support - regardless of his competence or positions in other areas.

Bush is no worse a President in 2007 than he was in 2004, and conservatives should have run someone against Bush in the Republican primaries then. Anyone who voted for Bush in 2004 deserves this immigration bill. You get what you vote for. Stop whining.
