The Backlash Begins

Yesterday, I announced that, after 6 loooong years, George W. Bush is dead to me. The final straw - Bush's turning on Republicans over their criticism of the Amnesty Bill.

Seems like I'm not alone.

LaShawn Barber say's "It's Official - Bush is an idiot":
And I voted for him. Twice. I voted for Clinton twice, too, but I’m more ashamed of voting for Bush.
Ouch.

Peggy Noonan has a great piece at WSJ Online. She's telling the truth, and the truth sucks:
Leading Democrats often think their base is slightly mad but at least their heart is in the right place. This White House thinks its base is stupid and that its heart is in the wrong place.
Hot Air is encouraging people to express their opposition to the Amnesty bill through some very special "donations":
Enough is enough. You can help stop amnesty in its tracks. Send cero pesos to the RNC and DNC headquarters. Include a note protesting both parties’ pandering. Note that open borders create an unacceptable national security problem. Be civil, but firm. Tell them to pare amnistia ahora–stop amnesty now.
Speaking of donations, it seems the RNC is seeing a drop in small-donor donations.

Gee guys, if that's the case, why not hit up you new "base"? I'm sure they'll do the donating Americans don't want to do!

Give Bush and Karl some credit. They tried for 5 years with a GOP controlled Congress to get this bill on his desk. Failed all 5 years . So they got the Dems in control of Congress. Bush is a left wing extremist; not an idiot. You thnk he blew the 06 elections because he's dumb? Wrong. He arn Karl as crazy like foxes! Liberal liars but smart!

Rodney, I hate to say it, but I can't help but think you may have a point. With friends like W, who needs liberals?
