House GOP Still Not Breaking On NO AMNESTY By Michael Illions
Good for them. Tom Tancredo has a great line here:
“The president worked hard to get a Congress that agrees with him on this and now he’s got it,” said Rep. Tom Tancredo, Colorado Republican, in reference to the Democratic takeover of both chambers of Congress in the November elections. “But we’re still going to fight him on it.”
You know something is wrong when a republican president receives more applause from the democrats then his own party on something he says in a speech:
Mr. Bush on Tuesday reissued his call to welcome foreigners with a guest-worker plan, and he called for a path to citizenship for millions of those here illegally.
“We need to uphold the great tradition of the melting pot that welcomes and assimilates new arrivals,” Mr. Bush said in his speech to uneven applause. “We need to resolve the status of the illegal immigrants who are already in our country, without animosity and without amnesty.”
More Democrats than Republicans rose in applause.
Ted Kennedy praises G.W. Bush!!
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat, welcomed “the president’s renewed commitment” to comprehensive immigration reform. “The president has been a leader on this issue and I am hopeful that he will continue his efforts with members of his party so that we can pass legislation that will solve the problem once and for all,” he said after Tuesday’s address.
