George W. Bush is One Illegal Border Crossing Away From Being Branded By Both Sides as the Worst President Ever

We all know that the left has already laughably turned a blind eye to Jimmy Carter and labeled George W. Bush as the worst president ever. While I believe that certain circumstances could take place that would make a convincing argument that Bush made good decisions after all and was a very good president; in my mind just the right (wrong) person illegally crossing the US-Mexican border could not only erase any chance of a decent legacy, it could make the "worst" brand stick to him from both sides. One terrorist individual or group could slip through the swiss cheese and pull off a successful attack that kills thousands. If that happens while the Bush Administration continues its reckless stance on border security; the best legacy he can hope for is to be branded the worst president ever. At worst, Bush could be branded a traitor due to his willful negligence.

Bush has some flaws that can be absolutely maddening to both sides of the aisle. He can be stubborn in his policy and refuse to communicate any message supporting his policy. If you agree with his policy, you tend to overlook his stubborness. In fact you can view it as a strong will to do what is right. If you disagree, then it is foolish stubbornness. Either way you cannot overlook the fact that he refuses to defend himself and his positions.

The immigration bill that was declared dead is again being revived and some think likely to pass. Before Bush began fighting for its return and passage, I was certain we would wake up one morning to hear that it was passed in the dead of night. But Bush is insistent upon standing in the gap and championing this manure pile. He does not explain himself. He does not defend the bill with any details. It is all generic mish-mash that shows complete myopia on the border problem. Bush was prepared to go to war with two countries, spend billions, risk his whole reputation in order to keep this country safe. However, he is equally stubborn in throwing away the hard fought and expensive safety of this country by keeping a porous border.

If Bush or anyone else wants more immigration from Mexico, why does it have to be a support of illegal immigration? Why cannot those who want more immigration from Mexico work to seal the border and then double or even triple the immigration quotas. With a sealed border we could have as many or more people from Mexico immigrating to the US, but they would be verified with background and health checks. If if some disagree on the Mexican immigration quota, we could all have more confidence that those who come have at least been checked out
and that the rule of law has been followed.

We keep hearing of many OTMs (other than Mexican) being caught at the border. It is a certainty that terrorist groups around the world are aware of our Achilles heel when it comes to border control. It is only a matter of time before we pay the price for such irresponsible behavior. After such clear and strong arguments being presented to Bush during this debate, the buck will certainly stop at his feet when we do.

    President Bush has formed a multilateral coalition dedicated to destroying the country we love. And for what? For ultra-cheap labor and the hope of new votes.

    It's nothing more than a mess of pottage, except it's our birthright he's selling.

    Sigh.

    Thing is, we more than likely have a bunch of sleeper cell terrorists already living in this country.

    His actions on this issue are insanely difficult to understand. I don't think it is about cheap labor. Really, the thing that makes the most sense is the wacko conspiracy theory that Bush is trying to unite North America into one single entity. Nothing else remotely lines up with his policy and actions.
