I have long accepted the conventional wisdom that immigration reform would be a divisive momentum sapper for the Bush Administration.
Evidently, there is no momentum left to sap - fresh from his triumphs with Katrina and Miers, and with the situation in Iraq up in the air, Bush is going to tackle immigration. Happy Holidays.
Here is a recent NY Times article, as well as two days of Bush speeches in Texas and Arizona. Dick Morris had some interesting thoughts on November 9; going further back in time, I mocked a Times article from last June, and marveled at Bush's political peril with this topic in January.
The Captain sees this as a chance for Bush to build momentum - wow, I want whatever was in his Thanksgiving turkey (KIDDING - his skepticism shines though). Michelle M. is using phrases like "Most ridiculous line so far" and "lip service" - score her as on the fence.
MORE: If I am going to be writing regularly on Bush's immigration plan, I need to fine-tune SpellChek - is it "debacel", or "debacle"? "Disastrous" or "disasterous"? STILL KIDDING!
