Kick 'im When He's Down

One of my favorite weekly reads, the Anchoress, has sworn off writing and reading about politics, at least for the summer. But in her "farewell address" on the subject, she says a mouthful!
I just have to ask all of you people — on every side — who have decided that immigration is one man's burden, and that every good thing President Bush has done is to be negated because he hasn't snapped his fingers and done what YOU think is the solution to the immigration problem...what did Clinton do about immigration, what did Bush 41 do? What did St. Reagan do? What did Carter do? What has any president, congressperson or senator done about immigration for the last 30 years, except kick the issue down the road for someone else to deal with?

Reagan, if you remember, was the amnesty president. Clinton was the "borders? What's borders, everyone is our pal" president.

Lots of bills that were ignored by past presidents, particularly during our "vacation from history," have come due on Dubya's watch. The whole world seems to be coming due on his watch, and damn him for not handling everything perfectly. What a loser, eh? And it's easy to kick a guy when he's down, isn't it?
While I have to admit that I am not pleased with President Bush's outspoken reluctance to deal with this issue the way I want him to deal with it, the lady has a point! And she goes on to list and detail several of those points that have "come due." A very good read, as always, from Our Lady of Conservatism.
