Thanks for Nothing, G.W. Bush!

John W. Lillpop

As conservatives survey the battlefield of American politics the morning of November 8, it is not a pretty sight. The nation’s capitol has fallen into the hands of those who would rather switch than fight, except when it comes to big government, higher taxes, abortion, illegal immigration, and socialism.

The man most responsible for the smoldering ruins of conservatism is President G.W. Bush. From the war in Iraq to his complete abandonment of Republican principles on all issues except lower taxes, G.W. Bush has been a complete disaster for the conservative movement.

Of all of Bush’s wrongheaded notions, his foolish policy on border security and illegal immigration has been the most distressing. By sending American troops to fight and die in Iraq and Afghanistan while refusing to secure U.S. borders to prevent invasion by millions of illegal aliens from Mexico, Bush has sacrificed American sovereignty and security for cheap tomatoes and lettuce.

This sell-out of American interests to a foreign nation (Mexico) should cause Bush to be impeached and removed from office. Impeachment, if not actual removal, is an action long called for by real conservatives like Patrick Buchanan.

For the most part, the newly installed Democrat-majority U.S. House will make the next two years a living hell for President Bush. Nancy Pelosi and her merry band of leftist nitwits will most likely find Bush an ideal candidate for the impeachment option.

Unfortunately for America and Americans, one of the few issues that Bush and the new Democrat majority will probably agree on is illegal immigration. That could mean that Bush’s nonsensical proposal to grant amnesty to 12-20 million illegal aliens could become a reality.

Picture the scene if you have the stomach: From the White House, President Bush surrounded by the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, and Ted Kennedy proudly signs the amnesty bill.

Thus, 12-20 million criminals are instantly made into Democrat voters with a stroke of Bush’s pen. In effect, Bush and the Democrats will have turned the American southwest into a suburb of Tijuana, Mexico.

Should that happen, this is one conservative who will support Nancy Pelosi and her impeachment machine as they seek to put a premature end to G.W. Bush’s tenure at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Thanks for nothing, G.W. Bush!
