There’s been an enormous amount of immigration talk lately. Congress is currently looking at various immigration reform proposals. Newt Gingrich thinks the U.S. should just start enforcing our current immigration laws, which really would make the most sense.
Apparently, President Bush “generally favors plans to give millions of illegal immigrants a chance at U.S. citizenship without leaving the country, but does not want to be more publicly supportive because of opposition among conservative House Republicans, according to senators who attended a recent White House meeting.” Granting amnesty to illegals would probably force me to move out of the country for good. Although, this could possibly result in a huge voter turnout by hispanics in favor of republicans.
I’ll be writing more about immigration in the next couple days, and how the mexican-american population usually manages to sabotage their own agenda.
Other blogs on the bush amnesty subject include Outside The Beltway, Michelle Malkin, and Iowa Voice.
I saw this via WizBang just a few minutes ago. It’s scary that Reuters has the balls to photoshop a note to make it look like Bush wanted to take a bathroom break during a meeting.
Reuters has already explained, saying “There was no malicious intent. That’s not what we do.” That’s a bullshit explanation though for photoshopping a note Bush was writing. They’re obviously trying to make him look bad. It’s a direct attack against him if they knowingly did it. Someone obviously did because you can see where they blanked out the original text. It’s too white compared to the rest of the paper.
Daily Pundit filled me in on the Reuters explanation. Little Green Footballs has a couple updates.
I can’t believe they would actually use that photoshopped image in actual news articles. This is probably one of the most fucked up things we’ve seen from Reuters. I’ve lost what little respect I had for the MSM. This type of thing is just wrong.
UPDATE: I need to clarify a little it would seem. I fully understand that Reuters could have enhanced the image to make the text more readable. For those of you that say the note was shown to show Bush for the puppet he is, you’re wrong. He needs to show a certain level of diplomacy at meetings like that. He can’t just get up and go piss when he feels like it, it would offend someone.
