Text of Bush’s Speech on Immigration

Good evening. I have asked for a few minutes of your time to discuss a matter of national importance: the reform of America’s immigration system.

The issue of immigration stirs intense emotions and in recent weeks, Americans have seen those emotions on display. On the streets of major cities, crowds have rallied in support of those in our country illegally. At our southern border, others have organized to stop illegal immigrants from coming in. Across the country, Americans are trying to reconcile these contrasting images.

And in Washington, the debate over immigration reform has reached a time of decision. Tonight, I will make it clear where I stand, and where I want to lead our country on this vital issue.

We must begin by recognizing the problems with our immigration system. For decades, the United States has not been in complete control of its borders. As a result, many who want to work in our economy have been able to sneak across our border and millions have stayed.

Saddam Hussein WAS a threat to US

A report by Charles A. Duelfer, head of the CIA’s Iraq Survey Group weapons-hunting teams was released this week. The major focus by media and Democrats has been to reinforce John Kerry’s position of “Wrong war, wrong place, wrong time.” The main point of the report, according to them, is that Iraq has not been making WMD since 1991. This morning however, I heard on The Today Show from Charles Duelfer who said that large portions of the report come from Saddam’s interrogation. Can he really be trusted? Also, an article from the British news site icBerkshire.co.uk concludes from the same report that “Saddam would have indeed built up his capabilities, built up his strength and posed an even greater threat to the people of Iraq and the people of the region than before.”

A belief that American’s rarely question is that “if you want it enough, anything is possible.” Saddam did want to make WMD and was an “even starker” threat than we thought because of his intense motivation. Another part of the report shows that Saddam was actually buying off members of the UN through the oil for food program and was counting on France and others to veto the US if we ever pressed to go to war against Iraq. This reinforces the notion that John Kerry’s Iraq policy of letting the UN do it’s inspections wouldn’t have worked since these countries were in the hands of Saddam.

George Bush is accused of going to war for oil, but it turns out that the allies that John Kerry wants so badly were getting oil for not going to war while Saddam was lining his pockets with their gold.

Stop the Violence

What is happening to our country. When did we loose the freedom of speech? This picture is of three-year-old Sophia Parlock who showed up with her father, Phil, at the Tri-State Airport in Huntington, W.Va. today. They showed up to see John Edwards as he made a brief stop to conclude his 2 day bus tour. Sounds okay, right? Well, it was until her dad gave her a Bush-Cheney sign. Even that shouldn’t be a problem in the country where free speech is obsessed over and where even pornography has been granted free speech protection. But some obsessed, angry, Kerry-Edwards supporter took it upon himself to teach this little girl about free speech in America by tearing up her sign!

I don’t understand the anger on the other side of the political spectrum. I don’t remember any protestors breaking into Democratic National Convention and shouting durring Kerry’s speach! Yet, how many protesters did we see breaking into the Republican National Cconvention? Not to mention the protestors on the streets. Did they really convince anyone to vote for Kerry by breaking laws or spraying urine on Bush supporters with squirt guns? I don’t think so. I don’t object to the supporters of Kerry, or those against Bush voicing their opinions; but I want to be able to voice my support for Bush without fearing for my safety, having my car keyed, or having my sign torn up.

Why I am Voting for President Bush

With Election Day just a few weeks away I feel it important that the world know why I will be voting for President George W. Bush’s reelection. I hope that as you read that you keep an open mind. This election and its issues have been the most polarizing that I have seen in my short life of a quarter century, and I feel it important that I add my voice to those supporting our great President.

I say “great” and I mean that. I was in Europe at the time of the 2000 election and I missed all of the campaign fuss, the confusion in Florida, and my first memory of hearing about George W. Bush was in a Spanish newspaper saying that days after the Presidential election neither he nor Al Gore had been decided victor. My biggest political concern then was that the US was making a fool of it’s self to the world. I mention this only because my opinion of President Bush has been formed entirely during the term of his presidency. I have no personal experience with his past or what the media portrayed of him prior to his election.
