ETHNICITY, who is Bush trying to reach with his immigration speech?

Tonight President George W. Bush will address the TV audience on immigration.

Immigration is not one of the top issues facing our country. The debt/deficit, Iraq War, eviscerating the Bill of Rights, global warming and a bunch of other stuff are higher priorities.

But Karl Rove (aka "Bush's Brain") doesn't care what policy is important, he cares about message and politics.

And Rove is hoping to shift the national dialogue to immigration so Bush can fire-up the Right Wing base with tough talk about border security.

So what do the get-tough-on-border-security types really think about immigration?
Not only will it work, but one can easily estimate how long it would take. If it took the Germans less than four years to rid themselves of 6 million Jews, many of whom spoke German and were fully integrated into German society, it couldn't possibly take more than eight years to deport 12 million illegal aliens, many of whom don't speak English and are not integrated into American society.

See Crooks & Liars.
