No, I'm not talking about one the American soldiers killed or maimed as a result of his disastrous "war on terror," or any of those Americans whose lives have been damaged as a result of his foul "open-border" policies.
Tonight, as Bush lip-syncs his "State of the Union" speech, the wife of Border Patrol agent Ignacio Ramos will be in the audience as a guest of Rep. Dana Rohrbacher (R-CA).
Ramos, like agent Jose Compean, is currently in solitary confinement in a federal prison. Their crime: defending their country against illegal-alien drug smugglers at a time when George Bush will sacrifice anyone to keep his amigos South of the border happy.
An interesting new twist regarding the persecution of Ramos and Compean, one that illustrates the corruption of the Bush-controlled "Justice" Department and their desperation to find charges to throw at the two agents, can be read here.
In any case, Ms Ramos will be there watching tonight. I hope Bush is made aware of that, and at has enough basic decency left to feel guilty for destroying two American families just to advance his pathetic immigration agenda.
Since he has shown no remorse for any of his many other blunders, or for his outright incompetence, I'm not holding out any hope that Ms Ramo's presence will cause him as much as a second's discomfort.
But it should.
PARENTHETICAL UPDATE INCLUDING ONE-FINGER SALUTE TO GEORGE BUSH: Here's an interesting tidbit from his "State of the Union" speech: "Extending hope and opportunity in our country requires an immigration system worthy of America – with laws that are fair and borders that are secure. When laws and borders are routinely violated, this harms the interests of our country. To secure our border, we are doubling the size of the Border Patrol – and funding new infrastructure and technology.
Yet even with all these steps, we cannot fully secure the border unless we take pressure off the border – and that requires a temporary worker program. We should establish a legal and orderly path for foreign workers to enter our country to work on a temporary basis. As a result, they won’t have to try to sneak in – and that will leave border agents free to chase down drug smugglers, and criminals, and terrorists...[w]e need to uphold the great tradition of the melting pot that welcomes and assimilates new arrivals. And we need to resolve the status of the illegal immigrants who are already in our country – without animosity and without amnesty."
George Bush is a lying, unprincipled shitweasel. I'd publicly kiss Nancy Pelosi's butt in public -- much as I despise her -- if she would introduce an impeachment resolution in Congress tomorrow.
