GWB Insulting Base Again, with Martinez

Yah. I'm beginning to wonder if the Dems weren't right after all--maybe GWB is the dumbest guy to ever have graduated from college.

With the resignation of Republican National Committee Chair Ken Mehlman, President Bush intends to fill the post with Florida's Mel Martinez, a Hispanic who led the battle in the U.S. Senate for amnesty for illegal aliens.

"Martinez is going to lead the fight for amnesty that Bush could not win when Republicans controlled the
Congress," one angry RNC member told the Washington Times' Ralph Hallow.
Unable to extract an amnesty bill from Denny Hastert and Co. in the House like the McCain-Kennedy bill he supports, Bush is looking to cut a deal with San Francisco Nancy.

Amnesty is to be the Bush legacy, and Martinez is to be the face of the party on the most explosive domestic issue of our era. For that, GOP precinct workers walked the line to hold Congress for the party.

Never mind the fact that Hispanics voted 70% Democratic this last election. Notwithstanding that, even the Dimmies understand that a "comprehensive" (read: amnesty) bill is a Third Rail:

"In the days after the election, Democratic leaders surprised pro-immigration groups by not including the issue on their list of immediate priorities. Experts said the issue is so complicated, so sensitive and so explosive that it could easily blow up in the Democrats' faces and give control of Congress back to Republicans in the next election two years from now. And a number of Democrats who took a hard line on immigration were also elected to Congress." (WaPost)

GWB is notorious for being stubborn, and when fighting terrorists, that's a good thing. Too bad he sees Americans who like secure borders as merely another variant of 'terrorists'.
