The King Of Satire Speaks: Bush accuses conservative critics of fear-mongering on immigration

Notable Bush quotes from yesterday...

Firing back at conservative critics, President Bush defended his plan to overhaul immigration laws Tuesday and accused its opponents of "trying to rile up people’s emotions" with misinformation.

"I’m sure you’ve heard some of the talk out there about people defining the bill. It’s clear they hadn’t read the bill. They’re speculating about what the bill says, and they’re trying to rile up people’s emotions."

The president said he had no hesitations about working with Kennedy despite their sharp differences over Iraq and other issues. "The reason why is, he can get the job done," Bush said aboard Air Force One.

And the truth of the matter is, a lot of this immigration debate is driven as a result of Latinos being in our country," he said.

People shouldn’t fear our capacity to uphold our motto: E Pluribus Unum." The Latin phrase means "Out of many, one."

"The fence sends a clear signal that we’re serious about enforcing the border," Bush said. "A lot of these ranchers down there are saying, `Wait a minute. Bad idea.’ I presume we’re not going to build a fence on places where people don’t want it."
