Rep. Tom Tancredo (R.-Colo.) didnt hold back in his criticism of President Bush this morning at the Conservative Political Action Conferencedelivering what amounted to a presidential stump speech that could have easily been delivered in New Hampshire or Iowa.
Tancredo attacked the administration for its support of a guest-worker program for illegal aliens and its big-spending ways on education and Medicare prescription drugs.
It is the President who is out of step with his party, not Tom Tancredo, the Colorado Republican said to applause at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Northwest Washington, D.C.
Tancredo called for the repeal of two programs offered by President Bush: the No Child Left Behind Act and the Medicare prescription drug program. Both expanded the cost of government and drew the scorn of conservatives in Congress.
Tancredo said the Big Government policies of the Bush administration need to be halted. He said conservatives must return the GOP to a party of individual rights and shouldnt afraid to say it.
Bob Dole says Bob Dole use to do this.
It's early. Of course in 1999, GW Bush wasn't behaving like a political opportunist, anymore then Tom Tancredo is behaving like one today. Right? LOL
Why? He's not at a funeral, he's at a political meeting.
No child left out of socialism act is a definite loser.
The prescription drug plan is awful and oh, yeah, borders, language, culture.
Islam is NOT a religon of peace and mercy.
Tancredo is the only hope for the party, it seems.
Now stop that. You may upset all the Bush sycophants on FR.
Well, as long as he doesn't start using the first person plural. We are not amused when that happens.
Tom Tancredo is a good conservative and a loyal Republican. Tancredo is definitely raising the right issues --- reduce spending, limit govt bureaucracy and immigration reform. These are the areas where Bush and the GOP have failed over the last five years. Whether Tancredo can convince enough people he has what it takes to be POTUS, is an entirely different story. That includes this conservative.
Marked and noted. Carry on.
President Bush has been great on most things (except for our border.
He has been great on the war on terrorists.
But on the border he is a gross failure.
He acted fast and correct on the 3,000+ people murdered at the world trade center.
He ignores the many rapes, murders and robberies which might be larger than the murders and money loss at the world trade center.
Start building the fence.
It should be made a felony for Criminals who overstay their visas and Invaders.
I believe we should give amnesty to these poor CRIMINALS or INVADERS.
This should be a 2 week amnesty to get the heck out of our Country.
The ones who ignore this amnesty should be buried in a tent city jail and fined $10,000 or buried elsewhere.
All aiders and abettors of these CRIMINALS or INVADERS should get 1 year in a tent city jail and a $10,000 fine for each CRIMINAL aided.
Those in government should be the first ones charged.
Unless you really want to, no need to come back MM. We all know you think PresBush walks on water. Carry on.
Unfortunately, he'll never get the chance. The MSM will label him a bigot and the chicken livered bigshots in the Republican party who decide nominees won't have the guts to support him.
Then again, I didn't get one last year either. In hindsight I guess it was a bad idea when I yelled at that RNC guy that Dubya should get off his ass, abide by the Constitution and deport all the illegals. Or maybe it was because I said you were the only one in Congress worth a damn?
Oh well.... I get too many Christmas cards anyway.
