President Bush on Critics of Immigration Bill:
From a Presidential address this morning in Georgia, with italics added:
Those determined to find fault with this [immigration] bill will always be able to look at a narrow slice of it and find something they don't like. If you want to kill the bill, if you don't want to do what's right for America, you can pick one little aspect out of it, you can use it to frighten people.UPDATE: Just to be clear, what I find notable -- and very unfortunate -- is the use of this kind of language coming from the President of the United States. I realize that it's easy to find such rhetoric online, and that some columnists use it. But it's different coming from the President of the United States, who deserves to be held to a much higher standard.
