The Times UK gets it right

Bush posts troops at Mexican border to appease Right

36,000 troops on the border? Bush says ‘temporary.” Yeah, right.

My take: Bush and Rove don’t want an agreement on immigration rights until at least after the election (if at all.) Why? Because they want the hard Right in a frenzy over the issue and thus mobilized to vote in November.

Given the usual Democratic spinelessness and inability to take a stand, this might actually work. The Dems think all they have to do to win in November is do nothing. They are wrong.
