No surprise that this little bit of news has gotten very little attention.
WASHINGTON - Ex-President Bill Clinton jumped off the fence yesterday to throw his support behind President Bush in the bruising battle over immigration reform.
Clinton, who's had no problems bashing Bush in the past, stepped up to laud the president's two-pronged push to tighten the U.S. border with Mexico and offer a path to citizenship for many of the 11 million illegal aliens already here.
"There is no perfect solution," Clinton said during graduation festivities at Princeton.
Added Clinton: "I sort of favor what the president tried to do because we were trying to get the best of both worlds" - protect the borders and provide a path to citizenship.
Although I think she's goes too far criticizing Ann Coulter's recent comments on the "Jersey Girls" (since when aren't you allowed to criticize widows for exploiting 9/11?), The Anchoress makes some great points about how the extreme-right can be just as stupid and ornery as the liberals they claim to loathe. Then too, are moderates and centrists the only ones really interested in putting aside their egos, looking at both sides of the argument and actually getting down to solving our nation's problems?
Because the criticism President Bush is STILL getting for a plan on illegal immigration that's actually feasible (and is NOT amnesty), is really irking me.
