The B Word has come up a lot lately, specifically Jeb Bush and GW Bush. For example, writing these two posts alone was enough to make my stomach turn: "George W Bush ruined the family name." No worries, W, Jeb's up to the task, too and "Jeb Bush": If it weren't for Karl Rove, SCOTUS, we wouldn't have HAD a torturer-in-chief!
Now GW Bush's name has been uttered for an entirely different reason by Congressman Luis Gutierrez in the video above:
May 20, 2014 - Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez warned Republicans that President George W. Bush may be the last Republican elected President if they do not act on immigration reform. The Congressman reminded his colleagues that 65,000 Latino citizens turn 18 every month. There are only 18 working days left before July 4th for the House Republicans to pass immigration.
Connect with Rep. Gutiérrez:
I kind of like the sound of that. Let's hear it again:
"I give you George W. Bush: The man who will go down in history as the last Republican president in American history."
And again: Per Rep. Gutierrez, voters would never elect another Republican president if the GOP blocks immigration reform. I could put that on an audio loop and happily play it over and over.
However, I'd rather that Congress pass meaningful immigration reform, that families were reunited or were able to stay together, that DREAMers could get a good education, good jobs, contribute to society, and participate in our democracy, that discrimination, bigotry, and racism fade away, and that the melting pot that is the USA remain intact.
But that little "permanent rejection" bonus that would come on the heels of the GOP continuing to hypocritically push their "outreach" messaging as they obstruct progress? That would be nice, too.
