On the immigration debate

Instapundit agrees with Brendan Nyhan that Bush's advocacy of the immigration bill is pushing a bill into open debate that is divisive for us Republicans, and may just relegate us to the minority party.

I think he's right, and it's true that it's driving the hardcore partisans nuts. But this is one of the things I have always respected about President Bush... I believe he really tries to do what he believes is right, and he really couldn't care less which side of the aisle the idea is associated with.

At least he's not just sticking his head in the sand and pretending we don't have a problem.
