You know, I have yet to see a post about the failure immigration bill being a defeat to anyone in the legislative branch of government.
The US Senate meted out a severe blow to President George W. Bush Thursday, blocking a landmark immigration reform seen as one of his last, best hopes for a legacy-boosting second term victory.Why isn't anyone calling it like it is: a failure of Harry Reid and Kennedy to get something done that is on their agenda? The fact that it is being backed by Bush doesn't make it his responsibility.
Which is, incidentally, why Reid isn't pushing very hard. He knows that if it bombs, the status quo is maintained -- which nobody in Washington minds -- and he avoids all blame, to boot.
