A curious call for impeachment

News & Politics

Pat Buchanan says that the president has failed to protect the states against invasion?

The Democrats are divided by, well, nearly every issue but the Republicans have theirs too. Immigration. It's the great equalizer in many ways. There's almost no issue about which you can say almost anything and be mistaken for residing just about anywhere on the political spectrum.

Well, along with congressman Tom "bomb Mecca" Tancredo, Pat Buchanan doesn't think Bush is protecting us from immigrants. Thus the impeachment rumblings.

Ari Melber notes that it's Bush's second most unpopular issue and has been called the "biggest threat to the Republican Party" by a Republican pollster.

Immigrants don't tend to vote Republican. Ever really. Melber writes: "This immigration conflict exposes a fundamental tension in today’s embattled GOP, between its race-baiting Southern Strategy and Bush’s big tent for big business."

"Bush has yet to directly address Tancredo’s challenge or Buchanan’s call for impeachment. With immigration concerns heating up and Bush’s approval heading down, will he face the issue before fear, anger and xenophobia completely fracture his political base?" (Huffington Post)
