Simply Incredible . . . Incredibly STUPID!: Bush RENOMINATES Julie Myers to Helm Immigration

By Debbie Schlussel
My inbox was filled with “Julie L. Myers” Google Alerts, this morning. Why? Not to announce her graceful exit. No, that would be too classy, too wise, too logical.
Nope. It was to announce that our ill-advised President RENOMINATED Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess” to continue heading up Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Incredible. The Veruca Salt Mollification treatment continues at the White House (except, in this case, unfortunately, the spoiled girl doesn’t fall into the bin of nut-eating squirrels at the Wonka factory).


Myers: Bush Jumps the Shark Twice, Renominating Real-Life Veruca Salt

It’ll be great for me if Myers stays. She provides plenty of material–mostly comedy, a lot of tragedy, and–of course–parody . . . parody far from what a real immigration enforcement chief would be like.
But it will be terrible for AMERICA! Who knew you could “Jump the Shark” TWICE! on immigration enforcement . . . with the same actress?
Says one ICE agent:

President admits one mistake on national tv…won’t admit to Myers Mistake

Amen. Trust me–he speaks for the whole agency (minus Myers’ cronies at the top who got their $45,000 bonuses).
I’ve already said it all on Ms. Myers-Wood-Cronyette’s 1-year tenure, marked on Tuesday. This is the absurdity for which I shall remember the Bush Administration: cronyism and incompetence that keeps repeating like bad bean dip.
Our only hope is that the now Democrat-dominated U.S. Senate finally finds its testicles (which were nowhere to be seen under the Republicans) and skewers this woman, first in hearings, and then by voting her down.
But don’t hold your breath. They are as serious as Bush in enforcing our nation’s immigration laws, as in . . . not very.


Erik “Ponch” Estrada & LaToya “Bizarro” Jackson More Qualified to Run ICE

Of note, along with Myers’ absurd renomination, yesterday, CBS premiered the show, “Armed and Famous.” Erik Estrada, LaToya Jackson, and other D-List celebs got deputized as police. They went through the police academy and a lot of the training cops go through. And they made arrests.
Sad to say, America can now say that Erik Estrada (real name: Henry Enrique Estrada) and LaToya Jackson are more qualified to run ICE than Julie Myers.
At least, they have law enforcement experience. Unfortunately, they just don’t have her connections.
I nominate “Ponch” for ICE honcho. A joke? Not any more so than the Myers nomination and renomination.

If I had a time machine, I would go back to 2000 and make darn sure that Al Gore won. The last six years have been nothing but a nightmare for America because of the G.W.Bush presidency. And if any of you think it was stupid of Bush to renominate Julie Myers, consider Bush’s stand on immigration and think again. Myers is doing exactly what Bush expects her to do. BTW, has Bush even considered pardoning those two brave Border Patrol agents who might be going to prison for 12 years for doing their job? I don’t think so!
How about Harriet Miers instead of Julie Myers? 😛

I don’t know about wishing Gore had won. As bad as Bush has done some things, I think $10 a gallon gas under Gore and no recrimination for 9/11 would have been far worse.
Some guys just fall for those “Runaway Bride Eyes.” Like that guy who still wanted to take away the Runaway Bride Bush just can’t resist those eyes,either. Debbie should post a warning about that Myers picture about staring at it for more than 10 seconds.
“All the boys thinks she’s a spy, she’s got…Julie Myeres eyessssssss…”

As bad as Bush is on some issues, Gore would’ve been a nightmare. America would be beholden to the Commie Chinese, the mullahs, and the enviro-whackos. The economy would be in the tank, and the U.S. would be a suburb of Mexico, more than it is now.

Ok, really..Al Gore??? That is beyond ridiculous! He’s not competent to run this country! Did you happen to miss his insane rants a few years ago? If we’ve had a “nightmare for America” as you called it, it’s b/c of the islamofascist war against the U.S. and liberals such as yourself who refuse to believe that they want to destroy us.

When he’s out of the White House, I think Tony Snow should have some explanations to do.
I can’t wait to read president Karl Rove’s memoirs either.
Right now we can’t do anything. This White House is out of control. I don’t think the Democrats can change president Karl Rove’s mind on anything as much as we hope.
They may try to impeach Barney -Karl Rove’s dog- but that’s as far as they will go.
They don’t want to look as if they are wasting their time on a lame duck president. They may bite him a little bit every now and then, but that’s it.
Their strategy is to show the American people that they are doing “positive,” “concrete things” so it can be added to their records by 2008.
Of course, any veto by president Rove will be taken against him and will be used to show that the “Republicans are not doing what the American people want.”
I see the name “Bush” in Debbie’s story, who is that guy?
As far as Gore is concerned, I think if he was president it would’ve been worse because at least in Rove’s administration some people talk about a “War on Terror,” but in a Gore administration the talk will be only about the “War on Global Warming.”
