Emigrating Republicans

With this immigration debate President Bush again finds himself closer to Senator Kennedy than the base of the Republican party. Thing is, while last time — on No Child Left Behind — the Republicans grudgingly went along because Bush was riding high, now he’s not looking like such a good bet for them. Tom DeLay post-No Child from this article:

Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Texas) confessed to Rush Limbaugh that he “voted for that awful education bill” only to support President Bush. “I came here to eliminate the Department of Education so it was very hard for me to vote for something that expands [it].”

Hard to see that happening again…
