House Dem. scare tactic: George Bush will become ‘last Republican president in American history’

An Illinois Democrat tried to scare and shame Republicans into moving on immigration legislation Tuesday.

In a speech on the House floor, complete with visual props, Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez said, “If you do nothing on immigration, I guess you can take comfort in knowing that from Abraham Lincoln to George W. Bush, you had a pretty good run.”

“Even with a majority of Republican voters supporting immigration reform, the positions Republican candidates feel they must take in order to win over their base make them unelectable when they face the American people in the general election,” he said.

“So, Mr. Speaker, I give you George W. Bush — the man who will go down in history as the last Republican president in American history.”
