Borderline Dissention

The House of Representatives is pushing a border-themed immigration bill that doesn't seem to endorse all of President Bush's ideas.

I don't know about everyone else, but it seems that the only thing Congressional Republicans are willing to publicly back Bush on is Iraq. Every other issue (torture, Social Security, the Patriot Act) has ended up creating splinter groups.

Why? The 2006 mid-term elections are right around the corner (politically speaking) and many Republicans believe Bush has his best interests ahead of their survival. Living in a bubble can give people that impression.
