Bush smears illegal immigration opponents (12/18/2008 edition) - 12/20/08

On December 18, beloved and can't-leave-too-soon president George W Bush spoke at the American Enterprise Institute convocation and said [1] the following (via this):
...And I'm a little concerned about the tone of the immigration debate, labeling our party as "anti"-people. It's one thing to say they want the border enforced, and I understand that. But if a group of people think that a political party is against them, it doesn't matter what else you stand for. And the tone, in my judgment, at times got to be "anti." At one point in our history we had too many Jewish people and too many Italians. I don't know if you remember that. And it was -- I'm just confident people were saying, I can't believe this is the America that I came to live in where I'm "anti" -- people are "anti"-me.

And so we're going to have to work, like, with the Latino vote to say, we care about you, we hear you, and we share your values -- faith and family, small businesses, military vets or, you know, disproportionate -- more Latinos serve as a percentage of their -- of population in the military than any other group, if I'm not mistaken.
Who exactly is "they" in the second sentence? Wouldn't the normal thing be to use "you" when referring to a non-specific group of people? I assume Bush considers himself and those like the members of the AEI to be a completely different class of persons from the Great Unwashed.

The rest of statements have been said by many others, so to save time arguments showing how they're all wrong will be added at a later date; check the tags below.

Jeb Bush considering Senate run (the better to push amnesty?) - 12/03/08

From this:
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush - the younger brother of the president - is weighing a run for the Senate seat currently held by Republican Mel Martinez.

...A source close to Bush said he'll be thoughtful and methodical about the decision-making process. He will consider the impact a race would have on his family and his business and whether or not the U.S. Senate is the best forum from which to continue his advocacy for issues such as education, immigration and GOP solutions to health care reform.

In an interview with Politico immediately after November’s election, the former governor said the Republican Party should take four primary steps to regain favor with voters: Show no tolerance for corruption, practice what it preaches about limiting the scope of government (“There should not be such a thing as a Big Government Republican”), stand for working families and small business, and embrace reform.

Bush said conservatives should “do the math of the new demographics of the United States,” explaining that the Republican Party “can’t be anti-Hispanic, anti-young person - anti many things - and be surprised when we don’t win elections.”
The GOP isn't "anti-young person", even if it has a problem understanding modern technology. And, enforcing our laws is not anti-Hispanic.

Note that the word from the source contradicts what a Bush spokesman said yesterday.
