Lou or Jeb?
Lou Dobbs talking to 60 Minutes about leading the fight against illegal immigration a few years ago:
I have worked with migrant workers in the fields. I'm probably one of the few people in the debate who actually has. I've got the greatest respect for those folks. Hard-working, decent, and back-breaking work.
The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn't come legally, they come to our country because their families -- the dad who loved their children -- was worried that their children didn't have food on the table. And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it's not a felony. It's an act of love. It's an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn't rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.

Get that man a blog
From Skip Hollandsworth's May 94 Texas Monthly article:
Bush's friends and supporters, however, portray him as an articulate, quick-witted leader, a far better debater than his father, and surprisingly, a savvier politician. Nor is he timid about matching his personality against that of the legendary wisecracking Richards. "Don't underestimate this guy," says Fred McClure, a former senior legislative aide to President Bush in Washington and now a Dallas financier and neighbor of the younger Bush. "He's no doubt the biggest political animal in the family—and clearly more competitive than his father."
Pretty epic call by Fred McClure.
