    Why is this even being seriously discussed? The concept of "America" has always been a collection of ideals and ideology. The "United States of America" is a country.

    There is not country or region that is named "America" on a map (except for a few towns and cities). You will find "North America" (which includes Canada, Mexico, etc.), "South America", "Central America", and "The United States of America".

    Trying to claim that Bush is not committed to the literal "United States of America" because of his reference to "America" is a collection of ideals is extremely foolish.

    And yes, I can anticipate the responses to this post pointing to our porous borders, our involvement in the United Nations, his willingness to work with Muslim citizens regarding policy decisions, etc...

    Discuss those issues on their own merit (or lack thereof) but don't foolishly try to make something sinister out of an accurate statement regarding the nature of "America". :rolleyes:

    Hog wash. I don't believe Bush feels that way no matter what Tancredo may say.

    What is a nation without borders? Do you believe our current president is in favor of borders or opposed?

    A nation without borders isn't really a nation anymore, is it?

    I certainly don't like George W. Bush as a president, but I won't buy into this nonsense. :sleep:

    I understand what he was trying to say although he might have said it better.

    We have borders, but it is the very "idea" or concept of America that truly makes us different.

    Wow Terry, some refreshing common sense. Or is it simply that now that you've won Congress, you can afford to be honest?

    Regarding accusations of dishonesty, it might be best to clean your own house, before peeking in the neighbor's windows.

    Look at the bright side, it will stop a lot of the illegal immigration problem.
