Hopefully Hispanic voters are smart enough not to let Karl Rove pull the wool over their eyes. But I was surprised that TalkLeft thought Bush’s proposed immigration reforms were a good thing, after so many other bait and switch” moves by this administration. Then Economists for Dean highlighted this key quote from the article, which shows just how cynical the policy really is:

The White House plan is being designed by Bush’s senior adviser, Karl Rove, in consultation with the domestic policy staff.

We all know that Rove cares deeply about the plight of illegal immigrants, and isn’t a scheming, conniving, political operator who is only concerned about election results. Or at least, I hope we do.
