NOONAN: PRESIDENT BUSH HAS TORN THE CONSERVATIVE COALITION ASUNDER
From the op-ed: What political conservatives and on-the-ground Republicans must understand at this point is that they are not breaking with the White House on immigration. They are not resisting, fighting and thereby setting down a historical marker--"At this point the break became final." That's not what's happening. What conservatives and Republicans must recognize is that the White House has broken with them. What President Bush is doing, and has been doing for some time, is sundering a great political coalition. This is sad, and it holds implications not only for one political party but for the American future (Wall Street Journal). And Charles Krauthammer warns of “The Immigration Reform Monster” (Townhall.com).
