The former Governor of Texas, now the President of the United States, can't get either of his state's Republican Senators to back his Amnesty Bill. Of course, they shouldn't, Texas is one of the hardest hit states, but why doesn't ex-Governor Bush know that?

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas, who has been under intense pressure from the White House and Republican leadership to support a sweeping immigration overhaul, nevertheless announced today that she will vote against reviving the legislation when it returns to the Senate floor next week.

She was joined today by the state's other senator, Republican John Cornyn, who had been expected by the bill's supporters to take such a stance. They had aggressively lobbied Hutchison in hopes of adding her vote to the 60 necessary to revive the stalled legislation.
