This is my prediction of Bush's speech tonight. He's going to split the difference. I won't like him for it but I have fairly low expectations of his ability to move on domestic issues. He'll gradually build a wall and he'll gradually regularize the 12 million illegals. (I've been saying 11 million). He'll make a big show of the National Guard mobilization and throw more money at DHS for this crap.
I also think Hugh Hewitt is correct that the 'Deport them all now' crowd will grumble loudly and accept the wall. But they will backstab indefinitely.
As a side note, here's some interesting facts about one of the richest guy in Los Angeles, Ming Hsieh. I got this from the LA Business Journal today.
[Hsieh] Founded South Pasadena-based Cogent in 1990, which developed automated fingerprint identification technology that can quickly match a print to a database of millions. Company raised almost $250 million in an initial public offering in 2004; grew into a $1.7 billion company last year. Hsieh owns 55 percent of outstanding shares. Cogent has a lock on border security through contracts with the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security, the governments of Venezuela and Jordan, and the Italian police.
So let's see how happy this guy might be. Let's see how happy Republicans are going to be.
