This is not good.
WASHINGTON - George W. Bush, despite all his recent bravado about being an apostle of small government and budget-slashing, is the biggest spending president since Lyndon B. Johnson. In fact, he's arguably an even bigger spender than LBJ.

President Bush's immigration reform package has badly damaged his ratings on the issue from his core supporters, with his approval rating for handling immigration plummeting among Republicans and conservatives.
It's no secret that the immigration issue has driven a HUGE wedge between conservatives and the White House. What seems to have made it worse is that instead of working to address the concerns of the party base, the White House has gotten more strident, and in some cases gone on the offensive against critics on the right.
