GOP Spreading Anti-Immigrant "Hatred on the Campaign Trail"

While burying Bush's last State of the Union address, the Times editorial page showed its contempt for the GOP slate of candidates in Tuesday's lead editorial:

"Mr. Bush has included a call for immigration reform in all of his previous State of the Union addresses. But he has never matched that rhetoric with strong ideas or political passion. A push last year for comprehensive reform was defeated by his party's right wing, which continues to spread hatred on the campaign trail. His insight last night: 'Illegal immigration is complicated.'"
