Illegal immigration. Yesterday Mitch McConnell caved to Harry Reid. Harry Reid said that’s not good enough, Boehner has to cave – give us a clean bill. Boehner said something like, we did our job, the Senate has to do theirs and blah blah blah.
Have you ever seen Boehner not cave? May not happen today – hell’s bells they have to put on a big show till Friday (when they can all slip out of town real fast after) is my guess – then at the last minute……
So. An Coulter wrote a piece a week ago which speaks specifically to Republican treason. Worth the read…..
GOP DOUBLE-CROSSING TRAITORS
Now that a federal judge has held Obama’s illegal executive amnesty unconstitutional, perhaps U.S. senators will remember that they swore to uphold the Constitution, too.
Back when they needed our votes before the last election, Republicans were hairy-chested warriors, vowing to block Obama’s unconstitutional “executive amnesty” — if only voters gave them a Senate majority. The resulting Republican landslide suggested some opposition to amnesty.
Heading into the election, college professor Dave Brat took out the sitting House majority leader and amnesty supporter Eric Cantor in a primary, despite being outspent 40-1. It was the greatest upset in history since the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” at the Lake Placid Olympics: Never before has a House majority leader been defeated in a primary. And Brat did it by an astonishing 55.5 percent to 45.5 percent.
Again, the voters seemed to be expressing disquiet with amnesty.
After that, even amnesty-supporting Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., was denouncing Obama’s executive amnesty. “If the president were to do that,” he said, “and we have a Republican majority in the United States Senate, why, we have a number of options that we don’t now have to remind him to read Article I of the Constitution.”
Poll after poll showed Americans ranking illegal immigration as the No. 1 most important problem facing the nation. We haven’t changed our minds. Last week, an Associated Press-Gfk poll showed that Obama’s single most unpopular policy is his position on illegal immigration.
In other words, Obamacare is more popular than amnesty. That’s like losing a popularity contest to Ted Bundy.
Since at least 2006, voters have insistently told pollsters they don’t want amnesty. Seemingly bulletproof Republican congressmen have lost their seats over amnesty. President Bush lost the entire House of Representatives over amnesty. What else do we have to do to convince you we don’t want amnesty, Republicans? Make it a host on “The View”?
Her last sentence – “If a Republican majority in both houses of Congress can’t stop Obama from issuing illegal immigrants Social Security cards and years of back welfare payments, there is no reason to vote Republican ever again. ”
There is never a reason to vote again period, IMHO. The whole thing is here.
