The final nail in America’s self-built coffin.
NO cheers, unfortunately.
Levin ripped Bonehead to shreds on his show. Listening to replay now.
Let's replace Boehner with a real Speaker (Ryan, Bachmann, and Cantor come to mind), and send Boehner to spend quality time with his collection of crying towels.
I wonder if these geniuses ever make the calculation of: how many votes from our base will we lose by pandering to Latinos?
It’s almost a shock to see this happening so soon. Boner is ready to cave on most everthing before the dust even settles from Tuesday’s election.
HEY! Sobber of The House Boehner! Yeah, YOU!
Here’s a “Shovel-Ready” idea for you: Just enforce the Federal laws that are on the books!
Sheriff Joe Arpaio has them memorized, even if you Boehner have forgotten the laws that you wrote, back in the day.
Boehner’s probably figuring there is really nothing to lose because many of the illegals or immigrants will leave on their own when they discover there are no jobs here
Here’s the only deal that works: Enforce the law! Control the borders!
The Republican House has rejected these amnesty bills many times before. But the question now is how many will cave in and join Boner?
The GOP-e has been wanting to grant amnesty to illegal aliens since the George W. Bush administration. The recent election gives them the perfect opportunity.
I also believe the Republican establishment is secretly pleased that they don’t have to fight to overturn Obamacare. They want the power it transfers to the federal government as much as the Dems do.
There was no big Hispanic vote in Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, NH, or Minnesota. The Dems and MSM are trying to stampede the Reps into making a deal on immigration and amnesty.
Freepers, we need some sort of guest worker program and e-identification system and some other things. This is straight out of the Texas Republican convention manual. People who are here illegally should get in line and then pay a fine before they can get their official status from the Gov. We’ve got to do something like this and get this issue put behind us.
You’re right, but Republican controlled Houses have always rejected amnesty, but Boner is a whole new ball game. I just hope very few other Republican House members join him. I have no idea how it will go with Boner as ‘leader’ of the Republicans in the House.
Does Boehner actually believe that giving Amnesty to illegals will ensure that they vote Republican..he is fooling himself into believing that. The second they are given citizenship(for being criminals, I guess crime does pay) they will get welfare, food stamps, and every other Govt goody available..they will be owned by the Dem party..all Boehner is doing is giving the Dem party 12+ million more votes
Folks we need to get this monkey off our back. Something has to be done. The status quo is Obama ignoring the law for another 4 years. We missed the chance to have the GOP be the architect of the solution when Bush’s attempt at reform died. Now Obama gets the credit. But either way the sooner we get this done the sooner we can get to work other things that may stop the bleeding in this growing demographic.
I know there is story today that says Hispanics vote Democrat for reasons other than immigration but the subject is still important to many of them. We have to compromise. We can’t just stand with our arms folded and demand everyone bend to our wishes. Elections have consequences and I say it’s time to remove this weapon from the Rats playbook.
We solved the problem with Simpson-Mazzoli back in 1986. See how efficient and reliable our government is.
Why would a Hispanic who is here legally and played by the rules be in favor of others cheating the system?
And the usual suspects on Fox and in the GOPe have diagnosed the reason for the losses on Tuesday and determined that amnesty for illegals will win millions of future votes for Republicans.
