The neo-Cons at “Commentary” and “Weekly Standard” are promoting your argument.
It makes no sense to me.
Obama has already given “Executive Order Amnesty” to 2 million illegals - those brought here as “children” and those with a legal spouse or with legal dependent family members.
Once he gets citizenship for the other 9 million, Texas will vote Democrat in 2016, and Conservatism will be dead.
The MSM has been demonizing Republicans 24-7 on every issue imaginable for the last 20 years - why would Obama have to “torpedo” immigration reform to make that happen?
If Congress doesn't vote for Amnesty, Obama will just grant Amnesty by Executive Order.
Why did he have to demagogue the ‘fiscal cliff’ when he had just won the election? Why did he have to jump on gun control with both feet less than three hours after the shooting at Newtown? You don’t think he or Schumer or Durbin really intend to work with Rubio on his plan do you? 0bama came out the day after the Schumer-Durbin-Rubio press conference and threw a wrench in their ‘bi-partisan’ announcement. This is a bait-and-switch IMO.
