Sean Hannity, John Boehner say GOP should tackle immigration reform
Yahoo News ^ | November 9, 2012 | Liz Goodwin

Posted on 11/09/2012 8:57:48 AM PST by Hilda

Just two days after President Barack Obama sailed to re-election over Mitt Romney, boosted by more than 70 percent of the Latino vote, some Republicans are striking a new tone on illegal immigration.

They’ll try to rush forward on this while conservatives are crying in their beer.

Yeah. Real smart. They’ve done this again and again. Bring in more Latinos so they can vote Democrat forever. And let’s not forget to bring in some more boatloads of Muslim Somalis.

How’d that work for the Republicans in California? Or anywhere else?

I think this election is:

liberals and GOP elites Vs Conservatives and tea party

GOP elites are rather willing to oust tea party.

So I guess Hannity would rather join them than beat them?

So much for sticking to your guns.

No one should be talking about “reform” (aka amnesty) until an Israeli-style wall is built along our southern border.

My Daughter said her Latino friends at school are all saying their parents voted for Obama for food stamp money and not for immigration reform.

People voted for free stuff.

Immigration reform can be done, but they would have to get the democrats to wipe out all entitlements for non-citizens and for a period of 10 years.

Watch them howl.

Immigration is not the issue - it is Santa Clause as the mascot of the RAT party. GOP can never ever compete against Santa Clause. AMERICA IS OVER - FINSIHED. You are going to see more and more layoffs as Obamacare hits and we go over the fiscal cliff. The media are eventually going to have a problem hiding it from the sheeple, but they will give it a heck of a try. After all they got their messiah reelected so I give them a lot of credit for their deceitfulness.

***some Republicans are striking a new tone on illegal immigration.***

More worse that! It has been suggested that the GOP reach out by supporting...
Immigration reform,
Abortions
Homo marriage and rights.
In other words, become democRAT-commies.

It is if OBAMA were playing the part of Henry Higgins and sings the song..

“Why can’t the GOP, be more like ME!”

Why Roger Ailes employs hacks like Hannity, Whorealdo, and Juan Williams is a mystery. He must be trying to drive away conservatives and shrink ratings. He’s succeeding in our household.

I’m calling my Rep to tell him to get rid of Boehner. When he said “Obamacare is the law of the land and Republicans will no longer try to repeal it” he was done in my book.

He’s trying to say Obama got some kind of mandate. The real mandate was against Obamacare, 70% of the American people did not want it, millions went to D.C. to protest it yet they totally ignored that mandate, the real will of the people.

Boehner has to go.

Hispanics by and large don’t really care about immigration, they care about more free stuff for themselves and their families (who happen to be illegals). Republicans will never be able to give out more free stuff than Democrats. Pandering to illegals will only hasten the demise of the Republican party.

You can’t change stupid, these idiots are traitors, Hispanics want all of their family and friends here until there is no more opportunity for anyone but them! Affirmative action allowed for the government to declare war on white males, you can no longer get a government job, they are entrenched in human resources, and they hire family and friends, hispanics are so networked it’s beyond scary, I’m sick of minorities and women getting preferential treatment in the work place!

And yet there are people here who think staying with the Republican Party is the best way to move ahead.

The party left us four years ago when it nominated McCain. It doubled down by nominating Romney. Enough is enough.

No, they need to go after the enslaved tax payers. Work to free the tax slaves, and the Republicans will own the country for centuries.

Support and reward those who keep this country running. Stop rewarding the sloth and ignorance. Bring out the people who work their butts off to vote. Give them something to vote FOR.

We don't need to lower ourselves to the democrat base. We need to enlarge our own. If Republicans seriously make it their goal to free the slaves, they'll never have to worry about another election ever again. They have to go big, and they have to go loud! When the tired and overworked hear them, they'll be like bees to honey.

HELLO! What about the slaves who have to pay for all this? Are they not human? If you cut them, do they not bleed ????

Many of the talking heads are just avatars to represent peoples anger...on both sides of the issues...so that when the country continues to go in a direction, we all have fought for our imaginary “team” and our “team leaders” walk us off the plank and try to get us in line.

And for the most part, people get in line.

Most of the screamers like Hannity, Maddow and others...I won’t pretend to know them all, I believe just play a role to give an outlet for passion...so that it eventually peters out.

I’m not explaining it correctly. But we are all viewed, both left and right, like worker bees, and the talking heads are the middle managers who manage feelings.

What an insult to Latinos to think illegal immigration is their primary issue.

You flood this nation with legal immigrants France instead of illegals from Mexicans, legals from Canadian instead of ilegals from El Salvador, we will STILL have the same problem.

Most people come from nations where GOVERNMENT is the primary provider. When you flood this nation with more and more immigrants and do not stir the pot, they will stir out pot to their liking and that’s BIG government.

Entitlements - not Amnestty is what they want.

Apparently. The MSM, which is 80% uber liberal, said this is our only hope. We must become more like......them.
The idiots on the right inside the beltway cocoon seem to be believing their propaganda.

Oh, and we have to pay more attention to woman's crotches, affirmative action, mother earth, and the teachers union. That's the only way we can "win."

30 million new illegal voters who will still vote %70 Dems, that should fix things.

It’s time we stop relying on these so-called conservative radio and talk show hosts to deliver the conservative message. They’ve failed miserably and the message gets distorted through them. Some of them are good, but the majority are just trying to direct the conservative movement with their distorted version of conservatism.

Get active with your local tea party and help them get organized. Start putting together local newsletters, flyers and blogs to bypass the establishment media providing information that details and exposes the spending and voting record of elected officials.

The so-called conservative media can no longer be relied upon.

Yep

but with nearly every legal and illegal Latino immigrant on food stamps, the GOP is missing what happened ... they are associating the wrong cause with the effect.

Hispanics vote for dems because the dems give them free stuff.
If it was true that most of them come here to work then the dems in the unions would be screaming to close the borders.

The same GOPe who mocked the birthers and embraced Romney are now going along with naturalizing more undocumented Democrats. The mocking of the white GOP is anti-white venom and should be called such, instead the GOP leadership is caving in and basically apologizing for being white.

Bohner also said that the Tea Party Caucus doesn't exist.

Boehner MUST go...we need a separate thread on this, to include all the things he's come out for, since the *election*. We can link to the Tea Party Caucus website so we can call these reps and tell them Boehner says they don't exist and that Boehner MUST go!

Here's the Tea Party Caucus link.

Go ahead and try to grant amnesty and alienate the base even further.

This will not work in drawing hispanics to the GOP. Hell, Lincoln freed the slaves and the GOP was instrumental in the passage of the Civil Rights Act and blacks avoid us like the plague.

Idiots.

There is no way republicans or conservatives should reward Latinos and democrats with a immigration reform bill. 70% of Latinos voted for Obama in most areas of the country. If there is an immigration reform deal, Obama will get the credit and that number will rise to 80%. Republicans will be blamed by Harry Reid and others for being too rigid and not making the deal liberal enough. The most important thing in any immigration deal is to first secure the border. Obama will never do that. He might agree to it, but then would double-cross Republicans after it was over. Not only does Obama not want a real fence on the border, he has cancelled the virtual fence. Republicans should never do an immigration deal unless they control the White House. They should stall and prepare a plan for the 2016 GOP candidate to run on. Only a Republican can get immigration reform done based on history.

The California Republican party went in decline after the passage of Proposition 187. Look it up, it wasn’t amnesty. Latinos took it as an attack on themselves, due to their ethnicity, and reacted accordingly.

This already started on the evening of the election: some talking head paid liar from a TV network was saying Romney wasn't elected because of his "extreme" positions. So a Massachusetts RINO is now "extreme".

This whole campaign is directed at demoralizing the GOP base and making sure that conservative positions are socially marginalized.

It is depressing to see Hannity climb on the power-at-any-cost bandwagon.

The only way this will stop is if conservative controlled states and localities simply say "no" and act to boot illegal aliens and punish their employers no matter what the Feds or the Fed courts say.

Make them send in the army on behalf of illegal aliens-- I want to see them try that.

Boehner. When he said “Obamacare is the law of the land and Republicans will no longer try to repeal it” he was done in my book.

He never tried to stop it. The supreme court said it was a tax. Tax bills must come from the house. Obomacare came from the senate. Therefore, it's not law. The Republicans can stop it. They just don't want to.

In Washington, there is only one party. They just play good cop/bad cop to keep us believing there's really a difference. That's why the Republican elite wants the Tea Party destroyed. They're getting in the way. If they get any more power, the deceit might get exposed.

Remember, RINOs are democrats. They just keep the (R) after their names to win elections in the districts. Once they get to Washington, no one pays attention to what they're doing anymore.
