Any Republican that votes for this bill is an idiot.

I love Sessions and hope he's correct!

That’s a smile I’d like to see in the White House.
I don’t think Jeff caves on his principles.

I've always liked Senator Jeff Sessions a lot. He doesn't have the "fire in the belly" of a Ted Cruz or Mike Lee, but he can fight just as effectively with his southern gentleman style.

Whereas a Cruz or a Lee or a Paul will make a libtard head explode, Sessions will just politely eviscerate them and remove their stuffing.

He is a competent jurist with a keen mind. I believe he was once on the short list as a SCOTUS nominee, but was forced to withdraw when the libtards threatened a filibuster. I'll bet some of them have come to regret it.

Sessions is good at math as well as categorization. We see the problem right here at FR from time to time. Folks will see the national total population demographic data and begin running in circles shouting that the white Republicans are a declining number of people. At the same time they fail to note that not everybody votes! They also fail to note that different populations have different distributions. Some are heavily rural while others are urban. Yet others dominant the suburbs, and others live near the coasts.

All things considered Republicans continue to be highly competitive politically.

Sessions knows that. He understands that each Senator also understands his own state's demographic distribution even if he has no idea what's going on nationally.

Sessions runs out the clock while he's making converts even in enemy lines.

> “The Republican drubbing in November among Latino voters, ...”

Republicans were not drubbed by Latinos because Latinos made up 8.7% of the registered voters of which a little more than half turned out to vote. Even if all Latino voters had turned out they would not have locked in the election for democrats.

> “...the shifting demographics of the American electorate, ...”

A lot of deception has accompanied demographic statistics on latinos.

> “...and the rise of telegenic champions of the immigration changes like Senator Marco Rubio of Florida and Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, both Republicans, have changed the stakes as well as the political equation.”

Rubio and Ryan are GOPe foster children. They are neither telegenic nor are they champions.

Jeff is a good man and very smart. He keeps asking “ What will this immigration bill do for Americans?” No one answers that question. He has the ability to keep it simple. Makes Libs an Rinos crazy.

Why aren't there more senators like Sessions?

He's a man who believes in doing "the right thing" and "what's BEST for America".

There are few in Washington D.C. who have or hold those beliefs.

“His motivation, he said, is simple: Other Republicans are too scared to take the lead, fearing they will be labeled anti-immigrant, intolerant or worse.”

This REALLY ticks me off. If my two RINOs from Tennessee were to show some backbone and join Sessions, they would win an overwhelming majority and to hell with what anyone else was saying.

“Why aren’t there more senators like Sessions?”

Are you serious? This is the same supposed conservative that said this at Eric Holder’s confirmation:

“Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, for example, said he was sure that Mr. Holder would be “a responsible legal officer and not a politician.”

I wonder if Mr. Weisman would appreciate being described as "a swarthy, big-nosed, New York semite"?

IMHO, Republicans are barking up the wrong tree: THERE ARE NO VOTES FOR REPUBLICANS IN THE AMNESTY TREE!

However, there are roughly 100,000,000 votes in the “We didn’t vote in 2012” tree.

One has to wonder why the Republicans panties are in a wad about illegal aliens and not about the “stay at home” voters?

Stay at home voters outnumber illegal alien voters by at least 5 to one (assuming there are 20 million illegals in the USA who want to vote).

Clearly, Republicans are barking up the wrong tree!

Talk about misplaced priorities.
