Paul Ryan working behind the scenes to push comprehensive immigration legislation
Washington Post ^ | 7/10/13 | Paul Kane and Ed O’Keefe

Posted on 07/10/2013 4:23:02 PM PDT by jimbo123

Two weeks after the end of his failed vice-presidential bid, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) was already thinking ahead to another big fight: immigration reform. And he was thinking about it in a bipartisan way.

Ryan ran into his old friend, Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez (D-Ill.), and urged him to restart his effort to get a comprehensive immigration package through Congress.

I had such hope for both Ryan and Rubio.

Now, not so much.

It's all about Paul.

He was one of those who pretended to have principles.

He did well grilling the IRS and does well on some other issues but on this one, very poor and very disappointing.

Ryan has always been GOP-e.

His little politeness hides his amnesty push.

Ryan voted FOR TARP. Ryan voted FOR the bailouts of Fannie, Freddie, AIG and GM. Ryan voted FOR capping CEO pay. Ryan voted FOR the disastrous “Plan B” that not even Cantor voted for. Paul Ryan never was Conservative. Paul Ryan never will be Conservative. Paul Ryan was, is and will be a Poser. He got away with it, using Levin, Hannity and all their media access to foist stealth RINOism. Paul Ryan needs to be primaried, and then defeated.

His "principle" involved cutting Medicare while leaving welfare alone. I always thought Ryan was an anti-GOP dirtbag who stuck it to the average GOP voter to pander to his plutocrat donors.

Ryan was interviewed by Mark Liven a few weeks ago and Mark’s dogged questioning and countering on Ryan spewing his talking points to accept the Senate Immigration bill totally exposed Ryan. One could conclude from the interview that Ryan falls in with those in DC who work only to please their masters. Most unfortunate though, that’s always proved to be at the expense of the American people.

I had some for Ryan, never had any for Rubio from the get go.

Now, not so much.

Now, NONE for either.

I am embarrassed to admit that I once pinned a lot of hope on this guy, and on Boehner ... and on G.W. Bush and Cheney. Feels like finding out your husband is a run-around.

All I needed to read. Adios Mr. Ryan. Gutierrez is a traitor, as far as I’m concerned.

Sometimes I wonder if in the general scheme of things, some GOP, Rubio, McCain are making what appears to be a good faith effort at this immigration bill, thus, you have the Utah and Arizona Republican Senators and Rubio too voting for this which are two states in the Southwest.

But behind the scenes, I wonder if it is strategy, an end-run and if this won’t be taken up in the House which it is starting to look like, thank goodness!

Then, on the other side, I don’t know if Rubio would take the risk that he is if this were some sort of back room strategy.

Sure is a hassle though to bring this dadgum thing up every few years.

Now we know why Romney picked Ryan: another bad choice by our “leadership”. I wonder if Ryan is even conservative on right-to-life.

For the record, Rep. Ryan stated in the debate vs. Biden that he, Paul Ryan believed life begins at conception. That was the same time, Biden made use of some sort of Latin phrase, I forget exactly to state, he Joe Biden was personally against abortion but did not want to impose that on others.

F him. F everyone who wants to transform America into Mexico North. F Jeb Bush. F Rubio, but at least he is being true to his race. F the establishment Right.

May the immigration bill die a horrible death and never be resurrected.

NO amount of "border security" will make it OK to add 15 or 20 or 30 million Mestizo invaders to our citizenship roles.

The "comprehensive immigration reform" I want involves mass deportations of the Mexican invaders (and all the visa over-stayers from Asia), harsh chain-gangs for Mexican criminals in the USA, legislative clarification (with no judicial appeal) of the 14th amendment right of birth citizenship and other stuff I'm too busy to come up with right now.

Yet Paul is apparently a supporter of not only our current, too high, mass levels of immigration, but of actually increasing legal immigration.

That is another way of saying he supports increasing the net flow of millions of future Democrats, and making any successful challenge to Roe impossible.

I somewhat remember that; it’s just I wonder if very many of the pro-life politicians really believe in pro-life.

I don’t know but in most everything else, P. Ryan has been disappointing, he’s like Rand Paul imho, just too green, too idealistic and not mature. People say GOP-e. Maybe that’s it.

Now, the Wisconsin Governor, Walker is a different story, a brave man, bold man, religious man and of course, Conservative.

This little punk thinks he is an expert in EVERYTHING including what will happen to America when he pours 40 new Democrats into our midst. He couldn’t carry his own state so I’ll fight to keep him from “carrying” America to Mexico. Please join any effort to expose this fraud.

I think that WE must do something first:

 

 

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, who are called by my name,
shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways; ,

then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

I agree wholeheartedly. Frequently my prayer is that we, as a nation, turn from our wicked ways.
