All the more reason to leave the government shut down; in fact, when he throws down the gauntlet like that, simply announce that all talks are over until the mid-term elections are over next year.

Open borders and an ever expanding Federal Leviathan. So what’s the point in even having a Republican Party? Is it to prune around the edges of the Federal plantation?

OBAMA: “. . .I think it’s really important for the country.”

Yeah, it’s important for the Republic of Mexico.

His opposition is pathetic. And anyone who does oppose him gets maligned by everyone, including, most notably, people who claim to be on the side of the opposition ( ‘conservatives’ and otgerwise opposed to Obama). I cannot believe what I heard from bill Bennett and savage instructing their audience. Bennett said yesterday it was crazy (crazy) to oppose McCain, as he’s on our side

A man who has studied philosophy and debate at the post graduate level instructs ‘in voting, you vote for the most conservative’

This is the learned opposition. He said McCain is 40,70,60 percent right. Can’t find the numbers? But he makes an assertion

I’d like to hear an example of one instance of McCain being right.

They ripped Cruz on the McLaughlin report citing poll numbers

They’re out to discourage. Lots and lots of big money is in play and behind the scenes

Prayer is going to be important.

I suppose Republicans ought to include money for a border fence in the new budget, with NO amnesty until it is completed and we have had seven years with no illegal crossings.

After all, a border fence IS the law.

We have a window of opportunity to do great damage to the amnesty push. While people are in shock over what Obamacare has done to their health costs they will be receptive to discussion of how much more it will soon cost.

If you find yourself in a conversation with someone bemoaning their ObamaCare costs take the opportunity to remind them that those costs will be greatly increased with tens of millions of illegals granted amnesty and added to the rolls of freeloading ObamaCare recipients.

I don't understand why the "inside the Beltway" crowd thinks everything is going great for Obama. Nobody will remember who the speaker of the House was, but they'll remember who the first U.S. "Deadbeat President" was. And then there's Obamacare train wreck; the vast majority of voters haven't even seen any effect from it. Yet. But they will.

"Bush had higher approval rating than Obama at this point in his presidency"

He must be bored or trying to bring his ratings up - an interview w WABC in NY (IIRC) yesterday and Univision.
If they aired during the day the non-47% didn’t see it as we were working. That said, I flip channels when he’s on, so wouldn’t have seen/heard it anyway.

RE :”Obama to push immigration reform ‘day after’ budget deal”

He has to try to do that. Time is running out to get a bill that both houses agree on. Holidays coming fast.

House member Lou Gomert R-Texas was on Kelly File (FNC) last night and she asked him if he understood that the House would probably pass a Senate CR that didnt have anything that House Republicans wanted put in it (no Vitter Amendment ) , after the failure to agree on an alternative house bill last night,

Lou responded that the shutdown put off the House working on immigration reform(volley of bills I assume), as a good thing.

It sure looks like the plan is unfolding. Our spoiled brat president is willing to collapse the country. If he can be stopped by congress I think he will resign and prefer a golf retirement in Hawaii. Biden becomes president, Biden appoints Hillary as VP. Ensuring her viability for 2016. Biden wanted an early taste so he got to vacation at Camp David with all his family.

Bill Bennett led a government agency that many conservatives believe is unconstitutional. While he's got a big conservative reputation, I don't take him seriously when he talks about the big picture.

This is the Big One. It would cement the WORST aspects of O-Care, not to mention everything leftist and criminal. Gun rights? Finished. Legal voting? No more. Drug trafficking, human trafficking, you name it. Entire counties would be balkanized, and it could even spread into entire states. Checkmate.

I wouldn’t even bother posting anymore if this passes. Nor would I display the Flag. Too risky at that point. We would be done, time to lie low and consider spreading freedom to other nations and salting in freedom concepts with subtely the way communist ‘citizens’ have done it.

“Hidden in that stampede will be al Qaeda terrorists and the most brutal criminal syndicate in the Western World.”

Exactly Right. And while the TSA feel up all the women, check grandma for bombs, make wheelchair passengers get up and go through the scanner, terrorists walk across the border unfettered carrying anything they want.

Rand Paul’s immigration speech
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)
Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2998395/posts

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

[but he’s not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]

They need to stop it in committee. Vote down Gowdy’s enforcement bill.

The only good that can come from it is Harry Reid and Obama saying Gowdy’s bill will cause racial profiling. Then Gowdy has to justify why he wants to pass amnesty lite and risk a conference.

Sounds like a plan, to me.

For some reason, Repubs seems hell-bent on passing immigration reform. They are paying attention to big business, aka big money, who want more cheap labor at the taxpayers’ expense (entitlements) and their stupid, stupid consultant buddies.

Republicans have been saying for months they are listening to the people on defunding Obamacare (at least until the soft debt deadline) and Syria. Now they want to turn around and ignore them.

Gowdy, Goodlatte and Lynn Jenkins are members to call. They seem like the only ones who are deluded.

Adelson, Cantor and Boehner weakened themselves by supporting Obama on Syria. They can’t whip the caucus.

It is a waste of time calling Ryan except to annoy his staffers and the inconvenience he has caused them. Maybe be better to inconvenience Rep Aaron Schock’s staffers.

Gowdy and Labrador seem pessimistic about passing amnesty lite.

Ryan and Cantor are a waste of time.

Even in Blake Farenthold’s district It is probably 60 or 70% of voters who turn out will be adult whites. There is a lot of illegals and hispanics too young to vote in his district. His district is half hispanic. Only 20% of ballots cast in Texas are by hispanics. You’d have to look at the district with a microscope to work out what the exact turnout would be. You think a guy with Blake Farenthold’s appearance and birtherism would not be worried about whether the media would attack him or whether La Raza thinks he is mean.

This is a La Raza site with 25 members.
