Do you really think amnesty is a big hit in Kentucky.....much less rural Kentucky.....
Someone must be up for reelection.
Boehner is still a RINO. Primary him.
I’ve never heard of them descending this late in life. I’ll watch and see what happens. When is his primary?
Boehner was testing the wind with his finger. When the polls showed that the popularity gap between the Democratic and Republican parties had closed, he understood it was time to go in for the kill. Timing is everything in politics.
I doubt it, but here’s to small miracles.
He’s not serious. As someone said upthread, “Football, Charlie Brown, Lucy.”
A VICTORY FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE !!! .... OVER those international leftist infidels!
victory .... death to the death-to=America crowd
That’s what annoys me about Rand Paul. It is one thing to be quiet like Enzi and vote no. But Paul was trying to rescue amnesty almost certainly against the wishes of his state.
I dont think amnesty is popular amongst the largely non Hispanic voters of Ohio.
Boehner wants to be able to play golf in peace on any course in the Midwest. He won’t be able to if he orchestrates amnesty.
After all the broken promises Obama made about Obamacare.No very many folks will be supporting Obama .His lies and broken promise after promise is catching up with him.Dem’s up for re-election appear to want to stay far away from Obama as well after he burned them.It’s clear anything Obama promises will not actually happen how Obama promises it will happen.
Rand Pauls immigration speech[but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)

...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.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent 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.
Real health care reform would be to repeal every federal law having anything to do with health care. Leave it to the several States.
The winningest message right now would be "vote for us and we will only repeal laws, we won't make any new laws".
That’s a relief. I was concerned.
I wouldn’t say we’re out of the woods yet, look out for the GOP diet version next year.
Back in August when perdogg predicted that time would run out without a house immi bill I was convinced too and as time when on it was more and more obvious to me that they wouldnt pass any amnesty, especially when the government shut down.
but in that time I got lots of scary warnings in pings about secret diabolical plots that would pull a wabbit out of a hat, but I remained unconvinced.
Tough talk. When does the caving start?
Sandy Hook, Boston Bombing, Syria gassing, shutdown and rollout took months away from amnesty.
Also the gang of 8 are the most horrible and stupid Senators around. Rubio was never going to be a frontrunner anyway so the poll numbers were great for the anti-amnesty crowd.
You have Flake and Juan spending the last 3 years promising Arizona they wouldnt pull this BS. You had Rubio caught on tape past and present. Lindsey Graham getting a primary opponent each month.
The Democrat Senators were all far left and said border security was not stopping amnesty.
Even Krispy said he doesnt know about Citizenship. Once you admit these people are Democrats you are not hispandering enough.
Lou Gohmert took down idiot McCain.
Maybe we’ll see what happens...
