Cornyn: Immigration Reform Not Out of the Question in 2014
WOIA ^ | 1/13/14 | Jim Forsyth

Posted on 01/13/2014 11:36:45 AM PST by jimbo123

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tx) says he is optimistic that some sort of immigration reform can be considered and possibly approved by Congress this year.

But Cornyn told 1200 WOAI news it won't be the 'comprehensive' type of immigration reform that the White House is demanding.

"Particularly after the failure of Obamacare, the people are very skeptical of thousand page bills," Cornyn said.

He says there is talk among Senate Republicans of a 'bit by bit' approach, which could include an expansion in the visa program for people who attend and graduate from college in the United States.

Issa says 2015, Cornyn and the Chamber of Crony Capitalists say 2014. And they blame the TEA party and conservatives for their problems.

Cornyn is an enemy of conservatives.

Donate to Steve Stockman’s primary campaign to defeat Cornyn, if you care about the country.

It is time for conservatives to start donating. Stop whining and contribute.

“Don’t you understans that a R shoving amnesty down your throat is OK cuZ it’s lesser evil but when the D does it it’s the apocalypse?”

I think many of us are sick unto death of the “lesser evil.”

If we could only get together and do something about it.

I joke that I am going to establish the Curmudgeon Party and run for office on the position, “This is Bullshit.”

I think, though, that the scatology would offend too many of the people that the Curmudgeon Party would hope to attract.

NO excuse whatsoever when they're from Texas and California like Cornyn and Issa, both of whom are FOR "Immigration Reform."

I hope enough of us are sick of lesser evil. The ONLY reason we can’t get out poop together is our own supposed members keep fighting those of us who are sick of lesser evil.

See last primaary for a perfect example played out over months.

But it’s LESSER EVIL! Onyx! We were told right here on FR that we ALWAYS have to give in and go along or we are supporting Obama.

So surely we have to reach across the asile and destroy what remains of America so our friends in the GOPe won’t be mad.

He is; he just doesn’t know it, yet.

There are enough other decent-to-good options. Cornyn will not get a majority in the primary, and lose in a runoff that won’t be all that close.

The Texas tea party types don’t like him and all the conservative groups will support almost anyone but Cornyn.

There's NO “LESSER EVIL” in this so-called “Immigration Reform.”

Vigorous enforcement of the current laws would solve the illegal alien problems, including deportation.

.... but you already KNOW that, too.

Morons. Absolute Morons.

If the Republicans just shut up and went into hiding for the next 11 months, they might actually win the election.

Instead, they are turning a sure thing into guaranteed loss.

If I hear one more Republican mention amnesty or immigration reform, I’m voting Democrat. Might as well put the professional socialists in power rather than the amateur Republican socialists.

Here is my immigration reform. Find an illegal and deport them but first whack off an ear so we can tell what he is when and if he comes back. Okay, I am not really going to d oit but it still feels good to say it. Now whacking off an ear of a Democrat or a country club bcakstabber that is something entirely different.

John - You are against us Texans.

Think Alamo.

Ultimately, we Texans will have our San Jacinto, we promise.

Yup. Now if we can get the rest of ‘conservatism’ to realize that also applies to homo everything, abortion, and even the non social issues we might just have a chance of electing a non liberal instead of more ‘lesser evil.’

“Donate to Steve Stockman’s primary campaign to defeat Cornyn, if you care about the country.

I got online to contribute to Stockman but stopped when it was required of me to fill out a form that included my employer and occupation.

Don’t know why they ask that of people, but I refuse to do it.

Instead, I will send a check via slomail.

Support Dwayne Stovall to oust John Cornyn in TX

John Cornyn claims to be the 2nd most conservative member of the Senate.
Yet, as Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, he
hand-selected these "Republican" candidates:
  • Arlen Specter - Democrat
  • Charlie Crist - Democrat
  • Lincoln Chafee - Democrat
  • Lisa Murkowski - Independent
Also, when he had a chance to stop ObamaCare by supporting Ted Cruz' filibuster
he FAILED
and hid behind a meaningless vote later.


Now, he wants to sell you out with amnesty.

That will anger about half of all conservative talk radio hosts who are firmly in Cornyn’s corner. I won’t say names but have heard many of them supposed Tea Party non-Rino’s in Texas back Cornyn.

Mar. 4, 2014..... 49 days until the Primary vote.

Has anyone seen any activity by Cornyn's opponents such as community meetings,
advertisements, mailings, hand shaking, etc? If so please describe for us.
Thanks.

Job growth is this country isn’t even keeping pace with birth rate and they want to give 20+ million illegals amnesty so American citizens have even more competition for the few job available.

Every politician in Washington save one or two is a flat out traitor....and not just the push on amnesty either.

I've been seeing non-stop ads alleging that Stockman is a crook. They're paid for by some "Texas conservatives" group, but it's obviously the work of Cornhole (who will not get my vote, regardless).

Steve King was the only Republican to vote against H1B visa increases. Steve King is the only Republican courting moderate and white collar voters. Ive seen Steve King on CSPAN and seen Democrats say they dont like him on abortion and calling out Obama’s racism but agree with him on immigration.

NRSC chairman Jerry Moran tried to put an amendment into Harry Reid’s Unemployment benefits bill.
