House Speaker John Boehner declined to speak about forthcoming immigration principles at a press conference Tuesday, even as top party officials have in past days said it would include legal status for millions of illegal immigrants.
Boehner said the matter would first need to be discussed with the House Republican conference before the GOP's direction was decided.
At a closed-door meeting just before the press conference, GOP leadership only briefly touched on the issue to tell rank-and-file members it would be discussed at the upcoming retreat in Maryland, a GOP source said.

That coward should release the “principles” in advance of their Amnesty conference on Thursday. What’s he afraid of?

His tear ducts are dry and he needs them to recharge before he can whine anymore.
The GOPe have taken themselves hostage:

Hmmm. Maybe the Jeff Sessions, (R-ALA) huddle with HOR members has something to do with shutting Boehner up on amnesty, for at least one news cycle.

I don't know what to think Investors daily said that staff members of Republican congressmen are telling them that this is just dressing and they wont do anything until they have an upper hand over the Dem's. At least I can take comfort with that. On the other hand it may not be a bluff to keep from taking grief from donors and Mexicans. You had better hope for the best and prepare for the worst. In short call your congressmen and complain about amnesty loud and clear. Don't let them off the hook. We will shortly find out what Boehner is made of.

Well at least Boehner's Washington office makes use of recycled materials...

He should be done talking about or bringing it to the floor.

Gotta keep the lid on until it’s after filing dates for the TEA Party challengers who will want the seats of any RINOs who go along with Bonehead.

Close. There’s no tears, and a hick-up once in a while would help...

Oh YES, Mr. Obama, since the country isn't going down the crapper fast enough, let us help you add 11 to 20 MILLION new DemonRAT voters to the rolls. Thank you, sir, may we have another?
