Five ways GOP leadership fights to lose House, forfeit Senate with immigration reform

The good news is that Republicans are well-positioned to hold the House and take the Senate, and all they have to do is avoid taking affirmative measures to screw things up. The favorable political climate springs from the fact that some of us fought, beginning in February-March, 2009, to kill the “bipartisan deal” on health care that was supposedly going to save the Republican Party from extinction.

You’re welcome.

As a result of this, it would take a blithering cretin to derail the GOP’s good fortune arising from the natural course of events.

Enter Speaker John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio).

If Boehner’s purpose in putting an Obama-like immigration plan on the table as “the Republican position” was to get “doggie treats” from President Barack Obama, The Washington Post, pro-amnesty groups, and virtually every liberal in town, then, congrats!

Boehner, who, a few short months ago, was being vilified as Satan incarnate, is now every liberal’s favorite Republican. Goooood boy!

If, on the other hand, Boehner has the least little bit of interest in keeping the speakership in GOP hands in 2015, then, well, not so much.

Here are five reasons why moving amnesty forward will keep Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) in power — and could even achieve the virtually impossible task of losing GOP control of the House:

Boehner is breaking his neck trying to ensure he loses both House and Senate to the Dems.

Let's hope he hears from Americans about this.

At the risk of boring folks who’ve seen this post before, I must repeat because it’s twue, it’s twue. Apologies to the Python group...they didn’t know they had completely described the modern GOP.

“The GOP is no more! It has ceased to be! Its expired and gone to meet its maker! Its stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! Its metabolic processes are now ‘istory! Its off the twig! Its kicked the bucket, its shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARTY!!”

It would be a dream come true for him to be successfully primaried.

"Boehner is breaking his neck trying to ensure he loses both House and Senate to the Dems."

The best hope is that Boehner gets so drunk one day that he falls down and breaks his neck. He is a certifiable menace ... or working for the Democrats.

He has already created massive damage with these “immigration principles.” The Dems will use it against the Reps in the midterms asking each Rep candidate whether they agree with them—point by point—or not. Boehner has made immigration an issue for the midterms whether any bill is passed or not.

Until the Republican caucus removes Boehner as speaker, which they could do at any time, I can only conclude that the party is not serious about upholding conservative ideas and stopping the Rat destruction of the country.
