Imagine the leaders of the Democrat Party mocking the party faithful. Try to conjure up the image of Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid running false ads against liberal candidates. Save that thought in your mind because you will never see it in real life. Democrats harness the power of their base to advance the cause of their ideology and party platform. Republican leaders, on the other hand, are at war with their partys platform.
While speaking to a rotary club in his Ohio district, Speaker John Boehner had this to say about conservatives who are concerned about open borders:
Heres the attitude. Ohhhh. Dont make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard, Boehner whined before a luncheon crowd at Browns Run County Club in Madison Township.
We get elected to make choices. We get elected to solve problems and its remarkable to me how many of my colleagues just dont want to. Theyll take the path of least resistance.
Boehner said hes been working for 16 or 17 months trying to push Congress to deal with immigration reform.
Ive had every brick and bat and arrow shot at me over this issue just because I wanted to deal with it. I didnt say it was going to be easy, he said.
Yes, Mr. Boehner. We actually want to solve the immigration problem.
We want to deal with the problem of criminals being let out of jail.
We want to deal with the problem of Obama suspending deportations.
We want to deal with birthright citizenship and other magnets that allow foreigners to violate our sovereignty and take advantage of the welfare state.
We want to make immigration work for the American people, not for your donors.

He most certainly is not my leader.
I loathe this person.
Bonehead’s got some severe emotional (mental?) problems, but as far as that goes, so do Pelosi and Reid. And Juan McCain. Obama is a raging closet homo crippled with severe nacissism, megalomania and delusions of adequacy.
Washington DC is a cuckoo’s nest, Boner just happens to be one of the biggest cuckoos. Have you ever seen a grown man weep as much as John Boehner? This experiment of ours is foundering: The inmates are running the asylum.
I’ll bet he chugged at least three cocktails before opening his traitorous gin-soaked piehole. Put this sumbitch on a breathalyzer and it will overload.
Where in the Constitution does it say his job is to “solve problems?” Isn’t his job to represent the people and uphold the Constitution? Isn’t his job to deal with proposed legislation? What problem is he trying to solve? Seems he is “hell bent” on selling the great freedoms of the greatest nation in the history of the world for personal gain. In my book, that is a pretty awful “job”.
We’ve had a Boehner too long.
It’s a leader only if it’s followed.
I would not follo him on Facebook
“Ive had every brick and bat and arrow shot at me”
That’s the same thing as a brickbat? Or slings and arrows?
The drunken metaphor mixing idiot.
He may cry.
The only urgency for "immigration form" of the type Bonehead is talking about is because more and more Americans are figuring it out and their votes need to be cancelled out by a flood of third world coolies before it reaches critical mass.
The choice that every GOP voter in this loser’s district in Ohio should make is to fire this rat! That should be an extremely easy choice.
I have been saying it for years now. The GOP is not conservative, does not like conservatives, and will not be taken over by conservatives. The Rockefeller bunch has won, hands down. The GOP is dead.
Abandon the corpse. Let it rot.
Rand Paul's immigration speech...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.[Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg]
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.
Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reformLatinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow...
