Skip to comments.Pelosi: Republicans need immigration reform to win presidency again (I'll have a double-layered...)

Republicans will have to pass immigration reform if they want to ever win another presidential race, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday.

Make-believe "Republican" Marco Rubio and the rest of the amnesty set argue hysterically that the pressure on the Republican-run House to cave on amnesty is now "overwhelming" because amnesty was passed by the Democrat-run Senate. We shall overcome: Senate Democrats demand House Republicans commit suicide, or else they're really, really dead!
According to this brilliantly irresistible logic, your typical Tea Party Congressman who ran on a no-amnesty platform should now cave because a massive, colossal, humongous and overwhelming 14 Republican senators voted for amnesty, whereas only a teensy-weensy 32 Republican senators voted against. All Democrats in the Senate voted for Rubio's amnesty bill, officially titled, The Mexican Voting Rights Act of 2013.
Or, to put it more delicately, 14 Republicans joined all 54 Democrats to serve Republicans for dinner. (Rubio immediately hailed the vote as finally bringing Senate cannibals out of the shadows.)
(Say, since no senator actually read the roughly 1,200-page bill before passing it, how about literacy tests for U.S. senators from now on?)
The list of Senate Republicans voting in favor of Rubio's amnesty bill, which combines promises of enhanced border security with promises of enhanced border security, included such impressive luminaries of the 'conservative' movement as John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mark Kirk, Susan Collins and, of course, Marco Rubio (which translated means "Judas Iscariot").
And if that didn't impress you, Lisa Murkowski also voted for it!
After Thursday's vote, Obama took time out from his tireless hunt in Africa for the real killers of Benghazi to call the Gang of Eighters to thank them for passing the biggest must-pass-in-order-to-see-the-itsy-bitsy-spiders-crawling-inside-the-comprehensive crap sandwich since the last comprehensive crap sandwich, Obamacare. According to news reports, Obama spoke to Chuck Schumer but oddly was unable to reach Schumer's mistress, Marco Rubio.
Obama reportedly then calls House Speaker John Boehner to demand action on the basis of what Harry Reid's Senate did, the action-demanding based on the notion that Rubio's pork-laden amnesty scam is now this unstoppable juggernaut, which I suppose makes sense if you're as math challenged as Obama and 14 Senate Republicans:
-- "Comprehensive Immigration reform" routinely ranks last or close to the bottom on the list of issues Americans have the hots for, likely because Americans sense "Immigration reform" is to "reform" what Nancy Pelosi is to mental health;
-- Hispanics comprised no more than 8.4 percent of the electorate in the 2012 election;
-- Even if 70 percent of Hispanics had rushed to the polls to vote for Romney last November they'd still end up with four more years of Obama; for some astonishing reason, political experts in D.C. find this astonishing;
-- When a Republican administration last passed amnesty in 1986, Hispanic voters kindly rewarded Republicans in the next presidential election by flocking to Democrats in even greater numbers; 14 Senate Republicans are convinced the fix for this is to pass an even bigger amnesty;
-- Legalizing 11 million lawbreakers -- in other words, increasing the Democrat voter rolls -- via amnesty is oddly not a winning strategy for Republicans; mysteriously, the same goes for taking political advice from Schumer, Pelosi, Reid and their household help;
The jobless rate is 7.6 percent, the long term unemployed total 4.4 million, wages are falling, lousy economy, jobless recovery -- yeah, let's flood the market with cheap foreign labor.
On the Sunday shows, altruistic Democrats again were tenderly worried about the GOP's future and warned that if House Republicans block this amnesty giveaway to foreigners, they're finished! Kaput. It would show Republicans dangerously out of touch with Chuck Schumer. Passing amnesty for people who aren't supposed to be here is "certainly right for the Republicans if they ever want to win a presidential race," asserted preeminent expert of Republican politics, Nancy Pelosi, on one of the Sunday shows.
In the end, the 68 votes the comprehensive-son-of-amnesty-2006 got in the Senate fell short of the comprehensive 70 votes the amnesiac amnesty pushers claimed just before the vote as the threshold of unstoppable status, which after the vote got quietly lowered a coupla notches. "I believe by the end of this year, the House will pass the Senate bill," predicted the Prophet Schumer on another Sunday show. Given this, the appropriate response is to make sure the 'unstoppable juggernaut' Senate bill is accorded all the respect it deserves by breaking out the shovels and giving it a proper burial in the House. This also means NO ACTION on "immigration reform" needed in the House because if you think the border security and E-Verify measures the House ships to conference won't return as full America-goes-banana-Republic amnesty, I've got a double-layered, 1,930-mile border fence to sell you.
My Two Cents...
Monday-morning ping! Have a great 4th of July week!
But anyone who ever made it thru school yard politics in grade school knows that.
Yet many GOPers continue to follow the advice of Republican-saboteur-in-chief Karl Rove.
i love repubs who believe nice, sweet advice from their friends across the aisle. /everything sarc
the gop-e is in n it. rinos are in on it. libtards are just projecting like normal.
Only chance to stop the Amnesty bill is for the House not to consider any immigration related bill at all.
Michelle Bachman explained it. ANY House bill no matter if it promises all the border security in the world will be a trojan horse.NO bill at all must come out of the House because it will be merged with the Senate Amnesty and trojan horse bill. Call congress.
Tell them to stop all Amnesty or immigration bills.they are all trojan horse bills. some will promise border security that will never be enforced anyway.
Bachmann explained it . The House will write a border security bill only . then in conference the senate will add the virus and then bring it back to the house. then the conservatives wont vote for it but democrats will all vote for it so then they only need 10% of republicans to pass Amnesty and the virus that will destroy America. so any bill at all will be added the virus . so best thing is for Boner to not let any immigration bill at all come out of the House. that is the only hope . call boner and the members of the House.
Tom Tancredo echos what Michelle Bachmann said.
call congress . no bill at all from the House
Love it when DemocRats tell Republicans what they have to do to win elections.
I’d love to tell Dumocraps to stick their faces in a blender to win the next election but that’s just me...
Republicans need working people to finally get fed up with the democratic party’s BS.
Full onset of dementia for the b-tch.
And you know that this bitch has the best interests of the pubbie party at heart.
Thank you Nancy,I know you have the best interests of the Republican party in your heart.
Yes, we should always turn to Nancy for sound advice. /sarcasm
How is this different from satan who lied to the SON OF GOD in the wilderness? Hint... it does not differ at all.
Hi John! Long time no chat. Excellent job sir. Almost (note word is not commitment variety) wanted me to brush up on my Finest HTML skills for appropriate borders And graphics to showcase you fine work
Nice to see it and you. Are you on Facebook? PM details if yes
We can see who Mccain, Grahmansety and Rubio get their advice from. I am sure Pelosi is really worried that the GOP wont win the WH.
Dems are predicting that Bohner cant get a GOP bill through the House so he just puts Reids (Rubios) bill up for a vote and passes that with mostly Dem votes.
Where is Rubio?
See : #18
Don’t take her words lightly. Every time this shrew utters something sane people dismiss as ridiculous, it ends up becoming reality.
