Despite Democrats asking Obama not to release an immigration plan, he did it over the weekend. Marco Rubio is said to have already called it ‘dead on arrival’. But Rush doesn’t think he released it because he actually wants to fix immigration, but rather to gum up any plan to fix it so he can beat up Republicans with the issue in the 2014 elections.

    What chance is there the democrats win the house in 2014 and keep the senate?

    • maynardb50

      No chance with Karl Rove picking our candidates now the republicans are a shoe-in.

    • abe-froman

      Election Fraud – thats how ….voting multiple times, rigging voting mahines, ballot stuffing, dead people and dogs who vote, bussing of immigrants to vote, bussing of metally ill and downs syndrome to vote, suppressing voter ID thru courts, Black Panthers at voting stations, and tne main stream media biased attacks on the american people

      • GWShrub

        EXACTLY! Out of some 80k voters(?) in a few precincts in Philadelphia there was not a SINGLE VOTE for Romney???? I find that highly unlikely. There was a fox in the henhouse…and until the repubs can fix that, winning an election seems very difficult.

        • 1endtimes2020

          You have just confirmed my suspicions about the inaccuracy of the last election. Republicans better mistrust the people who keep the boxes for counting and the count itself. We need to make sure those that do the counting can be trusted. They need to be investigated for their good morals and ethics, and to stand up for the rules of elections.

          • OneThinDime

            Here’s a good reason for a thorough background check! All Conservatives should register as Dems and sign up to be election judges too.

            • Mary Sieg

              I’m with you….great idea!

              • 1endtimes2020

                Love all those great ideas.

            • 1endtimes2020

              I love it.

          • GWShrub

            Agreed! But I’m a bit concerned about anything happening because it’s been, what, 8 years since the ‘hanging chad’ and nothing has improved? Is ANYONE trying to fix it?

            • 1endtimes2020

              You can bet Obama is trying to avoid this from repeating. It’s another reason to be vigilant at the polls.

        • Mary Sieg

          There were several districts in Ohio also where Romney did not get a single….yes I said “not a single vote”. No way. No way.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Spot on.

      • 1endtimes2020

        The last election was very suspicious. Apparently the voting records were destroyed right after counting.
        The Repulicans need to have their own people at the polls paying close attention to preserving the paper trail records, after they have been watchful of each vote being opened.
        As for electronic voting, I am totally against it. I will never trust the accuracy of the vote count as long as Obama is in power.

        • Mary Sieg

          You are so right there, 1endtimes2020….huge voter fraud. I want identification….picture ID’s to vote. And the absentee votes need to be done differently….only allowed for those in nursing homes and away with the military. Ok, now I know many are going to jump on this comment. I’m just sick to death of the cheating. I’m sure everyone here has seen the black woman on tv who proudly declared that she voted several times…even for other family members. And then she said ,”yes, this is perfectly legal.” Is she in jail yet or has she at least been charged? Bet not.

          • 1endtimes2020

            Don’t be the least concerned about those that may jump on your comment. We’re all sick and tired of their antics, and they won’t work anymore.
            We need to write to the media. When they are overwhelmed they will be concerned about their advertisers. Threaten advertisers who sponsor programs that we won’t buy their products. That will start a conversation between sponsor and media. When that happens, we win.
            That always worked before, when Americans wrote and made phone calls. Especially to advertisers. That’s how we hit the media best, in their pocketbook.
            We should start a blacklist of sponsors on our own, so we can concentrate on a few each week, and overwhelm them with mail.

            • Mary Sieg

              I’m retiring soon,…..have lots of ideas of things I can do….I’ve landed on the editorial page before about controversial issues…..time to do it again.

            • Mary Sieg

              That is a fantastic idea….blacklisting those sponsors. And just like the dems voted many times, many different names…..I’m sending 100 letters…maybe a few from the folks at the cemetary!

              • 1endtimes2020

                Sounds good, Mary

                • Mary Sieg

                  I wouldn’t normally even think of doing something so underhanded…..but it’s time to play the game by “their rules”.

                • 1endtimes2020

                  I understand, Mary. We don’t want to have to resort to that sort of thing, but we might not have a choice, if it is forced on us.
                  That’s why Obama wants to disarm all households, and is willing to spend billions to hire police checks. In the meantime, he believes belief in God has a low shelf life. From Founding Fathers to Obama.
                  “Oh say, does that star spangled banner yet wave, o’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?”
                  We’ll see.

                • Mary Sieg

                  And Obama wants to know where all our guns are so they can be confiscated before they confiscate our food. I read this just a few minutes ago on the Tea Party Network …sponsored by Backyard Liberty. This whole nosedive we are taking is planned by this administration. People are going to freak out when the shelves in the grocery stores are bare, banks closed and transportation at a halt. Then the govt will go into their old “share the wealth” crap and expect those of us who are planning for this to share our food supplies. Without a gun, how are you going to keep the theives away. My great grandparents immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1890 why? The german army would force their way into their house and steal flour, sugar, anything they had. They were brutal. My great grandparents loaded up all they had (great grandma was in a wheelchair) and several children to get away. They had no way to protect themselves.

                • 1endtimes2020

                  I have a German friend who visits Germany every year. He said a person must obtain a prescription to be able to buy a health store supplement.
                  Your comment about your great grandparents tells a lot.

      • LIBERTYUSA

        …just like the 2012 Presidential Elections , there is NO HOPE left for AMERICA accept as in 1776 .”(period)

    • DavidRobertson

      What were the chances that a President could actually do an even worse job than Jimmy Carter, foment class warfare, have his administration inundated with scandals (up to and including a terrorist attack on 9-11 just before the November vote), run up more debt than anyone in history, maintain an unemployment rate that is the highest in decades (even with rigged numbers), have gas cost twice as much, have inflation at the grocery stores, not pass a budget in his entire term, never take responsibility for anything, not work with the opposing side on anything, and still get re-elected?

      Libertarians and liberals are fighting a war right now. Conservatives like me are party-less. Yet, over 50% of Americans still describe themselves as conservative.

      Welcome to the new reality. Up is down and wrong is right. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Republican Party completely imploded between now and the ’14 elections.

  • OneThinDime

    There is virtually no difference between Obama’s and Rubio’s amnesty plans. http://www.hispanicbusiness.com/2013/1/17/immigration_plans_from_rubio_obama_are.htm

    Rubio’s illegal amnesty con job. http://dailycaller.com/2013/02/13/rubios-anti-sotu-dissembles-on-amnesty/

    Rubio’s plan gives amnesty plus all family members out of country can also come here. http://dailycaller.com/2013/02/16/immigration-reform-groups-use-low-key-strategy-against-rubio-amnesty/

    • Mary Sieg

      I don’t like anything I’ve heard so far on immigration. I say we don’t even discuss any of it til that fence is built. Without a really tight (as in impossible to get thru) border security, I’m not talking about what to do with any of them. I realize there is a huge problem. I say deport. I don’t care about the hispanic vote. They are here and in line for entitlements so we aren’t talking about our base anyway. It’s the dems base. Period

      • OneThinDime

        You are correct. This is all about votes and bringing our economy to its knees. The welfare and food stamps people can pick the crops and bring their kids along with them. Reduced gov’t expenditures and increased tax revenues.

        • Mary Sieg

          Yep!

          • Mary Sieg

            If they had to really feed all those children they wouldn’t keep having them. And, I’m not talking abortion. I’m talking birth control or just don’t have sex. I have students who have 5 and 6 kids, never been married….every child has a different baby daddy…and I’m not talking about Black people….I’m talking about irresponsible people. I’m tired of paying for mistakes I didn’t make. Ok, I’m going to go make dinner for my hubby now….need to settle down. ha!

      • 1endtimes2020

        Bring our troops home to protect our borders, and use drones to help them.

        • Mary Sieg

          BINGO and Spot On!! You said it 1endtimes2020. We need to defend the homeland right now. Good use for those drones….and I have a good use for waterboarding too. It’s called “who let those people die in Benghazi”…..then in the water they go.!

  • Guest1776rcp

    but rather to gum up any plan to fix it so he can beat up Republicans with the issue in the 2014 elections.

    Let them! Poll after poll show immigration reform is very low on the list compared to unemployment, economy etc… While democrats are beating Republicans over the head with amnesty – Republicans can counter that is exactly why unemployment is still so high, because democrats are focused on the wrong issues.

    • OneThinDime

      Polls also show the majority of Americans want illegals deported and returned to their home countries.

  • Conservator1

    I agree with Rush; particularly on the motivation for Republicans to support an immigration bill to win the mid-term elections by gaining more votes in the Hispanic community. The problem Republicans had with Hispanics in 2012 election was Mitt Romney’s new views on illegal immigration.

    I’m sure most will recall the vicious assault on Gov. Perry’s stance on helping illegal immigrants to obtain a better education in Texas using their monies. Texas has a large Hispanic community and since this was a state program targeting the needs of their constituents, it was pure evil folly by Mitt. Mitt passed Romneycare in Massachusetts which was a state issue and thus, not a problem for me.

    But the vitriolic attack of a governor helping Hispanics to get a better education was the direct cause for Mitt to get such little support among this important and growing group of Americans.

    • JRD1

      South Florida’s usually loyal conservative voters don’t want any part of Bush moderate. Check out the 2012 election results for yourself. Cubans turned a deaf ear on Jeb and his Waterboy.

      • Conservator1

        I’m in total agreement with your comment. In fact, I have turned a deaf ear to Jeb Bush too. But Cuban Americans did love Ronald Reagan and voted for him overwhelmingly in both elections he ran. Lastly, Bush 41 and 43 destroyed the strength of Reagan’s conservatism as a legitimate alternative to Obama/Democrat’s progressivism.

        • Joengima

          Cuban Americans loved Ronald Reagan because Reagan battled communism which is what many Cuban Americans escaped from Cuba.

          • Conservator1

            That certainly was a major issue that helped Reagan garner a significant margin with Cuban Americans. But he also did well with Latinos; if conservatives actually campaigned hard with the Hispanic community, they would receive far many votes.

            Conservatism has an appeal with many Hispanics, but if you don’t go to their neighborhoods and don’t target them via advertising explaining conservative values, then you will loose that vote like Romney.

            • OneThinDime

              Reagan campaigned on amnesty for illegals which is also why he garnered their votes. Check back a few weeks, Levin did a great segment on the Hispanic votes for Democrats.

              • Conservator1

                Did you support Reagan’s presidential bid in 1986? If not, who did you vote for? While you are correct, history has proven this was one major failure among others that Reagan made. However, he won two landslide elections and I would still vote for him today. In 2016, Republicans need another Reagan.

                • OneThinDime

                  I did not support Reagan’s potus bid in 1986 because of his amnesty desire for illegal aliens. I believe in the Constitution and the Rule of Law, not rewarding people for violating the law because they are Hispanic. The last thing this country needs is another illegal alien amnesty potus in 2016.

                • Mary Sieg

                  Applause…Applause!

    • Mary Sieg

      Mitt lost for the same reason McCain lost…..trying to be too civil…”Oh, I can’t say that…it wouldn’t be gentlemanly.” Bull crap. That’s why I love Sarah! She wanted to hit Obama right between the eyes on his relationships with Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, all of it, but the McCain bunch told her to zip it up. Maybe now she is ready to come out without the gloves and be that mama grizzly we all need. Whoever can talk the talk and walk the walk has my vote. And by God we need to get our base out there to vote. Even if they don’t like Sarah (or whoever is chosen to represent the sane half of the country)…we need to choose the best of 2 evils….good over bad… we can’t keep waiting for Mr. Perfect. He/She doesn’t exist. But Satan the Muslim president has to go!

      • Mary Sieg

        I could have thrown a shoe at the tv when Romney refused to talk about Benghazi at that debate. Gentleman? Stupidman. We could have had him when he had his own watching. That would have been the time to ask all the questions we are trying to get answered now. I’m still angry about that.

        • Mary Sieg

          And who cares that Romney was a Mormon. I’m catholic, but he sure beat having radical Islam in our white house! I would vote for an atheist at this point if he/she respected the constitution. At least atheists don’t believe in the Koran and killing Christians. They just think we are wasting our time praying to our Lord. I pray for atheists. And I pray God will destroy the Muslims….and He will.

          • clevonlittle

            well said…..

      • Conservator1

        Mary, once again you make an assumption; I strongly supported Sarah Palin. In fact, her selection was one of the best moves McCain made in his failed presidential bid. She has a Reaganesque view of conservatism which I admire greatly.

        Steve Schmidt (Operations Chief) and Nicolle Wallace (a senior McCain aide) were the major sources to the MSM attacking Palin during and after the election. When Obama won, MSNBC seem to have them on at least one show a day for a year and that tells you all you need to know about these turncoats. They were willing to see McCain loose the election because he chose Palin over their objections.

        Mary, please don’t act like Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace who are worthless elite moderates.

        • Mary Sieg

          I don’t think my comment was an assumption….I believe it to be a fact. And I don’t like to be compared to Schmidt or Wallace. Sarah Palin is still made fun of…5 years later.

    • OneThinDime

      Good reason not to move to TX. Illegals can go home and fix their own countries.

      • Conservator1

        Okay, don’t move to Texas which is red state that consistently supports conservative candidates. Like Mary Seig’s comment above, you seem willing to ignore how important attracting the Hispanic vote is to the future of conservatism in America. Your comment indicates a very narrow view of the political realities in the U.S.

        • OneThinDime

          Enjoy your sanctuary state. I live in a blue state with sanctuary cities and our annual deficit is almost 100% of the cost of those illegal aliens. Perry is going after CA and NY, HUGE DEM states and if CO moves in to TX it will become as Obama promised, blue by 2016.

          • Conservator1

            I have lived my entire life in New York State and 20 years in NYC. Thus, I know I great deal about living with a big brother nanny state. But I strongly disagree with your reply which is nonsensical to me (I don’t mean to disparage you because I’m certain on 95% of political issues, we most likely agree).

            In addition, I have worked with Rush on a number of projects when I was in publishing. Also, I worked with the father of conservatism in America – Bill Buckley. I proudly worked for his campaign when he ran for Mayor of NYC. And I continue to support the Buckley Rule albeit most Republicans like Carl Rove have misinterpreted this rule. Below are 2 articles I recommend you read:

            Republicans Misunderstand the Buckley Rule – WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2013
            http://libertarian-neocon.blogspot.com/2013/02/republicans-misunderstand-buckley-rule.html

            “…I did not check back every five minutes over the next 50 years to see if Bill had amended his formulation of the Buckley Rule. But in the following year, 1965, he reaffirmed his position by running in New York City as a third-party conservative against a highly electable Republican. I can tell you as the manager of that campaign that there was never a single day, from our first planning meeting in February until the polls closed in November, that Bill considered himself even remotely electable. But viable? Absolutely. He was the best candidate in the country to carry the conservative message into the heart of American liberalism. And for those who needed further reinforcement of the point, five years later Bill’s brother, James, ran for the U.S. Senate as a third-party candidate against a mainstream-Republican incumbent.

            We all understand that it is Karl Rove’s mission to promote the Republican party. It was the mission of Bill Buckley to promote the conservative cause. There should be no confusion between the two.”

        • Mary Sieg

          BUT WHAT PART OF “ILLEGAL” DONT YOU GET, CONSERVATOR!! We have laws that should be followed, or changed…and not by executive order by a dictator Muslim. No other country allows people to just “come on in”. Even Mexico! Their southern border is tight and secure! You get shot for crossing over down there. I’m with OneThinDime….we shouldn’t “support candidates who pander to race or gender”. I stand firm on this. I even edited my above comment after re-reading it. Nope, I stand firm on this.

          • Mary Sieg

            We have always been a country of laws….made of, for and by the people. That is what we must remain.

          • Conservator1

            Mary, where have I stated I support illegal immigration or amnesty for them? – I don’t which I thought I made clear in my first comment. Our disagreement appears to be on the importance of attracting the Hispanic vote and its importance to the future of conservatism in America.

            I will re-post a portion of my reply to OneThinDime:

            “…In addition, I have worked with Rush on a number of projects when I was in publishing. Also, I worked with the father of conservatism in America – Bill Buckley.

            • Mary Sieg

              Agreed…we are likely on the same page with 95%, but I don’t like to think we should dole to a particular race or gender….we need to all just be Americans. I don’t call myself a German-American. I am an American. I get tired of needing to get the black vote, the hispanic vote. How about we go after the American vote. That is the point I am making. It divides us. Thanks for your good comments. It makes this site very interesting and intellectually stimulating as well.

              • Conservator1

                See Mary we do agree. I never refer to myself as an Italian American and when I fill out forms which ask about by ancestry or color, I click the other box and write in American. With regard to demographics of the U.S., I plead guilty. I was a publisher for over 30 years and I majored in science. In science and publishing, demographics always play a key role, especially in biology and physics in which I majored.

    • Mary Sieg

      We have to stop thinking we need to win the hispanic votes. They are not going to vote for us….we don’t just hand out free stuff. I say deport…..and they can leave those children who were born here…..to be adopted by other real American citizens or to grow up in an orphanage. Sorry, only the child can stay. You are here illegally.

      • Conservator1

        Mary, the problem with your view is Hispanics represent the largest growth in America’s population.

        “In a demographic shift touching every corner of the U.S., the Hispanic population grew faster than expected and accounted for more than half of the nation’s growth over the past decade, with the group’s increase driven by births and immigration.

        The Census Bureau—in its first nationwide demographic tally from the 2010 headcount—said Thursday the U.S. Hispanic population surged 43%, rising to 50.5 million in 2010 from 35.3 million in 2000. Latinos now constitute 16% of the nation’s total population of 308.7 million.

        The Census Bureau has estimated that the non-Hispanic white population would drop to 50.8% of the total population by 2040—then drop to 46.3% by 2050. This demographic transformation—Latinos now account for about one in four people under age 18—holds the potential to shift the political dynamics across the country…”

        Latinos Fuel Growth in Decade – March, 2011
        http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704604704576220603247344790.html

        If you and others believe conservative Republicans don’t need to attrack at least 40% of the Hispanic vote, then you ideology will lead to the death of conservatism in America. Lastly you assume I believe/support some form of amensty for illegal immigrants like Sen. Rubio’s proposed legislation, you are mistaken. Rubio’s plan has a fatal flaw. Legal immigrants must pass an oral test The Naturalization Test on English and Civics (U.S. history and government) and additional requirements – clink link below for more information:

        http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=a2ec6811264a3210VgnVCM100000b92ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=a2ec6811264a3210VgnVCM100000b92ca60aRCRD

        If illegal immigrants are given a pass on these requirements, then it becomes an amnesty path to citizenship which I can not support.

        • Mary Sieg

          You make some very good and interesting points….and surely educated me…however, I don’t think the ones here legally..which are a good portion of the statistics you just gave, want illegal immigration either. It’s a hard subject. It just isn’t fair to those waiting in line at the front door to let others in the back door. I will agree that I may be leaning too harshly the other direction. I like part of Rubio’s plan. I also like Rush Limbaughs idea that they cannot vote til they are here legally for 25 years. I also like to give citizenship to those who serve in the military. I would agree on a faster track to citizenship for them. The Civics test….hoorah! I had to take one (and pass it) to go from 8th grade into high school….we should still require that of all students, not just immigrants. Thank you for your enlightenment and good info.

        • OneThinDime

          You might check out the Mark Levin thread on Hispanics and how they vote. Here’s a hint, DEM. I don’t support candidates because they pander to race or gender. Ignoring the laws illegal aliens have violated is amnesty. Illegals must be deported and the countries billed for the tax money spent on them for education, medical costs, etc., including their deportation costs.

          • Conservator1

            That’s the problem – Hispanic’s like a number of other minorities do support the Democratic party’s nominee by significant margins. With the rapidly increasing numbers of Hispanic voters, there will be no future for conservative Republicans if this trend continues. More important, I speaking about the LEGAL American Hispanics who already are citizens.

            I’m certain Mark Levin would agree with me on that point.

      • Mary Sieg

        Maybe then they would stop crossing the border at 8 months pregnant just to get to an American hospital….then give birth to a US citizen! Nice plan….gotta stop it.

  • pmb88

    I wonder how many dems are starting to get sick of O. I heard there were a couple of Dems hoping that O would just stay out of this. I know Rush was talking about this a couple of weeks ago that there may be some discontent growing in the Democratic Party.

    • PhillyCon

      You will never hear of it. Isn’t it odd that there is no criticism ever?

      For those who follow politics, it’s unheard of to have no intra party strife at all. Even Clinton had his congressional detractors. It’s the nature of our government to have friction between the branches. But with Obama, all is happy happy, at least on the outside. I suspect Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi keep a short leash on any free thinkers, err dissenters.

    • Mary Sieg

      Boy we can only hope and pray there are a few dems smart enough to be tired of the Muslim president. We need to start talking to them….every chance we get. Go at it from their own angle….only so many food stamps to go around….can’t be giving it away to people who are not citizens. Let’s try to educate these baffoons….or at least talk their language. We need to upset his base right now while they may be disgruntled at their messiah. Can’t hurt!

    Good analysis by Rush.

    Isn’t it frightening that the GOPe just cannot see this? Isn’t it scary how they play right into the POS’ hands? What is the matter with those people?

      You can put this down to lack of Republican leadership. We have RINOS leading! They are worse then useless! God, I wish we could have a New Maggie! ;-) I thought Palin was our New Hope!!! Seriously! But she bowed out… Where was her conviction? :-( NO true leader quits when the battle gets tough! When the going gets tough, the tough get going! Right?

      Anyway… We’re left with idiots for leadership in the GOP! The talk is of a new party! Unless the GOP wake the heck up and quick! Well… You know the rest…

      • colliemum

        I think Sarah Palin was told by the GOPe that she would be on her own, with no support, financial or otherwise, if she ran, even if she got the nomination. You know how they withdrew support from Michele Bachman and how difficult her race was, just for Congress.
        Also, Sarah Palin was fully aware that the GOPe would get at any who’d sponsor her, and she knew about the despicable fillum about her, which came out in March last year, about her 2008 campaign.

        She is a fighter, and she knows that a fighter can retreat and reload when the tables are fully stacked against her, and that sometimes it is better to wait so that one can fight to win. fighting just for fighting’s sake is unwise, and unwise she is definitely not.

        Btw – she’s giving a speech at CPAC, so she is building for something, that’s for sure.

            Yes – I know, that’s what it was like here under Labour.
            And then we only had the choice between that Gordon Brown, and that Dave Cameron. We knew Cameron was good at making speeches in the House, we knew he was not good at doing what he said he’d do.
            Well, we’re in the merde, only worse – and no heroes anywhere.

            Looks like we’ve gotta be our own heroes.

          I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Sarah, either. When she withdrew as a Fox News contributor I got suspicious. Many don’t like her, but I do. She speaks the truth and knows how to take the gloves off! We need someone who knows how to “throw a punch” if we’re ever going to get the white house back. And all of us good folks who want change need to talk to every liberal idiot we know to try to educate them. Maybe Obama will finally even piss his base off and they will wake up. I’m going at it with the “only so much in the sugar bowl and if sugar daddy gives it all away to illegals there won’t be as much for you poor folks who are entitled to it!”. They start listening when they think someone has their hand in THEIR pocket….although it’s been ok now for years for them to have their hand in mine.

      I ask myself this daily. I have been in DC in the trenches many times and I think it is because they lunch together, dine together, do the cocktail circuit, etc. They think these people are my friends and never ever suspect ulterior motives. None of them say their inflammatory rhetoric to anyone’s face…that rarely is done and when it it you usually gt an “Eff You So and So!” and it is headline news. All rhetoric is second hand form various sources or the media so it is easily dismissed.

      Remember when Orin Hatch sang Ted Kennedy’s praises?! Called him friend…well that wasn’t for nothing and really is par for the course. Only in Washington DC can sharks hide their fins so well.

      I could expand this but I think you get the gist of it.

      • colliemum

        Thanks – yes, I do!

        That’s why D.C. is such a swamp, that’s why it is a game to all of them, totally unrelated to the reality which all the rest of the country has to deal with.

        We’ve got the same set-up here. For example, everybody who worked in Westminster, especially the lobby journalists, knew that the Parliamentarians used their expenses accounts for fraudulent enrichment. Nobody said a word, they might not have got invited to a party!

        When it came out, and when one newspaper printed the whole unsavoury story, everybody had egg on their faces, Labour especially.

        Now?
        Might as well not have happened.

        That’s why we call the whole shebang and all who ‘live’ in it – “Westminster Bubble”.

        Yes….the good ole boys stuff. That’s why we need term limits. People like some of us should be going to DC. They stay so long they become buddies. Bulls–t!

    Obama continually wants to hide behind the green curtain… he continues to be the skeleton in the closet.

    He is the biggest dirt bag, politician in the history of this country.

    • Mary Sieg

      The modern day “wizard of Oz”. We need to pull that curtain away and expose Barry the pot smoker, Barry the cocaine user, Barry the stoner, Barry the Muslim, Barry the community organizer. We need a candidate who can do what should have been done in ’08! It’s still not too late to talk about Ayers, Wright, his muslim faith, etc. Nothing is off limits when it comes to Sarah or Michelle Bachman! Take the gloves off for Gods sake!

    Republicans repeat after me…”Democrats are not your friend.”

    Repeat over and over until you get it.

    • http://tinyurl.com/wwsotu Wolfie

      I agree! Democrats are Republicans “friends” in the same way that guy with the panel van with the side spray painted with the “free puppies” message is for innocent children!

  • Wigglesworth

    I don’t agree with that assessment. Obama leaked his own plan to make the gang of eight bill seem more reasonable and bipartisan. This will put the pressure on Boehner to pass it in the House even though he won’t have the support of 50% of the GOP members. It also creates a sense of inevitability. You can either get Obama’s more extreme plan by executive order or vote for the Senate’s version.

    I would be so happy if Republicans kill amnesty in the House, but I would like for them to pass a GOP version of REAL immigration reform that includes state empowerment, mandatory enforcement provisions and a limited migrant worker visa that would require company sponsorship. They have to be able to fight back against left wing cries of racism.

      Impeachment bills have been introduced. If he passes illegal alien amnesty by fiat the lawsuits by Americans will be filed the next day.

      Plus, Rubio’s Gang of 8 amnesty is no different!

    Could we (taxpayers) be funding terrorism (aka jihad) in our very own country, by paying benefits to poorly-qualified unemployed immigrants (Islamic operatives)???

    Could Al Queda/Hezbollah/Hamas members be living on YOUR money???

    Yep.

    “Anjem Choudary was secretly filmed mocking non-Muslims for working in 9-5 jobs their whole lives, and told followers that some revered Islamic figures had only ever worked one or two days a year.

    “The rest of the year they were busy with jihad [holy war] and things like that,” he said. “People will say, ‘Ah, but you are not working’.

    “But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar [non-believers].”

    And it’s not like the US is doing anything about immigrants coming to this country just to live off the American worker.

    Recent studies show welfare spending on immigrant-headed households is relatively high. A Center for Immigration Studies report found that 36 percent of these households were using “at least one major welfare program” in 2010 — compared with 23 percent of other households.

    Sessions’ office says the number of non-citizens on food stamps has skyrocketed in recent years. And the conservative Heritage Foundation claims low-skill immigrant households take in roughly $20,000 more in taxes. http://proteinwisdom.com/?p=47430

    I still think he leaked it to apply pressure on the GOP. Whenever pressure is applied…they start making mistakes. This reform is going to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Not only will it insure Democratic control….but it will wreck havoc on this economy. We have so many problems as it is that this will just hasten our demise. Our economy had until right around the next corner before a collapse but if this becomes reality…we won’t make it to the end of the street. Prepare people….we will finally get to see how Grandma and Grandpa (for the younger folks make that great-Grandma) made out during the depression.
