If you want to know what's wrong with the Republican Party wrapped up in one pretty package, like the head in the box at the end of Seven, all you have to do is look at the latest amnesty disaster that was created by a gang of Republican idiots in the Senate. Marco Rubio, John McCain, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham, Bob Corker, John Hoeven, Kelly Ayotte, Dean Heller and the rest of the braindead Senate Republican buffoons that have supported this bill are the living personification of the words, "Stuck on Stupid." They picked the wrong issue, at the wrong time, did it the wrong way, and set it up so that no matter what happens, the Republican Party is doomed to get kicked in the teeth.
Why does the Republican Party lose elections? Because we do things like this...
1) Most of the Republicans backing the bill in the Senate lied to their base: What is George W. Bush's daddy most remembered for? Being Ronald Reagan's VP? No. Winning the Gulf War? No. Oh, yes, it was breaking his, "Read my lips, no new taxes" pledge. But, is that fair? After all, politicians lie, don't they? So, what makes that one stand out? Well, there's a reason people remember that lie: because Bush gratuitously lied to his base on an issue that deeply mattered to them. It wasn't just a lie; it was a betrayal. Well, guess what? Many of the Republicans in the Senate that have supported the McCain/Rubio amnesty bill are engaging in exactly the same type of betrayal.
"I am not, and I will never support any effort to grant blanket legalization/amnesty to folks who have entered, stayed in this country illegally." -- Marco Rubio
“In the Senate, Kelly’s top immigration priority will be to secure our borders – no excuses. Simultaneously, she will work to ensure that existing immigration laws are enforced and is against amnesty.” -- Kelly Ayotte's website
"I believe it is an amnesty program, a back-door amnesty program for the 12 to 15 million people who are here illegally." -- Dean Heller
