Why the Republican House doesn't have an immigration plan, I'll never know. If there were any leadership there, they'd have the alternative up and ready to go, but Boehner just isn't up to the task. The truth be told, Obama can't do what's necessary to deal with the immigration problem, only Congress can. The Republicans should be saying this every single day to Hispanics that they shouldn't go down the Obama road because, just like everything else the Democrats do, it doesn't lead to a solution and will probably exacerbate the problem. The first thing Boehner should do is bring in Rep. Luis Gutierrez and tell him, if he doesn't support Obama's amnesty plan, he will have a seat at the table, writing the House Immigration law. I don't believe Boehner is that smart, but that should be what he's doing right now.

It's not whether your son or daughter registered as a Democrat, or vice-versa, but it's how they approach politics. All of my girls vote Democrat, however, the University professor and her husband (especially her husband) get much of their information from liberal sources, they're surrounded by liberals, and seldom hear a discouraging word about their political thinking. So, if I express some disagreement with them, sooner or later the husband turns into the Democrat Underground and comes out with the ad hominems and the personal attacks. With the others, we can agree to disagree, with my son-in-law, it becomes a war that has to be won. So, it's not the politics it's the approach to politics. The rabid liberals believe in the cause, to the point that, if they don't win, they feel they've let the world down, which is why they have no problem with illegals voting, as long as they support them. The joke going around now is, if you want voter i.d. laws, just get illegals voting Republican and the Democrats will be all over it.
Yes, but don't expect it to work the way it does for the Libs. They will treat any conservative woman's magazine just like they have Fox News. They will go after it, discredit any articles in it, and try to make sure no one wants to claim they read it. They've successfully done this to Fox News and the Tea Party and I fully expect the same would happen to a conservative woman's magazine. Now, if they know what's going to happen, they can plan for it and do some things, but I doubt they'll be ready for the vitriol that would accompany the announcement.
I never ceased to be amazed and how easily this administration lies to the American people. It's from top to bottom and everywhere in between. It almost makes you wonder if one of the interview questions might be: "Are you willing to lie to make sure this President accomplishes his mission?". When you have people this zealous, who are willing to compromise ethics for the cause, you really have to wonder how far this went. I'm reminded at how surprised Republicans were when Romney lost because all their polling was wrong, when you see zealots like this, you really have to question how wrong the polling was. How far did this stretch and who is going to expose it?
I disagree on one thing, one party has done things for both Hispanic and black people, the Republican Party and the Democrats try to make it all look like racism. Affirmative Action, Richard Nixon. EEOC, once again Richard Nixon. I'll grant you that both go way beyond the scope Nixon envisioned, but his thought process was to actually deal with the problem. Democrats are all talk. They don't have to DO a thing when they get this percentage of the vote and Republicans don't offer any more because, no matter what they do it isn't right. I don't blame Democrats and I don't blame Republicans, I blame black leadership for allowing themselves to get into this position. #1 on my list is Julian Bond who, as leader of the NAACP, did nothing to bring the Republicans into the equation. In fact, Bond was one of the race baiters all the time, joining Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton in that category. Until black people recognize real leadership, they'll remain handcuffed to the Democrats. Sorry for them but don't believe I can do anything about it.
Can anyone tell me why this isn't a national scandal? If this were Bush or any other Republican the vacant media would have it on the front page and lead story. I'm really sick of the lying progressives and their media wing. Where are the Republicans? Why aren't they hammering Levin and Cummings every single day? You have to know, if the shoe were reversed, the it was Cruz and Issa the Democrats would be out there every day, on every outlet, hammering them.

As long as black people fall for this ploy by the Democrats they will always be beholden to them for any advances they make. The people who disturb me the most are the black leaders. They have thrown all their eggs in the Democrats basket and, despite the fact they've gotten little in return, they keep doing it. That can only mean they've got theirs so the heck with all those other black folk.
It's no wonder Joe Klein and Jeff Greenfield say the only reliable news on at 6:00 o'clock is Fox New with Bret Baer. I wonder if the MSM is willing to squander, what little credibility they have left, on this turkey. TO me, there are 2 things that are really important. One, the Administration has never corrected the record on this. Secondly, the Democrats have circled the wagons. Do you really want to be seen circling the wagons when the record hasn't been corrected, an American Ambassador has been murdered, and 3 others killed along with him? Do you really want to be seen protecting an administration that everyone in the country knows has lied, and you've had the death of a U.S. Ambassador, the first in 35 years?
The fact is, first he said that which allowed the Democrats and the press to talk about the Republicans doing everything they can to destroy the Obama Presidency. Secondly, and more important, Obama is a 2 term President so how did that work for him. After the Republicans took back the House, in 2010, what did McConnell do? Between him and Boehner, they accomplished very little.
The fact is that, neither Boehner nor McConnell, are leaders. If they were, they would have been able to work together on the government shutdown, he could have forced Reid to bring bills to the floor, and he would have fought harder to get budgets out of the Senate. Many of the bills you point out he voted for, didn't become law. It's pretty easy to say you were for something that had to effect on people's lives. The House and the Senate need new leadership so, even if McConnell is re-elected, I hope the Republicans safe smart enough to get someone like Mike Lee to become the majority leader.
