4. The last time we had Republicans in control of everything...

 

We got 9/11

We got Afghanistan war and Iraq war

We got worldwide recession and millions of jobs lost, millions of people lost their homes


Welcome back, Obama can only do so much, with all those crazy Republicans in Congress now...

If we have another recession, another housing and jobs crisis, another few million people kicked of food stamps and schools failing to educate or even feed their students, we know who to blame.

We should have had a much bigger G O T V effort in 2014, we should have tried to top the 2008 vote total, but so many people just didn't pay any attention to idiots like now Senator-elect Earnst from Iowa. I didn't believe Iowans could be THAT dumb, but I guess the moderates and progressives there were just too lazy to go to vote.

6. They don't need to grow their party if they pass laws and conudct business in a way

that shrinks the opposition. Disillusionment and disenfranchisement workin' wonders for them.

7. Of course they will go with plan B. They just won the last election using those tactics

so that will encourage them to continue. In fact I predict that they will double down on it. The only way to completely stop them is for Democrats to start winning midterm elections. Just winning presidential elections is not enough.

8. Not even Boehner is dumb enough to think this would grow the party.

 

Republicans have historically been so anti-immigrant that I can't imagine anyone here illegally already or planning on coming here illegally would choose to side with them. They're bigots, all right, but they'd be dumber than we already think they are to assume that a sudden about-face on the issue would attract new voters. What reason could an immigrant possibly have to vote for them?

9. "I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you"

 

Much like that old joke about 2 guys camping and they run into a bear, and the one guy starts running, his buddy calls out that he can't possibly outrun the bear, and his buddy calls back to him "I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you"

I think this fits in perfectly here. The republicans don't need to grow the party if they can keep their already existing narrow minded majority intact, and just obstruct the country from growing any other demographic that doesn't match the one they find useful... i.e. they don't have to outrun the bear (grow the party), they just have to outrun their buddy (keep Democrat numbers from potentially growing).

Major Networks Not Airing Obama's Immigration Speech

Just reported @CNN TV: ABC, NBC, CBS won't be airing Obama's prime time immigration speech Thurs. But @JakeTapper notes that Univision WILL.

13. The BASE will settle for nothing less than a roundup of ALL "Mexicans"...

 

I have been in an SUV with one of these people. They sit at a light watching the people in the cars turning left in front of them and fume over how many non-white people there are in THEIR country.

15. Love the picture. Lack of an Immigration bill passed by the GOP

will be there big defeat in 2016. This is a big loser for them. But for the GOP its all about Obama, they care less about passing any bills.

"Speaker Boehner, you have two options."

Thank you, EarlG

18. It's voters, not people

The Republicans only care about voters, not people in general. As the saying goes, "You get the government you deserve".

24. Viewing the video about president Obama

Is the design for the next two years being the struggle for political Power that defines the next Millennium.

Increasing this debate about immigration will be a defining factor in the next election. Soy un gran admirador de su obra, that is, I am a great admirer of his work, that is if President Obama is really doing this on his own and will battle the Republican Party it should be spectacular.

From my view at least three Congressional bills could very well make it through both the Congress and the Senate to verify those that are loyal political persons to the one percent. Especially flushing out the real values of the current Supreme Court that is Constitutionally Antithetical in support of we the people.

The same ethos, that inner product that Calculus projecting the integrity, vision, humanity that can ascend in as a product in a fair culture that matures as a world leader.

Best of all recorded as no other time in history through the Internet.

Importantly, revealing the very harsh fact mainstream media in America is not working for everyone in society, mainstream media is the one percent with deception, bait and switch, and outright political lies to profiteer.

Greatly influenced by the foreign diversity America is taking a stand to embrace. A very interesting timeÖa dilemma for both parties.
