Today Republican Senators will vote to implode the party
That’s what today’s vote on the Corker amended immigration bill is about.
The Senate bill cannot pass the House, there’s been no public debate and consensus within the Republican Party on the key issues of legalization and citizenship for law-breakers, and most if not all of the Senators have not read the bill.
With each day more and more loopholes and mischief are uncovered.
So why are Republican Senators pushing it? To give Democrats a political baseball bat with which to demagogue Republicans everywhere?
Are the Republican Senators so afraid that they will be called names by Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid and Barack Obama that they prefer to pass the buck to others hoping to spare themselves?
That will not work.
I agree with the former Marco Rubio, the one whose candidacy was launched with the help of Tea Party bloggers and the Not One Red Cent movement.
The former Marco Rubio saw “earned path to citizenship” for what it was:
This charade and capitulation from cowardice will serve only to tear the Republican Party apart without winning any friends anywhere.
As far as I’m concerned, any Republican Senator who votes for this monstrosity should be a former Senator. Not One Red Cent for them.

As Rubio ascends as the 8's leader, there's unrest among some of his 2010 supporters on the right. @J_Strong reports: http://t.co/jhj6dvfR9Z

“… any Republican Senator who votes for this monstrosity should be a former Senator. Not One Red Cent for them.” I have made this know to my Senator, Richard Burr, NC, numerous times and I think he will in fact vote for this POS. My support for him is done. We need to support not only those good candidates in our own states, but also those in other states who don’t march lock-step with these Democrats who call themselves Republicans. The charade is over.
gasper it’s very hard to tell when they Lie like a dog .As Marco did . He got my vote bye Lying . Shamed me pretty bad . Ted Cruz he ain’t !!
Abosolutely, this is one gets scored as a giant unforced error…
Separated by Evolving Ideology: Marco Rubio goes to Washington… A heart warming Frank Capra story this is not…more of a Anakin Skywalker tragedy.
Corker and Alexander, my U.S. Senators. Alexander cosponsored Corker-Hoeven. Feh!
Wherever they are…whoever they are…we need to work hard to replace any moron who votes for this steaming pile.
Time for a TEA Party revolution!
Have often thought (yeah yeah) of nationalizing the vote, for our 535 politburo member. Unfortunately, a very complicated process and with the BOZO’s scribing such..Pfflltt!
That would be a terrible idea.
BUT nothing prevents us from being effective actors in every race in the country.
The Senate under Reid is a version of Cirque du Ruse. Lies, obfuscation, deflection, self interests just begin to identify the ingredients of their makeup.
I’d be a little tougher calling for a Jeffersonian revolution. I’m a Tea Party supporter but I think that this task is beyond their ability to tackle…
>>”Are the Republican Senators so afraid…”
You can stop right there. This is a party driven and defined by fear.
I don’t believe that they driven or defined by fear – They are alright with you believing that though. Same as some are alright with us believing they are just dumb.
They are neither fearful nor dumb, they are lying, self-serving, mercenaries. Who get away with it because they can – we need to make recalls into a cottage industry.
I don’t think self-serving mendacity and fear are mutually exclusive. But I maintain (to borrow from Alsitair MacLean) that fear is the key, the driver. The Republican party for my entire life has been afraid of the liberal media and cowed by their Narratives. I think it is so embedded by now as a characteristic in the party that courage — or the strength and vision not to defer to their Narratives — has been nearly extinguished. In this culture of fear, the conviction of an opposing vision has been lost to the stratagems of adaptation and compromise. Listen to Lyndsey Graham say almost ANYTHING on ANY issue: his words are simply vibrating with fear and the bitchy self-loathing (which is projected against true conservatives who serve as intolerable living reminder of his fear) that come with the reality of his own inferiority, the second-class political citizenship he’s internalized.
I have decided to leave the Republican party because your and other Republican participation in the Immigration Amnesty Bill is the last straw.
The nomination of liberal governor and corrupt businessman, ruthless campaigner (until he came to the general election and failed to expose Obama because his own gubernatorial record exactly matched Obama’s presidency) Mitt Romney in 2012 was unconscionable (I, a layperson, counted 8 lies in the Jacksonville debate alone), the lack of opposition to Obama’s illegal actions and obscene spending is another, but this bill will destroy what is good about America and is beyond disrespectful to law-abiding, tax-paying Americans – it shows an actual hatred for our nation and its welfare.
I’m beyond disappointed, beyond disgusted – now I’m finished with the farcical group of buffoons that you and the likes of Boehner, Graham and McConnell will have made of the Republican Party by the end of the Obama regime (if there is an end before the United States of America is completely destroyed).
You are the age of my children. Soon, you will have to explain your actions to your children (and someday, to God).
You will have to admit and own the consequences of this stupid, destructive bill and say, “I was very, very wrong”.
By the time your bill bears its ugly fruit, the violence, insolence and brazenness of Islamists human trafficking, porn and drug cartels, terrorist bombers, etc. will have the run of our nation and women and children of both sexes be victims of their unspeakable actions.
You will have helped Obama turn the US into Pakistan and Syria.
To the RNC/Republican Party of Florida:
After six decades of voting Republican, I’m leaving the Republican party. The last two presidential candidates, the lack of opposition to Obama’s illegal, unconstitutional actions and obscene spending, and the participation in S744, the Amnesty/Immigration Bill have shown me that this party is no longer interested in the welfare of our nation and its people.
Charlie Crist – who I loathe – could not have done the damage to the United States that Rubio – who I supported in 2010 – is doing.
No surprises. Rubio does what Jeb Bush says. We didn’t have a choice in Florida. Rubio was the alternative to Crist. They played to conservatives, while their machinery simultaneously was buying Florida for Romney.
I’m bringing this here from the Tip Line…
Well, THAT is simply beee-zar.
And, I hope, the end of Jan Brewer’s career.

Well, good. At least Texas is not confused by all the BS slung by Schumer and his enablers in the GOP.
I’ve been wearing out NC senators Burr(R) & Hagan(D) with phone calls and emails, to the point I expect a cease & desist order soon, lol.
Did you receive a letter from Burr that essentially said he is thinking about the issue? That indicated to me he will support this bill. I wanted a “Hell no I’m not voting for this bill”.
Call or write your Senators even if you think they will vote for it.
I told my corrupt Senator tool of the Democratic Party that I was a registered Democrat (I am but haven’t voted that way since 2008 which I didn’t tell them) and that I would send money to his opponent if he voted for this lousy bill. I told the Republican-I don’t know how he’ll vote that it was terrible to vote on a bill of 1000 plus pages nobody had read.
Look. They are importing a new electorate. One without the reverence for our founding and desire to be left the hell alone. One that will be easier to please.
We are being made redundant.
