An article was posted in Breitbart yesterday claiming the GOP establishment believes Congress should issue President Obama a “blank check” to deal with the border fiasco.
It cited an article in the Huffington Post in which the “Republicrats” expressed concern over the optics of withholding funds from illegal immigrant children, and how that could affect the next election..
They are so worried about pissing off the Hispanic vote that they may allow Obama to have the massive $3.7 billion aid package that he is seeking.
The question is, will they be able to pick up enough Latinos to make up for the multitude of conservative votes that they will lose if they go along with funding this man-made crisis?
If the Republican elite is bothered by the optics of opposition, then they have not been paying attention, but what else is new?
Even the Washington Post is noting that given the current situation, the politics of immigration are not as clear cut as they used to be:
Until now, the politics of immigration have been seen as a no-lose proposition for President Obama and the Democrats. If they could get a comprehensive overhaul passed, they would win. And if Republicans blocked it, the GOP would further alienate crucial Hispanic and moderate voters.
But with the current crisis on the Southwest border, where authorities have apprehended tens of thousands of unaccompanied Central American children since October, that calculus may be shifting.
Republicans and even some Democrats have accused Obama of being insufficiently engaged in a calamity that many say he should have seen coming.
The American people are getting wise to the multiple diseases, terrorists, and vicious gang members invading our country, while the “leadership” in Washington is more dismayed about protecting their electability than they are about shielding the citizenry from disaster. In fact, public opinion has so soured against the actions that the government has already taken, that even residents of Chicago, Obama’s home town, are now referring to him as “the worst president ever.” People in the Democrat base are furious over resources being taken from Americans and given to illegals. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that schools across the country are having to prepare for the influx of additional students when many school systems are already strapped for funding.
It is beyond exasperating to see the Party that is supposed to be for limited government and personal responsibility seemingly stand on the wrong side of every issue.
Meanwhile, that worthless bucket of warm spit named John Boehner has rejected any attempts to build a case for Obama’s impeachment.
Instead, he prefers to grandstand via a lawsuit that will take years to be settled, assuming it is not thrown out entirely.
So when I came across this video of a New York Mets fan who is completely vexed by the crapitude of his team, the parallel to the frustration of GOP voters was too stark to ignore. This guy could be any one of us as we watch the Republicans cave to hiking the debt ceiling, or failing to defund Obamacare. So why do we have any reason to believe that they won’t give the President the billions that he is asking for to stem a crisis that he himself engineered?
Hey you establishment “Einsteins”, if you are so worried about optics, then you damn well better start worrying about what the American people think. The rising tide of voter disenchantment appears to be cutting across political lines. If you choose not to ride that wave of populist anger, then you will be marooned on an island of oblivion…and it’s safe to assume that nobody will ever send you a care package. While you are worried about children who have no business being here in the first place, who is standing up for legal US citizens and their children?
The U.S. national debt is set to hit $18 trillion in less than a year. While political opportunists want to use these illegal alien children as pawns by referring to them as “refugees”, they risk turning American children into economic refugees by leaving them a country that has been completely laid to waste.
The way that irritated Mets fan summed up his team, could just as easily be applied to the Republican elite:
‘MY TEAM HAS SUCKED FOR A LONG TIME AND I DON’T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY!’
The Mets may suck at baseball, but they might still do a better job at governing than the current GOP. Are any of them running for office?
