The Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz, has literally thrown the gauntlet right in John “Crybaby” Boehner’s face. He calls Boehners plan to advance Immigration reform exactly what it is. A plan to obliterate the GOP’s chance to take control of the Senate in Nov. As far as I am concerned, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are democrat operatives working tirelessly to undermine and destroy the GOP from the inside out.
Taking on the immigration issue right now is as stupid and losing a proposition as can possibly be conceived of by the GOP Leadership. Even a complete imbecile like Boehner has to know this, it can therefore only be logically deduced that it is the intention of Boehner and the other senior leadership to intentional harm the GOP. Boehner has shown himself to be an absolute master of the art of snatching defeat out of the clenched and grinning jaw of victory. If he insists on pushing this amnesty crap, there can be no question by anyone (well except the imbeciles in Ohio who keep reelecting that big cry baby) that he is intentional trying to destroy the GOP.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) thinks that the House GOP leadership’s renewed push this week to grant amnesty to illegal aliens would destroy the Republican Party’s chances at retaking the Senate in 2014.
Cruz questioned how establishment Republicans unilaterally caving to Democrats on everything from the farm bill to the budget to the debt ceiling and more could think amnesty is a good idea at this time.
“Right now, Republican leadership in both chambers is aggressively urging members to stand down on virtually every front: on the continuing resolution, on the budget, on the farm bill, on the debt ceiling,” Cruz said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News on Thursday.
They may or may not be right, but their argument is that we should focus exclusively on Obamacare and on jobs. In that context, why on earth would the House dive into immigration right now? It makes no sense, unless you’re Harry Reid. Republicans are poised for an historic election this fall–a conservative tidal wave much like 2010. The biggest thing we could do to mess that up would be if the House passed an amnesty bill–or any bill perceived as an amnesty bill–that demoralized voters going into November. Rather than responding to the big-money lobbying on K Street, we need to make sure working-class Americans show up by the millions to reject Obamacare and vote out the Democrats. Amnesty will ensure they stay home.
Cruz added that granting amnesty now–while wrong in his opinion at any time–would ensure Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid remains in his position in after the 2014 elections.
“Amnesty is wrong in any circumstance, and if we are going to fix our broken immigration system–and we should–it makes much more sense to do so next year, so that we are negotiating a responsible solution with a Republican Senate majority rather than with Chuck Schumer,” Cruz said. “Anyone pushing an amnesty bill right now should go ahead and put a ‘Harry Reid for Majority Leader’ bumper sticker on their car, because that will be the likely effect if Republicans refuse to listen to the American people and foolishly change the subject from Obamacare to amnesty.”
