Boehner 'confident' GOP, Obama
can reach deal on immigration

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Daniel Strauss

Original Article

Posted By:Blackeagle, 11/9/2012 1:24:46 AM

Speaker John Boehner said Thursday he was "confident" Republicans could agree to a comprehensive immigration bill. Boehner (R-Ohio) made the comment in an interview with ABC News released two days after President Obama's decisive reelection victory over Mitt Romney. Obama's win was fueled by Hispanic voters, who made up a larger portion of the electorate than they did four years ago and voted overwhelmingly for Obama. The president won Latino voters by 44 points, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. The defeat and those figures have triggered a round of soul-searching by

So does that mean they'll also start enforcing the law after this 'deal'?

Didn't think so.

No one had anything against hardworking immigrants coming to this country for a better life. It's the lawlessness and looking the other way that pisses people off.

Decide how many green cards or visas we need to issue and do it. Then enforce the law.

You will still have just as many people who will see an advantage to not becoming legal for various reasons - taxes, criminal record, etc. Without enforcing the law we're right back to where we started in a few years.

All you have to do is look at the immigration "reforms" that we have had in the past and how they have resulted in even more illegal immigration. You have to know that this is just an open invitation for another influx of poor uneducated latinos that can't find work in their own country. Obama has already gotten what he wanted which was the hispanic vote so don't count on him to work too hard on immigration.

The Democrats (and probably Latino leaders) are laughing at Boehner. Obama is "confident" too Mr. Speaker. Confident you will give more than you get, just like always. Now after losing the Hispanic vote, they want to back up and just do amnesty too.

Don't want "a deal." I want to see Boehner go away and a TRUE Conservative elected Speaker! Then, start defunding programs and agencies. Don't make me take the name of our Lord in vain.... Wake up you RINO's in the House and grow a set!

I guess none of these idiots listened to Rush yesterday. Latino support for dems has nothing to do with immigration reform but the welfare plantation.The left realized many years ago they couldn't keep winning elections with just blacks ,so they had to import voters.
Sealing the border is a pipe dream as is paying back taxes and fines.

Blacks and hispanics know the dems are true believers in give away programs,they're not going to vote for a switching RINO.

Obama won because white people didn't have the stones to fire a black guy.They'd rather see the country go bankrupt than be called a racist or face riots.

There's no need to cave to the left,their support is in urban areas that are running out of money.Time is on our side as far as the roof caving in on these people.

People are going to start flocking to Rubio to gain latino support.Has Allen West gotten us more black votes?

What #4 said. John Boehner has GOT to GO! There HAS to be a Republican-Conservative who can be Speaker and represent US, and NOT the demonrats..He and Mitch McConnell and so many other weak-kneed-republicans have got to be replaced with Conservatives more concerned about this Country than playing golf with obama! BTW, when they tried to stop Boehner from smoking cigars in his office, he fought like a lion because THAT was important to him. Conservative principles, not so much. Good Grief!

Immigration reform will turn CO, AZ, FL, and NV permanently blue. You don't have to worry about future elections at that point, Boehner because you, your party, and the country are finished at that point. If you want to cave on something, make it taxes. Let them soak the rich. Let them own a new depression. Lets see how turnout is in 2014. Show some damn wisdom, FOOL!

It depends upon how "comprehensive immigration reform" is defined. If the wimpy Republicans go along with a liberal Democrat written "path to citizenship" amnesty for 12-20 million illegal aliens that will eventually hand the liberal Democrats many millions of new ethnic voters the Republicans will be committing long-term political suicide. Only a stupid political party would do that.

There is only one reason that the liberal Democrats want such an amnesty, to eventually grant US voting rights to as many legalized aliens as possible. The highly partisan liberal Democrats would not be doing that if they ever thought that more then a very small percentage of those prospective new voters would ever have an epiphany and vote for conservative Republicans. That is only common sense.

Most illegal aliens are poor people who have no alternative now but to work for relatively low wages in this country. Once legalized under liberal Democrat amnesty programs they will become eligible for all forms of public assistance just like everybody else in the country. Human nature dictates that a huge number of them would apply for public assistance and will vote for the political party that offers them the most new rights, and public benefits and services. That's also just common sense.

While the liberal Democrats are now calling for a massive amnesty, there is no sign that they intend to stop obstructing, opposing, and sabotaging effective immigration law enforcement measures, so you have to figure that any amnesty they pass will encourage more mass uncontrolled illegal immigration.

San Diego – After Latino voters helped re-elect President Obama — delivering the battleground states of Nevada and Colorado, and contributing to the victories in Florida and Virginia — a consensus quickly emerged among pundits and political observers that the quid pro quo would include comprehensive immigration reform. (Snip) So why don’t Democrats want comprehensive-immigration reform? For the same five reasons that Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid teamed up in 2006 and 2007 with the nativist wing of the Republican Party to kill bipartisan bills and, in 2010, helped scuttle the

FORT PIERCE -— A county canvassing board on Friday ordered a recount of early-voting ballots in the race between U.S. Rep. Allen West and Democrat Patrick Murphy, hours after a judge declined to do the same. The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board voted 2-to-1 late Friday in favor of the move in the 18th Congressional District contest, in which Murphy is the unofficial victor. A series of tabulation errors by the county has raised suspicion among West´s campaign and its supporters and appeared to motivate the board´s favorable vote.

Liberals brag about having won the hearts and minds of America, as if, through logic and argument, they’ve persuaded people to accept their bankrupt European socialist ideas. Democrats haven’t changed anyone’s mind. They changed the people. More white people voted for Mitt Romney this year than voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Barack Obama lost white voters by 20 points — the widest margin since 1984. But in 1980, whites were 88 percent of the electorate. In 2012, they were 72 percent of the electorate.

Michigan voters pulled the plug on a proposed constitutional amendment that would have required Michigan's utilities to provide 25 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2025. With most precincts reporting, 63 percent of voters opposed the measure.(snip)Proposal 3 represented a doubling-down on renewable energy after state legislators voted in 2008 to reach a 15 percent standard by 2015. Those backing the ballot measure claimed the new standard would not only accelerate Michigan's move away from environmentally-damaging fossil fuels, but create jobs and investment from the construction and maintenance of wind turbines.

Arkansas Republicans on Tuesday night took control of at least one chamber of the state legislature and captured all of the state's congressional seats for the first time since Reconstruction. Republicans took the majority in the state Senate and will either have a one seat majority or be tied with Democrats in the state House of Representatives, according to election returns. For decades, Arkansas has been a rare dot of Democratic blue amid Republican red across the legislatures of the South. Until Tuesday's elections, it was the only state in the South where both chambers of the legislature were controlled by Democrats.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
