Jennifer Rubin Says Immigration Problem Spells Doom for Democrats

August 28, 2014

I hope she’s right.

I don’t link Rubin very often but she makes a legitimate point here…

The immigration problem will doom Democrats

Senate Democrats will bear the brunt of voters’ outrage. But House leaders have the ability to fend off extreme and self-destructive moves. Impeachment is out of the question, as House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said many times.

As for a government shutdown or a crisis over the debt ceiling, House leadership has made plain that these do not work as weapons for the GOP; rather, they are booby traps for the unwary. In both cases, Boehner need not capitulate to backbenchers. He can operate on continuing resolutions and pass modest increases in the debt ceiling with Democratic votes.

In a nutshell, Democrats are hoping that if Obama passes amnesty through executive order that Republicans will react by shutting down the government which Democrats will promptly blame on Republicans.

None of this has anything to do with what’s best for the American people. It has everything to do with Democrats desperately trying to retain control of the senate in November.

Which is exactly why they deserve to lose.

    The Dems need to lose in 2014 and 2016 for two reasons: (1) they insisted on cramming Obamacare down our throats and they lied to Americans about the number of poor uninsured Americans and they lied to Americans when they told us repeatedly that we could keep our healthcare plan, our doctors, and our costs would go down $2,500 and (2) they are ignoring our Constitution when they ignore the Presidents’s 40+ unilateral decisions changing the Obamacare law as passed by Congress and they are ignoring the many scandals surrounding the Obama Administration–the IRS scandal, the NSA’s gathering metadata on each and every American, and Benghazi. With the aid of the Democrats in Congress, Obama is acting more like a dictator than our President. This is sad because he is a historic President since he is our First Black President—and yet he may also go down in history as also as our first Dictator. It is a shame he is destroying such a “favorable” place in history in order to progress his Left, Socialist totalitarian ideology.
