Boehner Mocks Own Party For Immigration Reform Cowardice

If some of these guys keep their seats this time, the gathering demographic headwind plunks 'em on the next go-round.
No matter how you slice it, the Dems get both houses of Congress in no more than 10 to 15 years. And from now on, the donkeys retain the Oval Office which means they will select every Supreme Court justice for the next 20 years.

Frankly, I cannot see the GOP surviving as a viable party.


Regarding that immigration reform stall...Boehner mocks his party. "House Speaker John Boehner theatrically mocked his fellow Republican Congressmen for being afraid to reform immigration policy....'Here's the attitude. Ohhhh. Don't make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard,' Boehner whined....'We get elected to make choices. We get elected to solve problems and it's remarkable to me how many of my colleagues just don't want to'...Boehner said he's been working for 16 or 17 months trying to push Congress to deal with immigration reform." Sheila McLaughlin in the Cincinnati Enquirer.
