Quotes of the day

Asked on Fox News whether he sides with those two senators and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) or opponents of the immigration bill like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Huckabee chose the former.

“I’d say probably the Rubio, Corker, Hoeven [side],” Huckabee said…

He also said he doesn’t like the idea of so-called triggers that would allow illegal immigrants a path to citizenship once certain border security requirements are met.

“You don’t just wait and do nothing on the pathway process while you’re working on the fencing,” he said. “And let’s be clear: We’re never going to have 100 percent border security. There’s always somebody who’s going to find a way to break into the system.”

***

“I like what I see today, as long as it doesn’t change,” said Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), who has signed on as a co-sponsor of the amendment and is considered a swing vote for the bill. Another co-sponsor is Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), who’s already said she would vote for the overall legislation.

It’s not just undecided Republicans who might be more inclined to vote for the immigration bill with the Corker-Hoeven deal.

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, who has repeatedly broken from his party on border measures since floor debate began last week, told POLITICO that Thursday’s agreement makes the immigration bill “very much more palatable.” Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor has also expressed concerns about border security and has been talking with Corker and Hoeven about their plan…

“We’ve already had quite a few sign up as co-sponsors,” Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said. “That would give us momentum and a significant number of votes to convince our colleagues on the other side of the Capitol that this is a worthwhile endeavor.”

***

From one perspective, immigration restrictionists are correct. In the current political atmosphere — the atmosphere they helped to create — immigrants who become citizens will be deeply suspicious of Republicans. So are current voters who have ties to or sympathy for immigrant communities. The problem is this: While killing immigration reform may slightly extend the viability of the current Republican political coalition, it may seriously undermine the attempt to adjust it…

This won’t be enough. While appealing to Hispanic voters is not like appealing to Manhattanites — it doesn’t involve the abandonment of social conservatism — it does require a populist economic agenda. Recent immigrants are naturally concerned about a working social safety net, a working public education system and a working job-training system. Republicans will need to offer serious reform proposals in these areas. And this requires a positive, active, market-oriented role for government that competes with more centralized and bureaucratic Democratic approaches.

***

RUSH LIMBAUGH: Now, again, it’s the New York Times, so you have to take that under advisement. But the New York Times says Republicans are deeply involved, but they don’t want you to know it. They don’t want to admit it because they want to prove the White House is not pulling the strings. But the White House is! This is a “stealth” White House operation. The Hoeven-Corker amendment could well be an Obama administration idea submitted in this war room and then two senators were cherry-picked to put their names on it.

I don’t know that that’s the case, but this story in the New York Times makes it entirely possible. The New York Times story says that some Republicans, quote, “are so eager to prove that the White House is not pulling the strings that their aides say the administration is not playing any role at all,” and they point to a spokesman for Marco Rubio. A spokesman for Rubio has denied that the president’s involved in this at all. So, look, I can only tell you what the New York Times is saying.

It’s up to you whether you want to believe it or not. The New York Times, essentially, is saying here that Obama and the White House are pulling Rubio’s strings.

***

“I think the Republican House was put on this earth to save us from huge pieces of comprehensive legislation like this that I think are not well designed, would not work well. If we want to solve particular parts of the immigration problem, we can solve them. We can have more high-tech workers, if you want. We could have more guest workers for agriculture, if that’s necessary. We could legalize the people who are here. This 1,000-page bill, which is now probably 1,100 page bill–and much more expensive bill–because of this amendment, is not a good idea,” said the boss.

***

While Romney captured the nomination, even then many conservatives never truly trusted him. Rubio could face something similar. Tweets with “Rubio” and “traitor” and “RINO” are already popping up with regularity.

Also, Romney was able to finesse the [RomneyCare] issue by saying he was against big, bad federal mandates, not state ones. It’s difficult to see how Rubio could do a Romney on this one. He can’t resort to the federal-state differences when it comes to providing a path to citizenship.

Whichever path he takes, Rubio can be certain that he will continue to be hammered by conservatives who actually took his 2010 words at face value when he said he always had and always would oppose what they call “amnesty.”

***

***

Note that McCain said [at CPAC in 2008] that border security should come first, before “other aspects” of immigration policy were considered, implying that both should not be handled in the same piece of legislation. McCain appeared to understand that the American public did not trust the federal government to secure the border at the same time that it offered legal status to illegal aliens, based on the lessons of past rounds of immigration reform…

Perhaps McCain does not feel bound by promises made in the course of a lost campaign. But his statements to CPAC were not just about the policies he would pursue. They were also about lessons he had learned, about his state of mind regarding the issue. On Thursday, McCain acknowledged that there was “understandable skepticism” about immigration reform. Clearly he is no longer skeptical–if, indeed, he ever truly had been.

***

Yeah, that’s why the patriotic House members position has got to be until the Senate is in Republican hands — preferably Rubio-free, sorry — we’re not going to pass a bill that mentions immigration. And you should know that John Boehner secretly wants to pass amnesty because his idiot consultants are telling him, ‘Oh, it’s going to be a great boon for Republicans, having 30 million voters who will never vote for a Republican.’

But they need fig leafs, like this amendment in the Senate today. It’s an utter fig leaf to pretend like this is going to secure the border. What, one border agent every 1,000 yards? All this is, is more government workers, more pensions. It doesn’t shore up the border. It’s a fig leaf to allow Republicans who want amnesty but don’t want their voters to punish them. Punish them, voters.

While appealing to Hispanic voters is not like appealing to Manhattanites — it doesn’t involve the abandonment of social conservatism — it does require a populist economic agenda. Recent immigrants are naturally concerned about a working social safety net, a working public education system and a working job-training system.

Given that, outside of Cuban-Americans, Hispanics are also social liberals, courting them at more than the 30% Republicans not named George W. Bush got them necessarily involves also abandoning social conservatism.

Then again, this is what the GOP wants – a new primary minority that is neither conservative nor libertarian.

“I like what I see today, as long as it doesn’t change,” said Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), who has signed on as a co-sponsor of the amendment and is considered a swing vote for the bill.

And I contributed $100 to Heller when he had an A+ rating on NumbersUSA. Silly me.

I have made a formal request for a refund, as his constituents are now foreign nationals, not American citizens residing in Nevada.

And foreign nationals who RIDICULED AND HUMILIATED HIM at a “Campaign for Citizenship” rally in Reno on May 29, pulling the Clint Eastwood empty chair bit (a chair with his name writ large) when he didn’t accept their invitation.

Incredible — representing foreign invaders who ridiculed him instead of citizen constituents who contributed to his campaign.

The best way to deep six amnesty is to pound into the heads of the Capital Security Conservatives like McCain and the WSJ who don’t believe in borders but do believe in nation building that their whole worldview is absurd and is collapsing.

If AP and Ed and the rest of the right blogosphere want to kill amnesty, you must let it be known that there will never be any support ever again for using US troops abroad. If you guys continue to carry water for an aggressive US foreign policy even after amnesty, you are complete suckers. Too often the american right is distracted by foreign boogeymen… and they captain save-a-ho for a country that hates them.

burrata on June 21, 2013 at 9:31 PM

Oh, come on Republicans, if you’re going to be part of this monstrosity, at least be creative about it.

Have you learned nothing from Obamacare?

What you need to do is bury hidden items that no one knows about until the bill becomes law.

Here’s one:

All public land within five miles of the border must be sold to private landholders. Drone surveillance must be bid out to private contractors.

Then, by the time the bill becomes law, make sure that the only company capable of buying the land and executing the contract is owned by one of your political donors, like the Koch brothers.

It’s how the Democrats do things.

If you Republicans have difficulty with the concept of special interest legislation, I can recommend a book for you:

Congressional Bill Writing For Dummies.

Did any of the Republicans voting for Gang of Eight bill ever use the term “de facto amnesty” before, say, 2011? McCain might have

So all of these people independently concluded that the status quo is “de facto amnesty,” but only after each was safely elected. Got it.

Are any supporters of the Gang of Eight bill nonetheless troubled by either (a) the deceit practiced by Rubio, Heller, McCain as candidates…

… or (b) the fact that, if you take them at face value, none of them thought deeply about this issue until after getting elected?

I wonder which major policy issue next year’s crop of GOP candidates will lie about to win conservative votes

I wonder which major policy issue next year’s crop of GOP candidates will lie about to win conservative votes #backgroundchecks

If you’re going to govern as a moderate, run as a moderate. Respect the voters enough to give them an informed choice.

I think it was @seantrende who said that Democrats are led by true believers and supported by clients, whereas the GOP…

According to Rush the other day, the immigration bill during Reagan in ’86 and he got 37%. The next election the Repubs got 30%.
Epic fail if you are drinking the Koolaid premise of the Dems that somehow we need to atone to the Hispanic vote.
Further in ’08 or ’09 they voted for a bill that passed for 700 miles of fence. DHS has only done 36. So how stupid do you have to be to trust Janet and this admin to honor anything.
It is pork dressed as immigration for illegal democrats.
Starlink on June 21, 2013 at 9:31 PM

The first bold part, you should never base your opinions on something solely because of what an advertising salesmen who’s entire job is to get as many people eagerly tuned in for the ads to be run, even El Rushbo.

The second bold part, the Dem’s premise??? Excuse me, but you give far too much leeway to the Republicans and must have a tendency to blame the opposition for the party’s faults rather than seeing things clearly.

The premise you describe is the Republican party’s premise on why THEY should go along with the immigration reform Obama has threatened to go after since his arrival, not the other way around.

There’s only a small handful of Republican representatives who maintain your position in Washington. And they’re about to be completely ignored.

Just like I’ve told you all a thousand times they would be, have been, and will be when it comes down to it.

No one is gonna fully back your hoped for agenda’s in public, or at least not for more than a campaign.

We can’t trust them on not expanding Obamacare.

We can’t trust them on immigration.

What issues are left?

Can we trust them on gun control?

Can we trust them on cap and trade?

Funding for Planned Parenthood isn’t going anywhere.

This is a deal breaker.

I voluntarily ban myself between posts just to have a conformable gap so people can reflect deeply about what I’m saying.

SparkPlug on June 21, 2013 at 9:44 PM

You are so lucky to ban yourself..

If I post too fast…
I am banned for posting too fast…
But then I calm down and then….
I am reinstated..

Be careful of what we wish for – if the Rats regain control of the House before 2017, they’re not going to give it, or the Presidency, up under any circumstances. Not to the Amnesty GOP. Not to the Tea Party. Not to anybody.

Do you want to repeat 2009-2010? For that matter, do you know of any jobs in your neck of the woods because I’ll be moving if a full-blooded Rat takes the seat back.

Steve Eggleston on June 21, 2013 at 9:44 PM

If Boehner passes amnesty the GOP becomes the current Democrat party the donks are freed up to get their communard Chavez on…

I’m rather transitory in address over the years…

I would say “Texas is hiring” but the whole point of this crap is to Californicate Texas in Mexifornia….

If 33 million “newer better Americanos” are the answer then I aim to start asking a new set of questions…

I am against the democrat agenda…I hate the GOP sell outs who are allowing my nation to be destroyed in the name of cheap labor and global socialism….

and “hate” is the word I have given a lifetime to the GOP volunteered at age 16 I’m 40 now…

they do this I will never vote GOP again, I hate tribal identity politics but if the GOP refuses to be the party of growth, less government, and national defense with a helping of law and order then I have as little use for it as the democrats….

KOOLAID2 on June 21, 2013 at 9:49 PM

The liberal left created this situation. People used to come to this country for a better life, willing to work hard and become Americans. Now, ever since the Dems and their liberal sycophants started using the allure of free housing, free medical care, free monthly benefits, and in essence, becoming Mexico’s social welfare system. They come not to become assimilated Americans, but parasites living off a healthy, but dying, host.

They now come here for the wrong reasons. They come to see how much they can get from the U.S taxpayers. But, I suppose that’s exactly the type of citizens the Dems want. More takers.

iamsaved on June 21, 2013 at 9:49 PM

Can the way lynching is used as a rhetorical device be compared to a commenter using Geniune as its nom, when in fact both embellish for the sake of shock value?

Bmore on June 21, 2013 at 9:49 PM

How about this one?

I’m hoping you don’t. Of course you were just talking about the bill though.

Bmore on June 21, 2013 at 9:49 PM

I will pay $10.00 to have BMore lynched. But I’m willing to negotiate if the lynching is good.

SparkPlug on June 21, 2013 at 9:51 PM

Steve Eggleston on June 21, 2013 at 9:51 PM

Wait. I can save $10 if I lynch BMore myself.

SparkPlug on June 21, 2013 at 9:52 PM

I like it when Ann makes points that cut right through the amnesty talking points BS. “We have de facto murder”, heh.

whatcat on June 21, 2013 at 9:52 PM

Better still here’s a $20 spot to lynch me with a sign over my head that reads Racist Teabagger. ; )

Wait a minute….Dire Straits is banned now?!?!? What in the name of St. John the Evangelist is going on around this place?!?

The only Lynching I’m in favor of is consuming the primary product of Lynchburg, TN.

He will email you. Tell you to desist. If you then decide to continue the behavior he will ban you. He may refer to it as cancel your posting privileges or membership here at HA. Good luck and Gods speed!

Bmore on June 21, 2013 at 9:54 PM

Steve Eggleston on June 21, 2013 at

I read and respect your comments a lot. What do you see as an alternative to bailing on the GOP and doing nothing?

smoothsailing on June 21, 2013 at 9:55 PM

Steve Eggleston on June 21, 2013 at 9:51 PM

The Bill of Rights has as rendered maybe 30 years left…

the democrats hate it, the latinos have no loyalty to our system as rendered…

our politicians are at best soft idiots, and at worst outright traitors who work for the other party like McCain and Rubio…..

Go Galt

Let it Burn

harlekwin15 on June 21, 2013 at 9:55 PM

Water boarding is over the top. Lynchings are more traditional. I hope to get wholesale pricing on all future lynchings with 90 days same as cash and easy financing.

SparkPlug on June 21, 2013 at 9:55 PM

Even writing about lynching is a bannable offense.

All y’all need to be lynched. And then have your backs sprayed with water.

You hueros.
