“This issue has been around far too long.” — John Boehner, on immigration reform

Grand Old PoltroonWell, John-Boy, it’s only been around this long because, frankly, you turncoats in Washington keep bringing it back against the wishes of your constituents. “Constituents” — you know, the people who put you in the office you now abuse.

Joined by Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney’s erstwhile second fiddle, this less than dynamic duo is urging recalcitrant House Republicans to give their blessings to a version of the Senate’s immigration reform legislation, thus ensuring that socialist Democrats will rule America — what’s left of it — in perpetuity while capitalist Republicans are guaranteed access to a massive new pool of cheap labor.  Boehner’s dilemma is that his fellow Pachyderms, in a rare display of common sense, don’t trust Barack Obama to enforce any part of  the new law that he doesn’t like, i.e. any portion of it that might actually be good for the country.  As Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp puts it, “Trusting Barack Obama with border security is like trusting my daughter with Bill Clinton.”

Meanwhile, back at the palace, the word is that our Marxist monarch is going to undertake a multi-state road trip to try and drum up support for the Democrats’ amnesty scheme.King Obama

“He will also try to convince reticent Republican lawmakers that the GOP’s viability as a national party with aspirations of winning back the White House is linked to the fate of the bill,” said a report in the Wall Street Journal, attributed to White House officials.

The well-being of Republicans is always, of course, as important to the felicitous mind of Barack Obama as the obtaining of theater tickets was to John Wilkes Booth.  In fact, so felicitous is Barry that he has been discussing the reform bill with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, all Democrats, but what the hey, they’re a diverse group — after all, there had been two Republican members once until they resigned in protest over a  1997 trip to communist Cuba by the Caucus chairman.

The beat goes on.

    Boehner is up for re-election again in 2014.
    Too bad I can’t vote against him, wrong district.
    His district is in the Cincinnati area.
    Cincinnati tends to be a cesspool of liberal democrats.
    We will have to see who or what poses a challenge to big John.

    Obama can’t stand the White House, too hot (politically).
    He feels the need to get out there and remind the drones that the republicans are the enemy, and we must defeat any effort they impose upon us.
    It will be interesting to see who he attracts.
