Menendez: GOP Path To White House Requires Amnesty Bill

Just what we need, electoral advice from a Democrat

(Politico) Sen. Robert Menendez says Republicans need to accept a pathway to citizenship in immigration reform, or they’ll never take back the White House.

Discussing the debate over border security measures in the bill, the New Jersey Democrat who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee decried efforts to create unreachable triggers on legalization.

“What I cannot support, and what I believe the community cannot support at the end of the day is that we’re going to have triggers that can never be achieved in terms of border security as an impediment to the pathway to legalization and citizenship,” Menendez said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I would tell my Republican colleagues, both in the House and the Senate, that the road to the White House comes through a road with a pathway to legalization. Without it, there will never be a road to the White House for the Republican Party,” Menendez said.

On one hand, he’s probably right, because if Marco Rubio runs after the Gang of 8 shamnesty bill the mostly liberal leaning media and some of the Republican insiders will do all they can to make Mr. Sellout the GOP nominee. However, in terms of winning the White House, if Rubio is the nominee Republicans will stay home in droves. Heck, if the GOP helps pass this horrible legislation, Republicans, and especially Conservatives, will stay home in drove, or perhaps vote for a 3rd party candidate. Either way, if this passes there is no chance that a Republican will win. Which is really what Menendez is pushing, because he’s certainly not dumb enough to believe what he’s saying. He knows that this whole scheme to legalize up to 11 million illegal aliens and bring in up to 17 million of their family members will add a huge Democrat voter base. So it’s not just 2016 at stake, but all future elections.

But, it’s not just Menendez who’s pushing this disingenuous tripe

(The Blaze) Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Sunday told conservatives who are trying to block the measure that they will doom the party and all but guarantee a Democrat will remain in the White House after 2016′s election. Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., went a step further and predicted “there’ll never be a road to the White House for the Republican Party” if immigration overhaul fails to pass. (snip)

“After eight years of President Obama’s economic policies, and, quite frankly, foreign policy, people are going to be looking around,” Graham said. “But if we don’t pass immigration reform, if we don’t get it off the table in a reasonable, practical way, it doesn’t matter who you run in 2016. We’re in a demographic death spiral as a party and the only way we can get back in good graces with the Hispanic community, in my view, is pass comprehensive immigration reform. If you don’t do that, it really doesn’t matter who we run.”

Right, because passing this mule fritters bill will help, Lindsey? Doddering fool.

If the Republicans ran a conservative for the office, he/she would win. In the last election, the guy that won the primaries (with massive help from the central party), was a liberal and the only difference between him and Obama was the color of his skin. The others in the primary were too religious. About 40 to 50% of those that consider themselves conservatives will not vote for the outwardly religious bunch as they see them as nothing but another version of progressives. Finally, get off abortion. That splits with conservative vote and many of us who want a return to freedom feel that the abortion issue is used to divide the conservative vote. Notice what the abortion issue has done the Supreme Court. Roberts was put in as a conservative that was very religious and would vote against abortion. Yet he is turning out to vote more with the liberals.

Doddering old fool is 57 years old. We often choose to use those insults tha would be most hurtful to ourselves. One year younger than the means age of a GOP voter. American Jews have not forgiven conservatives for what happened 80 years ago, African Americans have not forgiven American conservatives for things that (mostly) stopped decades ago. How long do you think it will take for Hispanics to forgive?

John, you should try a dictionary and look up the definition of doddering. And try reading, since I did not call him old. That was your fevered brain adding the word, which is rather bigoted against old people of you.

Second, the last person to ask for civility and to rail against insults would be a liberal.

Third, are you blaming the GOP for the Holocaust? First, fuck you. 2nd, the Nazis are your ideological brethren. 3rd, you liberals are the ones which want to see Israel destroyed.

Fourth, when it comes to slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, etc, that was all Democrats. Learn some history and fact, jackass. Learn about the racist party you support.
