With the multiple failures presenting a GOLDEN opportunity to educate the public about the folly of socialism and big government solutions, are the GOP establishment types seriously thinking about pushing amnesty? From the Washington Times:
House Speaker John A. Boehner announced Tuesday that he has hired a longtime advocate of legalizing illegal immigrants to be an adviser, signaling that the Republican is still intent on trying to pass an immigration bill during this congressional session.
Immigrant rights advocates cheered the move as a sign of Mr. Boehner’s dedication to action. Those who want a crackdown on illegal immigration said the top Republican in the House has moved closer to embracing amnesty by hiring Rebecca Tallent, a former staffer for Sen. John McCain and fellow Arizona Republican Jim Kolbe.
We can only hope that this item is a PR move to placate donors. The GOP cannot possibly be prepared to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, can they?
