The Stupid Party

Guest Submission by Ory Hebert:

News from The Hill that Speaker Boehner, along with Rep. Ryan, was originally pushing for the passage of a version of the Senate’s immigration bill in a closed-door meeting should not be a shock to us at this point.  But I gotta admit that I lulled myself into thinking that this immigration bill would be DOA upon entering the House—the People’s House.

But alas our fearless leader is already working behind the scenes to get this monstrosity passed because…uh…Hispanics! Or something.

It’s like a bad joke.  They truly think that new amnesty at the hand of the GOP equals a landslide electoral victory in the upcoming midterms and in 2016.  Just like after 1986!  Perfect!  And they think their constituents (US!) are just too stupid to understand this flawless logic.

Of course we know that they have the equation completely 100% bass ackwards.  Passage of any version of this bill that puts amnesty before border security will do nothing but further damage the Stupid Party.

And remind me again how gifted Paul Ryan is with numbers.  He has regrettably become yet another water carrying partisan hack in a long line of water carrying partisan hacks.  The discussion (as is the case with virtually every national issue these days) should not go any further than this:  We are 17 trillion dollars in debt.  We simply cannot afford to pay entitlements for an additional 12 million citizens.  Scratch that.  We can’t even afford to pay entitlements to our existing citizens.  Even if you still buy into the GOPe rhetoric that this guy is some sort of Good Will Hunting type math whiz, he’s still not a sorcerer, people.

Allow me to share the funniest excerpt from the article (emphasis mine).

“"I feel very good. I feel we are in very good position to do it the right way. We don’t want to rush anything," he said before diving into a crowded elevator.”

Could there not be a more appropriate metaphor for our situation with our alleged leaders than Ryan literally jumping into a plummeting elevator as he spewed this nonsense?  Why do these dudes have to make it so difficult to be a Republican?

A fair warning to temporary Speaker Boehner, temporary House budget chief Ryan, and any others who are considering acting without the consent of the governed:  You’re on our list.

      good point! but the GOPe aren’t listening and don’t care….

      • isabel matos

        No kidding.

  • TeaPartyBarbie

    What Hispanics want this? All the Hispanics I know, and I know plenty,. don’t want this bill. Preebus, Ryan, and Boeher are pushing it. Why? Who owns them? Certainly NOT the American people!

    Who are the donors of these men? Who owns them?

    Lo que los hispanos quieren esto? Todos los hispanos que conozco, y sé que un montón,. No queremos que este proyecto de ley. Preebus, Ryan, y Boeher están empujando. ¿Por qué? ¿Quién es el dueño? Ciertamente no el pueblo de Estados Unidos!

    ¿Quiénes son los donantes de estos hombres? ¿Quién es el dueño?

    • Argus_C4P

      Makes you wonder what NSA and DOJ have on them through their spying? This capitulation looks more and more like a shakedown of weak leaders.

      • friskyness

        it’s all the stupid big donors who want this….but they don’t understand that all their money they are pushing to pass this, will be a waste, because the republicans will never be in power again, where the big donors will get their money back!

        • socon

          The big donors want this for cheap labor. All they care about is money.

    • conservativemama

      This hispanic doesn’t want it.

  • senator20526

    This senate bill is as bad as Obamacare…It stinks and unacceptable to us living on the border…My Rep. Paul Gosar, came out against this bill or any revisions of it.

  • isabel matos

    It is not just about them losing, what do we do to prevent this??? A projected 30 million legalized illegals will create the communist dream: a permanent progressive majority. It’s a commie agenda.

    BOEHNER has appointed Luis Gutierrez, a known former Marxist Leninist form the Socilaist Party in Puerto Rico. A other amnesty activists, Xavier Becerra, is also co-writing the House Bill. Here’s proof, not opinion: please spread the word. This is unacceptaple!

    BOEHNER is untrustworthy, but again, grassroots are alone in calling and writing. Letters is not enough. What else can we do?? Where is the leadership that we need to mobilize against this monstrosity? No one will stand up to BOEHNER in the house. No one.

    • friskyness

      it’s unthinkable that Boehner has marxists writing the House Bill! the people’s house doesn’t listen to the people….Luis Gutierrez is such a joke!

      • isabel matos

        To me, it’s unthinkable Cuban Americans in the House want Immigration Reform Diaz Balart and Ros Lehtinene are laughing this. Ow, saying they’ll take their time. Yes, they get their fifteen minutes of fame and then what???!!!! It it’s makes me want to scream. I hate RINOS! I hate JeB Bush! I hate the GOP!!! Did they not just see what happened to RUBIO????? Even Bill Kristol is telling the GOP to kill the bill (what a jerk, late to the party as usual)

  • Koma Kehuli

    Like Rubio, Ryan cannot be trusted and both lose the Conservatives Trust factor. Both joined and are now members of the Washington Establishment Elitist. Boehner was never trusted by the Conservatives Base ’cause like Dole/McCain/Romney they are RINOs at heart.

    • isabel matos

      Neither one will stand up to their superiors. Rubio to the Bush Mush clan and Ryan now to BOEHNER. I asked and still haven’t gotten an answer.. Who will stand up to John Boehner in the House?. They all do as they are told. Where is the feisty group of 12 who didn’t vote for his speakership to be renewed..?

      • Koma Kehuli

        At the present, no one! Rand is the closes but seems to teeter more toward Libertarian views. He is more like his father and that in it self can off worry me.

  • 808forpalin

    Another great piece. I hope you run for office someday, Ory. In the meantime please keep ‘em coming.

  • isabel matos

    One more thing about the last comment. Being stupid is not a liability in DC. Since the left needs idiots on our side to do their dirty work, they will always be welcome. ;)

  • Tom Ferriday

    This is no surprise. We all know the GOP wants to pass the Rubio Amnesty bill. They’ll pass some rider bill along with it calling for more border enforcement just to shut us up. But further analysis will reveal that the rider will not have any teeth and will just be a mirage.

    We know John Boehner is worthless, bumbling, arrogant, stupid, and cannot be trusted. We know Paul Ryan is a smarmy, self-described wunderkind who has failed to accomplish a single thing in office and was worse as a VP candidate. We know Marco Rubio is an agent of La Raza. We know Jeb Bush is a liberal Rockefeller Republican who is determined to seize the nomination by any means. We know Karl Rove is the mastermind behind all of this.

    What’s terrifying is that when the GOP passes this, it will guarantee Democrat victory in 2014. No conservative will vote to help keep Boehner in power. You can only imagine what the Democrats will do once they have absolute power again.

  • john norton

    I read the entire peice it was a good read… THE FIX IS IN ALREADY…: ( Steve King said its a 50/50 split…rt now…

  • nkthgreek

    This may not be politically correct, but it’s time for Sarah to reload and bag some more RINOs.

  • PhilTan

    FAUX was running a promotion for the "Immigration Reform" bill being supported by conservatives. The three faces they used as the conservatives supporting it were, drum roll please : Marco Rubioooo, Paul Ryan, and of course Jeb Bush. How stupid do they think we are ???? If there was anyone left who doesn’t think Rubiooo isn’t working for the Bush Mafia, well this should clarify that. Ugggghhhhh ! Sarah, we need you.

    • section9

      Right, well, hopefully she gets out there and does something about this over the summer.
      One of the things that is holding her back from getting into elective politics is seeing whether the Establishment decides to commit suicide and do what the Democrats want them to do. Why run for a Senate seat for the Whig Party? That would be stupid.
      She’ll wait and see what the House does. Already, the fix appears to be in.

  • dmac8889

    Stupid is as stupid does. 70% of Americans stated they want the Border Closed, BEFORE any other comprehensive measures toward Amnesty or citizenship. That means 30% want open borders. Its a good bet that the 30% reside on the political LEFT. That means nearly all of the political RIGHT wants Border security first BEFORE any other immigrants measures. So how STUPID can one be to offer legislation that would result in going against 90% of the people who voted you into office?

    I thought the Democrats were being stupid believing that they can get a Comprehensive Immigration Bill without Closing the Border. That the LEFT actually believe they have a winning political argument, when 70% of the country disagrees with their legislation. So someone tell me WHY would the Republican leadership decide to vote on something that would force them into legislation Conference with the passed Senate Bill?

    Well here is stupid: The Republicans believing they will even have a Party remaining after the Immigration Bill comes out of the Senate/House Conference. The Party will cease to exist. That is elementary Mr. Boehner.

    • Lemuel Vargas

      Because the Senate passed the bill without even reading it.

  • suedixon

    and now orin hatch of utah says that the house will pass an immigration that a threat Orin?

  • Christopher H Fromme

    I sent Paul Ryan a copy of Sarah’s FB post on Amnesty with a warning that we are tired of hearing his voice being used to push Amnesty in radio AD’s

  • Christopher H Fromme

    There is a very good chance that no bill dealing with immigration will come to the House floor before the August break. Then in August everyone has the chance to hammer the message NO AMNESTY deals.

    • isabel matos

      I am curious, should we wait until the last minute or start hammering now??? You know, make it a daily chore. This bill has to be killed in its tracks. There should be no bill is what I’m saying! We need to mobilize!

      I called my congresswoman today and asked her if she knew that amnesty was a communist-driven agenda? I can’t for e life of me explain the Republicnas stupidity on this, I just can’t.

  • Lemuel Vargas

    As noted by me before, the conservative officials we voted before might be overcome by the pressure cooker that is Wash. D.C. and its attendant temptations. Think Boehner and Ryan has succumbed to both.

    If they will turn their backs on us we the people, we could just primary them when their turn comes.
