About-Face on Immigration by Hannity and Boehner

They realize without the Latino vote, they are screwed forever. They don't want to change because it is the right thing to do. Just the best thing for them:

1. Too Little - Too Late

I'm a 'black' woman who had voted in my first election in 1992.
1994 - Mid Term Elections - I was their punching bag.

I've never forgotten what they are capable of thinking and doing - in terms of demonizing me.

I hope these folks never forget how they have been painted too. I betcha they don't.

I would be it is too little too late . . .

8. That's going to be a tough sell to the GOP/Bagger contigent.

They have that core principle that luck of birth makes one inherently superior. I'd like to see to them change, but I wouldn't trust anything they say to be more than a thin veneer of CYA to try to fool those who don't look beyond the surface.

2. LOL

 

What craven slime the repigs are! Anything to win.

And stupid/transparent too - the pundits (and election results) said they lost the Latino vote, and VIOLA, the only thing they can do is instantly react by pandering with the most obvious move.

A clear illustration that, even at the highest levels, repigs are stupid, stupid, STUPID. Not just evil - STUPID.

Edited to add: this move should be popular with the teabaggers, too.

5. Hahahahahaha if these idiots

think they can pass some watered down version of the Dream Act and shove

Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, or some other fool in front of a Latino crowd in 2016 saying "tax cuts and deregulation" in Spanish, they really are out to lunch!

Their contempt for the electorate is simply astonishing..

9. Looks like Fox got the memo..........

on how they should view immigration now. The fact that Hannity has changed his tune on immigration to coincide with the parties new line speaks volumes.

11. Here's the problem: the base aint "evolving"

You fuckers spent too much time driving them into a frenzy over this shit and tapping into their innate racist fears of everything darker than them.

NOW you've "evolved"?

Nice try. No one in the communities you need to win believes it and your right flank aint buying it nor having it.

How's that vice grip feeling now?
