Thoughts on the immigration bill votes
As per the precedents to the most pivotal immigration votes of our generation:
McCain doesnt vote on the first. Brownback doesnt vote on the second. Accordingly, neither is worthy of the Presidency.
From his comments, Fred! would have voted Nayyyyy. Long live Fred!.
I watched some of the debate. Sen. Sessions is a hero. To see him be attacked by the Kennedy's, Feinstein's of the Senate was disgusting. And the other Repubs - McConnell, Graham, - etc., wtf are you thinking? The Republican party is now too fractured to survive. The White House supported the original bill but have been quiet ever since.
If this bill eventually passes, with the support of stray Repubs and the White House. the party will be doomed to minority status for a good 20 years.
The immigration bill could have been a nice opportunity for Repubs to pick up the blue collar Reagan dems. But that opportunity has been shelved.
Fuck the stuttering President and his inept handlers.
