If you want something, don't begin promoting it with a big lie like there are only 11 million illegal aliens here.When Former President George W. Bush can make you look bad, you’re in deep doo-doo as Dick Cheney would say.
Wednesday morning, the former president spoke at a naturalization ceremony for new citizens held at his presidential library in Dallas, Texas. He managed to poke a big stick in House Republicans’ eyes by saying,“During the debate, we keep a benevolent spirit in mind, and we understand the contributions immigrants make to our country.”
A “benevolent spirit” and House Republicans do not go together. Ever. These are the folks elected by those who cheer the death of the uninsured and blindly hate immigrants.
....House Republicans are still desperately searching for any excuse not to pass immigration reform, except the truth. This debate threatens to expose the inner civil war of the GOP within the House, and thereby reveal the Republicans as the entire reason nothing gets done in DC, as well as killing their party with Hispanics for a generation. If John kick-the-can-down-the-road Boehner thinks he can blame the House failure on ObamaCare, he’s only fooling himself and his base.
Speak the truth and you'll be surprised at what may happen.
... unless speaking the truth will cause a disaster to your agenda.
