IMMIGRATION REFORM WILL BE THE “UNDOING” OF THE GOP – HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER IS AT HIS WITS-END – BUT HE WAS NEVER MUCH OF A LEADER ANWAY!

I’ll keep this short-n-sweet.

House Speaker John Boehner (OH) is at the end of his political career as a weak, ineffectual political leader about to be confronted with a colossus – immigration reform.  A majority of the House Republicans are NOT in favor of immigration reform. The conundrum for Boehner is that should he invoke the Dennis Hastart Rule (pass legislation with a majority of Democrats and only a minority of Republicans) to pass immigration reform he will surely be stripped of his role as Speaker of the House.
.
The conundrum for the GOP as a whole is that failure to achieve immigration reform will consign them to a permanent minority status as far as regaining control of the White House.  To get straight to the point, the GOP will not allow for meaningful immigration reform to be passed in this Congress and it’s time to write off the Republican Party as a legitimate national party.  Latinos and Asians will not align themselves with today’s version of the GOP and neither will any other non white voting block.  This writer is consigning the Republican Party to the ash heap of history.
.
If by some chance immigration reform does pass Congress and heads to the President for his signature it will be so encumbered with restrictions that, in essence, the non white voting blocks will most assuredly see the legislation for what it is and that is this:  a continuing hostility towards ethnic groups by a largely white and conservative political party (GOP).
.
Either way you can stick a fork in today’s Republican apparatus.  Their real role will be to keep stirring things up in this country for no positive effect and then devising ways to profit from it.  Now, that’s free market enterprise for you.
