Limbaugh: GOP Snatching Defeat from Jaws of Victory with Amnesty Push

Washington DC - -( On January 31st, talk-show giant Rush Limbaugh said the Republican Party’s obsession with immigration reform is “taking the focus off Obamacare and transferring it to amnesty,” thereby giving Democrats a pass on one of the best things Republicans could run against in November.

He also emphasized how “frustrating” it is to see Republicans “acting like they believe Obama’s approval numbers are still in the eighties.” In reality, Obama’s numbers are in the tank.

According  to Politico, Limbaugh said the focus on immigration demonstrates the Republican Party’s willingness “to commit suicide.” 

Limbaugh continued:

We ought not be granting citizenship to people who don’t love the country. We ought not be granting citizenship to people who don’t understand the history of this country…But we do, in the interest of fairness and multiculturalism and being nonjudgmental and all this. But the real reason we do is because the people granting citizenship to people like this share the opinion that no place is special. And that’s what’s so damn frustrating and inconceivable about the Republican Party wanting to open the country up to this kind of immigration. It just doesn’t make any sense. It’s the end of the Republican Party…[and] the end of the country as we know it.

    1. The “captains of industry” need cheap labor and the politicians need the votes, so they are going to “accommodate” each other.

    2. Until the existing laws are enforced and the southern border looks like the DMZ in Korea, the violence, drug smuggling, gun running, and human trafficking will continue unabated. Nuremberg II trials appear to be the answer.

    3. I certainly will not vote for anyone, democrat, republican, or independent, who is voting to allow criminals (criminal by way of entering and being here illegally) any rights to be here or any further rights.
