Mitt Romney’s loss has the establishment GOP — including in Georgia — scratching its head, wringing its hands and chattering semi-coherently with advice about how to retake the White House from the socialists. The “conservative” consternation comes with a predictable, disproven and suicidal scheme as a solution: Another amnesty for illegals. The promised result? “More of the Hispanic vote.”

Documenting millions of resentful undocumented Democrats is a crack-pot method to elect a Republican president.
The Marietta Daily Journal -

Why on earth do Republicans now believe amnesty will magically win them significant Hispanic support? For most pro-illegal Hispanics, Republican has the same negative connotation as the KKK for black Americans. After all, Republicans have been the primary proponents of immigration enforcement, and have enacted "draconian" anti-illegal laws at the state level. They're considered anti-Hispanic xenophobes, nativists, and Nazis. I doubt there is anything they can do to change this perception. Had they "evolved" months ago, prior to the election, perhaps they would have appeared a bit more sincere. But, only a fool can't see through this pandering BS.

I suppose it would be asking too much to expect a political party to actually have convictions, and do what's best for the citizens of this country, rather than kowtowing to millions of people who have no legal right to even be here. This is yet another example of why the two-party system is a failure. Politicians from both parties will stoop to any level, kiss any butt, and throw anyone under the bus, if they think it will get votes and the power they crave.

Goes to show you its not about ideology it's all about getting votes and staying in power. Arizona, Georgia, Alabama and a few other states pass the most severe immigration enforcement laws in recent history and not more than two years later the GOP is talking about amnesty. The GOP is a joke right now.
