Not sure how you came to this conclusion. The Tea Party is a very small faction within the GOP House. Very, very small. Such small numbers couldn't actually offset Democratic votes for immigration reform should the House take up a bill.

You folks consistently get it wrong. The GOP as a whole does not trust this President to faithfully execute the laws of the land. That's because this President has completely destroyed any goodwill he might have ever had through Obamacare and every other law he has defied. If a House lawsuit against the President for this very reason doesn't drive this point home with you, then nothing will.

Those of you who blame the Tea Party are just downright ignorant of the facts.

Not on the issue of illegal immigration they haven't. Some fools think that if they cave into amnesty that they will a good share of the Hispanic vote. Nothing could be further from the truth.

For a so-called constitutional scholar he sure seems to be very confused about the constitution.

For a very constitutional scholar and beyond, Obama is mighty confused about everything including the constitution.

And Obama does not give a damn about what you or I think about him, because he knows his ignorant nave supporters and dumb as lame media, helps him achieve his agendas. His supporters are just like him, and that is pathetic.

This issue just about mirrors Obamacare. The democrats were not willing to drop the govt. mandate while the republicans would not consider any form of Obamacare with the mandate. Democrats were able to push it thru with no republican support. Now we have the immigration issue. Democrats want some type of pathway to citizenship while far right republicans will not consider anything with a pathway to citizenship. I have no idea who is going to win on this issue but it will affect the 2016 elections.

Since this thread got moved to illegal immigration, I have to warn you all that unless you actually focus on illegal immigration, it will be closed.
