Bush-43, advocates hope to sway House GOP on immigration--conservatives may resist, rejecting Senate bill's citizenship path--from the Chicago Tribune's Washington Bureau

Re: Which wing of the GOP House will emerge victorious with the Senate Immigration Bi

Former President Bush, with Laura Bush, will preside over a ceremony Monday for new U.S.citizens at his library in Dallas. In a keynote address to mark the center's first major policy event, Bush will argue that overhauling the Nation's laws will be good for the Country. A panel discussion, "What Immigrants Contribute," will follow.

Obviously, what the GOP does or doesn't do on immigration will affect the GOP's future success, or lack of a future, or success.

The advice given by those who would never vote for a GOP candidate never ceases to amaze...

Re: Which wing of the GOP House will emerge victorious with the Senate Immigration Bi

I continue to vote for GOP candidates, but not McCain or Romney. I could easily vote for the other Bush or Christie, common-sense Repubs who work with the Dems and still believe in the old GOP of Ford, a party of ideas. Some here simply cannot put aside their snark.

So, as along as they have no real convictions, you have no issue voting for a Repub. Amazing...

I voted for Reagan, and G.H.W.Bush.

Re: Which wing of the GOP House will emerge victorious with the Senate Immigration Bi

Here's another quote from the article. "There's a large majority that could support reform and is either inclined YO or undecided, and that's where our efforts are most focused."

Any representative supporting the Senate's reform measure will lose in 2014...

Christie has forgotten more about convictions than you and your partisan saboteurs ever knew. Accusing one of no real convictions is against DP rules for at least one very good reason. It is why the GOP House has this Country in the out-house.

The members of the House were elected by your so called saboteurs, the citizens of their districts. Why would you want to disparage them?

It was a rather broad question, but I'm sure you must have some thoughts...

Re: Which wing of the GOP House will emerge victorious with the Senate Immigration Bi

I would have voted for Huntsman in this last election. Would I have been right? I like Huntsman's apparent intellect but then again, I thought I saw that in Obama 2008 and he turned out to be much less of an intellectual and more of a politician.

In a few non-partisan words, can anyone remind me of why Bush's immigration plan failed to win support? I honestly can't remember.

Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour and former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff will tell conservatives next week in Houston that immigration reform is important for National Security.

Who will win the GOP civil war, the dividers or the combiners?

I don't see anyone on the GOP side who I believe is likely to be elected President of the USA any time soon.

Immigration control yes, but not amnesty for those here illegally...

The question was not confined to the Presidency. Any elected federal office will do..

I disparaged your reps, not your voters. You continue to B/F/T in violation of DP rules. Are you trying to derail my thread? Are you at all interested in solving immigration or just stalling, your MO everyone on DP is keenly aware of?

it would be difficult for you to criticize members of the House without involving those that were responsible for their election. I have no interest in derailing your thread, but your fixation on my opposition to your ideas is doing more than I would even attempt...

If you stipulate "not Christie" and "a fed position"....that kind of narrows it down a bit.

But go on, try to save face.....this is funny.
