The Game Continues

Looks like the Speaker of the House has wasted no time in making a deal with the devil:

The Speaker made clear that the American people’s top priority remains jobs and the economy.  He reminded the president that there are more than 40 House-passed jobs bills that represent a great place to start on immediate, bipartisan action to help create more private-sector jobs.  He has previously said that building the Keystone pipeline, restoring the 40-hour work week, encouraging our businesses to hire more veterans, and supporting innovative charter schools are examples of the types of common-sense solutions that offer a good starting point in January.

The Speaker warned that unilateral action by the president on executive amnesty will erase any chances of doing immigration reform and will also make it harder for Congress and the White House to work together successfully on other areas where there might otherwise be common ground.

President Obama has expressed interest in a position.  Speaker Boehner is exploiting this by telling him that they can work together or they can work against each other and no one will win.

This is how politics is played out.  If you have an idea or a vision, you will be exploited by other politicians so they can get their way.  It’s really that simple.

The fact is, Boehner wants to grant amnesty just as much as Obama does.  He just wants it to be a Republican victory, not a Democrat one.  He’ll settle for a bipartisan agreement, but only if Republicans are acknowledged in the process, which they rarely are when such agreements are made.

The sad fact is that all those illegals will be legalized and our culture will further erode under the weight of what is essentially Hispanic trailer trash (the middle class and rich of Latin America are staying right where they are).  This is because both party leaders want amnesty to be pushed through, for different reasons, but the end goal is the same.

Our government has little to no regard for what it means to be an American citizen.  They have devalued such a thing and continually look upon us with disdain and contempt.  They view the United States as an opportunity to pillage because they are unable to produce anything themselves.

And so the politics game continues.  Each side will pretend to care about it, but at the end of the day, it’s all about the deal.  And whatever deal is made, we come out on the losing side of it.
