Here are the rhetorical accomplishments this week of one of the biggest “stars” in GOP politics.
On Monday, Paul Ryan joined Luis Gutierrez at a rally in Chicago to promote immigration reform.
“A sweeping immigration bill that would provide a path to legalization for millions of illegal immigrants was introduced in the U.S. Senate last week,” WBEZ reporter Alex Keefe notes. “Gutierrez said he and Ryan are in the process of drafting a House bill.”
According to Keefe, Ryan “stressed that changing the “broken” immigration system goes along with quintessentially Republican ideals. He pointed to his own family’s immigration from Ireland during the Great Famine.”
“I do believe that if there are children who are orphans who do not have a loving person or couple – I think if a person wants to love and raise a child, they ought to be able to do that. Period. I would vote that way. I do believe marriage is between a man and a woman; we just respectfully disagree on that issue,” Ryan said.
It’s funny because Ryan believes that children who were brought here illegally “of no fault of their own” should be given citizenship and welfare. What about the children who are forced to grow up in a licentious, dysfunctional home of no fault of their own?
Online Sales Tax
Paul Ryan now supports the concept of a online sales tax. Aside for some technicalities of the current bill, he has no problems with raising taxes and instituting taxation without representation across state lines.
Folks, we’re in a world of hurt. When do you ever have a prominent Democrat come out one week and evolve on a major issue in favor of conservatives, support massive tax cuts, and join with conservatives on a major right-wing initiative?
There is a reason why we are losing this game. We have no men on the field.
