I think there are two topics in the President agenda that Republicans will not be able to ignore and will have to take a position, because I do believe that Obama will push those till they are solved: Immigration and gay rights. And unfortunately, since they will have to compromise somehow to these two topics, they will search for other people to attack. Republicans need to promote hate so they can mobilize the right wing nuts, there will be always a group of people that will be the target of the moment.

In a general way I do like politics, but the politics I have been seen lately is disgusting.

I doubt they consider the forays reasonable..just politically expedient. IMHO? Too little too late..

Old Repub WG are dinosaurs...they just don't know they are extinct. These forays into reasonable thinking are probably just a dying gasp.

Actually, I do love politics..it's a great spectator sport..it contains comedy, tragedy, hypocrisy, truth and lies..like any good theater production. Of course it also messes with real human beings, which is less endearing. .

Are we surprised at the about face on immigration? No..but I remain surprised thaat so many states are continuing their attacks on women's privacy, medical care and equality.Hello? GOP? That cost you votes too!! SDo you suppose they will try a last ditch save on that one too? By dealing fairly with immigrant women and native american women and fully supporting VAWA or something?

To steal a line from Alanis Morissette.

Republican's are finally waking up to the fact "old, white guys" only have so much time left on this earth. After losing the last election and losing the Hispanic vote due to conservative intolerance they now want to tackle illegal immigration Which will include a path to citizenship.

I wonder how many generations it will take for Hispanics to "forgive and forget?"

It was just a few months ago that the RNC drafted their platform which "absolutely" opposed any form of amnesty. I guess they will find a new term so they can claim adherence.

Don't you just love politics?
