Buchanan: Whom The Gods Would Destroy . . .
Next year should be a banner year for the GOP, and may yet be […] But if the GOP is favored to hold the House and make gains in the Senate, the long-term prognosis for the party remains grim,” says Pat Buchanan.
“On how to deal with 12 million illegal aliens—send them home or grant them amnesty and a “path to citizenship”—the party’s rancorous division will be starkly visible when the bill reaches the House.

Eberle – Are Conservatives Ready to Revolt Over Immigration?
“The Senate has been debating so-called immigration reform for quite a while, and now the House of Representatives is about to get into the action.

“Is Boehner in trouble? Is it time for him to go? If the Republicans endorse a bill that doesn’t focus on the REAL problem (border security) and instead panders to the next great voting bloc, we are all in serious trouble. We can’t beat the Democrats with pandering since they can and will always offer more taxpayer-funded handouts. We must stand on principle, and it appears Boehner’s job may be hinging on it.”
