Lest there be any misunderstanding, I favor immigration reform, under the general outlines that have been proposed both by President Obama and the recent bipartisan committee in the US Senate. After a shellacking at the polls, Republicans now seem ready to join in resolving an array of issues. Still, I'm less interested in discussing this consensus than factors that the public may not know about.
“Perhaps congressfolk will acquire a taste for it.”
Don’t count on that; and think what will happen three years from now: a Republican primary in New Hampshire to start nominating the next Bushclone presidential candidate. The GOP ticket has a better chance of winning in 2016 than they did in 2012 because the public may want to rotate parties after eight years. Then around ‘n round we go.
There’s always a hell to go through.
