Republican Hypocrisy, Part III......


Recommended Posts

Here is the third part of a twenty-four part series that highlights blatant republican hypocrisy, describing various policies they supported before America had the unmitigated gall to elect a dark-skinned Democrat POTUS.

 

Hypocrite |ˈhip' əˌkrit| noun

1. A person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion

2. A person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings

 

 

Dream Act

Immigration reform has been touted by Republicans for decades now. Reagan granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants in the 1980′s. Most recently, Republicans worked on immigration reform under the Bush Administration and failed. President Bush and Senator John McCain both supported immigration reform and were willing to cross the aisle to work with Democrats, most notably Edward Kennedy. All of that work and bipartisanship ceased after the 2008 Election. Staunchly opposed to President Obama and anything his administration supports, Republicans turned their backs on immigration reform in favor of militarizing the border and laws that violate the civil rights of Hispanics. Obama’s Dream Act would do much that Reagan would approve of, but Republicans refuse hear anything of it.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Iowa, told reporters Thursday: “The House is going to work its will on immigration. We’re not going to be stampeded by the White House or stampeded by the president. The Senate is working its will. A lot of good work [has] gone on over there. But the House is going to work its will.”

And strike 3.

 

Reagan cut a deal with the Dems to get what he wanted, which was punishment for hiring illegals, and better border control.

 

You make it sound like it was Reagan's idea in the first place.

The Dream Act is not "immigration reform" it IS amnesty.

We learned from Reagan's mistake. Liberals are unable to learn therefore they repeat mistakes over and over.

 

It's amusing to watch a moron like you misstate the facts in order to build your strawmen.

You can't argue facts, so you invent your own.

The Republicans are always changing what they believe or stood for.

 

That's what happens when they lose elections.

And that is just what my series of threads is pointing out. They don't like it, and will blabber incoherently about why they are now against the policies they once supported. When a repub was in the White House, anyways.

I love the way that rebel58 ignores the blatant hypocrisy of Obama.

 

He does what Lenin described. "Promises are like pie crusts, made to be broken."

 

Open and transparent

No red states or blue states

The most honest administration

Close Gitmo

Halt the war in Iraq

In 1 year the unemployment will be 5%

Cut the budget in half the first year

Balance the budget

If you want to keep your doctor and insurance plan you can

Bills on line for days before he signs them

etc.

etc.

etc.

Are there any promises that he has kept.

 

He still uses Bush as a scapegoat. it is 5 years and nothing is his fault.

Hey Rebel as the self-appointed hypocricy police here on the board, and as a keeper of "hispanic civil right" not to mention your role as a "world without borders" advocate let me ask you this: Do you have locks on your front or back doors? Do your parents? (I'm thinking it's the same residence). If so, WHY? Isn't it a bit hypocritical to call for amnesty and open borders while type, type, typing away behind locked doors?
