View Diary: House Dems confident Boehner will crack on immigration (64 comments)

  •  To crack or not to crack? That is the question ... (0+ / 0-)

    Where if Boehner cracks, he's gone as Speaker (frankly I am amazed he's still there) and - most importantly - the base will be very upset and fractured.

    If he doesn't crack, he gets to keep the title for a bit longer, but the signal is clear to Hispanics (rising in both population and in percentage voting) that demonizing Hispanics to keep the base is all that the GOP cares about, thus giving up any chance of winning the presidency in 2016 (and maybe even pay at next year's congressional elections).
