Ah the dear old Republican party and their base, now throw in immigration reform.


The Right Reverend Erick Erickson snifflles in his corn flakes.

Saying all of that, I am deeply, deeply disturbed by the games being played by pro-immigration advocates on the right, including staff in Senator Marco Rubio’s office, Grover Norquist, and others. loonies

They are attacking other conservatives who disagree with them as racists, slavery supporters, bigots, haters, baby killers, un-Christian, etc. They are waging a coordinated attack between Senator Rubio’s office and others against conservative stalwarts like the Heritage Foundation and Jim DeMint.

He then slightly blew my mind...
They are proposing a plan that thus far appears to be unworkable, is wholly too complicated, and is a distraction from issues that we could all agree on in the name of getting a plan acceptable to Democrats.
Yes, if only the racists, slavery supporters, bigots, and haters could have input.

Then we take a hop over to the wild side...Freepers

Defending God, Country, Liberty also means defending our BORDERS!! Without borders we have no country!! The Gang of Eight are a gang of traitors!! McCain, McGrahamnesty, McRubio, et al, are shameful disgraces to our Senate, to our Rebublic and to our chances of continued Liberty!
Indeed we can come up with a mutually agreeable solution with the Republican base
Exactly! After the muzzie attack in Boston, I’m curious how the libs and RINOs are going to try to justify their open borders and gun grabbing philosophies.
Now Rush Limbaugh chimes in
“I don’t understand why we’re doing something that the Democrats are salivating over,” declared conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh on his Thursday show, adding: “I’m having trouble seeing how this benefits Republicans.”
Shoring up the Latino vote for sure.

Yep, the Republican outreach program is definitely getting to their base.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
