POLITICS IN THE BUFF: THE GOP HONEYMOON AFTER RETAKING THE CONGRESS IS OFFICIALLY OVER; PRESIDENT OBAMA TO MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT ON IMMIGRATION IN SPEECH TOMORROW NIGHT
Conservative heads are exploding all over the United States after it was announced that President Obama will deliver a speech to the American citizenry tomorrow night regarding his plans to use executive orders to reshape immigration to the United States. The Republicans have been adamant about not discussing immigration much less passing any immigration legislation. From a purely political standpoint this move by the President to grant a certain level of citizenship status to millions of undocumented immigrants is a multigenerational death shot to the future of the GOP.
While conservatives are dying off and not being replaced the Democrats can depend on several generations of Latinos to support the policies that will make their lives better by allowing them to stay and work in the United States.Even though the electoral politics are clear this is still a bold and legacy building move for President Obama. The successes of ObamaCare now fully cemented in the wounded psyches of the middle class; now comes the greatest act of diversity and compassion toward minorities in America since the Civl and Voting Rights Acts were passed in the late 1960s.
Republicans have already begun to howl and a few to threaten to go back to what they did while they only controlled one house of the Legislative branch- they will double down on being the party of “No!” in all areas outside of this immigration debate. There is very little they can do to undo an executive order; the only recourse for the GOP now is suicide from fear of death. GOP fringe elements from the TEA Party will call for Impeachment for certain now making their faction and the party as a whole easy fodder for those who see these pro-White and White-only bigots for what they are.
Twitter is ablaze with threats from Cruz to block presidential appointees and attach riders to bills to strip the president of his power to grant amnesty in this case. Both of those seemingly nuclear options are dead on arrival. Breitbart News Service is already fanning the flames against a president that never has to run for office again. Their headline Big Government story reads, “Baby Boom of Hispanic, Asian, and Black Children to Make Whites a Minority by 2050.” This is something we know already here on the Progressive side of the debate that is bound to happen and with the conservatives impotent due to their religious beliefs on sex and marriage they have sealed themselves in a box filled with gas fumes and are trying to strike a match.
A child born today will never know what the GOP was and certainly will never have a chance to vote for a GOP candidate. Those twentysomethings now who will drive Progressives into power anew in Congress and the majority state legislatures by 2024 will look back at the start of a historical golden age for Progressives that grew out of defeat that just a few days conservatives were dancing in the streets about. Politics is not a simple game nor is a kind game. Today it appears that the GOP will be retiring from the stage in a decade or so and leaving behind those who can only get elected to the House in the least diverse and backward districts in America.
