  •  They were united in their hate for Pres Obama... (4+ / 0-)

    Now that Pres Obama has been re-elected and has ran in his last race they can't really use him to gin up their base anymore.  GOP knows it needs comprehensive immigration reform because they got killed with the Latino demographic and feel that getting such reform passed and out of the way they could then try to reach out to the Latino community a new without far right immigration fearmongering being a huge wedge issue.  

    Also Kristol, Shameless, and Graham are MIC stoolies before Norquist puppets - with the triggered cuts to DoD coming they are siding with the MIC interests who are saying - raise the bloody taxes on rich if you can trade it for no DoD cuts.  

    I suspect we will see extensive loopholes closing and deductions chopped for the rich but no official percentage increase and the triggered cuts will be cancelled across the board.  

    They have the billionaires, We have the Big Dog!

      It's still great fundraising to tell ghost stories about the atheist gay Muslim Nazi Communist. Also, remember how McCain got the albatross around his neck of being accused of being Bush III?
