  •  Obama cannot possibly lose here. (6+ / 0-)

    If immigration reform succeeds and passes, he gets the lion's share of the credit.

    If it doesn't, Republicans get the lion's share of the blame.

    Either way, there will be enough ad-worthy nti-brown people, Ratbagger rhetoric from GOP firebreathers to drive Hispanics and Latinos away for generations.  Because some GOPers will simply be unable to restrain themselves.

    The GOP is simply trapped.  There is no good outcome for them.

    •  Their only option is a split. (1+ / 0-)

      Brooks is correct.  So are you, Dartagnan, as far as the immediate moment is concerned.  A split will eventually work for them but not for several election cycles.
