    Hannity: I've 'evolved' on immigration and support a 'pathway to citizenship'

    Source: Politico

    Sean Hannity said Thursday he has “evolved” on immigration and now supports a “pathway to citizenship.”

    Hannity told his radio listeners Thursday afternoon that the United States needs to “get rid of the immigration issue altogether.”

    “It’s simple to me to fix it,” Hannity said. “I think you control the border first. You create a pathway for those people that are here — you don’t say you’ve got to go home. And that is a position that I’ve evolved on. Because, you know what, it’s got to be resolved. The majority of people here, if some people have criminal records you can send them home, but if people are here, law-abiding, participating for years, their kids are born here, you know, first secure the border, pathway to citizenship, done.”

    I can't decide how I feel about this. If something gets done on immigration, great! But could it be any more obvious that this is a vote-grab for the GOP? I don't trust them not to do something evil.

    Doesn't matter if it's just a vote grab, anything that moderates the right wing extremism that has taken over the GOP has to be a good thing. Doesn't it?

    I appreciate you cynicism, but isn't that what politics are all about? Grabbing votes? If they come around on immigration, who cares what there motivation is? This is basically the basis of my other thread. The Republicans need to change.

    But I'll up your ante. I think they'll try and do as little as they can to become more relevant. If they can come around on immigration a bit and close the gap on Latinos, then they'll feel like they can continue to clamp down on gays and choice.

    So it looks like Mitt Romney's ability to evolve has rubbed off on Hannity

    Krauthammer also expressed a similar sentiment.

    There's been a quick decision made to dump old bigot tea party extremist types in favor of brown people.

    Democracy at work, folks. Gotta love it.

    Hannity's just a pundit. Has this come before the GOP they actually elected?
    "I love both Dan and Wendy. I love those guys. They work so hard. The center-quarterback relationship is a pretty special one. I've got my hands on their butts probably more than their wives, so it's a pretty unique trust and relationship you have."

    Re: In 48hrs Knuckledragger Hannity Evolves Bi-pedal Position on Immigration

    The GOP has lost so much ground that they have to do SOMETHING differently to win over a large group of voters. They can't afford to cede the Latino vote to the Democrats and the only way they are going to get the vote is by softening their stance on immigration. If they could actually pass a pathway to citizenship through the House, that could be enough to win over a bunch of new voters.

    I read somewhere (maybe someone posted it here) that it has reached the point where the GOP ceiling on electoral votes is 286, meaning if they win every swing states plus all the red states, 286 is the most they could get. That basically means no margin of error. They will have to win Florida every 4 years, plus two out of the three of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. That's damn near impossible, unless they get a really great candidate while the Democrats put up a Mondale-esque dud. If they don't find some way to fix this in 4 years, they are in trouble. Appealing to Latino voters is step 1 and it sounds like they aren't wasting any time. They want to get this done and they want people to think it was a GOP idea (even though Democrats have been talking about this for some time).

    It looks like a full pitch attack to pander for Juan’s burrito.

    Rupert Murdoch and Boehner have chimed in.

    Lou Dobbs might reveal he has secret Mexican love children tonight on TMZ. Stay tuned.



    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...ration-reform/

    Wonkbook: Game change? Hannity, Murdoch and Boehner come out for immigration reform
    Boehner is ‘confident’ of a deal on immigration. ”Fresh off an election in which Hispanic voters largely sided with Democrats, Speaker John A. Boehner said Thursday that he was ‘confident’ Congress and the White House could come up with a comprehensive immigration solution. Immigration reform is ‘an important issue that I think ought to be dealt with,’ Mr. Boehner, an Ohio Republican, said in an interview with Diane Sawyer on ‘ABC World News.’ ‘This issue has been around far too long,’ he said, ‘and while I believe it’s important for us to secure our borders and to enforce our laws, I think a comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I’m confident that the president, myself, others, can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all.’” Jennifer Steinhauer in The New York Times.


    @rupertmurdoch: Must have sweeping, generous immigration reform,make existing law- abiding Hispanics welcome. Most are hard working family people.

    The beautiful thing is that when they do pass some decent immigration reform, like the Dream Act, it will be Obama who gets most of the credit, like most presidents do.

    It only further secures his legacy, as it should, because without his victory the R's would never be broaching this issue!!!

    The GOP has already purchased the Rosetta Stone Spanish software via Paypal and opted for 2 day shipping right to Condaleeza Rice's front door.

    Well I thought they'd just try to get Rush on board with their ideas.

    Apparently they are coming to realize what most of us have known all along that he is just a racist POS he is, so instead it looks like they are going to war with him. Thank you God!!!

    Sean Hannity is a pundit. Now, if this becomes the position of the republican party, it means they are paying attention. This is how democracy works. You want votes? Represent our best interests.
