    Its simple moral relativism and it shouldn't be surprising coming from the left. Its part of their pathos. It allows them to make false equivalencies, engage in hypocrisy and utilize pretzel logic to defend their indefensible positions. Silly season, really.

    Doing what your enemy does, because they did it, is the foundation of hypocrisy.

    Your position could not be any more abhorrent.

    GOP immigration position currently enjoys about 2/3rds support. Putting the GOP in charge of the Senate allows them to prep 2016 by forcing Obama to veto every single item that Republicans have that have a broad support base, but which would divide portions of the Democrat base.

    You could not ask for a better formula for Democratic success in 2016.
    yeah, good luck with that.

    Regardless of the reason for delaying action, I think it was the correct decision. Something like immigration reform needs to be done in congress. We have immigration laws on the books that aren't begin enforced and even changed by EO, I think this was a wise decision.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    We have some pretty good Immigration Law. The problem is that our Executive refuses to enforce it.

    repealing the various civil rights laws from the 1960's would fit the bill.

    smashing the unions and making the whole damn country right to work cheaper if they can find a way to do that - probably getting rid of the NLRB.

    getting rid of choice for women.

    thats just for a start.
    Thanks for confirming that you were eluding to the usual Libbo fearmongering.

    That shows how bankrupt your position is that you have to invoke the fallacy of Argumentum ad Populum to try and give your own grudge against me some gravitas.
