    Limbaugh: Itís Up To Me And Fox News To Stop Amnesty

    Conservative talk radio personality Rush Limbaugh said on his show Monday that it was up to himself and the Fox News network to stop a bipartisan effort to pass immigration reform which would create a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. "It's up to me and Fox News," Limbaugh said, "and I don't think Fox News is that invested in this."
    He continued: "I don't think there's any Republican opposition to this of any majority consequence or size. We'll have to wait and see and find out. But this is one of those, just keep plugging away, plugging away, plugging away until you finally beat down the opposition."

    I'm not sure what's funnier, Rush's bloated opinion as to his own importance, or his reliance on a network that professes to be "fair and balanced" on all issues..

    Thanks for the giggles Rush.

    No one is going to stop amnesty. The question is merely: How tough is the path?

    Yes of course. Because we all know rush would never say such things and mean them.

    The right wing apologists continue to set the land speed record defending this moron.

    Fail indeed.

    When you read Rush's comments in their full context, you see what he really meant.

    Anyway, one of Marco Rubio's points, folks, essentially is that Obama's already given us de facto amnesty anyway. He did it with the children of illegal immigrants via the executive order back last year. It was prior to the election. I mean, thanks to Obama you have amnesty unless you get convicted of a major felony. So I don't know that there's any stopping this. It's up to me and Fox News, and I don't think Fox News is that invested in this. I don't think there's any Republican opposition to this of any majority consequence or size. We'll have to wait and see and find out. But this is one of those, just keep plugging away, plugging away, plugging away until you finally beat down the opposition.
    Yes...fail!

    Rush is on his own. The GOP is starting to smell the coffee with that last election; there is a new voter out there that is different than the one 60 some years ago.

    Context sure helps. I wish it was more popular.

    I consider Limbaugh to be a huge bag of wind but the bolded portion is correct. Add to that the Republicans slow dawning of the necessity of agreeing if they want to remain politically rlevant. So, it's a done deal and all that is being worked on are the details and how to funnel some profits to the connected ones overseeing this.

    Nonsense. With 11 million illegal aliens ALREADY here, why one earth do we need low skilled "guest workers"? This entire thing is a SCAM. The only reason republicants are "on board" is to prevent the demorats from getting the hispanic vote. As usual it will be said to be "contingent" upon... and eventually provide a "path to citizenship" - EXACTLY what each prior amnesty said that would happen. Each prior amnesty said secure borders and "absolute" penalties for those hiring illegal aliens. At least Fox News is honest when they show the lines of "day laborers" standing outside of Home Depot when they mentioned "low skilled" labor. The US needs to wake up! The last thing we need with 15% already on welfare, is more "low skilled" labor in each city, county and state in the US being brought in from Canada.

    easy - its his own inflated opinion of his own powers.

    Limbaugh reminds me of two women I was standing behind in a gas station a few weeks ago. The weather forecast was rather dire and - as normal - everybody with a car rushed to the gas station to fill up in preparation for being snowed in. Two women were ahead of me in line and one said to the other "we are suppose to get eight to ten inches tonight." Without batting an eyelash the other one replied... "they always tell you eight to ten inches and it always ends up half of that."

    The Amnesty that Bush,McCain and Kennedy proposed was stopped, It was done with the aid of anti-illegal immigration groups like Numbersusa. So this one can be stopped too.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
