I'm simply stating that Obama never gave the new Congress a chance to work with him on anything.
No. Brooks says no such thing. He merely says the WH was not privy to GOP discussions. He never once says what the specifics of those discussions were or that legislation was imminent.
Oralloy claimed there was legislation about to be introduced when Obama issued the EO. You are telling us no such legislation would be introduced for at least 2 months and probably longer. It seems you agree with me that no legislation was about to be introduced and passed.
Are you talking about the 2014 election cycle
If the executive order goes down in flames, it might even give Mr. Obama an opportunity to rebuild the bridges that he burned when he issued the executive order, and maybe then he could work with the Republicans to get reform passed while he is still in office. Maybe.
If the Left is not even willing to acknowledge that there are moderate senators willing to work with them on immigration, probably not much hope of them rebuilding bridges with those moderates.
Could you give us the quote from Brooks that says that?
OMg.. the GOP was prevented from introduction legislation 3 years from now!!!
Your claim was they were about to introduce legislation at the time Obama did something. If you want to move the goal posts at least have the honesty to retract your initial statement.
No. Once Mr. Obama leaves office the Republicans will likely try introducing immigration reform legislation again.
No goal posts have been moved. Moderate senators were going to introduce legislation when the GOP took control over the Senate,
as my late mother would have said, you've got quite an imagination
That is Brooks opining about the possibility of future legislation. It says nothing about how far the GOP was in producing the legislation at that time.
Again? Do you know what that word means? There was no first attempt to introduce immigration reform legislation.
Clearly the goal posts were moved. You are now saying the GOP was going to introduce legislation months in the future from when Obama issued the EO.
