The Ghost of Eric Cantor

Many in the GOP are complaining about President Obama’s upcoming executive order on immigration.  Some in the party are saying the President should give them a chance to pass their own version of immigration.  If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.

The GOP Congress will not pass immigration reform now, in 6 weeks, in 6 months, or in 6 years.  Why?  Two words for you.  Eric Cantor.

If the House Majority Leader can lose a primary to an unknown over this issue, you can bet your house and ass that no one in the party wants to take this issue up for fear of losing in a primary 18 months from now.   If it can happen to Cantor they all fear it will happen to them.

The GOP leadership is going to complain about Obama acting unilaterally.  Maybe the should direct their complaints at their base who remain the biggest obstacle to this needed reform.
