Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

GOP HEAD SORT OF PROMISES TO SUPPORT CIR

Rate this Entry
Our friendly anti Jack has provided in the comments a couple of links to an intriguing story regarding Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele (currently embroiled in another scandal - this time involving strippers and GOP money - oy!). Steele has been one of the moderate voices in the GOP when it comes to immigration reform in the past and apparently he met with a pro-reform group called the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM). Accounts differ regarding whether Steele promised to work for immigration reform and, more specifically, help round up a second GOP Senator to sponsor the reform bill along with South Carolinian Lindsey Graham. Steele said later that he did not make such a promise. According to the Wall Street Journal, witnesses differ regarding whether the promise was, in fact, made. One attendee of the meeting says that Steele made the promise and then when an RNC official warned him about the repercussions of the statement, Steele backtracked and said he could not get ahead of his party leadership.

    This statement right here speaks volumes about the GOP's commitment to immigration reform. No need to read between the lines!!!

    Who's the RNC official? Rush Limbaugh?

    Did he made the warning all the way from Costa Rica?

    Oh wait.. he did not fulfilled his promise of going to Costa Rica if HCR passes.

    RNC Chief of Staff McKay resigns w/c then led to one of Steele's closest advisers to cut ties with the party.

    The resignation is said to be a result of the use of RNC funds for spending $2,000 in a CA strip club.

    Meanwhile, RNC Chairman Steele said 1 day prior that he is not going anywhere.

    Seems to me they are imploding.

    I guess Dem strategists saying that it won't be Armageddon at the Nov. elections have a point to say those things after all.
