RUSH: Look at 2010. That’s a Tea Party landslide, midterm congressional victory that the Republican Party didn’t do squat to win. The 2010 midterms. (interruption) Mmm-hmm. (interruption) Well, I know I’ve said that. I have proffered the possibility that the Republicans may indeed…
This is something I think that has to be considered.
The Republican establishment may in fact be so desirous of getting rid of the Tea Party as its base, they may be willing to lose some elections in order to get rid of their base and put up a new base. Now, Pelosi is out there saying… I don’t know this happened or not. Pelosi is saying that Boehner told her to wait until next year for amnesty. They’re not gotta be able to get to it this year. Boehner told her to be patient and wait.
That’s what she is saying. I just saw it on the Drudge Report, that Pelosi is saying that Boehner told her they’re gonna do “immigration” next year. “Amnesty” was not used. The word “amnesty” was not used. “Immigration” will be done next year. Now, Boehner has to know that the base doesn’t want any part of it. Why would they do it, then? You can’t eliminate the role that money is playing in that, either. Donor dollars. You cann’t! You know it as well as I do.
