2014 and the race to be as dumb as the Dems

No balls. No principles.

[...] The GOP looks like it’s going the route of surrender to the left on immigration. Sen. Rand Paul will say today that he will demand security first before any legal status or pathway to citizenship will be available to those who broke and continue to break the law. Security-minded Republicans and independents could be persuaded to support that if it had any chance of passage, but we’ve seen this movie before. He won’t get security first, or at all. Even his filibuster ended with Brennan getting confirmed to head the CIA. The porous, dangerous border is just too useful to too many people for it to be secured in any permanent way. It’s an evergreen, like the minimum wage. Democrats will want it as an issue again in another couple of decades.

Some in the GOP are also looking to make deals on gun control. It’s hard to think of better ways to destroy the party ahead of a solid opportunity to recapture Congress and render President Obama irrelevant for his last two years in office. Maybe they’ll add some tax hikes too, just for grins, and clear the field for Chris Christie ahead of 2016.
