NBC’s Chuck Todd said on Meet the Press that “the White House doesn’t see a path” to immigration reform.
Given the make-up of the
Insane Asylum House of Representatives, I think that’s right. The GOP senators who supported the just-passed bill went out on a limb for nothing, and it’s a very long drop.
Marco Rubio can still get the GOP nomination in 2016, he’s just going to have to make a fool of himself, as McCain did to get the nod in 2008. McCain had to say that he no longer supported his own immigration bill from 2006. Not exactly a “Profiles in Courage” moment, but the base bought it.
