RUSH: Why isn’t GOP using border episode to prove the need to secure the border and defeat amnesty?

Rush presented a question that not only tops Boehner's, but should also be answered by the Speaker and the Republican leadership...
"I want to go back to the call that we just had from Chris in Charleston, South Carolina, because there’s a larger question that he was actually addressing. What he really wanted to know, why don’t the Republicans go find Bernadette Lancelin in Houston? By the way, we’re working on that. We have to edit it for our broadcast purposes. Not the substance, just get rid of some of the fluff so it doesn’t take 10 minutes to listen to. I’ll have it for you here in mere moments. But he wanted to know, why don’t the Republicans go down there and lasso this woman, bring her to Washington, do a public event with her, and tell her that the Republican Party has the answers to the questions that she was asking.

Now, here’s the sad, I gotta hit you between the eyes with it, what it really meant. His suggestion, the fact that he even had to suggest it, is very troubling. Because the larger question that his idea exposes is this. We have a humanitarian crisis. We have, just since April, 240,000, maybe 300,000, conflicting numbers, but we’re talking about rounding errors now. Just since April 240,000 to 300,000 illegals have flooded the border, and of those, 55,000 are children. Why aren’t the Republicans using this episode to prove the need to secure the border and defeat amnesty? That’s the question he was really asking.

And let me ask you another question. Have you heard anybody in the Republican leadership — you’ve heard Cruz, and you have heard a couple others — but have you heard anybody in the Republican leadership even try to turn this issue into a political advantage for the Republican Party? It’s a sad reality, folks. Apparently what is happening in this humanitarian crisis is, in and of itself, not even enough for the Republican Party to try to draw distinction between itself and the Democrat Party with. That is just amazing to me!"

"The larger question is, why aren't the Republicans using this to prove the need to secure the border? Why aren't the Republicans seeking a political advantage in this issue by drawing a distinction between themselves and the Democrats? That question is something, ladies and gentlemen, that we've been asking ever since Obama came into office.

We've never had a greater opportunity in the last six years to contrast who we are with the extremes of liberalism. This is it. We don't have to tell people any longer what will happen if these people end up with unchecked power. Twenty-five years of this program, and I've been warning people what's gonna happen if liberals win here and win there, what we're gonna get. It's no longer a warning. We are living it. And as such, no greater opportunity to draw the distinction, to contrast ourselves to the Democrats. But there isn't any of that happening. And it is an election year."
Well, Speaker? 'Compassionate conservatism' isn't cutting it anymore. In this instance, among many others, it's ripping our national sovereignty and the fabric of American culture apart. Oh, and btw, none of that's more than the 'compassionate' adjective in front of that all-too-often misused word.

Also, it's time to rediscover loyalty to the citizenry that put you in office...instead of lying down to the Chamber of Commerce's money that bought it, which Rush also addressed...
"I do know why the Republicans are not making a big deal out of this, the border, because they want amnesty. We know this. The Chamber of Commerce is holding 'em hostage. This Tom Donohue guy that runs the Chamber of Commerce has basically told them if they don't do amnesty they may as well not even nominate a presidential candidate for 2016, because there isn't a Republican that's gonna get a dime of donor money if they don't do amnesty. And make no mistake, money is the primary influence in politics."
