The democrats will bend very little.  They want full amnesty and they want it now.  The Republicans are somewhat divided.  They are pushed by the Chamber of Commerce types who want amnesty so they can benefit from cheap labor while the rest of Americans pick up the tab for the aliens' health care, schooling, crime and income tax credits.  However, more Republicans, and particularly the grass roots, want border enforcement first and thereafter possibly a limited amnesty program.

The Speaker knows that there are enough votes to pass amnesty with the 'rat party and left wing of the GOP establishment.  However, if he sways to amnesty, he likely will ignite a GOP civil war.   It could get quite ugly.

Bend?  Is this a joke?  They don't bend to anything.  They simply tell Boehner what he is to do and he comes up with a game plan to make it appear he isn't in lockstep with them before he "caves." :thud:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

The 'rats don't have to do any "bending" at all.

It's the [so-called] Republicans who are gonna be bendin', dancin', limbo'in' -- and then LYIN' -- about it all to their constituents ---    you and me.

When have the Democrats "bent" on anything with Boehner as Speaker?

Mark Levin had a very interesting phone caller this afternoon. A woman who immigrated - legally - to the USA ten years ago from Brazil. She studied, learned English, took her citizenship classes and became a citizen. When Levin asked how she felt about people coming her illegally and jumping the line she said she doesn't like it at all... which BTW is what the legals here in AZ  say, too.  She went on to say if they want to come to America then act like Americans.. speak English and abide by American traditions.

Ironic how Teddy Roosevelt said the same thing. :patriot:
