RUSH: Mitt Romney: If the Republicans win the Senate, we’ll get amnesty, and he is happy about it. If Republicans win the Senate, we’re gonna get amnesty! (clapping) He’s clapping his hands. You want to hear it? Grab audio sound bite 15. Sunday morning, Fox News Sunday. Chris Wallace said, “The Senate, on a bipartisan basis, passed comprehensive immigration reform. House Republicans blocked it. So what?”
ROMNEY: You’re gonna see a provision, first of all, to secure the border; second of all, to deal with those who’ve come here illegally; and third, to make sure that our immigration policies are more open and transparent to the many people who do want to come here legally. That’s gonna happen. You’re gonna see a bill actually reach the desk of the president if we finally have someone besides Harry Reid sitting in the Senate.
RUSH: He said it; you heard it. The establishment Republicans must actually believe that we’re all chomping at the bit for the president finally to get a comprehensive immigration bill he could sign. They must think we really, really want this. They must think we’re really frustrated out here. They must think that we want to win the Senate so that we can get an immigration bill — which, of course, secures the border first.
Right, right, right, right, right.
There’s other news about all of that and that kind of thing. I’ve got a whole Stack. Polling data… I don’t want to tease it. I’ll just get to it. But you’ll… (interruption) After all that good news, I had to do it, because that sets up what’s coming next. Heads up. The Republicans are running around… This is in Politico. But the Republicans are the source.
The Republicans are running around saying (summarized), “If we win, if Mitch McConnell wins and if all these establishment Republicans win, that means Republican Party is casting aside the Tea Party. That means mainline, Republican establishment, moderate policies are what Republican voters want.” That’s what they’re setting up to say.
