Hannity: I've 'evolved' on
immigration and support
a 'pathway to citizenship'

Politico, by MacKenzie Weinger

Original Article

Posted By:Blackeagle, 11/9/2012 1:33:08 AM

Sean Hannity said Thursday he has “evolved” on immigration and now supports a “pathway to citizenship.” Hannity told his radio listeners Thursday afternoon that the United States needs to “get rid of the immigration issue altogether.” “It’s simple to me to fix it,” Hannity said. “I think you control the border first. You create a pathway for those people that are here — you don’t say you’ve got to go home. And that is a position that I’ve evolved on. Because, you know what, it’s got to be resolved. The majority of people here, if some people have criminal records you can send them home,

Sometimes this guy really ticks me off! Someone sneaks into Hannity's home and after a few years of hiding in Hannity's home that sneak can claim home ownership of Hannity's home? Huh? THAT'S how it works?

What a stupid remark. How about the people waiting their turn and doing it the right way. Cut all federal benefits for illegals and they would have to go home. What is so difficult about that???

What he is saying and I don't know why is let the illegals stay here. One world government as well as our current leaders need them until they become useless idiots. Then they will return to slavery.

By acting more like Democrats we're going to get more votes?
I was glad when Hannity & Colmes became just Hannity.

Dubya was trying to take care of this in 2005 when he had both houses of Congress. We could have done something then on our terms and be heroes to the Latinos right now. Maybe McCain would have won in 2008 with Latino support and we wouldn't have POTUS Obama today.

And most called GWB stupid?

DH stopped listening to Can-it-ty sometime back. Can not stand his ego or his kiss rump romps. Now Sean and his steady Bob Beckel can join in a chris/baRoke embrace and go on their merry way.

Perhaps the two can attend Spanish class together and cheat in order to pass. Latino votes or not, the pubbies must find a new base to stay afloat. Perhaps they should begin to start lifing a few rocks or learn to dig.

Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. (our Founding Father, John Adams)

Not only are our citizens lacking in these traits of character, our 'leaders' lack as well.

We don't talk about all the illegals here until the borders are sealed! Because we don't need another 60 million of them here like the last time amnesty was granted with nothing being done about the borders.

Hannity never strikes me as the sharpest can-opener in the drawer.

He's had a lot of success, has lots of listeners, makes a bundle, good for him. Which has what to do with the price of eggs?

Here's the question -- do we support the rule of law or not? That's the only question. I therefore won't go into self-deportation, pathways [hey -- there is one!], or anything else.

People violate the laws against murder all the time too. Gonna advocate repealing them, Sean? After all, they obviously don't work either.

Part of the ush fr amnesty is coming from the chamber of commerce,otherwise a solid right wing group. The reason is simple,Ameicans are too lazy to work anymore,so they want hispanics. The problem is,once they become citizens,there's no reason to pick crops any more and they'll blend in with the rest of lazy Americas.

Was watching something on farmers in Alabama last year complaining they has no one to pick crops.It was possible to make $500 a day.Hard work,hot sun,sure but 500 a day is 500 a day and they're weren't any white azz Americans out there. Forget about blacks picking crop regardless of the money.

If i was in my early 20's,I wouldn't have a problem picking crops for $500 a day. Hard work is good for the soul.Besides I could work on my tan.

If this had been Rush Limbaugh, we would've known he was just engaging in satire ... particularly by using the word, "evolved" (to mock Obama's "evolving" on "gay" marriage).

But Hannity? No, no satire here. He is really caving in.

Immigration reform will turn NV, AZ, FL, and CO permanently blue. At that point elections will not matter. If we must cave on something lets make it taxes. Lets soak the rich liberals, Obama's base, all the Rats to destroy the economy and then see how good fundraising and turnout go in 2014. A depression may be the only thing that can save this country. I will be boycotting Hannity's radio show from this point forward. (Never watched his TV show). Please join me. The guy has grown extravagantly wealthy off of bring wrong, wrong, wrong.

If the Republicans go along with what the liberal Democrats refer to as "a path to citizenship" amnesty for 12-20 million illegal aliens, who would then gain a legal right to bring additional millions of their foreign family members into the USA, they would be committing long-term political suicide by handing the liberal Democrats many millions of future new ethnic voters.

Most illegal aliens are poor people who earn low wages when they can find work and have large families. Once legalized that would become eligible to participate in the entire US social welfare net and human nature tells you that they would do so big time.

"A path to citizenship" is liberal Democrat code speak for eventually granting just about all illegal aliens duel nationality status with US voting rights. The liberal Democrats would not be for that if they thought that more then a very small percentage of such new voters would ever have an epiphany and vote for conservative Republicans.

The liberal Democrats will always out bid the Republicans for those votes, if the Republicans go along with amnesty, the liberal Democrats would throw in affirmative action, and making it easier for legalized aliens to purchase homes that they can't afford, claim that that they will pass special provisions for their children to go to college, and to change the immigration laws so that their more distant relatives can come here. We could go on and on, but that's just common sense.

No one who has entered this country illegally should ever be granted more than legal residence. If they really want citizenship, they should leave the country and go through the legal procedures to reenter. And anyone not in this country the day this legislation is passed is ineligible. Finally, serious border control should also begin that day.

When the rule of law no longer matters to Republicans, they become Democrat-lite. This issue is vitally important to the future of our nation and not something to back down from. Hannity has become a blueblood republican.

Hannity (and some of you) may be too young to remember, BUT WE TRIED THIS UNDER REAGAN.

We were promised just what we are promised now: that after amnesty the government would act to stop illegal immigration.

Why were we dumb enough to fall for that then, and apparently dumb enough to fall for it now? Some people have short memories.

Record turnout in Crimea referendum

Voter turnout in Crimea’s referendum on reuniting with Russia on Sunday broke all previous records for the region, officials said. Seventy per cent of Crimea’s 1.5 million voters cast their ballots by 17 p.m. local time, three hours before the polling stations were to close.(snip)Surveys ahead of the vote showed that about 80 percent of Crimeans favoured reunification with Russia. Crimea was part of Russia till 1954 when then Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev signed it off to Ukraine. Medjlis of Crimean Tatars denounced the referendum as illegal and called for its boycott.

San Diego – After Latino voters helped re-elect President Obama — delivering the battleground states of Nevada and Colorado, and contributing to the victories in Florida and Virginia — a consensus quickly emerged among pundits and political observers that the quid pro quo would include comprehensive immigration reform. (Snip) So why don’t Democrats want comprehensive-immigration reform? For the same five reasons that Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid teamed up in 2006 and 2007 with the nativist wing of the Republican Party to kill bipartisan bills and, in 2010, helped scuttle the

FORT PIERCE -— A county canvassing board on Friday ordered a recount of early-voting ballots in the race between U.S. Rep. Allen West and Democrat Patrick Murphy, hours after a judge declined to do the same. The St. Lucie County Canvassing Board voted 2-to-1 late Friday in favor of the move in the 18th Congressional District contest, in which Murphy is the unofficial victor. A series of tabulation errors by the county has raised suspicion among West´s campaign and its supporters and appeared to motivate the board´s favorable vote.

Liberals brag about having won the hearts and minds of America, as if, through logic and argument, they’ve persuaded people to accept their bankrupt European socialist ideas. Democrats haven’t changed anyone’s mind. They changed the people. More white people voted for Mitt Romney this year than voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980. Barack Obama lost white voters by 20 points — the widest margin since 1984. But in 1980, whites were 88 percent of the electorate. In 2012, they were 72 percent of the electorate.

Speaker John Boehner said Thursday he was "confident" Republicans could agree to a comprehensive immigration bill. Boehner (R-Ohio) made the comment in an interview with ABC News released two days after President Obama's decisive reelection victory over Mitt Romney. Obama's win was fueled by Hispanic voters, who made up a larger portion of the electorate than they did four years ago and voted overwhelmingly for Obama. The president won Latino voters by 44 points, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. The defeat and those figures have triggered a round of soul-searching by

Michigan voters pulled the plug on a proposed constitutional amendment that would have required Michigan's utilities to provide 25 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2025. With most precincts reporting, 63 percent of voters opposed the measure.(snip)Proposal 3 represented a doubling-down on renewable energy after state legislators voted in 2008 to reach a 15 percent standard by 2015. Those backing the ballot measure claimed the new standard would not only accelerate Michigan's move away from environmentally-damaging fossil fuels, but create jobs and investment from the construction and maintenance of wind turbines.

Arkansas Republicans on Tuesday night took control of at least one chamber of the state legislature and captured all of the state's congressional seats for the first time since Reconstruction. Republicans took the majority in the state Senate and will either have a one seat majority or be tied with Democrats in the state House of Representatives, according to election returns. For decades, Arkansas has been a rare dot of Democratic blue amid Republican red across the legislatures of the South. Until Tuesday's elections, it was the only state in the South where both chambers of the legislature were controlled by Democrats.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

"There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters.
