Video: Paul Ryan’s Incoherent defense of Amnesty

When it comes to the immigration debate, the Republican Party establishment obviously wants Senators and Congressmen who are perceived as conservatives to be at the tip of the spear in the debate. In the Senate, that person is Marco Rubio, who has been taking an increasing amount of heat from the base over his inexplicable position in support of the Senate’s ‘Gang of 8’ bill.

Rubio’s counterpart in the House appears to be Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), who has developed a reputation of being a young conservative who tends to side with the establishment when push comes to shove.

In an exchange with Sean Hannity, Ryan comes across as incoherent in response to a simple question from Hannity, who simply wants to know why border security can’t be enforced before anything else is done. Ryan embarrassingly asserts something as a truism without backing it up, saying that the border can’t be secured without granting amnesty.

Huh?

Unfortunately, Hannity, who didn’t call Ryan out on that ridiculous assertion, was more than just a little tepid in challenging the congressman. Ryan even conceded that he’s worried Republicans like him risk further dividing his party.

Huh? If you’re worried about that, why are you doing what you’re doing, Congressman?

    This matter has become a voting issue. Mainstream Republicans are terrified of being totally defeated once the illegals are given “amnesty.” Those who may be conservative in the financial aspect of things have defected to the leftest ideal concerning social issues. They have also rolled over on the issues of gay marriage, and legalizing pot. They are gutless wonders that need to be rooted out of the Republican Party.
    Rubio has got to be the worst of all traitors in this matter. He used the Tea Party to get elected and then turned on them as soon as he got in office. He has accomplished nothing for conservatives and is now rolling over for the Democratic Party without even getting border security. He should go down in history with Benedict Arnold.
    Ryan seems to be going over to the enemy’s camp as well. Maybe the NSA has collected enough information on conservatives to control the whole country.
