The fear-mongering continues at Fox News because it's what they do best. Bill O'Reilly cautions that President Obama will become more radical in the lame duck period of his second term. What does the newly acquired GOP Senate majority mean for the immigration debate? Who better to interpret the results of the Midterms than ex-Fox News media star, Glenn Beck.
Glenn Beck claims President Obama is disconnected from the American people AND the Democrats. He basis this finding on his press conference, because he didn't grovel and plead with sociopaths on the right for their cooperation and respect.
So this is a dangerous time for America, where the country will be torn in half over the immigration reform debate. The U.S. will be a divided country, the likes of which we haven't seen since the Civil War. Glenny says, “He is going to super-serve the uber-left, and the Republicans are not prepared for this. They’re playing politics circa 1975,” Beck said. But the two disagree on whether the president, will be impeached if he decides to act "unilaterally" on immigration.
This Republican Senate now has some of the fringiest folks from the far right. Senate victors Joni Ernst (IA), Cory Gardner (CO), Thom Tillis (NC) and Ben Sasse (NE) (to name a few) are certainly going to align with Ted Cruz. Thus they will not budge one inch on immigration amnesty and Beck believes this Congressional division will eventually punish the GOP.
Smugly as always, Bill-O believes the arrogant president will face impeachment hearings if he acts on immigration without support from the Teabag Senate. Glenn Beck, in a moment of clarity, stresses the importance of appealing to immigrants in a nation whose population is drifting towards a non-white majority. Beck claims Facebook CEO and founder, Mark Zuckerberg, will automatically launch a lethal campaign against Republicans if they resist efforts to reform our immigration policy.
Beck is actually correct in his prediction. Marriage equality is as inevitable as immigration reform, period. Even before the middle of this century, America will not be the same white majority country the GOP reminisces about. This election does not mean the Republicans can sit back and cruise to victory in the Executive Branch.
In 2016, it won’t be red state Democrats, but blue state Republicans who will be on the ballot fighting for their seats. Republicans won’t have Obama to blame anymore. The GOP will be held accountable by a bigger electorate.
Beck can see this, but the over-confident O'Reilly will need, as Ernst says, 'proven proof' to alter his thinking. Arrogantly, O'Reilly mocks the president's pen and claims his phone is useless as no one is calling him. He forgets that we should never count President Obama out, as he is smart like a fox and often beats the GOP at their own game.
