Now that a federal judge has held Obama's illegal executive amnesty unconstitutional, perhaps U.S. senators will remember that they swore to uphold the Constitution, too.

Back when they needed our votes before the last election, Republicans were hairy-chested warriors, vowing to block Obama's unconstitutional "executive amnesty" -- if only voters gave them a Senate majority. The resulting Republican landslide suggested some opposition to amnesty.

Heading into the election, college professor Dave Brat took out the sitting House majority leader and amnesty supporter Eric Cantor in a primary, despite being outspent 40-1. It was the greatest upset in history since the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" at the Lake Placid Olympics: Never before has a House majority leader been defeated in a primary. And Brat did it by an astonishing 55.5 percent to 45.5 percent.

Again, the voters seemed to be expressing disquiet with amnesty.

After that, even amnesty-supporting Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., was denouncing Obama's executive amnesty. "If the president were to do that," he said, "and we have a Republican majority in the United States Senate, why, we have a number of options that we don't now have to remind him to read Article I of the Constitution."

Poll after poll showed Americans ranking illegal immigration as the No. 1 most important problem facing the nation. We haven't changed our minds. Last week, an Associated Press-Gfk poll showed that Obama's single most unpopular policy is his position on illegal immigration.

In other words, Obamacare is more popular than amnesty. That's like losing a popularity contest to Ted Bundy.

Ms. Ann Coulter doesn't really break any new ground here
—wait. There is one thing.  I didn't know that "Never before has a House majority leader (Eric Cantor) been defeated in a primary."  

What makes this column worth reading then is true of most of her musings. They are factual, and acerbically cut her targets to the bone with a surgeon's skill.  Wait, I used that trite cliche when she really is more like a combine mowing a wheat field, with grain and chaff neatly separated and flying everywhere. On a dark and rainy night. God bless her little heart.

Queen Ann of the Scalpel and Bludgeon is so right!
I used to get lots of fund raising letters from "Conservative" Senator "Mitch"'s butt boys.
After he gave money to turn out Democraps in the Cochrane/McDaniel run off for Senate, he became not just a RINO but a traitor.
One would think as "The Majority Leader" of the Upper House, he'd take the fight to the opposition, present his case to the people, appear on Fox at every opportunity (Harry Reid certainly did), and maybe comment on one or two of the conservative talk shows to present his take on issues.
Instead, he mostly stays in DC, refuses invitations from talk show hosts, works back room deals and never answers questions from constituents simply and directly, but redirects, equivocates or outright lies. It seems to me most of what he says would numb a meth addict, rather than inspire followers. My sense of the man is that he is always straddling the fence with his finger in the air, looking around to be sure he doesn't step in a pasture patty whichever side the wind blows him down on.
He cares more about White House lunches, his DC social circles and power brokers than us.
We feel it. I hope some way, some how, we get to dump bushels of those pasture patties on his head one day.

BTW Rodg, are you back in love with Annie?

Yes. Ann publicly apologized for her Chris Christie swoon, and her "birther" rant, while inexpiable, is her only mortal sin.

It's refreshing and heartwarming to see Saint Ann back from her delusional state. Rehab must've paid off, she is back from wandering on the Gov Crisco love affair and Mitt is a conservative.

Hope she doesn't take anymore bumps to the head. She always has been most useful fighting on our side, instead of tearing us down.

We are used to the small shifts in practice vs. promise we always see once someone is sworn in. This feels different. Polls and election results are overwhelmingly against any form of amnesty. It clear to an idiot that if pleasing the people to stay in office matters, that's the side you come down on. So why don't they? There's no gray area on this one, it's one of the clearest decisions any politician should have to make: oppose it because the people that vote want you to.

So why do they go cold now? What did they learn once on the other side that chilled them? I think that's the bigger story behind the story.

What ....chilled them?
I think it's BIG money from PACS, lobbyists, corporations[= Chamber of Commerce] that want lots of cheap labor. That and an unreasonable fear of being labeled 'racist' by the MSM and the Progs/commies who write scripts for the MSM.

I read somewhere that only 10% of campaign contributions come from Mom & Pop individuals, the rest from big donors.

IIRC, "Mitch"*spit* recently put a rider buried deep in the huge Cromnibus bill to move the contribution limit per person from ~$32,000 to $324,000 by playing games with splitting accounts and later pooling the money for party favorites. That's not for you and me. That's Senator for Life insurance.
