After tomorrow’s election, we could be headed for the most dangerous period of history since the Civil War. All signs point to the Republicans regaining complete control of Congress, setting the stage for a battle between the president and the GOP over immigration reform signed into law with the president’s pen and paper. The Democrats will be able to sit back and appear to the moderates, and at the forefront will be the next President of the United States: Hillary Rodham Clinton. How does it happen? Glenn laid out the prediction on radio Monday morning.
Who wins tomorrow’s election? I will tell you that I do not believe it will be you that wins. It may be the Democrats, it may be the Republicans. But it definitely will not be you. And let me explain exactly what I mean by that.
I believe the Republicans are going to win tomorrow. The Republicans are going to win control of the Senate and the House. And before people who might be in this audience start to cheer, let me explain why that isn’t necessarily a good thing, even for the Republicans.
I don’t think it’s necessarily a good thing for the Republic, because I don’t believe the Republicans represent the Republic anymore. They are progressive and they will do exactly what they want. In fact, if Mitt Romney has his way, what they’re going to do is immediately forward comprehensive immigration reform. And this will just be a watered-down version of what the Democrats will want to do. And you’ll get all of the credit for that. Let me just talk politics here for a second. Republicans, you’re going to get all the same kind of credit that you got for the Civil Rights Act. And congratulations on that, because that was yours. And you’re seeing how well that’s working out for you now, don’t you?
So what’s going to happen? The Republicans think that they’re going to continue to play the same game that has always been played in America. And they think that they’re going to be able to come in and actually turn the tide here. They think that they’re actually going to make a difference, because they’re going to come in with their reform bill and they’re going to come in and they’re going to start holding people responsible. But they’re going to be moderate, too, you know. They’re not going to be too crazy. They’re not going to be like those Tea Party people.
Meanwhile, the president is standing alone. Have you noticed that? The president — there’s nobody asking the president, hey, could we get the president to speak? Nobody is showing up for the president. The Democrats don’t want to see the president. So what happens?
Try this out for size: Tomorrow the Republicans win. They win control of House and Senate. The [Democrats] are out. The Democrats begin to blame the president and his policies. Whether they do so outwardly or not, I’m not so sure. I think that they just continue down this road, this path, where they say, the president, it doesn’t matter. The president is irrelevant at this point. The president is a lame duck. He’s a lame duck president.
No, he’s anything but a lame duck. Because the Democrats are going to pull away from this president, the president is going to see an open highway. The president believes the things that he says. The president believes that comprehensive immigration reform doesn’t go far enough. The president believes that we shouldn’t be asking people for a green card. There are no borders here. You come in. You have a right to work here. I think Rand Paul believes that. It’s not so radical to some people. So he believes in this open border. He has a phone and a pen and he’s going to use it.
Now, what does that do?
What that does is that sets the country on fire and splits us even deeper, because there are those who believe, and I’m one of them, that this actually is the end of the republic as we know it. You just can’t open up the borders. Read Gibbons, Mr. President. It was the last act before Rome fell. You just can’t open the borders, especially with everything that’s going on, between the disease that, Mr. President, your policies brought in to this country. The enterovirus, that has crippled children, killed children, nobody is willing to talk about it, look into it. Look at the stats. That was brought in from people coming across the border and infecting our children. But that’s just the beginning of it.
If you open and give these green cards, which they’ve now printed nine million green cards, if you just start giving everybody a green card, that’s just going to open the borders up even more. Then everybody will come, because now they’ll say, oh, my gosh. They actually did it. It’s not just come and the possibility. They actually did it. So come. It opens our borders up even more.
That requires the Republicans then to take a strong stand and the Republicans to say, you can’t do that, which sets up a battle. But it’s a battle between the president, not the Democrats, the president and the GOP.
The Democrats will step back. The Democrats will suddenly say, you know, we’re not in this. That’s the president. And they will watch. And they will see which way the wind is blowing. Some will step up. Most will not. And the one that won’t, the one that will be cautioning, step back, step back, just wait, wait for the right time. Wait for it to settle down. Wait for the ads to begin. Wait for them to change public opinion. And the ads will start and they will be run by people like Mark Zuckerberg.
They will run the same campaign, the campaign that was run on gay marriage. None of us hate gay people. I mean, I’m sure there are people that hate gay people. Those are in the extreme minority. And they’re freaks. Nobody hate gay people. Nobody wants them to be unhappy. If you love somebody, love somebody, whatever. I’m not your judge, dude. However, I believe in traditional marriage. Okay, you don’t. Okay. My stance has been why is the government involved in this at all? I don’t get any value from the government telling me who I can and cannot marry. Don’t do this because then the next thing the government will have to do is tell my church that I have to marry gay couples. Now you’re get — now you’re interfering with church. Any thinking person could see this nightmare coming a million miles away, but it was denied. And what they did was they personalized it and made anyone who said they were against gay marriage a hater. It worked now, didn’t it?
So why not use this, Mark Zuckerberg, why not use this as your approach? We all know people who are living in the shadows. They cut your lawn, they fix your house. They’re hardworking Americans. We all know them. Why would you hate those who are working here, who just want to have a better life?
They will begin to position it and make it personal instead of about making it about principles. Because we’re a nation without any principles, because we’re a nation that can’t even think about principles anymore, anyone who stands against just opening up the borders is going to be deemed a hatemonger.
Maybe not the first day, but definitely by 2016. And as soon as this shakes out, it will divide the country. And it will be a fight between the president and the GOP.
And who will be there to say, look, the GOP is crazy. They’re full of haters. They’re full of racists. Now the president, did he do the right thing? No, I don’t think he did. But there’s a place in between here and we need to start talking about common sense.
May I introduce you to the next president of the United States, Hillary Rodham-Clinton.
She will play the middle ground. She will be the great mediator. She will be the one that plays right in the middle. Look, I’m not with — I’m certainly not with the GOP. But I’m not really with the president either.
We’re in the most dangerous position this republic has been in since the Civil War. And it begins on Wednesday. Whenever the balance of power is given, the president is unleashed. He no longer has to worry about the Democrats because the Democrats don’t like him and quite frankly I don’t think he likes them.
He’s certainly does not in bed with the Clintons. He doesn’t like the Clintons, he never has and the Clintons don’t like him.
He believes in his principles. I think he believes he’s been wronged the whole time. I believe the president thinks he’s a victim. He’s a victim of me, of Fox News, of now it will be the Democrats deserting him. All he was trying to do is what he was trying to do.
Quite honestly, I kind of agree with him. He was at least transparent before he became president. You knew — he said everything that he was going to do. Nobody took him at his word. He said he was going to do, may I just remind you, fundamental transformation of the United States. May I just remind you of his wife. Barack knows, you’re going to have to change your traditions, you’re going to have to change your language. You’re going to have to change everything. So he was honest. He said it.
Now you could say he wasn’t exactly honest because he was lying about single-payer system, but he at least said it and we have him on tape. When, when Mitt Romney said one thing on tape in a back room, everybody said that was the worst thing that could ever possibly happen. He said that’s not what I meant.
Nobody even asked the president if what they had on tape, what we played on Fox over and over and over again was what he meant. Everybody just dismissed it and pointed the finger and said you’re a hater.
So I kind of actually agree with the president, that he’s been wronged by his own party. He’s been wronged by his own supporters. He got more done than any other democratic president in the history of the United States of America and I think that’s more than FDR. He fundamentally changed the United States of America. Because he believes it.
He’s going to do exactly what Woodrow Wilson tried to do but Woodrow Wilson in the end — remember, when he was, quote, the lame duck, he couldn’t get those things through. This president doesn’t care. This president will sign it through. And the Democrats are smart enough to just stand back.
If Harry Reid is still part of the Senate, then these things can’t come true.If Harry Reid is running the Senate, then he’s going to have a harder time getting these things through, because the Democrats will get the blame.
But the minute the GOP takes control, the president has a wide open highway. He’ll floor this sucker.
