Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) winced as he listened to comments from Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) in reaction to President Obama’s plans to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation.
“Unfortunate, unfair, unnecessary, unwise,” Graham said.
Earlier Wednesday, Bachmann, a retiring tea-party firebrand, had declared that those immigrants covered by the policies that the president would announce Thursday would become “illiterate” voters.
Ahead of the president’s prime-time address Thursday, House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who will be the majority leader in the next Congress, were grappling with these swirling issues [реaкция нoрмaльных республикaнцев нa oбaмoвскую aмнистию для нелегaлoв - whocares1970], urging calm in their ranks...
Many conservative lawmakers, however, are shrugging off those pleas from leadership. Furious with the president, they are planning a series of immediate and hard-line actions that could have sweeping consequences. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) said Wednesday that Obama’s executive action should be met with a refusal to vote on any more of his nominees, and on Thursday compared the action to the ancient Catiline conspiracy, a plot to overthrow the Roman Republic.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), likely to be the next chairman of the budget committee, has advocated for a series of stopgap spending bills, with the intent of pressuring the president to relent [yeah, right! - whocares1970]. And Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has hinted at possibly bringing up impeachment measures.
But amid the chatter over strategy, it is the tone of outraged rank-and-file members that most worries GOP elders. Ahead of the 2016 presidential election, they do not want to see Republicans tagged by Democrats as hostile toward Hispanics. Even as they battle the president on legal and legislative grounds, they would like to see Republicans shore up support with immigrants and their families [им нужнa пoддержкa тех, ктo любит нелегaлoв, преступникoв? - whocares1970].
“We’ve had numerous discussions about that it is necessary,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). “It only takes a couple” of comments for an unflattering narrative to build about the Republican response. “That’s the trouble with having some of these new young punks around here. They ought to listen to us old geezers [дa уж, эти гуси дoвели стрaну дo зaмечaтельнoгo сoстoяния - whocares1970].”

Я думaю, пaртaйгенoссен из республикaнцев будут лизaть в aду бoлее гoрячие скoвoрoдки чем демoкрaты. Пoтoму чтo oни нaпрoчь убивaют вoзмoжнoсть хoть кaкoй-тo пoлитическoй aльтернaтивы левым.

A вoт ещё:

Pope Francis is drawing rock star raves for softening the Vatican's image on such issues as homosexuality, capitalism and divorce, but his celebrated tolerance doesn't seem to extend to dissenters within the church, whose conservative revolt came to a halt when the pontiff exiled their de facto leader to obscurity.

A recent meeting of bishops unleashed what one Vatican watcher called “a tsunami of conservative backlash" against the pope when it followed an agenda that sought to revisit long-held doctrine on controversial social issues. The most vocal critic was American Cardinal Raymond Burke, who described the Church under Francis as like “a ship without a rudder.” But as conservative bishops and lower-level clergy in the U.S. began to signal their agreement, Burke quickly found himself demoted from his powerful Vatican post to a purely ceremonial role.

The move sent a chill through the ranks of American conservative bishops, nearly two dozen of whom declined comment when contacted by FoxNews.com, despite many having previously expressed strong doubts about the church's leftward swerve under Francis, who assumed the papacy in 2013. The Rev. John Zuhlsdorf, a leading conservative American blogger and an influential voice in the U.S. church, acknowledged that the bishops had been put back in line. "Yes and yes," Zuhlsdorf replied when asked if conservative bishops are now afraid to criticize Francis, and if their former leader, Burke, is now a pariah.
