Why the GOP base is getting more and more fed up with establishment Republicans:

House Speaker John Boehner has hired a high-profile immigration adviser, his office announced Tuesday, a surprising move that pro-reform and anti-reform advocates alike interpreted as a step toward reform.

Becky Tallent, an immigration policy wonk, is a well-known figure among immigration advocates, having helped spearhead Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain’s efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform under President George W. Bush.

The Obama team's incredible health care incompetence has given Republicans an incredible gift, with public opinion putting Democrats up for re-election in an abolsute panic, and Boehner's reaction is to keep pushing for immigration reform that will lead to amnesty and millions more Democratic voters? That's not just trying to help the other team. That's joining the other team.
