More Republican collaboration

The more trouble Democrats get into, the more the Republicans show their progressive priorities, and rush to their rescue.

Just watch the movements of Republican House Speaker John Boehner. In October, Boehner surrendered all over the government shutdown, leaving his party to bear the blame of shutdown triggered by the Dems.

And now?  Boehner's marshaling resources to push immigration reform.

From The Hill:
Rebecca Tallent, director of immigration policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center, will start her new job as assistant to the Speaker on Wednesday. Her arrival was one of several personnel moves Boehner announced Tuesday. 
Tallent previously served as chief of staff to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and was deeply involved in efforts to pass immigration reform in 2006 and 2007. 
Advocates for immigration reform cheered the hiring of Tallent, viewing it as a sign that Boehner is serious about pursuing legislation in 2014.
Republican progressives count on sheeple voters not understanding that Republican is not synonymous with conservative. Republican elites love their lo-info voters as much as the Dems love theirs.
