Is there any testosterone in the GOP Halls of the Senate? What a pathetic bunch of losers giving up before he fight begins!

Daily  Caller reports Republican Senate leaders say they will try feebly to pass the House’s must-pass budget bill, complete with its popular anti-amnesty curbs.

But they’re also signaling to the Democratic establishment and the media that their part of the joint effort to pass the funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security will be insincere and half-hearted.

And also tepid. Perfunctory and listless, lackluster, apathetic and unenthusiastic.

“We’re going try to pass it,” the GOP’s new majority leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell, told reporters Thursday. “If we’re unable to do that, we’ll see what happens.”

One of his deputies surrendered any political leverage by promising to fund the agency once the Democrats block the popular anti-amnesty spending rules. “Under no circumstances will we see any shutdowns,” said John Cornyn, the GOP’s Senate whip, told the reporters. “No more drama. … That’s off the table.”

The underlying GOP split was revealed by President Barack Obama’s determination to boost immigration.

Congress failed to pass his immigration rewrite in 2013 and 2014. So he announced in November that he would grant work permits and other benefits to roughly five million illegals who have birthed children in the United States.

In December, House Speaker John Boehner pushed through a bill that funds the agency and the amnesty until late February.

In January, however, he bent under pressure from the GOP base, which strongly opposes the amnesty, and allowed GOP legislators to pass a February-to-October funding bill for the department that would also bar it from implementing Obama’s various amnesty plans.
