Rep. Brad Miller (NC-13) -- Continuing the use Broken Consent on Amnesty

Byron York on amnesty...

So why are Obama, Pelosi and Reid going forward? There are five possible explanations.

1) They've lost their minds.

2) They are very smart and know something we don't.

3) They're out of touch with the public's concerns.

4) They want to be able to tell the most ardent supporters of reform that they tried.

5) They're fully aware that the public doesn't want "comprehensive" reform but are racing to do as much as they can before the elections take away their power to defy the public's wishes.

The first possibility is highly unlikely. The second is less so, but still pretty unlikely. The third is plausible, but not probable. The fourth is arguable. And the fifth? It makes a lot of sense, especially in light of the Obamacare experience.

I have been arguing number 5 for some time now. Governance through Broken Consent.

Brad Miller is an en enabler of this type of governance as he votes with Pelosi, nearly 100% of the time. As a result, I believe he is more of a follower within his own crowd than a leader. And on amnesty Brad Miller is an "olly olly oxen free" supporter of amnesty (moderating statements otherwise).

Is there any doubt Brad Miller would vote counter Pelosi, Reid, and Obama? Of course not.

Removing Brad Miller from office would be a step toward breaking governance by Broken Consent.
