Before the last wound heals, Paul Ryan shoots himself in the foot again.

My fearless prediction: this guy is never going to be a Republican Illegal_Immigrants_2nominee for the U.S. Presidency so long as he keeps doing stuff like THIS.  Among the Ryan quotes as he spoke before a breakfast hosted by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce:

“To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws, it’s really a question of ‘when.’”

“Please know that we understand the value of immigration.  We know its importance; we know its roots, its history here in America; and we have ideas on how to make this go forward and make it work so that we do have the rule of law, so that we do have reform, so that we’re not in the same position fifteen years down the road.”

Readers may also remember that, in an interview earlier this year with his hometown newspaper (the Janesville, Wisconsin, “Gazette”) Ryan acknowledged that Boehner and company do not yet have the votes to pass an immigration reform bill, but that “we’re working hard to find where that consensus lies.”

Unfortunately, Ryan’s idea of a “fix” seems to include amnesty.  Sigh.
