One of these things is not like the other couldn't be more apt, and all I could think of was Petey Grover Sessions and Sesame Street.
Imagine the gall of Pete Sessions to use Senator Jeff Sessions' image in his campaign materials. Senator Jeff Sessions is fighting the illegal alien crisis, which sits in striking contrast to Representative Pete Sessions who is squishy on the illegal alien crisis. The two couldn't be more polar if they tried and the Syrian Refugee issue highlights this effectively.
According to Wade Miller of Heritage Action,
"Today, the House passed the American Security Against Foreign Enemies (SAFE) Act of 2015 (H.R. 4038). As Heritage Action noted previously, the bill sets up a more stringent vetting system for Syrian refugees but it relies solely on President Obama’s appointees to carry out the new vetting process. It provides no leverage for Congress to weigh in or affirm the implementation of the process. Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:“The SAFE Act cannot be the conclusion of congressional action. With our national security at risk, lawmakers must be empowered to vet the vetting process before it moves forward. Unfortunately, there is no indication the Obama administration is willing to engage in constructive negotiations with Congress. Lawmakers should deny funding to this program until there is a real plan to mitigate the serious national security risks posed by Obama administration’s current resettlement plans.”
A point of clarification... this bill does not stop the Syrian refugee resettlement program."
Senator Jeff Sessions leans Constitutional conservative, unlike Representative Pete Sessions who leans incredibly toward Obama's derriere with his lips. Pete has passed nearly every piece of legislation Obama wanted since 2012. In fact, I would bet Senator Sessions is not even aware his image was used in this manner. I dare say Pete's slip is showing.
Not convinced? In a Breitbart article on the House's actions today, Jeff Sessions is quoted as stating, “It is based on a flawed premise, as there is simply no way to vet Syrian refugees,” Sessions said in a statement."
This is a far cry from the Eagle Forum data on Pete Sessions' covert legislative actions uncovered below:
"As you may know, Barack Obama is seeking to resettle at least 10,000 largely-unvetted Syrians in the United States.
"The House Conservatives, including Louie Gohmert, Mark Meadows and Dave Brat, have been attempting to delay Obama's reckless Syrian resettlement program.
"Unfortunately, PETE SESSIONS is still using his position as House Rules Chair to KILL the House Conservatives' efforts while FAST-TRACKING HR4038 (the "vetting" procedures for the Obama Resettlement)* with very limited debate and no amendments allowed.
"Via Eagle Forum:This is just one of many Pete operatives, and he is hoping you don't figure out how he does his DC business. Score zero for Pete Sessions and his tasteless use of a real conservative to trick voters in CD32. Clearly, he has no record of his own to stand on, that he must invoke the record, name and image of someone else. This is truly embarrassing for Pete Sessions' campaign.
"Yesterday evening, in an effort to improve the American SAFE Act, Rep. Babin and 15 of his colleagues [Brat, Brooks, Meadows, Duncan (SC), Barletta, Loudermilk, LaMalfa, Hice, DeSantis, Sanford, Gohmert, Culberson, Graves (LA), Garrett, and Walker] offered a modification of H.R. 3314 that would halt the resettlement program for 180 days and require a GAO study within 90 days on the economic impact on state and local government. Chairman Pete Sessions and Republican leadership rejected this and every other amendment, instead opting for a closed rule that enabled leadership to rush through H.R. 4038."
"If you oppose Obama's Syrian resettlement program, and don't believe we should be "fast-tracking" the vetting procedures, PETE SESSIONS NEEDS TO HEAR FROM YOU.
"PLEASE CALL PETE SESSIONS and DEMAND that he STOP FIGHTING THE HOUSE CONSERVATIVES.
