I feel a ground shift ever since Cruz, Lee, and Paul beat down the anti-gun bill last month... more GOPers are ignoring the RINOs and standing up to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

If you watched that video of Ted Cruz at FreedomWorks, he says it’s starting to feel different up there...

You can hear the death knell for Robio when you see that cover. What a stupid move.

Seems to me that Toomey, Rubio, and then Ryan, all let themselves get used by their party bosses, who wanted to go along with the Rats on new background checks and registration for gun buyers/owners, amnesty for illegals, and gay adoption, but rightly feared the Conservative backlash.

The bosses thought (wrongly) that by trotting out this trio and having them act as front guys, that Conservatives would come around to the party way of thinking. Instead, the hapless three have pretty much killed their political careers, which is perhaps equally a win for the party bosses anyway.

I wonder, since Rubio is the only face associated with the immigration bill, if this was actually a scheme by the go8 and gop-e to torpedo Rubio as a tea party darling. It certainly has done that, and locked him into the gop-e for the rest of his career.

Rubio had SO much potential. It is all squandered now.

Perhaps, he thinks he has secured a seat at the NWO table for himself and family? He should know better.

His political career is probably over. It's too bad, he had the potential to be great. Now he is just a tool.

Well poor Rubio, since he has a “George Soros produced” Chief of Staff he thought he could not lose!!

HERE YOU GO!!

We already know who is advising Rubio, His chief of Staff....

See, Who is Cesar Conda?
So a former George Soros rag editor is now Rubio’s Chief of Staff.

Behind the scenes of Amnesty..

Rubio had NO potential, he’s a lying traitor, scum bag like many other Republicans..

Consider what the Marco Rubio’s bill is attempting to hide by moving so quickly. The bill:

Grants amnesty to illegal aliens simply after the Secretary of Homeland Security submits plans to secure the border;

Grants amnesty to criminals and gang members;

Does not require amnestied illegal aliens to pay back-taxes;

Does not require amnestied illegal aliens to learn English;

Allows illegal aliens to sue the government for amnesty;

Allows the open borders and pro-amnesty lobbies to sue to prevent enforcement measures from taking place before illegal aliens can receive green cards;

Requires taxpayers foot the bill for illegal aliens to fight deportations at the Attorney General’s sole and unreviewable discretion;

Requires only 3 of 9 southern border sectors to have a 90% apprehension rate, leaving the rest in the porous status quo;

Grants green cards and citizenship after 5 years to illegal aliens claiming to have come to the U.S. before the age of 16 who meet certain criteria;

and

Effectively halts all deportations for years by requiring Homeland Security to allow every illegal alien its agents intercept to apply for amnesty and prohibiting agents from deporting them until the illegal alien’s application is adjudicated.

I was under the impression that NR had come down for amnesty. We need to keep up the pressure.

Paul and Ryan.

Paul is still saying he wants to see border security first.

[Rubio was parroting that same line just a few months ago.]

The Rubio plan kicks the border security can down the road up to 5 years. If Homeland Security has not secured the border by then [how many more millions will have crossed for the next amnesty?], then a new government commission is formed to look into securing the border.

[Hey, Marco, there isn't enough bath soap in the world to get the stink of amnesty off you. That is your prize for hanging with Schumer and McCain+Graham.]

But Rubio, McCain, various other RINOs and the Democrats are WRONG.

First off, none of the current crop of illegals are STATELESS REFUGEES. These people all have citizenship somewhere ~ and if they want to exercise the rights and privileges of citizenship they are free to go do that. Nobody is holding them captive here!

Secondly, we don't need any more people added to the workforce ~ lest they all missed that.

Thirdly, the current regime has thrown away all sense of security and the people of this country are not at exceedingly high risk of terrorism. We can't have that.

Now, what were you saying McCain, Arizona's best known beer baron was right about? That some beer needs more hops, or maybe it doesn't help it to flash freeze it!

Oh, I fully agree

Defense and immigration keep me from getting too excited about Rand Paul, but he’s far more presentable and reasonable than the old man

Ted Cruz is hitting all the nails right on the head for me, tho...

Notice how Rubio acknowledges the Tea Party's fury at his amnesty backing but he says despite that, he'll move forward. That was RINOspeak for ‘Hasta La Vista, Ventosas’

It was bad enough that he signed on, but then he went all out to defend the stupid thing. Gotta wonder if this wasn’t a plot to discredit him forever in the eyes of conservatives.

Frankly, I don't care anymore whether Marco Rubio was set up by the Democrats and anti-conservative RINOs that run the GOP or is simply misguided, he showed terrible judgement by allowing himself to be tied to a bad bill that is a disaster for America. We're already reeling under the endless flow of illegal aliens sucking up jobs and welfare benefits, not to mention how many would-be terrorists have already sneaked into our county through our porous southern border.

This thinly disguised amnesty bill is rubbish and something that only a fool would endorse. McCain endorsing this trash is understandable, he's proven time and time again that he is a Democrat at heart and wears the Republican label with discomfort.

As far as this conservative is concerned, Marco Rubio is dead to me.

I live 100 yards from Mexico in Texas. I do not support any immigration bill except send them back home and get in line. Put anyone in jail or fine the hell out of anyone who hires them. If we truly need the labor then let more in legally with REAL background checks starting with the ones who have been in line for years that can pass the background checks.

You’ve probably summed up the situation better than anything I’ve read all week.

As far as Rubio and the “tea party,” for anyone paying careful attention, he was distancing himself from it ever since he was elected. All while cozying up to McCain, the GOP-E, and its northeastern moneymen. That’s why I wasn’t particularly startled when he began pushing this amnesty grotesquerie. I’d already figured this guy out. And it wasn’t a pretty picture.

Also of note is how Rubio had been getting the most jaw-droppingly positive press. FoxNews was pushing him like the second coming. It was downright unseemly. I knew the whole GOP beltway crowd was ‘up to something.’ They were all prepping Rubio to be their amnesty salesman.

Well said.

Rubio has amnesty as a core belief. He is John McCain with a 'accent' and without the military service.

Marco 'let my people go' Rubio.

Watch as he pushes for 'Intervention' in Syria and every other hell hole in the world. He drank the koolaid years ago.

Wondering aloud . . . why isn't Rubio asked, when interviewed by any conservative talkie . . .
"Why is it important to make legal citizens out of over 11 million people who are satisfied, it seems, to work in the shadows?"
"How will natural Americans benefit from new employment competitors?"
"Can you discuss, with specifics, the proposition your proposal makes on page 831 of the bill?" (knowing, of course, that he's read substantially none of it)

I disagree Rubio HAD tremendous potential.

He COULD HAVE been a credulous voice against leftism. He SHOULD understand that bringing Mexicans (largely who will become citizens if they grant amnesty) through our leftist indoctrination mills we call schools is s death sentence for this country. Instead he willingly chose this route.

I can only be led to one of the following conclusions:

1. He's stupid and he really thinks there is a chance these immigrants will ever vote anything but socialist

2. Something is in it for him. Or so he thinks.

I’m surprised, the NR crowd is now fully run by RINO’s and non-conservatives.

Dumped my subscription years ago. I still look at NRO just too see the idiocy. Yesterday Ramesh Ponnuru was whining about Ted Cruz because he didn’t “follow Senate protocol.”

The Constitution is burning and NR is fiddling protocol?

“I was under the impression that NR had come down for amnesty. We need to keep up the pressure.”
_______________________________________________________

I believe you may be correct, yet people like Krauthammer who are in favor of major immigration reform also HATE this bill, and by extension what Rubio is trying to do.

It’s just a bad piece of legislation- a big, hot mess like Obamacare, packed with loopholes and elements of the prog political agenda

You caught Jay Leno's quip about how the new term for "illegal immigrant" should be "undocumented Democrat"...?

Like I said, even a tinseltown Lib like Leno had this scheme all figured out, yet Rubio walked right in to this pathetic set up. It's obviously a no win situation for him.

Compared to Moronic Marco, even a Senate dimwit, like Patty Murray, now looks like a beacon of brilliance.
