Skip to comments.Morning Joe: 'Ignore' Rubio's Remarks To Rush—Just Taking Care of Base, Saving Face
Posted on 01/30/2013 5:57:40 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Marco Rubio's tough talk to Rush Limbaugh yesterday about no immigration deal being done unless certain language on border security, etc. is included? Ignore it. Just Rubio taking care of his conservative baseand saving face. In the end, Rubio will likely give Obama his vote on immigration reform. It's all about finding an out for Republicans when it comes to winning back a decent share of the Latino vote. And conservatives will be willing to take the deal.
Such was the collective wisdom of Morning Joe today, as enunciated by Jon Meacham and seconded by Joe Scarborough.

Is the fix in? Ping to Today show list.
I don’t trust Rubio.
First, I believe Rubio is sincere.
My question is what happens when the plan is approved to secure the border, before anybody is placed on “the path to citizenship”?
Obama ignores the border security, but initiates “the path”.
How do we stop him?
Even if the “language is included,” it doesn’t mean they’ll actually do it.
I believe the GOP will shut up, roll over, and that will be that. The Dems continue continue to rub our noses in their steaming pile. If we give everyone a work visa (amnesty), then we won’t need border security. Why pretend. Swallow.
The base has been played for suckers since 2004. Tell us something we don’t know, Morning Joe.
Rubio is playing the game.
He isn’t stupid, he knows the borders will remain open.
In another ten years we will be doing the same thing we are doing now. Voting to close the borders and make eveyone already here a citizen.
If Rubio is even perceived as a threat to the Communist machine at work, he will be destroyed like a bug. If you don’t believe me, just remember back to all the candidates during the last election. The lamestream media will assist in any character assassination.
On this so called “issue” there are two camps. Those who support demographic warfare against America and its melting pot, and those who do not support demographic warfare against America BUT WHO DO NOT WANT AMERICA TO BECOME A CULTURAL MOSAIC, without a melting pot.
This fight is not just about immigration, it is about retaining our melting pot model, or succumbing to Balkanization of the People into a society that can be divided and conquered aliong racial/ethnic grounds, by a tyrannical government created by Obama..
Now the left says that the cultural balkanization of America is a done deal, unavoidable. THAT IS NOT CORRECT.Collin Powell went on Fox and said it was a done deal. NO IT IS NOT.
The melting pot vs. cultural mosaic format must be debated directly in Congress so that the people WILL know the issue: IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE A PATRIOTIC AMERICAN, LOYAL TO THE CONSTITUTION AND TO THE REPUBLIC, THEN LEAVE THIS PLACE, you have no business here and neither does reconquista.
WE MUST RETURN to the melting pot model, and if people want to keep theior ancestral culture, let them do so freely and privately at home in their own places and privately funded institutions. BUT ABOVE ALL, EACH CITIZEN must be an American, despite the obvious fact that OUR SO CALLED PRESIDENT IS NOT.
Preserve melting pot America, do not abandon it in a cheap blow to our Republic designed to wage demographic warfare on the majority of America, which just happens to be occidental,and shamelessly caucasian.
Rubio has fallen for the idea that melting pot America is at an end. That’s his weakness, and the weakness of this newest sell out Ganag of Four.
And the border MUST be secured at all costs, and if the feds will not do it, then the states will.
LOL. Like we need to believe Joe the Traitor and his Obama sycophants.
You’d be better off ignoring Morning Jo(k)e.
Rubio is an idiot on this issue. NO Amnesty for these illegal maggots. The 30 million Amnestied will bring an additional 100 million in from their homelands, their family members etc. . Because citizens can do that. And they will NEVER vote Republican . this is just an plan to get tens of millions of new democrat voters ,more voters for socialism. you cannot convince someone to change from an illiterate ant-American socialist ( try arguing with a liberal for example.)
Stop amnesty now . THAT is the biggest battle call your congressmen, twitter them , email them ,protest on the street. it's now or never people
30 million new mexican, zomali etc. maggots with their new American citizenship which they illegally invaded to obtain with the help of democrats , these 30 million new will import 100 million of their relatives from their dirty homelands to further destroy America
Don’t throw Rubio under the bus yet.
I agree but only as part of a grand coalition.
The Rubio wing, and other progressive conservatives, do have something to add to the party.
Our problem is they have been running the party since around Bush the first.
They need to be a partner, and frankly a junior partner, with conservatives.
Re-build conservatism. Re-build Americanism.
All the "certain language" in the world is not going to do a thing for border security until a WALL is in place, backed by mines and troops.
You;re known by the company you keep,...right Joe???? By the way, do you think Lori can now become a naturalized citizen??? Oh yeah, I forgot. She’s dead!
Big joke at MSNBC is how Rubio must play up us stupid conservatives by making believe he and Obama disagree, when they all (MSNBC) admit that they both have the same plan.
Rubios blowing the dog whistle :”’Woof, woof’”
“ I wont accept a deal without ...bla-bla-bla, so the President needs to bla-bla-bla”
Stupid Republican :
“ That Darn Obama doesnt want to protect the borders. Thanks goodness we have Rubia to stand up to him
“After amnesty 30 million illegals will be able with their new citizenship to bring in 100 million of their relatives from their dirty socialist homelands. That will destroy America. Amnesty has to be stopped and this Rubio is wrong on this issue. he can jump in the lake. Additionally an Amnesty will attract another 100 million illegals cause they know many illegal jobs will open up because the new citizens don’t have to do the illegal jobs as they will take Americns’jobs as if there are any jobs at all . “
I second the motion! Nuff said!
Rush was giddy after that interview.
The trouble is, Rubio is either so naive that he doesn’t realize the others in the ‘gang’ are playing him like a fiddle, or he is in on the dipsy-doodle shellgame administrationS [plural, includes Dem and Pubbie] and Congress [includes Dem and Pubbie] have been playing for decades.
The problem with Rubio’s proposal is the same with every proposal/bill since the 1965 — border security enforcement is included, but enforcement is not made mandatory. Any ‘measure’ of determining border security is subjective and left up to — politicians.
Rubio basically said he ‘hoped Obama would enforce border security’ if this new bill is made law.
Ironically, Obama was in Las Vegas about the same time making an immigration speech, and he basically said current enforcement is adequate.
Secondly, how would importing millions of less educated persons help our economy and nation?
The list is endless, and yet people still trust these politicians? Especially someone like Rubio, who comes from the Bush wing of the GOP. Hahahahahaha.
Our country is sol.
You're right. It's called VERIFY BEFORE YOU TRUST. Not the other way around.
I agree. Rush was played. Like a fiddle.
Singling Rubio out this week is fair but the fact is a number of Tea Party-elected Repubs have already sold us down the river on one issue or another.
This whole idea of constitutional conservatives “taking control of the Republican Party” is a pipe dream. But don’t tell Rush or Levin, they just don’t want to hear it.
I think he is destroying himself with this amnesty crap.
Stop amnesty now . THAT is the biggest battle call your congressmen, twitter them , email them ,protest on the street. it’s now or never people
I disagree. Over at Dem channel Rubio is a hero and they are all laughing about how Rub is pushing the same plan as O (millions of new Dem party voters) by blowing this dog whistle to get the R party dummies to fall in line.
The R party channel FNC is not reporting on Rubio back-stabbing.
I wont accept a deal without ...bla-bla-bla, so the President needs to bla-bla-bla
Stupid Republican :
That Darn Obama doesnt want to protect the borders. Thanks goodness we have Rubia to stand up to him
Take out the gubment freebies and the vote from the deal and then see how many sign up to be 'legal'
Oh go take your meds, it’s not 30 million, it’s probably a third of that, maybe a tad more...and they don’t have 100 million lined up to join them either. Besides, I’m more worried about 60 million natural born citizens who HATE AMERICA AS FOUNDED than I am anything else. They are a much bigger threat.
This problem is not helped by distorting reality.
Good points. Something is going to get done, whether we like it or not. There will be NO deportation of current illegals. Zero. None. Zip.
As far as Plan B’s go, this one is about the best that can occur. The major flaw in it is painfully obvious.
It requires illegals to essentially turn themselves in. Who thinks this will really happen?
But you do trust that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave
“The base has been played for suckers since 2004. Tell us something we dont know, Morning Joe.”
Before 2004, Reagan was hood-winked by Tip O’Neil, thought he was making a deal between two old Irishmen and he (Reagan) thought his (O’Neil) word was good. Well, Reagan soon found out that Tip was lying and had no intention of keeping his word and he didn’t. The old proverb “fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me” should be remembered as the Democrats will lie again and will not keep any promises made about border security. So, I say, secure our border first and then we can talk about the other stuff. End of subject.....
I wish I could hope Rubio had something clever up his sleeve to thwart Obama's plan to globalize the American people, but according to past statements he's made about the GOP base I'm afraid I don't believe it.
Rubio's another GOPe type who believes his career will benefit from an Amnesty deal and he's striking while the iron is hot.
I agree- I would like it wrote in the bill that they have a means to suport themselves financially, a relative signs a form saying they will support them, and they are not entitled to GOVERNMENT BENEFITS. No SSI, NO SSDI.....
You could use a new screen name.
Its the same plan as Obama’s : millions of new Dem party voters,
You know what Rubio told Rush??
That he expects them to open businesses and then ‘realize the cost of government’ (in the negative) suggesting that they would actually support upper end tax cuts over gub handouts when voting.
This is preposterous and dishonest. If Rub and Mccain get their Obama bill we will hear even more endless lectures (just like w Joe now) on how the R party must move to center to appeal to those new 'Hispanic' voters,
Take out the gov freebees and voting and see how many apply.
Who buys that load of crap?
Amnesty will be the final bullet-in-the-head to the country. Obama/Holder/Napolitano will ensure there will be no enforcement of border security, and the liberal courts will overturn any restrictions and rule that the illegals will be entitled to all forms of welfare and voting. A wave of 25 million new Dem votes. Texas will become a blue-state, and America permanently becomes a one-party nation. It will render every political issue, every election moot. I consider anyone for this a damned traitor.
Well since 99% will be in that bottom 47% of voters (increasing it to 53% eventually) I assume that means they file for their accumulated tax credit $$$ that the Feds pay them for all the years they were living here illegally, that is what they mean by 'pay their taxes'
A real plan would demand that they pay a certain level of taxes say like a single does who earns 60K per year with no deductions (and earn the income at those levels) for say 5 years or no permanent green card..
Who needs more cleaning ladies getting food stamps and EITC and medicaid?
You go take your meds.
This city here is overrun by your foreign idiots , muslims, mexicans, somlis, Haitians, bosnians, from 20 latin American countries, MEXICO etc.
this is a massive invasion invited by your democrats and Obama

This city here is overrun by your foreign idiots , muslims, mexicans, somlis, Haitians, bosnians, from 20 latin American countries, MEXICO, Africans, etc.
this is a massive invasion invited by your democrats and Obama
Your Amnesty will only make that much worse
millions of illegal jobs will open up
Chain immigration will allow the Amnestied to bring in their relatives and their relatives and so on
you are the problem
Marco Rubio (R-Latinos)
He’s a Jeb Bush protege. Front man for the treason lobby.
Deportation No, Amnesty Si!
If you want to fully convert the United States into just one more Latin American country then Rubio is your guy.
California has already made the change, you get to be next.
Press 2 for English.

Memories of how Rush played waterboy for Dubya.
