A Republican senator’s actions demonstrating his real convictions?

I’m shocked. Shocked.

This is just the start of all the Santa presents $$$$ that the GOP plans on handing out to get these peoples votes,
These traitors have no trouble bald-face lying to us to get a Dem bill passed.

They figure we will support them because of the IRS scandal even if they betray us with this.

Hold it everyone. One of the article’s commentors stated that the reason Flake may have voted this way was that it increased the chance that it would kill the bill in the broader Senate.

RE :”And these are the people we expect to bring Obama Crime Inc to justice? Fat chance.”

I never expected that,
In fact I immediately posted warnings that the GOP will use those as a smoke screen because they figure they can just cry Benghazi or IRS and all will be forgiven,

That is Grahamnesty and McCain's favorite trick and it worked in 2010 for McCain.

No, just another Mormon doing his church’s bidding. Mormonism is the second largest religion in Mexico. Wouldn’t want to piss of the First Presidency by making it harder for those “converts” to come to America. But “It’s What the Lord Wants Us To Do,” and that trumps this nation’s laws. But funny thing, it’s exactly what the Catholics are doing too.

“Dems are worse you know!”

Are they?
I think I would rather face a known enemy than have one at my back. One I thought was my friend.
I voted for Flake in November and now less than 6 months in office he is more McCain than Kyle.
If I had known then what I know now, I would have voted for the Democrat.

A big reason the dims are doing amnesty now is to demoralize the GOP base. Zuckerburg is a huge kenyan butt licker and is paying for those Rubio radio ads. It’s psywar and these dipstick beltway GOP types are too vain to figure it out.

The bill is bad enough on it’s merits. But even worse is Rubio’s willful misrepresentations of what is in it speaks greatly to his integrity or lack there of. He needs to pay for this assault on the rights of American citizens.

This guy and McCain are just truly bizarre. Sheriff Joe and Governor Brewer are doing everything they can to round up the illegals and keep them out. Flake and McCain are doing everything they can to bring them in and bankrupt their state.

If I were Sheriff Joe I would arrest both of them the minute they stepped off the airplane, put them in pink coveralls and send them off to one of his compounds. Charge them with lying about their true identity by attempting to disguise themselves as Conservatives.

If Rubio had just worked on the bill and then withrawn his support of a bad bill he may have been redeemable in time. However, his in your face misrepresentations PR campaign seals my opinion of him as a carpetbagging dirtbag. There is nothing to salvage at this point.

I am with you.

Its one thing to be misguided and take a position I disagree with, but he was outright lying to sell this Democrat bill to us.
They can lie to Dems all they want but lying to me writes me off them.

The RINOs plan is to slip this lib crap to Obama under the cover of yelling Benghazi and IRS to keep GOP/conservative voters distracted. Grahamnesty and McCain have made careers of this scam.

Obama will still get all the credit after he signs it(Hispanics) , not the GOP, but until its passed he will make sure he looks uninvolved, and Schumer and Durbin will give the RINOs meaningless symbolic victories like on the Dem LBGT amendment to the amnesty bill today.

Schumer called it a ‘pass’ to THEIR GOP allies.

You are watching a con that is being fully planned and executed.
