Great job, Rubio. You can formally switch parties now as a conquering hero.

You know how people say there is no Democrat, there is no Republican; there are only politicians?

This is a perfect example.

I bet Lindsey Graham is thrilled DOMA got struck down. Maybe he and the new Hispanic pretty boy Marco can finally “make it official”.

If Obama is calling to congratulate you on a policy “victory,” you’re doing it wrong.

This is hilarious - Obama just knowingly administered the coup de grace to Rubio's political career.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving character.

Bad as it is to see a one-time Reagan incarnate implode, at least Oblamer didn’t communicate with Rubio on the “extension phone” like he used to with Frist, Crist and Lott.

If they just try a little harder, maybe they can convince B0 to endorse the Christie/Rubio ticket.

RINObio was never a “Reagan incarnate”. He’s an astute politician. He saw an opening to higher office by running to Crist’s right, and he took it. Nothing more.

His August, 2011 speech at the Reagan Presidential Library channeled The Gipper: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2011/08/marco-rubio-reagan-library-republican-ticket.html

“Our rights don’t come from our government; our rights come from our God. Rights come from God. Government’s job is to protect those rights. Those are the founding principles of our nation. Without that principle in place, the American Revolution was just another colonial rebellion.”

What happened in the last 2 years to Rubio is a mystery unless he is being blackmailed as there is baggage.

“Senator Hoeven (alleged author of the Corker-Hoeven amendment) doesn’t read legislative. For example, Section 5(b)(1):
Not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall establish a strategy, to be known as the ‘Southern Border Fencing Strategy’ . . .

On the other hand, Section 5(b)(5):

Notwithstanding paragraph (1), nothing in this subsection shall require the Secretary to install fencing . . .

Asked to reconcile these two paragraphs, Senator Hoeven explained that, “when I read through that with my lawyer,” the guy said relax, don’t worry about it.”

Thanks a lot to the Clintons because there is pretty much no such thing as shame anymore or those who voted for this wouldn’t be able to face the camera or the mirror. Rubio is a good looking guy but I can’t stand the look or sound of him - he is too disgusting. Hope we find someone good to run against him.

When you find yourself on the same side as Obama, you have really F***ed up.

At one time I would have considered Rubio for President (Despite his NBC issues) but now I believe he should be thrown out of any and all public offices.

Marco Rubio isn’t the only Republican who self-destructed by supporting the Immigration Bill.

Also DOA are the reputations of John McCain and Lindsey Graham as the leading voices of Republicans in Congress.

After weeks of intense lobbying by those two arrogant blowhards, only 15 Republican Senators could be persuaded to join them in voting for the bill. Sixty-eight percent of Republican Senators voted against it.

John McCain is the leader of only a small RINO sect, including his fellow Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, his acolyte Lindsey Graham, the two Tennessee Republican Senators, the recently appointed NJ Senator Chiesa, and the two weird sisters — Collins of Maine and Murkowski of Alaska — who delight in stabbing the Republican party in the back at every opportunity and who now apparently have a new recruit, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire.

John Boehner has declared that he will not bring the Senate’s Immigration Bill to the House floor unless a majority of House Republicans approves of it — which is very unlikely since only 32% of Senate Republicans approved of it.

John Boehner now needs to stick a fork into the whole non-border-fence immigration fiasco, and the sooner the better.
