G.O.P. Groups Offering Cover for Lawmakers on Immigration (GOP-e desperately trying to save Rubio)
NY Times ^ | 7/1/13 | JEREMY W. PETERS

Posted on 07/02/2013 9:49:39 AM PDT by jimbo123

Fox News viewers in Florida will see a new commercial in the coming weeks urging them to call Senator Marco Rubio. “Thank him for keeping his promise, and fighting to secure the border,” a narrator says in the ad, which is paid for by the conservative American Action Network.

Another group, Americans for a Conservative Direction, led by former Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi and other top Republicans, has been running ads in Iowa lately that implore those watching to “stand with Marco Rubio to end de facto amnesty.”

Oh, I think the FOX viewers en masse absolutely should call him - and ask him if he's spent his 30 pieces of silver yet (thanks, Sarah!). They should also assure him that they will be working hard to prevent him from having another term in office since he is now a proven 'sellout' to the Democrats and what is NOT in America's best interests. Please DO call him.

Rubio went full over...rubbing houlders with, and depending on the likes of Chucky Shumer and others of that ilk...in helping craft a monstrosity of an immigrationr eform package. A package, that thank God, will never pass in the GOP dominated House.

The fact that it has no chance there shows how overboard Rubio went.

On top of that, he abjectly lied to and decieved his own constituents and all of us. Saying one thing in english to us "gringos," and saying almost the exact opposite in Spanish to what he deemed were critical Latino groups.

Those actions have doomed him for any further long-term aspirations in the conservative movement.

Too bad...Marco, you consciously chose your support group and then made your bed with them. Now, you are going to have to lay in it.

I have no idea how Rubio will fare in Florida, but I do know that I will never, ever vote for Rubio.

Rubio has put ethnicity, and money ahead of America’s best interest.

Its truly amazing what gobs of money from the Open Border Lobby will do.

It fully illustrates that this party no longer represents us.

The GOPe would rather do battle with members of its own party than the leftwing because they are a faction of the left through their elitism.

I see Haley ‘mushmouth’ Barbour is the head of the organization funded by Zuckerberg that’s been running the pro immigration ads during Limbaugh’s show.

Anyone who listens to AM radio is assaulted non-stop by these pro Amnesty commercials paid for by Soros and Rove backed fake conservative groups.

It makes me want to throw the radio out the window.

Haley Barbour has been a registered lobbyist for the open border invaders for several decades now. And proud of it. Google "Haley Barbour lobbyist immigration"

One of the slickest hucksters in the GOP stables as well as having the stickiest fingers.

IIRC, his SIL was head of one of the ‘Hispanic’ Chamber of Commerce organizations in the state.

No conflict of interest there. Nope.

Obviously, Rubio wasn’t ready for prime time. And as a TEA Party candidate, there is absolutely no excuse for his obtuse behavior unless some NSA dirt is scaring him.

The republican national committee called me this week looking for money. I told them I only contribute directly to conservative candidates in order to avoid another rubio.

rubio killed himself and a large portion of the republican party.

he’s a democrat in drag and we will never trust him, or anyone who supports him, again

From here: Interesting that they refuse to stand before their constituents and explain why they voted FOR amnesty. Voting scores from Heritage Action for these CINO basturds:

Marco Rubio, 82 (that's surprising)
Jeff Flake, 64
Linda Graham, 50
John McCain, 48

DC euphemisms are funny. Americans for a Conservative Direction is as misnamed as the Affordable Care Act.

And note the NYT says "conservative American Action Network." LINK: Their video says the senate amnesty is supported by conservative (that word again) leaders like Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, and Jeb Bush

Will FL GOP voters buy it?

If Rubio wins his primary ( a big if), he will lose to whoever the Dems run. A huge chunk of conservatives will refuse to support him. He’s done.

The out-and-out lies show just how desperate the GOP-e really is. Rubio kept his promise? They really do think we are a bunch of idiots.

Rubio has single handidly pushed lifelong Republicans like me out of the Party. Rubio owns this...and I hope he has to eat this raw and cold every day for the rest of his life.

RE :”And note the NYT says “conservative American Action Network.” LINK: Their video says the senate amnesty is supported by conservative (that word again) leaders like Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, and Jeb Bush”

The most interesting part of that list is the inclusion of Rand Paul.

As you recall Rand mouth-talked amnesty as a positive general principle and he sweet talked Hispanics on it and not a surprise to me (or Perdogg) he voted against the bill and never actually said he supported it, but said he might if it was changed regarding border, he teased it..

So the massive $$$ amnesty coalition has all those clips of Rand Paul to use for their objective to pass amnesty but he ‘opposed’ the bill,

Rand is pretty slick(as a negative) too. And ironically Paul and Rubio are philosophical opposites. Paul is libertarian and Rubio is neocon(ie McCain, Grahamnesty)

Is this what we will see in 2016?
