Michelle Malkin Goes after Marco Rubio for Backing ‘Tyrant’ Obama’s Immigration Plan
Mediaite ^ | 8/15/13 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 08/15/2013 6:21:32 AM PDT by jimbo123

Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin slammed what she called Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) latest rationale for passing comprehensive immigration reform; that President Barack Obama will enact reforms unilaterally with or without the GOP’s support. She called Rubio’s latest plea to conservatives “craven” and said that he should “go down fighting” against immigration reform rather than conceding that those reforms were already fait accompli.

“To argue to conservatives who believe in limited government that we should pass this massive amnesty monstrosity because Obama is going to do it anyway smacks of the worst kind of political expedience,” she continued. “I think that Marco Rubio’s higher ambitions have clouded his brain,”

So is she wrong or is Levin? Because Levin called Rubio, his friend, a ‘true conservative”.

Both cannot be right.

I love Michelle Malkin. She’s usually correct, and her arguments are well supported.

However, America is so far gone that a conservative commentator is viewed in the same light as David Duke.

Unless the liberal media attacks, Americans don’t even notice.

The correct descriptive is “treacherous tyrant “

Except, when playing against the race card in rejoinder to say, Dingy Harry, when it must be “treacherous black tyrant”

Easy one. Levin is wrong—just as he was about Hatch and Ryan.

Should be an easy one, but wait until his fanclub shows up to explain away that little detail. They always do.

If they would admit he screwed up and if HE would admit he screwed up, conservatism would be a lot better off. But until people start holding him and Beck and the rest to a standard, It’s no different than Kardashian celeb worship.

I don’t think Levin is sticking by the impression he shared of Rubio before Schumer co-opted him.

Mark Levin has sold out unfortunately. I count myself a former Levin fan, I turned against Levin when I heard him cut the Liberal Republican Rubio so much slack.

Mark Levin has a depressing demeanor, so I’m much happier not listening to him!

Marco got his reputation of a RINO the old fashioned way.

He earned it.

The basic conflict is between those who want Liberty and those who want Totalitarianism.

For over a century various names have been applied by the advocates of Totalitarianism to their groups such as “Progressive,” “Socialist,” and “Communist.”

All such names are based on the King-Slave Style of governance.

The last King-Slave System practiced in America was the Plantation System which ended in a horrific Civil War, and consequences that we are still recovering from today.

Currently, the King-Slave Model has been sold to America as a “Safety Net,” and eagerly embraced by the “47 % “ who pay no person homage to their King.

The 53 % are being led by Republicans who are afraid of EFFECTIVELY opposing the King.

Hence, we have a watershed position in time rapidly approaching where we, the 53 % who pay our personal Federal Income Taxes, must choose between changing the Leaders of the Republican Party, or continue to financially support these same cowardly “leaders.”

Partial Government control is Socialism.

There is partial Liberty with Socialism.

Total Government control is Communism.

There is no Liberty with Communism.

Conservatives are dedicated to conserving Liberty.

The Federal politicians who support whole or partial Government control are either Socialists or Communists.

Conservatives should not donate money or time to these Socialists or Communists.

Will you LEAD, follow, or get out of the way?

Our sorry Democrats and RINOs in Congress have chosen to follow as America continues to not oppose “The Man” in “The Big House” at 1600 Plantation Avenue, in the District of Corruption.

What say all of you?

Wish he would. He has done a lot of good for conservatism in the past. But his support of the man heading the amnesty push is pathetically stupid.

I just don’t see a difference between libs rushing out to buy the new shoes Kim K wears to be like her and live vicariously and people on the right ‘buying’ the crap that Rubio is a true conservative’ is in any way correct or letting Levin slide on it.

That statement helped give Rubio power and leverage to push amnesty further and he did.

Levin, if we get this fiasco forced on us, has a share of blame and he should either be tarred with it or apologize for it.

The real problem is that there are no political consequences for the politicians who are screwing us. They keep getting reelected and retaining their leadership positions. We get the government we deserve.

And that has been my point for years and people call me everything but a white man over it.

When the GOP saw we would WILLINGLY vote for a guy who was against EVERYTHING we CLAIM to believe in, it was a green light to go full metal liberal. And they did.

We proved that we are paper tigers.

Lets not forget how many people on this site supported Rubio at first. Before this ‘plan’ he had always stated we needed immigration reform.

Levin does not always get it right. Michelle Malkin almost always does.

Marco Rubio is an opportunistic little political hack who thought he would jump on the immigration train and ride it into the Whitehouse. If he said it was raining I would still go look out the window.

They were warned by people who ‘knew’ him/in his area. They chose to follow the lesser evil doctrine. They got a greater evil for their trouble. Because lesser evil never stays lesser once given power.

But even seeing reality unfold, people still say thats what we must do because the Rubios of the GOP are better than the Rubios of the Dems.

Sometimes a Rubio is just a Rubio...

I can only think vaguely of a couple times I have disagreed with MM. But Levin I disagree with a lot more lately.

I think it was more along the lines of a person with a racial heritage that could take votes from Dems. Desperate to win and able to overlook faults.
Having read the immigration quotes before everything else i was wary of Rubio early on. I have no such reservations with Cruz. None at all.

So far Cruz is All American. He is proving to be the real deal. I was skeptical but hopeful of him and he has surpassed by far my expectations. I hope he sticks to it once the full bore of the RINO/MSM/Lib guns are leveled at him...and he’s almost there now. I think/hope he will stay strong.

All these years, she never wavered....never backed off.

She is by far, my favorite.

That’s my take on her also.

Let me get this straight. You're anti-Levin, right? < rimshot>

I think that Beck and Levin are the greatest assets that the Tea Party has right now.

I am anti putting your ‘friends’ over your country and calling Gang of Ocho Amnesty authors “True Conservatives” ahead of your country and thereby helping to empower the GOP to force it on us.

Aren’t you?

I am against the repeated claims that the most important issue affecting America and that will likely end it can be obtained by tuning in next week.

Aren’t you?

I do not think we need either supposed conservative mouthpiece pulling crap like that.
