RUSH: We go to immigration. In a remarkable turn of events, all eight Gang of Eight members voted to table the Grassley amendment, to have control of the border for six months before the amnesty kicks in. And, by the way, don't call it amnesty. It isn't amnesty. That's the latest claim from the powers that be. The Grassley amendment to the Gang of Eight bill simply said we would gain control of the border for six months before any other aspect of the bill -- which is exactly what we were told was supported from the get-go. That's exactly what we were told the condition was: Border security first, or nothing. Now of course that's out the window. So is the Grassley amendment out the window with control of the border for six months.
And again, this despite the sponsors having -- I don't know. I thought I was promised. I thought we were all promised that enforcement would be the key here. I also thought there would be an open amendment process. There's polling data that shows the American people want enforcement first by a 4-to-1 margin. But none of this makes any sense. Try as I have, I can't understand how it makes any sense. I don't understand how the Republicans do not understand what they're doing to themselves with this. I do not understand how it is they do not see what's happening. I don't understand how they don't get what the Democrats are doing, how the Democrats are playing them. I don't get it.
We've talked about this. The Hispanic vote was not even 8% of the electorate. There was a poll out -- I mentioned this to you some weeks ago -- if Romney had got 70% of the Hispanic vote -- and no Republican ever has the -- he still would not have won. The Republicans got 37% of the Hispanic vote back in 1984. Then in 1986, they did amnesty. Then they got 30%. They lost 7% of the Hispanic vote after amnesty in 1988 election when George H. W. Bush ran. The polling data is clear: 70% of the Hispanic voters are gonna vote Democrat no matter what. You bring 11 to 12 million new people out of the shadows, and they're -- I don't know what I'm missing. On the surface, what it appears is -- and I can't believe this. It appears that the Republicans really do fear what the Democrats tell them, that the Hispanics hate you, the Hispanics don't like you, the Hispanics are never gonna vote for you unless you change your opinion on immigration.
I try to put myself in the position of being a Republican in the House or the Senate. I can't for the life of me understand it. I don't understand how they don't see what this is going to do to their party. For the life of me, I don't understand it. Nobody has been able to make me understand what I'm missing. What is the secret that we don't get? What's the secret that we're missing, that they know, that we don't know? Because, on the surface, this doesn't appear to make any sense.
just was listening to this. He is right. The Republicans have lost their minds. What the heck is going on in Washington?? Do we the people need to go there and just be standing over our Senators and Congressman all the time reminding them of their duties?

El Rubio thinks that illegals will rush in droves to vote for Republicans now. The truth is, their might be a couple of dozen who will, offset by 10’s of thousands of law-honoring conservatives who will be lost.
So hwat have you done RUSH to stop it?
Oh that’s right. You allow RINO FRAUD Marco McCain to come on your show and lie thru his teeth.
Shame on you Rush! You were played like a fool.
Rush, tell us, does this make any sense?
Rubio is a traitor!
What they know is the partial contents of their NSA files.
Apparently that’s enough to vote for la raza nation.
Power, mistaken belief they can extend their second-tier positions longer(maybe not - maybe just a fricking excuse for now to engender themselves to the Democrat First-Tier Powerati)......
These RINOS are traitors who value their DC power over and above all else. The parties, the White Hut visits, the pleasant visits to CPB, CBS/ABC/NBC Sunday shows. A pleasant column in WaPo when they eat enough Democrat sh!t, etc. They want to amass power, but that power associated with doing right and good. Just enough to feather their filthy ass personal nests and damn everyone else.
Damn them all. I saw “White House Down”, “Olympus is
Down” or whatever trailers - I was rooting for North Korea or whoever the non-Muslim terrorists were.
What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big ideaa new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind: peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law.

” Oh thats right. You allow RINO FRAUD Marco McCain to come on your show and lie thru his teeth.
Shame on you Rush! You were played like a fool.”
I quit listening because of this. Started listening when it was still a local show (1988)
No doubt. It’s why his son married a Mexican national. They’re building an empire and dynasty.
Something that’s being missed is it does not matter if the Republicans benefit or not (and I agree with you that it wont). What is right is right, what is wrong is wrong. Period.
The immigration process begins in the home country of the would be immigrant not in the host country after having illegally crossed the border. To imply that immigration has anything to do with illegals is a code-word for Amnesty and to refuse to admit that is just OUTRIGHT dishonest.
Who is “we,” paleface?
well maybe that would be a start but I would think they would arrest us.
El Rubio thinks illegals will rush in droves to vote for a hispanic candidate.
He thinks this bill assures his political future.
Rush the reason you don’t get it is because you are not a corrupt, graft ridden rodent who would sell your soul for another term on Capitol Hill.
Its about creating a ruling class and a serf class. Those in Washington hope to become an hereditary aristocracy.
Republicans and Democrats are both in on it, but they need dependent serf voters, not free men, to vote it into being.
I love Rush —totally adore him. But he has been suckered by Rubio.
Rush loves Rubio and can’t see the truth that he’s a very young and somewhat ethnic BOB DOLE.
Rubio is Gerald Ford, Rubio is McCain.
Rubio is part of the Loyal Opposition, and he’s a bum.
Rush....I've been played
Rush, Levin, Hannity all repeated what a nice guy Rubio is....as he pushes to help transform the country, at the expense of American citizens and legal immigrants.
Rush has even stated this bill would go nowhere without "conservative" Rubio name attached to it
...all to deceive the public
