Voice of practicality here, and flame if you want, because I’m leaving town:
This is going to happen.
GOP might as well agree like Rubio did and take some of the political credit from Obama. That’s why he’s doing this, politics. He doesn’t care about hispanics or any of us.
The bigger issue, which should be screamed by Republicans, is that Obama has no respect for separation of powers or the Constitution, that he’s a power-grabber. That might resonate.
And it’s legitimate. No telling what he’ll do between November and January 20 if he loses.
I completely agree with you.
The real problem is Obama's continued usurpation of the powers of the legislative and judicial branches. While anti-immigrant folks go apoplectic over the immigration issue (without regard for the fact that this may be the only reasonable compromise anyway), they will raise enough noise that the rise of the dictatorship will get overlooked.
I’m sorry, but I don’t believe you when you say Rubio is just doing this for politics. I have not trusted him for a while, though can’t remember what it is about him that made me doubt him. This just confirms my doubts.
Yeah, screw the Constitution and the rule of law. 'Bout time the dinosaur GOP figured out what time it is.
What Rubio should have said:
Obumbi has just crowned himself Dictator and thus made himself a legal target for capture by our Military Officiers who have pledged ....”I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;” and if the POTUS is a domestic enemy, then he is the enemy.
Presidential Oath of Office
I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
odumbi has broken his oath. All Military Officers should Arrest him ASAP.
Rubio is throwing a great opportunity away. An opportunity to be a great American Leader and instead grasping to the chance of being a great politician
Rubio vete para el carajo, cobarde.
This “leniency” is, and has been S.O.P. for a long time and the extremes on this forum need to own it and celebrate it, not play the hate-filled fools for Obama. We simply cannot create an underclass of people in the U.S.
In Georgia we tried using parolee and unemployed labor instead of Mexicans (who fled the state after harsh rules were passed). Guess what, homey don’t play picking’ crops and millions of $ rotted in the fields.
We are extremely fortunate to have ernest, hardworking Christian Latinos instead of Muslims as our imported labor, and they are grateful for the noblesse oblige of English masters instead of cruel Spaniards.
