Skip to comments.Lindsey Graham: Why is Rubio complaining about a bill that he helped write?
Posted on 06/18/2013 12:31:07 PM PDT by cotton1706
How do we put together a bill and then the guy who put it together says that he may not vote for it? Graham asked me. I just dont get what were doing here.
His specific complaint: that GOP Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a fellow member of the Senate gang of eight who had spent months drafting a bipartisan immigration reform bill, seemed to be backing away from the legislation
Graham needed Rubio to bless the deal and stick with it, not flinch at the first whiff of tea party gunpowder.
Gee does it matter what’s in the bill? And of course Rubio and these other idiot senators didn’t write it.
I’m no fan of Rubio’s but while Rubio may have written the bill he didn’t write all of the amendments and riders that have been tacked on to it.
Rubio is trying to play both ends against the middle. He wants to appear both for it and against it.
Schumer Republicans are hard to figure out. Nobody knows why they do what they do.

Why is Graham always supporting the Democrats?
It’s easy when you accept they are intentionally mislabeled Democrats.
Because Marco has his Co-hones in the ringer because Conservatives are telling him what they REALLY THINK!
Marco Rubio has a GREAT need to be liked, he cannot stand the criticism.
The F’ING GOP better figure out WHAT THEY ARE, and WHAT THEIR POSITION IS. This in-public infighting is ridiculous.
Are you from Planet earth? OR are you just not paying attention?
LOL! My GAYDAR sounds when I see him on TV.. Whoop WHOOP WHOOP!!! And Boehner with his tanning salon habit. Yikes. Change the name from ‘GOP’ to ‘GAYP’.
Look what they done to my bill ma
Look what they done to my bill ma
It was the only thing that I could do half right
And it’s turning out all wrong ma
Look what they done to my bill
With a slight edit.
We already know what they are Treasonous Traitors, in-case you missed it!
“Rubio, Rubio, wherefore art thou Rubio?” Goober was heard pleading. Bob
You're driving the last nail in your party's coffin and in the process destroying your nation as traditionally known, remember?
“This in-public infighting is ridiculous.”
I’m actually enjoying it if it’s genuine. RINO’s are used to doing the stabbing in the back, not being the ones being stabbed.
And in reality, this is not infighting, since Graham is not a republican (though he calls himself one).
May Lindsey’s Graham’s frustrations continue!!
What I am saying is that any bill in the Congress is usually much different when it is passed from committee than when it was drafted. It is not remarkable that a bill’s author has pulled their support from a bill especially with the advent of the ‘gut and amend’ process.
The GOP's belief that handouts to illegals will garner votes for the GOP is delusional. The GOP's failure to realize that Amnesty benefits illegals and Dems but not Americans or the GOP is astonishing.
Oh and, the GOP HELPING THE DEMS WIN EVERY ELECTION hereafter is SUICIDAL.
I think Lindsey was bullied in his childhood and he now retaliates and revenges that by taking positions that are in your face to the Tea Party conservatives. But I speculate, I’m no psychologist - it seems like the only plausible explanation - he thoroughly enjoys the negative attention from true conservatives and thoroughly enjoys the attention and conduit of the lame stream media. It’s a win win for him, and a lose lose for the country. It’s as despicable as a scandal ridden Democrat.
Its called blowback Senator.
No. The modern GOP is all for liberal ideals all on their own. And some are determined to keep electing more of them.
I just dont get what were doing here.
Finally Lindsey recognizes what Conservatives have known for years!
Marco Rubio found out the Gang of Eight were/are just Puppets of the White House
Oh that's easy, CORRUPTION
Lindsey, Why are YOU pretending the GOP will gain a single vote for this transparent pandering?
I’ll believe “assimilation” when I no longer have to “press 1 for English”.....
Why are YOU imposing slave wages on LEGAL immigrants, via this amnesty bill?
More drama here between Goober and Marco than there was between Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in Behind the Candlelabra.
question. isn’t lindsey a girls name?
answer. yes, yes it is.
Graham is right. Rubio is coming across as weak. I’d respect him more if he stood solidly one way or another. He seems like a light-weight to me.
Amen brother, WE CAN'T TRUST A SINGLE ONE OF THEM !!
As many of us know, Cubans have their own special immigration law: A Cuban touches American soil, and he is automatically an American citizen.
But nobody dares to challenge Rubio by asking him if that unfair and unequal law is going to be repealed so that Cubans can now be put in the general immigration population with all other immigrants.
Come on, Rubio, repeal that only-Cuban favorite immigration bill before you even consider new immigration laws.
“Graham needed Rubio to bless the deal and stick with it, not flinch at the first whiff of tea party gunpowder.”
Sorry Lindsey, but Rubio is still isn’t entrenched enough to disregard the will of the voters, yet. He’ll get there, but he might have to pretend to be conservative on a few more votes yet.
Remember, a RINO’s first priority is to their own political power, and not any principle, even that of backing up their own RINO allies and legislation.
“Lindsey Graham: Why is Rubio complaining about a bill that he helped write?” “When RINOs attack: Film at 11.”
Maybe its because Marco looked down and saw that both of his wrists were slit.
Well, Rubio is still going to be a puppet, even if he breaks with that gang, as long as he continues to be a RINO useful idiot.
