‘Flip-flops like this’: Sarah Palin calls out Sen. Rubio for supporting amnesty
Twitchy ^ | Sunday June 23, 2012

Posted on 06/23/2013 12:04:00 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

Sarah Palin @SarahPalinUSA:

Politicians wonder why we can't trust them? Campaign flip-flops like this and carve-out bribes in the Amnesty... http://fb.me/2IsL1uspC

Palin’s tweet links to a story from TownHall.com detailing Sen. Marco Rubio’s (D-Fla.) flip-flop over amnesty for illegal immigrants.

During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an “earned path to citizenship,” which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty.

Rubio, who won that 2010 election, is now the leading Republican in the U.S. Congress pushing for illegal aliens to be given the earned path to citizenship that he himself insisted was “code for amnesty” only three years ago

Rubio said what he said at the time, to get where he is today. Now that the fools have elected him, he’s full steam ahead to clear the path for “his people.” I just hope that the effort he’s leading today fails, and that the voters of Florida show him the door at the very first opportunity.

As far as I’m concerned, anyone who votes for this is voting AGAINST the American people. They will never, ever get a vote from me again. I may no longer be a Republican but I’ve still got a memory like an elephant. I never forget.

Amen. All who vote for this amnesty bill are traitors. I can understand the ideological motives of the America-hating communist democrats doing so, but the Republicans voting for it are doing it for the money. That makes them traitors for hire.

Rubio is one of the insiders now, a member of the elites who exercise power over the American people he is looting. He doesn’t care what Sarah or anyone beneath his station has to say to him.

I don’t understand why we need to give amnesty.

We have millions of unemployed or underemployed citizens as it is. Yet we want to give amnesty to millions here now, and allow millions more to immigrate, because we allegedly need workers in our economy. Jeb Bush says that these immigrants are fertile, and that this somehow makes the case for allowing millions of new immigrants, as well as amnesty for those already here.

We’re told that we are a nation of immigrants, and so based on this history, that means we can’t do anything about illegal aliens, or secure the border? We can’t enforce laws already on the books, such as laws against employing people in this country illegally? What the heck kind of world are we living in?

Yeah, but he does care about being a contender for the GOP presidential nomination a ways down the road.

Too bad it's going to take him getting his a** handed to him in the primaries for him to realize that he successfully relegated himself to the same status as John McCain and Lindsay Graham.

Actually, who am I kidding? He'll just blame it all on the mean and evil Tea Party Conservatives, who just aren't fair.

You mean “above” his station. Elected officials are barely a life form and certainly nothing to be compared to a private citizen.

Yep, Rubio's flip-flopped and lied about the illegal alien amnesty issue, but he's far from the first one. Here's what George W. Bush had to to say during the 2004 domestic policy debate with John Kerry

Now, it's very important for our citizens to also know that I don't believe we ought to have amnesty. I don't think we ought to reward illegal behavior. There are plenty of people standing in line to become a citizen. And we ought not to crowd these people ahead of them in line.

If they want to become a citizen, they can stand in line, too.

And here is where my opponent and I differ. In September 2003, he supported amnesty for illegal aliens.

2004 Bush Kerry debate

Weren't we fortunate to have a Republican president who opposed amnesty and rewarding illegal behavior, and to have avoided that amnesty pushing Democrat John Kerry? Playing word games and dishing out lies with the best of them.

IIRC, candidate Rubio wanted no part of Sarah’s help during his campaign.

It would appear they have different ideas about conservatism.

The national mood is going against everything Washington DC political establishment. Should Sarah Palin choose to run for president in 2016, she is well positioned to become the “people’s candidate”.

No, she is not. Palin may be right on the issues, but she has been destroyed in her private life and in the past year, she helped them do further damage to her own reputation.

This is really SAD. Sarah has to use Twitter to call out Rubio.

What are the chances of seeing Sarah Palin and Marco Rubio in the same Fox News studio at the same time where they are both employed? The same chance of seeing Superman and Clark Kent in the same room at the same time. After all Sarah gets a paycheck from Fox News. Rubio works for free in hopes of upping his poll numbers with mind numbed GOPe Fox viewers. If Sarah shared some face time on Fox with Marco, I bet she would not be bashful in asking Marco, what gives with this amnesty crap?

Facts are facts, you will never see Rubio confronted with the truth that Sarah Palin be packing around.

Rubio seems to always be appearing on Hannity where Sean shamelessly pleasures him in front of an onlooking world.

Illegal alien are just criminals who show no concern for our laws as long as they get what they want. If we are a country built on the law they should not be allowed to have citizenship. It looks to me that the only ones who want them here are the same ones who are only looking out for themselves and what they can get.

Excuse me please.

I pay pretty close attention to Sarah Palin, can you please be more specific?

I recall none of this. I recall Romney was our nominee last time, and Palin stood to one side.

But I do not recall anything about her “making a fool of herself”.

Do you perhaps have any examples?

I don’t propose giving them citizenship. I only propose keeping track of those who are already in the country and giving them some sort of ability to work here, similar to a Green card.

I propose giving driver’s licenses to illegals, accompanied by a full set of fingerprints and a prepaid insurance policy, which would expire whenever the insurance policy expired and could only be renewed in person with a finger print check.

Driving without a license would be grounds for deportation.

I did not see that sorry.

I do recall there were several debates though, and Romney did well in the first one.

What happened to him after that?

That was more to the point, since he was the candidate...

So you’d amnesty them all. Make them ‘legal’ despite their many felonies. And of course set them up for the inevitable “it’s only fair” path to citizenship.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Sarah Palin endorse or campaign for Rubio? I thought she did.

If so, that makes her criticism much more powerful, IMO.

Not sure what you are talking about. The Palin's personal life is just fine and NO ONE has damaged them, especially themselves.

I look at her critic's personal lives and see that they could only hope to have such a life as the Palins. Her critics are hypocrites of the highest order. I pay absolutely no attention to their caterwauling and neither would the voters if she garners the nomination.

Yeah I remember that night well(Almost vomited having to watch Obama get re-elected) it was a huge cat fight between O’Reilly and Rove because Rove refused to believe he was wrong and that Romney would lose. Sarah Palin wasn’t even there that night..and as far as this supposed hissy fit during the VP debate..all I have to say is LOL wut? Never happened..in fact Sarah Palin praised Paul Ryan for doing a good job during the debate, there was no hissy fit

Yeah but still, it’s very strange though. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if the twice unconstitutionally elected communist regime is threatening him in some way. There just seems to be an *awful* amount of RINOs lately doesn’t there? Remember: The M.O. of the admitted foreign born twice unconstitutionally elected Kenyan and his boy Axelpod is to dig up dirt of his opponents, getting “sealed” court records “unsealed” (except his of course). So it would not surprise me in the least if he is still doing this and holding it over their heads.

She did in effect get fired from Fox News when her contract was not renewed.

Methinks that had nothing to do with a singular act of insubordination that you refer to and I am unfamiliar with.

Sarah was not renewed because she could not tow the GOPe Party line and take her talking points from Tokyo Rove.

Whether Sarah was eventually renewed because she went begging on hand and knee to get her job back or whether they needed a token truthteller on Fox News is anyone's guess.

It would seem that Fox News needs Sarah as much if not more than she needs them.

Ailes and Tokyo Rove treat conservatives like dogs and having Palin spottily appear off prime time programming is there way of throwing conservatives a bone. The GOPe at Fox News believes us conservatives should be wagging our tails because Sarah gets some face time on their most obscure programming.

We have millions of unemployed or underemployed citizens as it is. Yet we want to give amnesty to millions here now, and allow millions more to immigrate, because we allegedly need workers in our economy.

Well, Rubio and his aides say we Americans can't cut it, we're lousy workers, don-cha-know.

It used to be, we needed these illegals to do the jobs Americans "wouldn't" do; now, according to Marco and his amigos in the Gang of Ocho, it's to do the jobs Americans "can't" do.

I agree, reluctantly. While I would not say ‘never’’, the odds are strongly against ever seeing a Palin presidency. I hope she’ll line up with a like minded conservative to run. Her backing would do wonders in the primary, and the candidate would not enter with the insurmountable negatives in the general election.

From my standpoint I disagree.

I believe she chose to spend four solid years with her family, and let Obama make a mess of things.

I think (hope) she’ll be back around in 2016 for the real thing.
