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
Palins tweet links to a story from TownHall.com detailing Sen. Marco Rubios (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.
Way to go, Sarah!!
At least something good has come from the Gang of h8: it’s good to finally meet the real Marco Rubio!
Yes and Amen!!!!!!
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?
Hey Marco, how’s it feel to get beaten up by a girl?
Hey Marco, hows it feel to get beaten up by a girl?
good one. worthy of a bumper sticker
Because the GOP is run by cheap labor billionaires like Adelson Koch Brothers HEB grocery stores and Moron Roves feeds them Luis lies
You mean “above” his station. Elected officials are barely a life form and certainly nothing to be compared to a private citizen.
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.
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.
Yep. Kelly Ayotte is another flipper on the issue.
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.
