Mike Pence has made statements and proposals in the past that were more than just wishy-washy regarding illegal immigration, pissant.
He had a legalization plan, code for amnesty, back in 2006. He spoke at CPAC last year, while the GOProud controversy was raging and many social conservatives declined to attend as a result. He has a little earmark pork problem, too.
So, why do you think he might be a RINO killer? He’s not immuned to the charge of being a RINO himself.
Mike Pence HAD an amnesty plan, though he called it a guest worker plan. It was not as atrocious as McCain-Kennedy, but still sucked badly.
Mike Pence for the past two years has said that he no longer supports any form of amnesty or work plan, and has reverted to enforcement only.
So when it comes to amnesty, Palin, Barbour, Jeb, Perry, Rudy, Johnson are all still raging amnesty queens. Huck and Mitt both supported McCain-Kennedy until they rn in 08, then pretended they never did. Only DeMInt, Bachmann, Cain and Paul have any standing to criticize Pence’s former plan.
Everyone spoke at CPAC last year. And earmarks are a meaningless red herring.
Pence is not even close to a RINO.
