Skip to comments.Groundhog Day for Immigration (Rubio's plan is same as Dems)
Posted on 01/14/2013 8:33:57 PM PST by Bigtigermike
The Wall Street Journal profile on Rubios amnesty plan makes me want to take piano lessons or learn ice sculpture because its Groundhog Day for immigration policy, and its like yesterday never happened.
But the specific policies Ned Ryerson.......er...Rubio is selling are just the same old, same old: earned amnesty for illegal aliens plus de facto unlimited immigration, in exchange for promises to some day implement E-Verify and build more fencing.
Even worse, what makes me want to throw a toaster into the bath tub is the utter lack of awareness that nothing Rubios saying is even remotely novel. Either he or the writer, Matthew Kaminski, or both, dont seem to realize were hearing I Got You, Babe all over again. Rubios plan is described as one that charges up the middle, between the liberal fringe that seeks broad amnesty for illegal immigrants and the hard rights obsession with closing the door as though any element of Rubios proposal would be a deal breaker for the left.
This phony triangulation theme has been a hallmark of Republican politicians trying to convince their voters that theyre not just doing what the Democrats want them to do. After describing Rubios idea that there would be different stages of amnesty, we learn from the writer that The staged process wont please either the blanket amnesty crowd or the Minutemen except, of course, that the staged or earned amnesty was dreamed up by the Left in the first place

He is vague on border control as well
Just what we need, more Dem voters,
don’t forget those ‘back taxes’, that should balance the budget.
I will not be conned by this idiot .
Have you noticed all the post promoting this crap from
Certain posters ?
Is the RNC astroturfing here now ?
I suspect AMNESTY bill is the real stealth
Legislation the Dems and Bonehead want to ram thru whole distracting
All on the gun grabbing threats !
When Jim made the truce about Romney and the election last year, a lot of the Romneybots and Die-in-the-wool Republicans came out of the wood works and they are still here.
let me guess:, the GOPe made Rubio their pointman on immigration?
Rubio was doing this stuff on immigration back in his days in the FL legislature
I read some post saying how wonderful this plan was tonight !
It’s pure crap .
It’s Amnesty and nothing else !
Do these morons realize Amnesty will kill the GOP !!
Mexico has two socialist parties and will never
Vote conservative !
A young Mel Martinez !
Rubio, and now Ryan, are just younger parrots of McCain on this issue.
I posted in a similar thread a few days ago a quote from Rubio with my comment that he could have plagiarized that from McCain's website, because it said about the same blather McCain has been spewing for years.
Pubbies wonder why they can't win elections. Many of us thought it was because they couldn't get their message out. Now, I am thinking they have gotten their message out and the public isn't buying it.
We really do not have an opposition party at the national level. It is all just one big “bipartisan” CF in DC isn’t it?
Rubio, the cherub face, has been given the green light by the Bush Florida clan and the word and cash is out, to the Establishment, to put the little cherub out front, on this Jeb Bush priority- immigration. The Republican Establishment is oiling up the 2016 machine now, looking over the ponies for the next nomination, or help set the ticket with some pseudo conservative behind the main show- a sure pubbie socialist, who can parade well as a conservative, long enough to get through those primary contests attended by all those icky conservative patriotic types in those unabashedly RIDICULOUS hats!
The issues are already picked and picked only to please the socialist Establishment running the charade. Whom it is that gets to deliver the issue and lead on it will alternate between the ponies, and also between the TRIO; Twinky McCain, Lindsay Graham and their dupe, er, I mean protege, Kelly Ay o t’ McCain and Graham. Their appearance is like clock work, every quarter, every three months they’re giving us the business.
Rubio is a nothing POS.
Btw, the dear and honest guy, Paul Ryan will get out there too because.......all together now......”IT’S HIS TURN”. YEAHHHH!
I don’t see that Dead Kennedy quote on the link you provided.
Paul Ryan couldn’t even carry his own state of WI.
Rubio can go piss up a rope!!!!
Enforce existing law to the maximum and the illegals will all be gone in 6 months!!!
AMNESTY Bill PING
“let me guess:, the GOPe made Rubio their pointman on immigration?”
He’s not the only one. It’s going to be a full court press by the Treason Lobby.
And on radio you can already hear Sean Hannity, Hugh Hewitt and Michael Medved beating the drum for amnesty by another name. The cowards won’t even admit what they’re after.
Your right .
It’s a awful future with Bonner the lobbyist town drunk as the head of the GOP .
A soulless crook open to a payoff at any time !
