Rubio doomed any presidential hopes he had by teaming up with Chucky Schumer.
If Rubio sticks with the Gang of 8 that is opposed to allowing debate or amendments to their proposed legislation, then I see Rubio as someone who is diametrically opposed to my own beliefs. So, the short answer to the question as to whether it will hurt his Presidential chances is—YES!
Schumer, Durbin, McCain, Grahamnesty, what could go wrong?
Rub already agreed to ‘path to citizenship’. Since then he's been playing ‘bad cop’ with the ‘the bill isnt tough enough’ line.
If its the second and it all blows up that's even better...Obama gets nothing
Any “reform” that doesn’t have as a first step the total control of every kind of access to this country - border, airlines, visas, etc. — is simply keeping what we now have.
The only change that matters is total control of border and access to the country. Period.
Anything else is eyewash.
If Rubio goes forward with anything that does not LEGITIMATELY include a real control means that Rubio already has given up on the presidency.
His chances of being elected are doomed. But he’ll be at the top of Roves’s RINO nomination list. I am now calling those who keep voting for obamas’ policies Rove Republicans.
Getting him involved in this and giving it visibility is definitely a "rope-a-dope" strategy on the part of the left.
Geez, I hope so.
The age-old advice parents give to their teenagers.
Paul/Cruz (or Cruz/Paul) 2014 !!
Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal are not eligible to serve in the Office of the pPresident or Vice President, because they are not natural born citizens of the United States as required by the natural born citizen clause of the Constitution. The fact that they were born in the United States with the eligibility to adopt native born U.S. citizenship does nothing to change the fact they were natural born citizens of Cuba and India respectively as a consequence of their parents being citizens of those nations at the time of birth. The natural born citizen clause was written for the express purpose stated by John Jay of preventing a person born with allegiance to a foreign sovereign from serving as commander of the American Army in the Office of the President after the adoption of the U.S. Constitution. Just as a naturalized U.S. citizen is diqualified from the Office of the President because they were natural born citizens of a foreign nation owing allegiance at birth to a foreign sovereign, the person native born in the United States who is also a natural born citizen of a foreign nation owing allegiance at birth to that foreign sovereign is also disqualified from the Office of the president for formerly owing allegiance to the foreign sovereign.
Rubio is already off my list.
He isn’t a NBC to start with. Voting for Rubio would legitimise the reign of the turd we have now, who is also not a NBC.
Yes : I know many do not feel that way, It doesn’t matter.It’s the truth.
His stance on Amnesty only nails down the lid
Only the lowest form of Schmuck would work with Chuck Schumer.
It will, as far as I am concerned.
And the same with Rand Paul.
They are both either naive that border security will be enforced [that can be done with EXISTING laws, if they really intended to do it], or they are in on the shell game the career politicians have been playing for decades.
He’s toast. He probably switches parties because he has zero chance of wining the nom on the right.
“He(Rubio)will get a needed stature bump”.That’s a fact-he’s “elevated” himself to “sell out” status in my book.I regret voting for him-won’t make that mistake again.
The premise of the article implies that a Republican would even have a shot at winning the White House in a future election.
Demographic trends, along with the dems’ entitlement-based structural advantages, have put the Presidency out of reach. The electorate was D+6 in November, and there’s no reason to believe that spread will be any tighter in 2016. It probably will expand to D+8. Any drama in future Presidential elections will occur in the democrat primary. It’s no longer a matter of whether the GOP nominee is conservative enough... the problem now is the electorate is shifting hard left.
This isn’t pessimism... it’s reality. Time to concentrate on winnable races at the Congressional, Senate and state levels.
So now Marco Rubio, a presidential hopeful, is all-in for immigration reform, with all the potential for disaster that entails. Why is he doing it?
Q#2: Prey tell...why did Rubio vote to confirm John (Fonda) Kerry as Sec of State? That was the last straw on the Rubio wagon for me.
To me he has shown himself to be nothing but another New World Order socialist.
People need to wake up and understand that ALL of the republican leadership are puppets of the New World Order, and this includes many of our conservative radio and cable TV talking bobble heads.....
I'm looking for anything smart that Mutt Romney did in the primaries.
