We really should be thankful that Marco showed us his true self.

He really played us all very well. You lost me Marco. Buh Bye.

If Rubio thinks America will “make money” on amnesty he is crazy.

This is what D.C. does to people. We send Marco Rubio and a few years later we get a Maxine Waters.

I wish I knew how to do parody songs a la Paul Shanklin.

“Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Senate’s Gang of Eight, says part of the reason is that the federal government can’t afford to secure the border on its own and needs financial help from the immigrants themselves, in the form of fines paid when they are legalized. “

Rubio removing all doubt as to the degree of idiot he is.

Billions for foreign adventures though.

The beltway gang has nothing but contempt for the people that pay their salaries. The septic tank needs to be drained.

This guy has no respect for the American voters, especially Republicans. If he is down to using border security as a reason for promoting the border’s violators, he has sold the last vestige of his soul.

I was afraid Rubio would wind up going this route. I am very skeptical of people these days.

I’m not convinced he played us at all. We’re so hungry for a Conservative that we fall in love the first nice thing they say.

We’ve got to get off that kick. Christy, Rubio, first one person does it then another.

The guy's a fool. We don't want 11 million more illegals. Send them home. Put them in prison. Jail the people who hire them.

Americans are burdened up to the hilt. We have children to help, Detroit to support on disability, the IRS and their lavish parties, the FBI to pay to spy on American citizen who happen to be conservative... The country we loved is becoming a third world hellhole.

It's enough. Our generosity is tapped out. Our taxes are high enough. The country.s broke. Isn't that enough? We gave and gave and gave and we're tired of it. If Rubio wants to personally support a few hundred of these people he can do it...he can send them checks from his own account.

Illegals overstay their welcome because they get free stuff, get IRS refunds for fake children back home, and do not pay taxes.

If we tax them, they will self deport

(Note- I am NOT suggesting all illegal imigrants are on welfare and won’t work, there are infact many good people, hard workign individuals who do truly just want a better life- and are willign to work and contribute to htis coutnry if given hte opportunity to do so- but stats shwo an alrmingly high number of illegals ARE on welfare, do collect food stamps, ARE abusign our systems, and the stats also show an alarmingly high number of VIOLENT CRIMINALS coem across the border every year- to the tune of 80,000 violent criminals every year- every one of these 80,000 will ahve to move to a neighborhood somewhere- and be a danger to that whole comunity- Is thsi the person Rubio thinsk is goign to give a crap abotu obeying our laws and paying for border security?

Is he really this nuts or does he want us to think he's nuts?

I originally just thought he's merely another phony, lying politician, pretending we didn't remember when he uttered the words, that he'd never, ever vote for any bill that didn't put border security first!

Now, with this, he's worse than a phony lying politician, he's pathological!

RE :”Rubio: We need to legalize immigrants so they can pay for border security,”

With this level of dishonesty (to us ) in the GOP it makes me wonder what wabbits they will pull out of a hat to get our support.

Word has it that Issa got himself in a trap on the IRS scandal.
But expect more smoke screen rants to cover up their deceitfulness on amnesty.

Back in the 1970’s I would accept the mainstream media’s characterization of someone as a “conservative” and then get burned when they said or did something different.

Now we’ve got talk show hosts saying guys like Rubio and Ryan are “conservative” and I get a laugh out of it because I’m not being fooled anymore.

The mask is off and all the tough speeches and YES votes on phony symbolic bills or NO votes on bad bills that end up getting passed anyway mean nothing to me.

Over 90 percent of the Republican elected officials are phonies with no principles.

Those 70 or so folks who are challenging Boehner on amnesty for illegal immigrants are just putting on a smoke blowing show to make it look good for us folks back home and help win their primaries next year.

I will not vote for my GOP Congressman in the primary or general election next year because he is a phony who supported Boehner for Speaker in the first place.

But, it isn’t much different than the ‘jobs Americans won’t do’ canard from the previous administration.

These guys will use anything, except the truth, to try to sell amnesty (or whatever they are calling it this go-round).

With AMERICAN’S Money to begin with? With food Stamps?

I agree with this.  There are hard working folks too.  None the less, they DO NOT belong here.  We can't have an enclave of 30,000,000 people here who are citizens of other nations.  That's about 75% of the population of California, the most populace state in the nation.  Spread these people around and they can impact negatively the elections in half or more of the states in our nation.  We can't simply look at them and go limp.  We have to face the problem, and them going home is the only right thing to do.  We cannot bastardize our laws to accomodate the invading hoards.  And that is what is on the table right now.

Respectful (kinda) Advice to Mister Rubio:

Stop trying to make ridiculous rationale for your ridiculous AMNESTY!

The GOP, YOU, and our fine Country are the big losers on your little arrangement with the Democrats.

Make up a graceful exit, and just stop the legislation.

It's simple, without airtight border security IN PLACE, and without E-verify IN PLACE, YOU and WE and America are on the wrong end of this deal with the dark side.

DEAL FROM STRENGTH NOT WEAKNESS ( I recommend that you say this over and over until you think you have it.).

I am still developing a sense of what a Conservative is.  We should all evaluate such things as we mature.  Some folks don't.  That's a shame, and a national disgrace.  I voted for the Republican in all elections, but I was fooled by slight of hand a lot.  I didn't realize how Left Nixon was.  Other Republicans of the day were problematic as I grew up.  It wasn't until the early 1990s that I began to see things more clearly, and realized I still had a lot to learn.    
Back in the 1970’s I would accept the mainstream media’s characterization of someone as a “conservative” and then get burned when they said or did something different.

I agree.  And the real shame is, Ryan (the younger) has some great instincts.  Unfortunately he has bitten off a big mouth full of B. S. in this immigration debate IMO.  I'm glad you're not fooled anymore.  At least you're asking the right questions.
Now we’ve got talk show hosts saying guys like Rubio and Ryan are “conservative” and I get a laugh out of it because I’m not being fooled anymore.

They should mean something to you.  We should give credit where credit is due, and be skeptical knowing what we know.  I don't have a problem with giving Clinton some credit if he does the right thing.  I have been known to do so a time or two.  I wouldn't overplay it though.  I gave a very qualified approval on the point only.
The mask is off and all the tough speeches and YES votes on phony symbolic bills or NO votes on bad bills that end up getting passed anyway mean nothing to me.

I have come to that conclusion also.
Over 90 percent of the Republican elected officials are phonies with no principles.

To be honest, I think some of them are serious.  I honestly can't say how many of them are just blowing smoke.  I fear it's a lot more of them than I would like to think it is.
Those 70 or so folks who are challenging Boehner on amnesty for illegal immigrants are just putting on a smoke blowing show to make it look good for us folks back home and help win their primaries next year.

If he's in the general, I'd support voting for him.  I would do everything in my power to make sure he wasn't though.  I understand your thoughts on it, and I have withheld my vote due to Republican intransegence.
I will not vote for my GOP Congressman in the primary or general election next year because he is a phony who supported Boehner for Speaker in the first place.
