Time to choose: Do Rush, Hannity, and Levin love Rubio or America more?

Posted on 06/16/2013 10:00:00 PM PDT by teg_76

So a few a days ago Rubio comes out with a proposal for an amendment to ban Obamacare. He really gives us no credit for having any intelligence. If this immigration bill passes Obamacare will be set in stone. The electoral demographics of this country will be fundamentally altered, and in the words of Barack Obama, we will be fundamentally changed as a nation. Unless Lyndsay Graham is right and the illegals will love the Republicans if they help pass this amnesty bill...lol. These guys are so out of touch. If Mitt Romney would have made this an issue, we would have won...

So now is the time for Rush, Levin, and Hannity to decide if they would rather still be friends with Rubio and have this bill, which will destroy America as we know it, pass, or side with the American people and call Rubio out for what he is. Talk radio and the grassroots saved us from the Bush amnesty in 2007, but we are utterly failing to this point.

I don’t think any of them love Rubio.
Limbaugh has said he is very disappointed in and baffled by Rubio, but personally likes him.
Who knows about Hannity, I can never figure out what he thinks. It seems like he can state one sentence with fifteen different opinions.
Levin is reaming Rubio.

Yeah, the talkers’ misguided love for Rubio has made them, as a group, way to slow to respond properly to his traitorous bill.

At least Levin and Rush get it now, but they’ve been way too slow on the uptake.

I didn’t realize Levin is reaming Rubio. I must have missed it. What did he say? Did he go attack like he does with Boehner?

Truthfully, I’m beginning to feel about these guys as I do the MSM. They pushed The Won and now won’t criticize, no matter what he does.

Same thing with talk radio and Rubio. Or they know something I don’t.

Yes. What did Levin say about Rubio? He seems to be savaging everyone else associated with the illegal alien amnesty bill but leaving Rubio alone.

That’s true..it’s actually frustrating...he’s deservedly goes after Paul Ryan, McConnell, Jeb Bush, Graham/Mccain, etc.......but he will not touch Rubio, who is the main reason this bill has a chance. I think they don’t want to give up on Rubio yet, hoping he’ll back out. I’m not sure but either way Rubio has taken this far enough that for me personally, I would absolutely never vote for him. If it’s Hilary and Rubio in 2016, I will stay home. It really won’t make a difference in the long term. I will stay home. I absolutely will stay home, no matter how much I despise Hilary.

Barry got elected for no good reason other than he was a different color than the forty-three POTUSs that preceded him.

The ideological elitists such as Rush, Levin, and Hannity believe because Rubio is Hispanic he could do for Republicans what Barry did for the Democrats.

That is pretty cynical because if Rubio were elected, he would not do any more for the country than Barry has.

Neither guy possesses the experience nor leadership ability to lead a nation.

Barry was much smarter than Rubio however. Senator Barry NEVER tried to do ANYTHING as a senator. It NEVER entered Barry's mind to attempt to work with members of the other party. Barry understood that he needed the base to get the nomination before he would need independents to win the general election.

Country club Republicans with some ideological patter such as Rush, Levin and Hannity cannot sell a sellout like Rubio to the conservative base anymore than Crazy Annie Coulter could sell Romney to the conservative base.

Rubio shoots his loud mouth off too much without thinking. Barry played a shrewder game.

Rubio is melting down and whatever Rush, Hannity, and Levin are attempting to pawn as the real deal will be of no matter.

It is possible to have various categories of evaluations of people other that the two classifications that seem popular on discussion websites.

When we limit our evaluations of people to either (1) saviour d’ jour or (2) dead to me, we truncate our view of human nature and the variety of the makeup of the typical complex individual. Levin and the others see aspects of Rubio that they appreciate and thereby have found a category other than 1 or 2 to place Senator Rubio within pending a more lenghty exposure to the end results of this and other matters.

I don’t think opposition to an obviously bad piece of legislation requires an early limitation of categories of classification of one proponent of the shoddy deal. You voice reasoned objections, persuaade sensible people to rise up and defeat it.

Assasination of the character or soundness of an otherwise allied individual is the stuff of Alinsky. Sound conservative minds don’t rely upon such tripe.

I see your point...but this isn’t just any bill. This bill will absolutely change the course of this nation. It is too big to not be fully committed one way or the other in doing what it takes to stop it.

All I’m asking is that Levin treat Rubio the same way he is treating Paul Ryan. I think that’s fair given Rubio is the face of this bill.

Don’t feel too bad. Some of us spent the day with a guy claiming that voting for principles instead of voting to ‘win’ was the problem. He then said we should vote for Palin and Cruz.

Hello??? Last I looked, they were all about principled leadership. But logic isn’t a GOP fanboy strong suit.

Marco Rubio

born May 28, 1971 in Miami, FL

Parents were
Mario Rubio born in Cuba, naturalized Nov. 5, 1975.
Oria Garcia born in Cuba, naturalized Nov. 5, 1975.

Parents were NOT US Citizens at the time of his birth.

Marco Rubio is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.

Marco's status is the same as that of Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Hussein Obama, who is NOT a Natural Born Citizen.

Frankly, I'm getting a bit tired of Rush and his difficulty in being critical of Rubio. Just seems like Rush doesn't have it in him to be overtly critical of Rubio. Instead of castigating Rubio’s lying A$$, Rush says things like: “I'm just not sure why Rubio would support this...yada....yada...” Wow Rush, you sure know how to use the Golden EIB microphone to keep the GOP in check. NOT!

Heck, It seems to pain good old El Rushbo to even mention Boehner by name when slamming the GOP. Maybe it's time for Rush to move to New Zealand and retire. Me thinks he's lost some of his fire.

I recall how excited I felt when I heard that Rubio had been elected to the US Senate. Now, I wish he would return to his home in Cuba. And why won't he? He would be much happier living under the rule of his ideological soul mates, the Castro brothers.

Here's a winning ticket for 2016:

Palin/Gohmert

Those two will energize the base and result in a landslide of President Reagan proportions. Both are smart, passionate, fearless and unquestionably Conservative. Should Governor Sarah Palin and Congressman Louie Gohmert team up, America's rebound from the dismal days of Obama is assured.

The term “natural-born American” is not set in stone. The term was used to define the office of President as NOT a monarch, and to debar foreign princes from that office. . The question is whether Rubio was a subject of Cuba when he was born, and since he was born in the United States and his parents had in effect abandoned their allegiance to their homelands, and would formally renounce it.

I think Levin talked about Rubio Friday. He said that any Republican who supports the illegal alien amnesty bill is a traitor to this nation. He said that it will be the end of the possibility of any Republican being elected as President for this century.

He asked everyone to call their senator and tell them to vote no on the immigration bill. I think that is good advice, don’t you?

At bottom, the Constitution is still just positive law and the 14th Amendment added things to it never contemplated by the Philadelphia Convention. The only thing is sure is that someone John Peter Altgeld, who was as “American” as anyone else, was nonetheless debarred from the Presidency because he was born in Germany of German parents and bought to this country as a 3-year old.

I think it is good advice.

I think that after the specific verbal enthusiasm that Levin showed for Rubio earlier this year, he must call out Rubio by name in order to regain his credibility. Simply talking about “Senators” in general won’t cut it with me after he spent so much time praising Ribio, Rubio, Rubio.

Until Levin specifically identifies Rubio as a leader of the group that is seeking to destroy this country through legalizing the illegals after the fact, everything out of his mouth will sound hypocritical and sanctimonious.

I just hope we do not lose the House.

Personally, I think Giuliani is a more intellectually honest candidate than Rubio, Paul, or Jeb Bush. Rudy does not pretend to be a social conservative as do the other three.

But New Hampshire insures that a populist like Rudy will never get the nomination of either party and we have to choose between losers like Barry, Juan McCain and Mittens Romney.

Marco Rubio is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.

And by failing to direct any inquiry into this simple statement is where the "Conservative Talk Show Hosts" left Planet Reason.

Whether it be Lawyer Levin, a self-proclaimed brilliant constitutionalist, or former Rock'n'Roll DJs Limbaugh and Hannity, they have refused to even look at Article II eligibility. They have refused to even consider it as a valid constitutional question. They have refused to urge the SCOTUS to do its job and accept an appeal on the matter. The issue, for them, does not exist.

Not one of them has even mentioned Sheriff Arpaio's investigation as a news story. The issue: the false documentation; the forgery, does not exist for them.

But one can hardly blame these mattress and gold bar radio salesmen. For neither does the issue even exist for elected Republicans in Congress and in Governors' mansions. The issue does not even exist for State Attorneys General and election officials.

The present administration ... which should not even exist ... is built upon the faulty premise that Barack Hussein Obama was eligible to be a candidate for POTUS. Nothing good has, or even can, come from it.

I have heard Levin and Limbaugh say that they do not support rubio and that the bill is horrible... they will not attack the man personally but they certainly have separated from him and have called him a fool etc for being played by the left... I disagree... I think rubio is a leftist and always has been. He is a role player.

If it was ANYONE ELSE who promised We The People secure borders, then was caught on VIDEO saying LEGALIZATION FIRST to the Mexicans, they would be on them like white on rice!

And they should be.

Why aren’t these men screaming about this! It would go a long way to killing this thing! They would rather court favor with Rubio than save their nation and our people?

I am so infuriated that they won’t do this! I’m not listening to them until they do! Maybe if their ratings plunged they’d understand the fury we feel and the absolute contempt we hold for Rubio and his LIES!

Ongoing lies! Those ads are still all over the airwaves and he continues to deceive the American people.

CALL HIM OUT!
