Rubio not happy with GOP rep for calling illegals “undocumented Democrats”
HotAir ^ | Tuesday June 8, 2013

Posted on 06/18/2013 11:08:01 AM PDT by Bigtigermike

Referencing a Jay Leno one-liner, Burgess questioned fellow conservatives about the wisdom of giving citizenship to “11 million undocumented Democrats.” Laughter, some of it nervous, spread throughout the room. But not everyone found Burgess’ crack funny. According to several people who attended the June 5th gathering, Rubio glared at Burgess.

This account, confirmed by multiple members and staffers, sheds light on what is perhaps the most politically obvious — and perpetually underplayed — conservative argument against providing citizenship to the nation’s illegal immigrants. With all the noise surrounding the debate over policy specifics — security measures, enforcement triggers, future flow, interior oversight — there is still an underlying political argument whispered among some of Congress’s most conservative members: After 71 percent of Hispanics voted for President Obama in 2012, why should Republicans add millions more to the voting rolls?

More than once recently I have heard the apparently new
phrase: “Pre-Certified Americans.” (no kidding!)

It is good to be almost certified.
It is good to be American.

Therefore, it is better to be a Pre-Certified American
than to be an undocumented anything.

May God save the English language from such torture!

maybe he’s upset because he believes the GOP can give away free stuff every bit as well as Dems and should not be considered underachievers at it.

Well, that's what they ARE, Marco. The chances that ANY of them will be 'Pubbies is 0.00000000000000nil%!

With every passing day, Rubio provs he is NOT a conservative.

phrase: “Pre-Certified Americans.”

I think the one that the elite car dealers use fits well also:

"Certified Pre-owned."

Just like the last two GOP candidates. The GOP can no longer be trusted, and
finding them out is as simple as who they are funding.

FUMR, I’m calling them ILLEGAL ALIENS, UNDOCUMENTED DEMOCRATS, and whatever other perfectly accurate term I want to lay on them.

I’d also like to call them GONE BACK TO MEXICO!!!!

That’s a primary element of a good joke or humor attempt: Truth must be present in order for people to connect to the humor.

The other factor act work against this bald-faced political power grab is the IRS story that’s been brewing for over a year on the Additional Child Tax Credit that the undocumented are cashing in on at astounding rates. There was a FR thread earlier this morning on it and included comments from the IG of the IRS on how slimy this practice is.

Undocumented Dems that are raiding the treasury through the claiming of dependents that aren’t even present in the US = we’re circling the drain faster than anybody even thinks.

Instead try “Undocumented Mexican citizens”, to be absolutely sure that these individuals are not Klingons, but people who already have “membership” in their own country, but now reject their home and want to live in our home.

Perhaps the US government should offer to give Mexico foreign aid to change its form of government, so its economy improves, and there are economic incentives for its people to want to stay in their home country.

Rubio is Cuban first. Being American is a after thought. He played the game well enough to get elected, and can now push his real agenda. He is McCain with a accent. Invite the world, invade the world.

Why do these guys run as Republicans if their hearts are elsewhere? Probably so they don’t have to do battle in a democrat primary.

When the political winds shifted in Texas in the 1980s, just about every major Democrat switched to the GOP. However, many kept beliefs more at home in the party of LBJ and FDR than that of Reagan.

They're at best Rockefeller Republicans. Many are simply undocumented big government Democrats who run as Republicans.

Rubio has contracted the dreaded Rivera/Williams syndrome.

Named after Geraldo Rivera and Juan Williams, those suffering from this affliction may appear somewhat normal on occasion. However they seem to almost completely lose their ability to think, communicate and conduct themselves rationally when discussing race or ethnicity.

When challenged or questioned on any topic having to do with race or ethhnicity, victims of Rivera/Williams syndrome generally display extremely defensive and aggressive conduct.

This is often characterized by them becoming loud and argumentive, shouting down others and resorting to name calling and casting aspersions at those they disagree with.

They are often seen shaking their heads violently and holding their hands over their ears when others speak.

I prefer “criminal Democrats”, but some would see that as a redundant phrase.

You say illegal democrats.

I say criminals.

Same thing no matter how you look at it, and Rubio has their back either way.

Criminals yes...but that has no meaning to them...they are going for the gold just the same while we squawk and belly ache about it.

..and BTW..Rubio isn’t doing this alone....there are plenty others on board that train who could have otherwise stepped up to the plate...they’re not..nor will they be doing so.

This is a perfect example of Michelle saying long ago.... if they had to they’d drag us kicking and screaming to the future....unfortunately what was once our side is helping.

This is exactly why I'm finished with the GOP. What good does it do having a so-called opposition party if they keep going along with the other party. There is compromise, and there is bending over and spreading, to use a crude saying. The GOP has been doing just that. You wouldn't know they had the House. I'm about ready for the Tea Party movement to go to the next stage.
