Rand Paul: Let's Compromise on Amnesty
Breitbart ^ | June 11, 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 06/12/2014 12:05:26 AM PDT by lilyramone

A day after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) lost his primary after Dave Brat hammered him on amnesty, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) embraced "immigration reform" on a conference call with Michael Bloomberg's pro-amnesty group and Grover Norquist.

Paul, a potential 2016 contender, reportedly said that "amnesty is a word that’s trapped us," and, according to CNN, emphasized, "If you want immigration reform, there has to be openness to compromise." Earlier on Wednesday, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh declared that when politicians in Washington say "immigration reform" what they really mean is "amnesty."

Regardless of how Paul describes it, he is pro-amnesty.

Yes, we need to compromise. We should allow them to apply for citizenship once they are deported.

I had high hopes for Rand, what a disappointment. What the heck happens to people when they go to DC? Is there something in the water that makes them forget who elected them and why? Compromise with the rats means one thing they win we lose.

On a happier note Rand his getting his buck kicked on the net and social media. But to me it will be to late to try and walk this back. He's gone soft on this issue one time to many.

Funny to say but he's not as savvy as his father and certainly not as principled.He doesn't hit on Libertarian cylinders nor Conservative. He's a flounder, not even a trout.

Rand Paul has been pushing the “Big Umbrella” for a while now.

He can officially be called Marco Rubio II now.

My take is that he’s putting far more weight in Linda’s primary victory than Brat’s.

he sees some in his party favoring a 2016 presidential candidate with an immigration policy that would ''round people up''

Over and over and a large list of issues, Rand doesn't just take a GOPe position, he also makes a point to attach a negative sound bite phrase to tag conservative's with.

Almost as though he is building quotes for the future.

Yup, you would think he’d learn. Newt was doing great against Romney until he stepped into it by going soft on illegal immigration. Perry was doing OK until his “you don’t have a heart comment” Rubio was a TP favorite until he joing the gang of 8. Cantor just lost a primary over illegal immigration. You’d think Paul would realize that enbracing amnesty is a deal breaker to conservatives. It is obvious to me that Paul is trying to make himself acceptable to the GOPe. I’m more interesting in someone willing to stand up for the America people then someone willing to bend over for the GOPe.

His arrogance in speaking down to us is infuriating. Who the heck does he think he is? I don’t need his lectures.

If I wanted someone to tell me what I should do and what I should say, I’ll vote for a Democrat.

The good news is that the new GOPe will be easy to unseat. They aren’t as entrenched as the old timers.

Aw, give Rand a break.

This transformation from an apparent conservative to an illogical foaming-at-the-mouth moonbat is encoded in the DNA he inherited from his daddy’s side.

And that libertarian religious cult stuff helped it along.

No, you must take an oath NOT vote FOR any Republican who gets the nomination unless its Sarah Palin or Tom Cruise, oppps I mean Ted Cruz.

Eventually things will get bad enough in the US after a few more Dem POTUSes that those two will get elected or a civil war will start, fixing everything.
Maybe Mark will get his convention then.
Its so simple.

This is fun! Reminds me of being a kid.

Rand is definitely acting like he will run for POTUS.
This is part of his ‘The GOP cant win the WH unless they...’ theme.
It will be interesting to see how it flies in the 2016 primary, if he actually takes it that far.

The biggest problem I see with immigration reform is that the GOP cant support a bill designed to pander to Hispanics and be consistent with the principles that they espouse, because those two will always conflict.

So they lie about the bill they support instead as the GWB people did, then Rubio did.

Similar with Chamber Commerce issues.
