Skip to comments.Jeb Bush, Rubio Lay Low on Border Crisis
Posted on 07/18/2014 2:43:31 PM PDT by ek_hornbeck
Three Republicans with lofty aspirations nearly had their political careers derailed over risky positions on immigration.
But the crisis on the southern border involving an influx of nearly 60,000 migrant children this year from Central America may help Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Rick Perry repair a broken trust on immigration with conservatives.
All three are positioning themselves in a way that could help them make peace.
Perry, as governor of Texas, is out in front publicly since his state is directly affected, while Rubio, a Florida senator, and Bush, a former Florida governor, have been quiet

An astute observation. Look for the pro-Perry crowd try to marginalize its importance just as they have done with my tag line.
Rubio at least is not keeping quiet:
“Ultimately, we must overhaul this nation’s broken immigration system to prevent situations like this in the future,” his spokeswoman, Kristy Campbell, said.
“Broken immigration system?” It’s not broken it’s ignored!
“Overhauling” the law will not “prevent situations like this in the future” ENFORCING LAW WILL.
I’m sick to death of these lying Republican scum. They’re no better than Democrats. In fact they’re worse, they pretend to be what they are not.
Perry has been jacking his jaw for weeks. It’s obvious that state and federal agencies can not control the border, Perry has the power to use the State Guard yet he does not.
Joann Fleming and several others did a knockout job in exposing the PERRY-ABBOTT inaction team. This press conf. was Wed. Wild-eyed teen lib press GOT SCHOOLED THAT DAY
There’s nothing this troika of open borders, backstabbing weasels can do to “repair the damage.” They all need to go away.
Giving handouts in the form of taxpayer subsidized financial aid to ILLEGAL aliens cannot by any stretch of the imagination be considered fighting ILLEGAL immigration. Perry is part of the problem.
Imagine a scenario where local police refuse to investigate car thefts, and elected officials inform the public that laws against theft need to be rescinded in response to an epidemic of car thefts. That's exactly what we have here.
Im sick to death of these lying Republican scum. Theyre no better than Democrats. In fact theyre worse, they pretend to be what they are not.
That's why if the election comes down to Jeb vs. Hillary in 2016, I'm staying home or casting a protest write-in or third party vote if there's someone decent to write-in. What difference is it to me whether I get liberalism implemented by "R" or by "D"?
I agree. Unfortunately, they are all probably going to try and be the next Republican nominee, which is why we need to do all we can to prevent them from getting there.
“Grand theft auto” reform. Great analogy. I’ll be using it on my rabid Obot BiL.
Rubio and Jeb ruined their chance to be president by supporting amnesty because conservatives won’t vote for them. I don’t know about Perry.
If Perry would send our Guard to the border, people from all over the country would contribute to pay their salaries and keep them there. The people of TX are all for it and Perry knows it.
Aside from being politically astute, it is his duty to repel invasion!
They must be overcome with LOVE.
Jeb Bush and Rubio = cowards.
This inertia may yet defeat Abbott. If he makes it to victory, I would not expect the customary wide margins by which he won for attorney general. Of course, I am voting for Abbott no matter what but not for Cornyn.
RINO’s in the mist....
has Cornyn said anything about this at all??
Has Barbara yet given the required consent for Jebbie to run?
From the article:
Marco Rubio: As history has always shown and recent events have reaffirmed authoritarian governments are never satisfied with dominating only their own people; they seek the weakening and outright conquest of their neighbors, along with growing influence in every corner of the planet. Russias renewed interest in our own neighborhood as well as Chinas increasing activity show this to be the case.Funny how many people will ignore the similarities between Russia's multi-generational invasion, occupation and subversion of Ukraine, and the Mexican/Central/South America multi-generational invasions, occupation and subversion of the USA.
They've been saying 11 million for years.
Kind of like when the national debt stopped going up when the debt ceiling was at issue.
Two craven traitors.
Jeb Bush and Rubio = traitors
“But the crisis on the southern border involving an influx of nearly 60,000 migrant children this year from Central America may help Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Rick Perry repair a broken trust on immigration with conservatives. “
The three of them outed themselves as amnesty loving fans of the Treason Lobby.
And now that the whole country is getting to see what their plans would give us they are sitting on the sidelines saying “Who, me?”. Screw them all.
The chick that wrote this article must think conservatives have a short memory and are very stupid.
“Im sick to death of these lying Republican scum. Theyre no better than Democrats. In fact theyre worse, they pretend to be what they are not.”
That has a ring to it. The ring of truth.
Will try to get individual video...they were posted directly to FB. Are you on FB?
