Skip to comments.We've Been Played on Immigration

RUSH: We go to immigration. In a remarkable turn of events, all eight Gang of Eight members voted to table the Grassley amendment, to have control of the border for six months before the amnesty kicks in. And, by the way, don't call it amnesty. It isn't amnesty. That's the latest claim from the powers that be. The Grassley amendment to the Gang of Eight bill simply said we would gain control of the border for six months before any other aspect of the bill -- which is exactly what we were told was supported from the get-go. That's exactly what we were told the condition was: Border security first, or nothing. Now of course that's out the window. So is the Grassley amendment out the window with control of the border for six months.
And again, this despite the sponsors having -- I don't know. I thought I was promised. I thought we were all promised that enforcement would be the key here. I also thought there would be an open amendment process. There's polling data that shows the American people want enforcement first by a 4-to-1 margin. But none of this makes any sense. Try as I have, I can't understand how it makes any sense. I don't understand how the Republicans do not understand what they're doing to themselves with this. I do not understand how it is they do not see what's happening. I don't understand how they don't get what the Democrats are doing, how the Democrats are playing them. I don't get it.
We've talked about this. The Hispanic vote was not even 8% of the electorate. There was a poll out -- I mentioned this to you some weeks ago -- if Romney had got 70% of the Hispanic vote -- and no Republican ever has the -- he still would not have won. The Republicans got 37% of the Hispanic vote back in 1984. Then in 1986, they did amnesty. Then they got 30%. They lost 7% of the Hispanic vote after amnesty in 1988 election when George H. W. Bush ran. The polling data is clear: 70% of the Hispanic voters are gonna vote Democrat no matter what. You bring 11 to 12 million new people out of the shadows, and they're -- I don't know what I'm missing. On the surface, what it appears is -- and I can't believe this. It appears that the Republicans really do fear what the Democrats tell them, that the Hispanics hate you, the Hispanics don't like you, the Hispanics are never gonna vote for you unless you change your opinion on immigration.
I try to put myself in the position of being a Republican in the House or the Senate. I can't for the life of me understand it. I don't understand how they don't see what this is going to do to their party. For the life of me, I don't understand it. Nobody has been able to make me understand what I'm missing. What is the secret that we don't get? What's the secret that we're missing, that they know, that we don't know? Because, on the surface, this doesn't appear to make any sense.
Most believe what they hear on CNN. After all, the government COULDN’T be that bad, could it? That’s for the tin foil hat crowd and the conspiracy theorists.
Most young people really don’t believe the bad thing will happen to THEM - someone else, maybe, but not THEM.
Well Rush call up your good true conservative friend Rubio and tell him you are unhappy with his scam.
I thought that Rubio would turn out to be a fraud. Kept my thoughts to myself, but in that interview on Rush’s show, I didn’t like some of what I heard, and more importantly, the tone Rubio used in his explanation. My wife, who is unusually prescient about these things, said she heard deceit in Rubio’s voice in that interview.
She was right.
Someone tell me again why it’s so important for the Republicans to retain control of the House in 2014 and re-take the Senate.
Oh—By the way—Has Rush unglued his lips from Rubio’s backside yet?
” Well Rush call up your good true conservative friend Rubio and tell him you are unhappy with his scam.”
LOL...and Rush could have stopped those Rubio ads on his show
but some low IQ joker here tried to convince me he couldn’t : )
It makes perfect sense if the people we have elected are not the true people in power.
Someone else is pulling the string of power in the world.
All I can figure is:
3) sleeper Democrats
4) idiots just wanting to be loved
I suspect the average Congresscritter/senator has some combination of a multiple of these factors in play.
No, if he had those ads pulled then he would make less $$$ and he cant turn down that $$$, it would hurt too much.
Some ‘low IQ joker’ tried to argue that Rush is ‘principled’ (ie conservative). I replied that to Rush a buck in his hand is 'a principle', that is his primary principle and he has lots and wants lots more 'principles' .
just like those Chamb of Comm whores who cut the amnesty deal with the unions.
” No, if he had those ads pulled then he would make less $$$ and he cant turn down that $$$, it would hurt too much.”
Yeah...Rush would go from 52 million a year to 51,600,000 : )
” just like those Chamb of Comm whores who cut the amnesty deal with the unions. “
I know they bought Flake, and McCain. Probably Ryan, and several others.
Is Limbaugh really that stupid? If the Dems had allowed the Grassley amendment to pass it would have been to get votes they needed from the GOP (so they, no doubt, don't need any more votes), and then if the law had passed with that amendment Nappy would have simply ignored it.
Too late. No more chances for the snake Rubio.
But his work is already done. Short of a massive national intervention, this country will be committing suicide via amnesty later this year.
” Is Limbaugh really that stupid? “
Or indifferent, yes.
” Short of a massive national intervention, this country will be committing suicide via amnesty later this year.”
And it IS suicide!
Exactly right, Jim - most of us here saw through this from the start.
Don’t forget to follow the money, as it may apply to Rush. There are a lot of Big $$ supporters of cheap immigrant labor which will transfer trillions of (wage) dollars from the poorest to the wealthiest with the additional demolition of the rebellious middle class. That is a 2 fer for the elites, unlimited $$’s and power.

The banks will also reap trillions loaning money to these slobs at 20-29% interest.
Yes we did.
The illegals will also soak up the banks 5-10 million unit inventory of vacant housing using liar loans as they did before 2008.
I remembering listening to the Rush show when he had Rubio on. He challenged Rubio quite well. After Rubio was off the show, Rush commented that Rubio had no answers for the questions and issues that he raised.
Rush did his job quite well.
