Skip to comments.Mark Levin, thank you for what you're doing, but it's time to call out Marco Rubio

I deeply appreciate that day in and day out Mark Levin takes on the Republican establishment. I'm encouraged that he has called out Paul Ryan and others for their disingenuous support of this 1000+ page immigration bill.
It is far past time he call out Marco Rubio, who it he face of this bill. I think if he is going to be sincere on this issue, he needs to highlight the main reason this bill has a chance of becoming law, and that reason is Marco Rubio.
I agree with you 100%. Levin is a great thinker and a clever strategist. I don’t understand why he doesn’t call out Rubio. It makes me question everything else he says.
I think he did this last night. Or was it Michael Berry?
I think he said a few installments ago that he didn’t like to trash people. I was scratching my head. Boehner, Rove, Weiner Nation?
I gave Rubio the benefit of the doubt for a long time, but the recent Spanish/English exposure is clear indication that Rubio has been absorbed by the beltway borg. Levin should call him out.
Mark Levin said he cannot support this bill after looking at it even though he had Rubio on his show explaining it many weeks ago.
But, but, but.... Rubio says we must bring them out of the shadows.... So they can vote for democrats.
Seal the borders and imprison any and all who knowingly hire illegals. E-verify and put teeth to the law. The illegal immigration problem would be solved in ten years.
He thinks Rubio might be the 2016 nominee and he wants to support him if he is(or if he likes the others less).
“Rubio is a great guy and my good friend and he has NOTHING but the right intentions but he is being snookered by those crafty Dems. They are downright diabolical and must have drugged or hypnotized him or kidnapped his daughter. Don't hate Marco for his actions as he is not responsible for them now. Hate the Dems more and vote ALL GOP for revenge for bamboozling our good friend Marco . Your life depends on it”
I can listen to about 5 to 10 minutes of this dribble before I must tune to another station.
If the Republicans pass the flawed immigration bill against the will of the people, it is time for a third party. Passage assures destruction of the Republican Party and we conservatives clearly need a place to go for 2014.
Time and again we see that the Republican Party cannot be modified from within.
Sad to say, Rubio is a Latino first and an American second. His advisers destroyed him.
Pray for America to Wake Up
I’m with you and I really like Mark a lot ...but, I really question him putting his friendship or whatever it is with Rubio above the good of the country .....he needs to go after him full force
Rush was dancing around it today, just neither of them can come out and say anything bad about Rubio...and he’s the damn face of this disaster and the only reason it’s going to become law
and just be prepared for a crapstorm for criticizing Levin....
This amnesty abomination is worse than 0Care and Rube's participation and support of it is indefensible.
Congresswoman Bachmann, and a few others, have been screaming from the rooftops to not let this horrid bill pass...it will be the demise of the GOP and the country, as we know it. Rube is very wrong on this one.
What have Malkin and Ingrahm done recently?
Hmmm...interesting parmeters, you have established. Are you looking for militia folks?
When Rubio first joined the gang of 8 and started talking up the immigration bill, I thought he might just be naive.
Since then, I have read that he was pushing similar while in the state House and as speaker of the state House.
He wasn’t naive about the gang of 8. He knew exactly what they were about.
He hoodwinked many.
Just like Rand Paul is doing and Paul Ryan is doing.
At this stage, the only hope may be what transpired in the US House meeting the 70 conservatives had with Boehner today. Apparently, however, they didn’t accomplish much because there were no headlines after the meeting.
“Im done with all the Conservative talking heads: Levin Rush, Coulter, Malkin, Ingrahm, Hannity, etc. They are all hacks for the GOP. They are are all wealthy so economic crash doesnt hurt them.”
...generally I agree with you, except for Mark Levin...he really does go after the establishment, unlike his buddies Hannity and Limbaugh....but his refusal to take Marco Rubio on in this issue is really hurting the chances of defeating this bill.
Levin and all the rest are TALK SHOW HOSTS. Entertainers on the friggin’ radio. Surely you don’t look to them to formulate public policy do you? He has a big audience - of conservatives. So how is that going to matter to Rubio or any other Senator? They all know how the game is played and what has to be done to get a bill passed. Every law - every single one of them - is a crap sandwich in someone’s eyes...
It doesn’t matter what Levin says about Rubio. Low information types don’t know Rubio and don’t care about immigration and they damn sure don’t listen to Mark Levin. But their vote has just as impact as yours or mine. This issue will be decided by 100 people in the US Senate, and Mark Levin ain’t one of ‘em.
I’m sorry but you are wrong....talk radio and the grassroots were the primary reasons the Bush amnesty was defeated in 2007.
Levin is a Johnny-come-lately to the reality that Paul Ryan is a con man.
Where was Levin in early 2011 when Ryan was pitching his 10 year doll house fake budget resolution ? You know the one that reforms medicare starting 10 years after passage? 'We have to pass it to see whats in it 10 years later'.
Back then Levin was contributing to making Ryan a conservative cult hero, and the dumb mice followed the cheese off the cliff again.
