Skip to comments.Rubio insists he isn't being played by Schumer
Posted on 06/16/2013 5:33:44 PM PDT by Zhang Fei
Sen. Marco Rubio was dismissive Sunday of some conservatives' concerns that Democrats are taking advantage of him to help pass an immigration bill.
"Immigration reform is something that all Americans recognize has to be done," the Florida Republican said on ABC's "This Week," after being pressed on whether Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is "playing him," as commentator Ann Coulter has claimed.
"I don't focus a lot on public polling, but if you look at these public polls, it's clear the vast majority of Americans understand that what we have in place in this country is de facto amnesty, a broken legal immigration system that needs to be reformed," he said.
That came after Rubio had already offered an even more dismissive answer to host Jon Karl, who asked "Are you being played by the Democrats? Is Chuck Schumer playing you, is essentially the charge?"
Rubio's answer: "I don't -- I quite frankly, I don't even know what that means."
Rubio was also insistent that while some conservatives are opposed to the immigration bill, he agrees with them on "virtually every other issue."

He's not being played. He's playing GOP voters. The RINO's are saying that GOP voters can't get 'em all. The way to counter that was illustrated a while back in the movie "Stand by Me", where the protagonist, Gordie, who was armed with a gun, was surrounded by a large group of bullies, just as GOP voters are being swarmed with RINO office holders:
Personally I suspect that if this border erasure act fails, we’ll see a flood of dirty leaks on a lot of people and frankly I don’t care.
Let em go down under their own dirt.
‘Schumer is the most despicable member of Congress.’
Sure-fire way to tell if Chuckie is lying to you.
Did his lips move?
He isn’t. He is being played by Juan. McCain and his pet fruitcake Graham
he’s not being played, he is in on it with the democrats.
Rubio decided to join up with the LA RAZA side! SHAMEFUL and TRAITOROUS!
Isn't that sort of like your husband telling you he agrees with you on virtually every issue except that one minor issue of fidelity?
Well, maybe NSA has something on him.......or he lied to get elected.
Either way his career is dead.
Yea right......that's a good one!
Only if he stays in the GOP. With amnesty, he'll get hordes of new Hispanic voters in FL. All he has to do to stay politically viable is adopt the Dem platform wholesale and switch parties. We have a long hard road ahead of us. He's figured out all the angles.
These scumbag politicians are in the process of taking America down, big time.
If it's broke, we don't want Schumer or any other Demonicrat clown anywhere near it and now we don't want you doin anything to fix it either!!!
Are we gonna hafta git you one of them glass bellybuttons to see through???
I was worried about the press “Palinizing” Rubio.
I never dreamed he would place a noose around his own neck.
Being from NY Schumer is captain obvious and has never found a camera he didn’t like. Honest as a fox!
We conservatives are the ones being played... BY Rubio and the Dems
I saw him on Univision’s news show the other night and could tell by the titles they were talking about “imigracion” but I couldn’t interpret that speedy spanish lingo!!!
Either Rubio is stupid or being bought...either way I will never vote for or send him or the rino’s another dime of my of my hard earned money the hnic has decided to let me keep.
Marco the RUBE is a LOST CAUSE and cannot be trusted.
Why is it better to be a LEGAL rather than an ILLEGAL immigrant?
If illegal immigrants can use American social services, send their children to American schools, and take American jobs without having to register with the IRS and have their earnings taxed, why wouldn’t they want to remain that way?
Illegals can’t vote, but why would they want to? And why would Mexicans want to give up their Mexican citizenship to become Americans if they don’t have to in order to enjoy the benefits of being an American anyway as they do now?
What will happen if most illegals don’t show up to claim the ‘’benefits’’ of amnesty and become American citizens, but instead choose to remain in the shadows? How will Chuck Schumer and the Democrats get the flood of new Hispanic votes they’ve been dreaming of? Stay tuned.
Rubio says the Dems better give in on enforcement or they will get no bill. Man this guy is tough.
(But to make Dems happy he is working with them on a watered down Cornyn amendment because they rejected the original, but pay no attention to what he does)
But the line (or lie??) that got my attention was at the end when Rubio said :
“ ...and then President Obama has to decide if he will sign it.”
Yep, this bill is going to be sooo conservative and such a bitter pill for Obama to swallow that he may need a few drinks before he will be able to sign it, if he can.
Yep, Rubio has got Dems eating out of his hand. They don't know what hit them with Rubio. They are terrified of him. Watch Rubio play them...the GOP we always dreamed of.
Hail Marco, 2016, ....
Don’t worry. He never will be if he is on our team. He might win the primary but the rats will sink his ship before the general so their guy wins.
Nothing stops HS from saying the boarder is secured. I think they have already announced that it is in fact secured.
I must admit that he had me and a room full of people fooled early in his Senate campaign. No longer!!! If I have to run against him myself, he will no longer represent the State of Florida!!!!
Rubio makes the case for ALL governmental business, campaigns, speeches, etc, being in English.
Racist swine like Rubio should not be allowed to say one thing in English and the opposite in spanish. It is divisive. It is insulting. It is dangerous.
He should be reprimanded.
So the solution is to just open the floodgates and let all the foreigners in the world just come on in and party? What the hell are you people smoking up there on Capitol Hump?
You’re starting to scare me.
Rubio lies and you seem to support him.
Something is truly wicked about this. It's as though their re-elections &/or retirements are completely fixed and funded. Greed of $$/power over country. Sickening.
So sorry...I misread one of your posts and am so angry at Rubio, I wasn’t reading or thinking straight.
Rubio is full of sh**. Has anybody here ever heard anybody besides the scumbag politicians even mention immigration reform? Freinds, neighbors, family members? Where is this even on the radar? The only thing I ever hear, if anything, is, "Get the illegal aliens out of here and secure the border."
Yeah, Rubio is full of sh**.
Wow. What a lying piece of scum that guy turned out to be.
rubio is a major anti-America loser...what duplicitous creep. What did the NSA find on him?
Schumer is a socialist/communist/marxist. Not to be trusted under any circumstances..socialists/marxists/communists lie as a matter of policy...this man is an enemy of the people and must be outed for what he is...Mark Levin is very good at putting Shmucky Schumer (as Mark so lovingly refers to him) in his place...give a listen to Mark Levin’s talk radio show sometime, and gain an insight into leftist Schumer and others like him in politics.
Don't sweat it. Rubio has disappointed so many people who thought he was the real deal, and wasted both the time volunteered and money donated to this mole's* campaign. One commenter at the link put it best:
Rubio was also insistent that while some conservatives are opposed to the immigration bill, he agrees with them on "virtually every other issue."* Rubio isn't even a traitor - he's a mole, plain and simple.
Yes, but this is the nonnegotiable issue. This is the issue that matters. This is where you've decided to literally wage war on your own voters. Amnesty is the nonnegotiable because it is permanent. Almost all other issues can be changed back.
The GOP faithful will eventually have to come to terms with the fact that Rubio isn't even a traitor - he's a mole, a Trojan horse inserted into the GOP to wreck the conservative movement.
The REAL problem is a bunch of primitive savages have invaded our country and are sucking at the public teat 24/7.....they are a Fifth Column---pressure groups, loyal only to opportunistic Third World hellholes......"lying in wait."
Illegal votes will be exchanged for zillions in foreign aid.
OMINOUS SILENCE Conspiculously silent is the tax-funded Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Voto Latino, the numerous tax- funded Hispanic Federations, the tax-funded blood thirsty La Raza, as well as countless "latino legal rights" groups.
"Citizenship" is the latino word for "pressure group." Citizenship and welfare benefits are a small part of amnesty---get ready for zillions in foreign aid and other federal handouts.
LYING IN WAIT FOR OUR TAX DOLLARS--- THESE IMPOVERISHED COUNTRIES CURRENTLY HAVE ORGANIZED PRESSURE GROUPS INSIDE THE US (here illegally): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside)l Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.
AS ONE EXAMPLE: Dominican Republic travel brochures reveal the Third World hellhole provides no safety nets for its impoverished populations. The DR depends on the billion dollars per year their illegal population collect in the US and send back home.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC STRANGLEHOLD ON US POLITICS--- It is an unconscionable travesty against representative democracy---to have the corrupt Dominican Republic meddling in our affairs---cooking the books to help Sen Booby Menendez (D-NJ) stay in power. Menendez is on-record using US govt authority to grease the skids for a billion dollar Dominican port- deal (that can facilitate drug cargo to the US).
Menendez also hired an illegal latino who was a registered sex offender to work in his DC office.
HOW DO YOU SAY QUID PRO QUO IN SPANISH? Clearly, a deal was made. IF (BIG IF) the Dominican Republic saves Menendez's degenerate a** (and prevents the dreaded Christie appointment), Obama will write the foreign aid check w/ plenty of zeros.
BOTTOM LINE Menendez has TWO governments protecting him---- Americans have not even one government looking after our interests.
The way that argument goes is that 'this is OUR last chance to fix it by getting a (this) bi-partision deal', so they repeat that over and over, broken...
He’s NOT being played. I hope people quit giving Rubio cover by saying he is, since he just denied it.
He’s not being played, he’s showing his true colors.
“Rubio is a fool to believe ANYTHING Sen. Schumer says. Its all lies and anyone with any sense can see that.”
Rubio is NOT being “played.” He is showing his true colors.
Face up to it.
Correct - Rubio is the Hispanic version of Obama - all lies, spin, scams, and cliché riddled empty bs
This isn't going to hurt. (It's gonna hurt)
You can trust me. ( you can't - honest people don't need to reassure you)
It's not the money... (it's the money)
These aren't the droids you're looking for (yes, they are)
I'm not being played by Schumer ... (he's being played by Schumer)
“his arm candy wife”
She’s not that hot. Probably third owner used or looks that way. She may seen nice but probably another Victoria Osteen.
MEMO TO NSA: Good morning all you diligent i-net watchers. When you compile the communiques of vote-crazed Rubio, Ohaha, Schumer, and the rest of the "reformers" making inside deals with corrupt Third World federales in exchange for aye votes, please copy the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Thank you.
Rubio is a Benedict Arnold and needs to be replaced at the next Florida primary.
Its time to write/fax/email/call our US Senators and Congressmen again - they are making another pull for amnesty & open borders!
Tell them to vote NO! on the immigration bill and that listed below is what we need to do ASAP to protect America and preserve her freedom from illegal aliens/criminals:
1) Secure our borders
2) Enforce existing law
3) Not allow any amnesty provisions of any kind
4) Improve our visa system
5) Prosecute and fine those businesses which knowingly employ illegal workers
6) Give law enforcement officials the necessary resources and authority to combat illegal immigration
7) Deport illegal aliens violating the law after being fingerprinted, photographed, charged with a felony, and placing their information in a national database.
8) Send a bill for deportation/prison costs to the embassy of the illegal immigrants national origin.
9) 2nd time and thereafter repeat offenses by illegal aliens should be sent to work prison camps for a maximum of 6 months.
10) Seize and liquidate all assets from illegal aliens and use the proceeds for our military and local law enforcement.
11) Must not give illegal immigrants government welfare benefits of any kind, including Social Security
12) Designate English as our national language
13) Change the 14th Amendment regarding birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants
14) Put pressure on the Mexican government and other nations to reduce illegal immigration to America.
15) Encourage only legal immigration and citizenship to for those wanting to become Americans.
These ENFORCED changes would strengthen America greatly.
arm candy wife
She was hot back in her cheerleading days.
if he believes anything Schumer or Reid says or if he thinks getting along with the white house POS is good for his future, he is too dumb to be considered for higher office. Frankly, he is too smart to believe any of the above because he is in sync with what they want to do. He is giving cover to Juan McCain and light in the loafers Graham to push this through. Anyone with two synapses that fire at the same time knows any amnesty bill is the worse thing, especially after Obamacare, that could happen in the US. We, the Patriots here, are doomed to a life of misery.
Hey, just a crazy conspiracy theory to explain Marco and Schumer swapping spit. Don't pay any attention to the man behind the keyboard...
And once amnesty and obamacare are up and operating, a very short life at that. my advice would be: Make peace with your Maker. 2. Prepare to meet Him. Because you are going to. It will either be on your knees begging your masters or on your feet as a free man or woman.
