Nice to know that I’m not alone. I’ve always liked Rubio, but the immigration thing bothered me. One because while current policy needs adjustment, and enforcement should be serious, “comprehensive” opens up legislative cans of worms.
What bothered me most was that Rubio helped get the immigration push started, but then lost all control to Schumer and crew. Not sure that he had any part of control to start with, either.
Over time, I’ve chalked it up to learning experience. The House and Senate are tough to learn, and no one understands in the first year or two. No great conspiracy, just complications of normal (good or bad) politics. I’ve come to think he’s quite smart, has the right philosophies, and will do well for us.
