Double talking Marco Rubio: The amnesty changeling

When Florida Sen. Marco Rubio signed on with John McCain’s Gang of Eight amnesty-pushing leftists and RINOs, he was merely reverting back to his original position before he expediently changed it, and then conveniently altered it again. The perpetual motion must be dizzying.

Fellow gangsters John McCain and Jeff Flake, each took that useful route as elections neared. Their duplicity on a range of issues earned them this bottom-dragging rating.

John Hawkins’ definitive column “The ugly truth about Marco Rubio and his Gang-of-Eight amnesty bill,” in the Dec. 2015 issue of Townhall provides in-depth insight to slick talking Marco Rubio — who produces waffles better than Eggo on this fundamental issue that undergirds the votes of many Americans.

When Republican Rubio ran for the U.S. Senate against former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and U. S. Rep. Kendrick Meek in 2010, he was singing this hard-line tune that helped win the election for him:

“I am strongly against amnesty. The most important thing we need to do is enforce our existing laws. We have existing immigration laws that are not being adequately enforced. Nothing will make it harder to enforce the existing laws, if you reward people who broke them. It demoralizes people who are going through the legal process; it’s a very clear signal of why go through the legal process, if you can accomplish the same thing if you go through the illegal process. And number two, it demoralizes the people enforcing the laws. I am not, and I will never support any effort to grant blanket legalization/amnesty to folks who have entered, stayed in this country illegally.”

Juxtapose those unequivocal words against presidential candidate Marco Rubio during his Sunday appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with host Chuck Todd. His facile wordplay and glib reversals plainly demonstrate his appeal to John McCain whose own mastery of deceit is a hallmark of his decades in the U.S. Senate. That’s why he was voted back into political oblivion by elected members of his own party on Saturday.

Marco Rubio, unable to differentiate between actual legal immigrants and law breaking illegals, now takes the position that “law-abiding ‘undocumented immigrants’ can stay in America.”

    Never able to rise above 1 percent in the presidential polls, McCain ally and ex-candidate Lindsey Graham has now endorsed amnesty supporter Jeb! Bush who referred to illegal entry into the US as “an act of love.” That’s quite a coup for Jebbie.

    I’ve read that Lindsey Grahamnesty is trying to bring his fellow loser John McCain onboard Bush’s doomed train. My bet is Rubio will be saddled with albatross McCain unless he specifically tells him “thanks, but no thanks.”

    Good points . . . yet what to do about millions of illegals here is not settled among conservatives who want workable solutions.

    I’ve been to Kelli Ward’s web site . . . she will not be charged with changing her view on this because, alas, she does not state one!

    She wants to secure the borders, which is without controversy with all conservatives.

      Dr. Kelli Ward’s immigration position is here:

      So what are you specifically looking for …the time schedule for when the trucks will be arriving at the residences of illegals to haul them away? What if the American born kids are doing their homework after school and madre and padre are not there? What if the person opening the door is armed and decides to defend his family against unknown people entering their residence? Do you envision blood flowing in the streets in what I assume is your roundup plan?

      I strongly oppose the illegal invasion, but think the border needs to be sealed against further invaders and no amnesty ever given to those who are already here. I will never support Marco Rubio and I voted for the anti-McCain resolution at Saturday’s MCRC meeting. I haven’t voted for John McCain for senator in many years and did not and will never support Jeff Flake.

    It was fun to hear the 9:00 news this morning on KFNX 1100 broadcast that the “Anyone But McCain” resolution passed at the meeting this weekend. Word is getting out. As it should!

    • MacBeth says:

      The AZ Repulsive carried the news in the Sunday edition. It must have been a stab to the heart of McCain’s assigned reporter Dan Nowicki to have to write about it. When McCain is out, Nowicki will probably be assigned to covering book reviews, specializing in fiction.

  4. Kimball says:

    Let’s face it. Marco Rubio has learned well from his amnesty mentors Jeb Bush and John McCain. All three are in a dead heat for the Liar of the Decade Award.

  5. Kimball says:

    Forgot to add Jeff Flake in that same mix. Flake even laughingly acknowledged that he lied about term limiting himself when he was in the US House.

  6. Saguaro Sam says:

    Marco Rubio, like so many other politicians who have hopped aboard the McCain train, appears to be without a soul.

    Just look at his eyes. They are blank.

    Rubio will do McCain’s bidding, even if by some great stroke of luck McCain would lose his Senate seat.

    Like Obama, McCain will never ever go away.
    Not even post mortem. Too many others eager to step into those tasseled, highly polished loafers.

    If you listen closely to Rubio, you will hear him change his words according to whomever is in the crowd. During the debate he said he opposed any form of citizenship but then in the next breath he was okay with green cards. He slides these in and out according to what the opposition asked him. He is another wordsmith like McCain and the other RINOS.
