The Rubio Con
Daily Caller, by Mickey Kaus

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 1/28/2013 8:29:23 AM

Sometimes a political con is just too transparent to fly: Remember the idea that Mitt Romney had defused the venerable Medicare issue in Florida because Obama had squeezed some money out of the program (money that Romney would inevitably have to squeeze himself)? Right. I suspect the con at the heart of what seems to be the immigration proposal from the Senate “Gang of 8“–seven veteran amnesty supporters plus Marco Rubio–will prove equally unworkable: According to a five-page document provided to POLITICO, the sweeping proposal — agreed to in principle by eight senators

Comments:
The GOP is dead to me. Rubio is the new Jeb Bush is the new McCain. If the establishment ruling elite in the GOP wants to pander to people who will never!!! vote for them, and throw my vote under the bus, then under the bus I plan on staying. I held my nose and voted for McCain. I didn´t need as big of a clothespin for Romney, but this is the last straw.

You´ll never convince me that McCain wanted to winin 2008. He wanted (wants) revenge on the Republican party, he wants it destroyed. Now Rubio?

Any time a left wing source has an article which designates a group as ´a gang´ it´s time to be suspicious. When does Politico ever refer to dems as a ´gang´?

There are some fights we can win and some fights that leave us bloodied and beaten on the sidelines, having accomplishing nothing. Deciding that the only way to cure/stop/remedy illegal immigration is to find them, gather them up and send them home is one of the fights we cannot win. That Marco Rubio is looking for a solution that attempts to fix some things, compromises on others and creates workable programs is to his credit. The accusation that we must not look for a way to reassure legal Hispanics with an immigration reform that works because they will "never vote for us" is a really good example of how we have lost the legal Hispanic vote. These good people are not our enemy.

I guess we don´t need 100 senators. All the country needs is a gang.

No more secret deals and 2,000 page bills that have to be passed before we know what´s in them. Debate the issues on the floors of Congress as was intended.

I hold our congress (going back decades--and that´s how long many of them have been there) accountable for the illegal alien invasion. They turned their collective backs on existing laws regarding such.

Vote all bums out, and start over with true conservative, non-career-seeking, electeds (I almost said politicians).

Republicans need to be more inclusive and find an immigration solution and a reason for Hispanics to join the party. If they can´t or won´t they´re history. Remember, the Hispanics will become the largest voting block in the not to distant future.

Let the illegals stay here as long as they want. Don´t give them drivers liscenses, health care, free education or any of the benefits of a citizen. Fine businesses that hire them and take away welfare and food stamps from people that refuse to work. Tell the mexican gov to suck eggs as they self deport.

#5 Conservatism is inclusive when it is articulated. The challenge is to find a real one with a desire to speak rather than look for a senatorial tenure retirement package.

AND as soon as someone erupts from the morass described as the inside the beltway crowd, the press and the forum participants can´t wait to tell all us ignorants that the current flavor is putrid in some minute way.

In the mean time gutless conservatives will contentedly commission liberals to define them without arguement.

Marco Rubio is a RINO as John McCain is a RINO as Lindsey Graham is a RINO, ETC. ETC.

Keep bringing along the lil RINOs. Such as Christie, whose RINOism prompted a poster here in the past couple of weeks to apologize to those of us who said all along that Christie is a RINO.

Live and learn, live and learn. But you won´t win over conservatives when you continue to prop up obvious RINOs and ask they be given "time" to dig in their heels for untold numbers of years in Washington.

Of course illegal aliens can be and should be deported. They should not be in this country at all! Most of them are disgusting and/or dangerous. President Eisenhower deported them. Other countries deport them. Look at Mexico´s dealing with illegal aliens.

I hope the House will stand up to this dangerous measure that will only destroy this country.

We should have "comprehensive" reform to make our immigration policy mirror the policy of the person´s home country.

If they come from Mexico, then they face Mexico´s harsh policy applied to them.

If they were born in Canada, then they face Canada´s more lenient policy.

Please note...the country they were born in, not the country they were traveling through just prior to settling here--or getting caught.

While living in Southern California I have personally known a first generation (his parents immigrated and still own land in Mexico) Mexican-American (my husband´s Best Man) and a third generation Mexican-American from Colorado. Both told of family travails working their way through the immigration system, and both felt that anyone not following every rule the way they/their parents did did not deserve to avoid deportation. One was a Republican, the other I´m not sure, but both were conservative business owners.

For Marco Rubio to live through and know what his parents endured on their "path to citizenship" and betray their hard work by pushing rewards for people who choose to thumb their noses to our entire system of laws makes him, in my book, unworthy of further office.


Any and every person who refuses to make the very important distinction between a legal immigrant and a criminal alien invader is either an idiot or a liar...take your choice.

Rubio has sold the GOP down the river and not a peep about this at Drudge or on Hannity or even on the Must Reads. Amnesty for 20 million illegal "immigrants" -- -- they´ve broken immigration laws, tax laws, customs law, labor laws, they´ve committed perjury in many cases and now they´re to be granted US Citizenship by decree thanks to our corrupt politicians and media. That´s absolutely revolutionary.

Sharyl Attkisson hasn’t landed yet, but there’s every reason to suppose she’s not going to finish her career in local news in Duluth. For starters, Atkinson is an accomplished reporter. But she’s also taken one of the surefire moves to help ensure her relevance – not to mention potential TV and book contracts – by criticizing the very media establishment in which she spent her career. It’s an increasingly well-traveled path: Over the course of the past two decades, a handful of journalists have left mainstream media jobs while decrying what they saw as an inherent bias in their own industry.

In between planning her wedding to John Molner and winding down her talk show, Katie Couric will give a commencement speech at American University’s School of Communications on May 10. Couric’s father, John, was a graduate and adjunct professor. “She’s a giant in her field, an experienced journalist, storyteller, well-connected to the issues and the concerns of today,” said communications dean Jeff Rutenbeck.The school’s current faculty includes George Clooney’s father, Nick Clooney — who has taught at the university since 2008.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

Even preschoolers are getting suspended from U.S. public schools -- and they´re disproportionately black, a trend that continues up through the later grades.Data to be released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm finds that black children represent about 18 percent of children enrolled in preschool programs in schools, but almost half of the students suspended more than once. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at least one preschool child.Advocates have long said that get-tough suspension and arrest policies in schools have contributed to a "school-to-prison" pipeline that snags minority students, but much of the

For decades, rapid economic growth has been the norm for developed countries. An educated workforce, a large population boom, major technological advances, and abundant fossil fuels were the key components of growth, generating substantial and broadly distributed increases in standards of living in many countries. We have grown so used to such growth that we inevitably view it as a panacea for a host of economic ills, whether it´s a deep recession or income inequality. We now understand, however, that the postwar growth paradigm is not environmentally sustainable. We also know that the shared prosperity it once delivered is itself

Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
