I guess you can say Marco McCain aka Marco Rubio has ‘evolved’ on the issue of amnesty. Just 3 and a half years ago while running for the Senate Marco Rubio has gone from saying that granting amnesty will basically destroy the legal immigration system to lets pass amnesty now and deal with border security now. It’s like Obama on gay marriage. Until the money started pouring in from the pro-amnesty lobbyists, Rubio just ‘evolved’ on an issue.

‘In 1986, Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to 3 million people. You know what happened… There were people trying to enter the country legally, who had done the paperwork, who were here legally, who were going through the process, who claimed, all of a sudden, ‘No, no, no, no. I’m illegal.’ Because it was easier to do the amnesty programme than it was to do the legal process.’
- Candidate Marco Rubio, 29 November 2009
‘If you grant amnesty, the message that you’re sending is that if you come in this country and stay here long enough, we will let you stay. And no one will ever come through the legal process if you do that.’
- Candidate Marco Rubio, 29 November 2009
‘He would have voted for the McCain plan. I think that plan is wrong, and the reason I think it’s wrong is that if you grant amnesty, as the governor proposes that we do, in any form, whether it’s back of the line or so forth, you will destroy any chance we will ever have of having a legal immigration system that works here in America.’
- Candidate Marco Rubio, 28 March 2010
‘Earned path to citizenship is basically code for amnesty.’
- Candidate Marco Rubio, 24 October 2010
‘We have to be the pro-legal immigration party. We have to be a party that advocates for a legal immigration system that’s good for Americans, good for America and honours our tradition both as a nation of immigrants and as a nation of law.’
- Senator Marco Rubio, 5 October 2011
‘But, at the same time, on the left there are those that are using this issue for pure politics creating unrealistic and unreasonable expectations among those in the Latino community across this country.
Figure out a way to accommodate them in a way that does not encourage illegal immigration in the future.’
- Senator Marco Rubio, 27 January 2012
‘We have to deal with the people that are here now in a way that’s responsible but humane, and this does that. This allows people the access to make their status at this moment legal.’
- Senator Marco Rubio, 28 January 2013
Marco Rubio, who’s staff thinks American workers ‘can’t cut it’ along with Juan McCain helped kill a border-fence amendment to the Senate amnesty bill today. Either Marco Rubio should change his name to Marco McCain or just change parties like ambulance chaser Charlie Crist. I had such high hopes for Marco McCain. What a disappointment. Rubio, McCain and other amnesty pimpers rejected an amendment that of a 700 miles of double-tier border fencing that Congress already authorized seven years ago. So basically this proves yet again, any promise to ‘secure the border’ in exchange for amnesty is nothing but a load of crap.
According to Jeb Bush, any conservatives or tea party members who is against him and his amnesty policies are now called ‘The Chirpers’ or something. At least left wing nut balls are consistent in calling people like us ‘teabaggers.’ Karl Rove Republicans like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Jeb Bush can’t seem to settle on a name. One day it’s hobbits, another day it’s wacko birds, and now it’s ‘The Chirpers.’ The GOP is truly the stupid party.
|Watch: Jeb Bush calls conservative ‘The Chirpers’|
An unnamed aide for Marco Rubio apparently doesn’t think American workers can cut it, and what’s why we need amnesty.
Politico’s Playbook has an excerpt from a new Ryan Lizza piece from the New Yorker that is not yet online. It contains a passage on the back-and-forth between labor and the Chamber that has a quote from a Rubio staffer that is going to raise eyebrows, to say the least:
“There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can’t cut it. There shouldn’t be a presumption that every American worker is a star performer. There are people who just can’t get it, can’t do it, don’t want to do it. And so you can’t obviously discuss that publicly.”
Republican Peter King doesn’t only want to throw Eric Snowden in jail, but journalists like Glenn Greenwald of the UK Guardian in jail too for daring to reveal the Obama NSA spying program. I used to like Peter King, but I have finally come to realize he’s nothing more than a New York version of John McCain. According to Peter King, the First Amendment of the Constitution isn’t ‘absolute.’ Funny how these neocons like Peter King weren’t as outraged when Obama leaked favorable information to the press to make himself look good. Peter King doesn’t seem to be outraged at the IRS targeting of conservatives, or Eric Holder targeting of AP reporters or James Rosen either (Who did nothing.) Peter King needs to go back to doing what he does best, hold his Muslim hearings. Glenn Greenwald responded to Peter King’s remarks on Fox News:
Only In America can a renowned and devoted terrorism supporter like Peter King be the arbiter of national security and treason.

If these Neocons like Peter King are going to fawn outrage over the American people daring to know they are being spied on, he should at least be consistent. These Karl Rove Republicans are going to turn me into a Ron Paul fan one of these days.
Lindsey Graham is on a roll as the flaming RINO from South Carolina. Yesterday he declared yesterday that he wanted to follow Mr. Snowden to ends of earth bring him to justice. Today he’s saying that he would be willing to censor private mail ‘if it were necessary.’
MT @daveweigel Lindsey Graham: “If I thought censoring the mail was necessary I’d support it.”

Remember Ann Barnhardt from 2011? She said it perfectly abut Lindsey Graham

Tub of lard Chris Christie does it again. Instead of appointing a Republican to fill Frank Lautenberg’s vacated Senate seat through Novemeber of next year, fat boy is calling for an early special election in October instead. I suppose that might be better than who Christie would have likley appointed to Lautenberg’s seat. If he would have picked a Republican (which I doubt) he likely would have selected Geraldo Rivera. I figured he’d likely just appoint Cory Booker anyway, who will probably end up winning the special election. Yet again, fat bastard screws over the country and tries to show an attitude. It’s time for lard ass Christie to just switch parties already and be done with it. The governor election for New Jersey is on November 5th, 2013. Really smart idea to waste money on an extra election just a couple weeks before the general governor election.
The best solulation for New Jersey would have been to appooint a replacement, and let them hold the seat until next year’s November election. Instead, Christie does what’s better for him politically and pulls this little game.
Bob Dole is a washed up, bitter RINO who was an epic failure as a presidential candidate in 1996. Dole was such a pathetic candidate in ’96 I actually voted for BJ Clinton instead of Dole. That’s how bad hew as. Since then John McCain and Mitt Romney have tried to emulate the Bob Dole campaign and have all ended up with the same result. Fox News of course loves RINOs and gave Dole an interview on Fox News Sunday for some reason. Earlier they had another flaming RINO Lindsey Graham on, and frequently feature John McCain. Bob Dole whined about the current GOP party and how they wouldn’t accept Ronald Reagan (the typical liberal lie) or even Richard Nixon. He’s right. Conservatives wouldn’t accept another Richard Nixon. Why bother? The Democrats already have their own version of Richard Nixon in office.

When you talk about cowards, you can look at Jason Mattera chasing down Al Franken and Chuck Schumer as they run from questions about them asking the IRS to target tea party groups. On the Republican side, you just have to look at ‘leadership’ in the House with Weeper of the House John Boehner. Weeper Boehner and GOP leadership in the House still refuse to establish special Benghazi committee.
The story about the IRS cracking down on the tea party isn’t exactly brand new, as the media and the GOP wants you to believe. Left wing biased Politico actually had a big article about Democrats demanding the IRS ‘crack down’ on the Tea Party as far back as March of 2012. The media of course didn’t report on this. Probably more disturbing, is the worthless GOP sat on their hands and let Democrats get away with political intimidation through the IRS. The GOP hacks like Karl Rove hates the tea party almost, if not more than Democrats and the media. From the Politico article in March of 2012:
— Greg Howard (@GregWHoward) May 17, 2013
Seven Democratic senators on Monday urged the IRS to crack down on groups that organize as nonprofits only to engage in politics — an effort targeted at conservative groups they believe are abusing the law.
“We urge the IRS to … prevent abuse of the tax code by political groups focused on federal election activities,” the senators wrote to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, promising legislation if the agency fails to act.
The seven Democrats who urged Shulman and the IRS to crack down on tea party groups aren’t exactly ‘moderates.’ The seven are far left Marxist radicals. The seven include Chuck Schumer of New York, Michael Bennet of Colorado, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Tom Udall of New Mexico, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire and Al Franken of Minnesota. Not exactly known to be moderates. The GOP is complicit in this case.
Suddenly Obama deserves the benefit of the doubt on Benghazi? The man embroiled in the biggest White House scandal since Watergate deserves a benefit of the doubt? John McCain has lost it. He actually lost it years ago, but today was his swan song. Obama who has participated in the Benghazi cover up, then flew off the Las Vegas for a fund raiser the day after the attacks somehow deserves a benefit of the doubt? Do us all a favor John McCain. Please retire. At least don’t run again in 2016. Take your pudgy daughter with you when you go.

22 Republicans voted with Marxist Senate Democrats to implement an Internet sales tax with a bill called the ‘Marketplace Fairness Act.’ S.743 was introduced by RINO Wyoming Sen. Michael Enzi on April 16, 2013. The vote was on an amendment to ‘restore States’ sovereign rights to enforce State and local sales and use tax laws, and for other purposes. The bill passed the Senate 69-27. The list includes your usual gang of RINOS. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, John Thune, etc. The only surprises to me of the 22 Republicans who voted in favor of the Marketplace Fairness Act aka the Internet Sales tax were Deb Fischer and John Boozman. Rob Portman was also a bit of a surprise. The rest, not so much.

John McCain and Lindsey Graham want to assure all Americans that the Boston Bombers wouldn’t slow down the march to amnesty. Both McCain and Graham released a joint state declaring to the American people actually saying that the amnesty bill is a good idea after what the two Chechnyan terrorists did.
