Only Marco Rubio Can Save Marco Rubio

Kurt Schlichter:

Run away, Marco, run as fast as you can. Run away from the electoral Hiroshima that is this immigration reform bill. It’s a fraud and a scam, and we know it’s a fraud and a scam, and you telling us from every mic and every camera you can get in front of that it’s not a fraud and a scam is making us wonder just what the hell is going on with you.

Do you actually think it’s not a fraud and a scam? In that case, we worry that maybe you’re not as bright as we thought from your terrific work on other issues over the last few years.

That’s bad.

I’ve never seen a politician self-immolate so thoroughly and so quickly over policy. They usually need a live boy or a dead girl or a freezer full of money to get the job done.

It’s a little heartbreaking, too. At the RNC last summer, Rubio was the closest thing to Reagan I’d seen in a generation. And he’s determined to throw it all away on a terrible piece of immigration “reform.”

He's Hispanic first, American second. Or maybe, he thinks he can win over Hispanics with this. If that is the case, he fails to understand that, we already have the votes of those who are not the Democratic gravy train.

FWIW, I don't care why he's taking the wrong position on this -- only that he is and that the argument he offers to defend his position is unworthy of the issue.

"..., Rubio was the closest thing to Reagan I’d seen in a generation. "

Reagan is dead. Stone cold dead. There is no other 'Reagan,' around here; quit looking for him for you may find someone who 'you think' is another Reagan, and then we'll have hell to pay for making a blind choice.

Let us look instead for someone with true conservative values and positions on the major themes of our times. We'll recognize the Truth when we see and hear him or her, and we won't be taken aback by deviations like so many of Republicans are willing to accept for political advantage.

Christie of NJ will become a Democrat before 2016.
Rubio may follow.

Conservatives or liberals, they are politicians who care more about self-preservation.

If Scott Brown had changed his party, he would be the senior senator from Mass. The 1/32 Cherokee woman would be JFKerry's replacement.

It's just more of the dawning of The Bizarro World. I've understood little about the nation since November 6, 2012.

No problem, just read Gibbon. Then you'll know everything you need to know about America.

Oh, PFUI. The Roman empire more closely resembled the former Soviet Union. It didn't even have the vestige of capitalism we have. The whole "We will fall because Rome fell" is a piece of Soviet Agit Prop still floating free in the culture. It equates Capitalism with imperialism even though imperialism is a feature of statist/totalitarian regimes. To quote my friend Dave Freer, "Americans are terrible imperialists. All they want to do is go home."
So, let's stop with that nonsense ALREADY. Enough is enough. Unless, of course, you enjoy being a tool of the dead Soviet Empire. Talk about Zombie Apocalypse.
