Palin’s tweet links to a story from TownHall.com detailing Sen. Marco Rubio’s (D-Fla.) flip-flop over amnesty for illegal immigrants.

During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an “earned path to citizenship,” which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty.

Rubio, who won that 2010 election, is now the leading Republican in the U.S. Congress pushing for illegal aliens to be given the earned path to citizenship that he himself insisted was “code for amnesty” only three years ago.

Palin’s sentiments are shared by others who are fed up with the broken promises from Washington.

    • David Mueller

      I am particularly interested in the “requirement” to learn English. Is this a joke? How is that constitutionally passable? You have to learn something? What’s next, a law that requires people to learn calculus? And how on earth are they going to enforce this stupid requirement? Are we going to have this requirement for low information voters as well?

      • Richard Wayne

        While I don’t believe the learn english requirement in itself is a stupid notion, I do think it is something that will get nixed by the courts. You could almost hear the special interest groups lining up the litigation for that.

        Bottom line, if the current rules and regulations are too harsh and politically unfeasible, so are all of these new rules. If we can’t deport now, why all of a sudden will we be able to deport tomorrow.

        We need real reform to the immigration courts for security in addition to a million other things.

            the fact of the matter is whatever teeth they put into requiring illegals to learn English will not be enforced. their concern has never been “should we force them to learn English”, it’s “how can we make every sign and document bilingual”.

    Palin has flip flopped herself on amnesty.

    In 2008, she fully supported a pathway to citizenship.

    In 2010, she fully endorsed Senator John McAmnesty for reelection.

    In 2010, when asked by Hannity if she supported amnesty Palin replied, “Not total amnesty.”

    In 2010, when interviewed by Bill O’Reiley, she was so incoherently vague and contradictory that she supported kicking them out, then letting them stay… but not giving them green cards, but offering the incentive of citizenship as a reward for following the rules.

    In 2013, Palin tweets potshots at others without having to answer any specific questions as to where exactly she stands.

    Typical Palin.

    • sallychuck

      There is NO contradiction at all in her stance on a pathway to citizenship. Even undocumented immigrants can be granted a pathway to citizenship – for instance if they found employers who would be willing to sponsor them or if they marry citizens. I can’t read her mind but that in my view, that qualifies as “not total amnesty”.

      As for endorsing McCain in 2010, look, the guy introduced Palin to America in 2008. Even if they disagreed on some issues, it was understandable why she would stand beside him. It’s called “showing your gratitude.” What I can’t wait to hear is for someone to ask her now (2013) what she thinks of McCain’s push for amnesty and my guess is he’d get a Rubio treatment as well.

    • AbdullahtheButcher

      >Palin has flip flopped herself on amnesty.

      Or maybe she just changed her mind. People can and do that, you know.

      >In 2008, she fully supported a pathway to citizenship.

      With all due respect, a “pathway to citizenship” could well mean any number of things. Also, she was McCain’s running mate, she probably felt she could ill afford to openly oppose him.

      >In 2010, she fully endorsed Senator John McAmnesty for reelection.

      She probably felt obligated to him for introducing her to the national stage.

      >In 2010, when asked by Hannity if she supported amnesty Palin replied, “Not total amnesty.”

      >In 2010, when interviewed by Bill O’Reiley, she was so incoherently vague and contradictory that she supported kicking them out, then letting them stay… but not giving them green cards, but offering the incentive of citizenship as a reward for following the rules.

      She was probably trying to straddle the fence as it were. Not uncommon for political figures of all stripes.

      Palin Supported Amnest as long as it was with the Border work being done first. Dont forget that little tidbit of info.

    • sallychuck

      Palin is right to support a pathway to citizenship because we already have a path to citizenship in the books. Even undocumented immigrants can be granted a path to citizenship and not be prosecuted -if, for instance, they’re able to find employers who are willing to sponsor them or of they marry a citizen. That, in my view , qualifies for “not total amnesty.” There really isn’t a contradiction in her stance.

      As for her support for McCain’s reelection, look, the guy introduced her to America in 2008. Even if they disagreed in some issues, standing beside him in 2010 was quite understandable. It’s called “showing your gratitude.” She’ll probably give him the Rubio treatment this time around.

      Maybe Sarah Palin believes she has a plan to solve illegal immigration and knows what to do with the 11 million people here illegally.

      Maybe Sarah Palin knows the specifics of that plan and is willing to put it in writing for all to see.

      Maybe Sarah Palin is has enough confidence in her plan and a strong enough grasp of the details that she is willing to discuss and debate the details with those who are skeptical or those who disagree.

      Maybe Sarah Palin will be able to go toe to toe with her opponents and make a good conservative argument with a liberal as to what we should do and how we should do it.

      ………. but nahhh. Never happen. It is too easy for Sarah Palin to tweet a catchy zinger then go get her hair done.

      • idesign2

        All I see you doing is attacking Palin, but no words regarding Rubio.

        • RUexperienced

          First of all, “know” is not the same word as “no.” I think they teach that in school.

          Secondly, why doesn’t Palin talk specifics? Why does she simply take pot shots from the sidelines? She’s not willing to fight somebody on the issues. She’s only willing to throw a sucker punch, then run away.

          Rubio, whether you agree with his stance on the Immigration bill, at least has the cohones (as Sarah Palin calls them) to stand up for what he believes in. He brings a detailed proposal to the table for people to dissect, then is willing to debate it with those who agree and those who do not.

          • idesign2

            That’s the thing. You have no opinion on Rubio or amnesty, but you continue to attack Palin. Seems you’re either a RINO squish, or have a personal dislike for Palin.

            “…at least has the cohones (as Sarah Palin calls them) to stand up for what he believes in.” The thing is, it’s not his job to “stand up for what he believes in” but it is his job to stand up for what his constituents believe in. That is what’s at the very core of all that is wrong with Congress these days, they do what they want with total disregard for what those who put them in office want. We put them in Congress to have OUR voices heard, not THEIRS.

            Even Sarah Palin has stated she believed in a “pathway to citizenship” (amnesty), then two years later it was “not total amnesty,” and today she is “against amnesty.” But Rubio says the same thing.

            Why won’t Palin discuss details. Rubio, I’m sure, would welcome any well thought out proposals that would improve the bill.

          • Michelle

            Why is your focus on what Palin said in the past? Who, at this current moment, has the ability to vote yes or no on that bill? Personally, I’m more concerned about the person who is in position to be a part of that bill passing or failing, and that would be Rubio, not Palin.

          • RUexperienced

            Palin’s credibility on this issue is zero. She has flip flopped all over the place over the last five years.

            If she is truly the leader of the TEA Party, as many people believe, why hasn’t she offered a detailed immigration plan?

          • Michelle

            Because she’s not a member of Congress? Help me understand where you’re coming from because honestly it appears your only purpose here is to trash Palin and continue to avoid the issue at hand – amnesty for illegals. Let’s say she came up with an outstanding and perfect plan that appealed to LEGAL Americans, where do you expect she would go with it right now? Seriously, why are you more upset with Palin’s past views than you are with Rubio’s CURRENT views, the very same views that sell out Americans?

            Q and A with Sarah Palin:

            Q: Should undocumented immigrants all be deported?

            A: There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant–there are about12 million of the illegal immigrants–not only economically is that just an impossibility but that’s not a humane way anyway to deal with the issue.

            Q: Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 million undocumented immigrants?

            A:
            No, I do not. Not total amnesty. You know, people have got to follow the rules. We have got to make sure that there
            is equal opportunity and those who are here legally should be first in line for services being provided and those opportunities that this greatcountry provides.

            Q: So you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?

            A:
            I do because I understand why people would want to be in America. To seek the safety and prosperity, the opportunities, the health that is here. It is so
            important that yes, people follow the rules so that people can be treated equally and fairly in this country.

            http://www.ontheissues.org/2012/Sarah_Palin_Immigration.htm

          • poh

            Well reasoned arguments.

            Illegal aliens should be deported. Obamacare and the sustainability of the myriad of welfare programs (including corporate welfare) are economically impossible too.

            So, rules need to be followed. However; in the course of braking certain rules, if one (or more) can redefined the previously established penalty as inhumane and have the sanctions changed to accommodate a more humane solution the rule is simply a suggestion. The victim is not the rule breaker, but the U.S. citizens and taxpayers in this case.

            The illegal aliens are seeking a better life. That’s great. If they all want to become citizens, again, the more the merrier. However, we have a process. It may not be the best, but it exists. If we want to improve it fine. To improve it to accommodate the illegals it’s not solving the problem in the place they are coming from, and they will keep coming. The solution is not for us to change our system of government to accommodate their system of government’s inability to improve their lives. If that’s what we’re going to do, I just as soon take over Mexico. They can all become U.S.citizens and get any and all benefits thereunder.

            The first concern of treating anyone fairly should be for the citizens of this country. Many are out of work and need leadership. Helping illegals first is simply morally wrong. It puts U.S. citizens behind illegal aliens – whether they have documents or not.

          • RUexperienced

            Well reasoned arguments.

            Illegal aliens should be deported.

            Sarah Palin says that your position is not economically possible and is not humane.

            On that point she is correct.

            Sarah Palin says that they should register with the government. And that those who do follow the rules should be allowed to stay with certain conditions attached.

          • poh

            I have no problem with anyone wanting to become a citizen. However; we shouldn’t make new rules to accommodate rule breaking because it’s done in large numbers.

          • RUexperienced

            I am more in agreement with Palin 2010 version.

            The US cannot and will not round up 12 million people and dump them on the other side of Brownsville Texas and leave them to their own ends.

            Many of these people have been here for decades.

            There must be a legal pathway to permanent residency. (not in favor of citizenship)

            But we need to admit that the United States of America is not EVER going to put 12 million people on planes or trains and ship them to Mexico.

            The two questions that need to be answered are this: How do we secure the boarders? What do we do with the 12 million people?

          • Succinct

            In 2010, Palin said: “Whatever it takes…no amnesty…keep it simple.” Sounds credible to me…

            First of all, Palin went out on a limb and endorsed Rubio, which got him elected. Now Rubio is in bed with Schumer and the rest of the Senate bottom-feeders, and this amnesty plan is right out of the Democratic playbook.

            I don’t blame Palin one bit for feeling betrayed by Rubio, because millions of us feel the same way about him. He is currently not distinguishable from a Dem., and this is not why he was elected. He ignores history when it comes to the Hispanic vote–the majority don’t vote conservative and never will. He is helping win future voters for the other side, and this is completely unacceptable!

          • RUexperienced

            Sarah Palin never said she felt “betrayed” by Rubio.

            And, yes, Palin endorsed Rubio, as did MANY MANY other conservatives. But even in 2010 Rubio knew Palin was so polarizing that he would not stand on stage with her.

            And I will bet you money that Sarah Palin endorses Rubio for reelection.

          • Billie Slash

            Both of your posts contradict each other, and I never quoted Palin as saying she felt betrayed. That was solely my observation. Rubio is finished. He may as well turn Democrat.

          She is all over the place…. pro- anti- pro with conditions etc. If she is willing to debate the issue, then she should.

          Rubio at least has the guts to put it on paper and debate it.

          Palin? Not so much.

          • Lisa Moore

            She knows that this bill is a bad bill. What else really matters at this moment in time?THat is what counts. Not bashing Palin. That is so last week. Get a new life.

          • Michelle

            Right now at this moment, which one has the ability to effect the outcome of this reform bill – Rubio or Palin?

      • poh

        Last I checked, she’s not elected to Congress. Those that have been elected are fair game for everyone on any issue.

  • Bette

    The question remains: Why did Rubio do this. Was it Jeb Bush’s support? Is it ethnic identity? I don’t get it. Unless he backs out, there is nothing much left of his career. If he does back out, it might be a very long rehabilitation, if it is possible at all.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeBeq0i03bg Booker

    The guy’s been hanging around these ethnic front groups for far too long. Rubio, get to the back off the line! No White House aspirations for you! Ted Cruz, move forward.

    • thetreyman

      cruz is the most solid conservative i have seen since i cant remember when. he balances government power and civil liberties in everything that has come up. and so far, it has been the right balance. that is why the progressives in both parties hate him and why we freedom loving people love him.

      • jester2939

        Cruz, like Palin, is the real deal. What they say is what they do.

  • Summer

    There is only a small handful of republicans we can trust… I used to like Rubio, but not with this amnesty. We cannot reward criminals.

    Rubio is an hispanic first and an American second. And I am questioning his judgement, motives AND patriotism.

  • $3838536

    Sarah Barracuda bites mudfish Rubio. The little jerk owes his Senate seat to Gov. Palin.

  • thunderstrikes

    I love the logic that because Rubio’s believes in amnesty he’s an America-hating liberal RINO, never mind that he is a solid conservative in every single other issue. I do vehemently oppose the amnesty, but if we disapprove of anybody who we don’t agree with completely, we will be doomed. Reagan is rolling in his grave.

    • V the K

      And on what other conservative issue that he is “rock solid” on has he gone all-in the way he has for Amnesty? And why is this “rock-solid” conservative jumping into bed with McCain, Schumer, and Durbin instead of more conservative colleagues?

    • RUexperienced

      Agree.

      • mickeyco

        Well of course you do. You’ve never had an original thought.

    • Guest

      What about the corrupt vote for Jack Lew? That was a Bush Crime Family vote. What about the vote for Kerry? That was in true RINO Prescott Bush mode. What about his advocating arming the Syrian rebels? Pure RINO Big Government Bush mafia all the freakin way! Take your Tokyo Rove propaganda somewhere else. We Floridians are fed up with Jeb’s lapdog Waterboy. Screwbio is T.O.A.S.T. Move him to your damn state. He’s out of here!
      Rubio is solid corrupt crony capitalist all the way. “Bought and Paid For” courtesy of Mama Bush’s rolodex. Think much, DUH!

    • jester2939

      We’ll be doomed if this amnesty goes through.

  • Chip

    Rubio isn’t the “leading republican.” He is a tool being used by Gramps McCain and Goober Graham to ensure they have a legacy before they are shoved out to pasture.

  • Timbet
  • 912er

    It is amazing the fundamental transformation of Rubio……I think he along with other republicans are being convinced the future belongs to big government…..and they given the chose to get on board or be destroyed…..Looks like a lot of them are jumping on.

  • NixTyranny

    Rubio caught Cristitis which inevitably leads to electile dysfunction. It is a terminal disease for which there is no cure and it will result in a severely shortened political life. Sadly, it was totally avoidable and was a direct result of the actions and poor judgment of the afflicted.

    • lee martell

      Very Clever, I may have to ‘appropriate; those descriptions.

  • AmericanMom

    Initially I was impressed with Rubio and had high hopes for his political career. When he sank his teeth in this Gang of Eight, this hopes evaporated and will never again surface, no matter what he says or does. America’s sovereignty matters!

  • FeralFemale

    For months and months I’ve been trying to warn people about Rubio. He is a crook. Now he is a flip flopping crook. Even if people utterly ignored my intitial warnings about him when he was the Right’s golden boy, I’m glad people are finally waking up to him based on his lying, rino ways.

    • lee martell

      Before this Amnesty-Charade, I would never, ever have believed you. Now, it makes me sad, but relieved that we know this early in the game, just what kind or political Chameleon we are dealing with.

  • YourGMa

    Rubio was against amnesty when he was trying to get elected, but soon after getting elected, he pushed hard for amnesty. What a dishonest politician.
    .

    • RUexperienced

      And Palin was FOR AMNESTY when she was trying to get elected in 2008….. and in 2010 she was pushing for “not total amnesty.”

      Now Palin is pushing against all of it.

      Who is the dishonest one?

      • YourGMa

        BS. You spew stuff without proof. You just make things up like Jeb and Rubio.
        .

      • Succinct

        In 2010, Palin said: “Whatever it takes…no amnesty…keep it simple.”

      • http://www.leaguelineup.com/docs DocBarry1

        U r wrong she has been for securing the border first then we deal with illegals

        • RUexperienced

          I agree she wants to secure the boarders.

          But it is her “deal with illegals” plan that I am talking about.

      • mike_in_kosovo

        And Palin was FOR AMNESTY when she was trying to get elected in 2008

        Path to citizenship amnesty

        Who is the dishonest one?

        You, since you keep consistently misrepresenting the issue.

        • lee martell

          It is a very FINE difference, easy to mix up, even for us Tea Partiers who keep up with the Real real news. The difference between spaghetti and vermincelli.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            I think it’s more that it’s become a convenient ‘handle’ to put on anything having to do with immigration, and it gets used so much in regards to immigration that it becomes the ‘default’ mode of thought.

            Edit to add: Unfortunately, it seems to have become the default mode of legislation, too.

        • RUexperienced

          Q: Should undocumented immigrants all be deported?

          Palin: There is no way
          that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant–there are about
          12 million of the illegal immigrants–not only economically is that
          just an impossibility but that’s
          not a humane way anyway to deal with the issue.

          Q: Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 million undocumented immigrants?

          Palin:
          No, I do not. Not total amnesty. You know, people have got to follow
          the rules. We have got to make sure that there
          is equal opportunity and those who are here legally should be first in
          line for services being provided and those opportunities that this great
          country provides.

          Q: So you support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants?

          Palin:
          I do because
          I understand why people would want to be in America. To seek the safety
          and prosperity, the opportunities, the health that is here. It is so
          important that yes, people follow the rules so that people can be
          treated equally and fairly in this country.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            And you’re thinking this proves she’s calling for an amnesty, how?

          • RUexperienced

            Palin for the last five years has advocated for “a pathway to citizenship.”

            So I am curious as to what the Palin pathway looks like, and how it differs from Rubio’s.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Why? Palin isn’t in office, Rubio is.

            Stalker much?

          • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

            First they aren’t undocumented immigrants- they are illegally residing in the United States a sovereign country. Second after breaking the law there is no reason to offer law breakers a reward of U.S. citizenship. If these “shadow people” really wanted U.S. citizenship they would go home and apply. They want the perks of living in this country without the responsibility of being a citizen- because they aren’t citizen’s of the US, they already have a country of origin they belong to and most of them are loyal to their country of origin NOT the US.

            It’s noted that even if this legislation passes that 5 to 6 million of these “squatters” will not come out of the shadows, because they aren’t stupid – they don’t trust “government” which makes them a lot smarter than the low information voters in this country. The same low information voters who make pathetic arguments on their behalf. PT Barnum was right one is born every minute.

  • jetch

    Rubio thinks he’s the next Obama. serve one term in office and jump straight to the presidency. he is in for a rude surprise if he really thinks he’ll get any support from dems once they are done with him. even though he’s taken their side, they will be the one posting ads about HIS flip-flops and lies.

  • YourGMa

    Rubio lies like Jeb Bush and Chris Christie.
    If Rubio’s amnesty is so great why is he lying?

    .

  • YourGMa

    To get elected, candidate Rubio claimed in 2010 that “An earned path to citizenship is basically code for amnesty”.
    After getting elected he denied that the path to citizenship in his bill is amnesty.
    Politicians like Marco Rubio, Jeb Bushie and Chris Christie would say anything to get elected, then hope that the electorate have short term memory.

  • BAW

    After thinking about it I’m thinking that if Rubio is indeed the decent man we all thought he was, if one person can make him realize just how badly he has betrayed everyone who supported him, it might be Palin.

    Probably just grasping at straws but I hate to be so wrong about someone as I apparently was about Rubio.

    • lee martell

      I think he has sold us out to get his $20. million ‘guaranteed’ donation from Dr. Faustus, Oh, I mean, from SOROS.
      These old snakes are toying with him like a glittery Yo-Yo!

    • Ted Crawford

      “I hate to be so wrong” I know exactly how you feel! I’m embarrassed to have to admit I fell, 100% for the Academy Award Winning Performance of Chris Christie! I’ve been involved in politics since 1968 and it’s been a very long time since I was last so completely WRONG about anyone!

      • BAW

        I think Christie is great for New Jersey. He is truly a fiscal conservative and he’s tough. I like him just don’t want him as President. But you sound like me. I was fooled when I was young and voted for Jimmy Carter. I’ve been much more careful and thoughtful since then. But I generally don’t expect too much from any of them and that’s where I really went wrong up with Rubio. I expected a lot and he’s not even close. So far Ted Cruz has not let me down but even with him I’m trying to temper my expectations.

  • YourGMa

    Rubio is getting ridiculous in his desperation to push amnesty. He claimed: “We need to legalize immigrants so they can pay for border security”

      But getting these poor Mexicans/Illegals to pay for Border Security is like trying to squeeze blood from a stone…Some come to work, and many come to reap the benefits of our Government. It’s a major conundrum…Just sayin… Jawamax 8<{D}

  • YourGMa

    Rubio says different things to different people. In a Spanish language interview, Rubio boasted that the bill puts amnesty first before increasing border security. To others, he said that the bill puts border security first. Rubio was caught in his own web of lies.

    For those who missed it, follows is the statement that she issued on her FB page, not only naming Senator Rubio, but also Senators Begich and Murkowski:

Also time for an uprising of the people to force this to happen because we know that the political class will never submit to any of this unless we force their hands! Except for Ted Cruz & Vickie Hartzler, NONE of these people are worth the 6 figure salaries plus that rolls royce Golden Fleece benefits pkg we are paying these fools to not read important bills like amnesty & obamacare and to not serve us like we hired them to do!!!
