Just last night, talk radio giant Mark Levin, polite but firm, interviewed Sen. Marco Rubio about the “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill.

Apparently, Rubio did not close the sale. This morning Levin took to Twitter and Facebook to say “count me out.” He links to a post at ALIPAC that calls Rubio a “slick used car salesman” and (rightly) calls the bill amnesty:

Rubio talked fast, like a slick used car salesman, but sounded nervous at times, and also didn’t make sense at times (such as when he talked about how Americans wages are being depressed — blatantly ignoring how his amnesty scheme would flood the labor market and drive down Americans wages even more). But Rubio obviously has pro-amnesty talking points down pat about E-Verify (but neglected to mention the long phase in period for this) and other things. And of course, Rubio neglected to mention the big loopholes in his amnesty bill.

A few months ago, Levin had been more receptive to Rubio’s proposal. We’re delighted he has come around.


Surprise! Gang of Ocho immigration bill offers amnesty, not border security

      Actually, what has happened is that Marco Rubio has come out as a full-on Bush client – which he always was.

      Jeb Bush allowed him to act like a faux ally with the tea party in order to try to coopt the tea party through Rubio.

      And Rubio went along with it to further his career.

      Rubio is a Bush Company Man.

    I listened to the interview and when Levin asked Rubio why he thought the government would start enforcing new immigration laws when they don’t care about the ones already on the books, Rubio didn’t have an answer. Levin’s right. The government has shirked their duty and can’t be trusted.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004356157083 Robert Miller

      Levin is right on point here, he also very sternley pointed out he has the utmost repsect for Marco Rubio and considers him a friend and cohort and a true champion of the Conservative cause, but simply disagrees with his stand on this particular piece of proposed legislation, not so much because of Rubio or the ideas contained within here but because of the ineptness and unwillingness of the Feds to carry out any of their sworn duties to the people of this nation unless it benefits the beaurocracy. This legislation is scattered with a lot of circumstances that need to be managed in a very specific order for the desired results to take place. He is absolutley spot on when he says this government cannot be trusted to carry out any of it’s sworn Constitutional duties as required to do so under Federal Law especially with the current bunch of clowns running things so what makes anybody think they will succeed at carrying out this new round of do’s and dont’s. This political aire of “doing something just for the sake of doing something” is why our Federal system is so screwed up now. Simply making up more and more laws and passing them does nothing to improve the quality of life for anybody except the politicians who can go back home and say how great they are and look what we’ve done for you, now give me your vote again so I can continue to live in my tax payer funded lap of luxury. There are way more than enough laws already on the books to satisfy everything this Federal system needs to operate and do it’s sworn duty to us, the taxpayers……….now we just need real leadership in Washington DC, then with a little courage we can start enforcing them.

  • agroulx

    800 pages cannot be summarized in a 20 min interview. Rubio needs to take a step back. Whoever said we have to compromise with Obama?! Walk away from the damn table Marco!

  • Carolyn

    HEY, I have a good idea. How about we enforce the current immigration laws on the books and see how that goes. If it works, and we see progress, then maybe we won’t NEED immigration reform. It has the added bonus of actually seeing our government DO IT’S FREAKIN’ JOB. Let’s call it “good faith”.

    I was like Levin. I wasn’t totally against Rubio’s plan but the more I know about it the more I think it is crap. It is just a way to sell amnesty and there is no real border strengthening going on. Unlike some here I still like Rubio and he hasn’t sold us down the river like McCain and Graham have, but he is completely wrong on this.

    • nc

      It’s called “having an open mind” and listening to the arguments and proposals before you make a decision.

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        I just listened to his interview on Rush Limbaugh. I don’t think he is trying to turn his back on conservatism, I think his heart is in the right place but I think he is completely misguided about how this plan will turn out. It will only hurt us and these illegal immigrants are not going to magically vote conservative..

        • kssturgis62

          I listened to that Interview with Rush too, and the first thing out of Rubio’s mouth was the Following;

          Our Immigration system is broken, our Laws are not being enforced, So we need his bill. Problem solved Marco enforce the Laws on the Books.

          Marco is not a Conservative. Does a Conservative vote for NDAA ? Does a Conservative who got credit for being with Rand Paul during his filibuster, Who wasn’t there, but for 8 Minutes out of 13 hours, then Votes for Brenann, Does a conservative Bash Michelle Bachmann on NPR over her Statements about the Muslim Brotherhood being in the White house. Does a Conservative Stand with John McCain on the Muslim Brother hood issue? Does a conservative lie about taking Illegal Campaign Contributions and then Lied about using the Credit Card in Florida. Does a Conservative hang out just to give Jeb Bush Conservative Credentials. Does a Conservative Gut 31 Immigration Bills in Florida, and then Refuses to allow Voter ID to come to the Floor. If Marco Rubio is a Conservative, then I guess I was never one.

          No one is going to be perfect, I can handle mistakes, But I can’t handle tons of lies, deceptions, and lack of character. He has a quick tongue. To many are willing to buy the Double speak because of charm and Good looks.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            So basically what you are saying is he is a politician. I am not well informed enough on those other incidents but they seem more like typical politicking than bailing on conservative ideology, but I’m with you in that I wasn’t happy with him bailing on the filibuster and Brennan votes. As I said, he is absolutely wrong on immigration. It’s just one issue though and it isn’t what inherently makes us conservative. Listen to him talk about any other issue and the passion in which he speaks then you will find out what makes him conservative. I’m sorry but I’m not ready to throw him overboard yet.

          • kssturgis62

            I do listen to him talk, his speeches are written by others just like all politicians. Yep he has a Great speech. Yep he sounds passionate. But so did and does Pat Toomey on his gun registration. So did Mike Rogers from Michigan who now is pushing CISPA again. Lets see Rick Perry spoke with passion about Illegals also, but had great passion about the USA, but then the records start to show up and the votes. Rubio is not someone I will ever support, he plays the game well. HE has nice hair, good looks, does the dance very well. But I knew that from the Beginning and this woman doesn’t vote on that, she votes on Standards, Values, Morals and Integrity, and this man does not have that. Not anymore.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            Again, it is ONE issue. Also, him being Hispanic I’m sure influences how he feels about it. I know he is a good politician and sometimes he plays party politics, but he is NOT a RINO. He doesn’t ditch us on gun control and other social issues like McCain does and he doesn’t bash the Tea Party like RINOs do. I will fight him on immigration and I think we all should but I still respect him because he stills fights for us on most other issues. Also, we need a charming good looking guy on our side because whether you like it or not that is what the low information voter cares about.

          • http://twitter.com/4ever_a_kafir Travis Wolfeil

            Again, agreed! I think he has reasonable compassion for people who’ve lived a crappy life. So do I. But I also recognize the rule of law. Lines need to be drawn somewhere, liberals.

          • http://perilloux.net/ John S. Perilloux

            You think he’s a “charming, good-looking guy”? What’s your agenda Ben?

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            I was using kssturgis’s words not mine. No agenda but we do need someone with charisma, do you disagree? Not saying it should be Rubio either and if he goes moderate on other issues I will hold his feet to the fire like any other politician. Look, I’m not trying to nominate him for President and he definitely wouldn’t be my choice but we need all the help we can get in Congress and stringing Rubio up over one issue isn’t productive.

          • kssturgis62

            he has gone Moderate on other issues. I watched that full Filibuster with Rand Paul – Rubio was not there – he showed up for a full 8 Minutes, 5 in the morning and 3 at night. What was he doing, asking people who should be in a Hippie Hippie Shake video on Twitter, because of the Filibuster, He was slammed for not being in there and talking about a video, then he went into the Filibuster and bashed Ted Cruz over using Shakespere (exsp) and Patton Quotes. HE quoted Rappers that Are Obama Supporters, He then Voted for Rand Paul and HE supports KARL ROVE’S NEW PAC against tea party Candidates. http://theblacksphere.net/2013/02/rubio-thinks-roves-anti-tea-party-pac-is-a-good-idea/

          • kssturgis62

            IT IS NOT ONE ISSUE, You Obviously Didn’t READ Everything I said he has done and more !!!

          • Sonny Brewer

            kssturgis, Now you have given yourself away.. Rubio 99% of the time never uses a written speech. He speaks what he believes. Therefore he doesn’t need a speech like your friend NoMoBama does.

          • kssturgis62

            Rubio READS Speeches.HE READ HIS SPEECH AT THE REAGAN LIBRARY and Why don’t you go look at this speech RUBIO GAVE ABOUT KARL ROVE – look up his speech about Karl Roves new Project, yes he credits the tea Party, but hey Karl Rove I am so grateful to you, and the money you gave me, yes the people voted and pushed for me, but that is okay, because Karl Rove is not going to do the bad things you think he will. Go READ THAT SPEECH.

            You know that Pac against the TEA PARTY: http://theblacksphere.net/2013/02/rubio-thinks-roves-anti-tea-party-pac-is-a-good-idea/

            I am not in love with OBAMA why because I don’t love your MAN Rubio, I am a Liberal, that is what you have, I CAN GIVE YOU EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM THAT I STATED, But because you must be blinded BY GOOD LOOKS AND NICE HAIR YOU PROBABLY WOULD NOT BELIEVE IT>

            Oh I guess I am liberal because I Can’t Stand Boehner, McCain, Graham, Mike Rogers who helped get CISPA passed yesterday and he is a Republican from my state, and I guess because I can’t stand Flake and how he turned on the People of Arizona, and I am angry at Toomey for what he did about Gun Control. ARE YOU GIVING ALL OF THEM A PASS !!!! NONE OF YOU ARE PAYING ATTENTION. I AM AT LEAST A WOMAN LOOKING AT IT ALL> I DO NOT VOTE ON GOOD LOOKS and FANCY FLUFFY SPEECHES LIKE YOU PROBABLY DO. YOU GUYS AND GALS FOR RUBIO SOUND LIKE THOSE BLINDED SHEEP THAT SUPPORT OBAMA.

            I am just as mad about his stance on illegal immigration as anyone else here, but I am choosing to be objective and look at the big picture instead of unleashing hell on him. I don’t want him to be President, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want him on our side either.

          • Sonny Brewer

            kssturgis62, I have never heard one single Conservative, which I am one of, that hates everything about Rubio. I think your a Democrat in an Elephants suit.

          • http://perilloux.net/ John S. Perilloux

            I don’t believe she hates everything about Rubio, but she’s not in love with him either as Ben Bollman and you seem to be. And because she isn’t in love with him you accuse her of being a Democrat?

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            Why does giving a good conservative on most issues the benefit of the doubt mean I am “in love with him.” You want to go on a witch hunt over ONE ISSUE. Tell me, which one of us is overreacting here?

          • kssturgis62

            HAHAHAHAHAHAHA your hilarious. I am So Conservative it would probably Make you Sick. I am not Libertarian, I believe we need to have laws on the books against Drugs for instance. I do not like Marco because I DO NOT GET BLINDED BY GOOD LOOKS AND FLUFFY SPEECHES. I will not hold my nose again and Vote for people Like this. I look at a person’s Whole Record and how they Vote. Rubio is NOT a Conservative and he Votes JUST LIKE JOHN McCain. Why would a Tea Party Conservative BASH Michelle Bachmann on NPR over the Muslim Brotherhood. Do NOT ACCUSE ME of being Liberal. You Obviously have not seen me post here before, and I FOR ONE HAVE SUFFERED GREATLY BECAUSE I MARRIED A WHITE CANADIAN MALE BY TRYING TO DO IMMIGRATION FOR HIM LEGALLY.

          • http://perilloux.net/ John S. Perilloux

            You are absolutely right, kssturgis62, on all points. After Rubio left the Limbaugh show today, Rush made the statement that he is a real conservative and decried the fact that conservatives are criticizing him. Well, I remember Rush trying to sell us on George W. Bush starting in 1998 and continuing on right through election day. According to Rush, George W. was a conservative too. It didn’t quite work out that way.

          • http://www.facebook.com/pamela.buder Pamela Buder

            I totally agree with you I never trusted Rubio he is another Rino.

    • http://twitter.com/4ever_a_kafir Travis Wolfeil

      Agreed! I like him too, but it’s getting annoying with certain Republicans trying to be softies rather dictating their principles in a clear, firm way. It shouldn’t be that hard to say, “We don’t need ‘immigration reform.’ We already have laws regarding immigration; Mr. President, your job is to enforce them. We oppose illegal immigration because it’s against the Constitution, not because of anyone’s race. We want immigrants who’ll be contributors to our society, not ones who’ll depend on lifetime taxpayer-subsidized handouts.” If he thinks that it’s “too mean” to want to make it too difficult for illegals to live here that they self-deport, will he someday also say that restricting abortion is “too mean”? He needs to understand that 1) the bill’s a disaster, 2) it will only encourage more illegals to cross the border, 3) Obama won’t enforce any laws that punish illegals, and 4) if the bill’s passed, the entire country will have an electorate just like New York. Obamacare alone will lead to a Republican landslide in 2016; Rubio needs to remember that, and not be worried about trying to get Republicans to appear more “nice.”

      • http://perilloux.net/ John S. Perilloux

        I agree with most of your post, but I doubt there will be a landslide for Republicans. That 47% will have increased by the time the election rolls around, and those freeloaders aren’t going to vote away their freebies.

        • http://twitter.com/4ever_a_kafir Travis Wolfeil

          Well, if the Democrat who says Obamacare will lead to a “train wreck” is correct, I think we’re secure. Maybe it won’t be a landslide, but I think enough people will be fed up with the Democrats having destroyed the health care industry by 2016 that liberals won’t have a chance (unless they nominate a woman like Gillibrand or Hillary). Once 2016 rolls around, I don’t think as many people will whine about this country going “backwards” if another “white guy” becomes the next president.

      • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

        You are preaching to the choir. I think people are getting confused about my intentions, I’m just saying he is a good conservative barring this one issue. I don’t want him to run for President either because he is weak willed when it comes to immigration. All I am saying is we shouldn’t tar and feather him over this.

        • http://twitter.com/4ever_a_kafir Travis Wolfeil

          I agree. I’m sick of people acting like he’s a
          “Democratic plant”. Unfortunately, he trusts crooked liberals like Menendez & Schumer way too much. I like him on everything else; I just wish he’d realize that he doesn’t need to be soft on immigration to make sure the GOP doesn’t fade into oblivion.

          • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

            I agree too, he is soft on immigration but I think he is a good person to have on your side which is why I am not ready to cast him out of the party over this.

          • http://twitter.com/4ever_a_kafir Travis Wolfeil

            Exactly. I don’t blame him for innocently thinking that every (illegal) immigrant family didn’t come here to increase the size of the welfare state. He just needs a tiny bit of tweaking. Glad I know I’m not the only one who’s against the bill but still likes him. :) (Sorry about the rant, btw.)

  • Kate

    To be fair, Levin did say that he agrees with Rubio on many other issues- including gun rights, the fiscal cliff deal and healthcare.

    Is Rubio a moderate on immigration? Absolutely. Is he the next Chris Christie? Probably not (although it’s too soon to say for sure).

    Personally, this bill never stood a chance at being sensible or fair. The “Gang of Eight” consisted of 6 progressives and 2 conservatives. Not even close to “balanced.”

  • kssturgis62

    Mark Levin on Facebook Apologized for linking to this Article that Called Rubio a slick Used Car Salesman. He went on to say the following:

    While I oppose the immigration bill, given the border-security issue and Obama’s record of non-enforcement, among other things, I regret linking to a post that refers to Senator Rubio as a slick used car salesman. He is earnest and thoughtful and deserves much better. He loves his country and means well, unlike too many politicians. There are slick used car salesmen on Capitol Hill, many come to mind, but Rubio is certainly not one of them.

    Also, while I’m on the subject, there are bloggers, columnists, and radio hosts who will personally trash Rubio because they think that shows how tough they are on illegal immigration or how conservative they are. Actually, they are pretenders. Most of them have done nothing on this issue or for the conservative movement. Landmark Legal Foundation has been involved in every recent, major piece of litigation against the Obama administration involving illegal immigration, including assisting Arizona in its defense of its law and borders. We went all the way to the Supreme Court. I don’t recall any of these “tough” guys and gals behind their computers and microphones lifting a finger. None of them. Talk is cheap, and many of them are frauds.


    Rubio dipped his hands in the WATER WITH SATAN and is still Getting praised. HE WROTE THIS BILL, He did this. Wow How can you be on the Gang of 8 and NOT Get Credit for this, or Rightfully Called out on it. Come on This is getting crazy, it is AMNESTY, it is what he has done in Florida. It is what he is called to do and has wanted to do since he got to the Senate. He sold the Farm, he is Worse than a Slick Used Car Salesman.

    NO BORDER SECURITY for 10 Years, Free Phones and the list goes on and on. So does that Mean Jeff Flake is sincere in this also. Does that mean when Rubio Voted for Brennan when Rand Paul had his Filibuster that was Okay Too !! So Now you MUST GIVE TOOMEY A PASS ON GUN CONTROL BECAUSE HE IS A GOOD GUY AND JUST GOT SUCKED IN !!! Enough is Enough, IT is time to call out these Bad Apples for who and what they are. Mark I respect you, But Rubio WROTE THIS BILL, HE sat there with all the Others, HE GETS FULL CREDIT AND WAS NOT DUPED, WAS NOT SET UP, WAS NOT TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. HE WROTE THE BILL> IT IS HIS !!

    • Bill

      I agree. Mark Levin felt bad because they are friends. If he were an establishment Republican (which is what Rubio’s turning into) or a democrat and they weren’t friends, Levin would’ve been ALL over him. That’s what happens when you become friends with these politicians. You start losing your complete honesty about them or you don’t express it as much and that’s what Mark is doing.

  • neoface

    In the end they are just politicians. Can you really trust any politicians? Rubio may mean well but unless you compromise some of your principles, nothing will get done and Rubio knows that. Why didn’t Romney win 2012? He was too honest, didn’t lie enough or bloviate his accomplishments like Obama; to these low information voters they just want to know that they will be taken care of, no details please!!!!!

    Ted Cruz, the last principled man standing in the senate. Rubio is not some Bush agent or whatever else it looks like or that I am reading. Jeb Bush isn’t that smart, no reason to give him more credit than he is due. Rubio does the right thing most of the time, just not enough on the important issues. He is trying to make sure he gets the Hispanic vote, but he is pushing his base away. I like Rubio, but I don’t respect him as much as I did before this amnesty push. He is also using the language of the left and calling the illegals aliens, ‘undocumented’ immigrants. Look at Rubio’s voting record, he has been solid on the voting up until now, but this is all it takes to stop the support of informed concerned Americans.

    Okay all you naysayerrs. What’s YOUR plan/ideas then? There are a few irrefutable facts here. The primary being, we are not going to load up 11 million people to ship them into Mexico.

Like I thought, you all are so good at bitchin’ but not real good at comin’ up with any ideas. I applaud Marco for having the guts (knowing full well he’s going to suffer a full-on attack from every direction) to step out to deal w/this issue. Leave him alone. Try to swallow your spit rather than ejecting it out onto the rest of us.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Gary-Jackson/1316589869 Gary Jackson

      The plan? Secure the border in a manner that NO ONE comes into America without permission. As for the illegals here, run em out of the country. You think we can’t deport 11 million criminals? Eisenhower did it when he was president. Oh, and he didn’t just take em to the border. These criminals were loaded on ships and taken to the southern most tip of Mexico before being let out!

      Illegals are criminals. Invaders. They do not belong here and do not deserve any kind of amnesty. If they want a better world, let them go back and overthrow the third world governments from where they came. Americans fought and died for freedom. If that’s what these criminal trespassers want, let them fight and die on THEIR soil to achieve it. America is NOT the world’s ATM.

  • Bill

    Rubio’s full of crap. I have always been very suspicious of him ever since he and Jeb Bush spoke out against the Arizona law 3 yrs ago and then immediately retracted his position from the huge backlash he got. He’s in this for a presidential run and he’s totally pandering for the hispanic vote because he’s “one of them.” He thinks he’s a shoe-in apparently so he’s being a total politician and not standing on principal. He was so full of it on Levin’s show when I heard him. Levin kept going back to the part about securing the border first and Rubio kept BSing about how the fence will be started once the law is passed and all this BS. Just wish he and Levin weren’t friends because Mark would’ve pressed him even harder but it was still good because Rubio is showing his true colors on this issue.

  • Isabella1709

    Senator Rubio had better decide whom it is he will be loyal to. He is my Senator, and I supported him. But not for amnesty. I do love the Hispanic people but expect them to come here legally. I was against Reagan’s amnesty deal because I knew the Dems lie and true to form they did not do anything they promised to reinforce the border with Mexico, and frankly that ran us out of California. My family has lived in America for 300 years and I was the one that was displaced because we couldn’t afford to continue living in San Diego, or even in the state eventually. Never again, thanks. I will not again support Marco.

    Strange how 2 of the biggest issues the government is working on, namely immigration and gun control, would be non-issues if the government enforced the laws currently on the books.

    I listened to Rubio today on Rush Limbaugh’s program and heard quite a few statements that Rush should have challenged but didn’t. Rubio’s plan is to legalize those 20 million illegals that are here already in an attempt to build up his power base. He is a slick, fast-talking snake oil salesman and is not to be trusted.

    Mr. Levin only needs to keep an audience. Senator Rubio needs to try and change an institution. Being critical of Rubio is not helping the cause.

    • Richard Wayne

      To be fair, Rush, Levin, and Hannity have been much more polite and thoughtful to Rubio despite his questionable judgment in joining a ‘gang’ in the Senate which is known for jamming bills down our throats. If Rubio wants to change an institution, he needs to stick to principles and respect the process. (unlike McCain, Graham, or any other RINO out there). I like Rubio, but he is making me nervous with this.

      Seriously? Rubio, along with the far left, are purposely destroying America. Traitors like Rubio need to be primaried in their next election.

    I have yet to hear anyone address the Anchor Baby issue and Chain Migration? I was hoping Levin would have done that last night.

    I am lived and Mass and was a registered Independent for years.. although always a conservative.. did not see the point in registering as a Republican there – then I moved to NH a few years ago and registered as a Republican, now this state is as liberal as Mass.. I think Republicans are not much different than Democrats today minus a few. I am going to register as Libertarian going forward, closer to my views anyway and at this point the whole country seems to be going to hell and I am so frustrated I am not sure it matters anymore.. we are doomed.

    the border enforcement is a joke, the amnesty begins immediately and while they promise no illegals will get benefits, they already do. from foodstamps and medicaid to pell grants and public housing, to free cell phones and internet to free daycare and preschool to free brakfast and lunh at school to HEAP and WIC and EIC payments made to them under the identities they’ve stolen in order to work here.

    Rubio’s immigration reform plan is another sham. Let me get this straight. The government is willing to confiscate millions of law-abiding citizen’s guns but does not have the resources to round up and deport 12 million illegal aliens??? Give me a freakin’ break!!!

    • oconnellc

      Right. Hell, we probably only need a couple hundred guys to go into every large and small city in the country, searching through apartments and homes, checking the ‘papers’ of every brown person they see. After all, it is only 12 million people, right? How long could that take? I mean, if they start next Tuesday, they could have all 12 million rounded up in 30 or 40 years.

      You idiot.

    Hello Rand Paul 2016
    Goodbye John McCain

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Gary-Jackson/1316589869 Gary Jackson

      Rand Paul is supporting amnesty as well. There is NO Congresscritter who is qualified to be president. NONE.

    Government is talking about sending troops to Jordan but we can’t send troops to the mexican border

  • James Rose

    Did Rubio fake Conservative principles to get elected or did McCain convert him to RINO?

  • Allan Craig

    Hate to say it, but it looks like Rubio is turning RINO in order to maximize his appeal for 2016. If he’s concerned about wages being depressed, what is allowing ten million new peeps to come out and gain legal jobs going to do to help that? So sad. Another Tea Partier gets tanked by the RINO mush machine.

  • Dave

    Fifty Cal military unit every two miles roving at the border takes care of the border problem

  • BenY

    Rubio either has no principles, he ran on NO amnesty, or he is stupid. Either way he should not be re-elected. We need to stop giving these guys a pass just because they spout some flowery words.

  • Paul Andrusko

    Yea more cheap labor to compete with working people on the ropes supporting do nothings, Wall street and obama care. Pensions-gone, SSI-stolen by legal/illegal immigrants + lackies, good gosh where does it end?

  • Doris Tilbury

    Has Rubio been vetted? Does he pass the immigration test?

  • M Haycox

    Goverment fails at every progressive plan!
    Liberal progressive strategies are morally and intellectually bankrupt! Never has liberalism ever made America stronger or more secure!
