Political Ignorance

I need to vent. I remember some years back when McCain was trying to get nominated, and I attended the local Republican caucus. One woman announce that she was supporting McCain because she knew he would do something about all the illegal aliens. She honestly didn't know that he was at the forefront of the 'amnesty for everybody' program, and was simply assuming that a Republican who'd been a POW in Vietnam would just naturally take the patriotic side of the issue.

And now we're seeing it again, with a bunch of people somehow thinking Marco Rubio would be good on the issue, when he's one of the biggest amnesty advocates around. So, as I keep telling everybody, the only candidate in either party who has shown signs of actually having a non-traitorous immigration policy is Trump.

If you still have doubts about Rubio's treasonous bearing, here's what Phyllis Schalfly says at World Net Daily [link["

SCHLAFLY UNLOADS ON RUBIO: 'HE BETRAYED US ALL'

Conservative icon calls media favorite 'lackey for the establishment'


In 2009, Marco Rubio was a plucky challenger for the open Senate in Florida, taking on incumbent Republican Gov. Charlie Crist. Though Rubio was trailing in the polls, one leading conservative activist thought that he had real potential and vowed to help him.
“When Marco Rubio ran for the Senate in Florida, I think I was the first one to endorse him,” said Phyllis Schlafly. “I made a trip down to Florida in 2009 just for the purpose of helping him.”
But Schlafly, a legendary conservative activist, author, and WND columnist, now says she is bitterly disappointed by Rubio’s record once he got what he wanted.
“Once he got elected, he betrayed us all,” she told WND. “He said he was against amnesty and against the establishment. And once he got in, right away, he became an agent of the establishment. And now of course he’s big for amnesty and letting all the illegal immigrants in. He betrayed us a number of times on that issue.”
Schlafly said she was startled at the magnitude of Rubio’s “betrayal” on amnesty.
“It was so public,” she said.
“He’s a lackey for the establishment now,” she said. “There’s no question they’re picking up as Plan B – or maybe Plan C in this election cycle or whatever we’re on now – but he certainly is an establishment agent.”

  1. Yeah, but Phyllis, Ricky Ricardo Rubyouthewrongway has bills to pay. His credit card bills are just horrendous. He needs a do-nothing high paying job to pay those late fees and charges. Its not like he has skills. But he's kinda brown so skills and talent are not factors. So vote early and often cause Babylon needs a Babalu to blow up and go away.

    You ain't the only one who's noticed that.
    I'm ashamed to say I voted for him, even Gov. Crist would have been better.
    But here's what is even more telling, as you know Santorum called it quits then threw his support to Rubio. Say what you will about MSNBC (and it deserves all the abuse it gets), some of their anchors asked Santorum ''Name ONE accomplishment of Marco Rubio in the US Senate'' which was a straightforward and fair question. Santorum takes the handoff, he's hit! FUMBLE! Recovered by the defense....

    BTW, Panthers by 5 and Mountain Dew didn't learn a thing from Crystal Pepsi and at least that commercial was good... This one, yikes.
    And they spent $10s of millions to make that and buy the ad spots for it.
    Someone needs fired.
    At least you'll know when it's time to go raid the fridge.

  4. A Cuban import named Rubio might not be tough on immigration? Shocking. (Seriously, how do people get THIS stupid?)
