Why Limbaugh is gushing
over Marco Rubio

CNN, by Ruben Navarrette

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 2/1/2013 8:59:55 AM

The phrase: "President Marco Rubio" is music to the ears of conservatives who are eager to prove they are not anti-Hispanic while still supporting one of their own: a solid conservative. And so it is that, as the immigration debate reignites, the Florida senator´s star power is winning over the world of conservative talk radio. Whether it´s the radio shows hosted by Mark Levin or Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh, Rubio´s appearances are being met with gushing accolades. The talkers are not sold on everything he says about

Comments:
I remember Rush gushing over W. the first go around when some questioned his conservative bona fides. Rush was fooled (and so were we.) But the Rubio love-fest sickens me. I´ve switched off the radio with disgust more this month then ever before.

Rush is to Rubio what Ann Coulter is to Christie - - completely blinded by false perception.

"Azucar" Rubio is nothing more than a sock puppet for the Big Lobbies who lust after government subsidies provided with money stolen from us.

Anyone who thinks Azucar will serve any interests but his own - - is a fool and a chump.

Rubio is OK, but Ted Cruz is well above him.

I want to see our new US Senator serve for 6-12 years then be our next US Supreme Court Chief Justice, IF he continues doing what he is doing.

Rush Limbaugh´s political loyalties are only as solid as the fluctuation of his ratings. When Rubio is no longer useful, Limbaugh will turn.

The major block in the immigration ideas put forth so far (excepting Obama´s "outline") is that the unions are prepared to kill any semblance of a guest worker program. It´s not about jobs, it´s about organization. The unions cannot organize guest workers, but they are looking forward to organizing the new citizens or the ones who can legally take jobs in the US. Barack Obama actively helped the unions kill any previous such efforts to incorporate the vital guest worker part of a plan. You will notice Obama made no mention of guest workers in his big immigration rollout. Without the guest worker segment, Republicans will absolutely not support a plan.

I call BS. Rush addressed this the other day. He stated he was opposed to the Amnesty Bill but was impressed with Rubio´s articulate manner in which he presented his case. He understood that no progress would be made with Republican support until the border was sealed. CNN is trying to make a wedge issue out of this. Don´t buy into it.

I will forever think W was a great President OP. After 911 I remember believing there was no way he could prevent another similar terrorist attack. Still a proud thirty percenter. That´s right up there in my book with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.

Rubio is a powerful fiscal conservative, he´s leading on immigration instead of playing defense, the left is scared of him, and he´s in for four years of the media wing of the Democrat party like CNN going after him.

I´d have voted for him in ´12.

Notice that it blows right by this author that it may be that those listening to talk radio might have no interest whether he is Hispanic or if he can get that vote. It might be that conservatives want someone who will FOLLOW THE U.S. CONSTITUTION!

Republicans must always be painted as having ulterior motives that have a desire to stop the Democrat attempts to do "good".

I´m not six years old and I don´t need someone to explain things to me. I like Rush and respect his opinion, but I do my own thinking, thank you, nor do I put all my political eggs in one basket. I may like what someone is saying at the moment, I just want to see if they stick to it over time or change their minds to get votes when the time comes.

Well we will see what Rubio does when he can´t get border security first. Schumer and Obama have already said securing the border will come later (that means never in Democratic speak). If Rubio caves and buys into securing the border later then all this "gushing" will end. If that happens then he is just another potential presidential candidate like Jeb Bush. The Tea Party will walk away from him if they haven´t already started. I´m against amnesty but if it happens I don´t believe any illegal should get the right to vote ever in IMHO!

"...conservatives who are eager to prove they are not anti-Hispanic while still supporting one of their own." Classic liberal projection. This does not describe conservative motivation, but is, in fact, why Barak Hussein Obama is president of the United States of America. Liberals disgust me.

Rubio is an inexperienced US Senator and Republicans have to oppose any deal that he comes up with that would affectively turn the illegal alien population into new Democrat voters like any special path to citizenship amnesty, no matter what they call it. Nobody knows how many illegal aliens are here, Obama´s water carriers in the liberal media have been stuck on claiming the figure of 11 million now for sometime, but in actuality there could be 20 million or more illegal aliens here now.

If such a Obama special path to citizenship amnesty comes about, you can bet that through their political allies the many very liberal ethnic and immigrant activist groups who operate in immigrant communities, the liberal Democrats with organize just about all the legalized aliens into what amounts to a future liberal Democrat voting bloc before the Republicans even realize what is happening.

If the Republicans back such an amnesty, maybe their share of the so-called Hispanic vote will go up from about 27% to about 33%, but the Democrats will have gained 10 million or more new voters out of the legalized former illegal alien population group.

If that happens it will be long-term political suicide for the Republicans who will no longer have any chance to win future national elections, when the Democrats politically flip States like Arizona, Florida, and Texas to what California is today politically speaking.

Good Grief, it was just a phone interview. The Left will tell me what to think, the Left will tell me how to interpret the interview. The Left really does think that Americans are stupid and not able to think and decide for themselves.

The Left firmly believes that all Propaganda works, prove them wrong.

I have heard Rubio on Levin and Rush; in both cases Rubio said that without a secure border, he won´t vote for the bill. He also makes it very difficult to attain citizenship with a go to the back of the line order, which could take up to fifteen years. So far, there is nothing but talk.....we shall see if there is a bill at all.

Ye gods. The Left, and that includes CNN, are afraid of Rubio and they despise Rush. Their campaign to rid the world of Conservative Republicans and talk radio is in full attack mode. I heard the show and Rubio was remarkable in expressing his goals and Conservative beliefs. It was refreshing and a delight to hear. He is an impressive man and I´m not falling for the snarky misinformation from the Progrssive media. They want to eliminate any and every Conservative they fear as a ´contender´.

I heard the Rush/Rubio interview. Rush was friendly and respectful. He did not "gush". Perhaps Rush has learned something. namely that a Republican he has opposed and damaged might become the nominee.

After Rubio hung up, Rush was more candid. Though still careful and respectful, he let us know that he is skeptical about Rubio´s plan.

I can´t understand how this interview became "gush" unless a listener is not satisfied unless Rush is on the attack.

I wasn´t fooled by W. He was conservative enough for me. We had 4% unemployment during his administration. I have no doubt that if he were still President, we would be long over the current economic situation just like we recovered from the hit after 9/11. It is really the fault of some conservatives who turned against W that O got elected. When W´s approval ratings fell well below the usual Republican percentage, it made him an easy target for the Democrats. A house divided against itself cannot stand.

I´m with 7, 13, and 25. W was a great president, though I´m still ambivalent about Iraq, and, in my book, Rubio is the only plausible candidate on the horizon, and certainly the most impressive. Cruz appears to be a fantastic senator but is too hard-core to get elected as president.

Happy to hear Rush is liking Rubio, too, not that I´m a dittohead.

Here we go again. "Conservatives" whining about Rubio because they don´t agree 100% on every issue. I guess they forgot that the original signer of Amnesty was Reagan--the same guy that raised taxes (although not as much as he lowered them), signed the first abortion bill as Governor and made any number of deals with Tip O. to get more important stuff passed.

Are we in for another round of whatever the Rubio version of "mittens" and "willard" and the other insightful comments we had to hear about Romney?

Codswallop News Network is at it again. Rush did not "gush".
And anyone who reads his website or listens to the program knows it.

He encourages anyone who stands up to Obama...THAT is what he applauded Rubio for.
He absolutely did not sign on to any form of amnesty whatsoever...and he never will.

Reagan signed the "amnesty" bill because he was assured that the border would be closed, just like the Dems would like everyone to believe they will do it THIS time.
Rush does not believe that will happen because Obama ignores laws he doesn´t agree with. Rush likes Rubio´s passion about conservative principles, but he is very skeptical that immigration reform can/ will happen. I listen to Rush every day. I like hearing his opinions just like I enjoy reading the various opinions in the articles posted on this site. I consider myself more informed about Rush than anyone in the LSM.

That 8 or 11 million has been thrown around since the 80´s. In 2007 it was 20 million

We know it is much higher plus they would be allowed to bring in 5 dependents. 100,000,000 Mexicans.

No to amnesty and no to Marco Rubio!!

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the
