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?

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.

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

Marco Rubio is smack in the middle of the current polls for the 2016 presidential primary. But he may be the early frontrunner when it comes to offering a realistic conservative agenda for reforms that address the economic challenges of modern America. And whether or not he pulls the trigger on a White House run, the U.S. senator from Florida is already helping to refashion the GOP once again into the Party of Ideas. In a series of smart domestic-policy speeches this year, Rubio has generally avoided the easy, reflexive response as to what’s gone terribly wrong with the American

California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has recalled embattled former IRS exempt organizations division head Lois Lerner to testify on Capitol Hill Wednesday. Lerner’s apology for improperly scrutinizing and harassing conservative groups applying for non-profit status kicked off the IRS targeting scandal ten months ago, and Lerner has been stonewalling ever since (famously trying to invoke the Fifth Amendment the last time she testified but failing because she made a statement attesting to her innocence first).

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit. (Snip) Saturday’s conference, supported by the NAACP and Fair Housing Center of Metro Detroit, is to feature talks by President Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack´s time in Seattle are

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included. Taking the time to get and spend money on a degree, in short, means you might actually find yourself in a financial hole. The survey may add to parents' doubts about
