Is Rubio the new Romney?
Hot Air, by Allahpundit

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/14/2014 8:57:31 PM

Team Rubio wants him to be seen as the new Reagan. I think he might be the new Obama. David Harsanyi sees … a different analogy. For me, at least, the promise of Rubio seldom corresponds with the reality. Whenever I listen to him these days, all I hear is Mitt Romney. If he’s really imbued with all these formidable political skills, why do so many of his appearances feel stilted? If he’s one of fresh faces of a new GOP, why are his speeches crammed with platitudes that may have packed a serious punch in 1984? It’s not that

Comments:
Could that comparison hurt him? If he´s allegedly trying to get back is "Tea Party image" that can´t make him happy. I was a huge fan of Rubio when he first came on the scene. He is a dynamic speaker and touted his Tea Party ideology, then came his Gang of Eight and move on immigration. I don´t know if I could ever trust him again. I thought he was different. He behaved just like another Washington politician.

He could very easily have been thought of as the new Reagan if it weren´t for the fact he rolled over when Schumer said ´boo´. Reagan NEVER would have rolled for Schumer or any other politician if it meant caving on his principles. That is the problem with the GOP, too willing to give up their principles to get along with the press.
Rubio is worse than Romney. Romney did not really have any principles to stand firmly on. So he really had nothing to give up. Rubio OTOH, came in to DC with such promise, and the caved when the first breeze started blowing. Not wind mind you. Breeze.

Rubio apparently believed McCain and Graham were going to help set him up with Ayotte to run in 2016. Wonder what he was promised.

It was McCain pushing Rubio to take the lead on the amnesty bill--McCain admitted it was his bill in a Town Hall meeting, but he apparently thought since Rubio came in on the wave of the T.E.A. groups he would have sway with T.E.A. and get McCain´s bill through. Ayotte and Rubio both took the T.E.A. groups support and ´laughed´ when they were out of site.

The more he talks, the less I like him.

He got too far too fast in hopes he would sway the Latino vote. Jeb´s protégé.

It is so predictable what young rising pols will say and do once we know is mentoring them behind the scenes. They are trained to use slippery language so conservatives will think they too are conservative. This is why the poor guy mouths all the tired platitudes.

His voting record should be the only measure we use to determine where he stands. Since he votes 100% of the time in opposition to the Constitution, that´s all we need to know.

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) reportedly told President Barack Obama that there would be a good chance of passing a comprehensive amnesty bill in the next Congress, which the GOP may control. On June 24, when Boehner told Obama there would not be a vote on amnesty legislation this year, he reportedly told him "that he believed there was a good chance a comprehensive bill could pass in the next Congress." According to a National Journal report, Obama, when meeting with pro-amnesty advocates last week to inform them that he would be pressing ahead with executive actions to ease deportations,

HOUSTON, Texas— A leaked internal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) indicates that recent public assertions made by the Administration were at best half-truths regarding the deportations and motivations of the waves of minors illegally entering the United States. The leaked report´s release date is identified as June 3, 2014. The internal report was leaked to Breitbart Texas by a trusted law enforcement source in DHS who wishes to remain unidentified. The report, identified as “De-Classified” and “Law Enforcement Sensitive,” reveals the fact that only 0.1 percent of the Central American minors illegally entering

The city of Los Angeles has joined Orange County, Riverside County, and other cities nationwide in ending the practice of holding illegal immigrant inmates past their scheduled release dates, characterizing the practice as "unconstitutional" under a recent federal court ruling. L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti and police Chief Charlie Beck announced the decision in a joint statement released Monday, according to NBC News. "Until this area of the law is further clarified by the courts, effective immediately the Los Angeles Police Department will no longer honor immigration detainer requests submitted by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE)," the statement read.

The head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated group, called upon fellow Islamists and Arabs to declare holy war against Israel “for the sake of Palestine.” According to a translation provided by the Center for Security Policy: Dr. Ali Al-Qaradaghi – the Secretary General of the International Union of Muslim Scholars – called on the Islamic and Arab peoples to rise up in all parts of the world for the sake of Palestine and Jerusalem since it is the central issue of the nation, and therefore pressure must be placed on the governments and institutions to carry

At least one House Republican thinks Mitt Romney will make another run for the White House in 2016 — and this time, he says the 2012 runner-up will emerge victorious. “I think he actually is gonna run for president. He probably doesn’t want me to say that,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) told host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Monday. Chaffetz also backed the former Massachusetts governor early in the GOP nomination process for 2012. “A hundred times he says he’s not, but Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he’s set out to do. I think he’s proven right on

The White House on Monday insisted most of the thousands of unaccompanied minors flooding across the border will be deported. The firm position came as President Obama was set to travel to Texas, the center of a growing firestorm over the nation’s inability to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the country. Obama is set to hold fundraisers in Dallas and Austin during the two-day trip, but he has no plans to visit the border, where officials have struggled for months to contain a wave of minors seeking refuge in the United States. The president has come under criticism from members of both

The heart of the Obama Administration’s policy to overthrow Assad in Syria has been the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which has been provided by U.S. taxpayer-financed weapons training, small arms, and most recently, TOW anti-tank missiles. This has been done under the pretense that the State Department has carefully selected the FSA as “vetted moderates”, ensuring that those weapons wouldn’t end up in the hands of Al-Qaeda-affiliated groups or the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). Many, including myself, have scoffed at this policy since the State Department has a poor track record in recent decades of identifying “vetted moderates”, expressing

President Barack Obama visits Texas later this week. As will also be the case when he visits Colorado this week, local Democrats will run from being photographed with him. Wendy Davis avoided being seen with the president the last time he visited the state. The president is taking some heat for his decision not to visit the Texas-Mexico border while he is in Texas. That border is in chaos, thanks in no small part to Obama’s lax policies. A leaked DHS memo makes it clear that the Obama administration has slowed down deportations, and that policy is driving much of the

Just making sure that this Major Garrett scoop from late last week doesn’t get lost in the holiday shuffle. Takeaway: Obama’s going big on executive amnesty. Obama told the groups what they had been dying to hear—that he was going to condemn House Republicans for inaction and set the most expansive legal course permissible to beef up border security, slow deportations of noncriminal aliens, and provide legal status to millions of undocumented workers—all by himself… Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit. He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration

Illegal immigrants continue to pour across the southwestern U.S. border, overwhelming both the border security apparatus and the immigration system. The flood of tens of thousands of people, mostly children, from Central America has reached crisis proportions, with temporary camps opened in military bases to house them as authorities decide how to deal with their cases. Given the high level of emotion surrounding the issue -- and accusations by Republicans that his actions spurred the flood -- you´d think President Obama would want to get a personal view of what´s going on when he travels this week to Texas, epicenter of the

CNN reporter Elise Labott questioned Psaki about the United States’ continued support for the Palestinian unity government, saying, “You’ve seen the comments that are coming out of Hamas. And now that the U.S. has, in effect, kind of accepted the fact that Hamas is now in this unity government, you would think that as leader of this unity government, it would be incumbent on President Abbas to rein in or take — you know, try and maintain some kind

Murrieta, California is ground zero in America’s war against illegal aliens who are swarming our border. The Obama regime is not stopping the illegals. They are in fact doing everything they can to facilitate the entry of illegals into this nation. In California, and a lot of other places, real Americans have had enough. (Snip) According to media reports, the Obama regime is going to deploy riot squads to make sure those buses get through. The Regime cannot close off the border but it is going to use riot police to attack real Americans! This is simply beyond belief. Illegal aliens are just that, illegal.

A Fourth of July parade float in Nebraska that showed a dummy standing outside an outhouse labeled "Obama Presidential Library" is drawing cries of racism from local residents and the Nebraska Democratic Party.

The dummy was clad in overalls, standing by a walker next to the outhouse.

At Arizona State University, female students can earn extra credit by agreeing to not shave their armpits and legs for ten weeks. Breanne Fahs, a professor of women and gender studies, has made the special offer to her students as a way to encourage them to challenge social norms. “There’s no better way to learn about societal norms than to violate them and see how people react,” she told ASU News. “There’s really no reason why the choice to shave, or not, should be a big deal.

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels. What is less obvious is this plant’s relentless killer instinct. Look through the

The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article. A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States. The 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States. Experts say that

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the

NORFOLK, Neb. — A float comparing President Barack Obama´s future presidential library to an outhouse has drawn criticism from some after it appeared in the Fourth of July parade in Norfolk. It featured a wooden outhouse labeled "Obama Presidential Library" and a figure in overalls standing outside the structure. "I´m angry and I´m scared," Norfolk resident Glory Kathurima told the Lincoln Journal Star. "The float was not just political; this was absolutely a racial statement."
