Conclusive Proof Obtained: @MarcoRubio Is Just Another Hack [UPDATED]

19 April 2015 @ 00:59

From Breitbart, Matthew Boyle reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Josh Smith]:

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said he believes that President Barack Obama’s first executive amnesty for so-called DREAMers—the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)—is “important” and he won’t reverse it himself if elected president. He delivered these remarks in a Spanish-language interview he gave to Univision’s Jorge Ramos.
“I believe DACA is important. It can’t be terminated from one moment to the next, because there are already people benefiting from it,” Rubio said in Spanish on Ramos’s television program, according to an English translation provided by the media service Grabien. “But yes, it is going to have to end. It can’t be the permanent policy of the United States, and I don’t think that’s what they’re asking either. I think everyone prefers immigration reform.”

Ramos followed up, according to the translation, by asking: “But then, to clarify, you would put an end to DACA once immigration reform is approved, but what would happen, Senator, if there is no immigration reform; would you cancel DACA anyway?”

Rubio answered that DACA will end only when a legislative substitute with the exact same or similar policy prescriptions—a legislative amnesty for illegal alien minors—is implemented. He also said in Spanish that, if elected president, he believes that America cannot deport illegal aliens here in the country right now, and he expects a legislative solution will be implemented that essentially has all the parts of the massively controversial “Gang of Eight” bill that he would pass piece-by-piece.

“Well, at some point it is going to have to end, that is to say, it can’t continue being the permanent policy of the United States,” Rubio said. “I believe, if I become President, it is going to be possible to achieve immigration reform. It is not going to be comprehensive, that is to say, it is not going to all be in one massive bill. We already tried that a few years ago. We’ve seen there isn’t political support for it and I think we’ve wasted a lot of time in this process, when we could have made progress through the steps I’ve advocated.

“Unfortunately, a lot has been spent with that, it’s become an even more controversial subject, more difficult to make progress on, but I’m still saying it’s important to modernize our system and that means improving the way we enforce in the future, modernizing the immigration system so that it isn’t as costly and bureaucratic, and we have to deal with the 12 million human beings who are here and no one, no one is advocating a plan to deport 12 million people, so that topic has to be dealt with as well.”

Rubio’s comment, targeted toward Spanish speakers, that he would keep Obama’s first executive amnesty—enacted outside the purview of Congress—in effect, until passing a legislative substitute with nearly identical policies, puts him at odds with virtually the rest of the Republican field except for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

The mask has been torn off another wolf in Common Sense clothing.

Marco Rubio must be thrown into the elephant graveyard with all of the other faux fighters for freedom and liberty.

We’re in a situation where we really cannot afford to place much trust in any political figures, as we have had to learn again today.

We’re on our own.

UPDATE at 1529…

In the Comments, Adobe Walls is dead solid perfect:

This explains why we’ve never received a credible mea culpa from Rubio on his participation in the gang of eight bill. I was willing to accept an apology from him, something along the lines of ”I fucked up, I was young and foolish and was naive enough to trust Chuck Shumer, and John McCain but I know better now”. It’s disqualifying enough to support the dream act but to allow Obama’s illegal executive orders, any of them, to remain in place, no matter their merits, until they are enshrined in law, is beyond acceptable.

It is, however, well-within the boundaries of abject Hackery.

One thing that has always made me suspicious of this guy is how he became the youngest Speak Of The House in Florida History.  No one anywhere in America — anywhere — rises to such a position without being a pro at playing the Political Game.  And one of the great contributors to the downfall of The Republic have been people who are very good at The Game placing it above their duties and responsibilities as Citizens, Guardians of Freedom and Ordered Liberty, of The American Republic.  Such people are rightly called ‘Hacks’ and they occupy the majority of slots in The Culture Of Corruption.

Another thought occurred to me after I published this post…

What Rubio is engaging in here, by saying things in a foreign language that are different than what he speaks in English, is but a milder and less sinister version of what Muslims say to The West versus what they say to their subjects.  It’s dismaying and, more importantly, offensive.

The Rubio Camp is disputing the translation, see here.

Let me know what you think.  As for me: I smell the odor of damage-control.

    I never trusted him, never. I think we should call him Marco Boobio from now until the end of time. Who’s with me?

    I ain’t buying the translation error story. Apparently he thinks it would be ”unfair” to immediately cancel the green cards and social security numbers already issued. To be realistic that action would spend at least several years in the courts. However that doesn’t stop the next president from rescinding the executive orders and at a minimum let the greencards expire after the two years are up.

    Is anyone surprised at what Boobio said? He’s a Latino politician pandering to Latino voters. The trick for Boobio now is to get conservatives to believe that he didn’t say what he just said.
