I'm starting to think that Marco Rubio really doesn't want to be President at all.
Yesterday, in addition to taking a shot at Rubio over his personal finance train wreck, Donald Trump threw in a jab at Rubio's immigration train wreck while he was at it.
Rubio said weeks ago that he refused to respond to Trump when baited by him. He probably should have stuck with that decision, because his response only highlighted the fact that Rubio is a shameless panderer.
“Rubio was totally in favor of very lax rules, he was part of the ‘Gang of 8,’ “ Trump said Wednesday in New Hampshire. “The Gang of 8 means ‘come on in folks, come on in, no one is going to stop you.”
“Donald was a supporter of amnesty and the DREAM Act, he changed his position on those issues just to run for president."
Take out the "Donald" and insert "Rubio." There. All fixed.
In short, no one trusts Rubio on immigration, and his latest move to the right certainly won't help. Yesterday he also said he would end protections for DREAMers whether or not there's immigration reform, thus deporting thousands who have never lived anywhere else but the U. S.
This may please the hardline anti-immigration crowd, but it's a sure loser in the general election if Rubio ever gets that far.
