Told Ya: Marco Rubio is a Dirtbag – Pulls an Arafat on Amnesty; Rush Limbaugh, Other Conservatives Continue to Defend Him

By Debbie Schlussel

Yesterday, Ann Coulter wrote a column saying that if the GOP pushes the amnesty bill, it deserves to die. But, perhaps, she deserves to die along with it, since she repeatedly pimped us on charlatan Marco Rubio . . . just like she pimped us on Mitt Romney and Chris ChrispieCreme, the HAMAS-lovin’ Governor of New Jersey and Halal Donutistan. She and Michelle Fraudkin and all the others gushed over this guy–clearly only because he’s Hispanic, the “great Hispanic hope”–even though Rubio had a history of fraud, lying, and–frankly–criminal activity (including billing $100K in personal and family expenses on his Florida Republican Party credit card, which, in the rest of America, we call “embezzlement”). They pimped him even though his rhetoric on immigration was the same as it is now: Amnesty! Amnesty!, and–oh, by the way–Amnesty!



When Marco Rubio first went on all the right-wing talk radio shows, a couple of months or so ago, to pimp his immigration amnesty bill, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and others gushed over it. Rubio promised over and over again that he would insist on border security first before his “pathway to citizenship” baloney. And Limbaugh gushed over him, saying we should support this. It was BS then. It’s BS now. And, yet, while Limbaugh continues to call Lindsey Graham–Rubio’s fellow Senate Gangbang of Eight member–“Lindsey Grahamnesty,” there are no such monikers, no criticism of Rubio. Just excuse after excuse after excuse. Gushing after gushing after gushing. And the only distinction between the two is that Rubio is Hispanic, and, so, he gets a pass. This is bigotry, plain and simple. And it’s affirmative action, too. Rubio should be called to the carpet on all of his lying and fraud.

But, no. Over the weekend, Rubio gave an interview in Spanish to a Latino media outlet, in which he explicitly said he was for amnesty first and enforcement later. Then, on Tuesday, he went on FOX News, and said he didn’t say that, when it’s exactly what he said. Just like Yasser Arafat, who said one thing to the Western, English-speaking media, and the exact opposite to the Arab media. So did Rush Limbaugh get upset about this 180-ing lying sack?

Nope. Yesterday, on his nationally syndicated radio show, Limbaugh defended Rubio yet again. He said he spoke with Rubio, and Rubio reminded him that Rubio said on the Limbaugh show that it was necessary to start the “pathway to citizenship” first so that the problem of illegal aliens doesn’t get any bigger. HUUUUUUH?????? Um, how on earth does the problem “not get any bigger,” if you’re NOT enforcing the borders and more illegal aliens come in? This is just BS. And, yet, Limbaugh continues to pimp us on Rubio’s pimping because Rubio is the GOP’s “great Hispanic hope.” No other reason. And it gets worse.

Today, ALL EIGHT of the Senate Gangbang of Eight–including Rubio–voted down an amendment from Senator Charles Grassley that would require border enforcement for six months first and then start the “pathway to citizenship” amnesty. Limbaugh mentioned that on his show today, but conspicuously didn’t call out Rubio on this. It’s nauseating and revealing.

Republicans, conservatives, Tea Partiers, Ann Coulter, Michelle Fraudkin, and the like have embraced this charlatan, Rubio, as the savior of the GOP and America. They pimped him on us when he ran for the Senate. And, now, he’s pimping America’s future in return.

And, yet, they keep making excuses for him. Telling us to bend over again and take another from him.

No thanks. Marco Rubio is NO DIFFERENT than Lindsey Graham. NO DIFFERENT than John McCain. NO DIFFERENT. Except that the other two didn’t embezzle $100,000 and get away with it.

Now all three and the rest of the Establishment Republicans (and Rand Paul–who also supports this crap) are embezzling America’s future. And America won’t ever recover from that.

The Republican party is desperate for minority “cred” because the progressive machine has been so successful at characterizing them as a bunch of old, white, male racists.

DS_ROCKS! on June 13, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    There is truth to it – I’m in my 50s – I’m no longer exactly in the bloom of youth. The truth is the GOP can no longer win a national election with the white vote alone. Ronald Reagan and the first George Bush lived in a vastly different America! They couldn’t win today. The Democrats have the political market cornered on every other demographic group – that’s why they easily win elections today. In reaction to that, the conservative default mode is run up the white flag. I don’t see things brightening any time soon.

    NF: Not necessarily true. While you are right that the White population keeps declining, even if 70% of Hispanics had voted for Romney, he still would have lost. And more White voters stayed home compared with the McCain-Obama contest. If all the Whites who stayed home this time (but voted for McCain) had voted for Romney, Romney would have won. DS

    NormanF on June 13, 2013 at 4:35 pm

      Debbie –

      If you as you point out, if Romney had gotten 70% of the Hispanic vote, he still would have lost, would be a good argument against amnesty! Sadly, the GOP establishment has drawn exactly the opposite lesson from what that shows – it thinks it needs to reach out to Hispanics to win – which is why it pimps Rubio and is on board the amnesty bandwagon. I was one of those white voters who stayed home last year b/c I couldn’t abide Romney and his lack of principles. As for the white voter question, in the 1970s and 80s, whites were around 84-85% of the population. Today, its 72% and shrinking and most of these are older voters. California is already a minority-majority state and thanks to demographic shifts once solid Republican states like Virginia are now Purple and will turn Blue in a decade. The political math doesn’t favor the GOP and it definitely wont should amnesty become law.

      NormanF on June 13, 2013 at 4:56 pm

The white share of the population keeps declining and the GOP establishment has decided they might as well try to get the Hispanics on board a la amnesty.

Except none of those new voters will ever vote for it! Instead of securing our borders, the GOP wants to transform America’s demographics. We used to call that “playing Russian roulette.” And we know exactly what is going to happen – the GOP will die.

A party that doesn’t stand up for the country and traditional American values deserves to go the way of the Whigs. Which will happen soon enough once amnesty is passed.

NormanF on June 13, 2013 at 4:30 pm

I never did trust Marco Rubio from the start….something about him had hinky written all over it. I trust him even less now….

Charged $100K of personal stuff on his “Branch-Floridian” Republican Party Card? I remember the days where if you made a $10 error on your travel voucher they’d send OIG or OPR climbing up your a** looking to fire you or get time off…


IceNoMore on June 13, 2013 at 5:02 pm

I’m really proud of the peeps who have seen through this shyster Rubio from the beginning. DS being the 1st one I know of (and most intelligent). I’m pointing that out because I listen to some peeps who are nowhere near as smart as DS is but the ones who also called creepy Rubio out early on his sliminess I appreciate…even if they are not the most wise or best (but still valuable in some small variables).

I thought of Arafat, too, when I heard of his little bi-lingual trickery. What a goose he is!

I want to hi-light two important factors regarding this…

1) The Donks are HUGELY successful in their treacherous trickery in painting the GOP as evil and heartless. As I have said before…those effers (Republicans) are too cowardly and cowed to be evil and as hard-hearted as they are (sadly) convincingly but UNTRUTHFULLY portrayed. It annoys me immensely to see that meme still survive. I remember it well when I was a Liberal. I really believed it, too. I had no clue it was a canny construct. That meme must be destroyed for the GOP to move forward. Too bad it’s more huge and more evil (in the fairy tale!) than EVER. It’s quite the pet hate for me!

2) The truth is Latinos don’t vote GOP because they don’t want too. A lot has to do with #1 and many Latinos come from Commie SA sh**-holes so why would they wanna support a Constitutional Republic that became great the hard way? Also, there is a false meme on Latinos, too, but I believe most pretend to believe it and see Latinos (in general) as truth dictates…they are NOT all Valedictorians, hugely Catholic and religious and “family oriented”. Maybe the last one but not in the good, old American way. Believe me, they like to live together like clowns in circus cars but that is unsavory and untenable to most of us. And they love having babies out of wedlock, too. I’m half Mexicano and I am NOT afraid to say that. I reject and hate that aspect of them and am NOT shy about saying so.

The GOP is dying. It’s terrible. What treacherous times lay ahead for us. The GOP participated in their own demise. It’s horrible to see. How the Libtards must laugh and laugh.

Skunky on June 13, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    Excellent summation Skunky. Rubio is slimey and repugs like Coulter and hannity fell for it.

    Ken b on June 13, 2013 at 6:20 pm

The minorities and lower income whites are supporting Democrats mainly because of the freebies.
90% of them couldn’t give you the name of their Governor.
They don’t care about politics, they don’t know anything about politics.
All they know is Democrats give them freebies, free rent, free food, free childcare, etc, etc.
But anybody with the IQ above a blade of grass knows we are broke and the the freebie train is coming off the tracks real soon.
What happens when the welfare checks stop and the SNAP cards have no available balance left, well, that’s anybodies guess.
When the massive hordes of welfare bums don’t get their freebies all hell could break loose.
Include in that all the government workers, social security recipients and the people that live off of the government contracts no longer getting paid.

Still I don’t see the ‘logic’ of the Republicans that seems to be “We know we are dying, so the solution is to commit suicide”.

Steve G on June 13, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    illegal aliens are a net deficient of over 100,000 per family 8.00 jobs do not provide any improvement to this country ,I spanish mexicans speak mexican its what you speak when you have a bad third grade education, we are importing the worse and expecting something good out of it

    tony on June 14, 2013 at 9:25 pm

What else to expect from tea party crackpots who laud treason.

    Laura, climb back in your spaceship and fly back to Earth; the weather is nice down here.

    waynesteapartyworld on June 14, 2013 at 2:27 am

The problem with the GOP is the democrats have flooded them with plenty of RINO blood. Republicans consistently vote for their candidate and if he wins they basically win either way. I give Florida’s Governor this passed presidential election. Both Bushs’ Senator McCain vs. Obama, Speaker of the House John Boehner and many more.
Rubio lost me when he laid down with someone whom I met and know personally as an a**hole Chucky Schumer. A despicable lifeform. Whenever he promotes a law its automatically against the people and if Rubio agrees with Schumer then he’s a RINO too.

MANGOG on June 13, 2013 at 6:01 pm

I apologize for any typos. I currently don’t have access to my computer and IM on my tablet. I’ve said before that Rubio was a phoney baloney scumbag. I went slumming yesterday and listened to loser hannity. For the whole half hour was pathetic. Rubio tried to back track what he said on univision. This supposed hispanic savior for the republican party lied his ass off and Sean fell for his BS. Debbie is right the only reason that this jerk gets a pass is because of his race. Freaking repugs will never learn.

Ken b on June 13, 2013 at 6:04 pm

    Ken B., it always cracks me up when Savage* calls Vannity “Hey Abbott” or alludes to him (mockingly) as Bud Abbott. I get it and for some reason it just really cracks me up.

    *It’s hard to find really good talk-shows these days. I just recently started listening to Savage again via a free podcast (one used to have to pay for the old ones) and I mostly listen now for laughs in lieu of hardcore info (his schtick is the same and his narcissism grates me…). His ‘Abbott’ reference to Vannity is VERY funny to me. LOL!

    Skunky on June 13, 2013 at 7:13 pm

And yet, as I checked this article, an ad for Boob-io’s new autobiography, An American[sic] Son, is listed amongst Debbie’s sponsors. Wonder why.

CP: I do not choose or see all of the ads on this site as servers serve up different ads to each reader. Pls send me the link for the site of the ad and I will ban it. Do you really think I would promote Boob-io (An ANTI-AMERICAN Son)? Come on . . . . DS

ConcernedPatriot on June 13, 2013 at 6:15 pm

Well, it should pacify the stooges of American conservatism now that Rubio has stated that he will not support an amnesty bill if there is any kind of “special privilege” given to gays. Ohhh, he’s soooo tough on that traditional American thing. Such a bastion of virtue and values. The GOP now has their new messiah.

Frankly, who gives a flying fuck what special privileges are given to a group of special privileged people who shouldn’t even be here? Every Democrat, Republican and Libertarian can go eat a big bag of shit. They do nothing but screw Americans over to support their one-world agendas. Charlatans every single one of them. I’m a Nationalist. Don’t like it? Goo. Go fuck your mother.

Celestial Time on June 13, 2013 at 6:36 pm

I called 202-225-3121 (U.S. Capitol switchboard) today- Rubio, Nelson, Boehner, Juan McCain and Ted Cruz. Every Senator’s, and Boehner’s, office’s used voicemail. However, Cruz was the ONLY voicemail which had his voice on it. BFD right? It is/was; Cruz didn’t have an intern, or mid/senior staffer running interference.
Rubio is Mel Martinez’s stepson. Same bullShiite/mierda Harris, Martinez, Shays, McCain and the other gang of ocho’s tried pulling this crap in ’05, ’06, and ’07. This bill is WORSE than the others; it’s ALL of them combined.

Sick_Boy on June 13, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    I’m so worked up, I forgot to post that I called Cruz (R) Texas to voice my support of his standing up to the Republicrat establishment.
    2:1 Boehner cut a deal with Amnasty because of his alleged involvement/knowledge of possible gun running in Libya and horrific death of Amb. Stevens., and three others. It’s a slash and burn sale with the Constitution.
    Fast and Furious gun running, Obama-Care, Secret Service (hookers), GM bailout, EPA harrassment, Benghazi murders and gun running, IRS civil rights violations, DoD coming-out party and “rise” in “sexual harrassment,” DHS “preparedness” with IED hardened vehicles, billions of round of .223 and hollow points [illegal for use internationally], Ft. Hood “workplace” violence, NSA data capture on citizens, and fricken removal of 100 watt incandescent(sp?) light bulbs hmm, anymore?…hmm…oh yeah, amnesty for illegals.
    and the ever creeping “hate speech” deal [re: OIC and “blasphemy laws].
    I hear the hippy cries of “tear it all down man! tear it all down…”
    Never trust a hippy.

    Sick_Boy on June 13, 2013 at 7:33 pm

I agree with those of you who are appalled with Rubio’s tactics but disagree with other opinions espoused here. First, I come from a different perspective. I’m a registered Democrat being lured to Conservatism because the Right tends to be more pro-Israel. I tend to vote Democratic, though, because, unlike Debbie, I’m staunchly pro-Choice. If Conservatives would stay out of Americans’ bedrooms, I can assure you they’d win a lot more votes. While against theimmigration bill (my husband’s a naturalized citizen who took the time/trouble to go through the proper channels), I have nothing against Mexicans; rather, I’m petrified of a flood of Muslims a la the Tsarnaevs becoming legal U.S. citizens. Thus, I’m stymied by the plethora of anti-Mexican comments here. Am I missing something?

One last thing: Just as there are some rotten Republicans, all Dems aren’t bad. Up-and-comer Cory Booker, the Dem running for NJ’s Senate seat, is a friend to Israel and has been critical of Obama, as well as working miracles as mayor of Newark.

Elana Starr on June 13, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    ES, you must not know the truth about Mexico and Mexicans if you’re “stymied”.

    Have you any idea how strongly Mexico guards it’s SOUTHERN border? It’s the polar OPPOSITE of how it un-guards it’s horrible NORTHERN border. Go ask Guatemalans how they feel about Mexico and their SOUTHERN border. And how they are treated if they enter ILLEGALLY.

    Do you have any idea of how much Mexico will gain economically if this amnesty tragedy goes thru’? The 2nd biggest (financial) gains of Mexico is American money being imported by the non-loyal and anti-USA leeches who come here…back into the crappy, narco state they love. If this goes thru Mexico will change their National Anthem to “We’re In The Money” or change their President’s name to a Chinese name…Cha-Ching!

    The Mexicans who come here are NOT their best and brightest. By a country mile!

    Do you know about the brutality of the drug cartels of sh** box Mexico? Google-image the photo of the line of dead bodies placed in/propped up in lawn chairs to scare off people. THAT is what Mexico means to me. And I am half Mexican!

    Facts will get you further than PC hand-wringing. Wake up.

    Skunky on June 13, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    “anti-mexican” opinions?
    You mean like the children walking the hallowed halls at the Capitol with t-shirts that say, “I’m Irish and I am illegal”? …and you don’t vote “conservative” because you are Pro-Choice? What a bunch of baloney; I am “pro-choice” and choose life…(do you HONESTLY think/believe abortion will EVER be abolished…ever??)
    “Stay out of the bedroom”?
    …stay out of my refrigerator, washer-dryer, healthcare, my DNA biometrics, gas tank, my internet surfing habits, cellular communications,and my free expression(s) etc. Leave all of us alone to make our own CHOICES. “Pro-Choice” my bum.
    I think you don’t vote “conservative” because if you did, your ENTIRE life will be proved a lie.

    Sick_Boy on June 13, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    ” I’m staunchly pro-Choice. If Conservatives would stay out of Americans’ bedrooms, I can assure you they’d win a lot more votes.” Elana Starr on June 13, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    Really Elena? There’s Republicans hanging around in your bedroom? Kinky!

    Seriously, is that all that really matters to you and your fellow female liberals? With the whole country going to hell in a hand-basket the right to kill your unborn babies is priority number one?
    …Hey, how about:
    “If Liberals would just stay the F*** out of Americans LIVES I can assure you they might earn some of OUR votes!”

    P.S. @ – ‘Matt on June 13, 2013 at 8:18 pm’ –
    Ditto! Nail on the head. I couldn’t agree more.

    theShadow on June 13, 2013 at 9:10 pm

      To the Shadow, my name is Elana. Please get my name right and then I’ll be happy to listen to what you have to say.

      Dina k., I’m not going to turn this into a screed about abortion. You won’t change my mind and I won’t change yours. However, we both know that late-term abortions are the exception, not the rule, and they’re often done only because the fetus isn’t viable. I care only about what a couple has to go through when they are desperate to have a child but the woman is pregnant with a fetus that isn’t viable.

      Elana Starr on June 18, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Pro-choice? I know that most people who say they r pro-choice truly believe that abortion is limited to the very early time when the fetus is a non-recognizable collection of cells. However, when the Democrats took over Congress in 2007, they soon after removed late-term abortion as a federal ban. The ban had applied to aborting babies who were fully formed for reasons having nothing to do with life or death reasons for the mother. It’s unconscionable to murder a fully formed baby. U don’t vacuum them out like dust particles. They have to be chopped up or pulled out partially and then actually murdered. They were alive before that point. if u do more research on gestational dev’t and abortion techniques, your solid pro-choice stand may change. Thank you for posting.

    Dina k. on June 14, 2013 at 9:46 am

    Thanks for coming to this site, Elana. It seems like you’re in a tough situation. You’re for a strong Israel and you’re proud of your Jewish heritage, but you’re uncomfortable with even the slightest hint of what you consider “racism.” And despite the fact that you like what Debbie has to say, you sense there is an “anti-Mexican sentiment” on this site. Where is Liebowitz and other politicians like him when you need them—strong proponents of progressive reform and inclusion in America and yet also a hawk when it comes to Israel?

    Let me share some thoughts with you. Suppose that because you stated you were for a strong Israel, someone were to call you a racist. Suppose they accused you of being anti-Palestinian simply because you believe in a strong Israel. Your answer might be, “No, I’m not anti-Palestinian. I just think Israel needs to stand up for itself. It can’t be soft in dealing with Palestinians because Palestinians have been taking advantage of the situation, and if Israel doesn’t defend itself, it’s liable to collapse.”

    That explanation would probably not convince a liberal. They would insist you secretly hated Palestinians no matter how much you protested to the contrary, and that racism was your secret motive for your pro-Israel stance.

    Conservatives in general–and that includes those at this site–don’t hate Mexicans as individuals. But many of us are worried about America as a viable country the same way you’re worried about Israel. I have Hispanic friends—good friends–and Skunky is half-Mexican as she tells us. It’s not personal. That doesn’t mean we conservatives at this site and around the country don’t worry about what might suddenly happen if we suddenly legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Think about what would happen to Israel if 12 million new Palestinians were suddenly added as voters and citizens in one dramatic coup, many of them becoming automatic welfare dependents, and you might begin to understand our concerns. But most of all, think about how much it grates on you to be called a “racist” when you just believe in standing up for a strong Israel. (And, by the way, if you don’t see that a majority of liberals would probably condemn you as a hateful bigot for standing up for a strong Israel, I think you’re missing something.)

    Burke on June 16, 2013 at 10:02 am

      Sorry I haven’t responded to the rebuttals to my posts. I’m not a wimp; I’ve had serious computer issues. First, I thank the person who provided the quickie lesson on Mexican issues. It’s not something I know much about, and I’m smart enough — like Debbie, I’m in Mensa — to admit when I don’t know something. I will have to do research into that area when I have the time. As for being pro-choice, I stick to my guns. I’ve lived in Canada, where there is a conservative government which ignores the issue, and everyone I came into contact with there was relieved. Because Supreme Court appointments are for life, I feel it IS a key criterion in deciding for whom to vote for president. Being pro-Choice is part of my religious prerogative as a Conservative Jew.(Even our rabbi has marched on the picket lines.) As for the issue posited by Burke vis a vis Palestinians — even though, like Debbie, I grew up in Detroit, surrounded by Arabs — if I looked into my heart, I’d have to say, yeah, I am a racist. As I already alluded, I’m moving toward political Conservatism because I don’t want any more practicing Muslims moving here or sharia law taking over. But again, I think it’s wrong to castigate Democrats when there are plenty of Republicans who are also responsible for this morass.

      Elana Starr on June 18, 2013 at 7:37 pm

If the Republicans roll over and play dead on this issue, I will not bother to vote for them in the 2016 election. Period. No money, no votes, no support, etc.

As a conservative, I am tired of the Republican Party taking me for granted and figuratively storing me in the attic like someone’s crazy aunt.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 13, 2013 at 7:22 pm


    F*ck that. With God as my witness, I will vote a straight Democrat ticket if the amnesty bill passes with GOP support. I will be hoping that the GOP is swept away for all time in a colossal tidal wave – preferably on the day after the amnesty (but more likely in the election immediately following).

    St atusM onkKey on June 15, 2013 at 4:04 am

      Destroying the GOP to make room for a new party might not be a bad idea. Sometimes it seems the Repugnicants get in the way more than the Demonicrats.

      theShadow on June 15, 2013 at 7:23 pm

If Rube’s plan is so great, then why must he continue to provide falsehood truth? At the end of the day, he is for his people. (Mexicans or any one with a Spanish sur name) It took you dolts on this website to figure this out only after Debbie blogged about it. As far as the other fake talk show hosts are concerned, they are in it for themselves. They make in excess of 200 mil. per year. Do you really think they give a rats ass about anyone but themselves? They effectively have made their money and to hell with everybody else. It has been that way since the beginning of time. It is too late to try to convince the masses that this legislation is wrong on so many accounts because the fix is already in at this point.

BTW, Hispanics are not Latin. Latin people are from Italian descent.

Everyone in this forum bitches and moans; but do any of the people here actually vote? Has anyone written to their representatives or organized to raise money so that you could send lobbyists to Washington to get laws passed in our interest? Have any persons here given any meaningful political contributions?

The only thing I can tell the concerned Americans would be to buy your property, preferably north of the US/Canadian border, and start prepping by stock piling food, shelter, high powered rifle rounds, electronic equipment, water, etc. For those of you that are weak, and live in urban areas, well put it to you this way, when SHTF in this country, then only the strong will survive.

AR on June 13, 2013 at 7:42 pm

Amnesty and huge increase in guest workers is a gift to big business and big labor. Rubio wants all that corporate cash for his run in 2016. He certainly won’t get it from small donors. This is about Rubio’s personal ambition.

Adam on June 13, 2013 at 8:00 pm

Anybody who didn’t see this coming from the start is simply naive. What I’ve never understood, though, is why illegal immigration is OUR problem. If someone is here illegally, that should be THEIR problem to fix, not ours. The entire issue is backwards.

And I have a really hard time with the whole “hard-working, natural conservative, family values, want to be Americans” tripe the GOP constantly touts. I live in an area (Arlington, VA) with a ton of illegals – everywhere you look. And actually, no, they don’t work harder than anyone else. And no, they are not “natural conservatives”; they vote for the Left because they think gov’t happiness comes from government largesse (a point Limbaugh himself has made). And no, they aren’t all that into family values; they’re into teenage motherhood and illegitimate kids because that’s the ticket to staying in this country. And no, they aren’t dying to be Americans, which is why I hear Spanish every f’ng place I go out of the mouths of their 2, 3, and 4 year old bastard children. If they wanted to be Americans, they’d be teaching their kids English.

Matt on June 13, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Matty, you left out well intentioned urban youths that are just here to work, i.e., Norenos, Surenos, MS-13, the 18th Street Gang, Latin Kings and on and on and on and the fact that illegals occupy 30% of prisons, every sign in Home depot aint in English and every f@#$%%G business or government entity you call, it says press # for English. Did I mention that they always proudly display the Mexican flag or that they do not abide by laws in the first place, driving under the influence and killing innocent people when they wreck their uninsured car, Mexican only education in American public schools, and that they populate like vermin. BTW, don’t go to a restaurant where the cook is Mexican because they do not wash their hands after they S@#t.

In the world of marketing, when a company wants to compete with another company and they develop a copy-cat product to try to capture marketing share, without actually developing a competitive edge–that’s called a “Me-Too Product.” Me-Too products, if they survive in the marketplace, usually only do so because they are a somewhat cheaper alternative to the main market-leading product. The Republican Party has become the Me-Too product of the political world. There’s Obama from the Democrats and Obama-light offered by the Republicans, if even that distinction applies.

In the world of marketing and business, when a company truly wants to compete and succeed in overtaking a market, the company must develop a competitive edge. Ideally, the strategy is to make the company’s product a must-have one that will bring satisfaction to the consumer on a variety of levels–economically, psychologically, and socially. The Republican Party, which originally had so many representatives coming from the business world, surely know this strategy and know that it is the only way to succeed in today’s competitive marketplace. But it seems as though they flunked Marketing 101.

Only about 15 Republicans voted down Rubio’s immigration bill. McCain, one of the so-called leaders of the Republican Party has become so Me-Too of late that he almost outcopies the original Democratic ideology he seeks to imitate.

Have the Republicans even attempted to promote their much stronger, believable, and market-edge proven members–such as Ted Cruz of Texas, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, or Mike Lee of Utah? Nope.

But the Me-Too strategy is actually better than what the Republican Party is really doing. A Me-Too strategy at least captures SOME market share. The Republican version of the strategy is actually worse, as their “leading” members become merely “Straw-men.” In short, they’re there to lose, and they’re not even competing on a Me-Too level. Thus, the Republicans pitted Romney, who implemented “Romneycare” (Obama-light) against Obama, who implemented Obamacare (Obama-regular). When given such a Hobson Choice, Americans will go with the one they perceive to be the “original.”

    This proves my point of dolts that post on this site. We are facing the destruction of Western civilization and this ass wipe is talking about teeth.

      Wasssamatta-U?..got no sense of humor? Even Debbie makes fun of teeth, especially when they’re British.
      And humor in the face of destruction? Maybe you should take that up with the Yiddish Jews.
      Or Mel Brooks.

Is Rush Limbaugh, back on Oxycodone his thinking is very impaired. Just asking if reform is passed will employers than have the Americans train the newly amnstey illegal after their training is complete.Next the company lays off the Americans and keeps the newly amnesty illegal.This way the companies can get around having to provide obamacare ?

Steve on June 13, 2013 at 9:46 pm

If the discussion that has ensued here isn’t evidence of Demmicans and Republicrats, then nothing is. Proof positive that there is an unseen chaos taking place in this country. Lots of good points being made here, with Skunky making a whole bunch. As for what will happen when the SNAP cards reach a zero balance, well, that’s when the unseen chaos will become “every man’s hand against his neighbor,” and DHS is going to send out those light armored tanks and start firing those hollow point rounds.

As for voting, why bother? Seriously. There IS no other way to save the country except for it to descend in to total chaos, because there IS NO ONE, and certainly no GROUP of politicians with the collective will or wherewithal to make it happen.

Skunky, Savage calls Hannity Lou Costello, not Bud Abbott. “Hey, Abbott” was what Costello used to say whenever he needed help, like when something was getting out of control, or there was a ghost in the closet, etc. Hannity has indeed begun to look like Lou Costello over the past few years, and with his tight little grin, hair style and weight gain, Savage is right in that observation. Been listening to him again for the past six months or so, that’s how I know it’s Costello. Plus, Hannity looks nothing like Bud Abbott, totally different appearance.

of how anyone
evaluates any proposal

regardless of amnesty

regardless of making these people
indentured servants to eventually
achieve citizenship

regardless of
how easy or
how hard or
how draconian
this will be

none of it means anything
until the border is secure

until there are no leaks anywhere
in the southern border

it’s the

no other considerations

Remember how everyone swooned over his speech at the GOP convention? I wonder if anyone posting here really thought it was that good. The only measure of “good” I gave it was that Rubio’s speech took ten minutes to put me to sleep, whereas Romney’s took only five.

CornCoLeo on June 13, 2013 at 10:27 pm

Alfredo, I don’t get this comparison between Hannity and Abbott or Costello. Abbott and Costello were one of the great comedy teams of all time and were wonderful entertainers. I am sure that Hannity has some other talent or sorts because he is on TV and radio, but I have been unable to identify what that talent–if indeed it does exist–may actually be, on those occasional times when I happen to watch or hear him.

Ralph Adamo on June 13, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    Ralph, you are of course correct about “Abbott & Costello”. I love to watch them. Since I love them, when Savage first said it it just struck me as so funny…’cuz I knew what he was alluding to with the ‘look’ (and voice) mocking Vannity. It just cracks me up.

    Alfredo, I think I must have mixed them up! Sorry. I could have sworn Lou Costello was the “skinny guy” but I think I mixed ’em up. Been a long time since I last watched ’em. Thanks for letting me know the good guts.

    And it does just crack me up. It’s one of those things that amuse me so. 😀

    Skunky on June 13, 2013 at 10:46 pm

Ralph, I don’t compare him to Lou Costello. Abbott and Costello were in my opinion in a tie with two other teams as greatest comedy teams of all-time. Mike Savage correctly says that Sean Hannity has begun to LOOK like Costello, that’s ALL. JUST Savage’s comment on the physical resemblance. Savage has nothing against Lou Costello, but he doesn’t like Hannity, and you have to admit, Costello was a bit rotund. And for a guy who was in pretty good shape until recently, Hannity has become a bit rotund. Add a couple other physical features, and he suggests Lou Costello, that’s all. Savage said it, hates Hannity, doesn’t hate Lou Costello, and I agree with the physical resemblance, that’s all.

There’s nothing to see here, move on, it’s just Mike Savage’s little dig, that’s all. All these guys throw digs at each other. Mark Levin, a great friend of Hannity’s, has openly exclaimed regarding Savage on his own show, that he’d better not run in to him in the street. Savage runs down everybody, Levin doesn’t do much, but occasionally does throw a dig at Savage, Rush stays above the fray, never calls out anyone, but I’m sure he’s got his opinions, especially since he and Mark Levin are friends. Nothing more than that.

Repeat, I LOVE Abbott and Costello, BIG fan here.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 13, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Thanks Alfredo and Skunky For clarifying the nature of the comparison. It’s a context thing, and I get it. And for the record, Some of my other favorite comedy teams include Martin and Lewis, George and Gracie, Crosby and Hope, Laurel and Hardy, The Smothers Brothers, And Rowan and Martin. Some also include such groups as the Three Stooges, The Marx brothers, And Monty Python As part of these greatest comedy team lists. But for me, a comedy team only consists of two Performers: One usually playing the so-called straightman and the other playing the comic foil. But I digress. Comedy is a great antidote to today’s news.

    Ralph Adamo on June 14, 2013 at 2:50 am

Speaking of Marco Rubio, I’ve heard him go through the Cuban American script of his parents lives and coming to the U.S. during the early Castro years, etc., a number of times. I also found out about the embezzlement a few years ago, believe it was mentioned by someone Bob Grant interviewed. As Mark Levin says so frequently, and so many others also note, the system is broken.

I don’t condone anarchy, but after voting for Dubya in 2000, in the hopes that His Slickness’ vice president wouldn’t assume the office of the presidency, I cannot see where we go from here. Every “Republican” that emerges either eventually proves him or herself to be a phony, liability, or in the case of anyone who might not be such, swimming hopelessly upstream.

Dubya was a liability in many ways, many Tea Party candidates got to Washington, immediately started voting against their stated “principles,” and Rubio is just another propped up Republican golden boy.

Unless Debbie Schlussel has presidential aspirations, and knows of a worthwhile running mate, I really don’t see any human hope. Mike Savage has been lamenting everything that’s going on, and ended his show tonight by saying he still thinks that something on the order of an Act of God will happen to bring down The Teleprompter-In-Chief and expose the Demmicans for who they really are.

How??!?!!!?? And to what end? The ONLY act of God LEFT to happen is The Second Coming of Jesus Christ. And THAT will only happen after The Great Tribulation, meaning America gets KO’d in the First Round. In the meantime, the only choice for people like us here, minus the trolls and shitheads, but INCLUSIVE of the know it all oracles (LOL!!!) is to keep trying. The Bible says never tire of doing what is right. Of course!!! But what is right will NOT be voting for yet ANOTHER mealy mouthed fraud like Rubio in 2016.

Not that there ever will be another real presidential election in “this once great republic.”

Get ready to be fighting your neighbor for the last can of Chef Boy-Ar-Dee at the corner store. God help us all. I’m almost in tears, because I remember the hopes and dreams I had as a child half a century ago. In the wake of JFK’s assassination, I still never pictured this.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 13, 2013 at 11:23 pm

The new name for illegal aliens is undocumented democrats.

Rob Hermann on June 14, 2013 at 12:20 am

Debbie, you are right about Rubio but are behind-the-times as regards the Tea Party support for him. Yep, we heard him give some great conservative speeches and were wowed initially(during Senate Primary) and thought we could believe him, esp since he’s Cuban (a reliably conservative group). Although we were played for suckers early on, this is the ‘information age’ and the TP worm turned a couple of weeks ago… Hope it’s not too late. Cruz is our guy now, so hoping no more stabs in the back and that we still have a country until ’14, when hopefully sending more TP conservatives to the fetid cesshole of D.C…

waynesteapartyworld on June 14, 2013 at 2:18 am

But, perhaps, she deserves to die along with it, since she repeatedly pimped us on charlatan Marco Rubio . . . just like she pimped us on Mitt Romney and Chris ChrispieCreme, the HAMAS-lovin’ Governor of New Jersey and Halal Donutistan.

We all make mistakes. That’s why they put erasers on the ends of pencils.

Miranda Rose Smith on June 14, 2013 at 2:25 am

Yes Debs, you called it on Rubio.
But it wouldn’t have made any damn difference because they were going to make a “bi-partisan” deal one way or the other.
This is what happens when you lose an election to a way left president.
Also Levin never gushed over his plan. In fact he expressed reservations from the beginning. So you’re flat out wrong there. Not that you care.

So long America.

Zareus on June 14, 2013 at 3:45 am

It might have been reported that way but it wasn’t.
The Levin interview with Rubio was friendly because they have a good relationship but Levin was very hesitant on the plan from the get go
and said so.
On closer examination he slammed it.
That was shortly after is was first proposed by Rubio.
Rubio is an operator. You called it but that doesn’t mean everybody who has any kind of association with him gets lumped in the same bag as far as I’m concerned.

As I said, not that you care but some do.

You don’t go around trashing people if you don’t fully understand their position or can’t be bothered to understand it.

Zareus on June 14, 2013 at 3:56 am

I saw Rubio for what he is when he first opened his mouth. He is a glossy, pretty showman and nothing more. Also, he insisted on Limbaugh’s show a few months ago that unless border security was the first and number one priority, he wouldn’t support it. I heard him say it, too. Of course I never supported his plan even with so-called security first, bc I don’t believe on rewarding criminals. Period.

Dina k. on June 14, 2013 at 9:29 am

Levin has been blasting this amnesty bill and its lack of border security first. Yes, he has been a Rubio supporter, but has called for a Levin surge to try to shoot this down. He had Michelle Bachmann on trying to raise support for her rally.

Anthony on June 14, 2013 at 9:52 am

Never trust a guy with a comb-over.

Janne on June 14, 2013 at 11:20 am

It is true that Mark Levin turned his back on the plan a while ago, and has been expressing reservations. So has Rush. But read Debbie’s headline again. She alluded to the fact that they continue to defend HIM, and leave Rubio’s name out of their criticisms. Since Rubio is spearheading this on the conservative side, he does deserve their criticism, and that’s what Debbie was getting at, their reluctance to criticize him personally. When you discover a hypocrite, you should say so. They do it with others, why not him?

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 14, 2013 at 12:51 pm

“When Marco Rubio first went on all the right-wing talk radio shows, a couple of months or so ago, to pimp his immigration amnesty bill, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and others gushed over it.”

As Debbie says Alfredo – R.I.F (Reading is Fundamental).

Zareus on June 14, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    RIGHT, EXACTLY!!! “A couple months or so ago,” but Debbie’s article is CURRENT, and is in regard to the fact that as of NOW, they are still refusing to criticize him. That was THEN, and THIS is NOW!!!

    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 14, 2013 at 9:35 pm

Hello Debbie,

I love your razor-sharp “take” on all things; as well I enjoy Rush, Coulter, Levin, and many pundits from Wash Times, Breitbart, other conservative outlets which I cherish and spend time on [after the 2010 elections could not watch one more vile television reality or ginned up violence-laden plot, and all the unholy Hollywood messaging meant to clutter our cultural brains, and finally and especially all agenda-driven news…all] via the internet.

So here we are. Isn’t it fascinating how utterly skittish these R/pundit’s are when it comes to throwing down for good cause Rubio for his current ruse/nonsense, etc. Amazing that he would TURN like this and that those in support of him are not now calling him to task — AMAZING!!!

We live in a very cynical era and I understand how public figures are forced to mince their words for their own protection. BUT…in this case…and when 3-4 weeks ago Rubio was on Rush’s show and laid out his thinking re: immigration [and it wasn’t what he has just done this week!!!]— I really had hoped that Rush and even Mark Levin could have simply pointed out to him his “NAIVETE” and lack of experience in Washington and how they all, these totally out-of-touch pols there, operate.

The time for folks to use their experience, intellect and a degree of “cohones” to unflaggingly educate Rubio in this case, for example, is NOW and critical. All the more reason that you/your take on this important issue is like a breath of fresh air: you are never too bold for what needs to be said/exposed — and I appreciate you for this, now and always.

It is a sad day when the likes of John Boehner [from my neighborhood!] has become the Obama-loving rube and total disappointment he is!

{Ha…I project that Chris Christie will run for Pres as a Democrat!} Unbelievable the state of our affairs!

Depressed…even thinking about it; and extremely tired of always having to fight and defend against this current administration and their antics. Really? we are going to arm Al-Qaeda [the rebel faction in Syria] against Assad? This world is UPSIDE DOWN!

THANKS for being you and being here for us.

S: Glad you like my work. But sad to hear you waste your time on Breitfraud, which publishes falsity (including making up baloney to cover Sean Hannity’s exposed ass for his Freedom Concert scams) and doesn’t fact check at all. Its “editor,” Joel Pollak is a huge fan of Nelson Mandela, because his wife is Black and her mother worked for him. A frequent Breitfraud “columnist” is Jeff Dunetz, who exposed himself online, posting and sending out a masturbation video, and patronized and rated prostitutes. And, yet, Breitfraud published his columns against Anthony Weiner exposing himself. Please do not rely on that site for info, as the mainstream media lies less than they do and is far mor accurate. You cannot trust anything on that site. I’m not sure why you say Rubio “turned,” as he always fudged on this issue and implied he was for amnesty when he ran for the U.S. Senate. By the way, we do not need to “educate” Rubio. He’s educated on this, but doesn’t care. DS

suzel on June 14, 2013 at 4:20 pm

Unfortunately Debbie’s a lone beacon of honesty in a sea of political depravity and hypocrisy.

Zareus on June 14, 2013 at 6:47 pm

And Jeb came out for this today or yesterday. Oh, those wonderful, fertile, much-better-than-lazy-white-people “immigrants”.
For one, I’ve had enough of taxpayer subsidized “cheap” labor. I mow my own f*****g grass.

tony on June 14, 2013 at 9:29 pm

Sorry to say this, Schlussel, but if you voted for Romney in November, you have ZERO credibility when you attack Coulter/Malkin/etc for pushing him. You “ratified” their absolutist “Romney or ruin” position.

Limbaugh is slobbering all over Rubio like a teenage fanboy.

I wish that one brave Senator would introduce a CARBON COPY of the Rubio bill, except that it would black out all the amnesty language. They could call it “The Gang of One FIERCE, Supercharged Border Restrictions Act of 2013.” Why can’t we have these hardcore border restrictions WITHOUT the amnesty, hm? All this tough rhetoric is just a spoonful of sugar to make the poison go down a little easier.

St atusM onkKey on June 15, 2013 at 3:57 am

Its time to start the Revolution. That is the only way these people will ever leave. They won’t leave by legislation or enforcement. People who are here illegaly have no roots here and won’t die for this land. When the first shot is fired they will run so fast over the border.

The Chosen One on June 17, 2013 at 2:14 am

Rush & Hannity have been republican lap dogs for a long time! Remember how they never questioned Bush spendthrift ways! After Bush was done, they become bolder & talked about how he was not a conservative! Nothing but Republican shills! Sad to see, Levin joining his friends! His interview & support of Paul Ryan & Rubio is shameful! He is fooling the Tea Partyers & they have fallen for it! Sadly the tea partyers are honest folks but are so gullible, it is sad to see them fall for these charlatans who are out to make the big buck! Rush is milking his audience with Tea!

The fall of US is certain – not by terrorists but by Republicans who went along to make their $$$. IT IS TIME FOR 3RD PARTY…HOPE THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY DIES LIKE THE WHIGS!!
