If actually proposed, the President’s bill would be dead on arrival in Congress, leaving us with unsecured borders and a broken legal immigration system for years to come,” said Rubio in a statement
I really had hope that the “new” Republicans in the Senate and House would at least be willing to do a minimal amount of compromise in working with their Democratic counterparts. But that hope took a serious beating recently when Senator Marco Rubio, who is now considered the darling of the Senate, made a comment about President Obama immigration bill that he has proposed.
I was hoping to hear words like “We don’t agree with all of it but it is a starting point for negotiations”. Instead what Mr. Rubio shouted as quickly as he could, I imagine he has really not read the bill, that it “IS DEAD ON ARRIVAL”. For you blog newbies caps means shouting 🙂 Call me naive but I thought the typical political procedures were for the two parties to present their ideas and then to work together to pick the best, or at least the most acceptable, of the two. To me DEAD ON ARRIVE doesn’t accomplish anything in that arena.
I don’t know who Mr. Rubio was trying to impress with is quick words of opposition? I thought the tea party was waning in the wings of their party now that Mr. Rove has declared war on them. So, I imagine it was not for their sake. It is widely shown in poll after poll that the populace want very much for those people in Washington to get along so I know Mr. Rubio was not shouting for us. So, why was he so quick to jump on the stalemate bandwagon.
Maybe Senator Rubio just has a bad PR guy who can’t get to him quick enough before words blurt out of his mouth. I was kind of hoping he would be one of the future leaders to help bring us back together. I had my hopes up but…..
But I’m just a simple guy so what do I know….
