Shame on Marco Rubio

(Continued)

What we need is border enforcement period. In spite of a few arrests her and there, both Bush and Obama have done a lousy job of securing the border. They haven't wanted to. Rampant violations of the Visa System are ignored.

As for Rubio's presidential ambitions, if he can't stand up to the like of John McCain and Chuck Schumer, how on Earth would he deal with hostile and devious world leaders? The general consensus was that if he had stuck with the conservative, principled position on immigration, his numbers would have been competitive with Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.

All this has convinced me that Rubio is not ready for prime-time. At this point, my favorites for 2016 are Ted Cruz (now there's a real conservative who has the guts to stand up to the liberals and lawbreakers) Scott Walker and Rand Paul. Any one of them would be terrific.

Shame on Rubio for letting John McCain and the liberal Democrats control him and use him.
