Dubious Rubio's Immigration Failure
Columnist Ruben Navarrette sums up how Sen. Marco Rubio can no longer be taken seriously on immigration.
Given his retreat, Rubio may have actually diminished the GOP brand among Latinos. He sent the message that, despite their lip service about immigration reform, Republicans won’t stand up to right-wing nativists. He is lost, and so is the party. Rubio was once front-page news, and now he is yesterday’s news. No one cares what he thinks about the immigration issue, because they know that –given time –it’ll change.Ouch. My question is why did anyone take Rubio seriously? When the going gets tough Rubio gets to choking. Cue video.
