Rubio: Method to His Madness

(Community Matters) Polling shows Senator Rubio significantly boosts his favorability among Hispanics by advocating for immigration reform. Doesn’t appear to take a hit whether or not it’s likely to pass. So, as we see him promoting it, while he’s supporting extremist amendments such as Sen John Cornyn’s – which is widely acknowleged as a ruse for torpedoing the legislation – seems he can eat the cake too.

Of course, at great potential costs with his primary voters – Tea Party activists. Oh wait, he’s now sponsoring the cookie cutter abortion restrictions (20 weeks, emergency care center standards, hospital privileges). That this legislation has no chance of making it out of the Senate doesn’t seem to matter either.

I still say not a chance in hell again during my lifetime.
