    Its all hot-air.

    Rubio has no credibility on illegal immigration. He emphatically opposed any amnesty during his 2010 Senate run when he said, correctly, that it only encourages more illegal entry. Once in the Senate he teams up with Chuck Schumer and John McCain, two of the biggest amnesty supporters ever, and Rubio becomes part of the Senate gang of 8 bill that grants amnesty. He also voted against amendments to that bill that would require certification of a secure border before any amnesty. Now that he’s running in the primaries, he’s back to being a tough guy on enforcement.

    He still will not say whether he now supports the 12 nation TPP free trade deal which will flood this country with foreign workers and lower wages, even though he gave his unqualified endorsement of it earlier this year. In short, he will say whatever he has to say at the moment, and then do the exact opposite when it’s expedient. An empty suit. And the media never calls him on it.
