The Democrats came roaring back in 2006 and again in 2008. There's no reason Republicans can't do the same, unburdened by having to run against an incumbent in 2016. Unless Marco Rubio has his way.
The Democrats never change their ideas; they change the voters. For decades, Democrats have been working feverishly to create more Democrats by encouraging divorce (another Democratic voter!), illegitimacy (another Democratic voter!) and Third World immigration (another Democratic voter!).
Strangely, some Republicans seem determined to create more Democratic voters, too. That will be the primary result of Sen. Marco Rubio's amnesty plan.
IT'S NOT AMNESTY! Rubio's proponents cry. They seem to think they can bully Republicans the way the Democrats do, by controlling the language.
Rubio's bill is nothing but amnesty. It isn't even "amnesty thinly disguised as border enforcement." This is a wolf in wolf's clothing.
Despite all the blather about how Rubio demands "Enforcement First!" the very 1st thing his proposal does is make illegal aliens legal.(Don't call them "illegal aliens"!)
The ability to live & work legally in America is the most valuable commodity in the world; it's the Hope Diamond of the universe. I know young, well-educated Canadians who waited a decade for that privilege.
Step 1of Marco Rubio's plan is: Grant illegal aliens the right to live and work in America legally.(Rubio's 1st move in poker: Fold.)
People who have broken our laws will thus leap ahead of millions of foreigners dying to immigrate here, but -- unwilling to enter illegally -- waiting patiently in their own countries.
The only thing the newly legalized illegal immigrants won't get immediately is citizenship. Rubio claims that under his plan, they won't be able to vote or go on welfare. But in practice, they'll have to wait only until the ACLU finds a judge to say otherwise.
And, the vast majority of illegal aliens are Hispanic, and Hispanics have a higher teen birthrate than any other ethnic group. In California, a majority of all Hispanic births are illegitimate. That's a lot of Democratic voters coming.
And look how great that's turned out! With Hispanics on track to become the largest ethnic group in CALIFORNIA this year, the state that gave us Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan is incapable of electing any Republican statewide anymore. TAXES KEEP GOING UP, AND THERE'S NO ONE LEFT TO PAY THE BILL.
That will be our entire country if Republicans fall for Rubio's phony "Enforcement First!" plan. Perplexingly, some Republicans seem determined to TURN THE WHOLE NATION INTO CALIFORNIA, in the foolish hope of winning 1 last election.
No border can be secure when the pot of gold on the other side is an American green card.(Again playing games with language, Rubio doesn't call the right to legally live and work here a "green card," but in practical effect, that's what it is.)
So when exactly does the enforcement part of Rubio's "Enforcement First!" plan kick in? Answer: NEVER.
Or rather, enforcement becomes both impossible -- because nothing will stop them if legalization is the lure -- and irrelevant -- because there's NO PENALTY for leaving the border wide open.
Even if enforcement "fails," are the 11 million illegals already legalized by Rubio going to be asked to leave? Of course not.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is a Republican who -- as a Princeton and Harvard Law graduate -- does not yearn for "strange new respect" from the elites. This week, he said of Rubio's amnesty plan: "To allow those who came here illegally to be placed on such a path is both inconsistent with rule of law and profoundly UNFAIR to the millions of legal immigrants who waited years, if not decades, to come to America legally."
If only other Republicans didn't ride the tea party to victory before realizing they really just want to be John McCain.

DBWronger: 4 budgets in 4 years.
You're welcome.
Ok....

Give us the vote totals in Congress for each of those budgets.

... got a problem there, don't you?
That's because Obama only submitted 2 budgets in 4 years, and the sum total of votes in Congress for each and all of the 2 budgets he submitted of the 4 budgets he was supposed to submit was ZERO. That's NONE, NADA, ZILCH.
Obviously, every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot.

By the way, when do you think Obama will deliver that budget proposal he referenced last week when he said it will be late?
(Like he's really going to submit one....)

Here, on Earth, we have a different history.
The recession was caused by the Democrats' Marxist equal-outcome subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that collapsed the economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd in the Senate and Frank in the House.
But, that's what happens when the Very Silly Party like the Democrats puts a person who throws his male page off his New York hotel balcony and runs a male prostitution racket out of his house in charge of overseeing financial services in the country.

I noticed every fraud Democrat here is avoiding talking about Al Qaeda bombing us as if they're on a schedule again, just like it was when Clinton was president before Bush and Chaney kicked the shit out of them.

How's that Obama foreign policy working out for you?

The sum total of votes in the entire Congress for each, and both of the two budgets Obama submitted of the four budgets Obama was supposed to submit was ZERO. That's NADA, NONE, ZILCH.
Obama gets virtually 100 percent of the black vote, and he can't get even one goddam vote from even the Congressional Black Caucus.
That means every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot.
So, why do you treat him like some kind of deity while the real leaders of the Democratic Party think Obama is an ignorant idiot?
You are either an idiot or a liar.

Which is it.

So which years do you think he did not submit a budget?

2010? Even dumbass Ryan knew he submitted this one

How about Congress act as if money doesn't grow on trees. Since you really, really seem to really, really want to answer this question, I'll ask it again:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
And, thank you for purchasing products made from oil. I spend the money you give to me riding really fine show-quality motorcycles.
So why do you need the government subsidy? Are you just like those 47%ers you bitch about. You know, with your hand out? Why can't you make it on your own?

In case actual ZUSZ history isn't included in your indoctrination sessions, I'll educate you:

dot-com bust

The Arabs declare a global war on the United States

(beginning total debt before these events - 5 trillion dollars)

The Republicans, during this war the Arabs started, turned over to the Democrats a declining deficit of 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollars in January, 2007.

Kindly tell us what the Democrats did to the deficit and debt since.
Did you say the Democrats increased the deficit ONE THOUSAND PERCENT?
Did you say the Democrats DOUBLED the debt?

With all that money borrowed, we probably have space stations in orbit and mining facilities on the moon and research facilities on Mars, right?
Well, not quite. We dont' even have a goddam space program anymore.

So, just where did that mountain of money go?
