RUSH: Rubio Used On Amnesty ‘To Silence Conservative Opposition’

RUSH: Byron York at the DC Examiner, a story after the amnesty bill passed the Senate. I’m excerpting. This is not actually how it begins, just little portions of it. “Republicans were able to keep their heads down in part…” I want you to listen to this now.

“Republicans were able to keep their heads down in part because there wasn’t a lot of pressure coming from the anti-reform conservative base.” Byron York says that the Republican senators weren’t getting a lot of complaint phone calls and he says “that owed a great deal to the Gang’s decision to dispatch Rubio, elected as a Tea Party favorite in 2010 and viewed as a future leader of the Republican Party,” as the face of the bill.  He eliminated or reduced a whole bunch of conservative Republican members of the base calling and complaining.

RUSH: “The Gang also got lucky. During the time the bill was under consideration, a lot of Republicans became distracted by various Obama administration troubles,” and this was by design, folks, the IRS and all of that stuff.  It was real.  But amnesty is what they really want. You get amnesty, you get your 60 million permanent underclass Democrat voters.  You got all of that.   So this story basically says that Rubio was used to silence conservative opposition, because they didn’t want to harm him — and they did it “brilliantly.”
