I bet you all remember the Kerry Campaign, and the Republican meme that Kerry was for Iraq, before he was against it, labeling him as a flip-flopper. The Republican Party seems to have taken that page from Kerry’s playbook, because lately they have performed some flip-flops that even make Little Lord Willard etching his sketch seem tame. Marco Rubio on Immigration reform is just one of many examples.
He was a leading member of a bipartisan "Gang of Eight" Senators who pushed a comprehensive immigration reform bill through the chamber earlier this year.
But with that measure facing little hope of passage in the Republican-controlled House, Sen. Marco Rubio feels Congress should play small ball when it comes to approving any bills on immigration reform.
Alex Conant, spokesman for the first-term Republican from Florida, said Monday those who favor the comprehensive immigration overhaul passed by the Senate in June need to be "realistic in our expectations" of what the House might embrace.
"An all-or-nothing strategy on immigration reform would result in nothing. What is keeping us from progress on a series of immigration issues on which there is strong consensus is the fear that a conference committee on a limited bill will be used to negotiate a comprehensive one.

Rachel Maddow discussed how this fits into Republicans' extreme aversion to work. And they call minorities lazy!!
Despite Republican lies that there is no time, there is plenty of time to pass immigration reform. Obama and the Democrats gave them WAY too much in the Senate Bill, but once something Republicans say they want becomes amenable to Obama and the Democrats, Republicans refuse to take yes for an answer. They want to sabotage government, not govern. Since they go to such lengths to avoid their jobs, remove them!
