WND — My good friend, Rush Limbaugh, is willing to give Marco Rubio grace for possibly making a “mistake” with the Gang of Eight amnesty deal.
Rush explained recently that Rubio is no moderate – calling him a “legitimate, full-throated conservative.”
Rubio is indeed squishy on the No. 1 issue in the 2016 race – immigration. When even Jeb Bush criticizes his amnesty scam, you know he cannot be the Republican nominee – not no way, not no how. Not this year, which many agree, may be the last chance for American politics to get it right.
It’s rare that I disagree with Rush. In the rare cases when I do, I have to ask myself if maybe I’ve gone off the rails. That’s why I waited this long to think about it – to consider what Rush said.
While I believe Rush is sincere, I do not believe Marco Rubio is.
We simply cannot afford as a nation to make a mistake. And I believe Rubio as the nominee will be a huge one – one that is irreversible after eight years of Barack Obama.
But there’s more to the Rubio conundrum than just that.
His interventionist foreign-policy ideas scare me.
