Yesterday, I heard excerpts of Limbaugh sounding somewhat resigned to the fact that immigration reform's time has probably come, but I would not consider him a supporter. Today, Marco Rubio went on his show to make the case to the country's Dittoheads and believes he persuaded the king of conservative radio. And something very interesting is going on. Rubio is trying to make the case that the President is really not on board with the Gang of Eight's enforcement before citizenship idea. Why would he do this when the President really has not said this? Because if conservative talk radio can make supporting the Senate plan somehow a vote against the President, then it makes swallowing the rest of the plan a lot easier.
And to that I say, whatever floats your boat. Obviously, we need a real way to achieve earned permanent residency. But if it has to wait until benchmarks in the bill are achieved, I think a lot of the pro-immigration advocates can live with that.
