Governor Palin posted the following this morning on Twitter:
She links to an article over at Townhall showcasing the fact that Senator Rubio spoke out against a “path to citizenship” as a candidate, only to do a complete turn as a Senator.
If we are to believe candidate Marco Rubio’s comments during an Oct. 24, 2010 debate, it seems the Florida senator’s views on immigration reform have ‘evolved’ quite a bit since taking office.
During a debate with opponents Rep. Kendrick Meek and Gov. Charlie Crist, candidate Rubio argued that giving illegal immigrants an “earned path to citizenship,” which Crist, Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush had advocated, is basically amnesty.
“First of all, earned path to citizenship is basically code for amnesty. It’s what they call it,” Rubio said. “And the reality of it is this: This has to do with the bottom line that America cannot be the only country in the world that does not enforce its immigration laws. It is unfair to the people that have legally entered this country to create an alternative pathway for individuals who entered illegally and knowingly did so.”

This post is also related to a statement on Facebook which also mentions the nonsensicality of both Alaska Senators Begich and Murkowski (D and R, respectively).
Politicians wonder why we can’t trust them? Campaign flip-flops like this and carve-out bribes in the Amnesty Bill for politicians like Begich & Murkowski to exempt AK seafood workers.
