For a big tech executive, you&rsquo;d think she&rsquo;d remember Google.<br />\n After boasting that American Express just boosted his credit limit, Rubio gave a series of canned speeches in response to every question, including everyone&rsquo;s favorite about &ldquo;the future:&rdquo;<br />\n &ldquo;This election is about the future, about what kind of country this nation is gonna be in the 21st century. This next election is actually a generational choice. A choice about what kind of nation we will be in the 21st century ... [blah, blah, blah &mdash; seriously, he actually said the words, &lsquo;blah, blah blah&rsquo;] And so here&rsquo;s the truth: This election is about the future, and the Democratic Party, and the political left has no ideas about the future.&rdquo;<br />\n (Rubio proposes to be the candidate of the future with this brand-new idea: mass immigration!)<br />\n Someone needs to tell Marco that every election is about the future, not just this one. It was also the slogan for every high school graduation and prom &mdash; circa 1999.<br />\n We have now had the fourth straight Republican debate in which Rubio was not asked one question about his single legislative accomplishment: Passing amnesty in the U.S. Senate.<br />\n Rubio was Sen. Chuck Schumer&rsquo;s patsy on the job-killing amnesty bill. He voted for the job-killing &mdash; and widely hated &mdash; Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. In a debate on economics, he did not get a question on either one.<br />\n Having actually asked Rubio a tough question once, Jorge Ramos remains the only immigrant willing to do a job Americans just won&rsquo;t do: Ask Marco Rubio a serious question.<br />\n Rubio was practically taunting the moderators to bring up immigration with him.<br />\n &mdash; He complained about the big banks hiring &ldquo;the fanciest law firm in Washington or the best lobbying firm to deal with all these regulations.&rdquo;<br />\n A guy whose entire career has been dedicated to giving cheap labor to employers while driving down American wages should steer clear of complaining about &ldquo;special interests.&rdquo; It&rsquo;s like a hooker complaining about promiscuity.<br />\n &mdash; He said the &ldquo;problem is that today people are not successful working as hard as ever because the economy is not providing jobs that pay enough.&rdquo;<br />\n I wonder if the dump of millions of low-wage foreign workers on our country has anything to do with that?<br />\n &mdash; He gave a brave little speech announcing his opposition to jihadists &mdash; setting him apart from everyone else on that stage, who LOVE Islamic jihadists! &mdash; and claimed that radical terrorist groups &ldquo;recruit Americans using social media.&rdquo;</p>\n<p> NO, MARCO, ISIS doesn&rsquo;t recruit &ldquo;Americans&rdquo; on social media. It recruits immigrants and their children &mdash; whom you want to import more of, by the way.<br />\n Given his record, it&rsquo;s too late for Rubio to take America&rsquo;s side on immigration. But it&rsquo;s still amazing that only Ted Cruz is smart enough to adopt Trump&rsquo;s runaway, most popular position.<br />\n After coming in the lower-middle of the last three debate polls, Cruz finally made it to the No. 2 spot this week. By sheer coincidence, it was the first debate where he fully adopted Trump&rsquo;s position on immigration.<br />\n Too bad Cruz isn&rsquo;t a natural-born citizen.<br />\n But it was good to nail down the universal Republican position on radical jihadists: OPPOSED. Wow. Did not see that coming.<br />\n Republicans also clarified their position on tax hikes: OPPOSED. We&rsquo;re still waiting for a GOP consensus on child labor.<br />\n I don&rsquo;t think taxes are that big a deal to most people. Reagan got all the low-hanging fruit: No one&rsquo;s tax rates are in the 90 percent bracket anymore.<br />\n It was a relief to watch a debate with no snarky questions from the moderators, but it could have been more riveting. Only two minutes of the debate were at all interesting &mdash; and that was the two minutes spent on immigration.<br />\n Talking about the wall, Trump said: &ldquo;The wall will be built. The wall will be successful. And if you think walls don&rsquo;t work, all you have to do is ask Israel.&rdquo; The cheering from the Coulter household was so loud, it could be heard in Tel Aviv, which is safer than El Paso because Israel has a wall.<br />\n Given Rubio&rsquo;s special concern with Israel, you&rsquo;d think he would have jumped at that invitation, but he stood dumb, like he was trying to figure out how to work in another reference to his father being a bartender.<br />\n Only John Kasich interrupted to announce that we can&rsquo;t deport &ldquo;11 million&rdquo; illegals &mdash; with the usual rigamarole about how they&rsquo;ll have to be &ldquo;law-abiding&rdquo; (no, they won&rsquo;t) and they&rsquo;ll have to &ldquo;pay a penalty&rdquo; (there will be no penalty, except the millions of dollars we owe them under the Earned Income Tax Credit).<br />\n Kasich then sneered: &ldquo;Come on, folks. We all know you can&rsquo;t pick them up and ship them across, back across the border. It&rsquo;s a silly argument. It is not an adult argument. It makes no sense.&rdquo;<br />\n Trump replied that President Eisenhower &mdash; &ldquo;you don&rsquo;t get nicer, you don&rsquo;t get friendlier&rdquo; &mdash; managed to deport more than a million illegals back in the 1950s.<br />\n I would add that: For every illegal Ike deported, 10 more self-deported.<br />\n That was the single best part of the debate &mdash; other than the Numbers USA ad showing civil rights hero Barbara Jordan&rsquo;s stirring call for a restriction on immigration: &ldquo;Many American workers do not have adequate job prospects. We should make their task easier to find employment, not harder.&rdquo;</p>\n<p> WE NEED to have at least one GOP debate where the only topics allowed for discussion are: immigration, trade and crime &mdash; i.e., (1) the only domestic policies Republicans disagree on, and (2) the only policies that directly affect most people&rsquo;s lives.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n', created = 1576253220, expire = 1576339620, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:6176a2835982750c7a6fe2223c1b0555' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
