The Feb. 19 Marc Caputo article, Obama’s drafts resemble Rubio’s reforms, should have been headlined: Rubio’s reforms resemble Obama’s drafts. The drafts were written in 2011 by President Obama and now suddenly they’ve become Marco Rubio’s.
For four years now President Obama has extended his hand to the GOP with grace because he’s a gentleman, only to have it rebuffed. The rough and tough GOP has responded with anger and insults.
The Republicans’ self-deportation agenda where Rubio stood right beside Mitt Romney and applauded was not accepted. Now all of a sudden Rubio is on board with the same immigration reforms that Obama had in 2011, and revising them as his own.
