    I have heard, several times, in MSM, Rubio as being a "leader" of immigration reform. IIRC, it was Schumer who called Rubio out a couple of months ago, telling him to get on the bus or they were leaving without him. Am I wrong?

    Rubio has been nothing if not obstructionist, in the whole matter. I'm not Hispanic, but I am offended by the way he speaks about immigration reform--at least in English. The privilege that Rubio and Cruz enjoy by way of being of Cuban decent comes into real focus: they may be Hispanic, but their experience is far removed from the majority of Americans of Hispanic heritage.

    So why is MSM promoting this meme that Rubio is a leader on immigration? I just hate it when reporters parrot back stuff like that. Are the MSM that invested in Rubio becoming a viable candidate for 2016?

    Keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce.---Molly Ivins

      I meant to hit reply but I posted a new answer.  It's a fair question.  Also "leadership" to the GOP establishment seems to mean something different than it means for ordinary Americans.
