    In the clips I heard on the radio this morning, he seemed to be suggesting that the fact that the Tsarnaev brothers were allowed in here 10 years ago (or however long it was) was somehow an argument against immigration reform.  Dude - they were little children when they came here - have you now invented a way to examine the brains of five-year-olds to see if they are going to be radicalized as adults?  If so, can we use it to determine which five-year-olds are going to grow up to be republicans so we can intervene early??

    And he seemed to suggest that since their parents went back to Russia "which supposedly they were fleeing from", their asylum should have been revoked, even though by then they were legal residents.

    Altogether, I agree, a massively stupid performance.

    •  No, Rubio hasn't invented a way to examine heads (0+ / 0-)

      However, he will call in Tom Cruise who will explain how that device works.

      [Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security] do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.
