That turn of a phrase was just too good -- not to write a brief post about it.

First Rubio has been complaining (in between gulps of water) that the President needs to send his Immigration plan to Congress. That the President needs to lead on this issue.

And then, when that plan ends up in Rubio's clammy, fidgety hands -- Marco Rubio declares:

"If actually proposed, the president's bill would be dead on arrival in Congress."
When commenting on Rubio's "reflexive dismissal" out of hand, of the leaked proposal, Joy Reid quipped to Chris Matthews today, (something to the effect of):
"Also 'Dead on Arrival' -- Rubio's chances of winning over Latino voters."

Way to win over your "target audience," Marco. Right, an 8-16 year "arduous path to citizenship" is "a non-starter" for Republicans -- maybe you guys would rather have them take up Romney's solution:

Otherwise known as "Self-Deportation" -- after a life-time of low-wage, back-breaking work? How about a revolving, permanent Work Visa, with a guaranteed "cap on wages" too, Marco?

Yeah that will win that allusive voting block back, Right!  What a maroon!

I'm sure this will help Rubio's cause -- Selling "water bottles" starting a $25 a pop:

Rubio PAC Selling Water Bottles After SOTU -- talkingpointsmemo

Hey, ethnic voters are you "thirsty" for a new home?  Compadres, does Marco Rubio have a new Republican deal for you! ... (The GOP wants your votes, for Pete's sake!)

The Rubio Water Bottle will keeps your beverage cool, during those long days of toil, working under the hot southern sun.  

[Fine print: No Returns, No Guarantee. Rubio Water Bottles may fail meet sponsor's advertized claims. Believe claims at your own risk. Always, always consider the source.]

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
