Marco Rubio's top achievements

Breitbart reports:
Marco Rubio’s 7 Top Achievements in U.S. Senate

Following Rick Santorum’s inability to name a single achievement of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), the media sought to answer the question for themselves. Yet many reporters appear to have come up empty handed.

As The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza writes, a “major part of the problem is that Rubio doesn’t have all that many accomplishments in the Senate.”

Republicans got bad advice on immigration

After Mitt Romney lost the 2012 election, all the experts said that the Republicans must become pro-immigration in the future. Phyllis Schlafly has been saying for 3 years that this advice was wrong. Now even the NY Times admits that it was wrong:
Political pundits and Republican leaders like to say that nobody could have foreseen the extraordinary rise of Donald J. Trump’s presidential candidacy.

But there were early signs that the electorate was ready for an insurgency like the one Mr. Trump has inspired this election. ...

Mr. Fehrnstrom, Mr. Brown’s former consultant, called the Republican Party leaders’ redirection on immigration after the 2012 election a huge miscalculation.

“They told their candidates to support a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants as a way to increase outreach to Hispanics,” said Mr. Fehrnstrom, who also advised Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential race.

“And candidates who followed that advice are struggling. Donald Trump went in the opposite direction and he has total command of the 2016 field.”

The senator exercised his “blue slip” power due to concerns about Lopez’s past involvement in the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO), an organization that applauded President Obama’s executive amnesties and opposed a tough state law on illegal immigration.
