Sensing the wounds of betrayal beginning to fester among many within the conservative base -- his biggest fans and strongest advocates over the last three years -- Sen. Marco Rubio has personally penned a "Dear Friends" letter to try to assuage their concerns about both his intentions and the contents of the bill he helped craft. Rubio calls the immigration reform effort "a real trial" for him, expressing regret that many of his natural allies are furious with him for his role in the 'Gang of Eight.' The full letter is available HERE. A few excerpts, via NRO:
Since most of us see the failed logic of the " gang of eight " immigration bill, I think the corruption involved in the senate is an obvious topic. Six years is too long of a term; it should be four years ( two yrs. is too short, they're always running ). Remember how mccain used to go around bragging about his mccain/finegold campaign reform bill. I don't know what good it did other than alot of billionaires ( soros ) have been able to pick our candidates for us. Any time congress tries to rush legislation through it is not done very well and is usually for special interests rather than the voters.
