Another solid indication that if any legislation doesn't fall in Obamas favor, politically, then no deal. This guy as our President is a joke and it's time the mainstream media start to do their job and work for the citizens rather than be the lapdogs of this administration.

Don't look now, Jim, but the four Republicans in the Gang of 8 have already signed on to their proposal, which is amnesty without triggers (like enforcement). They want amnesty just as much as the Democrats do. What Rubio or any of the others say is just a distraction and has no effect on what they have already agreed to. All of these pronouncements, especially by Rubio, who seems to the the spokesman, are just to pacify the conservative wing of the party. Pathetic.

During his SOTU address, President Obama touched on broad immigration reform principles and commended the work bipartisan groups in both chambers are doing to draft a bill. His tone seemed to indicate he would let Congress take the lead on immigration. “Send me a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the next few months and I will sign it,” he said during the speech. But on Saturday, the White House leaked details of its own immigration proposal, which Sen. Marco Rubio has called “dead on arrival.”
