A possible immigration reform measure got a very important boost this morning when Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) endorsed the idea of a pathway to citizenship. To begin with, Paul is a senator and every senator who supports the idea gets the chamber one vote closer to passing a bill.
More importantly, this endorsement by Paul now means a significant number of the top tier possible 2016 Republican Presidential candidates support a pathway to citizenship. This should make it easier for regular rank and file members to get on board with it.

In what is probably one of the fastest flip-flops in political history, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) now says he is actually open to creating a pathway to citizenship as part of comprehensive immigration reform, even though he literally just published a book that called only for creating a pathway to legal residency.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (R) came out against creating a pathway to citizenship in comprehensive immigration reform. Bush only wants a pathway to legal residency.
During an interview on NBC’s Today show Bush said, “Our proposal is a proposal that looks forward and if we want to create an immigration policy that’s going to work, we can’t continue to make illegal immigration an easier path than legal immigration. There’s a natural friction between our immigrant heritage and the rule of law. This is the right place to be in that sense. Not to take away people’s rights”

Here’s the central aspect of the Rmoney Presidential Campaign: he and his rich cronies need the American people, engaging our vaunted short-term memory, to forget all about the global depredation and financial collapse of the Bush Years. Mitt’s rebranded the GOP to be all about a Businessman President, who’s Compassionate Yet Principled, who will deregulate America to get bureaucrats out of the way of entrepreneurs and Big Bidness. Also: taxcuts!
Wait, how is this different from W?

Hundreds of legal voters in just one Florida county have been thrown off the voter rolls as part of an effort to purge “non-citizens” from participating in the 2012 election. The effort, spearheaded by Governor Rick Scott, is reminiscent of the effort in 2000 to purge the voter rolls in Florida, led by then-Governor Jeb Bush, brother of the man who would become President that year thanks to a razor-thin margin in the state.
