There's nothing funnier than listening to sore losers and losers don't coma any sorer than the GOP:
"Rubio told “ABC World News” on Friday, “The White House never called us about this, no one reached out to us and told us this was on its way.”
"I doubt this was received with anything but laughter at the White House."

Maybe Darrell Issa will stat another investigation. That really was very unfair of Obama-he should have let them know in advance so Rubio could finally introduce that Dream Act Lite's he's been promising and not delivering for months.
It was a great move on so many levels but hearing the GOP howl about it is an extra heaping helping of icing on the cake:
"Obama has now done an end run around Congress, and Republicans are howling that the White House has acted politically. Wow. I’ll bet there’s gambling in Casablanca, too."
Yes, that's right-Mitt Romney of all people is protesting that a move is political-the guy who holds the world record for number of panders in a single bound.
Rubio was supposed to be his ace in the hole for the Hispanic vote kind of like his own wife, Ann Romney, was supposed to be his ace in the hole with women. That's GOP politics. If women don't like their policies get a woman to advocate these policies women don't like. If Hispanics don't like their policies they get a Hispanic face to advocate the policies Hispanics don't like. What could be more air tight than that?
"But stealing a march on Rubio was only half the strategy. Obama also caught Mitt Romney flat-footed. When Bob Schieffer asked Romney on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday whether he, as president, would repeal what Obama had done, Romney had no answer."
"Romney would say only that he would “look at that setting as we reach it.”
"And with that, the Obama trap snapped shut. The choice for Hispanic voters is now simple: Vote for Obama and you are guaranteed a humane immigration policy for your children, relatives, friends, neighbors and fellow Hispanics for the next four years."
"Vote for Romney and you get the uncertainty of which “setting” he chooses to take.
“This is a stroke of political genius,” Bruce Morrison told me. A former Democratic congressman from Connecticut, Morrison was chairman of the House Immigration Subcommittee, a member of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform and House author of the Immigration Act of 1990. He’s now an immigration attorney and lobbies on a wide variety of immigration issues."
“Obama has taken Rubio’s idea and put it into action,” Morrison said. “He has given these people a work permit, the ability to remain in this country, but no permanent status.” Their legal status can be terminated at any time. “But it won’t be terminated by Obama,” Morrison said.
All the Right wing talking heads can come up with is that this is some grave usurping of the Constitution. Sure-Obama invented the Executive Order, in 8 years W. Bush never used it once, he certainly didn't shatter the record for Executive Orders by far..
