We’ve been devoting a lot of time to Marco Rubio, and with good reason. Electing a president of the United States is serious business — all the more so in in these perilous times in our nation’s history. And after eight years of Barack Obama’s liberal extremism, it’s imperative we get it right in 2016.
Donald Trump, the popular outsider, has shown himself as a childish bully, hurling schoolyard insults at Sen. Ted Cruz, whom he considers his closest rival. The more he talks — even resorting to repeatedly calling Cruz “a liar” — when in fact, Trump glibly lies about Cruz, the less presidential he appears. Marco Rubio, by contrast, doesn’t engage in bullying. Instead, he concentrates on what appear to be spoon-fed talking points that he regurgitates in rapid fire succession. His inability to respond was clearly on display as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christy pointedly called him out and Rubio reverted four times to the crib notes firmly implanted in his head. Christy was the adult reprimanding little Marco, whose dog, he tried to convince us, ate his homework. Four times.
Here we see another example of Rubio‘s McCain-like abysmal incapacity .to provide a straight answer, giving the identical non-response to a question about his amnesty scheme eight times. Follow the Real Clear Politics text as Bill O’Reilly tried, in vain, to nail Rubio down on his deceptive policy. Eight times.
Though he claims to be a conservative, Rubio is taking a pass on the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Breitbart has a copy of the CPAC statement calling Rubio’s snub a “rookie mistake.” Matthew Boyle writes, “That Rubio is skipping the pre-eminent annual conservative gathering of thousands of activists in a presidential election year is extraordinarily telling about the direction of his campaign as the entire Washington establishment aligns behind him in a last-ditch desperate bid to stop billionaire front-runner Donald Trump.”
It’s clear Marco Rubio, the boy wonder of McCain’s Gang of Eight amnesty deceit is now doing the bidding of the insatiable Chamber of Commerce and other illegal labor profiteers, who care less about the rule of law and the future of our country than they do the bottom line of their members. Jeb Bush’s deep pocket donors are now flocking to Rubio for the same reason they eagerly put $100 million in amnesty Jeb’s coffers. Jeb spent $2,884 per vote in Iowa and still came in sixth place. The $1150 per vote in New Hampshire bought him a fourth place standing. Jeb called illegal immigration “an act of love.”
Meanwhile, the Washington Free Beacon reports record-breaking numbers of illegal immigrant children are once again expected to surge across the US. / Mexico border, These events don’t happen in a vacuum, but are well choreographed. Marco Rubio, like Jeb Bush, is emulating the policies of Barack Obama, giving lip service to the unenforceable fantasy that the invading hordes will pay a fine, learn English and become exemplary citizens.
It will never happen, and neither should Marco McRubio.
