Same here... Rubio is by far the better candidate. What I hope to hear from Florida FReepers (I pinged some above) is WHY some Tea Party groups - specifically in the all-important "Villages" community - in Florida apparently "aren't satisfied" yet that Rubio is the best candidate. WHAT the heck is up with that??
Pardon my ignorance, but is Rubio hispanic by any chance? If so, he needs to be on a fast track to the 2012 ticket.
The Villages are infested with yankee liberals. It’s a retirement community and most of the residents come from outside the state. What’s so hard to understand. He is liked immensely by the Tea Party groups in this state but as with all groups, some biases die hard. The Crist campaign was big early to float the idea that Marco was for Amnesty only because of his heritage and still tries to beat that drum.
Marco’s parents fled Castro and worked hard to give their children a future. His dad retired as a bartender and his mother at all sorts of service jobs like a hotel maid. Hard work, self reliance, you know the kind of things conservatives are really against (sarc).
