Posted on 10/20/2011 6:57:57 PM PDT by Hunton Peck
Sen. Marco Rubio is firing back at a Washington Post report that claims he embellished his Cuban familys history.
To suggest my familys story is embellished for political gain is outrageous, he said in a written statement. The dates I have given regarding my familys history have always been based on my parents recollections of events that occurred over 55 years ago and which were relayed to me by them more than two decades after they happened. I was not made aware of the exact dates until very recently.
Whats important is that the essential facts of my familys story are completely accurate, Rubio said, adding that Castros ascension to power meant that his family would not be able to achieve their dream of returning to Cuba.
Rubio said his parents, Mario and Oriales Rubio, and his brother, Mario, arrived in the U.S. in 1956 on an immigration visa, prepared to live there permanently but hoping to return to Cuba one day.
In 1961, he said, his mother and older siblings returned...

He cheated on Catherine and wanted her out of her family business
Then committed suicide
When can we see such meticulous examination of family information about Barack Hussein’s rancid family history by the Washington Compost? They are not at all interested in finding out who his parents and grandparents were hanging out with during his impressionable years, who paid for his expensive schooling all the way to the university level and what he was doing in Paa-kee-stahn during his college years. Inquiring minds at the Compost only want to find flaws in freedom-loving American families such as Rubio’s. Shameful.
Now I have to belt up if I am driving 3 blocks away to the supermarket or risk getting pulled over by some donut eater extorting money for the county.
He's better than a democrat, but is very suspect.
I have some well earned first-order conclusions regarding those two inputs.
Please use your seat belt.

What are your specific conclusions regarding Rubio's comments here?
Just like cell phone use, Bush passed legislation outlawing individual states and counties from passing laws against their use, did the same thing with firearms.
I can drive with a cell phone in one hand and a 45 in the other, but because of those meddling pricks Rubio and Crist I have to be strapped in.
Individual cities and counties, not states.
Shameless lame stream media...
I'm equal opportunity anti-strong feral gooberment. If I was king for a day, we'd have new lamp-post garnish.
I have no respect for the current government of the United States. R or D. They have overstepped their bounds and need to be put back into their appropriate place. As servants. Per the Constitution.
I do, because I love me. And it was nice of you to ask, without sending men in blue uniforms, wearing guns, and getting paid by a government to make sure I do.
Wearing seatbelts is a good idea.
Sending armed agents of the state to enforce it is a bad idea.
Because government is all about the naked use of force.
“what he was doing in Paa-kee-stahn during his college years”
Yeah, where is the investigative report on what the dweeb did in Pakistan Amazing that there is silence about this and dozens of other details.
Like why in he hell was he editor of the Harvard Law Review but never wrote anything for it?
Who did he smoke pot with in college?
Was he stoned during the 60 minute “punch drunk” interview? (Anyone with eyes can see that he was AND HE IS PRESIDENT!)
Why is this idiot President at all?
Marco Rubio was the youngest ever speaker of the House in Florida. He is a decent young man with high ethics. He is also a rising star in the Republican Party and is likely seen as a huge threat to Obama and getting the Hispanic vote. I consider the WaPost who already did a hit piece on Rick Perry, which was a non-story just like this one.
Obama has always run his campaigns this way. Look back to when he was running in Illinois.
His M.O.: Dig thru the opponent’s record, extract whatever, then proceed to slime the opponent in the hope that the opponent will back out. He knows he can’t win an honest election.
That status, in my opinion,* requires that both parents be citizens of the United States.
In my opinion,* the person now holding the office of President is not constitutionally qualified to to do so, because like Rubio, both of his parents were not citizens.
*The courts having refused to opine in this matter, my opinion is just as good as anyone else's. Since Rubio knows just as much about his eligibility and the Constitution as I do, I fault him for allowing his name to be mentioned for national office without seeking a legal opinion.
When people start praising a politican, I make sure I have my hand on my wallet.
I'm not so much against Rubio, as the system, and all of the politicians.
I think they would look better mucking out stalls.
All of them. D & R.
You've now said exactly nothing in two posts...that's ten seconds I'll never get back. Thanks.
