I hear Michael Medved’s a big fan!
It’s a shame. There for a little while, Rubio seemed promising.

Yep, he seemed to be the golden boy for the GOP and tea party. Sadly, he has turned into another GOPe. Seems like McCain got his claws into him. And, I thought Rubio was smart. Silly me!
Rubio will never get my vote again.
Adam at the St Pete Commie Times is a hard core leftist and propagandist .
This left wing rag had such a bad rep it changed its name in a lame effort to fool people.
Actually , it’s the vile McConnell who cooked up the scheme with K street to use Rubio to ram thru Amnesty .
Redstate broke the news on secret meetings .
Rubio is owned by the GOP Billionaire slave labor lobby .
Koch Brothers, the little Facebook con artist ,Butts family that own HEB grocery stores , Adelson,
