Skip to comments.Rubio to visit New Hampshire as he weighs 2016 run
Posted on 05/09/2014 8:36:32 AM PDT by TangledUpInBlue
Fighting to revive his political prospects, Sen. Marco Rubio is returning to the presidential campaign circuit and beefing up a political organization that could lay the groundwork for a White House bid.
In the clearest sign yet of his interest in a presidential run, the Florida Republican plans to visit New Hampshire on Friday, his first appearance in an early-voting state in more than a year. He is set to headline a pair of fundraisers in Republican-rich counties and meet with local officials, efforts that will grant him an audience with activists and donors in the home of the nation's first presidential primary.

I, for one, don't know where he is coming from, or where he is going. I don't see that he has a clear vision for the country, let alone the job he now holds.
I think his vision includes converting millions of illegal aliens into welfare-sucking, Obamacare-using Democrat voters.
They need the base to win. I think
They can’t win the base if they work for amnesty without an unprecedented and complete reversal/repentance
If they listen to the media on the demise of the tea party, they’d be wiser (understatement) to observe the IRS hearings
And put 2 & 2 together
Historically, it was generally accepted that Senators would make lousy Presidents. History has proven correct in that.
History will be proven wrong if Ted Cruz becomes POTUS. Ted has the chops and is doing all the right things to prove his conservative cred.
Poor Marco still has that Gang of 8 stench on his shoes. Oh, did he ever get played by McCain and Schumer.
Well, to start with, what he tells the English speakers is totally opposite what he tells Spanish speakers.. :/
I agree with you. He got played by McCain and Shummer; he might have been the one who would have put rules to stop the invasion of the US before anything else on that issue. I remember distinctly that Schummer was speaking for Rubio before Rubio was speaking for himself about the committee.
All of these conservatives need to study US history from the Eisenhower presidency up to current events. They don't seem to have the feel for what our foeign policy should be, from an historical, global perspective. Sometimes I think Rubio has really good instincts and McCain and Schummer took him down on purpose because of that.....leave that FL option for Jeb Bush.
Jeb Bush, I could never support. Rubio? Yeah, probably.
History since WW2 is that a good President would be a general or a gov who has lead the SAG. The rest of them over the past 70 years....not so much.
Red Hampshire always gets it wrong.
Actually, Eisenhower was one of the WORST of the presidents in my book.
Ted will have to win without Red Hampshire; no chance there.
Amnesty-Rubio dreams of giving a bilingual concession speech to Hillary.
There are negatives, sure. But I suspect in retrospect the good is pretty good, in terms of the arc of history.
Fluff is a problem for Rubio Working with the dems ch Schumer no less is a complete deal breaker
That he doesn’t know that closes the deal
Any one of them can count on the Romney non voters times two in my opinion not voting for them. Those are the people who know amnesty and any other stupid idea that W pushed through are up there with the damage bring done now
They also are not going to vote for someone who refuses to represent them. They can stay home and just watch Hillary do that
And Rubio et al are pretending the tea party broke up. And that they did solution of a fizzling idea
They should take a peek at the Lois Lerner deal
Duh duh. Just duh
Post of the week!
Good. If he runs, West has indicated he’d go for the open Senate seat.
Rubio has the same instincts as Mitt Romney. Lie and pretend you believe one thing, while you are actually going to do another. He came out pro-illegal before he won the (R) FL senate nomination. That nearly sunk him so he stopped talking except to say that his opponent Charlie Crist wanted amnesty. He forgot to mention that was his goal too. At least he forgot to mention it to the American citizens who spoke English only. But, he made certain the Spanish speakers knew he would work hard for amnesty.
Which is precisely what he did when he got into office. Was he used by Schmucky Schumer and McCain? Yes. Did Schumer and McCain trick him? No way. He thought he was safely in the Senate, so he believed he could get away with it. For his sake he knows better now.
And so do we. Just say no to the lying two-faced traitor, Rubio.
Not going to get fooled again.
I voted for him for senator from my state of Florida.
He mislead us.
I will not support him for dog catcher or any other office.
Allow me to tweek you.......
Hillary vs. Rubio
You don’t vote? Write in? What?
Here’s my problem. I have trouble with ALL of them on global affairs. They all (including Cruz) need to go back to school and develop a world perspective. They also need to learn some about how a society functions and the Laws of Economics. I’m wondering if it would have to be someone like Jeff Sessions to actually save us.....someone who has honest, deeply developed views, from a lifetime of study and experience.
Rubio, Cruz, and Jindal don’t waste out time. None of you are eligible to the offices of president and vice president.
Uphold the spirit and the letter of the law that is the Constitution of the United States.
No More Arthurs or Obamas. Two ineligible presidents is TWO too many.
Forget it Rubio. You screwed the pooch with your Amnesty crap and taking it up the you-know-what from Chucky Schmucky.
They all have differences in approaches but only Rubio decided to openly lie to our face, turn and stab us in the back even worse than John McCain. I can’t tell you how disgusted I was listening to Rush Limbaugh’s show air ads with Marco telling everyone exactly how real conservatives were in full support for amnesty. He made the rounds on conservative talk shows spouting the same garbage. Made me want to throw up all over his amnesty.
It’s one thing to hold a different idea. It’s another thing to lie about it to get elected then turn against the very people who voted you in. Marco took it a step farther than I have ever seen a politician go and he did it without a second thought. Which means there is something wrong with the way his brain functions. No way I support anyone who is that messed up.
It seems forever the republicans have foisted mamby pamby dem lite RINO’s upon us.
Rubio is one of those and I am fed up with it.
I will only vote for real conservatives or the hell with it.
NO more dem lite like McLame, let’s go along to get along Dole, Romney? Come on man.
