More details here:
Rubio’s campaign won’t go very far. He’s probably just in it with the hope of being Jeb’s running mate.
Mario, we know you all too well.
Too bad his ego got the best of him. Jebster has the illegal alien and their employer’s vote locked up. Not much else left for Rubio because conservatives still have the knife in their back from his Gang activity with Schumer. I’m not in favor of giving him more knives.
Yep he’s done.
CRUZ has forced everyone to throw their hats in the ring sooner than expected.
CRUZING TO VICTORY!
The only things of interest for me are:
How will Rubio be treated by:
1. Fox News
3. The MSM.
The biggie is that he’s leaving an open Senate seat, a double betrayal of the confidences put in him in 2010.
Regardless of how we may view each of them personally, I think the new (to most Americans) Republican hopefuls entering the fray — Cruz, Paul, Rubio — are the perfect counter to been-there-done-that candidates like Jeb and Hillary. Americans have always been attracted to the new and different over the worn-out. And the Bush and Clinton names are SERIOUSLY worn-out!
Such a ‘Rising Star’!....
His ‘conservative’ tea-party shelf life lasted as long as a 4th of July sparkler.
They have already been singing his praises. The only three candidates they have been positive about are Bush, Rubio and Walker.
Fox News is part of the Ministry Of Propaganda working for The Cheap Labor Express. Only candidates that will not stop the invasion/cheap labor importation are acceptable to them.
Rubio is a guy who defied the establishment, beat Charlie Crist in the primary, and became US Senator. He did this by aligning with strong conservative and grass root organizations outside the GOPe. Unfortunately, in the general election he began to envision his future beyond the Senate and was lured by the GOPe on how to “play it” for presidential aspirations. Then as a first year Senator, the GOPe duped him to support a “comprehensive immigration” bill which was more of the same as amnesty today for boarder enforcement tomorrow. To Rubios credit he realized that he was used by the GOPe and pulled support for the bill. But now he is stuck between an insurgent and the establishment. Not a place to run for President.
Yes, and someone who can so easily be 'duped' should not be President!
Here’s an idea. Let’s just have every elected GOPer run. I mean let’s just do it. All of em. every single one. That way we don’t have to watch any more “announcements” and hear all the (mostly wrong) pontifications.
If you get elected as a Republican, you are required to run for President.
This has become a grand joke for the GOP when a “front runner” is touted because he is at 25% in the polls.
The GOP just better hope the Dims sit out yet another election.
