Rubio condemns Bachmann
Salon ^ | 07/19/12 | Alex Seitz-Wald

Posted on 07/23/2012 7:51:12 PM PDT by DFG

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, a rising star in the party and a potential vice-presidential pick for Mitt Romney, said this morning that he disagreed with Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann’s baseless call to investigate Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the U.S. government.

I don't understand why so many Freepers are enamored with Rubio. He is weak on going after the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists. He also supports the Dream Act.

Looks like I’m sending another e-mail to my Senator Marco Rubio. He’s not all we thought he would be it seems.

Some Freepers are understandably anxious to have a non white champion for conservatism, but Rubio is a dud.

Rubio's problem is that he is finding it very difficult to think of the interests of the American people first!

Otherwise he's about as Conservative as any other upper-class hispanic in the Western hemisphere.

I was a fan of Rubio till he endorsed Romney. Then I started to find out what he’s really all about. As far as I’m concerned, he can be Romney’s running mate. They deserve each other.

I will no longer be associated with any group that supports Rubio

Rubio supporters are not conservatives.

Not only Rubio pushes Illegal Alien Amnesty, and supports Government funding of Global Warming nonsense...he is also is pro-Terrorist.

Bachmann is 100% correct on calling out Hillary’s asst who has relations w Muzzy Bro’hood

Maybe its time for Real Conservatives to dump the Tea Party...and start our own truly conservative movement. The Tea Party does not represent conservatism anymore

Romney has been awfully quiet on this issue as well. You would think the presumptive nominee would show some leadership and pick a side.

Ineligible and stupid is no way to go through the Senate, Mr. Rubio.

Funny how pointing out the obvious by Ms. Bachmann brings the critters out of the woodwork.

Makes you wonder what the real agenda is in DC.

It certainly is not protecting you and me.

Another Betrayal!

The Brotherhood is NO different from the American Bund back in the 1930's

What are they THINKING!?!?!

Again I ask, what will these people think when they are paying the infidel taxes and being put do the axe for speaking about their precocious gay marriage?

Wake up Rubio! Oh yeah, and I am sure your amnesty bill grants it to the OTM (other than mexicans) who cross the border everyday too!

He is becoming part of the problem!

I think it was Frank Gaffney who said the GOP is just as deeply in the pockets of the muslim brotherhood as the democrats. The current GOP behavior isn’t encouraging.

Gomert and Bachmann were both signed on to a PRIVATE letter asking simply how she got a security clearance considering her family’s background (as would happen for any ordinary citizrn trying to get a clearance). McShady the traitor read the letter on the Senate floor and started hammering away at Michelle. Now Rubio..... A pox on all of the so called conservatives who would sell this country out. Good for Gomert and Bachmann ....we could use dozens more of the same

Both he and Allen West have bad-mouthed the Tea Party. What is it with these supposed conservative politicians? Are they really so enamored with the Republican elites? It seems that with almost all politicians, it’s all about ME.

Reading the story it looks like he was at NPR and was answering to make a good impression on the liberal audience. May be a good way to endear himself to Romney, but not a good way to convince conservatives that he should be the VP pick. It’s sad that as far as conservatives have brought the GOP that we are scrambling for scraps at the table.

While I agree with Bachmann that there should be an investigation into the Muslim Brotherhood connections and think that Rubio is wrong, what he said and what Salon blares in their headlines are two different things.

From Salon: Rubio condemns Bachmann - Republican Sens. Marco Rubio and Scott Brown joined John McCain in denouncing the congresswoman's Muslim witch hunt

What Rubio actually said: “I can tell you that I don’t share the feelings that are in that letter,” he continued, “And in fact, I’m very very careful and cautious about ever making accusations like that about anyone.”

He disagrees with her, I disagree with him. But, that hardly sounds like a condemnation of a Muslim witchhunt. Whenever I see any of these type articles coming out of the lame-stream press I usually want to read it myself and make my own conclusions.

Michelle has more cajones than Rubio. She will be/has been targeted by the GOP-e and will be aborted out of office. She has too much testosterone for the Olde Guard. It’s a shame.

Non-white? Rubio IS white.

I don’t get carried away over someone because they happen to be conservative and a minority. I like Allen West very much, but his skin color is a non-issue with me. I’m not going to fawn over someone just so liberals can think I’m tolerant.

I don’t understand the infatuation with Rubio, either. If he wasn’t Hispanic, he’d be a run-of-the-mill politician who might be slightly conservative.

I think Oliver North had it when he said something about Osama being terrifying.

The GOP behavior isn't any different from the Dem behavior.

And he’s as constitutionally prohibited from the office as is the present Interloper-in-chief!
If Romney doesn’t choose a true conservative this election may be a lot closer than it needs to be as many frustrated true Conservatives will be less than enthused about voting for a team of a lib and a half!

Romney quiet on brohood for obvious reason.

The issue is jobs, taxes, jobs, spending, jobs, borrowing, jobs, regulation. On that the GOP wins.

Appearing meanspirited by running against people rather than for ideas is the way to lose.
