A leak to be investigated

If Michele Bachmann sent the letter in her capacity as a member of the house intelligence committee, you're damn straight its a security issue.

Now that Rubio has more fully outed himself, it's helpful to learn from the Rubio example and remember how easily so many will lock on to whomever says the right words and appropriately conservative sayings and grant them full trust and access.

This reeks of desperation. Better way: Trust, if you must, but verify! Always verify!

Sooner or later, you'll know who/what you're dealing with. Until then, follow the Constitution and the Founders' intent.

Bachmann makes the men around her look like pantywaists (save Colonel West and, hopefully, at least a few others...).

Rubio ORIGINALLY was a Conservative, but has been bought and paid for by the Establishment Elite, if he is intending to move on up the "ladder".

So many Conservatives turn to the Dark Side, when the benefits are too great for THEM to resist....no Principles stand in the way of their power and ambition, which overtakes them.

We have only ourselves to blame in this, as the big-dollar media onslaught DESTROYS every Challenger (think Palin, Bachman, Cain, etc.)

Since when is Rubio endorsed by the Tea Party? There is no “Tea Party”, no one tells us what to think or who to vote for. The values that unit the very loosely connected people in various Tea Party groups are strict constructionist adherence to the Constitution, smaller, weaker government, promote business friendly economic climate, protect capitalism. I'm a Tea Party group co-founder, and I certainly do not endorse Rubio, because, patriotic as he sounded, he is NOT a NBC, his parents were Cubans at the time he was born.

This is only another nail in his “I’m-a-true-Conservative” coffin. For months now, Rubio has been echoing the clueless McCain on his erroneous, Hillary-supporting foreign-policy statements with regard to Libya and now Syria.

McCain went after Bachmann, so “me-too” Rubio apparently felt inclined to distance himself from her on the Huma Abeid issue, as well — though, fortgunately, not in as an egregious manner of the odious McCain.

Lessee. St. Sarah endorsed Jerk Hatch. RINO
Rubio kicked Michele when she’s down. RINO
John Roberts was too clever by half. RINO
Newt Gingrich played pattycake with Mittens RINO
Bobby Jindal’s not a NB Citizen and he’s a RINO to boot.

And then, horror of horrors,
God still hasn’t vaporized all these RINOs
So God’s a RINO too.

But FR has not sold its soul. FR harbors the only non-RINOs left on the face of the earth. We’ve vaporized every Conservative public figure on Earth and would have vaporized God if we thought we could get away with it.

So I guess FR needs to run for presydent.

So is anyone even considering the questioning of whatever governmental organization did her background investigation? All I hear are attacks on Bachmann. This shouldn't be about who asked the question, it should be about who is responsible for answering the question. Good grief, now our representatives can't even ask a simple question without being pilloried. The world seems upside down to me.

Marco needs to read the truth about McCarthy. If he isn’t already aware of the truth about him, he doesn’t belong in the US Senate. Are our kids going to be told in 50 years that Bachmann was right?

Just a general comment for all the ABO apologists on FR...

THIS is why you do not abandon your principles as a conservative. THIS is what it gets you when you vote for a ‘placeholder’ until the non-existant ‘someone better’ comes along.

When you elect people opposed to your beliefs, THIS is what happens. And if/when the Muslims manage another 9-11, it will be because these ‘non principled’ people allowed it through their moderation and willingness to cast aside principle for political expedience.

And finally, if that ‘offends’ the liberal sensibilities of the ABO types here, to goddamn bad. It’s reality and you can’t rationally deny it.

Careful.

Rubio left the Tea Party, the Tea Party did not leave conservatives.

I was one of those who supported Rubio from the day he announced. Realistically, what was our other choice, Crist?

I have since left supporting Rubio in any way when he somewhat supported the Obama move on amnesty and totally disregarded the illegal nature in which the Executive Order violated his oath as he has done on other issues like DOMA.

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.

Marco! Did you actually read Bachmann's response to the misleading letter sent out by that ________ Ellison?

Many here in Florida knew he was not a Conservative....never was a Conservative

While Rubio was Speaker of the Florida House, he repeatedly tabled and killed bills that would have limited illegal aliens from getting benefits, and, given Florida laws like border states Georgia and Alabama have. Those bills would have passed FL House and Senate...but he killed them.

Good to hear that a Tea Party member does not endorse Rubio

Could it be the “Tea Party” that is aligned to FreedomWorks (PhonyCon Dick Armey) is the one pushing Rubio?

I am getting quite disappointed w the various Tea Party. We seem to end up getting GOPers who are just as liberal as the GOPers they were to replace. Marco Rubio is no different than Mel Martinez....and Amnesty Mel probably is laughing now because Amnesty Rubio is just as big a problem

I don't understand why so many Freepers are enamored with Rubio.

It's because they mistakenly believe a Latino conservative will attract Latinos to the GOP - - you know, the way Allen West has attracted so many blacks to the GOP.

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

How is Rubio "non-white"? He is of Spanish descent. Last time I checked they were Caucasians. This "Latino" construct is essentially phony for tens of millions of them.

Think of what Rubio could accomplish if he publicly stated,

"I'd like to put these VP nomination rumors to rest once and for all. While serving as VP would be a great honor,
I'd not be able to accept the office as I am not a Natural Born Citizen.
My parents became US Citizens after my birth so by the eligibility requirements specified in Article. II. Section. 1. I'm not eligible.

The fact that the CommiecRAT Party lied about their usurper Obama's status doesn't change the Constitutional Natural Born Citizen requirement."

Sadly, you are correct. I so wanted Rubio to be true. However, he has shown, with this and other moves, that his priority is to join the “ruling class.” Only in America! At least we still have Allen West.
