Rubio follows fellow Republican nomination aspirants Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, both of whom signed the pledge last week. His move could put fellow Floridian mentor-turned-rival Jeb Bush in a difficult position in the brewing 2016 presidential contest.

“Read my Latin lips...”
Heard that before, not willing to take him at his word.
That’s advisable, since the president is not empowered to raise taxes.
We heard that line from a RINO before.
but how will he pay for amnesty and huge lump sums for La RaRaraararararar then
When something has become a joke, it’s better not to claim it.
By cutting your Social Security and Medicare.
“Leer mis labios, no hay nuevos impuestos.”
How is he gonna pay for amnesty without raising taxes?? lol
It has not stopped Our Glorious Leader Obama from doing things that the president is clearly not empowered to do.
that’s good right? we are rooting for Cruz so if Rubio and Jeb split rino vote that’s good. I think. but jeboff has 100milion and that scares me. should it?
I will not care what happens to this country anymore if jeb is nominated.
don’t kill me but Rubio MIGHT not do too much damage if he wins the nomination.
I will vote for CRUZ!!!, Walker is ok, Rubio if I must. Jindal is not realistic this time around but I would vote for him.
don’t know much about the chick except she makes a great attack dog and can say things the guys cant. let her keep attacking and then give her job in administration
not in a million years for hucksterbee jeboff, paul, Krispy crème,linda graham, santorum,
Bend over, friends, another “no gnu taxes” candidate. I got clobbered last time one of those was elected.
That is never a smart thing for any politician to promise, from any party. Better clarify that statement Marco, and quick. I can see a MSM reporter baiting a rhetorical trap for Marco during an interview, and him stepping right into it.
Heh. Pretty much what I was thinkin’. He’s channeling GHWB.
A real conservative never has to say this. It comes with the package.
1) Because it is run by the scumbag Grover Norquist
2) Because it's a stupid pledge. What we need is tax reform. Any worthwhile tax reform will tend to lower rates overall, but also eliminate lots of deductions. Some of those people currently taking advantage of the deductions will end up paying higher overall taxes and whine and complain that the tax reformer violated his pledge.
Simplistic pledges sponsored by scumbags should not be entered into.
