Donald Trump now Marco Rubio’s puppet on Cuba – the hypocrisy of Florida’s Junior Senator

Donald Trump, despite his populist reputation has gradually adopted the neoconservative foreign policy of Florida’s Junior Senator Marco Rubio. Rubio is an unreconstructed neoconservative that has never met a military intervention that he didn’t embrace, even if it isn’t in our national security interests. He has never missed an opportunity to undermine our current administration’s […]

What we are reading: Marco Rubio, still seeking Tampa Bay home, has staff meet constituents at libraries, coffee shops

Somehow with all the excitement of the last few days we missed this Tampa Bay Times article until this morning.  Lots of interesting nuggets in this must-read article.

The media failed to show same outrage about Rubio’s slanderous comments about President Obama as they did about Trump’s

What we are reading: Rubio on skipping town halls: Activists will ‘heckle and scream at me

From Politico’s Marc Caputo, Senator Marco Rubio is unsurprisingly skipping doing town halls.

Marco Rubio – 15 years of selling out public education

Marco Rubio was educated in Florida’s public school and universities. A man who likes to pass himself off as a man of principle and a defender of American values (as evidenced by his “emotional” showboating during the confirmation hearings of Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State – a nominee that Rubio eventually supported) is really […]

Marco Rubio: Cowardly showhorse

Marco Rubio is a charlatan. He’s the worst kind of deceitful devious politician. Some politicians don’t have any sort of belief system or ideology. That’s not a positive thing obviously, but what is worse is a politician that will or do anything to get elected  or to get public praise or attention, but has at […]

Marco Rubio – Florida’s shame

Cuban dictator/revolutionary/leader, etc Fidel Castro passed away in the wee hours Saturday. The Castro legacy divides Floridians more than others – the large Cuban exile community in southeast Florida loathed the man while many on the left have noted that Castro was a freedom fighter against a right-wing dictatorship that was propped up by the […]

Marco Rubio’s positions in his own words: Climate Change

“Sure the climate is changing, and one of the reasons is because the climate has always been changing,” he said. “There has never been a time when the climate was not changing.””On the contrary, there are laws they want to us pass that would be devastating for our economy,” he insisted, citing the Obama administration’s […]

Marco Rubio’s own words: President Obama’s foreign policy and allegations of sedition

Below is an assortment of quotes made between December 2015 and February 2016 by Florida Senator Marco Rubio about President Obama and his foreign policy. “It’s now abundantly clear: Barack Obama has deliberately weakened America,” “He has made an intentional effort to humble us back to size.” “As if to say: we no longer need […]

Flashback: Marco Rubio claims President Obama divides America by visiting a mosque

For those who forget the lengths Marco Rubio will go to race bait, earlier this year while still seeking the GOP Presidential nomination, Florida’s Junior Senator made this claim “I’m tired of being divided against each other for political reasons like this president’s done. Always pitting people against each other. Always. Look at today—he gave […]
