Marco Rubio’s sorry history on Reproductive Rights

As a member of the Florida Legislature culminating in his time as Speaker of the House (2006-2008), Marco Rubio viciously opposed reproductive freedom and supported multiple efforts to chip away at those rights in Florida. Since becoming a US Senator, Rubio’s rhetoric has become more acidic on these issues. Senator Rubio has called Roe v. Wade a […]

What *%$# is Marco Rubio doing?

As my Twitter feed indicates, while slamming other Florida Republicans recently, I’ve been pretty soft on Marco Rubio because I think, unlike the rest of the party of DeSantis and Trump here in Florida, he’s been strong in condemning Russia and Putin (we will try to have more on the party of DeSantis’ Russian love […]

The level of cognitive dissonance among Florida’s GOP leaders is stunning

The DC political press corps favorite GOPer (though this is not true of the Florida press corp who have generally tried to keep him honest), Florida Junior Senator Marco Rubio has reappeared as a national figure in the wake of this week’s tragic events. After days of silence following an attempt by one of his […]

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 […]
