Rubio is Limited Because He's a Crook

Rubio is Limited Because He's a Crook

In the summer of 2012, it was conventional wisdom inside the Beltway that Mitt Romney would not select Marco Rubio as his running mate for the simple reason that Marco Rubio is a crook. To be less concise:

Rubio charged more than $100,000 to state GOP credit cards, had racked up nearly $1 million in personal debt, and nearly had his home foreclosed on. No doubt that Rubio has plenty of assets (young, Latino, from Florida). But he also carries a lot of risk for the usually risk-averse Romney.

1. I wonder how today's Greer plea will affect Mr Rubio.

There are plenty of skeletons in Greer's closet, I imagine.

2. Danziger had a great political cartoon on Rubio over the weekend.

Can't find it, but it had a stupified Rubio giving his repsonse to the State of the Union address by saying, "No Soy Bobby Jindal."

6. I suppose for that little gift, we can be thankful,

though Jindal's Mr. Roger's impression KO'd any chance of him ever entering the national stage. Except as a joke. In one fell swoop, he became the Sara Palin of the south. That's hard to do when you have the Bushbaby living down there, too.

5. ...and he's a liar.

Here in Florida, there are so many GOP crooks and cheats it's insane: Rick Scott, Buchanan, Martinez, and Jeb of course. I just don't see how they continue to get elected. Rubio is one of the most likely to be the next lightweight paraded by the repubs...like Palin, Jindle, and Cantor...except Rubio is the most crooked of the bunch. I hope they put him on a national ticket, because I thing he will be an easy target.

7. Because he's a crook?

Who isn't, in that party? We have quite a few ourselves.
