Marco Rubio Carefully Weighs In On Romney’s ‘Gifts’ Comment
BENJY SARLIN 3:26 PM EST, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 15, 2012
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) carefully avoided criticizing Mitt Romney for the ex-nominee's claim that "gifts" to minorities, youth, and women were responsible for President Obama's victory, telling Politico on Thursday that Romney was merely offering an "analysis to donors."
But he made clear that he was uncomfortable with the idea of characterizing voters as dependent on government, saying that "our mission should not be to deny government benefits to people who need them," but to make sure that "less people need government benefits."
Rubio added that he has "tremendous admiration for as a person" and hopes he stays active in the GOP.

was talking about Latinos too. Does Rubio believe this about Latinos? African Americans have their Clarence Thomases too ;Rubio, so you are not alone. It is not about the color of your skin but about your ideas. Whites also get the same benefits or (Gifts) as you say but that is how a Government work.
Mitt is an angry man because he don't like to see people get the same opportunities as he had and many of the people that voted for him. It is just that ,those people, shouldn't get my stuff because they are not like me.
The only problem with that, is Mitt may not be where he is today nor even his whole family if his father had not got free stuff from the U.S. government,when his father was on welfare, and got financial aid from the U.S. Government. The source came from the mouth of his own mother in an old video, when she claimed the U.S. had the best Social Services in the World. Well guess what Mitt, you may not even be alive if it wasn't for Franklin D. Roosevelt, one of the founders of entitlements in the USA. Your Party has been trying to undo it ever since.
The Era he wants is from the early 1900s back to the 1700s. Too bad Americans, are giving in the twenty first Century and you can't go back.
