Hey, if it was good for Sarah Palin, it oughtta be good for MEEEEE!!

I gotta book to sell and an image to create out of whole cloth! Suckers.


Yippee!

Here's the bus. (Rubio posted the picture on Twitter.) Rather opulent, but peanuts for a few billionaires such as the Kochs to lavish on the little 41 year-old self-seeker, no doubt.




Here he is on day #2 in Naples, FL:


Photo by DAVID ALBERS
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio signs copies of his new autobiography, An American Son, at the Naples Costco on Sunday, July 1, 2012.

"I think he could be a great vice president," said Linda Marszalkowski, who walked out of the store cradling five copies of Rubio's book at $26.95 each in her arms. "He's young, he exudes integrity, and I don't think you see that in many politicians today." Link



Oh, he exudes something, Ms. Willfully and Proudly Ignorant Voter. But it ain't the time-honored definition of integrity.







From the Tampa Bay Times:


(The questions asked of Rubio by the Times are bolded for ease of reading.)


July 1, 2012

.....

You question whether you entered politics too early, knowing it has been a burden on your family life. How much has that experience changed you?

I don't feel sorry for myself. I think there are other people who have it much worse; they don't control their own schedule. I have people I went to law school with and their boss is like, 'Hey can you come in Saturday to work on this case?' And they know that if they want to make partner, they are expected to come in. But their son has a T-ball game. I know people who are fighting for their businesses and have to work Sundays just to keep the thing afloat. I worry I don't always get it right.

.....

Republicans and Democrats say something needs to be done (on immigration) at a federal level, so why wouldn't you continue to press your idea and maybe broaden it?

We continue to develop the idea and work on it. I've just made an observation, which is given that (Obama) decision, it's going to be harder to get anything done before the election and harder to do it in a bipartisan fashion. As I've said repeatedly, I hope that I am wrong.

So you're not giving up on it?

I never said I was. What I said was when he made that decision I thought it was going to be harder to get something done in the short term before the election.

You oppose the full Dream Act because, among other things, you say it could encourage chain migration. Isn't your family story a form of chain migration? Your parents followed relatives who had moved to Miami from Cuba. (Those relatives sponsored Rubio's parents.)

It's important to remember my parents immigrated legally in 1956. I don't oppose family-based immigration, but I think when you discuss it in context of the Dream Act you are creating a special pathway to citizenship and using that pathway to bring in people other than the kids. I think it creates an incentive for future illegal immigration.




Hell, he doesn't have time to work on 'his version' of any Dream Act.... or anything else of value that would help Floridians. Why, he's an important freshman senator, y'all. And we just ought to be dying to read his memoirs about his mythical accomplishments in the 18 months he's been sitting in The Big Chair.



He lied to voters about his background as he campaigned for Senate.

But, we are on to him, and his deception goes back decades before he ran for U. S. Senate.


HE'S GOT BOOKS TO PEDDLE and an image to fabricate, people.



Happy July 4!
Love, Marco

2. Not enough pages, and they look inadequately soft.
I think I'll stick with Cottonelle. ;-)

4. Excuse me for a moment...
:puke: Unfortunately, puking doesn't help.

"...other people who have it much worse; they don't control their own schedule. I have people I went to law school with and their boss is like, 'Hey can you come in Saturday to work on this case?' And they know that if they want to make partner, they are expected to come in. But their son has a T-ball game."

Wow, my heart just bleeds profusely for these folks that Rubio knows. They might have to work weekends to realize their dream of making six figures.

Hey, Moran...how about this scenario:

Other people who have it much worse; they don't control their own schedule. They don't have a job, so they don't have to worry about being called in to work on Saturday. Making partner?? How the fuck does that relate to the average American trying to make ends meet?

Oh, yeah...we could all be lawyers, if only we worked hard enough.

T-ball game??? Preach it to someone else's kid. Some kid who is talented, but can't find a ride. Someone who wants to play, but doesn't have the money for a uniform. Or maybe their kid could play, if he wasn't so sick, and can't afford treatment, because the parents have no health insurance.

What a complete asshole this one is. Sorry for the "people" you have, Rubio. Life is rough.
