The 555-page Marco Rubio 'oppo file': the cunningly crafted 'image' comes crashing down
Advertisements [?]
Hat tip to Alex Leary at the Tampa Bay Times for the heads-up on the release of this report.

Many in Florida have been paying attention to Rubio, his mentor Jeb Bush, and their constant string of hard right enablers in the now 14-year-old GOP state legislative occupation. And we are damn glad to see this exhaustive report rocketing into the mainstream.

Keep up the investigations. There are many more slimy, putrid rocks to dig out in Florida.

Leary writes:

July 16, 2012

American Bridge 21st Century, a Democratic super PAC, has posted a 555-page opposition research file on Sen. Marco Rubio as Mitt Romney nears a decision on his VP pick.

"Once Rubio is revealed to be neither the Tea Party champion or draw for Hispanic voters that Romney is counting on, what's left is an inexperienced freshman Senator who brings little to the ticket," the group says.

The report is mostly an exhaustive summary of Rubio's votes as a Florida House member along with his less than two years in the U.S. Senate. It doesn't appear to break any ground but rather shows the depth of which VP candidates are vetted by the opposition.


Here is the PDF of the report.

Florida, this November, it is time to clean out our state legislature of hard rightists.

This is what we get when we just look away in apathy and cling to rigid adherence to party dogma.

But WAIT! Maybe all is not lost for the freshman senator.

But, the facts never seem to matter to these people.

Meet Marco Rubio.

The unabashed self-seeker.

All dressed up and nowhere to go.
