Marco Rubio is no savior

Marco Rubio isn’t “the savior,” he’s part of the problem.

Marco Rubio is a fraud who reminds me of Mitt Romney. Romney has rightfully been criticized as a flip-flopped, but Marco Rubio is no better.

Rubio’s journey on the issue has been complicated too. As a state legislator from the overwhelmingly Hispanic community of West Miami, he supported legislation that would allow undocumented students to qualify for in-state tuition. After being selected as house speaker in 2005, he scuttled several Republican efforts to crack down on undocumented immigrants. The obscure book he published laying out his agenda, 100 Innovative Ideas for Florida’s Future, included three ideas for preventing identity theft and zero about immigration.

The scary part is that Rubio often seems to get a pass from the conservative media, which is likely due to two points. First, I believe many are afraid to criticize Rubio’s immigration plan for fear of being labeled as a racist. Second, some misguided souls believe that supporting this bill will magically convert millions of Hispanics in Republicans. With the current big government give-away going on, I doubt it.

The Marco Rubio Show is nothing but a charade. Hopefully, it will be exposed before he receives a nomination for President.
