Republicans are ALWAYS trying to negate the votes of SOMEBODY they DO NOT LIKE…
They’ve done it for decades to black people, Asians, Hispanics – especially poor, disenfranchised urban minorities who vote Democrat. So it pleases me greatly to see them trying to do it to their OWN people NOW.
My question is: WHY is the GOP Establishment trying to negate the vote of their own republican voters?
They’re focusing on Trump, instead of focusing on the people voting FOR Trump!
It’s no wonder these disenfranchised republicans are angry. The GOP “establishment” is STILL not getting it. These voters who are supporting Trump LIKE what Trump is saying and whatever it is that they think Trump stands for.
But the clueless GOP “Establishment” just announced that the GOP is going to pour millions into a new super PAC – The “Our Principles” (snigger) PAC – to derail Trump. Guess who is going to run it? Tim Miller, the former communications director for the Jeb Bush campaign. So we already KNOW how successful that will be!
But to think, that after all these people have voted, and spoken, the GOP is planning to derail the person they voted for! Well THAT will go down well. I can already see these Trump supporters rushing to vote for whomever the “establishment” decides to choose for them!
I cannot STAND Marco Rubio! I call him Marco No Polo!
Why, you ask?
Because point number one, he is UNGRATEFUL:
Marco Rubio could have told the Republican “Establishment” :
“Yes, I know you want me to run as your candidate for President…to be the republican party’s nominee for 2016. But I have to say No. It’s not that I don’t want to run, but I’d be running against my friend and mentor Jeb Bush. I was his protege and I don’t feel right going up against him. I am still young. In 4 years I’ll be 48 and in 8 years I’ll be 52, still young enough to run for president. Plus as a 2-term Senator with no executive experience, if Jeb wins, I can get a position in his administration which will broaden my experience and build my credentials.”
Then, Rubio would come out smelling like an angel (however angels smell) and Rubio would have the eternal devotion and support of the Bush family and their backers/supporters/political machine so that when he did make a run, he’d be very well-positioned indeed!
But no, blinded by equally blind ambition, Rubio rushes ahead, and competes with Bush to be “the” Establishment candidate; then while professing LOVE for his mentor, he turns around and attacks poor Jeb, effectively derailing Bush’s stuttering campaign and earning the wrath (eternal) of the Bush family and their supporters.
Yep, I don’t think the Bush family loves Marco very much…and neither do I or the voters in Florida!
Point number 2: His position on Immigration.
You can go back in time and read posts I did when Marco, NO Polo, was part of the Gang Of Eight Congressmen working on Immigration Reform. But the moment, nah, the nano-second Rubio decided that making a run for President was in his future, he did a 180-degree.
Now he has the AUDACITY to insist that HE will END President Obama’s Executive Order on Immigration called DACA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It allows the kids of undocumented immigrants in the USA to get a Social Security number and work permit…that they renew about every 2-years. The majority of these young immigrants are Hispanic, like Rubio. Many entered with their parents 10, 15 years ago when they were toddlers. However, Marco now says, unequivocally, that he will end DACA – that DACA is unconstitutional.
How about the U.S. ENDING the concept that as soon as an ILLEGAL Cuban IMMIGRANT touches U.S. soil he or she is GUARANTEED asylum. THAT needs to end, Rubio?!
See Reuters article: Time to end special privileges for Cuban immigrantshttp://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/01/05/time-to-end-special-privileges-for-cuban-immigrants/
And finally, I dislike Rubio for his plasticity, his programmed responses that make me see him as a younger version of Mitt Romney. HE is Romney 2-point-0!
So go ahead Rubio, hire someone to break Trump’s knees so you can get the nomination…
Apparently when Rubio speaks at debates and Town Halls and other gatherings, the world watches and hears him, but Trump has apparently put a 6-month delay on U.S. TV’s, so voters are NOT hearing Rubio, they can only hear Trump….and THAT’s why they’re not voting for Rubio.
Naturally, voters just LOOOVE what Rubio is saying, they support all his policies wholeheartedly, they just Looove the fact that he is the “Establishment” candidate especially as those people voting for Trump Looove the ESTABLISHMENT SO MUCH…
But that Donald Trump, he is just STANDING in Rubio’s way – Rubio’s anointed way. How dare Trump!
And if Beyonce or Lady Gaga go away, I will get a recording contract. Yep, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, heck you too, Sam Smith – just go away so people can buy those records I will make – soon as you go away!
Oh, and Rubio – any voters you chased from Trump went to Ted Cruz…ha ha! HA!!!
Hey Marco, if the people won’t follow…?
