Political Make Believe

rubio(Community Matters) I’m not a fan of Democrats or Republicans who fatten at the public trough – even less so when they then espouse hypocritical rhetoric. To my R friends, combined with his made up bio –  I wouldn’t put all my eggs in this basket.

What does David Plouffe say about Rubio?

The Hispanic voters in Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico don’t give a damn about Marco Rubio, the Tea Party Cuban-American from Florida. You know what? We won the Cuban vote! And it’s because younger Cubans are behaving differently than their parents. It’s probably my favorite stat of the whole campaign. So this notion that Marco Rubio is going to heal their problems – it’s not even sophomoric; it’s juvenile! And by the way: the bigger problem they’ve got with Latinos isn’t immigration. It’s their economic policies and health care. The group that supported the president’s health care bill the most? Latinos.’
