  1. Chris, I am sure you are going to be run out of the GOP for this, but I admire your willingness to stand up for what is right. Keep it up. You were right about Jim Greer and Charlie Crist long before being against Charlie was cool in the GOP.


  2. Trying to cast Rubio’s teaching postition with FIU as a rip off of the taxpayers is a little like complaining about “overpaid” college football coaches. Truth is, talent brings in what it is worth. Donors, not taxpayers, are paying the salary.

    Having Marco on the faculty will be a bragging point for many years to come.

    The professors who complain about Marco’s hiring, are merely jealous that their employment attracts little or no attention from the public.


  3. OK Kevin, fair enough. Forget about the teaching job I don’t think he deserved — save for the fact that as Speaker he sent a lot of money to the school. But for argument sake, I’ll accept your point.

    Now what say you about all his other scandals, lies, challenges with the truth, inappropriate payments, etc?

    The guy is a pathological liar.

  4. Oh to be blinded by the GOP Kool Aid, Marco’s expenditures during his last run for the Florida State Legislature were criminal, too. But, the bigger and biggest issue this time is that the Florida media failed to ever come up with this issue. Did no one think to ever check his story that he told. It was a tear jerker. Does the media look at anything? Now that those in the GOP are drinking the Rubio Kool Aid by the gallon, and see him as a Presidential candidate it is truly scary. The fact that he represents Florida as a Senator is truly a Nightmare on Elm Street or any other street in the Sunshine State.


  5. OK, So Rubio is not Perfect, Who is? Please step forward. The last US Senate election had choices. Would Suntan Charlie or Meeks vote the way you want?

    Maybe Obama isn’t so bad after all(sarc) and McLame deserved to lose. But who would you rather have as President RIGHT NOW?
    Quit whining, Man Up. We have a real FIGHT coming and it’s going to take some imperfect “soldiers” to stand on the line.

    I’ll stand with Rubio.


  6. You’re doing the right thing, Chris; hold your ground. I recall your utter disappointment with Rubio, after dealing with him on this issue. It’s a blow that reminds me never to let myself get too taken by a candidate. Yes, he appears to be outstanding, and hopefully some day he’ll come clean on this.

    But here’s what bothers me about this whole thing: Why are we talking about it? HE’S NOT RUNNING. This story, along with 2 others like it, have interestingly appeared in the press. The “birther” story that challenges his status as a natural-born citizen was truly insane. Regardless, it appears that a strangely coordinated attack on Rubio’s credibility is underway. Has anyone asked why? That’s the real story here.

    I’ll venture a guess: Despite Rubio’s ethical shortcomings, he’s still political gold. Perhaps he cheats and steals, but when he speaks to Florida et. al., he’s a mortal threat to Dems. My guess is the Left needs to discredit him as much as possible before he announces an endorsement.
