Marco Rubio vs. Marco Rubio

Marco Rubio — the teabaggers’ Great Hispanic Hope.  Rightwing demagogues can spend four years bashing those swarthy immigrants who’ve ruined our country.  They can conjure up all sorts of ugly ethnic stereotypes to get their inbred audiences all fired up.  And then — Presto! — four years of race-baiting will be magically undone when Marco Rubio gets picked to be Mitt Romney’s running mate.

And now it turns out — there are TWO Marco Rubios.  There’s Marco Rubio the tight-fisted fiscal conservative.  He’s watching out for YOUR tax dollars.  Social Security and Medicare have created a nation of dependent helpless parasites, and Marco Rubio will stand up for America and rescue her from these incentive-sapping nanny state bureaucrats.

And then there’s Marco Rubio the reckless irresponsible spendthrift.  His own mortgage is underwater.  And after being audited, he owed the IRS $16,000.  That’s because he had been “using his party credit card for personal use.”

How’s that “personal responsibility” thingy workin’ out for ya?

Even worse, Rubio has eclipsed Jeb Bush as the Number one Hispanic favorite.

The GOP should take it's cue from the Meg Whitman collection here in California when they found out she abused her mexican maid, they rallied for Jerry Brown. They do worse if they ran Clarence Thomas to get the black vote.

The angrier they get, the more they will be willing to overlook this kind of hypocrisy and dishonesty.

So far he has embellished the story about his parents coming to the US from Cuba, and he isn't telling the whole story about his own spending. Let's see what else can be dug up on him during the next few months. There is probably a whole lot more.

I still think Nikki Haley will be the GOP VP nominee. But as long as their VP candidate is not thoroughly vetted (like last time), whoever they pick is fine with me! 8-)

JR: Shocking, no?

Erik: The GOP probably dismisses California as just some weird place that's full of fruits and nuts, not Real 'Murcans.

Snave: Nikki Haley is a likely choice (I remember you did a post about that), along with Chris Christie. Rubio's autobiography -- where it turned out his family left Cuba before Castro took over -- isn't going to help his credibility.

I too hope they don't thoroughly vet their VP nominee. Sarah Palin 2.0 -- works for me.

Wow...you really are an idiot, Lisa. You have no idea of the level of scrutiny and investigations key positions in government are subject to do you? (That was a rhetorical question, so no need to stress your brain cell).
