Marco Rubio — Chickenhawk

Most of the Republican White House contenders — with the exception of Ron Paul — have been clamoring for the U.S. to attack Iran.  Now that Marco Rubio is auditioning to be Mitt Romney’s running mate, he’s jumping on the bandwagon too.

Talk about birds of a feather.  Combine Mitt Romney’s and Marco Rubio’s military experience and whaddya get?  ZERO.  I’m guessing the total amount of physical labor ever performed by these two empty suits would also add up to zero.

(And Mitt Romney says he’ll build the Keystone Pipeline all by himself if he has to.  ROTFLMAO.  “Oohhh, Ann, I had the most awful day at work.  I sprained my finger, tore my sleeve, and look, I got mud all over my $1,200 shoes.”  But I digress…)

Marco Rubio said today that the United States must “not stand on the sidelines” in the tensions between Iran and Israel:

“Our preferred option since the US became a global leader has been to work with others to achieve our goals.  But America has acted unilaterally in the past — and I believe it should continue to do so in the future — when necessity requires.”

“When necessity requires” — isn’t that a redundancy?

He added:

“The goal of preventing a dominant Iran is so important that every regional policy we adopt should be crafted with that overriding goal in mind.  We should also be preparing our allies, and the world, for the reality that unfortunately, if all else fails, preventing a nuclear Iran may, tragically, require a military solution.”

Why yes, it is just a tad “tragic” when other people’s sons and daughters get torn to shreds in an unnecessary war.

Marco Rubio:  either 1) call your recruiter ASAP, or 2) Shut The Fuck Up.

Actually, who has been Iran friend? Republicans! That's who. Reagan sold them arms. The two Bushes, together, took out Iran's biggest enemy -- Iraq. Cheney's company has made millions off of business with Iraq.

Republicans want to take out Iraq? Don't make me laugh!

Oh, and let's not forget. Ford got their nuclear insduatry started. In 1976, President Gerald R. Ford signed a directive that granted Iran the opportunity to purchase U.S. built reprocessing equipment and facilities designed to extract plutonium from nuclear reactor fuel.

Tom here's what I wrote about speakers at CPAC 2010, of which Rubio was a keynote;

Dick Armey - most inappropriately named congressman ever, voted Aye for the 2002 Authorization of Force, voted Nay on the Oath of Enlistment.

John Ashcroft - 6 Vietnam Deferments, that even surpasses Dick Cheney!

Michele Bachmann - She has made the citizens armed and dangerous and has taken a blood oath against America's Greatest Enemy, The President...

Glenn Beck - Beck is the Generalissimo of the 9/12 Army and is currently at war with the Marxists, who infest his mind.

John Bolton - "I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy" He was glad Liberals died over in Vietnam because it increased his chances with women.

Andrew Breitbart - currently deeply embroiled in a Domestic Terrorism case because he ordered his young male ward James O'Keefe to commit Watergate Jr. Oh he never served.

Robert Davi - I know what you're going to say, he's an Actor and he pretended to be a Vietnam Vet and FBI Agent in the Greatest Movie Evar, Die Hard.

Tucker Carlson - Bow Ties and floppy hair are persona non grata in the military.

Liz Cheney - shouldn't she be anti-war? It's the whole reason she even exists as Liz managed to keep her father out of Vietnam.

Ann Coulter - no comment.

Jim DeMint - he's a Republican of course he didn't serve.

Newt Gingrich - Three Divorces = Three Purple Hearts in Conservative Wisdom.

Tim Pawlenty - a typical Republican Kleptocrat, Pawlenty has been in Government since 1988, 22 years without a real job.

Mike Pence - even though nothing was going on in the late 1970's when he turned 18, still declined to serve.

Tom Price - Damn it, he's a Doctor not a Soldier!

Mitt Romney - I hear that during the Vietnam war the french peppered Mormon missionaries with baguettes daily. It was hairy.

Marco Rubio - could've served in the Gulf War, choose to go into politics as soon as he was done with law school. Isn't the lack of service and being another lawyer just what the Right claims is wrong with Democrats?

Rick Santorum - must have been adopted because his Father worked as a Doctor in the VA hospital system in the 70's, tough work with so many wounded vets. Rick didn't inherit any of his father's desire to be close to the military.

Erick Erickson - puffy faced racist Birther, was so angry that 130 Macon Georgia Police Officers wanted to unionize., Erickson stated: I’m thinking I’ll have the City Attorney draft me legislation to dissolve the police department and contract with the Sheriff to provide public safety services.

Jason Mattera - Quite Infamous amongst Generation Chicken Hawk, the Young Conservatives who are convinced America is involved in World War IV yet have no intention of risking their pasty asses.

I swear, sometimes I think we should require presidential candidates to have served in the military. It might keep them from being so eager to go to war.

Of course, John McCain and Lindsey Graham are the exceptions to that rule.

It is all about banging the drums of war for these chickenhawks isn't it? No Mr Rubio we should stand on the sidelines. Enough of the blood of our servicemen and women has been spilled. I am of the opinion that these buttnuggets never got to play with GI Joe when they were kids and think this is the shit now they can use our military in a game of Risk, where the only ones having to deal with the consequences are NOT the mucky muck hoity toities of the world.

Jerry: You're right, we've been propping them up for decades. But our Powers That Be are counting on millions of sheeple remaining unaware of this.

JR: I used to comment at rightwing blogs, but I got tired of seeing my comments either deleted or re-worded.

jadedj: Only eleetists need kollege.

Grung: Excellent description of all those sheltered CPAC chickenhawks.

J: You're right, that would hopefully cut down on these elective wars that our government is so addicted to.

Jess: LOL. Sometimes I really think these chickenhawks think they're playing Risk, and have no grasp of the reality that real people get maimed and killed from these "games."
