Who's the Worst of the GOP White House Contenders? Marco Rubio.
By a mile. Nobody else in the GOP Clown Car even comes close; mostly because the rest of them don't have a snowball's chance in Hell of ever winning a national election.
Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina are batshit crazy. Donald Trump is too loud and obnoxious. Ben Carson??? ROTFLMAO! Ditto for “Jeb!”
Marco Rubio is every bit as Far Right, every bit as corporate-owned-and-operated, as the rest of the GOP Clown Car, but without the foaming-at-the-mouth bug-eyed craziness that would scare off Middle America. Marco Rubio COULD get elected if he wins the nomination. And that is just plain fuckin' scary.
Underneath that smiling personable Ricky Martin demeanor, Rubio is just another corporate prostitute who's being paid to pick up where George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan left off. Here's Matt Taibbi's impression of Marco Rubio in a Rolling Stone article:
“He is short but prickishly good-looking, all hair and teeth and self-confidence. He's the kind of guy that no group of men wants to go to a bar with, both because he spoils the odds and because he seems like kind of an asshole generally...There are young women in the crowd looking up at him adoringly, like a Beattle... He's so slick, he could probably sell a handful of cars at every speech...He checks all the boxes of what the Beltway kingmakers look for in a political marketing phenomenon: young, ethnic, good-looking, capable of working a room like a pro and able to lean hard on an inspirational bio while eschewing policy specifics...Rubio sells a kind of strident, bright-eyed dickishness that in any other year would seem tailor-made for roping in conservatives.”
Scared yet? Here are some of the “policy specifics” that Marco Rubio wants to eschew — at least until AFTER he wins the White House:
If you like Private Prisons — aka the Prison Industrial Complex, For-Profit Prisons, the various Kids-For-Cash scandals (Google it) — You'll love Marco Rubio.
And don't you just hate those FCC commies with their nanny state Net Neutrality? Wouldn't you love to crack down down on those municipal governments who are providing low-cost high-speed Broadband access? So would Marco Rubio.
And needless to say, Marco Rubio wants to return control of banking/financial regulations to the Wall Street thugs who have purchased him.
Be Very Afraid.
