...who has learned the appropriate things to say to a conservative audience.
I started out liking what he had to say, but then he started down the amnesty path.
I've since listened and watched with a more critical ear and eye and, while I do appreciate his votes for things I believe in, I would not support or vote for him if I lived in Florida due to his push for amnesty. I simply do not trust him now.
No way he'd ever get my vote for VP or President, because, while he is an American citizen, he's not a NBC. (Born in country to citizen parents)
The red flag for me was when Jeb Bush & all the freepers who swore up and down that Mel Martinez was a solidly conservative "rising star" and "a Cuban-American who is against illegal immigration" said the SAME thing about Rubio 6 years later. In both cases, the MOMENT their candidate announced for the Senate, we were supposed to get aboard with their candidacy and not research or look into their record.
The one major difference was the race quickly evolved into Rubio vs. Crist, so we were left with no choice but to back Rubio.
There is only one criteria that I use to decide if I vote for someone. If Hannity or Coulter praises him, I don’t vote for him.
