OKLAHOMA CITY, August 13, 2013 ― The election of Senator Marco Rubio to the U.S. Senate in 2010 was a moment of celebration for the newly formed Tea Party movement as Rubio became known as the Tea Party darling.
Rubios stump speech about his familys escape from Fidel Castros Cuba never failed to bring people to their feet. The speech reminded his listeners that America is the greatest country on earth and a beacon to the worlds oppressed.
Upon being sworn in, Rubio fought hard against Obamacare and worked to get the U.S. back on the path of economic success. He took his campaign rhetoric to the Senate floor and to news talk shows.
The federal government was wrecking the economy, and Congress had lost touch with the common people. Rubio sang the Tea Partys tune, becoming the Tea Party poster child. When Mitt Romney became the GOP candidate, Tea Partyers wanted Rubio to be the vice-presidential nominee in 2012.
Rubios stance on immigration reform has now put him out of tune with the Tea Party. His participation in the gang of eight has taken him out of grace. Rather than humbly admit error and return to the fold, he went on Rush Limbaughs radio show to urge Americans to support the Senates immigration reform bill.
A friend of Rubios from his Tea Party honeymoon stage, political pundit Ann Coulter, has attacked him for his views on immigration reform. She isnt alone, but he may not care. His role in immigration reform may signify the start of his 2016 presidential campaign, and he may have decided that the Tea Party wont get him to the White House.
The conventional wisdom is that in order to win the 2016 Presidential election, Republicans must reach out to Hispanic voters...

Maybe these fools should try promoting bills that benefit a different group such as, I dunno, US citizens??
” The conventional wisdom is that in order to win the 2016 Presidential election, Republicans must reach out to Hispanic voters...”
Conventional wisdom got us 8 years of Obama
in a word - YES
And he can bet his sweet bippy on that.
Has Rubio alientated the Tea Party?
Is Obama a Muslim?
Does a bear take bodacious Obamas in the woods?
Could Travon have been Obama’s son?
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
By the way, the headline writer can't use the word "alienated", it's racist.
He’s dead, Jim.
Stick a fork in him...he’s done!
Do they think that Hispanics are emailing and calling their congress critters advocating that illiterate illegal aliens be given amnesty?
Yep, he used the TP for his own advantage. Now he wants to be ‘the one’ who gets immigration for the GOP. Climbing the mountain of success in America with only him on his mind. POS! Let him blow his cuban cigar smoke up his latino a**.
Let's see him try it without us.
Dead to me.
