  • Rubio Doesn’t Realize His Energy Policy Has Already Been Enacted (Oil Export - Missed Vote)

    The Daily Caller ^ | 02/29/2016 | Rachel Stoltzfoos
    For almost three months the U.S. has been able to legally export crude oil, but Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio is still campaigning on lifting the ban. Rubio told supporters he would lift the ban as president at a private fundraiser in Texas Friday, and his campaign website has an entire page devoted to the need to lift the ban. “I would also allow American oil producers to be able to export,” Rubio said, when asked what he would do about poor oil prices as president. “Right now we’re not allowed to export.” Congress lifted the ban in December...

    Monday on the campaign trail in Reno, NV, Republican presidential candidateSen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% said if his opponent Donald Trump becomes the nominee, the GOP cannot win in November, because half of the Republican Party “hates” him. Rubio said, “We can’t win if we nominate someone, if we nominate someone that half of the Republican Party hates. We are going to be fighting against each other all the way to November. I don’t care how much you may think they’re funny or how interesting they may sound. If we nominate someone that 40 to 50 percent of our party can’t stand, we...
  • Report: Mitt Romney to Endorse Sen. Marco Rubio for President

    The Moderate Voice ^ | February 21, 2016 | Janet Shan
    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will endorse Sen. Marco Rubio, the Huffington Post reports. The details of the endorsement are being worked out. It's ironic since Romney, who was largely an absentee governor in the last nine months of his administration, is endorsing someone who didn't bother showing up for work in the Senate that much. "Romney spent the day in Utah on Saturday and could potentially be in position to bestow his blessing upon Rubio before Tuesday's Nevada Republican caucuses-a contest that Romney won easily in both 2008 and 2012." "Romney's backing will provide Rubio with the highest-profile endorsement...
  • Marco Rubio Is Plenty Conservative

    National Review ^ | December 29, 2015 | Jim Geraghty
    It is now axiomatic that Marco Rubio is the "establishment" favorite in the 2016 Republican primaries, due for a collision with a conservative alternative such as Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, or Ben Carson. But if Rubio really represents the new GOP "establishment," then the fight is over and the conservatives won. Despite infuriating many grassroots conservatives by pushing the failed Gang of Eight immigration-reform bill and advocating a path to legalization, Rubio has an indisputably conservative record as a senator. This is a man who has a lifetime ACU rating of 98 out of 100. A man who has a...

    It wasn’t long ago that conservative proponents of comprehensive immigration reform were insisting that the idea is popular among Republican voters. In 2014, the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin told us, “nope, immigration reform [isn’t] toxic” and that “the anti-immigration forces are loud but in the distinct minority” within the Republican party. To be fair, Rubin and others of the same view backed up their claim with poll data, but they didn’t persuade me. I remembered how, during the 2012 primary season, Republican presidential candidates, whose polling operations have an enormous interest in being right, treated immigration reform as “toxic” indeed....
  • The Rubio Unlimited Muslim Immigration Bill: Are GOPe Fools or Traitors?

    Senate bill 153, the Immigration Innovation Act (or I-Squared), led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), would allow for virtually unlimited Muslim immigration into the United States. Several of Rubio's most prominent financial backers are among the bill's boosters. Rubio's campaign theme, "A New American Century," employs a euphemism commonly used to describe demographic transformation of the United States brought about by immigration. A recent Pew Research report found that "nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) and most in Iraq (91%) and Pakistan (84%) support sharia law as official law." Yet in the last five years, the U.S. has issued 83,000...

    Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, on Friday defended his decision to skip a major vote in the Senate that afternoon to fund the government through September, and he took a swipe at a GOP rival who called on him to resign from Congress.In an interview with CBS News' Face the Nation host John Dickerson, Rubio was asked to respond to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, who told Politico Friday that Rubio should resign from the Senate after missing the critical vote. "Look, I'm running for president," Rubio told Dickerson in Dubuque, Iowa ahead of his town hall. "We do our job everyday....

    Marco Rubio, who hates his job, should follow John Boehner's lead and resign. After five years in the U.S. Senate, Marco Rubio does not like his job. A long-time friend told The Washington Post "he hates it." Rubio says hate might be too strong a word, but he sure acts like he hates his job. Rubio has missed more votes than any other senator this year. His seat is regularly empty for floor votes, committee meetings and intelligence briefings. He says he's MIA from his J-O-B because he finds it frustrating and wants to be president, instead. ... Sorry, senator,...

    Marco Rubio (R-Florida) listens to a question during a campaign town hall meeting in Derry, New Hampshire Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) is slightly turning up the heat on presidential rival Donald Trump over the Republican front-runner's controversial illegal-immigration statements. In an interview that aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," Rubio said that the way Trump speaks about immigration is "absurd," and questioned whether the real-estate mogul actually believes his own rhetoric. "His rhetoric is a little louder, but if you think about his position on immigration six months ago, his position on immigration six months ago is nothing...

    The United States is being deluged with illegal immigrants, spurred on by the hope of amnesty. In response, conservative lawmakers have introduced a wide array of legislative proposals to clamp down on illegal immigration. Breitbart News can now exclusively report that, despite Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)80% ’s campaign rhetoric, the presidential hopeful hasn’t cosponsored a single one of these immigration enforcement proposals, nor introduced any of his own in the two years since he was the very public face of the Gang of Eight in the Senate.

    Republican presidential contenders Florida Senator Marco Rubio and former Texas Governor Rick Perry said Trump, with his latest bombast, had demonstrated he was not fit to be president. At an Iowa candidate forum on Saturday, Trump dismissed Republican Senator John McCain’s reputation as a war hero, saying the navy pilot was merely taken captive after being shot down in Vietnam and “I like people who weren’t captured.” “I will say what I want to say,” Trump said on Sunday, claiming a strong record of supporting veterans and accusing McCain of failing them in Washington. “I will do far more for...

    Despite billions of dollars in new Border Patrol agents and fencing, the Senate’s immigration bill will still only stop between a third and half of all illegal immigrants, according to the latest analysis the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday morning. Backers have said they guaranteed that the bill, which passed the Senate on a 68-32 vote last week, would stop a new wave of illegal immigration, which they said was the necessary precondition for legalizing the current illegal population. But the CBO’s analysis says illegal immigration will continue and be at least 50 percent of what it would otherwise have...

    (A billboard on I-75 in Ocala) An anti-immigration reform group has put up a billboard on I-75 in Ocala attacking Sen. Marco Rubio for promoting "amnesty." "When 20 million American citizens and legal workers are unemployed or desperately trying to find full time jobs it is both callous and irresponsible for Florida Senator Marco to sponsor an immigration bill that will flood the labor market with 33 million foreign workers over the next ten years," said Jack Oliver of Floridians for Immigration Enforcement. Oliver is citing a study prepared for Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who has been the leading...

    NEW YORK — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is moving swiftly behind the scenes to lock down some of Wall Street’s biggest donors ahead of the 2016 presidential race. In recent weeks, the rising GOP star and possible 2016 hopeful has quietly met with some of the most powerful GOP backers in the world of high finance. The roster includes Blackstone Group Chief Executive Officer Stephen Schwarzman, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. CEO Henry Kravis and senior executives at Goldman Sachs and Barclays Capital among others. Rubio has gotten backing from big Wall Street titans before, notably hedge fund manager and...

    There is nothing the liberal establishment hates more than members of the minority groups it considers its political chattel who step off the grounds of the progressive plantation. And right now, it is beginning a long-term de-legitimization campaign, with its media overseers fully engaged, because that Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have dared to forget their place. The liberal establishment is driven not just by anger. It’s driven by fear. It’s easy to see why the media blew up the story of Marco Rubio’s radical decision to take a drink during his state of the union response – he gave...
