Will Sen. Rubio Flop After Flipping?

Senator Marco Rubio was hired by a bunch of conservative voters in Florida. For a while he talked the talk and walked the walk. He had a lot of promise. He’s a freshman Senator and conservative people watched him and said things like, “He could be our next President”.

Then he joined the ‘Gang of Eight’. He was the lone conservative among them. There were four far-left Democrats, three far-left Republicans, and Senator Rubio. He got pulled into the progressive mentality.

Somehow he has realized that it’s going to cause him trouble come reelection time. Ace of Spades has put a fine point on it:

Rubio Takes To Senate Floor To Claim He’s Still A Conservative

Why is Rubio sounding so defensive?

Hint 1: Rasmussen: Rubio had 73% favorable rating among Republicans in February. Now 58%. Very favorables down 44% to 21%.

Hint 2: Former Alaska governor and tea party darling Sarah Palin said Sens. Marco Rubio and Kelly Ayotte better watch out come election time: Voters angry with their support of an immigration bill seen as a cave on amnesty will likely voice their displeasure at the polls.

“I think that they should be challenged,” Ms. Palin said on Fox News radio. “I don’t have a problem with heated debates and contested primaries where they have to answer to constituents regarding their flip-flopping.”

So, the question, Will Rubio flop back to acting like a conservative? Will anybody believe he’s sincere if he does?

Nope. He has shown the weakness of his convictions.

    If you have to go out and make an argument that you are a conservative, you are probably not a conservative.

    he lost me weeks ago and Paul Ryan lost me last night talking about how we can’t secure the boarder without creating a path to citizenship fists. they are not mutually exclusive.

    Rand and Cruz and Goawdy (spelling?) have my last remaining bits of faith in any gov’t officials. but i would not be surprised if one of them caves on a critical issue, though i sincerely hope that is not that case.

      How about Iowa? How frickin’ schizophrenic can you get? Year in and year out for decades we have sent paleo-conservative Chuck Grassley and crypto-Marxist Tom Harkin to the Senate. They cancel out the vote of the other on every issue that matters. Iowa’s Senatorial delegation is null.

    I think he’s a bonifide junior mcstain. Remember when Lieberman “went straight”. My @ss.
