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.
