2016 National Football League MVP Cam Newton was exposed as a phony in a disastrous baby seal clubbing in the Super Bowl on Sunday and Marco Rubio is suffering the same fate. Newton’s fall from grace was helped along by a relentless Denver Broncos defense that outed him as a front running choker but the “Kennedyesque” Rubio’s imminent flameout is entirely self-inflicted. The sweaty south Florida pepperpot did it again on Monday while hitting the hustings in New Hampshire by reinforcing the Marcobot meme he earned after repeating scripted and rehearsed talking points in Saturday’s GOP debate. While Rubio’s handlers flew into damage control mode over Saturday’s gaffe and their candidate doubled down on the virtues of being a Bill Kristol programmed automaton, the ambitious youngster flubbed it again.
As reported by the Washington Post “Marco Rubio has another repeat glitch in New Hampshire”:
Marco Rubio delivered his closing argument in New Hampshire Monday night — and gave his opponents more fodder for attacks in the process.
Appearing in Nashua at his final campaign rally before Tuesday’s Republican presidential primary, the Florida senator made a point that he often makes on the campaign trail about instilling values in children. Then, he made it again, using nearly identical words. This came just two days after Rubio took heavy criticism for repeating himself in a televised debate. He appeared to realize that he was repeating himself toward the end of his Monday remark.
Here’s his exact quote, followed by a video of the exchange:
“We are taking our message to families that are struggling to raise their children in the 21st Century, because as you saw, Jeanette and I are raising our four children in the 21st Century. And we know how hard it’s become to instill our values in our kids instead of the values they try to ram down our throats. In the 21st Century, it’s become harder than ever to instill in your children the values they teach in our homes and in our church, instead of the values that they try to ram down our throats in the movies, in music and in popular culture.”
Rubio’s stump speech has been criticized as not changing much from venue to venue and it is easy to see why given that it’s a hodgepodge of strung together focus group tested buzz words and applause lines as is evident with the candidate’s “values” riff. If Queen Hillary somehow manages to survive or more appropriately if the Clinton political machine is able to bump off the dogged Bernie Sanders -which they ultimately will do – Rubio’s inability to think on his feet will result in him being gutted like a deer by the bitch on wheels. If the GOP doesn’t want to put the Clinton crime family back into the White House then they had better start rallying behind Donald Trump or Ted Cruz instead of a poseur like Rubio.
