Like a typical Latino hothead whose cajones have been exposed to be the size of peanuts, Marco Rubio is looking to bounce back from a disastrous showing in New Hampshire. The sweaty and entitled Señor Rubio has for the moment chucked his canned talking points and is rattling off loads of smack directed at front-runner Donald Trump. Nervous establishment donors are closely watching Robo Rubio in South Carolina to see if they can trust the feisty little Cuban to not step on his own dick again or else they’ll do their shopping elsewhere – like Bushmart.
Politico reports on El Roboto’s waving of his red cape at the raging bull in the story“A wounded Rubio goes on the attack against Trump”:
Marco Rubio has the knives out for Donald Trump.
Rubio — who is trying to regain momentum after a disastrous debate performance and a fifth-place finish in New Hampshire — went after the billionaire with gusto on Thursday.
“Donald Trump has zero foreign policy experience. Negotiating a hotel deal in another country is not foreign policy experience,” Rubio said during a town hall in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
The Florida senator has been ratcheting up his talk on foreign policy and his experience on the Intelligence and Foreign Relations committees ahead of the Feb. 20 primary in the state, where a strong national security posture is highly valued.
“National security is the single greatest obligation of the commander in chief,” Rubio said. “There is no one left in the Republican field who has better experience … than I have.”
Rubio also hit some of the other candidates who have a chance of faring well in South Carolina. “Jeb Bush has no foreign policy experience, period, and I’m an incredible admirer of him and his family,” Rubio said, adding he was thankful George W. Bush had become president but that it didn’t change the fact that the Florida governor doesn’t have credibility on the international stage.
Rubio talks like a machismo-oozing man of the world but there is a huge difference between being given years of prep by William Kristol led neocon chickenhawks as well as being the pivot man in the John McCain-Lindsey Graham circle jerk and actual hands on experience which Rubio doesn’t have either. At least Trump can be counted on to play hardball with our enemies while the Marcobot can’t even stand up to Chris freaking Christie – a man who despite exiting the race this week made Rubio into his personal bitch at last weekend’s debate.
As they say in one of those banana republics where Generalissimo El Rubio would be a better political fit than here in the USA: “Mucho ruido y pocas nueces”.
