Despite his admission that he had no passion for the job as well as his sporadic attendance record, Marco Rubio appears to be on his way back into the picture as the “future” of the Republican party. Lil’ Marco has always been an ambitious twerp who learned one serious lesson from his election to the Senate – timing is everything. Despite his lack of accomplishment during his bouncing around Florida state politics he saw an opportunity to ride the anti-Obama Tea Party backlash into office back in 2010. Once elected he immediately took a dump on those who sent him to Washington to represent them because the only one who Marco Rubio truly represents is Marco Rubio. Now after weeks of buzz that he was reconsidering his choice to step off the taxpayer gravy train he is using the Orlando terror massacre as a springboard back into the game.
According to Reuters “Florida nightclub massacre prompts Rubio to reconsider political future”:
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, who announced his retirement from the Senate after ending his Republican presidential bid in March, said on Monday he would reconsider his future after being urged to seek re-election in the aftermath of the Orlando nightclub massacre.
The Florida Republican told radio host Hugh Hewitt in an interview that the worst mass shooting in U.S. history “most certainly has impacted my thinking in general, at least, about a lot of things.” But Rubio said he has not considered the rampage from a political perspective.
“When it visits your home state, when it impacts a community you know well, it really gives you pause to think a little bit about your service to your country and where you can be most useful to your country,” Rubio said.
“My family and I will be praying about all this and we’ll see what I need to do next with my life in regards to how I can best serve.”
Hewitt urged Rubio to remain in the Senate, describing the lawmaker who sits on the Senate intelligence and foreign relations committees as one of the “very few people” who know the security issues raised by Sunday’s rampage.
It’s not surprising that Rubio chose the forum of nationally syndicated R.A.T. (Republicans Against Trump) to make his announcement. Hewitt is the douchebag who last week called for rigging the Republican convention rules in order to screw Donald Trump out of the nomination next month in Cleveland and gave new live to Mitt Romney’s Never Trumper zombie brigades. With Rubio now fully recovered – at least in his mind – from the Florida primary ass-whipping that Trump gave to him you never know whether the return to the Senate is only a trial balloon and that he may be the knight in shining armor that the Trump haters have been waiting for.
While it was expected that the Democrats led by Queen Hillary would exploit the dead from Sunday’s slaughter for political gain it is somewhat of a surprise that Señor Rubio has joined the vultures feasting on the corpses. As the late, great Baltimore Sun columnist H.L. Mencken once put it “imagine a gentleman and you would have imagined everything that he was not” which sums up the Miami motormouth.
