Marco Rubio is a disgusting, hypocritical, heartless, selfish, horrible excuse for a human being!!!!

He was on NPR this morning talking about the "crisis" on the border.

Basically his argument was this: back when HIS family fled Cuba, that was A-OK because they were fleeing a communist takeover of their country, and the USA could "afford" the wave of Cuban immigrants.

Now, we CAN'T afford a flood of children (even though the vast majority of them will be taken in by family members already here) fleeing gang violence because, that's "just" a social problem that the children's countries need to address themselves.

Horrific.

I am practically incoherent with rage.

Congrats, Rubio, you're a POS!!!!!

I wonder how he will attempt to square (from his comic book autobiography): his father (grand-father) being a supporter of the communist dictator that he fled from?

Further, it will be interesting to see how he handles his candidacy's pointing out the disparate US Cuba/rest of the Hispanic world immigration policies. It will only highlight that the gop picked the wrong Hispanic ... just like the gop consistently pick the wrong negro.

Taking SS money after his dad died and using it for school (as did I and my mother was very grateful), but we don't need to do that now. He got his so it is not necessary anymore.

Oh, my family was not wealthy.

well before the revolution, and for economic reasons. They weren't fleeing Communism, it hadn't arrived in Cuba yet. Documents show they came to the U.S. two and a half years earlier.

Oh - yeah; well, I suppose there are some things you just can't say even on the internet.

Carry on, please.

BTW - I suspect many of us will delight in seeing one or both the Castro twins dismantle Rubio in the near future. So far as I'm concerned, Joaquin has 'president' stamped all over him.

When you allow your anger to take control, you join their team. They are fear and hate mongers par excellence. Just see him for what he is: a hypocrite and sock puppet whore for corporate greed. Now that he's a pretty boy US senator, he's there to serve his personal ambition to climb the social and economic ladder of selfishness. His philosophy is "me first." But serving his constituents, forget about it.

So calm yourself down. You'll be a better servant of a better politics that creates more opportunity, when you have a calm resolve to make changes for the better.

it's probably more of the payoffs from the huge corps.

I still see his lips reaching for that glass of water, kind of cartoonish, every time I think of this clown.

Thanks for bringing that image back to my brain.

I heard Miami will soon be underwater, will he still have a state left to represent?
