Yesterday Marco Rubio issued a rebuke to Newt Gingrich for claiming that Mitt Romney is just like Charlie Crist, an obvious attempt to manipulate the minds for Floridians who chose Rubio instead. Now today Rubio has ripped Gingrich for an extremely dishonest Latino ad stating that Romney is “Anti-Immigration”. Here are the details below:
Sen. Marco Rubio scolded Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign over a Spanish-language radio ad that accuses rival Mitt Romney of being “anti-immigrant”
“This kind of language is more than just unfortunate. It’s inaccurate, inflammatory, and doesn’t belong in this campaign,” Rubio told The Miami Herald when asked about the ad.
“The truth is that neither of these two men is anti-immigrant,” Rubio said. “Both are pro-legal immigration and both have positive messages that play well in the Hispanic community.”
Rubio’s sharp rebuke comes a day after he subtly corrected Gingrich for comparing Romney to former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, branded by conservatives as a turncoat who left the party before Rubio beat him in 2010.
The criticisms from someone of Rubio’s stature in the Republican Party comes as polls show a near-even race, albeit with Gingrich surging.

Seems kinda pointless considering Cubans are as anti-immigrant as anyone else.

Yes, and therein lies the big difference that some do not want to understand.

It's Armageddon for the Republicans. The establishment is bringing everyone they can (Dole????) to a podium to denounce Newt. It's a battle royale for the soul of the party. From the looks of the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll tonight, the righties are winning. Newt is up by double digits nationwide and Mitt's favorable ratings are in the tank. And this is before his falsified disclosured came to light. Mitt could be done. Stick in the fork?
