By quitting his job in the Senate he is reaching out to the majority of voters who don't want an establishment candidate. What better way to become an outsider like Trump and Carson who are dominating in the polls, than to leave Congress, which has single digit approval ratings?

Some of these big endorsers don't think Trump and Carson will be around after the first couple of states......and that Rubio and Bush will be there in the end on the GOP side. Heard that tidbit on Faux today.....good news for those of us heavily against Bozo Trump..........

Rubio will go the way of Palin. No one likes a quitter.

Rubio's wife is also on the gravy train: working for the "charity" that only made one donation (of $250)

The more I think about it, the more I realize that Rubio is acting like a petulant child. He hates being in the senate and wants to quit. So instead of putting his effort into doing the best job he can before his term ends, he refuses to properly do his job. It's like the kid who skips school because he hates it.

Imagine if any of us were to discover that we hated our job and did what Rubio is now doing. We would be fired if we refused to do the job and didn't show up anymore.

I was never a fan of Rubio's to begin with but after reading the article, I don't ever want to see him as president. What happens if he gets elected and decides that he doesn't want to be president anymore? Will he refuse to do his job and not show up for meetings?

Well, that makes as much sense as anything else to explain this. But Rubio already had enough outsider credibility as the non-wealthy son of Spanish speaking immigrants. And he hasn't even been in the Senate long enough to be considered part of the establishment.

He was poised to become the frontrunner when the actual establishment finally gets around to discrediting Trump and Carson. But with this move he may be blowing it.

I had to look up Besilu Stables to see if that's a real person or a character on a soap.
