If you are wondering, Besilu Stables is owned by Benjamin Leon the founder of Leon Medical Centers located in Miami FL. One of the many South Florida rackets.

Rubio gives up on Senate:

Rubio is NOTHNG but a total phony, self-serving, bogus deceiver. Bad for this Nation, like we don't have enough of that Now.

I believe Rubio is simply trying to distance himself from the establishment and trying to show that he is also feed up with Washington. He clearly sees that Trump and Carson are in the lead because they are not career politicians and are able to criticize the entire political system. He wants to be in the same position as them. This act is his only hope of staying as a viable contender. As for Bush criticizing Rubio something tells me that he is also in on the plan. Bush knows that he is most likely done, and Rubio is plan B.

I agree. It is also likely that Rubio has been advised to skip votes in order to avoid placing the wrong vote and losing supporters as he did with immigration reform. If he is on the wrong side of a vote now, his campaign would be finished. In a CNN interview, the reporter said Rand Paul and Ted Cruz had missed at most 10 votes, while Rubio missed 59. Rubio did not dispute this.

Rubio not only missed votes, he also missed hearings on committees he was a member of. What a slacker. Collecting his paycheck and not doing the job he was hired to do. Seems Rubio has a history of helping himself financially by unethical means.

Default Florida Sun Sentinel--Rubio Should Resign, Not Rip Us Off

One of the most influential newspapers in Florida is calling on Sen. Rubio to resign his seat in the Senate because he is not doing his job. Rubio has missed 59 Senate votes since he started his campaign for president, including many on issues deemed important by Republicans who sent him to Congress.

"Two weeks ago, you took to the Senate floor to excoriate federal workers at the Department of Veterans Affairs for failing to do their jobs. You said, "there is really no other job in the country where if you don't do your job, you don't get fired."

With the exception of your job, right?"

Rubio has responded to criticism by declaring that "voting is not the most important part of the job" of being a Senator. I guess running for president is.

He's getting paid $178,000 a year plus benefits and he refuses to show for work because he does not like the Senate and has instead decided to run on a lackluster record for president.

This whiny baby deserves the public slam.

We already have a president who spends most of his time playing golf and reading from a teleprompter like a zombie. Rubio, I think, is not a particularly smart or a particularly hard working person. He's a pretty typical government employee, the type who comes to work, checks his e-mails and then spends the other 6 hours in the break room watching Maury paternity tests and drinking coffee. He just happens to be near the top of the Washington hierarchy. He sure does like to drink that water though. He absorbs it, and expels it constantly like some type of enormous sponge.

Wow indeed.

Of course, I think that the honorable thing for any such situated politician (including Senator Sanders and the others) is to resign their positions from public office if they wish to run for President. In other words, burn your bridges behind you if you desire to be President. It would certainly have narrowed the number of those tossing their hats into the ring.

Saw this on Morning Joe. Pretty good editorial. I feel Rubio has let us Floridians down as well. I think he and his handlers are trying to give himself a JFK type persona, but it's not even close.
