What a quitter! Just another reason why Rubio doesn't have the strength of character to lead this country.

Rubio gives up on Senate:

Rubio gives up on Senate:
I don't think not running for reelection makes one a quitter. He shouldn't be missing votes, but let's be fair, nothing quasi-important ever gets passed by Congress nowadays. Looked like he became bitter after the comprehensive immigration plan he endorsed went absolutely nowhere thanks to the House Republicans.

He wasn't very good at that job anyway. If you can't cut the Senate, well, doesn't it seem rather silly to be running for a higher government office. I think he has realized that he just isn't cut out for government service or at least, I think most others have realized it and these comments he made are the "icing on the cake". Good-bye Rubio!

Aw, poor baby.....he became bitter when he didn't get his way. Persistence is one of the hallmarks of a strong character. Integrity means doing your job despite encountering obstacles. He had no problem collecting his paycheck, but, as the article states:

'He began missing votes. He skipped 10 percent of them in 2014 — making him one of the most absent senators, with the 88th-best attendance record, according to statistics kept by GovTrack.us. He began missing committee work, even on the subject he most identified with. In 2014, Rubio missed 34 of 68 committee hearings and meetings in the Foreign Relations committee, according to his office’s tally.'

This, in addition to his misuse of campaign funds, private real estate dealswith a politician voted most corrupt, and the fact that he has a sugar daddy at age 40 make him very unsuitable for the office of president.

Do you think he has a pimp . . . I mean, a campaign manager? He is kinda cute if you like that sort of thing.

Sheldon Adelson/Rubio will be a strong contender for the GOP nomination.

I think the fact that he can't do his Senate job speaks volumes. That his attendance record is so abysmal will definitely be used against him by his opponents on both sides of the aisle.

Sugar Daddy? What? Who is that?

Well let's see, he has the following donors, Sheldon Adelson, Norman Braman, Larry Ellison, Isaac Perlmutter, Besilu Stables, and countless influential people in Miami as his sugar daddies.

He must be counting on a VP selection for himelf or looking at 2018 FLA Governor's race, but what to do in the interim?

Faux News show ala Huckabee?
