Rubio should consider himself fortunate because his lies about his Republican party credit card being used for personal purchases will be long forgotten as Carson is under the gun.

Default From Schumer on Rubio

Schumer: Rubio's fingerprints 'all over' immigration bill with citizenship path | TheHill


Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) says Sen. Marco Rubio's "fingerprints are all over" a 2013 immigration bill with a path to citizenship, highlighting the Florida Republican's ties to a reform effort he has downplayed during his presidential campaign.
"He was not only totally committed, he was in that room with us," Schumer told CNN when asked how committed Rubio was to the "Gang of Eight" immigration effort. "His fingerprints are all over that bill. It has a lot of Rubio imprints."

He has basically the same senate record as Obama, and that record seems to fill the democrats with a warm fuzzy feeling.

How many did Obama have?

I'm hoping standards are rising when choosing a candidate.

You don't have to be "accomplished" just have the right backing: New 'Baby Got PAC' Super PAC to Back Marco Rubio

I encourage everyone to look at several articles when a candidate is being ripped apart by the media. You read conservative and liberal both and then make a decision on what is being said and how on target it really is. I am guessing the sharks backing Rubio will stop at nothing.

I finally put my finger on what bothers me about Rubio the most. Rubio is trying to model John Kennedy. I find it nothing more than insulting to John Kennedy's memory. Just watch his speech and physical stance. Ah, "No Rubio, you aren't a John Kennedy."

No, that's a job. An accomplishment would be something he did in that job that you could put numbers or dollars to or some big deal thing he did that won him that job.

Example of an accomplishment: I eliminated the XYZ program and as a result I saved Florida Y dollars.

Another example of an accomplishment: I implemented the RBG Plan and as a result we saw an increase of 45% in the number of kids graduating high school than the previous year.

So you're voting for Bill Gates, right?
