Seriously? TWICE? If I read this right he did the same thing to Trump.

Cruz gives me the creeps. He's a PRAISE JEEESUUUS guy when he's in the southern Bible Belt and the bible belters swallow it hook line and sinker. Then he turns around and does this ****. He has a serious credibility problem and I think this will hurt him. GOP voters are not as gullible as Hillary supporters. Hell, Hillary is the spawn of Satan and she's winning.
He did it to Carson too.

Rubio is down to no arms, no legs ... just a mouth to continue his Monte Python "Black Knight" campaign...

I don't think it was a big deal. They reported what CNN was reporting.

This fake outrage is laughable, all coming from a bunch of Trump fanatics. Sure you are soooooo concerned about Rubio....or do you think Cruz behavior was morally wrong? How come you don't mind voting for the most morally corrupt politician Ever? I guess you care more about Marco than the thousands of people Trump has scammed with his University and projects.

For the record, the most morally corrupt politician is on the 'other' ticket - that being Hillary R. Clinton.
Followed very closely - if not tied or exceeded by, the current POS POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama .

He and his 'transparent' administration have done more corruptness than even thought possible.
But at this point, 'what difference does it make?'... only the lives of countless others - some of which respect, admire and appreciate The Constitution of the United States.... not treat it as a mere 'document'.

It's not about how someone's "feels". It's the presidency, the most or at least was until 2008 the most powerful position in the world. Putting an unethical inidividual in that position is wrong. Oh wait...

Here is the story by CNN, that CNN is standing by, without retraction or modification, about Rubio's advisors advising him to get out of the race before his home state of Florida votes next week. The story is live and posted on their website to this very minute. A story which I expect you are actually well familiar with:
Quote:
Some Rubio advisers say get out before Florida

Most of the senator's advisers agree he does not have a path to the nomination and some are advising him to get out ahead of the March 15 primary.
Sources within the campaign also say the pressure will only continue to mount following an expected disappointing showing Tuesday, when voters in Michigan, Mississippi, Hawaii and Idaho make their picks in the GOP primary. "Not going to have a great day is an understatement," one campaign source said.

On the one hand, some advisers are warning that if Rubio does poorly in his home state, it could not only hurt his presidential campaign but also his future politically, including a potential gubernatorial run in 2018 or chance to be on the ticket as a vice presidential candidate. "Cruz won his home state. If Rubio can't win his, that's a problem," one prominent supporter said.
So it appears that the assertions that Rubio's advisors are advising him to get out are sufficiently supported, denials by Rubio and his campaign manager notwithstanding.

Rubio's campaign is failing and his back is against the wall. He is desperately flailing around in one last-ditch effort to salvage his train-wreck of a campaign, which has had the Republican establishment go all-in behind him at least twice now in an effort to prop up his flacid campaign effort.

His advisers are advising him well. He is finished here. He can run for Florida Governor in 2018 if he wants. If he wins that and preferably stays for two terms, he will be well positioned to run for president again in 2024. But if he loses badly to Trump in Florida while he is a sitting Senator of that state, that will hurt him and make it a good bit harder for him to win the governor's race in 2018.

Surely this advice is legitimate as it is smart and timely. Rubio is not going to win the nomination this year and virtually everyone knows it, very likely including him. He is expected to do poorly in the four primaries tonight. After that, don't be surprised to see him step down before the debate on Thursday of this week.

There are no dirty tricks here, except from liars like Donald Trump and Marco Rubio who accuse him of the same for publishing information from a currently active report from CNN, which CNN claims has multiple sources and which they say they are "100% confident in" even after being accosted by Rubio and his campaign.

That report has been 100% totally discredited. You should be ashamed of reposting misinformation; you are no better than the career liberal hacks at CNN that generated and propagated a false report.
