MORE STATUS QUO “REPUBLICAN” NONSENSE …
|| By FITSNEWS || We’ve written previously on how U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida is two-faced on big issues … and flat-out wrong on others.
We were never going to support this status quo, crony capitalist “Republican” – and the fact he cast the deciding vote for U.S. president Barack Obama‘s rigged trade deal in the U.S. Senate earlier this year only affirmed our opposition to his candidacy.
In an opinion piece published in The Wall Street Journal, Rubio rattles off some stern rhetoric against China – and vows to dramatically increase U.S. military spending (ahem) in an effort to “neutralize China’s rapidly growing capabilities in every strategic realm, including air, sea, ground, cyber space and even outer space.”
In addition to this “neoconservative” warmongering in the South China Sea, Rubio is also vowing to reverse Obama’s “insufficient responses to economic and national-security concerns.”
“Beijing’s protectionist economic and trade policies increasingly endanger America’s financial well-being,” Rubio wrote.
Let’s rewind the tape, shall we?
Less than three years ago, Rubio wasn’t criticizing Obama’s China policy – he was supporting it, saying Obama was correct on the issue of China’s currency manipulation.
“I agree with Obama on that one,” he said at the time.
This is nothing put pure political pandering.
Rubio is reading the handwriting on the wall – which is telling him his campaign is shriveling into irrelevance as GOP frontrunner Donald Trump drives the anti-China message home with resounding success. So he’s raising his hand to say “me, too,” hoping no one will bother to examine his previous views.
What a joke …
But sadly, that’s what we’ve come to expect from Rubio.
UPDATE: Et tu, governor?
Every post deserves at least one comment –
Which cockroach will you guys support when Trump drops out?
Don’t think he will, however if such happens will go with Bush
All these Republicans are scrambling to do or say ANYTHING to steal some attention from The Donald.
The The Don!!! As in Don Trump. Don Jefe.
Trump is the King of Crony Capitalism, for himself. Rubio still had debt from college loans a few years ago.
Ha! College is for losers!
He’s getting a job at the Waffle House. Don’t need a degree and he waffles all the time.
Must be. Hillary said her and Bill were broke when they left the White House.
Then they got that sweet donation from The Donald, and life was good.
Being a troll is fun!
Wait, he agreed with Obama on something? He is dead to me. Unless he repents and kisses the feet of Koch. Oh, wait. He did that. Ok he is no longer dead to me.

Hey I started all this China stuff!
Who is this Cuban fella trying to stir up all this trouble?
You know I bet Castro had his parents come to America and have a kid to undermine my policies!
And No I’m not paranoid.Never have been!
He’s in good company at least. Trump has had quite a few massive flip flops of his own over the past few years. Political pandering, indeed.
which is telling him his campaign is shriveling into irrelevance – It’s shrinkage, shrinkage I tell you. The pool at the Iowa Econo-lodge was cold.
He’s gonna take on China? That’s what the WTO is for and why their a member. Suddenly all these GOP foreign policy cooperation achievements from the last decade we throw out and become “tough guys.”
Why doesn’t fits report that Trump wants to send group troops to fight ISIS or that he supports passage of the Iran nuclear deal?
Who are you shilling for? Trump is opposed to the Iran deal, . I am guessing you are a Koch servant.
Though they’re rivals on the campaign trail, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are teaming up for a joint attack on President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
The Texas GOP senator’s campaign announced Thursday that he’s invited Trump to join a rally planned at the Capitol soon to pressure lawmakers on opposing the nuclear agreement. The rally is sponsored by Tea Party Patriots, Center for Security Policy, and the Zionist Organization of America.
“We are thankful for all their hard work on this effort and will have more details on time, date, and location as they are finalized,” the Cruz campaign said.
Trump hinted that an event was coming earlier Thursday, telling supporters at a campaign event in South Carolina: “I think we’re going to do something next week or the week after about the Iran pact” in Washington.
“We’re going to have a tremendous crowd come out,” Trump promised.

Thumper,are you drinking this morning? :)
I am a Trump supporter, but if Trump hooks up with Cruz he will lose me. Cruz was born in Canada and the son of a former communist, who entered the US illegally. I will never vote for him. Cruz should not even be a citizen, and he definitely is not a natural born citizen. We need someone from this country.
Yeah but what about Rubio?
Howard Hunt told me one time that Castro had this plot to send a bunch of Cubans over here to have kids and then when they got older to screw up this country!
No I’m not paranoid,never have been!
It’s funny how the liberal media is trying to kneecap all Republicans, disquakifying them because they allegedly agree with your guy, Obama.
And in the next breath, you tell us how Hillary is a LOCK because Obama has the country in such great shape,
You sure a bunch of confused idiots. (:
