Marco Rubio looks nice, speaks well but still tells the lies the GOP has been spouting for years. He doesn't offer much by way of original thought. He relies on GOP sound bites and marches to the GOP handbook, despite its not being relevant to the 21st century. The GOP position is to damn everything President Obama, Democrats and non-Christians say and their narrow-minded, backward thinking will sink them.
Repeating lies long enough doesn't make them true. Bashing the middle class constantly doesn't endear you to them. Trying to pass laws that hurt the middle class, the elderly, the infirm, children, women and generally most of the citizens in this country won't convince them you're looking out for their best interests. Up is not down and right is not left. Right is not even right, in this instance. How can one party be so 'against' everything that helps the majority of Americans?
The tragedy of the Republican Party is that it has become the party of rabid Christian, bible-thumping white men who pick and choose the parts of their bible which they think authenticates their perverse, misogynistic view of the world. Those GOP women who agree with them are from a different era when women still "had their place."
The Republicans are not even a whole party anymore. They are populated by so many Tea Party members, people who are hell bent on destroying the government, people who believe that most, if not all, of government is useless and has no place in a free society.
The Republicans/Tea Party are not interested in what's good for the country. Marco Rubio, no matter how he is packaged, can't salvage the savage attacks on President Obama, immigrants, women, the old, the young, the middle class. He just can't make it all go away, regardless of how well he speaks Spanish or tries to appear as if he cares. It's just too obvious the he and the rest of his party care only for their billionaire handlers, big corporations and getting the rest of us to pay their way.
Marco Rubio isn't the great hope for the GOP in 2016. They are just wrong for America.
