Geez, I hate it when I've been duped! You know--when you put your trust in someone and they turn out to be somebody completely different.
I found out about Marco Rubio through talk radio; and as I recall, I even sent him money during his primary bid against Charlie Crist. I heard him speak at CPAC and thought--this guy has presidential potential. Man was I wrong!
His support--no, his initiation--of a immigration bill has negated any chance of him ever becoming president (at least as a Republican). As we saw with Romney, if the Republican candidate doesn't have the full support of the conservative base, victory is not possible.
I don't know what's more disappointing--that Rubio has turned out to have no backbone or that he is so stupid that he thinks legalizing illegals will help the Republican party get votes.
The good news is that contrary to the popular phrase--all politics are no longer local. Rubio's election with the financial support from conservatives around the Country is proof of that. With the Internet, we can easily find out about who is running for office in the most remote parts of the U.S.--and we can donate online to the candidate or his/her opponent.
