Sen. Marco Rubio Rips Barack Obama Statement on Fidel Castro Death … Absolutely “Pathetic” (Update: Kaepernick Booed in Miami on Sunday)
BARACK OBAMA’S PATHETIC STATEMENT REGARDING THE DEATH OF FIDEL CASTRO …
It would appear that Barack Obama never met a socialist he didn’t like. Obama commented on the death of Fidel Castro over the weekend and it was “pathetically” eye-opening. Not one mention of the tyranny and oppression that Castro and his regime inflicted on the good citizens of Cuba. Sen. Marco Rubio (FL-R) ripped Obama for his “pathetic” comments. Of course Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT-S) had no problem with the praise of the ruthless dictator. What else would you expect from a socialist.
“We know that this moment fills Cubans — in Cuba and in the United States — with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation,” Obama said in a statement. “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.”
Miami Dolphins fans mercilessly booed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick Sunday afternoon in Miami.
Kaepernick has been in the news recently after a tense exchange over the merits of recently deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro with a local Florida reporter. Miami, which has a large Cuban population, didn’t let Kaepernick forget about it.
- Now the question is who Trump’s VP pick might be. Would Rubio make a good VP?

WILL MARCO RUBIO ENDORSE TED CRUZ?
It is being reported that former GOP presidential candidate and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is close to endorsing current Republican presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. One can never get enough endorsements but one also has to wonder whether it will make a difference. If Cruz wants to catch front-runner Donald Trump and minimize establishment candidate John Kasich, an endorsement from Rubio probably could not hurt. Except for his position on illegal immigration, Marco Rubio is a pretty strong conservative. A Rubio endorsement might have meant a little more had Marco gotten out of the race before the Florida primary where he got soundly defeated by Trump We shall see what happens. In the end conservatives do need to stick together.
Marco Rubio is close to endorsing Ted Cruz, but the two proud senators — and recent fierce rivals — have some details to work out first.
Cruz has to ask for the Rubio’s endorsement, and both sides need to decide that it will make a difference, according to sources familiar with the thinking of both senators.
Rubio and Cruz, who are more friendly with each other in the Senate than they are with longer-serving colleagues, occasionally chatted and patched up their sometime-rocky relationship on the campaign trail heading into Florida’s primary Tuesday, when Rubio was blown out by Donald Trump and subsequently quit the presidential race.
The buzz about a Rubio endorsement of Cruz intensified after the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Thursday reported that the Florida senator called his Texas colleague “the only conservative left in the race.”
Rubio, who returned to work Thursday in the Capitol, told reporters “I don’t have any announcement on that today” when asked about a Cruz endorsement. Rubio indicated, though, that he might have something to say soon.
“There’s time to prevent a Trump nomination, which I think would fracture the party and be damaging to the conservative movement,” Rubio said, stressing that he’s not interested in being anyone’s vice-presidential pick or running for Florida governor.
Marco Rubio Suspends Presidential Campaign After Miserable Super Tuesday III Showing … Loses Florida Badly
MARCO RUBIO IS OUT …
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) announced he is suspending his 2016 presidential campaign on Tuesday night after he lost his home state Florida primary badly. With 98% of the precincts reporting, Trump beat Rubio 45.8% to 27% and gained all of the 99 delegates in the winner take all primary. Earlier in the day Rubio claimed that he would stay in the race if he lost Florida. Everyone with a clue, including Rubio, knew that was never going to happen. The overwhelming Trump victory was a political death blow to Rubio and thus Marco ends his bid for the GOP nomination. The political pundits will say that Rubio lost because he ran a terrible campaign, because of his robotic answers during the debate where he repeated himself 5 times and they will say its because he went out of character and attacked Trump personally with the small hands comment. They of course would be wrong as usual. Marco Rubio lost and lost badly because he lied to the American voters when he was elected to the US Senate for his stance on anti-illegal immigration and then became part of the Gang of 8 attempting to allow amnesty to illegals. What he was thing we may never know but it was the kiss of death for his political career in the Republican party. Being labeled the “establishment’s” boy also did not help Marco in an election cycle where the outsiders have dominated the race.
Marco Rubio announced he is suspending his 2016 presidential campaign on Tuesday night after a projected loss in the Florida primary.
Despite pre-primary polls that showed him trailing Donald Trump in the state, which he represents in the U.S. Senate, Rubio predicted he would “shock the country” and win Florida’s 99 delegates.
That did not happen. ABC News projected Trump will win Florida’s GOP primary, based on analysis of the vote.
“After tonight, it is clear that while we are on the right side, this year, we will not be on the winning side,” Rubio told supporters in Miami.
In the final days of his campaign, Rubio emerged as one of Trump’s staunchest critics, attacking the GOP frontrunner’s rhetoric and record while mocking his tan and the size of his hands.
“The Republican Party is not going to allow itself to be hijacked by fake conservatives and people who go around dividing us against each other,” he said at a campaign stop in the Sunshine State on Monday.
And he echoed some of those points in his speech tonight.
Honestly, I have no idea where Rubio goes from here. He should have gotten out before tonight’s terrible loss. Rejected by nearly a 2 to 1 margin in your own home state. How does he even run for governor?
