How Rubio laid the smack down on Jeb last night

I didn't get to watch the debate, so when I read this, it made me extremely happy:


"When you signed up for this, this is a six-year term, and you should be showing up to work," Bush said, turning to his former mentee in the Florida legislature, who was standing right next to him by virtue of where the polls stand right now. "You can campaign or just resign and let someone else take the job."

This has been in the news for days, and Rubio was clearly ready for it. Squaring his shoulders and widening his stance, he immediately blasted back that Bush was making something out of nothing.

Bush is modeling his campaign comeback off 2008 nominee Sen. John McCain, is he not, Rubio asked with lawyerly precision. Well, McCain missed a lot of votes, Rubio went on, his voice rising over Bush's half-hearted objections.

"I don't remember you ever complaining about John McCain's vote record," Rubio said.

He then added: "The only reason why you're doing it now is because we're running for the same position, and someone convinced you that attacking me is going to help you."

Mic drop.

He just doesn't know it, yet.

5. The Party Bosses are pushing him cuz his Wife is Mexican

I'm sure she's lovely but he just isn't a good candidate.

If the party just wants someone Hispanic on the ticket pick a real one like Rubio or Cruz

7. That whole scene was 666% staged

Rubio has been Jeb's personal protege and a wholly owned Bush Crime Family puppet from the beginning. There was a big meeting of the Bush Crime Family last weekend, and no doubt that Jeb's fading campaign was probably the subject matter of the discussion.

Rubio's got no chance at all of getting the nomination, but he might be second banana to whomever the Kochs decide they want in the top slot, but they need to spin his image as being "opposed to Jeb" for the theatrical appearance of it, as far as the rabidly anti-incumbent base goes.

In reality, Marco's still the same puppet he always was.
