Via Hot Air, the pride of Florida demonstrates why Clinton and the Dems put so much pressure on Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race. As with Florida Congressional District 22′s Allen West, Rubio instills fear in the hearts of progressive, identity politics players everywhere, laying to rest the misguided notion that all minorities are enthralled by the nanny state.
Making Rubio even more formidable is his own compelling life story as the son of Cuban exiles who fled tyranny and embraced freedom in the United States of America. And they didn’t ask for handouts — as Rubio explains, their dream became a better life for their children, and they weren’t above working hard as a bartender and a maid to ensure that outcome. Thus, a child of immigrants attains the office of United States Senator, all the while espousing and upholding the commonsense, conservative principles that made it all possible, thanks to our Founding Fathers and a watershed document known as the United States Constitution.
I am so proud to call Marco Rubio my United States Senator and Lt.Col. Allen West my congressman!
