Rubio On Fire

 

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) announced today that he would not vote for the debt ceiling compromise working its way through Congress today.  Courtesy of First Patriots, here’s a piping hot slice of Rubio explaining his position over the weekend.

This is fifteen minutes of a man scoring one solid point after another, and it only gets better when a gargoyle rises from the shadowy recesses of the Senate to issue a challenge.  Keep in mind that the guy Rubio utterly destroys in this exchange was foisted on the American public as a serious Presidential candidate by the Democrat Party in 2004. 

The current occupant of the Oval Office would fare no better against Marco Rubio in a debate.  This performance includes no teleprompter, no childish whining, no easily disproven lies, no boasting about non-existent proposals, no focus-group-tested magic phrases like “balanced approach,” and no straw men.

“A lot of things have happened in the last 822 days, but proposing a budget is not one of them.”  Keep that in mind every time someone shoves a ticking debt clock in your face.
