Miami and New York
I’m seeing this narrative pop up in multiple places in the Pool Boy campaign postmortem. Schumer conned him into being the other name on the actual legislation and also one of the eight in the Gang Bangers of eight, only because Schumer wanted to ruin his Presidential prospects.
Schumer is plenty Machiavellian, I’ll grant you that. And he’s got more brain pains than Rubio, I’ll also grant you that.
But Marco Rubio was 42 years old in 2013. He wasn’t some teenager, he was a grown man and a middle aged one at that. And he’s not exactly mentally retarded.
I’m also hearing Rubio-sycophant excuses that he fell for the reasoning in the Romney postmortem RNC autopsy. Fell for the reasoning? I knew from one microsecond after that autopsy was released that it was donor-driven political pseudoscience. To be more frank, I knew what the autopsy would contend and why it was going to be wrong once I heard the RNC was performing an autopsy, because I knew who was doing the autopsy. And I’m not a United States Senator, though I was one election away from being a staffer for one. Yet, Rubio himself supposedly couldn’t see through all that?
Rubio signed on with Schumer and the Gang Bangers because he’s an open borders no borders open immigration advocate, simple as that. Nobody conned him, because nobody had to.
