|Idiot or shameless Political whore?|
With Donald Trump, carnival barker extraordinaire, and the very scary Ted Cruz still leading him in the polls in Iowa, Marco Rubio is releasing a new television ad in Iowa that shows that Rubio will stoop to any and all lengths to prostitute himself to the large Christofascist element of the GOP base. The man seemingly will say and do anything to win over the religious extremist vote. One would think that the president of the United States should make decisions based on objective facts, detailed intelligence and research and consultation with experts. Not Rubio. In is new tawdry whore pitch to knuckle draggers and those who base their lives on myths and fairy tales, Rubio bloviates about being "guided by his faith." Pardon me as I reach for a vomit bag! USA Today looks at Rubio's shameless self-prostitution to those who are the Christian equivalent to the Taliban. Here are highlights:
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is highlighting his Christian faith as he attempts to clip competitor Ted Cruz's momentum in Iowa.Rubio on Thursday released a new 30-second ad that will hit the airwaves this weekend in Iowa that says he is guided by his faith — Rubio is Catholic — in everything that he does.“The purpose of our life is to cooperate with God’s plan,” the Florida senator says in the spot. “To those whom much has been given much is expected, and we will be asked to account for that. Were your treasures stored up on earth or in heaven? And, to me, I try to allow that to influence me in everything that I do.”Rubio is trailing both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in Iowa. Cruz has been ascendant in the state that opens 2016 voting with caucuses on Feb. 1, as he's picked up the support of evangelical supporters who had been backing retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.
If Rubio truly believes this blather, then he is too stupid to occupy the White House. On the other hand, if this is merely a disingenuous self-prostitution, the idiot evangelical voters need to ask themselves this: if he is lying to us know, what assurance do we have that he won't lie to us if elected.
