Marco Rubio Would Like Donald Trump to Shut Up About Obama's Birth Certificate

It's actually kind of amazing that the debate over Barack Obama's place of birth is still raging. I guess that's what happens when national punch line Donald Trump tries desperately to make headlines for his grand publicity stunt of pretending to think about running for president and decides to reignite the old "birthers" controversy. Well, Marco Rubio is sick of it and doesn't understand why anyone is still talking about Obama's birth certificate. He's come along way on the issue since he said on the campaign trail that he didn't know whether Obama was born in America.



"I believe Barack Obama was born in the United States of America," Rubio says in an interview with the Daily Caller. "He says he was, so why are we talking about this?"

Rubio says he'd tell Trump to ignore that issue, because thre are more important issues facing the country.

Rubio was never quite caught up in the birther craze like many of his fellow Republicans, but was a bit less definitive on the issue on the campaign trail.

At one rally, he said he "didn't know" whether Obama was born in America, but added, "He's been sworn in already... If someone had evidence, they should have presented it a long time ago."

Though, at the time, he did add he thought there were much more important issues.

Why is it when someone runs for office, they must make sure to spend most of their time bashing someone else instead of talking about what we can do for our country. We are sick of all the wasted time. We love our country, Americans have DIED for our country! My brother was one of them. Americans want to know they have a job, can give there selves and their kids an education and we want to be able to save a little money. We were not all born with a silver spoon in our mouth. Not one American in this country should have to go hungray! American Factorys and Big Companys that go over seas and have their goods made, when Americans COULD have had those jobs, then ship those goods back here for us to buy, should have to be made to pay the highest fines ever or not be able to have there goods sold here! We need to start thinking about America!!! Bring back the jobs! We need to bring every American military man and woman back home to our country and have the strongest military we have ever had, concentrating on the safety of our nation, we need to stop being the Bandage to the entire world because there are people that will never stop fighting. We need a person, man or woman that cares and talks about what America can do for America! Maybe we need to vote in someone that really knows what it is like to really be in need, to be out here with the people that know what needs to be done to look after Americans for a change! We are sick of all the petty fights! We don't care anymore about someone getting attition to make them more famous, this is the real world! We as American get it, we live it, so stop the crap and get down to business!!!

Marco Rubio got elected on the fear of the state of Florida, which is run by a majority of right wing conservative Cuban representatives. Those representatives were elected based on fear as well, but also just simple ignorance of those in their districts who will believe anyone who steps up to a microphone "embracing the Cuban people". That immigration bill being pushed by Anitere Flores, another active member of the Cuban Tea Party Club, is an example of how this conservative majority is willing to do anything that will inconvenience and destroy the lives of those who don't share their facist views. I would love to know who in their family was born in the United States, better yet I would love to know why they came here in the first place. My guess is freedom, too bad Rubio and Flores back only persecution.

Mr. Rubio exercises his free speech right anytime he pleases, but apparently cannot stomach Mr. Trump exercising the same.

It tells me a lot about Mr. Rubio's "commitment" to the U.S. Constitution (in particular, to the Bill of Rights).

Rubio has to clean himself up now, remove his old tats of the Liars Lane, Cheat Club, and Thievery Den so he can appropriate an "air of respectability as a "Senator" - the newest political oxymoron for him. What worse than to be associated with a fellow scumbag like Trump, blubbering and blabbering his specialty - horseshit - and who has made most of his money by stealing it from others? Nuthin' for our newly polished illustrious junior senator now firmly ensconced in his congressional corruption training.

Mr. Rubio the Hawaii newspapers announced a son was born to Mr. and Mrs Barack Obama..the name of the son is not mentioned.

Barack Obama's legal wife in 1961 was Kezia Obama from Kenya.

How does Stanley Ann Dunham fit into the picture?

Did Ms. Dunham agree to "adopt" Barack Sr. and Kezia's child and claim it as her own in order to get the child into the country?

Where did the birth actually take place, i.e. at which hospital?

Who was the attending physician / midwife?

Rubio is indigenous to Cuba not the United States..the same as Obama...with Kenya. Both should return to live with their Kindred blood..

"He says he was, so why are we talking about this?".... Sorry, "says" isn't good enough for me, especially since Obama is *actively* spending money to *avoid* presenting it. Shut Trump (idiot) up with the birth certificate, why not? Obama can end it easily. So why wont he? *That* is the real question. Cheers.

Every time Rubio opens his mouth defending peregrine Obama he molests the Constitution. A natural born Citizen is born to citizen parents. A country cannot perpetuate itself unless its citizens are born from citizens.

Two Supreme Court cases has defined a natural born Citizen as being born to citizen parents.

Rubio is an idiot.

many Republicans want to consider amending or is repealing the 14th amendment to make sure anchor babies do not get citizenship. I wonder whether some Republicans silently resent him. Marco rubio

Just off the top of your head, please give a definition of "fascist" that covers Hitler, Mussolini, and the "the Cuban Tea Party Club." Now describe one (documented) fascist view of the CTPC. State the documentation. Q.E.D.

Apparently you are new to this whole internet thing... Obama's birth certificate has been posted online by his campaign office for over three years and has been inspected, handled, and verified by 8 different media outlets. Not one of them could find any issues leading them to believe it was in any way falsified or forged.

His a birth certificate has already been shown and proven to be legit. This is a stupid argument. This is seriously sad. I guess Donald Trump is bored. Apprentice ain't cuttin' it as a hobby anymore.

You do realize that by your definition, Donald Trump may not be a natural-born citizen. His mother was an immigrant from Scotland and may not have been a citizen at the time he was born.

Furthermore, that would also mean that most of Donald Trump's children are NOT natural born citizens. Ivanka, Donald Jr., and Eric Trump were ALL born before their mother Ivana because a US Citizen.

Mr. Rubio is a bonafide citizen - he rafted over from Cuba, made it to dry sand, stuck his foot in, and shouted "I want critical assignment" because he didn't even know about political asylum back then. Look how far he has come, all the way up the beach.

Fascism, basically a radical authoritarian and nationalist political ideology. Not too harsh since it seems ok for the GOP to call the President a socialist. And I'll do even better and give you two documents, Florida State Senate Bills 1538, and 2040. Happy reading and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Actually, Fascism is an authoritarian form of government of, by, and for corporate interests, not the people. The tea party with it's heavy reliance on corporate backers and resulting support of them in direct contradiction of the best interests of the citizens they swore an oath to protect and serve fits the definition of Fascism perfectly.
