Marco Rubio Tricked The Tea Party

Categories: Luke's Gospel

Uncle Luke, the man whose booty-shaking madness once made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech, gets as nasty as he wants to be for Miami New Times. This week, Luke reassesses Sen. Marco Rubio's Tea Party credentials.

I need to thank Marco Rubio. He really stuck it to the Tea Party. He played those fools into voting for him. He had been keeping up appearances until early May, when he was a guest on NBC's Meet the Press, voicing support for Rep. Paul Ryan's plan to slash $500 million from Medicare.

Rubio told host David Gregory: "I will support any plan that saves Medicare, doesn't impact seniors, and doesn't hurt economic growth. The Ryan plan does that."

But entering his sixth month on Capitol Hill, the West Miami Cuban-American has begun to distance himself from the folks who want to "take back America." Some hard-core Tea Partiers are thinking about revoking Rubio's membership in the clan. His campaign rhetoric promised a tough stance on immigration, but now he's waffling. They are not happy.

Despite claiming he will vote against the Dream Act, which would create a path to citizenship for some children of illegal immigrants, he hasn't pushed for other radical immigration reforms proposed by the Tea Party, whose members are starting to take notice. Sarasota Tea Party activist George Fuller recently told the Miami Herald: "He wants to have it both ways. We're zeroing in on him like a laser."

I think it's hilarious that Rubio used the Tea Party to get elected when he knew damn well he couldn't mess with immigration law. They'll run his ass out of Miami. He made those Tea Party people feel like he was down with them, but he was really a wolf in sheep's clothing. After they made him the first Cuban to get a white robe and hood, Rubio is turning his back on the Aryan nation.The Tea Party's number one priority is kicking all the people who are not a perfect shade of white out of the country. That is what Rubio signed up for.

Now he's flip-flopping, which makes me wonder: Is it voter fraud when you trick people into believing you are a member of their party to win their votes?

Why would government "picking up the tab" for illegal immigrants and supporting anti-fascists (i.e. personal responsibility) healthcare be against tea party standards.  I as a tea partier, a lover of our constitutional republic, think is doing what I voted him to do.  It look like Luke's Gospel is a bit untruthful and attempting to take the light away from the biggest threat to Obama .... who is  a total failure.  Rubio 2012, if we had it our way!!!!

Luther Campbell is an idiot.Rubio still has the full support of the tea party. This guy is trying to bait and cause ruckus.Obama is the one that the tea party and the majority of the nation is against if Romney runs according to a new poll.

Uncle Luke you got this guy down 100%, he was slime in MIA & his only interest is Marco Rubio!  His goal is to be the first Cube-merican President of the USA, I think he is delusional.  But like you said he hoodwinked the aryan's so who is to say how far he will make it in the future.

This article is hilarious, but what's even funnier is that Luke has just realized that this is the real game of politics....tell them what they want to hear, get voted into office, and then turn your back on all their bulls***. Way to go Rubio. Deep down we knew you were a true Latino and not a WASP. Can't help but laugh. Lmfaoooooooooo, Luke for 2012!!!!!!!

The tea partiers are not trying to make all of America white. They want the laws that ARE ON THE BOOKS ENFORCED. They are also following the principles of the founding fathers which is what made America great. Uncle Luke, stop playing the race card, it is getting old.

You are so right Tim, they are more like KKK skinheads that would hang every black in America. Not at all like Nazi Germany, they were more into torture and burning jews to death.

Its funny how everyone says that Obama is a total failure. The funny thing about that is he wasn't a failure when he passed healthcare reform; he wasn't a failure when he repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell; and he sure wasn't a failure when he caught OSAMA BIN LADEN!So stop hating cause none of the Republicans did any of that nor the Tea Partyers. I so dispise haters.

I love the way you keep it REAL Raul and tell it like it is. Luke for President 2012 and Raul for Vice-President.....where do I vote? Basically, what Marco Rubio did was stick to the Tea Partyers and its a shame that they were stupid enough to believe that he was with them when in actually, he was boosting his resume and rising up the chain of power. Very strategic.

Definitely in search of a snow white world, those tea baggers!!! Just like you said, enforce laws on the books (created by white men), principals of the founding fathers(white slave owners).  What makes America great is the human spirit that resides within every American of every hue, gender, religion & heritage, not the selfish hatred spewed by your typical tea-baggers!

Hey Bananero the founding fathers were slave owners too. That didn't make America so great now did it.

Good point Jasmine. That is so true cause I don't see the Republicans saying they caught Osama Bin Laden either. And plus, Obama took a HUGE political risk by PROMISING the American people that his administration will catch him and kill him. And look, 11yrs after 911, 2008 Obama won the presidential election, 3yrs in his first term, and he caught  that S.O.B Osama Bin Laden. Evidently Obama is doing something right. So to all the Tea Baggers out there, what do you have to say now.
