Marco Rubio Targeted by Democratic PAC Over Family Story Flip-Flop VIDEO

Categories: Politicks
A week ago, the Washington Post slammed Florida's freshman Sen. Marco Rubio for "embellishing" his family story by claiming his parents arrived in Miami after Fidel Castro took over Cuba when, in fact, they arrived three years earlier.

Well, it didn't take Democrats very long to recognize the opportunity.

American Bridge 21st Century, a Democrat-aligned political action committee, has already prepared an ominous montage of Rubio's misstatements with the goal of scuppering the rising GOP star's nascent political career. See the video below.

American Bridge president Rodell Mollineau made no effort to hide that his PAC made the video to swift-boat Rubio's chances of landing on the GOP ticket next fall.

"If he is going to be bandied about as a vice-presidential candidate, don't you think people should know more about him?" he told CNN. "We'd like the American people to know a little bit more about Marco Rubio."

When the Post broke the news about Rubio's fudged bio, we also took exception, calling the senator a hypocrite and an opportunist.

But the fact that American Bridge would create an ad about a guy who isn't running for re-election for the next four years and has repeatedly refused offers to run for president says more about our insane, 24/7/365 Machiavellian political cycle than it does about Marco Rubio.

Here's the video. Let us know what you think:

The point is that he lied. doesn't matter what he lied about but being caught in that situation means he lost his credibility. Once it is proven beyond a doubt that he lied for political gain he can not be trusted with anything he says. he was caught up in a scandal while speaker of the Florida house and now this, what other skeletons does this guy have. Is there any way to recall him? I voted for him because I believed his story now I want him gone. On a side note he is close friends with another untrustworthy Rep from Florida, David Riveria.

The same Marco Rubio? That Talks Big but Fails to Deliver?

Before the March 2000 session, Rubio was hardly the scorching conservative who would later woo Tea Partiers nationwide. He said he'd focus on supporting early education and community policing. And he wasn't particularly passionate about cutting spending. In his first three years, he supported adding a $4 surcharge to cruise tickets to fund a Marlins stadium and a $1.2 million earmark to build new bike paths in his district

Marco Rubio Really Admires Dead Racist Jesse Helms?

So, Marco Rubio is going around calling America "weakened." He blames it on Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare.
