Obama to Marco Rubio's Friend: "Tell Your Boy to Watch It. He Might Get His Ass Kicked"

Categories: Politicks
Barack Obama's reelection campaign hasn't even hit full stride yet, and there's already an e-book that supposedly explains all the campaign's dirty secrets.

Politico and Random House released "Obama's Last Stand" this morning, an e-book that among other things claims that when speculation began that Marco Rubio might become Romney's running mate, Obama told a close friend of the Florida senator that he should "watch out" because he could get his ass kicked, electorally speaking.

Reports Politico:
Obama's trash-talking competitiveness, a trait that has defined him since his days on the court as a basketball-obsessed teenager in Hawaii, was on display one night last February, when the president spotted a woman he knew was close to Sen. Marco Rubio in a Florida hotel lobby. "Is your boy going to go for [vice president]?" the president asked her. Maybe, she replied.

"Well," he said, chuckling, according to a person who witnessed the encounter. "Tell your boy to watch it. He might get his ass kicked."
Considering that Rubio used to play high school football in Miami-Dade and has admitted to being a big, big fan of Nicki Minaj, we're pretty sure he can take a little innocent trash talking.

That particular anecdote -- and really, who the hell knows how true it is? -- isn't going to be all that great for Obama's image however.

But such behind-the-scense trash taking isn't all that uncommon in politics. Florida Congressman John Mica reportedly told Sandy Adams, another incumbent running against him in a primary due to redistricting that "I'll destroy you."

This is so ridiculous only a 'bagger would believe it.  The President doesn't talk like that - they are trying to "blacken" him up.  Including in that darkened picture they have.  Like President Obama would call any other politician "boy."  You can tell some racist 'bagger made up this scenario.  Only those dumb enough to vote republican would believe this at all.  Pfffft.

 South Florida is known as the capital of Medicare fraud,

Feds in Miami: Millions stolen from Medicare wound up in Cuban banking system In an unprecedented case, federal prosecutors have charged a Miami man with engaging in a massive money laundering scheme that moved millions stolen from the federal Medicare program into Cuban banks.

I want to protect Medicare. I want to save it," Rubio told CNN.

"It's going bankrupt. And so the only way to save it is to come up with a solution that allows our parents and our grandparents to see absolutely no changes to their Medicare," Rubio added.


Why keep trotting out this Marco Rubio=Anchor Baby character? He has nothing to say and basically no one gives =Running on Empty aka joke

Rubio is a crook, and a liar.

No more needs to be said
