Marco Rubio's Fans Call Him a "Pussy," "Idiot" and "Sell Out" for Congratulating Bill Nelson

Last night, Senator Bill Nelson cruised to an easier than expected reelection, and, because Marco Rubio has some decency, Florida's junior senator took to Facebook to congratulate Florida's senior senator. However, a lot of Rubio's Facebook fans were just not having it.

Rubio's statement was pretty milquetoast:
"I congratulate Bill Nelson on his re-election victory. During my first two years in the Senate, he has been a good partner in serving our constituents. I look forward to working with him in the coming years on the issues shaping Florida's future."
It was political pleasantries between two politicians who represent the same state, but Rubio's base have no patience for manners, apparently.

Sure, other Facebook fans stuck to just bashing Nelson, giving Rubio plaudits for his class, or calling for him to run for president in 2016, but it's kind of sad a Senator can get attacked for sending the most lukewarm congratulations to a colleague.

I agree. Nelson won.  What else do you do say?  FU Nelson? Rubio was so gracious.  My pick for VP.  Would have probably brought the hispanic vote that went 70% for Obama. Rubio 2016!

Unfortunately, many people in the "United" States have become so obsessed with the idea of competition and the need for a clear winner, right or wrong, that there is no room for civil discussion or compromise. Our country is made up of so many different beliefs, nationalities and backgrounds that it is imperative that people, such as those who wrote those heinous comments, stop thinking theirs are the only opinions that matter.  Anyone in a leadership position in the USA is vested with the responsibility to make decisions that will benefit all of us. They are in the position of having to decide what is best for everyone, without regard to greed, power or any other negative influence on them. I truly hope that the nasty bigots who wrote those unnecessary comments will search theirs hearts for some shred of understanding and openness toward other people than themselves. We are all in this together, and, unless we take care of each other, not just ourselves to the exclusion of others, we are doomed. I sincerely applaud Senator Marco Rubio for his congratulatory remarks to his colleague, with whom he must work to help our country progress and continue to strive to be a place where all are valued, no matter their economic, religious or ideological status.

Wow, these guys really need to calm down. Politics have completely changed these last 6 years and the republican status quo , is no longer valid. We need to redevelop our party for the new 21st century political world and come back strong in 2 years time. That means compromise because if 2012 showed us anything, its that america is way too divided. The president claims he wants to reach across the isle, lets do the same.

All these NUTJOBS have watched one too many episodes of Doomsday Preppers!  This is exactly the reason why the US economy is suffering because of these diehard one-dimensional characters full of hatred and not much of anything else.  Blacks & Latinos are not going away...ever, so you're just gonna have to live with it or build your own little island escape.

When did it become a crime for adversaries to congratulate each other on a well fought battle? How about everybody just growing up a little bit!

If that doesn't give Rubio a clue about his support base, nothing will. He'd better use the next four years to distance himself from the lunatic fringe he courted to get elected in the first place, or he'll be going the way of Mittens.

heres the thing about the internet/twitter/social media, there will always be shitheads from both sides. May it be politics, sports, music, fans. To assume a party is full of something over a few fools who tweet drive by commentary is dumb and so is making a whole article over it/reading and article and making yourself look just as dumb for bashing as well.
