Wrong Way Rubio targets Florida's Jr. senator

Picture 16
Progress Florida and Florida Watch Action today launched WrongWayRubio.com, to highlight what they call Rubio's "extreme positions, numerous ethical lapses, and the "wrongway" he’s trying to lead our nation" at a time when the leading vice presidential contender is aggrressively cultivated a positive and outsized national profile.

"Sen. Rubio is moreinterested in his personal ambitions than in doing what’s best for Floridiansand our nation," said Mark Ferrulo, Executive Director of Progress Florida. "WrongWayRubio.com exposes his long track record of hypocrisy, ethical lapsesand out of touch issue positions.

"As Marco Rubio continueshis aggressive public relations campaign to burnish his image,WrongWayRubio.com cuts through the rhetoric and shows where he really stands onissues important to Floridians and Americans," said Ferrulo.

"In just the last few weeks, Sen. Rubio hasworked to restrict women’s access to birth control and opposed legislationrequiring that BP’s oil spill fines actually go to the states most affected bythe disaster," said Amy Ritter, Research Director for Florida Watch Action. "'Wrong Way' is probably being too kind in describing how out of touch theSenator really is."

Can't take anymore

Marcocito has been kissing up to the powers that fund the Republican Party for so long he could only vaguely remember the needs of the people of Florida. If nominated to run as VP with Willard he should do the honorable thing and run on his record, if he can produce one. They would have little chance of being elected, anyway. He is the modern equivalent of Dan Quayle.


You guy's better get use to Marco Rubio since he will be the next Vice President of the United States after the November 2012 elections. OTO

If anything, Rubio is more aligned with dictatorship style government than with a democratic republic.
He supports more restrictions on women, is totally against giving gays their rights, wants to give more power to corporate leaders and take away even the little rights that workers have now.
He reminds me more and more of Batista and Castro than of any democratically elected leader.

It is frightening to have someone like Jeb Bush pushing Marco Rubio as a VP candidate. This nation has not yet recovered from the last inexperienced and unqualified Republican, George W. Bush. It was scary in 2008 that the Republicans thought that Sarah Palin was a choice to be one heart beat away from being President. If Marco Rubio is selected, Republicans will be making the same mistake again.

Marco Rubio is an ethically challenged man who has not yet paid his student loan debts so it is obvious that he does not deserve to be considered for any higher office.

Marco Rubio is NOT qualified to be Vice President.
