Marco Rubio CPAC 2013 Speech Analysis

I wrote an article on Rubio's CPAC speech. The first draft got deleted unfortunately. I had a much better article ... but I rewrote it again. Let me know what you guys think.

While watching Marco Rubio's speech today at CPAC 2013, I thought I'd write an analysis of his speech.

Before I get started, I thought it was important to note, as Rubio did himself, that he got started in politics through the Tea Party Movement of 2010, a movement largely adopted by the GOP from the original Tea Party Movement back in 2007 during the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign. He owes his political existence to the Libertarian Wing of the GOP and Ron Paul, whether he wants to admit it or not. This is your competition for 2016.

Rubio started his speech by saying "The good people are the ones who do things right and don't complain. Infighting between Conservatives is a foolish notion."

Nice article, some great points...

Nice article, very appreciated. Gives us some clear points of distinction with neocon GOP policies. I liked the point in this paragraph:

And if they (China) really are trying to copy us as Rubio claims, we are setting an incredibly dangerous precedent with our foreign policy. So somehow when America does regime change, drone bombings into foreign countries, nation building, unilaterally invading other nations, threatening them with sanctions, and torturing and ceorcing its enemies, this is a good thing? But when China "follows" American lead on these issues in the future, it will be a bad thing? What happens when these kinds of things are done against Americans by a foreign power? These are serious questions that need to be addressed.

I agree - we need to exercise self-restraint as a country, lest we set examples which other countries can cite as justification for their own interventionist policies.

Rubio is riding or Ron and Rand's coattails hoping for a chance

The media will try to give him that chance.

But he is obviously just another establishment stooge, and of course he is an attorney also.

rubio is still a neocon ..

rubio is still a neocon .. remember republicans talking about going to war with russia and north korea back in 2008 because russia invaded georgia? we are all georgians now? they always need a new threat ... and he did a horrible job at pretending China was a threat.

Excellent Write-up

I never knew Rubio cosponsored the internet piracy acts. Huge issue in my book.
