Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Thursday joined a group of Republicans threatening to filibuster gun control legislation in the Senate.

“We, the undersigned, intend to oppose any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms, or on their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance,” he wrote in a statement on his website.
“The Second Amendment to the Constitution protects citizens’ right to self-defense. It speaks to history’s lesson that government cannot be in all places at all times, and history’s warning about the oppression of a government that tries.”

Yea! Rubio, one of the NDAA

Yea! Rubio, one of the NDAA pimps, now Stands with Rand in protecting our Second Amendment rights because we shouldn't be "subjected to government surveillance". Hmmm, Marco Rubio, I figure such a stance should also conclude that we shouldn't be "subjected to government" spleen checks by the TSA, or "subjected to government" black van abductions.

In my head....

Rubio: Struts down the halls of Congress and thinks, "Oh yea, future president coming through, look out! I'm #1 babay!"

*Rands filibusters drones. Support grows*

Rubio: "Who the eff is this guy!? And where is my thunder going!?"
Rubio: ".........." "I STAND WITH RAND!!!" "Love that guy! Isn't it cool how cool I think Rand is?"

Fin.

How much longer can Rubio maintain relevence? Not very long, if he keeps jumping on wagons. Then again, Americans have the shortest attention span I have ever seen... so they probably won't remember anything in 2016 except for the narrative the media will portray.

You hit the nail on the head - I have zero respect for

Rubio after dealing with his office and his foolish filibuster speech. The MSM will continue to push him to their viewers but we've got 3.5 years to set the record straight!

Rubio should be worried about

Rubio should be worried about his own 2016 viability. He has a 0% chance of winning the general election.

Senator Marco Rubio needs to

Senator Marco Rubio needs to understand the power he has, and join with our team, if he really wants to help our country. He's going to get a no vote from me in the next election if he doesn't.

Rubio is a follower, not a leader.

Notice how he is always a late straggler getting behind whatever Rand says and does.

At some point Rand needs to drop the coattails and make these guys walk themselves instead of dragging them along on his coattails behind him.

I won't be Voting for Rubio

If the Republican Party tries pushing Rubio, it will go down like last time with Romney.

Don't trust Rubio. If Rubio really cared, he'd simply be backing and endorsing Rand and Cruz.

Because of that time magazine cover, I'd think that Rubio is already the chosen one for the elites. Now it would seem they are trying to make him viable by having him pose as endorsing Liberty. Seems like they are gearing their talking heads on their "news" channels to pose as Liberty minded as well....but I doubt it is really the case...more smoke and mirrors. Manipulative subversions. Diabolical deceptions. Sorry, am not going with Rubio no matter the circumstance...might as well keep Obama.

He's only going along with Paul/Cruz/Lee because

of pressure from his constituents. His heart is with the Coot & Fruit camp. He'll never get another vote from me.

exactly

Excelent observation btw.

Rubio has demonstrated zero leadership skills

He's the same kind of well-lubricated weathervane as Mitt Romney.
