He isn't seeing the real reason

why the Tea Party doesn't like him.. he is a neocon! So obvious. Fox News even likes Rubio and always throws him softball questions. That is a telling sign right there.

From a hispanic, he needs to be recalled.

Any good he does is done because he felt forced into it such as the Rand Paul filibuster. He is a tea party creation who is drinking with devils and producing nothing of net value other than he isn't a democrat.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

Oh poor baby.
