Rubio comes skittering to McConnell's aid


Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has the support of tea party darling Marco Rubio for re-election next year.

The Republican senator from Florida said during an appearance on FOX News Sunday that he supports McConnell's re-election. The McConnell campaign distributed a transcript of Rubio's weekend comments to media covering the Kentucky race.

McConnell and his GOP primary challenger, Louisville businessman Matt Bevin, have been competing for tea party endorsements.

Rubio said McConnell has done a good job as leader of the Senate Republicans, which he described as a diverse group with lots of different opinions.

Yeah... right

Only a few months ago, Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) was cruising toward the 2016 Republican primaries.

What decade was this in?

Rubio, taking a different tact, introduced a bill this week to delay penalties for people who don't obtain insurance — a position even the administration admitted it may have to take should the problems persist.

"It's unfair to punish people for not purchasing a product that they can't purchase right now because the technology that's in place, the website they're supposed to buy it on — by the president's own admission — is not working," he said.

The move is a notable shift from the shutdown rhetoric, when fire-breathing conservatives aimlessly attacked ObamaCare despite having no realistic strategy.

Well with milquetoast legislation like that I'm sure Rubio will zoom straight to the top of the polls.
