Marco Rubio: Messenger of False Hope

I try not to be cynical.  But after 20 years of watching the Professional Loser Party (aka the GOP) repeat the same losing patterns over and over and over and over, I've stopped being hopeful.  

Last night Marco Rubio gave the Professional Loser Party’s response to the State of the Union Address.  And, as usual, it was a retread of the same old tired rhetoric that the PLP puts out every time.

He didn’t personalize it.
He didn’t include real names of people, whereas Obama did.
He spoke broadly: “More government isn’t going to create more opportunities. It’s going to limit them."
                - That’s almost an exact quote from one of Mitt Romney’s speeches. 
He spoke in 3rd person: “Parents are concerned about  their children”.

But worst of all…he didn’t mention a single problem that the Hussein administration has caused.  Rubio could have laid waste to all of Obama’s proposals by pointing out:

But he didn’t.  Why?  Why didn't he tear into Obama?  Because he’s afraid of what the media will say?  Because he doesn’t want to be seen as “negative”?  No. It’s because he’s the PLP’s chosen fall guy.  He’s already being groomed to run against Hillary in 2016, and so he’s sending coded messages to the Democrats that he won’t fight hard enough to win.

I'm serious.  If Marco Rubio is who the PLP is going to put up as their candidate, then we need someone else. Rubio did nothing to inspire or captivate his audience. All he did was rattle off the same vague platitudes that all the other PLP losers have rattled off: Romney, Gingrich, Boehner, McConnell, etc.  He has no fight in him. He’s not so ticked off at Obama’s policies that he’s going to openly attack.  No, he’s just going to play nice and be a good loser.

When Mitt Romney was selected as the PLP’s 2012 candidate, I told all my friends to prepare for another four years of Hussein Obama.  Now that I’ve seen Marco Rubio speak, I can safely predict: prepare for at least four years of President Hillary Clinton in 2016.
