From The Hill:
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) traveled with President Obama on Air Force One Thursday to Orlando, where the president will meet with victims’ families and survivors of the mass shooting at a popular gay nightclub.
It’s rare for Republican lawmakers to fly with Obama on the presidential aircraft, especially those who have been vocally critical of him, like Rubio.
Didn’t Lil’ Marco learn anything from Chris Christie’s Obama-lovin’ hug after Hurricane Sandy? Didn’t he?
This will be the Kiss of Death for his future senatorial ambitions for sure.
Marco Rubio on engaging Chris Christie in the debates:
“I don’t think it impacted voters, but I do think it impacted media coverage in the days leading up to the New Hampshire vote, which I think ultimately hurt us. I think we would have finished very strongly in New Hampshire had it not been for that, and it might have led to a different outcome in South Carolina and maybe changed the directory of the race.”
Trajectory, directory. Who cares? It’s all just a bunch of words anyway. Damned elites.
From the Daily Kos, part of “The Week Ahead”written by Bill in Maine:
Tuesday Today is supposed to be the day the buzzards return to Hinckley, Ohio. But they’re making an exception on this Super Tuesday II to fly in circles around the Marco Rubio campaign instead.
Thank you, ladies and germs, I’ll be here all week!
From Frank Bruni of the NYT:
“Rubio is essentially the Christmas fruitcake of the 2016 cycle: presented as a gift, received as something neither appetizing nor especially nutritive.”
