Out of all fourteen declared GOP Presidential candidates and even a few of the undeclared ones like Scott Walker, the one candidate who gave one of the least passionate and the most tepid responses to the Supreme Court’s lawless ruling on marriage was Senator Marco Rubio.
Rubio said something to the effect that he was disappointed in the ruling but that we now must all abide by the court’s decision.
While some candidates rushed to the nearest microphone to shout their disgust and call for remedies such as a federal constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman, etc., Rubio on the other hand, couldn’t have been more passive in his reaction to the biggest act of judicial activism in history.
As Ted Cruz pointed out on Friday’s Sean Hannity radio show, many Republicans are actually secretly overjoyed with these rulings, particularly the one on marriage. This ruling means the GOP no longer has to defend marriage and stand for the family and our values.
The establishment and weak-kneed Republicans like Marco Rubio, who, lest we forget, tried to push through amnesty a few years ago, look at this ruling and this new definition on marriage by a handful of lawyers on the court, as an escape route of sorts, and a way to avoid dealing with the issue altogether.
In a sense, the establishment can now wash their hands of marriage and on those moral issues they deem as too divisive or controversial.
The mantra from the GOP establishment and unprincipled Republicans like Rubio is as follows: Let’s move on and fight the next battle! That would normally would be good advice if this travesty of a decision wasn’t such a blatantly lawless unconstitutional act and if the GOP had a history of actually fighting on other issues, but they don’t!
If you can’t get passionate and filled with outrage over what just happened in our country, than I can’t see how you would make a good President and I certainly can’t see how you can call yourself a Constitutional conservative!
Shame on Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, or any of the other candidates who are too cowardly to take a stand for our Constitution and too timid to stand against the assault on our traditions and moral values!
Keep these reactions in mind when sorting through these candidates as we enter this primary season. Remember, some stood in the gap and shared our outrage regarding this tyranny and others almost breathed a big sigh of relief that they don’t have to deal with this issue anymore! We know who those folks are!
Below, I wanted to share my unique way of grading these candidates. You will be seeing a lot of this as we profile more of the GOP candidates during this Presidential primary.
As you’ll see, I gave Marco Rubio two red flags! He is one of those candidates that I don’t think is all that trustworthy! This is a man who shortly after getting elected to the U.S. Senate, after running on Tea Party values in Florida, joined despicable individuals like Chuck Schumer, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Dick Durbin to pass amnesty for illegals.
Let’s also not forget, Rubio caved on defunding Obamacare and on Obama’s lawless executive amnesty! We also need to remember that Rubio was a close disciple of Jeb Bush during his early years in Florida politics.
I will blog more about Marco Rubio and reveal more information about him and the other candidates as we enter this primary season. I am committed this year and next to do everything in my power as one Patriot to highlight the records, backgrounds, and views of each of these fourteen or so candidates seeking the GOP nomination!
I refuse to allow the GOP to continue the insane practice of nominating RINO’s who later go on to lose the general election!
We need to start getting educated about these candidates and understand the importance of picking an authentic conservative this time! God help us if this party repeats the same mistakes of the past! Read below!
