A part of the GOP is starting to gravitate to Marco Rubio as the nominee and even Hillary Clinton is starting to view him as Public Enemy #1. We’ve discussed before how great he is when it comes to discussing hot-button issues like abortion and guns (Watch Rubio’s brilliant response to a pro-abortion reporter here). Prepared, confident, but isn’t sidetracked by media-bait, if we were Hillary Clinton, we’d be scared too.
So naturally it makes sense for Jeb Bush to plan a massive attack against Rubio. Or, it would make as much sense as anything Jeb has done this campaign. Because seriously…
Actually, it’s not “Jeb Bush” so much as it is his “Super PAC.” Riiiiiight…
The cash-rich group aiding Jeb Bush’s White House run has filmed a provocative video casting his rival Marco Rubio as ultimately unelectable because of his hard-line stand against abortion.
That group, which has raised more than $100 million, has asked voters in New Hampshire how they feel about Mr. Rubio’s skipping important votes in the Senate.
The Rubio campaign is so on top of their game, they actually released this response as we were writing this post:
Three things here:
1. The two key votes they claim Rubio skipped, he didn’t skip. So there’s that.
2. Any adviser who thinks accusing a Republican candidate of being TOO pro-life in a Republican primary needs to be issued a mandatory drug test, psychiatric evaluation and then blacklisted from advising anyone ever again. Why not attack him for being too much of a hardliner on illegal immigration? Or accuse him of declaring a war on women against Hillary Clinton? And remember that time he stabbed poor Charlie Crist in the back? You know, stuff that maybe worked in the history of ‘ever’?
3. What’s the deal with Jeb Bush telegraphing his shot the day before a debate when A) you know they’re going to ask Rubio, and B) You know Rubio is going to publicly disembowel you with his response on the national stage?
Need we remind you what happened the last time, Skippy?
Rubio is going to beat Jeb to death with his own shoes tonight at the Fox Business debate. Jeb, this was a mistake. An awful, horrible mistake…
