I was born in Havana , Rubio was born in USA ,Rubio is a self serving, con artist HYPOCRITE.I like how liberals go on about racism, yet this thread has turned into bashing Rubio because he is Cuban. It goes to show how hypocritical liberals are and why it is important that we vote Dems out in 2014 and 2016.
Majority of Miami Cuban politicos make the NY MAFIA look ethical, Rubio has even endorsed his corrupt friend David Rivera who was so corrupt that even by the zero Miami Cuban political standards he was voted out but than again non Cubans in Miami voted in massive numbers last election.
Rubio has NEVER lifted a finger against any corrupt Miami Cuban politico regardless of how much USA tax money they steal.
Rubio has never lifted a finger to stop the tens of millions of dollars which the gvmt throws away on assorted Miami based "Cuba libre" funds which have only lined the pockets of his supporters.
These two things describe Miami Cuban separatist politics and Rubio is no different.He is simply a better con artist.
"The Cuban community that doesn’t care about corruption when it casts its vote was critically portrayed by most leading city columnists and others, Cuban and otherwise. Robert Steinback, a Black Miami Herald columnist, said the Cuban community is gullible. Liz Balmaseda calls it “a knee-jerk majority” that would elect a hamster wearing a Cuba Libre T-shirt, and,“They only cared that he was Cuban.”
"Cuban-Americans have “perfected [corruption in government] in many ways to a fine art.” That is not correct, however, because if corruption is done that well, it is unnoticed and subtle. Corruption in Miami’s Cuban-American government has been crude, blatant and openly defiant"
