Well, Sen. Marco Rubio today submitted himself to Fox News Channel’s Monkey in the Middle segment – officially called “Outnumbered” – where a dude is dropped in a sea of estrogen and tries to keep his thoughts straight while questioned by smart, attractive distaff Fox News anchors.
The show is supposed to feature clever and insightful takes on the news provoked by the sensation of being “outnumbered,” but as you can see in the clip below, Rubio wasn’t above launching into some of his standard campaign blather, as in, “I honestly believe the time has come for a new generation of leadership . . . ” and blah blah blah blah blah.
This line, of course, is meant for his fellow Floridian, the suddenly shrinking 800-pound GOP Primary gorilla Jeb Bush, and of course it will come in handy against Hillary Clinton should Rubio gain the nomination.
Why bash your elders, Marco? Such thinking would have excluded Ronald Reagan, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from the presidency. Surely, having written the Declaration of Independence in 1776, it was time for a new generation of leadership in 1801 when Jefferson became president, wasn’t it?
If Rubio really is the intelligent, earnest fellow his promoters are touting, than he might want to lose some of the insincere claptrap.
One thing I noticed is that he looks a little diminutive, even among the ladies. At 5’10”, Rubio is short for a modern president.
I say it’s time for a president of stature who can help America stand tall!
And blah blah blah blah blah.
