Conservatives make a mistake when they put their hope in a person and not principles. That is the message from Laura Ingraham:
Before the election of Marco Rubio to the US Senate many saw him as the man to carry to Washington, D.C. the conservative principles that he spoke about so passionately during his campaign. He was seen as a man whose background, ideas and ideals were just what was needed to push back against the progressive agendas of more taxation, bigger government, immigration reform and a do nothing foreign policy. For many the hope was he would set things straight in the US Senate. For conservatives that hope has now become hype.
Conservative Floridians have now become disillusioned.
WDW has reported on how this happened. Some blame staff, some blame the influence on Rubio by Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham and others the go along to get along and get reelected siren call of lobbyists. Marco was a man of principle but then he decided to go on a different path than what he said during his campaign say many.
Marco Rubio is now viewed as the consummate politician. However, he can redeem himself, according to some. Will he go down with the immigration bill? That is the question.
