Florida Sen. Marco Rubio - First a Liar, Now a Coward

Increasingly the Face of the GOP

Back when he thought he was going to be President of the United States Florida Senator Marco Rubio said emphatically he would not run for re-election to the Senate from Florida.

Marco Rubio is a U.S. senator. And he just can’t stand it anymore.
“I don’t know that ‘hate’ is the right word,” Rubio said in an interview. “I’m frustrated.”
This year, as Rubio runs for president, he has cast the Senate — the very place that cemented him as a national politician — as a place he’s given up on, after less than one term. It’s too slow. Too rule-bound. So Rubio, 44, has decided not to run for his seat again. It’s the White House or bust.
“That’s why I’m missing votes. Because I am leaving the Senate. I am not running for reelection,” Rubio said in the last Republican debate, after Donald Trump had mocked him for his unusual number of absences during Senate votes.

Then when it became clear he would not be President, that he would not be the Republican nominee, that he would not be tapped for VP, that he could not compete with Donnie he said he would run.  Nothing really new here, just another lying politician, they are common in both parties.  And in remarkable display of tolerance Florida re-elected him.  Ugh.

Now that it is time to face the voters in Town Halls, Sen. Rubio just doesn't have the guts to do it.  From Taegan Goddard.

Rubio Says He Won’t Do Town Hall Meetings

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) won’t participate in town hall meetings because he says political activists will crash them to create a media spectacle of people who “heckle and scream at me in front of cameras,” Politico reports.
Said Rubio: “They are not town halls anymore. What these groups really want is for me to schedule a public forum, they then organize three, four, five, six hundred liberal activists in the two counties or wherever I am in the state.”
Now this is not uncommon, most pols are hypocrites.  It's just that Rubio is so darn good at it. Are'nd from the Boston Globe here's what Chris Christie had to say

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, R, said Sunday that the Trump administration needs to be more mindful of ‘‘perception’’ and urged GOP lawmakers not to shy away from holding town hall events, though they might be confronted by protesters.
‘‘I understand why members of Congress don’t like it,’’ he said of the town halls. ‘‘But you know what? You asked for the job. Go do it.’’
Gosh how bad is Little Marco that he has to be school by Christie?
