Paul and Rubio: Two “Tea Party” Candidates, Polar Opposites

When you see the big pictures it’s crystal clear. As I said the second Rubio stepped on the scene, he is a neo con. The exact term I used was “Marco Rubio Is A Neo Con Pussy” This thesis was PROVEN the second he was elected an within days ran to Tel Aviv to thank his masters and get his orders.

What were his orders? Follow kikestan and do exactly what it wants you to.


At almost the same moment Senator Rand Paul introduced a resolution to express the “sense of the Senate that the president does not have the power to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve actual or imminent threat to the nation,” Paul’s “tea party backed” colleague Marco Rubio resolved the almost exact opposite.

The Hill reports that Rubio wants Congress to approve a resolution authorizing Obama’s decision to attack Libya and giving him the authority to remove Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Rubio wrote:

I am writing to seek your support for bringing a bipartisan resolution to the Senate floor authorizing the president’s decision to participate in allied military action in Libya…

He went on to say removing Gadhafi from power is “in our national interest and therefore should authorize the president to accomplish this goal. To that end, the resolution should urge the president to recognize the Interim Transitional National Council as the legitimate government in Libya.”

Yesterday, Rubio in an interview with Neil Cavuto stated, “The President was right when he determined that Gaddafi must go….I wish he would’ve done it a little bit sooner.”

The difference between Senator Paul and Senator Rubio on this issue couldn’t be more striking.

While Rubio ran as an “outsider” who was going to shake up the Washington establishment, his policies (including hiring former a aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, Cesar Conda, as his Chief of Staff) have turned out to be remarkably similar to the devastating Republican politics of the Bush era.

This debate goes to show, not all tea during the election was brewed the same.
