Marco Rubio: Rant.Grimace.Repeat.

Poor Marco Rubio had some kind of Robotic Meltdown last week at the GOP debate and found himself like an old 78 — Google it kids — that was skipping and skipping and skipping and skipping and—

Enough! Let’s backtrack: back in 2012 when Marco Rubio said of Barack Obama:
“This is a choice between a guy that has no idea what he’s doing, and a guy that does.”
Obama was the one who had no idea what to do while Rubio was the one who knew everything; and then  Rubio took to his Facebook page and began to incessantly repeat that mantra:
“This isn’t a choice between two bad guys or one bad guy and one good guy, this is a choice between a guy that has no idea what he’s doing, and a guy that does.”
And then just a couple of months ago, on Fox news, of course, Rubio criticized a speech by Obama on the threat of ISIS:
“People first of all are scared because they sense the threat, it continues to grow, and the president doesn’t know what he’s doing. On Sunday night, he gave a speech that was supposed to reassure the American people and I think it made things worse. He gave a speech where he basically announced that, these are the problems that we have, but we’re not gonna change anything.”
Marco Rubio has said, repeatedly, that President Obama does not know what he’s doing and yet during last weekend’s GOP debate in New Hampshire he said this when he was attacked for being too inexperienced … a comparison to Obama as a one-term senator and Marco said:
“Let’s dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing, He knows exactly what he’s doing. Barack Obama is undertaking a systematic effort to change this country, to make America more like the rest of the world. That’s why he passed Obamacare and the stimulus and Dodd-Frank and the deal with Iran, it is a systematic effort to change America.”
And so Chris Christie called him out on his inexperience, again, and the fact that Rubio seems to rely on a 25-second sound-bite for an answer, to which Rubio replied:
“Let’s dispel with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is trying to change this country. He wants America to become more like the rest of the world. We don’t want to be like the rest of the world.”
And then, again, he said:
“We are not facing a president who doesn’t know what’s doing. He knows what he is doing. That’s why he’s done the things he’s done.”
Now, I am not a fan of Chris Christie, not since he whooshed through a buffet line and ate all the Pineapple Glazed Chicken before I could get some, but he is right about Rubio and his Manic, Robotic, Repetition of a single thought.

And Rubio wants to be president.

Yes, and Rubio wants to be president. Oddly, he hasn't yet figured what it is he wants to be president of. He'd like to be a guy that knows what he's doing... but he doesn't... or maybe he doesn't really want to... or not.

I just find it odd that anyone could consider voting for someone who was incapable of turning up occasionally to vote and do the job they were voted in to do.....too many votes?

I loved the part in the last Rep. debate when Rubio lashed out at Christie for not returning to NJ fast enough after the snowfall. When in the hell was the last time Rubio was in his seat in the Senate? That is the job he's getting paid for, yes?

Rubio seems really really dumb. He's able to memorize a few soundbite talking points and regurgitate them as needed, not really presidential timber.
