“[Marco] Rubio lost his own people and he doesn’t even realize it. He’s not going to make it past his primary as senator, let alone president. He’s in for a big surprise. … He might as well switch parties right now. He’s done.”
Juan Fiol, a Miami Republican who volunteered for Rubio in 2010, and now feels like a betrayed, silly “fiol.”
I think comprehensive immigration reform is dead, and Rubio’s 2016 chances might be as well. Of course, the man is a shameless, unprincipled flip-flopper, so we probably shouldn’t count him out. Who are we going to believe a couple of years from now, the Rubio who will deny he ever sponsored the Senate bill or our lying eyes watching video of his doing just that?
