I so look forward to voting for Marco Rubio, someday

Whether 2016, 2020, 2024 or beyond, Senator Rubio has “president” written all over him. The following is from remarks he gave in the Senate a couple of days ago in conjunction with Senator Ayotte of New Hampshire.

Rubio rightfully focuses on creating the conditions necessary to job creation as the best and only wise way to raise the revenue the government needs, along with the need to restore sanity to spending. And he righteously calls out the Democrats for offering “ideas” that are obviously bad, just to please their base in a game of cheap politics.

Twenty minutes long, and well worth your time:

Here’s a transcript of the key passage, courtesy of The Weekly Standard:

We don’t need new taxes. We need new taxpayers, people that are gainfully employed, making money and paying into the tax system. Then we need a government that has the discipline to take that additional revenue and use it to pay down the debt and never grow it again. That’s what we should be focused on, and that’s what we’re not focused on.

You look at all these taxes being proposed, and here’s what I say. I say we should analyze every single one of them through the lens of job creation, issue number one in America. I want to know which one of these taxes they’re proposing will create jobs. I want to know how many jobs are going to be created by the plane tax. How many jobs are going to be created by the oil company tax I heard so much about. How many jobs are created by going after the millionaires and billionaires the president talks about? I want to know: How many jobs do they create?

Emphasis added. Yeah, baby!

    I have the same question for him I have for every other candidate before really supporting: Will you close the borders and send those who don’t belong here home? Otherwise, I’ll hold my nose and maybe vote, though I didn’t for Juan McCain.

    Great post. Absolutely love him.

    Just think if Rubio was a Democrap looking to run for the presidency: You’d hear our esteemed Chief-in-Faux-Pax ridiculousness (the V.P., not Obhammud) tell us that “He’s clean, doesn’t even look greasy, wears his clothes nicely and is grammatically correct most of the time!”

    For a youngun, Rubio really seems presidential already. I just wonder what he’ll do to screw it up?

  4. Great White Rat says:

    Agreed. For almost a year I’ve been saying that Rubio will be president some day.

    Rubio has a deep love for America and faith in its people and a marvelous gift for communicating that. I think I even posted something along those lines here, last October or thereabouts, comparing him to a young Ronald Reagan.
