Rubio Will Deliver Response To State Of The Union

Rubio Will Deliver Response To State Of The Union
UPI

Following President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday, a Republican response to the President’s message will be delivered by Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

Rubio, a favorite among some conservatives, said he will take the opportunity to discuss how limited government is the answer to many of the biggest problems facing the Nation.

“I’m honored to have this opportunity to discuss how limited government and free enterprise have helped make my family’s dreams come true in America,” said Rubio, according to The Hill.

He is also expected to touch on GOP policies aimed at helping middle-class Americans, as well as immigration.

“Marco Rubio is one of our party’s most dynamic and inspiring leaders. He carries our party’s banner of freedom, opportunity and prosperity in a way few others can. His family’s story is a testament to the promise and greatness of America,” House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement on Wednesday.

“He’ll deliver a GOP address that speaks from the heart to the hopes and dreams of the middle class; to our party’s commitment to life and liberty; and to the unlimited potential of America when government is limited and effective.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that Rubio was a good candidate to deliver a response to the President’s speech because the Senator would “contrast the Republican approach to the challenges we face with President Obama’s vision of an ever-bigger government and the higher taxes that would be needed to pay for it.”

Rubio has recently made headlines taking a central role in negotiations over immigration reform, hoping to sell conservatives on a bipartisan Senate blueprint for immigration.

    Why is it the GOP always has a RINO do the response to the State of the Union?

    • http://none Claire

      Harold Olsen: The GOP is depending on Rubio to get the Hispanic vote. Just another ploy. I agree with you, Rubio is a RINO but the GOP think he will be their savior (of sorts).

      • old hillbilly

        Mr. Amnesty comes to town! We need him like a hole in the head and 20 million locusts to help harvest our drought stricken crops

    • Nadzieja Batki

      Rubio is, ahem, hinting that he will be the presidential candidate in 2016. He has to get started with his conning of the Republicans early. Oh wait, he doesn’t have to con them as they are already Neo Leftists and no difference between them and the pure Leftists.

      • restorefreedom

        Very good doesn’t seem like to many people can see what you have pointed out there is no difference both parties totally suck and are run by neocons!

      • Dennis

        An then there was light, its good to see the light, :-)

    • rendarsmith

      Because they’re too stupid to learn their lesson or listen to their constituents.

      Personally, I’d rather Allan West have some face time with Americans and inform them about the “progressive” ranks in the gubmint. Now that would be well worth watching. BTW, I caught some of panetta’s comments yesterday on c-span about the “sequester”. Did you know that if this “sequester” is allowed to happen, the gubmint, world, universe will collapse. Swear to God, (oops), said it again. Anyway, this guy is soooooo distraught at the notion of the gubmint having to take ANY haircut, that he basically believes, his, oops, our world will come to an end. Please contact your next of kin and advise them to write every gubmint creature they know and even the ones they don’t, and let’s put an end to this barbaric process of even considering removing 1 hair from the gubmint head.

    Yep.another Rhino

  • rendarsmith

    I wish the GOP would just collapse already so we can replace it with something else.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      Replace it with what? Parties that are based on values always get infiltrated by the Leftists and then do a shift to the ideology of the Left

      • http://comcast.com Thefisherman

        Replace him with another idiot,they are a few of them there.There all the same just dumber then the next

  • Sarah

    The desired future of America by the New World Order is one political party. As you can see it is working. The Republican Party is nothing more than progressives. They all want to be the top feeders when America falls. We The People are just not going to let that happen. No more Bushs’. No more Clintons’ and please, lets get rid of Karl Rove and Prince Preibus.

    • Dennis

      Lets take out the trask, All of it.

  • Shirley Shelburn

    All of you so called “democrats” should study U.S. history. What caused WWII. We are living the prelude to WWIII – if you don’t wake up it’s going to happen. China is sitting in the background waiting for our government to fail. Where will you be then? No middle class to pay your bills, no military to keep you safe, no guns in the hands of homeland patriots. Mexican drug cartels on our southern border. They have all the guns. Get a real life!

  • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

    AN HISPANIC REPUBLICAN-NOMINEE CAN NOT WIN IN 2016. RACE AND RELIGION WOULD IMPLODE.

    MOST AMERICANS HAVE NO PSYCHOLOGICAL ATTACHMENT TO HISPANICS – NOR, TRUST THEIR CAPABILITIES. MOREOVER, BEING “HISPANIC” WILL AUTOMATICALLY BRING-UP THE ISSUE OF HOW AMERICANS FEEL ABOUT CATHOLICISM. IT IS FAIR TO SAY MORMONISM CAUSED REPUBLICANS TO LOSE IN 2012.

    • Wellarmed

      Mr. Horton, I cannot speak for Republicans, but this libertarian did not use religion to remove Governor Romney from consideration. His record spoke for itself, and I am through voting for individuals that I trust will not do what they say.

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “Wellarmed,”

        I AGREE. I ALSO, VOTED FOR Governor Gary Johnson; IF Governor Jeb Bush IS NOT THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE, I WILL VOTE FOR THE LIBERTARIAN, AGAIN.

        IT IS OBVIOUS THE PLACING OF U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) AND Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton IN THE SPOTLIGHT IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL- AND “RESULTS-” DRIVEN REACTION TO THE KENYAN’S SUCCESS. IF A CAUCASIAN WAS PRESIDENT, Senator Rubio WOULD NOT BE GIVING THE REPUBLICAN RESPONSE.

  • Dad

    I think I’ll give it a miss… see how quickly Rubio was “bought” by that Romney RINO character. Romney lost for two reasons… first, it is hard to get excited about a socialistic “Republican,”
    …and second, he was offering jobs to people who don’t want to give up their handouts and go to work. Frankly, these people are not worthy of respect… nor civility.

  • jopa

    I think the GOP should let Sarah Palin and Donald Grump give it another try.

  • tncdel
    • Dennis

      I don’t need to read anything, He voted YES on the NDAA, Thats all i need to know about Rubio.

      • Wellarmed

        agreed

  • Pilar Chambers

    I want Obama out of the White House, he is a fraud and a liar. He is not an American citizen and in other documents and he is hiding and paid millions to have them seal. In other thing no body is saing about Voter Fraud, Obama did not win

  • Dennis

    By the way, Marco Rubio went to South America with Obama and Billary a year or so ago for a meeting with the bilderberg group, Let me guess, Obama for pres, (third term) Rubio for vic pres, and Billary pres. of the world bank.

  • Dennis

    By the way, just in-case Billary decides to run for Dictator of America, you should take this test, just a reminder.

      Eye opening. Truly!

      I do think she will win though and I could tell everyone why, but no one would like the answer. Any guesses?

  • Sheeto bandeeto

    Let me guess: Bush 41 gave us Clinton. Bush 43 gave us Barry. Jeb Bush is thinking of running, will most likely be the “conservative” vote and energy absorber I.e., efforts from the “right”, and the Marxist/collectivist/oligarchist international 1% machine will tie him, Jeb, to 43, so much so, that the only “candidate” as an option will be the whore. Of course, all the while giving the us electorate no real choice, just a obvious one……ladies, break out your hornrims, and your polyester pantsuits!
