Just when we thought Senator Rubio was officially done with his adorable little Tea Party darling routine, he’s putting the mask back on, folks!
He’s dusting off his long-forgotten copy of the Constitution and he’s sitting in the back of your church with his arms outstretched towards the heavens! I expect to see him riding horseback tomorrow in full colonial garb with Old Glory in tow to celebrate Independence Day!
According to an article by Justin Sink over at The Hill (thanks to Jedediah Bila for bringing it to my attention), Senator Rubio is planning on introducing a 20 week abortion ban in the Senate after the July 4 recess.
How brave. I’m sure it has nothing to do with his plummeting support among the people who propelled him to such (undeserved) prestige in the first place. No, of course not. After all Senator Rubio is the staunchest of Conservatives according to the omniscient GOPe and their ilk in the media. He would never do anything like legalize 12 million “undocumented” aliens and further endanger the job market for blue collar Americans.
As pointed out in the article (and is obvious to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention), this bill is “unlikely to proceed in the Democrat-controlled Senate.” But you already knew that didn’t you, Mr. Rubio? In fact you’re relying on it. You don’t actually want any liberal or progressive boats to be rocked (conservative ones be damned). You just want us to think you’re serious about implementing positive change. How brave.
In other words, if you support the recent resurgence of Pro-Life energy following the equally brave and not at all self-serving antics of Texas state Senator Wendy Davis, then you must just be so proud of Senator Rubio and his noble quest to restore just a little bit of much needed sanity to the Congress in regards to supporting the right to life for ALL Americans, right?
Of course we support the message. We, unlike Sen. Davis, believe that all Americans are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these, are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. So we will support your efforts, Senator Rubio, because we have our eye on the ball—and unlike you our “ball” is not our own reelection. We will not however continue to support you. Your bridge is burned, and we will do everything within our power to ensure your prompt replacement.
Thankfully it didn’t take too long, but the Senator from Florida has confirmed the suspicion many of us Conservatives had from jump about his bona fides. After all the hype he has proven capable of not much more than delivering a good speech, wearing the hell out of a suit, and having the haircut of a Disney Prince.
So nice try, GOPe. Who else ya got?
