That makes two of us….
Rush Limbaugh offered that off-hand endorsement of Marco Rubio after Florida’s newest Senator announced that he would oppose any more short-term spending bills in Congress.
Meanwhile, Rubio has a few other ideas as well, notably to cut off the EPA’s efforts to expand its regulatory reach. His office announced earlier today that Rubio would attach an amendment to “every major bill” in the Senate to cut off funding for EPA enforcement of “job-destroying numeric nutrients regulations,” as well as rescind authority for spending of any unused stimulus funding.
One could argue that Rubio is too “inexperienced” to be a serious Presidential contender. Well, I don’t recall the current Oval Office occupant sticking in any job longer than two years. Rubio has him up on that by a mile. And, Rubio was the Speaker of the House in the Florida Legislature. Those two facts are just off the top of my head.
I’ve been wondering when Rubio would begin to flex his leadership muscles in the Senate. Mark this week as the beginning of the rise of Marco Rubio.
