Washington Post Steps Up Attacks on Marco Rubio

Last week, the Washington Post attacked Marco Rubio for “misrepresenting” his family’s story. The Post got called out by other newspapers for the Post’s egregious truth stretching to make its story fit. In the quotes the Washington Post cited, the reporter misrepresented the context of Marco Rubio’s remarks. It was true that Rubio had gotten some details wrong. But it was also very clear that they were the innocent mistakes of a son retelling his parents’ story. It was also true the Washington Post got parts of its reporting wrong.

But the Washington Post has not stopped. Now the paper is back at it premising a new article on the last story without nothing the Washington Post itself got key elements of its story wrong. This time, the Washington Post wants to make the case that Marco Rubio could be a risky Vice Presidential pick for the GOP.

Seriously.

We have a President of the United States who, for twenty years, worshiped in Jeremiah Wright’s church, had his house paid for by Tony Rezko, claimed his uncle freed Jews at Auschwitz, snorted cocaine, and got other key biographical details wrong and the Washington Post never seemed to think he was too risky.

The other angle of attack in the Washington Post is defending Univision’s smear of Rubio’s family. Marco Rubio refused to do an interview with the very liberal leaning network. After Rubio refused to do the interview, Univision ran a report on Marco Rubio’s brother-in-law being arrested 24 years ago for drug trafficking. Univision denies a connection and argues about the time line.

But somehow, according to the Washington Post, these two incidents make Rubio risky. There really is more of a story here than the Washington Post lets on.

Everyone knows that despite Rubio’s denials he is every Republican’s first choice for Vice President. The left cannot abide the first Hispanic Vice Presidential candidate being a Republican. The Democrats expect to have the black vote locked up in 2012 and they want the Hispanic vote locked up too. That would be made more difficult with Rubio on the Republican ticket.

So the left is using the Washington Post to attack Rubio now, just as the Obama Administration has begun attacking Mitt Romney now. The calculus is that Romney will be the nominee and Rubio the veep pick. Consequently, the left is on the attack now trying to damage Rubio’s reputation as much as possible. CNN reports the Democrats even have a PAC run by a former Harry Reid staffer engaged in this.

The Democrats are deathly afraid of what Marco Rubio as the GOP’s Vice Presidential nominee could do to Obama’s re-election chances and the long term fortunes of the Democrats within the Hispanic community. The Washington Post is running the Democrats’ attacks for them as part of the left.

Each attack shows just how scared of Marco Rubio the Democrats really are.

And they should be.

    The reason why we KNOW a natural born Citizens is not the same as a 14th-Amendment-first-sentnece-citizen is because three weeks before the adoption of this document, Alexsander Hamlition put forward the simple requirment of  ‘a Citizen’.   A week after this event, Washington receives John Jay’s letter, suggesting a stronger term of a ‘natural born’ citizen be used instead of  ‘a citizen’. Two weeks later, the ‘natural born’ term was adopted unamiously and without discussion by the convention. body.

    Suggesting that a 14th Amendment citizen  is a ”natural born Citizen” was specifically rejected by the Constitutional Convention and is unconstitutioinal.

    Obama hates his dead mother.

    He does not see that she loved his father. She was beyond rebellious. She searched for a black male, Muslim from Africa.

    Regular black male from here was not rebellious enough for her. Then she hooked up with another Muslim and took Obama with her to Indonesia.  

    This Obama finds cruel. More cruel was being raised by his rebellious mother’s mother.

    African Muslim daddy did not want Obama. 

    This person was never fit to be president. Obama’s trash. 

    No wonder he hates America, worshiped in Jeremiah Wright’s church, had his house paid for by Tony Rezko, claimed his uncle freed Jews at Auschwitz, snorted cocaine, and got other key biographical details wrong, liberal.

    And the biggest shocker, he smokes. America elected a smoker!

    I loved the comment by a FOX executive that Murdock saw in the
    Liberal bias of America’s MSM an opportunity to make money by establishing “an
    impartial news agency”. To me this bias was most apparent when the WP and the NYT
    run stories a month before the 2008 election claiming the Mineral Management Service
    of the Department of Interior was not properly overseeing environmental and
    safety issues in deep-water GOM drilling because they were cooperating with
    those they were supposed to supervise. I presume they meant abiding by all the
    rules and regulations rather than cooperating to achieve safe drilling because
    they put an environmental lawyer in charge of safety for deep water drilling
    and 10 months later we had what the media described as a massive environmental
    disaster with the extortion of 20 billion dollars from BP and the shutdown of
    one of the nation’s only oil producing areas.

    Let the liberals scream; all it does is make them look corrupt.  The Clinton machine was the last campaign to succeed like that, and Obama is no Clinton.  Americans were fooled once by a professional, they’re not going to be fooled a second time by an amateur.

    You are the clueless idiot and the vile pathetic hateful brainwashed fool. Go suck on yourself moron at least your education will be complete then.

  • Leon75065

    It is simple math. Sick brainwashed fools like you who believe all the hype and lies are the problem in this country. You fools are the disease that is killing it. So keep believing that Rubio is a conservative when he is nothing more than a disgusting establishment neo con liberal.
