Marco Rubio

When you think you are ready for a fight, make sure you have everything you need and whatever weaknesses you have, clear them up or at least try.

On Thursday, GOP Presidential candidate Marco Rubio called GOP frontrunner Donald Trump “touchy and insecure” and ripped his performance in last week’s Republican presidential debate.

“He had a really bad debate performance last week,” Rubio told Kentucky Sports Radio, according to BuzzFeed. “He’s not well informed on the issues. He really never talks about issues and can’t have more than a 10-second soundbite on any key issue. And I think he’s kind of been exposed a little bit over the last seven days, and he’s a very touchy and insecure guy and so that’s how he reacts, and people can see through it.”

Let’s have an honest moment here. Rubio has flip-flopped so many times on illegal immigration that it’s clear nothing he says today can be trusted. He’s allowed the politics du jour to guide him — whatever he thinks will benefit him personally at the time, whatever it takes to stay relevant. In this sense, he’s got politics down pat.

But Rubio’s playing the game and folks aren’t so receptive to those reasons these days. It’s dishonest and self-serving. Foremost, it doesn’t serve Americans.

And Rubio is divided. He’s spoken to large crowds in Spanish, promising them the American dream, despite knowing that dream is subsidized by American taxpayers. And he’s spoken to large crowds in English, promising them that the American dream is still alive, without ever mentioning that under his will, they’re going to have to pay more to subsidize his compadres, that it’s going to be much harder to achieve.

I understand his divided loyalties. We could all have them. But he must get over his personal conflicts, vow allegiance solely to U.S. citizens, not just in words, but in actions and votes and stop playing both sides. That’s hard, understandably. But, if he’s ever to represent the U.S. as president, he must make that commitment, solely to us.

We’ve all had enough of the types who care only about remaining relevant just to pursue their personal goals. What We The People want today are politicians who care only about pursuing what’s best for The People, the citizens.

I think Rubio’s heart is good. But I also think his heart is divided. He’s got to look in the mirror, make a choice, and stick by it.

What do you think of Rubio’s attack on Trump? Should he try to clear up the perception of his amnesty positions including his latest of allowing Syrian Refugees into the U.S. while putting them in camps?
