Marco Rubio Adresses America's Debt Crisis

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding today’s announcement by Standard & Poor’s that it has cut its credit outlook on the U.S. to negative:

“How many more warning signs will it take for Washington to realize we are facing a debt crisis that will ruin America?

“Today, it’s a major credit rating agency like S&P bluntly saying they don’t believe Washington politicians have the fortitude to get serious about our debt. This will send even more entrepreneurs running for the hills and taking their best ideas with them as investment capital becomes more elusive. Eventually, the specter of higher inflation will erode the dollar, diminish consumer spending power, and make it harder for families to buy cars and homes or pay tuition. And before you know it, we will have lost the essence of what has made America exceptional for centuries. None of these scenarios are a question of ‘if,’ but rather a question of ‘when,’ unless we act now.

“Americans should be sickened by today’s announcement and Washington’s failure to make solving our debt crisis our number one priority. Contrary to the carefree attitude too many Washington politicians have, we can’t just snap our fingers and make this go away. Instead, we need to rally behind a clear set of policies that will create jobs through tax and regulatory reform, save our social safety net and national defense priorities, and show the world that America is serious about its debt and has adopted a credible plan to tackle it.”

Video:Marco Rubio's Closing Argument. A Generational Choice

I guess this may be one of the last posts I produce on this site. It has been an honor and a pleasure to provide updates and information to those who support Florida senatorial candidate Marco Rubio. I hope I have helped you in deciding to vote for him.

I first heard of Rubio in early 2009 and was fortunate enough to be attending a conference in June of 2009 where Rubio spoke to a large crowd of attendees about his vision for Florida and for the entire nation. He was basically a newly minted candidate and was way behind in the polls. He overcame the opposition with fresh ideas, principles, integrity, and the message that America is an exceptional nation that deserves the kind of leader that will preserve it's greatness.

Please take the time to listen to Rubio's closing arguments. My next post will be to announce his Victory in the 2010 Florida race. Then I will move on to 2012.

Thanks for visiting.

Marco Rubio releases statement upon the death of his Father

Last night Marco Rubio released a statement regarding the death of his Father.
Mario Rubio was 83:

“My father knew hard work and struggle from very early in his life. His mother died when he was only 9 years old. The day after his mother was buried he went to work with his father and did not stop working until he was 78 years old.

“He was by far the most unselfish person I have ever known, always focused on others, and never on his own well being. He was especially determined to provide his children opportunities he himself never had.
“My dad worked as a street vendor, security guard, apartment building manager and crossing guard. But for most of his life he was a bartender, and by all accounts a great one. But his greatest success came from the two most important jobs he ever had: husband and father.

“He was very proud of my public service. And over the last 18 months he became an expert channel surfer, constantly searching for my next television interview.
“I was blessed to be raised by a world class father. And I thank God for allowing my father to live long and healthy enough to see that the sacrifices he made for us were not in vain.”

I remember this video of Marco Rubio recalling the relationship between himself and his Father and it reminded me very much of the one between my Father and myself.
All politics aside, I hope you will listen to the portion of the video that includes the story told by Marco about himself and his Father:

Video: Marco Rubio's Innovative Idea to Decrease the Debt

From Marco Rubio Campaign

RUBIO: “The second idea that we had is allowing and empowering individual every day Americans and businesses to specifically go after the debt themselves through their own tax returns.

“What does that mean? It’s pretty simple. You put a check-off box at the top of everyone’s tax returns. If you check that box off, you can designate that up to 10 percent of your tax dollars – the money you’re paying that year in taxes – go directly to debt retirement.

“Two things would happen. Number one: that money you’re designating is now protected from spending. In essence, politicians in Washington are not going to be able to get a hold of that money and use it to grow government. It must be used to pay down debt.

“But the second thing it will do is send a very powerful and clear signal. Imagine what would happen if millions and millions of Americans checked that box off. I can guarantee you that congressmen and senators are going to check out how many people from their state checked that box.

Marco Rubio Shatters Fundraising Record

Florida senatorial candidate Marco Rubio announced today that his campaign has received more than $4.5 million dollars in campaign contributions for the 2nd Quarter.

This is a new national record for a senatorial candidate.

I just left a Blogger conference call held by the Rubio campaign in which they covered several important issues and confirmed to Hotair's Ed Morrissey that the fundraising totals were indeed correct.

Over 75,000 donors have contributed to Rubio's campaign.
99% of the donors have not maxed out their ability to contribute.
The average contribution is $85.50.
Pretty impressive stuff.

Among the other issues discussed were the Deep Water Horizon oil spill and it's affect on Florida.

Rubio was asked whether he thought that Florida's Governor Charlie Crist was leveraging his office for political gain in regard to the oil spill. Rubio said , "It's indisputable." He went on say, "We can not use Northwest Florida as a prop."

Rubio said that he would soon release  major proposals focusing on the economy. The proposals will include those designed to grow the economy, create new jobs, and promote new industries.

Rubio Campaign Exposes Crist as a Media Hog

Charlie Crist has continued to use the disaster of the Gulf oil spill as a vehicle to further his political ambitions.

The Marco Rubio campaign has put together a clever and ACCURATE assessment of the tactics being used by Crist to bolster his political career.

Crist's fundraising numbers have plummeted so he is using every means possible to gain FREE media attention in order to promote his democrat agenda.

From the Rubio Campaign:
Miami, FL – By the numbers, Charlie Crist’s call for a special session to ban something that is already banned in Florida is nothing more than another Washington-style political gimmick meant to distract from the real issues confronting the Gulf Coast:
0 oil spills will be prevented by Charlie Crist’s constitutional amendment.

0 real world impact of Charlie Crist’s constitutional amendment banning something already banned in state law.

0 tourists will re-book their travel to Florida because of Charlie Crist’s constitutional amendment.

0 skimmers will be freed-up because of Charlie Crist’s political photo-op.

0 fishermen in the Panhandle would be helped because of Charlie Crist’s constitutional amendment.

0 claims will be sped up to impacted Florida Gulf Coast residents and businesses because of Charlie Crist’s constitutional amendment.

0 small businesses will be able to keep their doors open because of a constitutional amendment.

2 complete flip-flops Charlie Crist has done on offshore drilling.

2 points down in the polls is where Crist discovered he was in the U.S. Senate race when he decided to call for a special session.

4 hours between the release of a bad poll for Crist and his call for a political sideshow special session.

$120,000 will be spent by taxpayers for Charlie Crist’s political photo-op special session.

Fox News' Megyn Kelly holds court on Turncoat candidate Charlie Crist

Fox News' Megyn Kelly discusses Florida Governor Charlie Crist's refusal to return the campaign donations made to him during his run for US senate as a republican.

Crist continued to accept donations late in to his primary campaign by claiming that he would NOT switch parties.

Crist strongly expressed his determination to remain a republican in his now infamous appearance on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. Here is the video of Crist lying to voters.

Crist was being stomped by his rival, former Florida house speaker, republican Marco Rubio.

Crist was more than 20 points down in the polls when he decided that he was no longer a "Reagan Republican" and would run as an Independent. That was just weeks after his appearance on Fox News Sunday. He then decided it was OK to keep the cash of those that believed his lies. Crist, I'm gonna KEEP IT!

Here is the video of "Kelly's Court" :

Charlie Crist: The oil spill is just a Nuisance

Florida's Governor Charlie Crist conducted an interview with CBS News' anchor Harry Smith on Pensacola Beach on Monday.

During the interview, Smith asks Crist if he is concerned that the Gulf oil spill may be making the water toxic.

Crist's response?

"It's much more of a nuisance than it is anything else right now."

Crist goes on to say that the spill itself was a catastrophe.

However, if you recall, I recently posted a quote from Charlie Crist stating that the oil spill wasn't as if "the sky is falling"

It seems that Crist has developed the same attitude as the Obama administration when it come to dealing the oil spill.

The nuisance quote comes in about the 30 second mark of the video:
