Even going so far as to call him a Tea Party Senator. The exchange takes place starting just before the 4:20 mark of the video below.
Kudlow: ...as a Tea Party Senator how would you deal with it?...
Rubio: ...Let me back you up on that for just a second. When you talk about the Tea Party- I am a Republican.
There is a growing trend in the MSM to vilify tea party goers as extremists, radicals, birthers, racist and the list goes on.
I am none of the above and I attended the 912 March on Washington. I was there because I do NOT want big Government, higher taxes, and government health care. I was joined by about a million other Americans that feel the same way. I was not paid to be there and neither were they.
I was there to support freedom.
Marco Rubio is NOT a Tea Party senator or candidate. He is a republican that believes in the principles of the founding Fathers. IF some of those principles are reflected by the Tea Party movement, then so be it. You can't paint with a broad brush when trying to define the Tea Party movement.
Here is what Marco Rubio DOES support about the Tea Party movement.
