Marco Rubio Hails Tim Scott’s Appointment to the U.S. Senate

By Javier Manjarres

Tim_Scott_251South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s decision to appoint Congressman Tim Scott to the U.S. Senate is being welcomed by one of the Senate’s rising stars and potential 2016 Republican Presidential candidate, Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Rubio is considered one of outgoing Senator Jim DeMint’s protege, and many within the Republican grassroots believe that Rubio, DeMint and Scott are all cut from the same conservative cloth.





rubio“I applaud Governor Nikki Haley’s decision to send Tim Scott to represent the people of South Carolina in the United States Senate. I’ve gotten to know Congressman Scott since his election to the House of Representatives two years ago and know him to be a passionate, thoughtful and sincere advocate for the people of South Carolina and for limited government principles. He is a worthy successor to my good friend Senator Jim DeMint, who remains a role model for those of us drawn to public service and the desire to keep America an exceptional nation. I look forward to working with soon-to-be Senator Scott in the months and years ahead to advance the principles of a limited and effective government.”-U.S. Senator Marco Rubio

    ” …cut from the same conservative cloth.”
    NOPE – like it matters anymore.
    The “Overton Window” has moved so far to the left that what WAS ‘liberal’ is now ‘conservative’ at best. For anyone to consider Rubio a conservative is either misguided or not being honest. DeMint – sorry, but he voted for gov’t expansion under Progressive Bush 2. And while I welcome the pick of Tim Scott – does he want to eliminate the EPA, DoE, Dept. of Socialist Education? How about PAYGO, which the Dem’s passed a few years back. How about a balanced budget – NOW, not 10 years from now?

    America, Land of the Free, is over as we knew it. There are too many sheeples on the gov’t dole – either as a recepient of an entitlement program or as a gov’t employee …both ‘classes’ ARE on the gov’t dole.

    Even though Gov. Haley picked Rep. Scott because he is intelligent, articulate, and genuinely conservative, Twitter is on fire with criticism from the lefties.

    Cries of “House Negro”, “token”, and “Uncle Tom” are rampant. How dare a black man think for himself and escape from the progressive plantation.

    Yep, scratch a progressive, reveal a racist.

      You always know who the racist in the room is. It is the one pointing the finger yelling, “RACSIST”!

      The lefties are the worst. They are already calling him “not black enough” and he can’t be a true “black man” because of course, he’s not a communist like them.
