Marco Rubio Brilliantly Responds To Hillary ‘Yesterday’ Remarks

Marco Rubio Brilliantly Responds To Hillary ‘Yesterday’ Remarks

Team Marco scores again

It seems every time you turn around, the Hillary Clinton campaign team is attempting to copy Marco Rubio. She scheduled her official campaign announcement the day after him.

On Saturday during a campaign event (some of her supporters have laughably attempted to claim this was the “official official” announcement), she brought up a theme of ‘yesterday’, using the song of the same name by the Beatles to proclaim her GOP opponents were all about the past.

Ironically, it was a similar theme that Marco Rubio used during his campaign launch. During his announcement he said:

“Just yesterday, a leader from yesterday began a campaign for president by promising to take us back to yesterday.”

Because of that, Rubio’s team was ready to respond to Hillary and did so with this ad:

Aside from leaving Rubio that opening, it would seem odd that Hillary Clinton, who at the age of 67, and is wants to secure the votes of younger Americans, would choose a song recorded 50 years ago to attempt to make a point about her Republican counterparts.

If anything, this shows Rubio’s team is ready to respond quickly when they need to. It also reveals that perhaps Hillary’s team should at the very least, try to be more original.

And somebody’s already parodied Rubio’s parody, to take a shot at Jeb!

Its not pertinent to this story but had to share it for us Old timers RE ; Naacp woman white to black Rozawhatever theheckhernameis The Watermelon Woman ( for those too young see Wickepedia The Watermelon Man 1970

The way I see it, Hitlary shot herself in the foot by talking about “yesterday”.

She is the candidate from yesterday.
She IS the “leaders and ideas from the past.”

The only thing “new” that she brings is an unprecedented level of greed, corruption, manipulation and disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the American people.

Daughter: Do I know that song Mom?

Mom: No, that’s a song Gammy used to listen to on her Victrola.

Daughter: What’s a Victrola?

Mom: Shh, listen to Gammy’s speech.

Although I support Sen. Rubio politically, I also happen to believe the founders and framers meant what they said when they required the president and vice-president to be natural born Citizens, that is persons born not subject to a foreign sovereignty. Unfortunately, Sen Cruz was born a US citizen and a citizen of Cuba.

If we abandon the natural born citizenship clause now, it will be exploited by others who come after Sen. Rubio who may not share his political convictions and expose us all to the greatest threat to the Republic the founders and framers of the US Const., knew well, feared most, and warned us all against: the loss of our freedoms and liberties not from an external military threat but from political subversion from within our own political system. There is no absolute, fail-safe, clause or provision that will protect the Republic from just such a fate, but if we weaken this provision now that fate will come sooner rather than later and future generations of Americans will look back and give us the blame.

Lastly, there are plenty of other political venues Sen. Rubio can help this country move forward without forever weakening this increasing essential precaution the founders and framers of the US Const. have specifically warn us all about.

      When you realize virtually all executive power in this country is held by one person as the command in chief of this nation’s armed forces, and you also take into account the vast increase in both the destructive force and speed modern weapons now have over their 18th Century counterparts, you begin to realize just how important this requirement has become in today’s turbulently shrinking world, and how important it has become to apply the strictest of definitions to the “natural born Citizen” requirement in the presidential qualification clause, the one with the least doubt, rather than standing on the threshold of abandoning it altogether forever.

        Henry Hawkins in reply to davidfarrar. | June 15, 2015 at 2:10 pm

        Like Marco Rubio, my father was born in another country. He enlisted at age 17 in the US Marines and spent the next 4 years fighting in the South Pacific. Then he spent 27 years on the Detroit Police Force, durng which time I was born in 1955.

        According to you, I shouldn’t be allowed to run for president. I am considered by you to be a major threat.

        Please accept a hardy ‘fuck you’ from a full on, 100% American citizen.

    MikeE in reply to davidfarrar. | June 15, 2015 at 11:50 am

    I’m confused. Are you talking about Rubio or Cruz? You mention both.

    tom swift in reply to davidfarrar. | June 15, 2015 at 12:16 pm

    the loss of our freedoms and liberties not from an external military threat but from political subversion from within our own political system.

    Unfortunately, the “natural born citizen” clause does nothing to protect us from our own home-grown fascisti.

    A very good argument has been made that that “natural born citizen” stipulation was intended to protect the newly-independent US from Alexander Hamilton, a native of Nevis (now part of the Federation of Saint Chrisopher and Nevis, a Commonwealth nation). The fear was that Hamilton, a dedicated Anglophile, might, if President, manage to lead the country back into the British Empire; this was obviously anathema to the Francophile faction (Franklin, Jefferson, et al). Aside from his Anglophilia, Hamilton’s obvious talents in finance, law, diplomacy, administration, and infantry assault made him a potentially formidable figure, and in fact he had been maneuvering himself into an almost Napoleonic position since the Revolution. (An obvious weakness of this theory was that the rise of Napoleon himself hadn’t happened yet.)

    So it’s not obvious that the “natural born citizen” clause has much relevance today. The problem with Obama isn’t foreign origin or his early formative years spent in Asia rather than the US, it’s the fact that he’s a socialist, a blatant racist, and basically kinda dumb.

      Dave B. in reply to tom swift. | June 18, 2015 at 11:27 am

      Considering that the Federal Convention included language in Article II of the Constitution for the specific purpose of making persons like Hamilton eligible for the presidency, I’d say your “very good argument” is pretty much nonsense.

I’m not beguiled by rhetorical flourishes or visual appeal. I examine the documented actions and in-actions of a candidate.

Sen. Rubio has a record as a professional politician going back to his days in the Florida state house and it is one of abysmal failure in protecting American sovereignty and security. He was not a haplessly naive up-n-comer who got snookered into his role in the Gang of 8. He was already a seasoned, verbally agile proponent of increased immigration to favor the interests of mega-wealthy donors in business sectors and the vote harvesting institutions like universities and the so-called “faith based” resettlement agencies.

Not only has he consistently turned a deaf ear to the pleadings and concerns of his American constituents over the years, his staff and appointees have openly and in private meetings denounced Americans with the most despicable pejoratives. There exists an anti-American sentiment that goes way beyond typical ethnocentricity and can often remain veiled with charming deceit. Occasionally, however, it rises to the surface and roars. Long time residents of Miami, FL know this.

There are many Floridians, including those of us who previously supported Sen. Rubio, who hoped he would run for POTUS, fail, and thereby rid ourselves of one more duplicitous politician. A risky proposition, perhaps. But we hope, after the last 8 years, people will have learned that “speechifying” and superficial attributes like race, ethnicity and gender are irrelevant to choosing leader of the free world.

    “…his staff and appointees have openly and in private meetings denounced Americans with the most despicable pejoratives. There exists an anti-American sentiment that goes way beyond typical ethnocentricity and can often remain veiled with charming deceit.”

    I’d be interested to see your links and any other support for that.

      DuraMater in reply to Ragspierre. | June 15, 2015 at 11:56 am

      Not necessarily the most recent, but to my mind one of the most egregious examples occurred when one of Rubio’s representatives, an immigration attorney who was helping fashion the gang of 8 legislative language, proclaimed Americans to be less desirable employees than foreigners.

      I will try to find exact quote with link. But this type of claptrap and attitude pervades the open borders proponents and frankly, has poisoned our culture, locally and nationally.

      Miami is fast becoming a two-tiered Euro-socialist economy. It is not just the importation of poor and unskilled but also (and for decades)the systematic displacement of persons with advanced degrees and experience in tech and STEM sectors by foreign nationals, many with questionable credentials but a willingness to work under the table or at reduced remuneration. And it doesn’t stop there. The number of F1 and H1Bs who overstay their visas and violate immigration laws is substantial. Immigration attorneys prosper.
      Sorry, I went off on a tangent. Will try to get back with link later.

        Henry Hawkins in reply to DuraMater. | June 15, 2015 at 2:15 pm

        “an immigration attorney who was helping fashion the gang of 8 legislative language, proclaimed Americans to be less desirable employees than foreigners.”

        Yeah, so? To a business, an illegal acceppting $5/hr under the table is obviously preferable to an American making double that or more above the table where unemployment insurance has to be paid, FICA, etc., plus the costs of the book keeping.

        Bring the link so we can judge the context of the quote. Otherwise, don’t bother.

          I think his claim might emanate from a 2013 article in the New Yorker in which Ryan Lizza claimed that some mystery Rubio aide said that “There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can’t cut it”.

          Later, when approached for comment, Rubio spokesman Alex Conant pushed back: “We strongly objected to the magazine including that background quote in the piece because it’s not what Sen. Rubio believes or has ever argued.”

          DuraMater in reply to Henry Hawkins. | June 15, 2015 at 7:20 pm

          This entry actually belongs below Amy of Florida’s post but can’t see reply link so will just post here…..

          Lizza responded to comments and rebuttal by Rubio spox re his New Yorker quote with the following. Turns out it was two aids and their expressed opinions were applicable to American workers in all sectors, NOT, as Alex Conant tried to dismiss as dialogue concerning Chamber of Comm v Unions. Here’s the link with excerpt:
          https://twitter.com/RyanLizza/status/346736094932504576/photo/1
          Ryan Lizza: Well, their argument is, what, that they have American workers for these jobs, they don’t need this program.

          Rubio Aide 1: Yeah. I mean, one of the problems you have with this, “Oh there’s American workers who are unemployed.” There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can’t cut it. There shouldn’t be a presumption that every American worker is a star performer. There are people who just can’t get it, can’t do it, don’t want to do it. And so you can’t obviously discuss that publicly.”

          Rubio Aide 2: But the same is true for the high-skilled workers.

          Rubio Aide 1: Yes, and the same is true across every sector, in government, in everything.

          Henry Hawkins in reply to Henry Hawkins. | June 15, 2015 at 7:20 pm

          Thank you, Amy. It had the smell of the picked cherry sans context.

          DuraMater in reply to Henry Hawkins. | June 16, 2015 at 1:25 am

          True enough, there are some who will sacrifice principles for profit and power. There are also those for whom no sacrifice is involved because they have no principles anyway.

    Carl in reply to DuraMater. | June 15, 2015 at 5:02 pm

    I, too, as a Florida voter, would love to see support for these claims. I doubt they exist.
    Rubio is a politician. He is also human. He obviously made a mistake in joining the Gang of 8’s proposal. I do believe he realizes that he did make a mistake. It happens. Give him a pass on that one. Nobody is perfect. IMHO Cruz couldn’t win a general election. Neither could Paul. Or Huckabee. Or Santorum, Carson, Trump, etc., etc. We must focus on the prize and not the polemic. Walker or Kasich with Rubio, Fiorina or Haley would be my ticket.

Yo, Granny, the actual lyrics are:”Yesterday, all MY troubles seemed so far away. Now it looks as though they’re here to stay…” Yes Hil, commodity trading, Vince Foster and travel office staffing issues were nothing compared to today’s problems like Benghazi, foreign donations and private email servers. Hope they stay during your entire campaign and you’ll be believing in yesterday soon enough.

oh yeah. that was a deft twist of her words to Marco’s benefit. Loved it.

Henry Hawkins | June 15, 2015 at 2:20 pm

Rubio’s immigration trick still sticks in my craw, and he still, for me anyway, carries a hard to define taint of ‘secret RINO’ about him, given the way he fell in with but he is dynamic on the stump. Plus his beautiful wife will be an asset in the campaign.

    Henry Hawkins in reply to Henry Hawkins. | June 15, 2015 at 2:21 pm

    Fell in with: the gang of eight.

      Eskyman in reply to Henry Hawkins. | June 15, 2015 at 4:18 pm

      I agree Henry; I quite liked Rubio up until the Gang of 8 involvement. Then I realized that I couldn’t trust anything that he said. Since then I support Ted Cruz, and hope that he’s up to the herculean task of throwing off the regulatory and social shackles that have been placed upon Americans. I pray that he succeeds!

      It’s a real pity that the ‘Natural Born’ clause wasn’t applied to Obama, but that boat has now sailed. It’s too bad that ‘Natural Born’ wasn’t defined in the Constitution, but it wasn’t; understanding of the term today is nothing like it was understood in 1790. If it had been applied in 2008, we wouldn’t be in this mess now, would we.

      Nothing can be proved about the usurper desecrating the White House, as there are no records that can be produced in court, even should you find a court willing to take the case; it should not be possible for anyone in public office to shroud everything about themselves in mystery but he has managed it, with the help of countless ‘civil servants’ who are fully committed Marxists/Democrats a la Lois Lerner. Those are the real enemy, but they are well protected in their domains.

      Whoever can root out these traitors I will support!

Marco Rubio Brilliantly Responds To Hillary ‘Yesterday’ Remarks

Note to headline writer: We didn’t need that adverb about brilliance. We can make our own evaluations of Rubio’s response – and this turned out to be a good one. But being told how we’re to think about it is a bit too much like being among a rally for the left.

    This article has all the earmarks of having come from the same cabal that published a puff piece on Carlos Curbello (R-FL-27) back in 2014.

    Florida congressional seat in dist. 27 was occupied by Dem. Joe (cerumen eating) Garcia. There were 4 potential Republican challengers, only one with maturity and relevant professional background. Unfortunately he was also the only gringo, a fact relentlessly hammered by the other three candidates and the Miami Herald. You see, Curbello was the preselected GOP tool.

    Just as I predicted on this blog site, in response to the obvious propaganda piece, Curbello has turned out to be the quintessential get-a-long-go-a-long GOP water boy, taking his marching orders from the establishment…constituents be d***ed, just like Rubio.

Unfortunately, Marco was born “yesterday”. He needs to grow up first and then run for president.

    Erudite Mavin in reply to Mark. | June 16, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    Rubio is 44, several running are in their 40s.
    He is old enough to be a grandfather, mine were 42 when I was born

Captain Keogh | June 16, 2015 at 5:49 pm

I wish he had more experience.

Erudite Mavin | June 16, 2015 at 6:04 pm

Rubio is the adult in the room the way he responds to Hillary and how he handled the NY Times smear.
