GOP nominee Mitt Romney will endorse Sen. Marco Rubio - Repub Sources

According to Huffpo

The only one of the 3 leading candidates that supports TPP<>Free Trade, emptying the USA of meaningful careers (along with automation, of course) remaining is Rubio.
So it certainly makes sense for a Capital Investment guru and owner who thinks the financial manipulations of the meta level IS the economy would find his closest support set in Marco Rubio. I agree with many of Rubio’s FP stances, but this support for the economic suppression of the USA is too much.
I know all of the Smoot-Hawley arguments against killing free trade, but just because we hit China with a FAIR TRADE levy because of low labors costs whose sole existence is possible because of horrendous working conditions and standard of life conditions, does not mean we do the same to Germany, or France, or Great Britain, or Japan.

And we have our own offenders, FORD.

Again and to be clear, FREE TRADE MEANS we have agreed to SWAP MODEST improvement in rising prices, and modest gain in SOME lower prices, for the manufacturing, then engineering, and now R&D and higher education structure of the nation.

The improvement in Gross Profit did not go to workers who lost/are losing their jobs (in fact, TAA is a bill giving eco support to workers who WILL LOSE THEIRS JOBS because of TPP, the House and Senate KNOW THIS WILL HAPPEN AND DID NOT CARE).

We all know where this rise in profit from dropping high paid American workers (and taxes) went and THIS is the beating heart of Bernie’s contention that the economy is rigged.

Rubio can beat HRC, but there will be a decisive mass of folks who will hear Bernie yelling about free trade and rigged economy (THE SAME SUBJECT) and worry their sliding income position will be lost totally to the equivalent of the Bane Capitals, or Goldman Sachs, or Kochs (all one goopy object) out there who donate to Rubio.

If Rubio is the nominee, EVERY VOTER more concerned about their job and its future than Afghanistan and Syria is voting for Bernie (if he beats Hillary). If Hillary is nominated, BOTH PARTIES are in for a STORM of CENTRIPETAL TORNADOES, because HRC<>Rubio means MORE OF THE SAME ECONOMY.

I don’t think Cruz can reach these democrats and independents who are really Reagan voters, either.
BTW here’s an idea for campaigning. Candidates and nominees should be compelled to wear NASCAR driver uniforms with the names of donors emblazoned on them proportionally to their donations, INCLUDING SUPPORTING SUPER PACS.

If either Party's candidate doesn't support free trade, that candidate will garner votes from those who would not otherwise have supported that candidate.

Just sayin'.

The empire strikes back.

At this point I would give Rubio odds on favorite to get to the convention in the best position. (Consolidating the establishment delegates then taking the lion's share from Cruz when he's beaten to a pulp and hauled off the canvas).

I like your suggestion re: NASCAR. Sounds like a winner.

If Rubio does become the R nominee the Dems will mop it up in November.

I don't know about you but I'd rather feel the Bern than the cHill.

Bernie all the way on that side

SOMETHING has to change.

Hillary<>Rubio is like being sentenced to a life of watching Mr Roger's Neighborhood with no other sensory input as everything around you slowly rusts and your diet devolves into only HOT POCKETS

Agree, Hillary<>Rubio means four more years of the national sclerosis that began to set in late in Reagan's second term and has ground us to a near halt.

At least a Bernie presidency would get the issue of socialism out of the classroom and into reality. It's proponents will have to defend the results.

It's a hell of a gamble but the US is still in a much better place than Venezuela was when Chavez took over. We still have a chance to overcome.

IMO, an endorsement from Mitt Romney will hurt Rubio.

Oh. Ok. Yeah, I agree with Rubio on that too.

I really like Rubio, but his stance on immigration is a non-starter. More of what we've already been doing. And, he has shown himself to willing to cave on important issues, if the establishment wants him to cave.

He is too malleable.

He has not suffered enough in his life to have grown a strong spine.

He is not ready to be the leader of the Free World.
