Hapless Marco Rubio... every time he seems to be gaining traction, Donald Trump steps on his dick. I'd feel sorry for the guy if he weren't such a regressive asshole. Anyway, Rubio gives the game away in his latest criticism of Trump:
"He could become the nominee and we're not going to let that happen. There is no way we're going to allow the party of Reagan or the conservative movement to be taken over by a con man."
Marco, Marco, Marco, the conservative movement was taken over by con men from day one, with Reagan being the number one grifter of the entire movement. Why, here's the Gipper himself:
By painting the government as the problem, and running the government badly in order to prove that thesis, Reagan ushered in the current period of privatization, allowing a coterie of crooks and cronies to loot the treasury.
Being a redundancy robot, Rubio had to repeat his assertion:
"He's a con man. I think it's time to unmask him for what he is. He's trying to take over the conservative movement."
Marco, you're a con man yourself, dipping into your own party's till. Ted Cruz is also a con man, with a specifically religious spin to his grift. The entire conservative movement is nothing but one massive scam... Rick Perlstein wrote an essential essay on the nature of the grift. Marco Rubio isn't really concerned about a con man taking over the movement, he's just jealous because he's been upstaged by a more charismatic mountebank.
