Rubio: U.S. may have to attack Iran

I can think of two reasons why Sen. Marco Rubio, who has been mentioned as Mitt Romney’s possible running mate, is seen as a rising star by the Republican establishment: He’s an unabashed liar and a chicken hawk.

Late last year, Rubio had to correct an item in his Senate bio that stated he “was born in Miami to Cuban-born parents who came to America following Fidel Castro’s takeover.” The bio now reads: “Marco was born in Miami in 1971 to Cuban exiles who first arrived in the United States in 1956.” That was three years before Castro came to power. His family’s decision to leave Cuba had nothing to do with Castro, but he’s still using the word “exiles” rather than “immigrants.”

Yesterday, Rubio warned that the U.S. might have to resort to a unilateral “military solution” to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. This despite the fact that Israel’s top general discouraged the saber rattlers yesterday by stating that Iran has yet to even reach the point where developing nuclear weapons is an option.

No surprise that Rubio, like Dick Cheney and most other prominent Republican neo-cons, never served a day in the military.

  1. The only people still pushing the “we must attack Iran” are the crazy Israelis and their AIPAC flunkies. (Are you listening Steny Hoyer?) That includes the Republicans who want the Jewish vote. Because Obama won’t give Netanyahu’s warmongering Zionists or the Christian Evangelical armageddonists the time of day the Republicans see an opening to get their votes. Color the Republican Party officially dead when they’re counting on those two groups to get them over the top.
