Hey, remember when Marco Rubio voted against relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy?
And remember when New York Republican Rep. Peter King loudly chastised his fellow Republicans on their "no" votes, but then quickly forgot when they finally made a deal?
And remember when Rubio voted "no" on that one too?
Well, turns out that Peter King actually does still remember, and thanks to Marco Rubio's ego, greed, lust for power, and Presidential pipe dreams, King was reminded of it all over again today.
“Being from New York we’re not supposed to be suckers,” Mr. King told Politicker this morning. “It’s bad enough that these guys voted against it, that’s inexcusable enough. But to have the balls to come in and say, ‘We screwed you now make us president?’”
Mr. King went on to urge Empire State donors to cut off Mr. Rubio and any other member of Congress who “threw a knife in the back in New York” by voting “no” on the bill.
“Rubio and these other Republican candidates are coming to New York to raise money,” he said. “I don’t think any senator or congressman who voted against aid for Sandy should get one nickel from New York.”
Yeah, that Marco. What he lacks in brains, he makes up for in, shall we say......"bolas?" He could just be too stupid to realize how such a thing might look. Or he just doesn't care. His smarts, or the lack thereof have been a topic of debate for years.
Either way, King needn't worry too much about that knife in his back. There's a lot of time between now and 2016, and Rubio will have plenty of others to use it on before he's finished.
