If you can’t beat ‘em in Ohio, join ‘em.

That may be the new mantra for presidential candidate Marco Rubio, who apparently has dismissed any hope of winning that state in Tuesday’s primary.

So now he is urging Republicans there to vote for Gov. John Kasich in order to prevent Donald Trump from winning, according to published reports and comments from his own people.

“If you want to stop Trump in Ohio, Kasich’s the only guy who can beat him there,” Rubio spokesman Alex Conant said Friday in an interview with The Associated Press.

    You missed the point, mlmaston.

  • Michael Lloyd

    Rubio is a petty worm who deserves to be booted out of office after the screw job he has given the good people of Florida. One term is one term too many for this RINO and future lobbyist. This is such a pathetic adolescent – no childish – act of selfishness. Stomp your feet little boy and threaten everybody that if you cannot be the QB then you’ll take your ball and go home. Cry to mommy. She’ll cuddle her little baby, dry your tears, tell you there, there now Marco you don’t need to be afraid of the big bad bullies and give you some ice cream. Wonder what he’s been promised for being such a hick dead.

  • He is the World’s Larget piece

    RUBIO IS A CROOK A LIER, A THIEF , AND A SORE LOSER, THE PAID TROUBLE MAKERS SENT BY HILLARY, CLINTON, RUBIO, KASICH, BUSH BECAUSE THEY CAN NOT BEAT TRUMP FAIR AND SQUARE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE SICK OF THESE SLIMY BASTARDS. TRUMP IS THE NEW WAVE, A BREATH OF FRESH AIR. TRUMP IS A MAN WHO LOVES AMERICA NOT OWNED BY SPECIAL INTEREST. TRUMP IS THE VOICE OF A PEACEFUL REVOLUTION.

  • Colon

    Rubio, you should quit being a bad loser and stop doing damage to others, just to get it your way.

  • Barrustio

    This guy is as bad as Carson…Still bitter about Iowa and willing to foresake his supposed values, even though Cruz has demonstrated that he is the only real conservative…Kasich doesn’t have a prayer

  • Vangie Martinez

    Whaaaa Whaaaa Whaaaa. Marco be a good sport and learn from this experience.

  • M.E. Thompson

    Marco Rubio is to immature to be POTUS!

  • kathy diamond

    What kind of voting system do we really have? I never saw anything like this. Is this what the candidates meant when they took their pledges? Do we really want more people like this in our Government?? Do We? The only way to keep them out is Vote For Trump. He’s not part of this. They are so afraid that if he wins, Washington will REALLY BE CLEANED UP then it will belong to We The People. They have stolen from us long enough, this is why we are in debt, pay higher prices for everything, don’t get interest at our bank, don’t have enough money for even esentials. This must stop, America Won’t Survive. Let’s get a man in there who will be there to protect The American People. Go Trump

  • Rubio continues to display his immaturity and lack of readiness to hold elective office. He needs to get out of politics and season himself in the private sector.

  • Seedman

    Don’s cancellation seems to be contrary to other campaign stops where violence and vulgarity was encouraged. Heil Don Juvenile.

  • cathylovesyou

    Rubio is Stupid. When people think of him after the campaign that’s what will come to mind. He is not ready for prime time nor will he ever be just like Obama was never ready (especially because he is the enemy). Rubio does not have common sense, he makes poor choices and is lead and relies on being lead. Do we want him to be a follower in Chief. Like the Blamer in the White House.

  • Sherri Hart Schell

    THIS IS AND WHAT HAPPENED FRI IS WHAT THE GOP HAS BECOME!!! DO YOU REALLY WANT OUR COUNTRY RUN BY PEOPLE LIKE THIS!?! Ted Cruz said earlier in the week WE ARE STUPID!! That we don’t know how things are done in politics-in other words he’s patting us on the head and telling us now now it’s ok “we the POLITICANS know just what to do. You just let us tell you who to vote for and we’ll take care of everything else.” I DONT KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT IT SEEMS TO ME THAT WE HAVE BEEN SCREWED LONG AND HARD!!! THIS COUNTRY WONT SURVIVE ANOTHER 2 yrs of THEIR KIND OF LEADERSHIP. And it MAY ALRDY BE TOO LATE!! But our ONLY HOPE IS NOT ANOTHER POLITICIAN!!!! It’s the ONE PERSON THEY ARE TRYING THEIR DAMDEST TO TAKE OUT OF THE RACE-ANY WAY THEY CAN-regardless of WHO GETS HURT OR WORSE!!!! With the crowd they incited to “PROTEST” Trumps rally yesterday. What will they do next time? Cruz BLAMED TRUMP!!! And HE KNEW EXACTLY WHO SET THE WHOLE THING UP!!! WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SOMEONE GETS KILLED OVER THEM TRYING TO KEEP THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FROM VOTING FOR OUR CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT?!?!?!? REGARDLESS OF WHO YOU WANT FOR PRESIDENT DO YOU HONESTLY WANT THAT DECISION DECIDED BY PEOPLE THAT THINK YOU ARE TOO STUPID TO KNOW? HOW MANY MORE RIGHTS DO YOU WANT TO LOSE? HOW MANY MORE TERRORISTS DO YOU WANT THEM TO BRING IN THIS COUNTRY? HOW MUCH MORE DO WE AS CHRISTIANS HAVE TO GIVE UP TO THESE HEATHENS? VOTE WHO YOU WANT AS PRESIDENT-BUT DONT LET SOMEONE DECIDE FOR YOU!!! Me and mine are voting for DONALD TRUMP!!! THE MAN NOT THE PARTY!!!!! HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO OWES NOTHING TO ANYONE!! HE SAYS WHAT HE MEANS AND MEANS WHAT HE SAYS!!! HE LOVES THIS COUNTRY AND WANTS TO MAKE IT GREAT AGAIN-JOIN US TO HELP HIM BRING OUR COUNTRY BACK TO THE PEOPLE AND RIGHT THE WRONGS obama HAS DONE TO THIS NATION!!! VOTE TRUMP!!!!

  • how small they are, rubio, basich, cruz……they are all trying to take our vote away with manipulation……they are just showing us that we should vote for trump. corruption and racism is has filled this country thanks to obama and people like them.

  • Suzey

    Are you Trumpsters paying attention? The riot in Chicago proves how polarizing Donald Trump is. Just like Obama! if Trump looks like the nominee, there will probably be riots in Cleveland as there were in Chicago in 1968.
    That cost Hubert Humphrey and the Democrats the election. Better wake up now. Trump will lose the election for us.

    • mlmaston

      The riots in Chicago were going on long before Trump started running for office.

  • robert

    the republican establishment is pushing negative ads against trump they think republicans are dumb and we don’t know whats going on they will learn when we vote against every establishment candidate that went against trump

  • ppeony

    What a creep and sore loser. He HAD A FUTURE ONCE. BACKSTABBER, TRAITOR.SAD.

  • Matt

    EVERYTHING Rubio’s done in the past few weeks has made me stand in front of a mirror at home and take a pledge to NEVER VOTE FOR RUBIO. NEVER. (I guess it doesn’t matter because no one else wants him either except for Puerto Rico). Is Rubio gay? I’ve read a lot of stories on the internet backed up with pictures and a late night arrest in a park. I wonder???

  • Ken says

    The Establishment is so desperate they are sacrificing their own to keep the outsider non-politician candidate from getting the nomination. Come Convention time the RINOs will try to be wizzards and save their sorry A$$ in a final attempt to run one of their approved candidates as GOP nominee.

  • Albert L Biele

    I can understand Rubio’s move to quit the race, but to assume a vindictive posture against Trump, is immature, and will play havoc on the future of his political career. What Rubio fails to realize is that, mathematically, the majority of Republican voters are with Trump, so when he pushes his supporter toward Cruz; the next time he runs for office, he will struggle to get that same 40% or republicans to vote for him. Rubio has bad advisers!!!!

  • Shane Ripley

    Rubio is pushing anti Cruz campains, he wants a brokered convention. Rinos hate Cruze & Donald most of all they hate you! If Rubio does not join Cruz Hillery wins, Polls show Rubio can’t win by votes , And Donalds Negitives amount to another Romney, another Rino loser.

    • Jean

      It really shows how establishment he is.

  • CharlieSeattle

    Unlike Kasich, Rubio, Hillary or Bernie, Trump is ACTUALLY defending low wage jobs FOR black Americans FROM illegal aliens.

    Obama and the Democratic Party DEPEND on stupid people to stay in power. However, as black unemployment stays bad, will they ever start to wise up?

    Stage left, enter 11-34 million illegal aliens, that can’t read or speak English, to be granted citizenship, vote democratic and take low wage jobs from black American’s.

    ……………..And ‘da blacks?… ‘dey will love him for it!

    • Matt

      Q: Count how many black people you know.
      Q: Count how many of them you really regard as SMART.
      A: (the answer IS there – you just can’t see it).

  • freedomoutpost ken

    As I am doing to Rubio in Florida. I will vote for Trump instead of Cruz, who I prefer, to stop Rubio from getting his brokered convention.

    • Jean

      How would voting for Trump instead of Cruz keep Rubio from getting a brokered convention? Aren’t you still taking a vote away from Rubio, no matter which one you vote for. Be honest with your vote. Aren’t we angry with the establishment for playing these kinds of politics. Are we going to be just like them.

      • Cynthia McKinstry

        Jean, I think what freedomoutpost is doing is ensuring Rubio doesn’t have a chance at winning FL and voting for Trump because Trump is polling so much better than Cruz. I like Cruz, as well, but unfortunately it doesn’t look like he’d win FL since it’s winner take all delegates. So voting for Cruz wouldn’t help Trump to win and Rubio gets a better shot because it’s basically a lost vote on Cruz. Did you notice all the cheers for Rubio at the last debate? So staged by the establishment!

        • Jean

          This is all so convoluted. Voters are being confinced to look at different math formulas, so called polls and too many guesses. When are we going to vote by looking at their platforms, their character and vote conscience. I’m beginning to see how the men we send to Washington turn on us. They are being persuaded to follow this game. There doing to us the voter also.

      • freedomoutpost ken

        Taking a vote away from Rubio and giving it to Trump is like giving two votes to Trump in Florida. The goal is to stop the establishment from getting their brokered convention.

  • mlmaston

    None of those three can beat Trump…so why vote for loser #3, when losers #1 & #2 couldn’t close the deal??

    • Jean

      That is giving up freedom. You call them losers but EVERYONE needs to be encouraged to vote based on their inner values. This is the primary, when people really are free to say what their values are. The November elections is when you may have to go with your 2nd, 3rd choice. I will not be bullied into being called a loser. I Will pursue my values, (which will not cheat others) my own piece of the American pie. I will not let big time establishment, business men keep me from having my own businesses. I’m an American.

      • mlmaston

        I’m not calling You a loser…I’m calling the presidential wannabes with no answers losers. You should read the comment a bit more carefully.

        • Jean

          Fine, but I’m not going to vote on popularity. I’m not going to play politics in voting. I will vote my conscience, especially during the primary when I really have a choice.

          • mlmaston

            I’m voting for the person who I think will work best in preserving this country’s interests….not a political party or special interest politicians.

          • SABER

            I hope you are not voting for this one…

      • SABER

        My inner values begin with voting for a candidate that is Constitutionally eligible. And once they meet this criteria, I will listen and decide. Ineligible Rubio is finished when he loses Florida. Ineligible Lyin’ Ted Cruz will not stop at anything to steal votes. He is desperate.

  • scottymoore

    It is pretty sad when grown men act like school children running for class president and the everyone losing to the leader, that they don’t like, gangs up on him and even become like him, just to keep him from winning. Then the kids gather with the school teachers/leaders of the election and tell them it’s not fair if Donny wins because he’s a bully….. and they try and change the rules, so that they can legally steal it from him.
    I hope we can just let the people vote for, or decide, who they think is best, and the one’s who are losing, and even have some good ideas, would support the winner and maybe even try and shape some of little Donnie’s ideas…..
    Poor little Marco. Probably not a bad little guy, just desperate and doing stupid little things.

    • Pam

      I’ve always said the ANCHOR BABY shows a lot of signs of immaturity and deep insecurities. These days, every time he opens his mouth he just embarrasses himself more.
      Please little Marco, take your bottle (of water) and go home!

    • Anthony

      well lets just call him the little guy, I can see that he learned well by his parents, stump over anyone to get ahead, that little poor excuse for a man sucks as a Senator and I am afraid he would even be a worst President then Obama because many of his promises are about the same.

      • kathy diamond

        Anthony, I TOTALLY AGREE None of the other (3) can be trusted. GO TRUMP, AMERICA NEEDS YOU !!!

    • Chris Robinette

      You noticed. Such poor losers.

      • kathy diamond

        Yes, and Ted is running capitalizing on it all. He is such a Politician. Everytime he opens his mouth he lies or tells a half truth which is the same. I can’t stand it

        • SABER

          This is why I say….Ted Cruz….

    • gene613

      Unfortunately Rubio and Katschik are trying to force a convention where Mitch McConnell Jeb Bush and other losers get to override the choice of the majority voting in the numerous Rep primaries.Get ready for the revolution.

    • SABER

      Little Marco’s campaign is finished.

  • Jeanette Eaton

    In the long run, this won’t work. I just cannot figure out how a man who wants to be President so much, like he has said, can self-implode so decisively like this. He knows he’s finished but he’s trying to take advantage of what little gasps of air he has left and he is pounding the nails in his own coffin. But, he has been doing that long before he got into this race. If I were a voting Floridian, I would not vote for a man to be my President who cannot even be a responsible representative of my state as a U.S. Senator and not show up to work regularly. To be the President is a 24 hour 365 days a year job. There is no “time off”. There is no real time to yourself or your family because , no matter where you are or what you are doing you are responsible for every American citizen, and, to be honest, everyone on the planet, because we can’t be isolated and decide that what we do doesn’t influence anyone else…it doesn’t work that way. I don’t know how long he has been senator for the State of Florida, but after only one term, it would become apparent to me, that he didn’t deserve another term as senator and he certainly doesn’t deserve a term as the President of the United States of America. I am backing Trump, but if I were a resident of Florida, it wouldn’t matter who I voted for , as long as it wasn’t Rubio because he has not shown that he is deserving of that vote. In “due time” he will have more “days off” than he ever bargained for.

    • mlmaston

      We have living proof of this in the Oval Office right now. The “people” (I suspect some other entity) put one incompetent in office….did it again in 2012….and now, they’re trying to “talk” us into doing this again, in 2016.

      • Reasoned thinker

        Scottymoore, Pam, Gene613, Chris Robinette, Kathy Diamond, Anthony, Jeanette Eaton (all above) . . . You guys are all simply fantastic! Your points are s-o-o-o-o-o “on-target” too ….. Why is it that EVERYONE can’t see all this stuff for exactly what it is? Is it really all about the influence of the money “supporting” the (other) Republican candidates, or is it just about some of these candidates (other than Trump), who simply do not understand what the heck is going on in our country? Then, to top things off, this “Rubio-worm” tries the sophomoric stunt of trying to orchestrate Trump’s defeat in Ohio, by encouraging primary voters to vote for someone OTHER than himself (i.e., Rubio)!!! Oh, Rubio is such a great guy, eh? Amazing!!!!!!!

        Then today . . . we all see the shameful “splash” from last night’s fracas (i.e., Friday) in Chicago — I’m glad Trump has shifted that focus to Sanders’ and Clinton’s supporters. Good move by Trump!

        It scares me to even think about someone OTHER THAN Trump getting in (as President). All the other three, in my opinion, will “cave” when the going gets tough.

        Trump says it like it is. Go Trump.

        • dfinch

          Trump didn’t change to Sanders. Tonight again he went off on “Little Marco” and “Lyin Ted” that he said he wasn’t going to do at the debate. The mans a liar. Trump can’t do what he says he’s going to do. He’s ticked off both political parties to the point that if he gets the nomination and is elected he’ll be lucky to be allowed to give out suckers to little children when they come to the Whitehouse. Neither side will work with him.

          • Michael Lloyd

            Reminder: this is back to real life now not a debate. He kept to what he said. Rubio signed a pledge to support the candidate and is now backing off on that – that’s a lie and he signed his X to the pledge. BTW: Cruz is a liar.

          • dfinch

            Rubio said on the phone yesterday that he’d still back Trump but he has to stop his decisive rhetoric.

    • freedomoutpost ken

      Maybe we should remind (o)bama it is 24/365, he surely doesn’t understand that. My vote in Florida will be for Trump, a vote against Rubio, but I prefer Cruz.

      • Jean

        Then why don’t you vote for Cruz? This is the primaries, your chance to vote for who you really like. Your chance to vote without playing politics yourself. Sure, come November, you may have to vote your 2nd or 3rd choice.

        • mlmaston

          Cruz is already out….it would be a wasted vote.

          • Barrustio

            A good vote is never wasted…especially in view of the backlash that Trump is about to experience this is just the beginning…it can only get worse.

          • mlmaston

            Trump has received several backlashes already….it’s like pouring gasoline on a bonfire….with Trump being the bonfire. The more the opposition turns it on, the more they get burned.

          • dfinch

            Huh??

          • mlmaston

            Almost out….he’s hurting for the lack of funding….so his campaign won’t last much longer. Like I said–D.O.A.

        • freedomoutpost ken

          My number one goal is not to get another RINO which would guarantee a loss to the liberals.

      • I Seigel

        What makes you think Obama “surely doesn’t understand that”? He’s had 7 years of experience already.

        • freedomoutpost ken

          Seven years of playing golf, campaigning, vacationing on tax payer’s dollars, flying around the World apologizing for the USA and most of all getting paid with taxpayer dollars to destroy the USA..

          • I Seigel

            I’m sure there have been a few days where he’s been in meetings, met with world leaders at conferences, gotten Bin Laden, and signed a bill or two. Surely it hasn’t ALL been golf and vacations.

          • Michael Lloyd

            Gotten Bin Laden must have been some feat of super proportions since he wasn’t on Seal Team 6 and was playing cards in DC with his Reggie love.

          • I Seigel

            I believe he was involved.

          • mlmaston

            A few is nowhere near enough. If I had his (Obama’s) work record, not only would I be out of a job….I would find it nearly impossible to find another one.

          • I Seigel

            I don’t think Obama will have that problem

  • Deanna Sharp

    If you can’t even see where that is coming from backbiters and a cowards and quitters than I feel sorry for you.They met at jed Bush house with the bushes and all the other consituents and left Trump out because they are Cowards and fight behind close doors from jealousy in a cowards way sending people in to Trump meeting to disrupt they can’t just fight fairly by encouraging people who to vote for and why to vote their way do you want a president who is gutless and sneaky then shame on you. Think what I am telling ask your self will they ever be up front and lead with strength or be like Obama and sneak around and try to let other country,s bring in their terriney

    • freedomoutpost ken

      Every thing they do just adds more voters for Trump. Trump is playing them like a fiddle.

      • Michael Lloyd

        And just like a younger Marco, they are all just playing in the bubbles.

  • podunk1

    The little RINO roars “MOTSOS” (more of the same old stuff!

  • Dick

    That wasn’t such a good move Rubby. Why don’t you just drop out know. Don’t waste all that money on nothing. Use it to pay your bills……

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      pay his bills??? he doesn’t know how.

    • freedomoutpost ken

      Rubio is burying his political future.

      • Matt

        He ended that a couple weeks ago when he decided to be a fool.

      • Jean

        He and the establishment are trying to keep Cruz from getting more delegates too.

    • Matt

      He could take a gay-cation. (I think he is).

  • Gunflint Roseberg

    Rubio & Hitlery should be run back to Mexico in the same rail car.

    • freedomoutpost ken

      I prefer Hillary be shipped to the nearest Federal prison.

      • Matt

        Hillary – MOTHER OF ISIS – Obama’s the baby daddy.

        • I Seigel

          And W is the GRANDDADDY OF ISIS. CHENEY is the UNCLE DADDY.

      • Gunflint Roseberg

        I will go for anywhere for Hitlery…Gitmo, prison, expelled from the USA

        • Michael Lloyd

          Yes, expelled like the bag of gas she is.
