Marco Rubio finally changes tactics, attacks Donald Trump through the media

by Kelly Riddell  |  published on February 26, 2016

Marco Rubio — in a campaign first — blasted out an email to reporters of a disparaging news article on businessman Donald Trump, an action that may be indicative that the Florida senator is ready to take on the Republican front-runner in Thursday’s debate and change his campaign’s narrative.

Mr. Rubio’s team sent news reporters a New York Times report on Thursday that describes how Mr. Trump has tapped foreign workers to staff his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida and tagged the post as “FYI…”

Mr. Rubio has thus far refused to directly hit Mr. Trump, although he has engaged in man-to-man combat with Texas Sen Ted Cruz. Mr. Rubio’s team sends several suggestive articles on Mr. Cruz, most recently one of him pulling out of an event in Alabama, how Mr. Cruz spent big in Nevada but still came in third place, and of the Cruz campaign’s “dirty tricks.”

Many political strategists have become critical of Mr. Rubio’s decision not to hit Mr. Trump directly, some saying he’s aiming to become Mr. Trump’s vice president and questioning his ability to win the Republican nomination.

In a sharp shift on Wednesday evening, Mr. Rubio drew some battle lines with Mr. Trump saying Mr. Trump believes in some parts of Obamacare and has refused to come to Israel’s defense.

    Rubio and Cruz passed a Government Budget this year ,they voted for it . Inside the Budget ,they funded Planned Parenthood too ! Because Obama said if you didn’t fund them he would veto it !

    Rubios big accomplishment is not showing up for work and a majority of Senate votes. Cruz’s big accomplishment is being the most hated man in the Senate.

    Rubio is all just a big bag of hot air. He will selling pencils after his time in government is done. Probably sooner than he thinks after his display last night. Trump 2016!!

    Rubio behaved as a little kid having a tantrum in the debate last night. It did nothing to boost his character or prove him to be more than the rotten kid he is.. Hitlary will chew him up and spit him out. Plus you cannot depend on him even showing up to do his job. He stole from the State of Florida, more ways than one; underhanded; using the States Credit card for his own personal use/no showing up for work to represent his Floriida State as he promised and vowed to do, plus on and on. Rubio is a traider and a crook.

    Rubio and Cruz are two JERKS.

    I saw the debate last night and had to wonder what Rubio & Cruz accomplished? I saw entertainment and one cut Trump on this & the other cut him on that. Isn’t that wonderful. Two first termers who don’t know squat about management. What did each manage and how successful were they? Last night was great entertainment but nothing more. Here is the biggie. Has either of the hotshots failed and bounced back? It called building character building.
    Ever have a failure? When good times return you have a different perspective.
