How about the truth? Rubio is a player in the GOP, that attempts to block everyone of Obama’s choices to the bench. Add the fact that the guy is black and gay just gives him more reason. Elders was trying to be a responsible public health teacher. She basically said no one had ever gotten pregnant or HIV from mutual j/o and the GOP went nuts. Her advice was very responsible specially for gay teens. She also supported condoms and only having one sex partner. The all the same advice I give my gay nephew.
“Why is Marco Rubio Blocking The First Black Gay Male Federal Judge?”
Did ya miss the ‘Gay’ and ‘Black’ in that question? As if anyone in the GOP needs another reason? Rubio may be Latino, but he’s clearly proven he’s an Uncle Tom, and doesn’t give a shit about any minorities, including his own.
@CaptainFabulous: There is a massive element of using Rubio in a hilarious game of “LOOK HOW NOT R@CIST WE ARE, THIS GUY IS OFF WHITE AND WE HAVE HIM”.
Yeah, but where’s the evidence or indication that the delay is motivated by race or sexuality? Methinks this may just be more perceived injustice from the professional victims.
Too late for Rubio. He is garbage to the conservative base.
Marco the token latino of the GOP. The fact that Marco thinks he will be fully accepted by the rabid bigots that is the GOP base is laughable. The fact that the GOP thinks Marco will attract the latino vote even more laughable.
“Professional victims”: ra•cist much?
It’s clear why Rubio is doing this. The judge was also correct about Dr. Joycelyn Elders, whose comments about masturbation drove the right-wing into a state of hysteria, although they were hardly controversial, and even the nuttiest ultraconservative masturbates, whether she or he lies about doing so.
Rubio’s games are tiresome, but then so is the contemporary professional victim GOP.
Same reason the House GOP’s held up all the other nominations President Obama’s made, refuse to fund desperately needed repairs to America’s infrastructure, have made games of Debt Ceiling Chicken an annual thing, and voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act THIRTY-NINE BILGE-GARGLING TIMES, WHAT THE FUCK: they hate the President, they hate the idea of a functional government, and are willing to run the US into the ground rather than compromise on anything.
Rubio should go to Cuba where he belongs. He is not any sort of American.
Again: Where’s the evidence? It’s all conjecture and cherry-picking politics.
