VIDEO: Rubio bragged, "I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in." He's selling that house for $675K.

rubio water I'm you

A very thirsty Marco Rubio said this during his dry-mouthed response to President Obama's State of the Union speech:

"Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in. My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare. They’re workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills. They’re immigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty in countries where the government dominated the economy."

Sorry, Marco, but your extremely sincere efforts to appear extremely sincere (did anyone else catch the pasted-on smile at the very end of his extremely sincere attempt at public speaking?) have failed as miserably as your extremely awkward water bottle lunge.

Rubio is selling his humble neighborhood home and moving to that dreaded liberal cesspool, that Insider's Club of elitists, that so not his home-sweet-'hood (fanfare!)... Washington D.C.

oh noes

Via HuffPo (where there are photos of the working class home he's selling, including the swimming pool):

Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R) is trying to move his family out of state.

As first reported by the Daily Caller, the GOP's brightest star has listed his 2,649-square-foot West Miami home for $675,000 -- money he'll use to relocate his wife and young children to Washington, D.C., if it sells. [...]

If Rubio gets his asking price, he'll make a nice chunk of change on the 4 bedroom, 3-and-a-half bath pool pad: records show he and wife Jeanette bought the place for $550,000 in 2005.

So much for being one of the people.

    Maybe America is beginning to see that this man is just another empty suit. Waving the carrot of the "American Dream" while keeping it firmly under his heel. He lied throughout that speech and maybe that accounts for his extreme case of dry mouth. Examine the way he votes and not what he says. He blocked the Dream Act, VAWA, the Disabilities Treaty, doesn't believe in Climate Change, Evolution, is against raising the minimum wage, against eliminating subsidies (Corporate Welfare). Facebook just earned over 1 Billion Dollars and paid ZERO taxes and got a refund). This man does not represent the American Working Class. He is a  butler for the 1%, another Ayn Randian who believes it is his destiny to succeed at the cost of everyone else as we do not deserve it. He's bought by the Koch Brothers and will not jeopardize his cash for the common man. I write him often and tell you he marches in lock step with the Tea Party.

    In 2005 this "working class" guy bought a 1/2 Million dollar house! Had to be a liars loan deal, no other way possible, if working class meant anything. And if he grew up there that would make him 7-8 years old? How the hell did he get elected? He's not age eligible! Or...if that's the same neighborhood in which he grew up, then that's no working class neighborhood.
    This guy has too many contradictatory stories in his biography.
    Ya know how much a senator makes right? That's how the taxpayers' paid off his school loans..
    Would have been nice if he had watched the SOTU speech before recording the rebuttal.

    I don't know any working class 40 year old who's paid off their $100K student loans.

    For which office will he run from DC? I seem to recall that they don't even have the right to vote.   Is he actually moving to N Virginia?

    "My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare.

    Would that be the same Social Security and Medicare you and your fellow GOPpers are trying to gut, Marco?

    "They’re workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills."

    Would they be the same workers you and your fellow GOPpers don't think deserve either a minimum wage or union protection, Marco?

    "They’re immigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty in countries where the government dominated the economy.”

    Would those be the same immigrants you and your fellow GOPpers constantly demonize as "illegals", Marco?

    Inquiring minds want to know . . .
