Gail Collins, "Oh, Those Debating Republicans": Taking Aim at Marco Rubio

Gail Collins doesn't give a damn if Hillary lied to the parents of the Benghazi victims, as part of the Obama administration's efforts to pretend that al-Qaeda was "on the run" prior to the 2012 presidential election. And in this regard, I should point out that Hillary is amazing. Have another look at the videos in which she claimed that she came under sniper fire in Bosnia and in which she blamed the video for the Benghazi tragedy. I used to work in "investigations," and I can't find the "tell" in either video, which makes her more than a little frightening.

In her latest New York Times op-ed entitled "Oh, Those Debating Republicans," Collins examines yesterday's Republican presidential debate and fixes Marco Rubio in her crosshairs:

"Republicans who have been terrified by Trump and Carson, and in despair over Jeb Bush, keep pointing hopefully to Marco Rubio. During the debate, Rubio demonstrated great verbal talent when it came to explaining why he seems so bad at things like, say, managing his personal finances. (His parents were humble working folk who did not leave him a fortune.) Also, his stupendous absentee record in the Senate is not all that much worse than some other people who have run for president."

Rubio's poor management of his personal finances? Gail must be referring to that pathetic New York Times story concerning Rubio's purchase of a fishing boat and his repayment of his student loans, which even Jon Stewart ridiculed.

Rubio's "stupendous" absentee record in the Senate? Hey, Gail, how about comparing it with Obama's 129 "present" votes in the Illinois state senate?

If the Republicans decide not to nominate the Donald, i.e. avoid shooting themselves in the foot, and choose Rubio instead, look for more of the same from Collins. Rubio can beat Hillary, and Democratic sycophants such as Collins are already running scared.

    terrific analogy of how to redirect a torpedo into the shooter's hull...

    More people should read Tom Clancy although I doubt Clintons and Bushes ever will. If any of them had read Clancy's 1994 "Debt of Honor", perhaps the idea of 9/11/2001 would NOT have led Condoleeza Rice to say

    " I don't think that anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile" Press conference, May 16, 2002.

    Beats reading the NYT :)
