Marco Rubio Is The Presumptive Republican Nominee For President In 2016

I realize that’s a bold statement, but it’s based on solid evidence: the sheer volume of flop sweat flooding the offices of the New York Times.

Last week, the NYT assigned two reporters and a researcher to break the earth-shattering news that Rubio has received four traffic tickets over the last 18 years. Then it turned out the NYT was fed this very important information by American Bridge, an “opposition research” organization run by Democratic hitman and Schedule II expert David Brock.

And now, the NYT’s latest piece of crap stunning investigative journalism:

hackwork

When an old rich white guy runs for president as a Republican, he’s bad because he’s old, white, and rich. When a young, middle-class* Cuban guy runs for president as a Republican, he’s bad because he’s not old, white, and rich.

Republicans are bad. Full stop. Therefore, anything and everything about a particular Republican is bad, even if it contradicts anything and everything you ever hated about some other Republican.

But wait, there’s more! The Washington Free Beacon has become a thorn in the side of the Grey Lady, and the WFB’s David Rutz just gave that thorn another painful twist:

A story in Tuesday’s New York Times probing Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R., Fla) “struggles with finances” during his career quotes a financial expert critical of Rubio who donated money to President Obama.

Harold Evensky, a financial adviser “who reviewed Mr. Rubio’s public financial disclosures” at the newspaper’s request, donated $500 to Obama in 2007 according to online records, but the Times does not note that in its piece.

Of course not.

Our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters are willing to go back on everything they claimed to believe in 2012, because they want to remain in power. Any other considerations are secondary.

Hey, if they had any shame, they would’ve gotten real jobs.

*Okay, okay: relatively middle-class. The Clintons have really, ahem, blown the curve.
