Marco Rubio at the RedState Gathering

“That cap and trade legislation, which will do nothing but make America one of the cleanest third world economies . . .,” said Marco Rubio at the RedState Gathering.

He is a phenomenal speaker.

One of the valuable points Marco Rubio made at the RedState Gathering was that the Republican Party is the natural home of conservatives, but it is not the inevitable home of conservatives. If the GOP does not clean up its act and turn back from the path it has been on, conservatives will leave.

People like Marco Rubio can keep the party together, expand the base, and keep conservatives engaged.

My favorite line: “People ask me about expanding outreach to hispanics. The first thing they can do is stop hiring mariachi bands for hispanic outreach events.”
