Drill, Baby, Drill! (Says Rubio)

Another issue where Rubio parts from his predecessor.

Then juuuuuuuuuust maybe in the near future you, my Florida chums, will get a taste of Cajun-style fishing and diving.

"If bona-fide science has crowned Global Warmists with ten foot dunce caps, then half a century of scientific evidence has crowned anti-offshore drilling activists with fifty foot dunce caps."

Entire environmental intransigence and blockheadedness here.

(scroll down to where it says here's a video peek at this seafood bonanza--and if your mouth don't water at all those PARGO(!!!)--then you ain't Cuban, heck you ain't human!)

  • Mr. Mojito

    I agree with his stance, however I am not sure it is smart politics at this time.

    Rubio is coasting to a win right now, don't give 'spray tan' any openings - and many Floridians who live near the beach have an aversion to off shore drilling.

  • But there are more of us who don't like paying $3 or more for a gallon of gasoline...

    Every drill rig which produces oil without spilling a drop is one more nail in the coffin of the stupid, childish, whining, false, fear-riddles self-serving nonsensical arguments of these green communists who seek to starve us to death in the dark so that they can live fat and large.

    Their arguments were sickening forty years ago. Today? Moreso.

  • Mr. Mojito, with all due respect, IMO right before the election is exactly the WRONG time for Marco to start acting like a typical RHINO and back peddle on the issues in order to appear more "centrist." That cowardly tactic is why Obama is POTUS.

  • Mr. Mojito

    Ziva, in theory I agree with you, however some positions are understood and don't need to be said when you're ahead. Rubio already has the votes of all the "drill now" crowd - so what is gained by calling attention to this. There is a balancing act to play and Rubio is coasting to a win right now, its like passing the ball up 14 with 1 min left when you can run the clock out.

  • Mr. Mojito

    George I agree - but were all already voting for Rubio. Why let "spray tan" now scare the centrist old people that an oil rig will block their ocean view?

  • Mr. Mojito, I see your point and agree somewhat. But, I guess it's just against my nature to be cautious or passive; I think that affirming his conservative position on issues rather than coasting is bold and correct and just what the people have been looking for. We'll see.
