Loretta Sanchez To Florida Sen. Marco Rubio: You are an Untrustworthy Poseur

Rubio: Look at the flag, not what I lie about.
Two congressional Democrats including Loretta Sanchez tag teamed Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio on MSNBC this afternoon for his fraudulent attempt to hail himself as a victim of Fidel Castro's dictatorial Cuban regime.

"We don't need someone who makes up his resume," Sanchez told MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews. "From a Latino perspective, we probably don't trust him."

As noted previously on Navel Gazing, the Washington Post recently reported that Rubio, until then arguably a potential frontrunner for the vice presidential slot with the next Republican presidential candidate, has repeatedly embellished his family history for political advantage.

Rubio has claimed that his parents fled the Castro regime when they came to the United States, but a Post reporter discovered official government documents that proved his family left Cuba years before Castro took control.

Oops.

(It's been hilarious watching Republican campaign strategists angrily claim in network TV appearances that Rubio is being smeared.)

Sanchez, Orange County's lone Democrat in Congress, ridiculed Rubio for taking advantage of the immigrant community by using his false persecution credentials to undermine Latino immigrant interests.

"He got caught," she told Matthews.

She also noted that Latinos who live under dictatorships aren't given the same special immigration access to the U.S. that Cubans are granted.

Sanchez is accustomed to hearing shameless liars. Her OC colleague in Congress is notorious fibber Dana Rohrabacher.
Rep. Luis Gutierrez joined Sanchez on the show and slammed Rubio, a freshman senator, for "exploiting" immigrant issues for his own selfish political advancement in the Republican Party.

Sanchez represents the world's largest concentration of Vietnamese immigrants outside of their native country as well as a huge Latino immigrant population based in Santa Ana.

Loretta Brixley....I mean Sanchez questioning the Latino-ness of anyone is classic.

What's funny is this illustrates how completely bogus the "Latino" designation is. Mexicans hate hate hate Cubans, probably worse than they hate yankees. Shit, Mexico regularly deports Cuban refugees back to the tender mercies of the Castro clan.

This is an OUTRAGE.

Laura and I have been positioning ourselves to be California assistant/ Co-members in charge of website articles and social media and propaganda as needed of Rubios California VP organization.

Rubio is the real deal, a completely manufactured canidate, who will do EXACTLY what our handlers say. Since Laura speaks Mexican and hates Fags and I have been discredited by my repeated hypocrisy, this was perfect. Especially, since my deal with Brownie doesn't cover high school tuition for the kids.

STOP SPREADING THIS FALSE CLAIM, Rubio is an American hero, justlike Mike Corona, Robert Ney and Larry Craig before him.

Moxley...

I know what side of the aisle y'alls politics are but on this very website last week we had this out.  The guy who wrote the WAPO hit piece has been discredited as being a hack with an agenda.

Manuel Roig-Franzia is a reporter for the Washington Post who once got punched by his 70 year old editor, Henry Allen, for writing “the second worst story [Allen had] seen in Style in 43 years.” That’s right, Roig-Franzia wrote a horrible piece in the Style section. His 70 year old editor did not like it. Roig-Franzia reportedly called his 70 year old editor and Marine a “c**ksucker”, and the Marine punched him.Manuel Roig-Franzia has a well documented history of being an apologist for the Cuban communist regime and a hater of the Catholic church. He is also now writing a book on Marco Rubio.Rubio has been hounded since he rose to prominence by birthers intent on sabotaging any further rise he might have in politics. Malor notes, “Birthers intent on somehow proving that he’s not a “natural-born citizen” dug up his parents’ adjustment and naturalization paperwork. That’s where WaPo got the dates for his parents’ arrival to the United States.”That’s right boys and girls. Manuel Roig-Franzia, who was once punched by a 70 year old for atrocious writing in a freaking style section, uses a Birther originated attack to discredit Marco Rubio and can’t even offer up a quote from Rubio.And you know what? Even if he could offer up a quote, does it matter? How many of you know the full and accurate story of your parents and grandparents?

And -

The Post was much easier on Barack Obama when a biography by reporter Janny Scott revealed that Obama falsely claimed his mother's insurer tried to deny health care coverage because of a "pre-existing condition."The 1,610-word Rubio story was on the front page, and the headline clearly implies Rubio is guilty of wrongdoing: "Marco Rubio’s compelling family story embellishes facts, documents show." The Post's 486-word report on Obama's mother's health insurance was on page A-06 on July 15, with the headline: "Obama’s mother had health insurance, according to biography."Why is it news that Obama's mom had health insurance? Oh, right: To help win a presidential election and pass his health care overhaul, Obama claimed that his mother's insurer tried to not pay for her cancer treatments by claiming her cancer was a "pre-existing condition." In fact, her insurer covered all medical treatments but denied her coverage for a "disability insurance policy" because that policy was picked up after she was diagnosed with cancer. (But no need to indicate in the headline that Obama fibbed.)The Post paraphrased Obama's inaccurate tale but failed to provide a single quotation from Barack Obama actually saying his mother's insurer tried to deny coverage of her "medical bills." At the top of his July 11 Washington Examiner column, Byron York cited three instances in which Obama specifically claimed his mother's insurer tried to deny coverage of her "medical bills."As York pointed out, the biography revealed that Barack Obama served as his mother's attorney when dealing with her insurer. That detail--which the Post didn't include in its report--shows that Obama clearly knew the story he told was embellished for political gain. There is no indication that Rubio has embellished his parents' story.So which of these stories deserved to be on the front page of the Washington Post?

It's funny how you, like so many of you on the right, regurgitate whatever links Drudge puts up or whatever Rush railed about in the morning.

I cut and pasted this from my post one week ago in regards to the same topic on this very website... I dont like Rush, or Hannity and I hate Hark Levin. I do have Drudge bookmarked you got me there... If I listen to political talk at all its currently Larry Elder but mostly I listen to sports talk, Jim Rome, The loose Cannons, and Petros & Money... As far as regurgitating a story, thusfar two journalist on your staff have done just that over the course of 7 days with the same WAPO article(Which along with the NY times Is where you on the Left get your fodder).

 I admire your willingness to always defend Moxley, but let the man stand on his own two feet for once.  And for Loretta scandalita Sanchita to chime is is indeed the pot calling the kettle black!
