Rush Limbaugh Calls Rubio “a Full-Throated Conservative”

I guess the RINO label  can be unattached now from Marco Rubio. From Jesse Hill in TheHill:

“Marco Rubio is no moderate, Republican centrist,” Limbaugh said. “I don’t see Marco Rubio as anything other than a legitimate, full-throated conservative.”

“Nobody’s pure, and nobody is ever free of making mistakes,” the hard-right host added.

Limbaugh, who has spoken warmly of Cruz and Trump, also said Tuesday he didn’t think Cruz or Rubio were “gloating” after their showing in Iowa compared to Trump, saying instead it was “the establishment types.”

“Marco Rubio I really like. I like Ted Cruz. There are any number of people in this campaign, two or three people, if they win, I’d be happy,” Limbaugh continued on his program.

Conservative talk radio hasn’t always been kind to Rubio, his Gang of Eight participation on an Immigration Bill serving as a deal-breaker. Does Limbaugh’s subtle “nobody’s pure” begin healing the rift between an establishment candidate like Rubio and an angry base?


About Bob Sikes

A long time ago and a planet far, far away I was an athletic trainer for the New York Mets. I was blessed to be part of the now legendary 1986 World Series Championship. My late father told me that I'd one day be thankful I had that degree in teaching from Florida State University. He was right and I became twice blesses to become a teacher in the late 1990's. After dabbling with writing about the Mets and then politics, I settled on education.
