That is from Ana Navarro, a Republican fundraiser and Rubio friend in Miami. (From article below)

Yes, Ms. Navarro. We picked up on that a few years back.



As Marco Rubio dismisses VP chatter, he looks to be preparing for job

By Adam C. Smith and Alex Leary, Times Staff Writers
Mar 25, 2012 09:00 AM


For a guy who keeps insisting he has no interest in being vice president, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio appears to be feverishly positioning himself for the job.

.....

Rubio's moves sometimes seem to be taken, literally, from the influential opinion page of the Wall Street Journal.

Columnist Paul Gigot last month wrote that Rubio would be wise to move up publication of his book to June, which Rubio then did. Gigot wrote that Rubio needed to expose any skeletons lest he become the next Palin or Dan Quayle, vice presidential candidates whose past were a rich well of material for opponents. Three days later, Rubio asked the Florida Ethics Commission to close out a complaint filed during the 2010 Senate race.

.....



And Rubio also takes his cues from Grover Norquist.


After influential anti-tax activist Grover Norquist criticized the Restore Act dedicating 80 percent of BP oil spill fees to the Gulf Coast, Rubio became the only Gulf state senator to vote against the bill.

.....




Says Rubio:

.....

"The main thing is you don't ever want to say something that's not true, or be in accurate because the way words today are parsed in politics. Everything you say is going to be analyzed very carefully so you want to make sure everything you say and do is 100 percent accurate."

.....

Legislatively, Rubio has little to show after 13 months in office. Asked what he has accomplished, Rubio noted he is in the minority party in the Senate and said he has helped the GOP define its message against Obama's policies.



"Define the GOP's message", indeed.



To all national media, some of whom we hope are awake and digging out the truth about Marco Rubio, and making final preparations to deliver this shipload of information to the public:


If this man slides into the Republican VP slot, and if you fail to vet this man's background vigorously and exhaustively, there are only two words left to say.


Sarah Palin.



It's springtime.


Time to pick a few bushels of low-hanging 'Ruby-oh Red' fruit.



It started to stink years ago.
