    Amazing coming from a politician opposed to President Trump from the start. Appears he might be changing or has changed his mind.

    We’re not delivering. We’re not getting the job done and people are frustrated. I’m frustrated. I promise you; as frustrated as you are, I’m banging my head into it every day. You have good reason to be cynical, and a lot of people across the country are ticked off.

    We’ve got an incredible opportunity - an opportunity that doesn’t happen very often. Unified control of government for Republicans historically has been quite rare. And it’s been the Senate that hasn’t been able to deliver.

    You look at the votes over ObamaCare? Those were maddening.”

    The problem is the things the GOP wants to do hurts the country. For the last few decades.

    Cruz , eh..his ego kept him from manning up like Rubio did.

    I reckon he's not a bad feller but.. He failed to man up. I ..take issue with that.

    Well, points for admitting the obvious.

    Sooo, what's his plan for doing something about it?

    The GOP cannot get the votes to hurt the country.

    But . . . I am not sure it can get the votes on good issues.

    If Cruz had his way we'd be a third world country and wouldn't have a public sector at all. Truly a hell hole.

    What did Rubio do to earn your respect? He's at the top of my shit-list due to his insane comments on Charlottesville.

    Link?

    He manned up and supported Trump for the GOP nomination.

    I've been pretty happy with him since that "gang of 8" amnesty thing that was retarded. I think he felt some serious backlash from close to home on that one.

    I understand that the Charlottesville protests caused people some angst but regardless of what you think of the alt-right, having unpopular ideas does not justify violence like Rubio thinks.
