Rubio discovers perils of McAssociation


It was a lesson most of us learned in our youth: Choose your friends carefully; you’ll be judged by the company you keep.

The Hill reports that the ambitious Marco Rubio has discovered — perhaps too late — that his association with John McCain carries a high price.

Watching helplessly as his 2016 presidential aspirations evaporate, Rubio who initially played a key role as McCain’s Gang of Eight amnesty pusher, is now lying low, after plummeting from first to sixth place among potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates. Though working to convince Republican senators to vote for the contentious amnesty bill, he no longer wants to take part in putting pressure on House members after receiving a stinging rebuke from conservatives.
