Rubio not qualified

So the Miami Herald embraces Marco Rubio as the best qualified among the Republican contenders. If Attila the Hun were alive, he, too, would embrace Rubio in similar fashion.

Put aside the man’s affable, glib speaking style, look at his record as Speaker of Florida's Legislature and as U.S. senator; extremist and reactionary to the core. He voted against such broad based initiatives as denying firearms and explosives to dangerous terrorists, fixing America's surface transportation, the highway and transportation funding act, bring jobs home act, protecting access to Medicare act, and the student loan affordability act.

The list of woeful vetoes inimical to the betterment of Florida and the U.S. goes on ad infinitum. Sen. Rubio is definitely not qualified to lead this country — period!
