According to a search of the Miami-Dade and Duval County court dockets, the Rubio’s have been cited for numerous infractions over the years for incidents that included speeding, driving through red lights and careless driving. A review of records dating back to 1997 shows that the couple had a combined 17 citations.

 For years, Senator Marco Rubio struggled under the weight of student debt, mortgages and an extra loan against the value of his home totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars. But in 2012, financial salvation seemed to have arrived: A publisher paid him $800,000 to write a book about growing up as the son of Cuban immigrants.

In speeches, Mr. Rubio, a Florida Republican, spoke of his prudent plan for using the cash to finally pay off his law school loans.

But at the same time, he splurged on an extravagant purchase: $80,000 for a luxury speedboat, state records show.

Thanks to the tireless reporting of one of our more prestigious newspapers, The New York Times, we have found out that Senator Marco Rubio is not deserving of his aspiration to be a future president of the United States.    It has come to light that Senator Rubio is a dangerous driver because he received 4 traffic citations in over 17 years.    Fortunately for him, he lives in Florida where anything less than 4 citations per year is considered admirable.    Of greater importance was the unearthing that Rubio is an average citizen of our country, one that comes from a poor, hard working family of immigrants, legal not as worthy as the undocumented, that needed financial help to fulfill his aspirations of studying law.    To compound his problems, he fell in love, married (horror!) and had children and bought a home.

Not able to have the acumen to become a millionaire when serving in public office a la Clinton or Harry Reid, he had to live within his meager government salary.    To expand his apparent poor monetary decisions he utilized some of his earnings in college funds for his children and charities.    He obviously ignored the potential of establishing Foundations to pay for personal expenses and travel in private planes and chauffeured limousines.    When receiving $800,000 for a book, he threw 10% away, after paying debts, in a luxury? Boat like the one in the image.    We the people have been alerted by the NYT of the dangers of having one of us, even worse if a minority, aspire to the soon to be vacated throne that has to be occupied by an elite like Queen Hillary.    Little did we know that there is something worse than a rich Republican, a poor one!
