Senator Rubio (R-Fla.) will give the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union address. He will do so in both English and Spanish.

Not everyone will be so pleased, this Twitter user suspects.
And, so it begins.
GOP is clearly grooming Rubio for 2016. He’s their only shot at siphoning some of the Latino vote in Texas and Florida.

So Rubio is delivering the response to the State of the Union…worked so well when the other token Bobby Jindal did it years ago…

Contemptible. And sadly predictable. Scratch a leftist and you’ll find a racist, every time.
Update: It continues.

They've decided to trot token Rubio out just like that did Steele right after PBO won in 2008. Didn't work then&won't work now. @bashirlive
