Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio — widely considered a possible contender for the White House in 2016 — will address “Strong Values for a Strong America” during a speech at Catholic University of America from 1-3 p.m. EST Wednesday. He’ll be followed by a panel discussion of analysts and scholars. Moderated by CUA’s Stephen Schneck, the panel will include Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention; Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America; Richard V. Reeves, a fellow in economic studies at the Brookings Institution; Brad Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project; and Sister Ann Patrick Conrad, associate professor of social work at CUA.

  1. Mark Rubio’s Strong values:
    1. Lying about his background to appeal to Cuban voters. He is Cuban but his parents came here before Castro took power.

    2. Lying about his religious background to appeal to various sects of Christian voters.

    3. Constantly uses his position to enrich his friends and family (an endemic flaw of most Florida Conservatives)

    So lying and stealing from the public are not major concerns but finding religious excuses to discriminate and intruding into personal lives of others are part of a “strong values” platform.

    • Larry, can you please give citations to the above criticisms? I’m very interested in Senator Rubio and his future career in public office and would welcome more details about his background.

      • Here you go

    We can all well imagine what this group of anti-gays will “decide.” Mr. Rubio has been involved with these anti-gay groups before. Hopefully, no taxpayer dollars will be flushed down the toilet by these sad, defeated anti-gays.
