South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s decision to appoint Congressman Tim Scott to the U.S. Senate is being welcomed by one of the Senate’s rising stars and potential 2016 Republican Presidential candidate, Florida Senator Marco Rubio. Rubio is considered one of outgoing Senator Jim DeMint’s protege, and many within the Republican grassroots believe that Rubio, DeMint and Scott are all cut from the same conservative cloth.

    And the snotty Luke Russert tweets that with Allen West’s loss and Scott’s move to the Senate, there are no black Republicans in the House.

    Hey Luke…don’t you mean there are no more black Republicans to be blackballed from the Congressional Black Caucus?

    So, a conservative Latino senator is praising a conservative Black senator.

    Or as the brain-dead knuckle-dragging libtards would say — the Republican coconut likes the Republican Oreo.

    But they’re not racist!

    Tim Scott quotes
    #1: “…love had to come at the end of a switch, and [mom] loved me a lot.”

    #2: “When you fail Spanish and English, they don’t call you bilingual, they call you bi-ignorant.”

    #3: {my} mentor, a guy named John Monise, a Chick-Fil-A operator…”

    I’ve known for a while that Tim Scott was a bootstraps guy; now the nation knows it. Let’s hope he has better luck in SC than Allen West did in Florida coping with RINOs in the state legislature.

    I’m going to have to do more reading on what Rubio is doing, I’ve kind of taken a break from the nitty gritty details since the depressing outcome of the election. I’m worried about Rubio’s apparent distancing himself from them what brung him — the tea party. Last I heard, like Peter of old, he was denying his success was due in large part by tea party support and was even bordering on disparaging the tea party, ala Speaker Boehner. I guess I’m with the staunch conservative who believe we need to make a real conservative stand and not capitulate in any way, shape or form to the call for “compromise” with the D’s.

    I may live in Indiana, but I’m proud to have this fine man in our Senate.

    I look for good things to happen here. He may be President someday.

    In fact, I say in 4 years we nominate this guy to run against Hillary. Put Rubio in as VP and liberal heads will explode.

    One of the problems conservatives historically have is our inability to think like a progtard. Our first mistake is that we believe they actually care about blacks. They don’t. And that is why they can call a conservative black an “oreo” and make other overt racist remarks. They fake caring about blacks during elections and then only to make them believe they care and that conservatives *only* care about oppressing them because of their skin color. The Left has nothing but contempt for blacks and only because of their skin color.
