Who Was The Biggest Liar In The CNBC Republican Debate?



The above rant-- about Marco Rubio lying his ass off-- by conservative former Congressman Joe Scarborough (R-FL) is the sort of treatment normally reserved for Hillary Clinton. But, yes, Rubio flat-out lied in front of 14 million people during the Boulder debate. What Scarborough was referring to was this exchange between moderator Becky Quick and young Marco:

QUICK: Senator Rubio, you yourself have said that you've had issues. You have a lack of bookkeeping skills. You accidentally inter-mingled campaign money with your personal money. You faced foreclosure on a second home that you bought. And just last year, you liquidated a $68,000 retirement fund. That's something that cost you thousands of dollars in taxes and penalties.

In terms of all of that, it raises the question whether you have the maturity and wisdom to lead this $17 trillion economy. What do you say?

RUBIO: Well, you just-- you just listed a litany of discredited attacks from Democrats and my political opponents, and I'm not gonna waste 60 seconds detailing them all. But I'm going to tell you the truth.

1. Damned if I'm going to get up at 2 AM (my time) to watch those clowns

I'm averaging about 4 hours of sleep a night as it is--October is always like this for me--and I doubt my health would be enhanced by getting less by watching a bunch of very predictable Republican whackos in the middle of the night auditioning for second place in the 2016 election.

Therefore, I'm going to have to check the box marked "all of the above."

2. I think of the parts I heard about, Rubio did take that prize.

I suspect Trump doesn't even read his own 'positions'.

Go through the list one by one. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, . . .

5. If he's the nominee, he just created the ad that will take him down.
