GOP Advocates English-Only Except When Marco Rubio is About to Lose in Florida

Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who is of Cuban descent, demanded that his Democratic rival, U.S. Representative Patrick Murphy conduct their next debate in Spanish.  Murphy declined, since he's not fluent in the language.  Rubio is now using this fact to attack his rival.

But hey, wait a minute.  Rubio has endorsed Donald Trump, who according to Politico, chided Jeb Bush last year for "speaking another language on the campaign trail."  

Trump declared: “This is a country where we speak English, not Spanish.”  The crowd at the Ronald Reagan presidential library roared their approval and Trump has maintained a staunch English-only stance throughout his campaign.  

So, where does that leave Rubio, a politician with the solidity of jello?  Fortunately, Murphy's campaign is in the ascendancy and is now tied with his GOP rival.  If you wish to contribute $3 to Murphy in order to help flip the Senate back to the Democrats, this is his website.
