Rubio boo'ed off stage at Orlando's Calle Orange event

...by a Latino crowd, no less.

According to the Orlando Weekly (alternative newspaper) -- as well as NPR and other media outlets -- it did not play out the way Marco and his campaign staff had hoped.
"I'm going to introduce a man who represents Latinos, no matter where you're from," the emcee boomed in Spanish. The boos grew louder still. "Ladies and gentlemen, the senator for the state of Florida, a Latino like you and me ... his name is Marco Rubio! Applaud!"

Instead, the boos rained down on the senator, drowning out what appeared to be a handful of supporters in the crowd.


The NPR report goes on to say that Rubio's support of Drumpf has become an albatross around Marco's neck. And, as one attendee Tweeted, "So @marcorubio just showed up at a largely Puerto Rican street fair in Orlando and got booed of (sic) the stage big time."

As it turns out, the Republican strategy of grouping all Latinos into one demographic has backfired on them. When you attack Mexicans as a group, the people from Puerto Rico, South America and other Central American countries do not take kindly to that approach.

I wish I could have been there!

6. The Florida GOP actually believes the (VERY OLD) Miami Cuban community is the definition of the

Latin/Immigrant electorate. They are two fold, the wealthy that fled to the United States with their money when Castro took power that want the US to restore (on the US taxpayers dime) their holdings in Cuba even though the actually brought most of their wealth with them. The rest are the Cuban economic refugees that are no different than any other "illegals" but they have special status to get your feet on US soil and you're good. Both are dying in electoral politics, but it still may be a few more election cycles before they reconstitute themselves as something equally evil. (they haven't figured it out yet).
