Rubio on the other hand is what he is. Why did Rubio lie that he was the child of exiles from the Castro regime? Got an explanation? Maybe the half of your family can explain that. Just give me an explanation why.
I can explain to you why my Cuban-American friends are turning against him: They supported him because he was one of them. Either his parents had similar stories as some of my friends of the older generation or Rubio himself had similar stories as my friends of the younger generation. He symbolized the Cuban-Americans who are either descendents of Cubans who left because of Castro and he symbolized through his parents the generation who left Cuba because of Castro. That symbolism fell apart when it became known (after his election) that his parents left Cuba BEFORE Castro took over. Not just a few days or a few weeks or a few months before but a solid 3 (!!!) years. Therefore they have every right to change their minds. Here is what one of them said about Rubio: He is the cheap Cuban version of Mitt Romney.
