Dan Balz, WashPost LIAR Extraordinaire......Rubio Hit Piece
People need to ask themselves what is so dangerous about Marco Rubio that wasn't dangerous about Barrack Obama. It's simple. Minorities leaving the Liberal Plantation. Rubio, an Hispanic, Cain, a Black, and Palin, a woman. WHERE WAS THE VETTING OF OBAMA, THE KENYAN MARXIST ?
The Washington Post story by Dan Balz, "Marco Rubio’s compelling family story embellishes facts, documents show", is the embellish-er of fact.
The Miami Herald even states that the Washington Post and Balz have embellished details.
"The catch: If you listen to the speech, Rubio isn't just talking about those who specifically fled Cuba after Castro took power. He doesn't say that his parents fled Cuba. Instead, he was talking about "a community of exiles." That is: He was talking about all the Cubans who live in Miami.
Actually Dan Balz lies in several regards:
1. Rubio never stated that his parents originally left Cuba after Castro took power.
2. Rubio's mother returned to Cuba after Castro took power to assess the situation and left Cuba, making her an exile of Castro's Cuba.
Rubio issued a response and emphatically denied the Balz (Balzless more appropriate) "story".
" “To suggest my family’s story is embellished for political gain is outrageous. The dates I have given regarding my family’s history have always been based on my parents’ recollections of events that occurred over 55 years ago and which were relayed to me by them more than two decades after they happened. I was not made aware of the exact dates until very recently.
“What’s important is that the essential facts of my family’s story are completely accurate. My parents are from Cuba. After arriving in the United States, they had always hoped to one day return to Cuba if things improved and traveled there several times. In 1961, my mother and older siblings did in fact return to Cuba while my father stayed behind wrapping up the family’s matters in the U.S. After just a few weeks living there, she fully realized the true nature of the direction Castro was taking Cuba and returned to the United States one month later, never to return.
"They were exiled from the home country they tried to return to because they did not want to live under communism. That is an undisputed fact and to suggest otherwise is outrageous.”
