Florida Senator Marco Rubio is using Ed's recent criticism of him as a fundraising pitch. Last week Rubio was lucky enough to be chosen for "Psychotalk" for saying that entitlement programs "actually weakened us as a people". Yesterday Rubio's political action committee - Reclaiming America issued a fundraising pitch centered on Ed's remarks:
"Ed Schultz attacked Marco's speech as 'psycho talk' and called Marco a 'political hack’. These are the typical attacks that are routinely launched against those who are standing up for our conservative principles. These extreme liberals have no interest in finding common sense solutions to the challenges facing our country. They just want to attack and tear down anyone who doesn't share their extreme ideology. Which is why we need your help us fight back. Your contribution of $100, $50, or even $25 will help us defend conservatives like Marco all across the country."
