Tea Party Turns on Rubio

Dana Milbank: "Much of the scene was familiar: the yellow flags, the banners protesting tyranny and socialism, the demands to impeach President Obama and to repeal Obamacare. But there was a new target of the conservatives' ire: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and his 'amnesty' plan for illegal immigrants. The loathing of this onetime darling of the movement -- Rubio rode the tea party wave to office in 2010 -- could be seen in the homemade signs on the East Lawn of the Capitol proclaiming, 'Rubio RINO' (Republican In Name Only) and 'Rubio Lies, Americans Die.' Rubio antagonism became a main theme of the event."
