CPAC Organizers Shame Marco Rubio, Accuse Him Of ‘Rookie Mistake’
A pattern seems to be is emerging with Senator Rubio where he wilts under pressure and cuts and runs for expediency under pressure. If pressure via the inability to face up to either a demanding or packed against him audience is a basic part of his temperament, then that fact would seem to preclude his ability to be president.
Nobody should be in the position of being Commander in Chief of the armed services, asking for men to go into battle and to face much sterner situations than a hostile political audience, if they themselves are subject to wilting under much less trying circumstances.
It is unimaginable that John F.Kennedy, George G.W.Bush and even Richard Nixon, men tested in battle, would have wilted under pressure like Senator Rubio did when Governor Christie ran him into the ground (as he basically admitted) on the debate stage.
Again, Rubio's apparent wilting, almost literally, under pressure surfaced in the now notorious "water bottle" incident during his State of The Union reply where he was thrust in to the national spotlight for the first time.
Donald Trump has commented on Rubio under pressure from up close first hand experience
"Donald Trump focused his trademark social media fury on Marco Rubio on Monday night, launching a volley of critical tweets at the Florida senator on his immigration record as well as a few insults, saying he "chokes" under pressure.
"Marco Rubio is a total lightweight who I wouldn't hire to run one of my smaller companies -- a highly overrated politician!" Trump tweeted.Trump followed that tweet with criticism of how Rubio delivered the Republican response to Obama's State of the Union address in 2013.
"Marco Rubio couldn't even respond properly to President Obama's State of the Union Speech without pouring sweat & chugging water. He choked!""Marco Rubio is totally weak on illegal immigration & in favor of easy amnesty. A lightweight choker -- bad for USA!"
"Trump say Rubio sweats to much to negotiate with Putin;He looked like he just came out of a swimming pool"
And now we have the truly bizarre circumstance where Rubio cancelled a major meeting with a few minutes notice From Breitbart;
"Marco Rubio Cancels Conservative Review Event Appearance Five Minutes Before His Speech"
COLUMBIA, S.C. –canceled his scheduled appearance at the Conservative Review Conference in South Carolina five minutes before he was slated to go on stage.
COLUMBIA, S.C. –canceled his scheduled appearance at the Conservative Review Conference in South Carolina five minutes before he was slated to go on stage. harshly criticized Rubio on his amnesty positions right before the Florida senator was supposed to go on stage.
Rubio, Tim Scott, and pro-Rubio South Carolina governor Nikki Haley did have time for a photo-friendly trip to the Beacon Drive-In in Spartanburg, S.C. Thursday afternoon before the conference.
The campaign manager of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is piling on, saying that Rubio’s decision to cut and run is proof he’s incapable of serving as a commander in chief"

Clearly there is a major pattern developing of wilting under pressure and cutting and running which exposes Rubio's youth and inexperience and what appears to be a major personality flaw.
Research has turned up this earlier example of cutting and running for expediency which taken with the subsequent chain of events seems to make a clear case for Trump's observations to be correct. On the positive side the exposure of Rubio's failing should ensure he is not in a position of power and responsibility which of course the senate is not) for at least the coming presidential election.
