Guys, Big Gulp is putting on his big boy pants and positioning hisself for the 2024 Goat Rodeo!
After the 2020 election, Republicans need to rebrand their party as the champions of working-class voters and steer away from its traditional embrace of big business, Sen. Marco Rubio said in an interview with Axios.
In other words, Republicans cannot run as, you know, Republicans.
Why it matters: Rubio told me he is leaving the door open for a 2024 presidential run — so his comments are some of the earliest signals of how the GOP contenders may try to acknowledge President Trump’s successes while finding their own path.
- “The future of the party is based on a multiethnic, multiracial working class coalition,” said Rubio.
“You know,” he didn’t add, “as long as that working class coalition is white.”
Rubio said Republicans have long believed in and supported the free market, “but the free market exists to serve our people. Our people don’t exist to serve the free market.”
SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!!1!
- He added that working class Americans are now largely against big businesses “that only care about how their shares are performing, even if it’s based on moving production overseas for cheaper labor.”
In other words, working class people are against Republicans.
The bottom line: “We still have a very strong base in the party of donors and think tanks and intelligentsia from the right who are market fundamentalists, who accuse anyone who’s not a market fundamentalist of being a socialist to some degree,” Rubio said.
You mean like that well-known bolshevik, Joe Biden? Yes, Marco, you have a long way to go.
