Marco Rubio's Reagan speech 'drove extreme liberals crazy' and he turns it into fundraising pitch



Liberals were quick to jump on Sen. Marco Rubio's Reagan Library speech, particularly his characterization that entitlement programs have "weakened us as a people." A group paid for misleading Facebook ads in Florida and then there was this segment on MSNBC:

Now Rubio's using the attacks to raise money for his recently-created Reclaim America PAC. "The speech drove extreme liberals crazy, and they are on the attack," read an email this afternoon from the PAC. "We need your help to fight back and support limited government candidates who share Marco"s conservative vision for America."

The email goes on:

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow chopped up Marco's words and distorted them, even weaving in mentions of Marco's parents to attack him.

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.
