Rubio Calls Biden’s NSA Team ‘Polite & Orderly Caretakers of America’s Decline’
Now that Donald Trump has finally allowed the transition of power to begin, those still clinging to their loyalty are working overtime to discredit the incoming Biden Administration. Biden had been announcing White House Senior Staff as well as Cabinet appointments before the funds were released, but now that they’re full steam ahead and introducing their National Security Team, Republicans are being faced with having to find something to pick on amongst a group of incredibly experienced individuals who have long careers of doing excellent work in their positions.
Clearly envious of the competency they’ll be facing beginning in January where they won’t be able to get away with anything–especially if Democrats are able to flip two vital Senate seats in the Georgia Senate runoffs and take over the Senate majority–the kids from Shop class are resorting to picking on the smart kids for being smart. Leading the whiny charge is none other than “Liddle” Marco Rubio, who suggested on Tuesday that he would oppose the confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden’s national security team.
Rubio was famously dubbed “Little Marco” by his former political opponent Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, but like his fellow former Trump critics Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz, Rubio has now become one of Trump’s most devoted surrogates. Often obtusely tweeting Bible verses, Rubio gets dragged regularly for not seeing the hypocrisy in his own words. Upon learning of the security appointments, Rubio said Biden’s selections “will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline,” criticizing their professional credentials and Washington bona fides. Rubio sits on both the Senate Foreign Relations and Intelligence committees, and if the GOP retains the Senate majority, this could be an early indication of the kind of obstruction Biden will face.
Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline
I support American greatness
And I have no interest in returning to the “normal” that left us dependent on China

Biden has announced plans to nominate Antony Blinken as secretary of State and Linda Thomas-Greenfield as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations — jobs whose occupants require Senate confirmation. The president-elect has also named Jake Sullivan as his national security adviser, a White House role on which the Senate has no say. They join a handful of other high-profile nominees who are veterans of the Obama administration.
You supported a racist white nationalist who raided the Treasury, monetized and nepotized the presidency, gutted the infrastructure and destroyed our standing globally. If that's your vision of "American greatness," you have more issues than your envy of an Ivy League education.
