Bad enough the New York Times thought it was newsworthy that Marco Rubio got 4 traffic tickets in 20 years. Next, they went after Rubio's lifestyle and finances. Apparently Rubio got an $800,000 advance in a book deal to tell the story of his Cuban heritage. From that he spent $80,000 on what the NY Times called "a luxury speedboat."
That conjours up images of some fast cigarette boat zipping over the waters of the bays around Miami. Here's what the boat looks like:

And have you heard the times complain that Kerry's yacht was made in New Zealand whereas Rubio's boat is made in the USA?

Here's Rubio's house on top followed below by Hillary Clinton's New York home. Who do you think is more in touch with the common man?
By the way, did the NY Times ever decry the $14,000,000 advance Hillary Clinton got for her book?
Isn't it ironic that uber rich Democrats get a pass on their wealthy lifestyle while hard working up and coming Hispanics like Marco Rubio get attacked for their modest gains? And did the Times ever wonder how Sen. Harry Reid, the Democrat leader in the U.S. Senate got rich earning a top salary of less than $200,000 a year? No, instead they go after Rubio and his boat!
