Here's David Frum on Rubio's IQ:
.@kausmickey Danger of imm deal to GOP prez aspirants: by 2016, it will be clear how much untruth was spoken to sell it - and by whom— davidfrum (@davidfrum) June 24, 2013
.@kausmickey A danger specific to Rubio: increasingly apparent that he's not very astute at detecting self-serving BS from donors/staff— davidfrum (@davidfrum) June 24, 2013
Whenever I think of Rubio meeting his donors, I hear Kathleen Turner's voice in "Body Heat" (1/2):— davidfrum (@davidfrum) June 24, 2013
"You're not too smart, are you? I like that in a man." (2/2) Just substitute "senator," and it scans.— davidfrum (@davidfrum) June 24, 2013
In a post titled Schumer v. Rubio: Which One Looks Smarter? Steve Sailer contrasted Rubio's IQ with Chuck Schumer's (Schumer is supposed to have scored 1600 on his SATS).This a quote from that post:
"Rubio attended South Miami Senior High School and graduated in 1989. He then attended Tarkio College for one year on a football scholarship from 1989 to 1990, before enrolling at Santa Fe Community College ... He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Florida in 1993, and his J.D. degree cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law in 1996."
Rubio did not graduate from Tarkio College because it was shut down by the federal government for acting as a "front" to scam the student loan system...
We've had occasion to say that David Frum is wrongheaded, but no one can say he's not smart.
