Marco Rubio not told daughter was in accident until after rally for Romney

We need to know more, but I do find it interesting that no one reportedly told GOP Senator Marco Rubio that his daughter was airlifted to a hospital in stable condition following a car accident until AFTER he was done doing a campaign rally with Mitt Romney.

Miami Herald:

Rubio was notified of the accident after coming off stage while campaigning with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Kissimmee.

The Washington Post has the same story. And the AP is reporting that Rubio was informed after coming off stage AFTER the rally was over.

I don’t know about you, but if my child were in a car accident, and in bad enough shape that she needed to be airlifted, I’d like to know immediately, not after I’m done campaigning for Mitt Romney.

It will be interesting to see whose staff, Rubio’s or Romney’s, made the decision not to tell Rubio that his daughter was laying on a stretcher until after he was done giving his campaign speech for Mitt Romney.

    “Whomever”?  Very false over-correction.

    Someone certainly has an odd sense of priorities.  Especially since it would have given Mr. Etch-A-Sketch a good opportunity to fake empathy in front of a live audience.

    From the way that the Miami Herald article read, it seems as though Rubio was just tagging along and they let him out at a gas station to take a taxi the rest of the way.  I don’t imagine that that is what REALLY happened, but it sure doesn’t seem as though anyone offered to take him to the hospital.  I guess he’s just a high level of servant.

    Keep in mind, that during the Clinton Adm. the Republicans were against, and fought the Family Leave Act. The employer wants their employees to take care of the employers’ family.
