    Judge him by what his heart wanted to do, not by what his wallet wanted.

    The right wanted the Obama admin to be tougher on Iran, so I'm sure they will be up in arms over this, right? Right? RIGHT?

    Glad they are grilling him, but it won't matter if he gets approved, since that means they will disregard that he/the company he was in charge of violated the law regarding sanctions against Iran.

    If Tillerson doesn't have Rubio's vote he could be in trouble.
    McCain and Graham are rumored No votes. Rubio being a no would mean 1 Democrat Would need to support him.

    Their lying will all be on the record now. When it all finally blows up and the impeachment proceedings begin, they'll be seen to have perjured themselves before Congress. It's a process, not an event. They can't cover all their tracks, but they can be caught in a lie.

    Rubio is undecided on Rex Tillerson.
    However Sen. Chris Coons could vote for Tillerson.
    People in Delaware flood this guy's office and stop Tillerson.
    If Rubio votes no and Coons saves him I will be pissed.

    He looks exactly like Bryan Cox the guy from the Bourne movies.

    Coons sounds like he's going to vote for him on Hardball just now.

    Unless I missed it, how can nobody bring up his business dealings with Iran when they were under sanctions? Bunch of wusses, both sides.

    I would be surprised if Coons voted for Tillerson. He says he is undecided right now and maybe he is. But I think at the end he will vote against him.

    Wish Rubio was 5-8 years older and had a slightly more successful history in Florida before 2016. The guy could, potentially, save the conservative party.
