Marco Rubio, the Republican Savior?

The cover of the most recent Time magazine has a full-size picture of Marco Rubio and dubs him “The Republican Savior.” Senator Rubio tweeted a response today, and it is classic. He writes:

There is only one savior, and it is not me. #Jesus

There was once another politician who responded very differently to such acclaim, and the outcome wasn’t so good for him (Daniel 4:29-37). So this is a very good response from Senator Rubio. It’s exactly what he should have said.

    Well, he could have said “There is only one savior and I am not him. #Jesus”

    I had seen the magazine cover but not his response. That makes me think even more highly of him. BTW, he was my choice for Romney’s running mate, but now I’m kind of glad he wasn’t chosen (refused to run?) so he doesn’t have the albatross of a lost election hanging around his neck. I think he would have been better than Ryan, but it wouldn’t have made enough difference to swing the election.

    Do we have any response from President Obama regarding the Newsweek cover declaring “The Second Coming” and other Messianic statements regarding him? http://christiannews.net/2013/01/21/newsweek-hails-obama-as-messianic-second-coming/

    I can’t help but think of Jamie Foxx calling Obama his Lord and Savior. He [Foxx] didn’t back down from that.

    I think Rubio is just another politician saying what he needs to say to his base. Maybe he means it; maybe he doesn’t, but I’ve seen way to many politicians who use Christianity as a political tool to take anything any of them say very seriously.
