"got a good book there. not many answers in it." but actually rubio says "all of the answers are in it." a blatant fabrication top cruz spokesman.. rick tyler.. who circulated the video ... apologized to rubio on facebook.. for, quote, "posting an inaccurate story about him." but rubio snapped that's not good enough. (sen. marco rubio/(r) presidential candidate) "at some point there has to be some level of accountability, otherwise yore running an
