(TIME) Good news for Marco Rubio fans! The junior Senator from Florida is ready to be President, according to, um, the junior Senator from Florida himself. Rubio may or may not be ready to hold the most powerful job in the world, but one thing is clear: He’s certainly prepared to run for it, at least in the modern Republican Party. If there was any doubt on that score, it was settled during an interview on ABC News on Sunday, when he checked one of the most important boxes on any GOP hopeful’s job application: declaring that he did not, could not, would not, believe that climate change is real.

“I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it,” Rubio said. “I think severe weather has been a fact of life on Earth since man started recording history.”

Those two sentences alone are a clinic in the art of the counter-factual, non-scientific dodge that can never be proven wrong because it says nothing at all.

That last sentence is amazing.

Lacking the ability to run in issues like jobs, the economy, the disintegrating image of The United States in the world stage, the success of socialized medicine (Obamacare), and the decline of our economic global influence because they all paint a stark picture of the failures of leftists policies in effect, the Democratic Party wants to judge the viability of a Rubio candidacy based on an argument about the weather.
