Now the LIB media has anointed Marco, interesting. If past performance is true, then we should not trust Rubio, at all. It's when the LIB media tries to destroy a conservative, see Sarah Palin, we should rally to support them.
Heh. Time is basically admitting that the left views Obama as their Savior.
So we have that going for us.
Why is the elite shoving this guy down our throats? I'm sick of him and he is no savior of Patriotic Christian Conservatives who are having their country stolen from them. He's just another politician pre-selected by our ruling masters. Get lost Rubio!
This is the MSM's pathetic attempt to get Conservatives to worship our leaders, like the Left does. Excuse the dialect but it ain't gonna happen. We worship God, not someone in the government. I already have a Savior, his name is Jesus. What I need in Washington is a "representative" who will represent me.
If I were leaning toward Rubio, seeing him endorsed by Time magazine would have put the kabosh on that. I wish Mark Levin would see the man for the rino he is.
Reagan was but one bright glimmer of hope for liberty. Bush1 immediately started unwinding all that Regan accomplished. Ever since, it has been one Progressive big-government election after another.. The death march of the Republic.
Rubio will as do as well as the next turtle to put up on the post.
Creepy Christie has come out in favor of online gambling - Wall Street Journal.
Online Gambling is a dangerous addiction leaving many people, including children, in poverty.
First time I saw Rubio's picture, I thought it was Michael Weatherly (aka Agent Tony DiNozzo from NCIS). Took me a bit to figure out that it wasn't him...
Well, Marco Rubio has had it. As soon as a Republican conservative is praised by the mainstream media, then you know he or she is finished. Pity.
Well, that's his goose cooked as far as proper conservatives are concerned: when the Dem propaganda machine, a.k.a. MSM, crown him already, a couple of weeks after the inauguration of the POS, then we know he and the GOp will lose in 2016 - should they be so demented and make him the only 'eligible' candidate MK III.
Rubio will win the nomination, lose, and then we'll hear again "Nobody shoved Rubio down anyone's throat. Who else was there?" As regular as clockwork.
Face it, folks. The GOP's finished and it doesn't matter who the GOPe chooses as sacrificial lamb in 2016.
No he IS NOT. He is just another RINO. We need to start making them an endangered species one way or another.
I'm sorry but when a Bush mafia Don like Ed Gillespie is singing your praises it signals that the fix is in.
Gillespie is no friend of conservatives.
"Ed Gillespie, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, said Rubio is the 'most natural communicator' in the GOP since Ronald Reagan, I’ve not said that of anyone before,” he added.
"When he speaks, it's like someone tapped a tuning fork. He just hums," Gillespie said.
IMHO, Ed Gillespie is right, when it comes to a communicator Rubio is one of the best..
I personally always felt Sarah Palin was a very effective passionate communicator and her accent never bothered me, don't know why some people couldn't get past the accent. From me those two are the best communicators the GOP has had since Ronald Reagan.
Yes, but words DO matter. Your actions have to mirror what comes out of your mouth.
Sadly one of the politicians you cited joined the CBC. The other one fought them with a vengeance.
That's the difference.
Hehe, yes I did watch The Undefeated, just not recently so that acronym reference escaped me.
Yup I don't trust Rove, but about Ed Gillespie, there is nothing to trust, beause I heard Rubio speak before, and he just gave an opinion about Rubio, all I did was agree with his comment about being a natural communicator. Either you agree or you don't, it has nothing to do with trust. I don't follow Ed Gillespie and don't seek out his opinions.
Ah, did you not watch Steven Bannon's "The Undefeated?"
It stands for the Corrupt Ba$tards Club.
Do you trust Tokyo Rove? If not then why do you trust Ed Gillespie?
Rubio lacks humor and ease. Not a make or break issue, but he is not Reagan. He talks 100 mph. He talks AT people not to them. I mostly hear him on radio and I know that is a "say all you can in 5 mins" medium so there is pressure.
To nominate Rubio who is not a natural born citizen (his father was not a citizen when he was born) would be to legitimize Obama who has the same lack of Constitutional qualifications.
Obama is not and never can be a legitimate POTUS.
Um I'm not exactly worried about "legitimizing Obama." He's already got his second term and the birther movement is dead. No one cares.
Constitutional conservatives were fully aware at the time that the corrupt gopE was allowing the Democrats to do their dirty work for them and set precedent.
Sorry but you will come to find out that real constitutional conservatives DO care.
Unlike the corrupt gopE who believe, "Don't think, we'll think for you" we are not sheeple and think for ourselves. We DO know right from wrong. And we are not hypocrites. And we are not influenced by talk radio.
Many conservatives have already stated that they will not vote for Rubio and others for POTUS for this very reason.
Spin it as much as you like. No one believes you.
Yes, we are in a minority.
A) Anyone who actually has read and understands the constitution would never have stayed home on Nov. 6th.
B) Ergo, the fact that we lost means we are in a minority, because the low-info voters sure as hell don't understand the Constitution.
C) The Rove-type, neo-Rockerfeller Republicans don't give a rat's ass about the Constitution.
So we have to face facts.
But that doesn't mean we give up, and it doesn't mean they win. After all, we are nearly 100% armed compared to them. And we care about principles that trump their stupid "feelings." And many of us have managed to secure some prosperity in life. So I find reason to be very optimistic.
Conservatives did not stay home. The math simply doesn't support it, for one, and two, no conservative would have stayed home in the most important election since Lincoln. I know some fire-breathers disagree on this point, but I am adamant here. Don't claim to be conservative and brag about staying home on Nov 6, 2012. It won't wash. It will be a stain you can't get away from. Anyone telling you they stayed home had better get a face-full from you if you are a conservative. I give them all hell, and extra to spare. Phonies, all of them. ALL OF THEM.
We lost because Romney refused the mission: to champion conservative philosophy and principles. Instead he's a "values" guy. Values don't win elections for the right, principles do. That's the Reagan lesson, and it needs to be shoved in their faces until they get it.
Sorry but we are not in a minority. We did not like Etch-a-sketch, the elites told us he was electable, he got his precious Independents and still lost, why? Because conservatives stayed home. The same conservatives that know we are winning, that the gopE is severely damaged and fighting for their life for control. These same conservatives do not believe the gopE and will not vote for Rubio and others.
I reside in Lt. Col. Allen West's former district. The gopE declared WAR and we mean to give it to them.
"Spin it as much as you like. No one believes you."
Actually, those of us who demand the Constitution be upheld are in a very small minority right now. We may not like where the birther business went, but she's right. With Obama's second inauguration, it has officially been mooted, and will now take nothing short of an amendment to fix. A very unlikely scenario.
So the calls for Rubio and Jindal to step aside due to the Natural Born issue will be laughed at by the majority of people on the right. ...Are being laughed at by a majority on the right. That's a fact we can't afford to ignore.
Look how hard they are trying to cram those guys down our throats already. Pointing to the Natural Born issue is useless when the country is being dismantled. We just need to get behind the right people, and fight the Rovian tools at every opportunity.
It has now all come down to the Second Amendment. We must press their faces into it and say, "This hill, is the one to die for. No more questioning whether it's the right hill anymore. This hill. Either man up and defend it, or accept the traitor's end." That's where we are. We start from there and move forward.
Like I stated before, spin it any way you like. Constitutional conservatives already are on the record saying they will not vote for Rubio and others because of this very reason.
Knock yourself out. It's your loss and you aren't convincing anyone. We have all been down this road before.
The term "natural born citizen" is not defined by the constitution but is most commonly understood as applying to one who has a claim to US citizenship at the time of their birth. Whether or not you like the 14th amendment, it provides that Rubio is a natural born citizen because he was born in Miami. I don't understand your claim that he isn't. Unless you have some other definition of natural born citizen or you've chosen to ignore the 14th amendment.
None of this is true. Just feel good rationalization. All these points have been challenged here many times and you have no counter.
These are all exactly the same talking points used to defend Obama's ineligibility. You are good with regurgtating them, you just have nothing to back them up.
All this is one big ole' coinky dink. :)
1) I didn't address Rubio's status as a citizen. I was just referring to the commentor's concerns about "legitimizing Obama." No one cares as I said before.

Ah.. marginalize the commenter as a "birther". Marginalize anyone who brings up an issue you cannot address - that is where the term "birther" came from". The left.
Jus sanguinis and jus soli, are two very different cornerstones of all sovereign citizenship rights going back to ancient Greece. These concepts have never changed. Neither Obama nor Rubio meet the definition of jus sanguinis by thier own admission.
Yep "who cares" now that our government conspired to violate the US Constitutions and set a dangerous precedent that will lead to usurpation of the Executive branch. "Move on". Rubio's a cool dude ya know.
Conniption Fitz mentioned Rubio's natural born citizen disqualification. It is an extremely important issue. You responded directly to it, dismissing it as the "birther" movement".
Pretty damn obvious.
Um I'm not exactly worried about "legitimizing Obama." He's already got his second term and the "birther" movement is dead.
That's your comment. Right there in black and white.
Alright, that's it. sDee I now will ignore your comments. You are incapable of being honest about what I have written. You incessantly put words in my mouth and set up strawmen. I very obviously did not call anyone a birther. Not even close. You also have a habit of ignoring my points and just switching to a different angle of attack. That's something someone does when they are wrong but incapable of admitting it. You have lost my respect and I cannot have productive discussions with you. I won't waste my time.
