Destroy Marco Rubio
Flopping Aces ^ | 02-13-13 | DrJohn

Posted on 02/14/2013 10:34:31 AM PST by Starman417

Barack Obama's 2012 Presidential campaign was described succinctly in this term:

"Destroy Mitt Romney"

Never mind ideas or themes. Just destroy him. Thanks to the left's intellectual deficit, it worked.

Thing is, it's not over. There's always someone new in the GOP to destroy and today it's Marco Rubio, despite the pleadings of David Ignatius of the Washington Post.

CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Marco Rubio has been designated as the Republican respondent, right, which is pretty smart I guess because he's the hot hand. Immigration jumps right out at that guy when you see him. He's Cuban-American, he’s talked on the issue. Will the president stick it to him and say, “I'm going to be good on immigration, you guys are going to have to handle the issue?”

DAVID IGNATIUS, WASHINGTON POST: Well, I think he's going to make immigration one of the issues he talks about in the State of the Union. The State of the Union is good, but here are the things we need to do. He’s going to talk about immigration reform, he's going to talk about climate change. He's going to certainly talk about bringing the troops home from the wars. I think he'll announce a number of troops that will be withdrawn.

But, you know, the Marco Rubio question gets to whether Obama can get out of the zero sum game Washington where to do something good on immigration reform, he's got to, you know, destroy Marco Rubio who is the Republican symbol of progress on that. And I'm looking to see whether he can lift his game beyond where he was in his inaugural address and really speak to the country, speak to the people who didn't vote for him as well as the people who did, and have a platform for really doing something.

Marco Rubio delivered the GOP rebuttal to Barack Obama's horribly repetitive State of the Union address, in which he said pretty much the same hollow and meaninginless things he's said over the last five years.

But then Rubio made a terrible mistake. He took a sip of water. Now anyone with half a brain knows that listening to an Obama speech can drain you of energy and vitality, but that did not stop the Obama State Run Media. They sprang into action to implement the words of their king- to destroy Rubio.

The personal attacks work. Even Repubs will fall for them. They'll back away from the person targeted and look for someone with less “baggage”.

Rubio is not my favorite Repub. But I'm not going to let the press make up my mind about him either for or against.

Once they've destroyed one, they move on to the next. There will never be a Repub or conservative without “baggage”. Whoever you support, if they are viewed as a threat to the Dems or to the establishment, they will be hit with a mudstorm and weaker souls will be looking for a place to hide and looking for that mythical candidate who doesn't have “baggage”... that is, someone who hasn't been targeted yet.

One more thing. I remember the moment the Dem establishment decided to drop Howard Dean as their flag-bearer. They seized on his exuberant “whoop” and suddenly he was dead to them. And everyone accepted that the scream was the reason he dropped into the abyss rather than notice the more ominous truth: the word went out that he was done, and lock-step and with absolute unanimity, all the press organs in America agreed instantly and with identical cover stories.

Who has that power?

Well put. But you need to add that the GOP itself has often been complicit in these campaigns of destruction. When Palin and her family were being raked over by blown-up distractions and outlandish smears, the GOP establishment not only didn’t lift a finger, but joined right in.

I’ve always been vacilating back-and-forth in regards to the reasoning for this. On one hand, was it just sheer cowardice in the face of the massive liberal-media complex? Or, was it because they view such small-government outsider/reformers as an enemy that needs to be eradicated from the political field the same way their Dem bretheren do? Maybe, and most likely, a bit of both. Whichever the case, the GOP sure comes out looking horribly.

When it comes to Rubio, I’m inclined to expect a rallying to him by the GOP, not so much to combat the vile unfairness in this attempt to delegitimize him, but because Rubio himself is no danger to the establishment. Since his election, he continually distanced himself from the tea-party and cozied up to the McCain crowd, and now adding his amnesty views, Rubio himself is now part and parcel of the beltway power establishment.

Rubio can come back from this easily if he laughs along with everyone else, turns it into a joke on himself, and gets lots of coaching and (nonrecorded) speech time in front of audiences so that he becomes even better in front of the camera than His Majesty Barack I.

Rubio should get some coaching, and in a few weeks make the rounds of the “hip” talk shows — Craig Ferguson, Leno, Jimmy Fallon, etc. If he can look cool and be funny on those shows, this will be a plus for him, not a minus. It’s up to him to turn it around. If he’s smart enough to do that, maybe he’s smart enough to be POTUS too.

Destroy Marco Rubio

No need to destroy Marco Rubio. The more he opens his mouth, the more clear he makes it that he has jumped the shark and sides with the GOPe.

Which means that every time he speaks, he destroys himself.



And, yes, I read the article and know it is about the DBM attacks on him over the drink of water.

Marco Rubio has already disqualified himself from deserving the support of conservatives by his refusal to acknowledge his ineligibility for the Officee of the President due to his not being a natural born citizen as required by the Constitution. He is acting in violation of the Oath of Allegiance he was required to swear upon taking his legislative office. When you consider the American lives lost to protecvt and defend the United States and the Constitution which gives life to the principles affording us our freedoms and liberties, Rubio’s decision to not respect the Constitution’s eligibility clause amounts to a disrespect for the United States Citizens, the Constitution, and the people who ddied to defend them. Rubio is his own worst enemy by his own actions in defiance of the Constitution and his obligations under the Oath of Allegiance.

Probably the best thing for Conservatives is to get Rubio out now .....he is Amnesty Liberal and the Dems know that Real Conservatives will not vote for an Amnesty Liberal.

Its time to move on from Rubio...he is too liberal and not eligible

Marco Rubio was born is Miami, Florida. He is, therefore, a natural born citizen of the United States.

If you want to trash the Constitution...fine, do so.

There is nothing pertaining to your parents status regarding your citizenship. He was born in Miami, Florida.

Rubio a natural born citizen of the United States, so he is eligible to be President.

There have been tens of dozens of threads with many hundreds of replies, over the last several years, many extremely well researched and factual comments made. You are wrong, the only question is why you cling to being wrong.

Maybe you are married to a non citizen and want your kids to be able to be president.

Maybe you are a non citizen yourself and want your kids to be able to be president.

Maybe you are a leftist POS.

Maybe you are just nuts.

Whatever your “reasoning”, I do not care.

Marco Rubio’s parents were Cuban citizens at the time of his birth and long after his birth, so he was a natural born citizen of Cuba and a native born U.S. citizen upon his birth in the United States. Marco Rubio retained his natural born Cuban citizenship until he reached the age of majority and afterwards until Cuban law no longer recognized his right to claim or reclaim his natural born Cuban citizenship. By definition, a person cannot be a natural born citizen of the United States if the person has eever at anytime possessed foreign citizenship and allegiance at birth or after birth to a foreign sovereign. Although Marco Rubio relinquished the right to claim his natural born Cuban citizenship at his age of majority, that does nothing to change the fact that he possessed Cuban citizenship at and after his birth and thereby was ineligible at birth to ever serve in the Office of the President of the United States or as the Office of the Vice President. Having concurrent native born U.S. citizenship does nothing whatsoever to change Marco Rubio’s ineligibility die to his foreign citizenship at birth. The same ineligibility applies to Bobby Jindal for the same reasons.

Respect the Constitution or join the Liberals trying to destroy it.

“Respect the Constitution or join the Liberals trying to destroy it.”

I’m sorry that your crackerjack law degree isn’t valid in any state.

There are two ways to become a citizen in the United States. You can enter a non-citizen and become a naturalized citizen or you can be born in the US and are by birth right a natural born citizen.

Rubio was born in Miami, Florida and is a natural born citizen.

“Rubio was born in Miami, Florida and is a natural born citizen.”

That is exactly the same argument being used by the Obama supporters, so you are arguing like an Obama supporter. Unfortunately for your argument and for you, the argument is a fantasy with no basis in reality. Under the laws of Cuba, any child of two Cuban citizens born in a foreign country was born with Cuban citizenship, and the citizenship. This natural born citizenship, citizenship based upon the citizenship of the parents upon the child’s birth, would be forfeited if certain conditions were not met by the age of majority. That is a fact. The natural born citizen clause was written for the express purposed of denying eligibility to any person who was born with allegiance to a foreign sovereign after the adoption of the Constittution and its natural born citizenship clause. Marco Rubio was born with allegiance to the his parent’s sovereign nation, which was Cuba. The fact that Marco Rubio was native born in the United States and therefore had the option of forfeiting his natural born Cuban citizenship at or after his age of majority is irrelevant to the question of whether or not he was born with a natural born allegiance to a foreign sovereign and foreign nation of Cuba.

You can dodge, twist, and obfuscate all you want with non-existant and/or fallacious authorities, but the simple fact remains that Marco Rubio’s parent chose to remain Cuban citizens long after Marco Rubio’s birth, and Marco Rubio was natural born with a Cuban citizenship which disqualified him at birth.

If you persist in denying such blatantly obvious realities as his Cuban citizenship at birth and the natural born citizen cluse and its clear inteent, it can only be concluded that you support the same argument being used by the Obama supporters and the Liberals which is destructive of the Constitution.

Seriously, you wrote all of that?

Why didn’t you just say...I am Birther and I am proud, like Helen Reddy?

My arguments are not from any Obama arguments. To the contrary, it is you who use the lack of support for your case.
You show no precedent to support your case. No legal argument. You simply just believe it to be true because you state it such.

The Birther argument fails on the definition of “Natural Born Citizen”. There is legal precedent to support my side of the argument. Your side of the argument depends on “hope and change”, because you just know it so.

Obama fails to produce a Birth Cert that is real, which brings into question his citizenship. He has hidden his college records, probably to hid his foreign student ID. But, there is no legal argument in the definition of “natural born”.

Rubio has a valid Birth Cert. and clearly is a natural born citizen as follows from the Constitution and the legal precedent developed in other cases which authoritatively define Natural Born....as being born in the United States.
