It seems like after each election, we find the new Conservative Messiah (a little Bobby Jindal anyone?).

But I am puling for this guy to stay on course and emerge as a true Voice for Conservatives in the Republican Wasteland.

Is it too soon to say Demint/Rubio 2012?

Did he use a teleprompter? My guess would be No (I didn’t see the speech).

Impressive. He personifies the American Voice. I thank Florida for electing him. The country needs the likes of him.

Oh, c'mon!

For many of us, our only "messiah" is currently sitting at the Right Hand of God, and we await His return.

He was born in Miami, Florida. And he has a birth certificate to prove he is a natural born citizen, unlike some other people I know./sarc

That might lower Rush's accuracy rating. Wiki says Rubio was born in Miami. And he's only 39. The big exodus from Cuba occurred in the late 1950s and early '60s. I think his parents came to the US in those years.

That still makes him a natural born citizen. He’s a contender.

I understand (from all the discussion about Obama’s eligibility) that, for presidential eligibility, its not enough to be born in the U.S.A., your parents must be U.S. citizens at the time. Which, of course, immediately eliminates Obama!

Did he use a teleprompter? My guess would be No (I didn’t see the speech).

I'm nearly certain that he used a mini teleprompter on the lectern right in front of him. The telltale hint is that during the main speech, he rarely, if ever, addressed the audience directly in front of him, which would have forced him to look down to read the lines. By sweeping his head from side to side, but only posing for the extremes, he was able read without looking like he is reading.

I heard Rush talking today, too; and he was a little confusing when he was talking about Rubio. He was talking about Rubio's story about his dad not being born here. But I agree, he wasn't totally clear when he said it; and by the end of his commentary, he cleared it up that the story was about Rubio's dad and not Marco.

(And by now you've heard here that Rubio was born in Miami.)

Very similar to JFK but better and without that freaky accent. Palin said Rubio was impressive. He sure is.

Here's what Rush said:

Now, this is interesting because Marco Rubio has lived it. His father wasn't born here. Marco Rubio didn't read about it in a book, as he said. He does not have to wonder what the people who paid the price had to go through. You know, of all the things, I love that particular bite. He "grew up largely in a society where what you were going to be when you grew up was decided for you like almost every other place in the world." Here is a short explanation of American exceptionalism. "This is like almost every other place in the world. Think about what that means. It means that before you are even born, how far you were gonna go in life is decided for you by who your parents are or are not." It's true, in part, in this country. The Kennedys are a great example. But it's not true for everybody. You don't need special circumstances to get anywhere in this country. You do everywhere else.

Emphasis added.

No, that's not true. You just have to be born here, or born subject to U.S. jurisdiction (like on an overseas U.S. base, or whatnot).

Good deaal! My mom voted for him. I expect my 3 brothers voted for him, but have not checked. I could give up the dry Colorado environment and put up with the oppressive Florida humidity again just to vote for him.

I don't know if he used teleprompter for acceptance speech, but I have seen him speak and he did not even use notes. My impression was that he spoke from his heart and didn’t need any help. If someone advised him to us a teleprompter, mini or not, they need to find a new job. We should pray that the garbage in DC does not pollute this man.

Well, based on the legal definition of "natural born" that I learned about on FR, he is not eligible for the Presidency. Neither is Obama, of course, but no courts will hear the case. I bet if he runs, the Dems will get tons of courts to decide that issue.

I know Marco well and have heard him speak dozens of times. He never needs a teleprompter, and he always speaks in complete sentences, with proper grammar, and his thoughts are organized coherently. The only time he uses notes is when he has names and titles of people to acknowledge during his opening.
He may still have the video of his Speakership acceptance speech on his website. It is 30+ minutes along the same theme and will bring you to tears. His parents were sitting in the audience as he talked about standing on their shoulders to reach for the dream that eluded them.
He is really a great orator and an asset to the Senate.

Actually, you should read up on the subject, as I have. There is an interesting legal argument, based on the intent of the founders and the definition of “natural born” as they understood it, that a natural born citizen means someone born in the US whose parents are both citizens.
