Marco Rubio’s speech did not send a thrill up Chris Matthew’s leg
Washington Examiner ^ | February 13, 2013 | Charlie Spiering

Matthews described the speech as “tinkertoy” and “juvenile,” “primitive,” and “something you would hear on the high school debating team.”

Maybe that’s how you have to explain GOP politics to the low information crowd. In fact, the five year old level might be too advanced.

Sock puppets might be more appropriate.

It looks like the money is going to Rubio. Which candidate is the Tea Party going to rally behind? It will kill me if we divide our vote again.

Possible scenario: Rubio takes the forefront (for the conservatives, of course, but ignore his amnesy push) into the primaries to fend off the half-dozen other 'conservatives' who show up. After a few bloodbaths and several of the 'conservatives' drop out, jBush steps up and becomes the annointed one. [Rubio, being the good little soldier, and being younger, will get his chance later -- 2024 or so.]

The next 'it's his turn' guy is Jeb -- if he wants it. And he has been making some noise in that direction.

The 'conservatives' will be splintered again, unless they wise up real soon -- which they won't. Look at the many GOP frontrunnter threads from 2012, each one to falter soon thereafter: Bachmann, Perry, Trump, Cain, Gingrich, Santorum, and finally, resulting in Romney, who lost the general.

Matthews couldn’t carry Rubio’s water.

We do err to think Conservative Americanism IS more complicated than a high school debate.

It is much more straight forward than the contortions and gyrations libtards go through to convince the public that screwing us is good for the country.

I hate Chris Matthews, real hate. I would pay money for a chance to punch him in his stupid, vile mouth.

—I have no use for Chris Matthews, but Rubio always sounds like that to me. It feels like Mr. Rogers explaining GOPe politics to a group of five years. Simplistic and patronizing.—

Have you seen the inteligence of people who vote lately? I’m being serious. Simplistic is exactly what we need. Especially coming from Government.

I'd like to see the Establishment push Jeb. Conservatives are done with the Bushes.

If Sarah ran, she could have knocked out Romney. So rallying behind a single conservative is possible.

I see a race divided between Ryan, Rubio, Paul and possibly the new doctor guy.

Consider the source, his remaining 15-20 viewers, and ignore him.

I think you are right. Or just a racist. . . why would he say that about a Latino Senator? >)

Rubio appears every bit as white as I am. His forebearers would have qualified for the Cuban elite.
