And the fact he has ANY support shows people still ‘want to believe’.

Conservatives want the next Reagan..Rubio could have been it. Glad he exposed his big government, progressive self early. So we won't be disappointed by another Bush.

If Issa was half as smart as he thinks he is, he would have sunk Hillary with the blatant lies and dodged responsibilities already.
If not for Hillary, Benghazi would never have happened.

Mark Levin used to be all about this guy.

As was I. Amazing what time in Washington will do to conservatives

“The latest poll out of Iowa has former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton beating Florida Sen. Marco Rubio handily”

What difference does it make!!!

When the truth of Benghazi comes out, one of 2 things will happen:

Hillary will be the one who ordered the stand down order acting on behalf of the Persident
Or
She will sell out the President because he tossed her under the bus on Benghazi.
Okay, #3
The President guy will eliminate the 22nd ammendment.

I’ll take you on. I’m not afraid of your bombast.

Rush and Levin despise the amnesty-no border security bill.

Made it crystal clear.

They personally like Rubio.

As their shows come and go, they are getting more and more cold to Rubio.

You and your buds don’t have the facts on your side. Reading this, the ignorant would absolutely swear that Levin and Rush support Rubio’s stupid bill, when the truth is the exact opposite.

Jeb won’t be the nominee. Neither will Christie, and they’d be idiots to even try it. Remember, Jeb declined to even have his name on the straw poll, because he knew he’d get 2 votes. Tokyo Rove and him.

I think there’s a good chance that Rubio will be the most moderate guy in our field.

Facts are bombast? Since when?

Rush and Levin are supporting a man whose plan will end America. Is that true or not? They are supporting him, thus giving credence to his ‘reform’ or they are not. Pick one.

I saw it and I was screaming at the TV as though he could here my comments.
He said the border would be secure. He said that none would be eligible for Obamacare or Welfare, which, as of Monday was crossed off the Bill.

You know Harry Reed is behind this.

Obamacare mandates all Americans have health ins. If they are made legal, they will be mandated. If unemployed, the Govt will pay it.

Rubio is a liar.

Nah, he’s killed that possibility also. And in his desperation he’s bringing Paul Ryan down with him also as far as having any potential to be the Republican nominee for either President or Vice-President.

“Levin backed Hatch...”
_________________________

As a Utahan, I was seriously pi$$ed when Levin not only supported the Establishment Hatch, but was also snarky when describing Hatch’s challenger.

Levin's a good guy, but he's not beyond picking lousy candidates sometimes.

Back to your original point, LOL

libs like many here rally around those of their own attacked....Angle, Akin etc... its a human thing that can be a flaw and weakness.

WE are seen by them as going after Hillary...that rallies libs to Hillary even though they hated her in 2008 for competing with Obama. They may still see her as unbeatable in that... and to your point...we let her be nominated by Dems and then Boom....we drop the bombs... let her be Dems McCain/Romney....

I will not vote for any man or woman who votes for amnesty and against the repeal of 0care. RUBIO has joined the ranks of RINOS like cry baby. SELL OUTS!

At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Franklin was queried as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation. In the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Convention, a lady asked Dr. Franklin “Well Doctor what have we got, a republic or a monarchy.” Franklin replied, “A republic . . . if you can keep it.”

To honor the memories of the over a million men and women who gave the last full measure of devotion to keep this country a Republic, all of us must be as strong and wise as our Founding Fathers, or we will lose the Republic our Founders gave us, the only one in the world to the Marxist, Socialist and Communist that infest our congress and WH

Just for what it’s worth, I would bet that Rush and Levin will sour on Rubio if he keeps pushing his plan. It doesn’t mean that they have to condemn him to hell.

IMHO, one aspect of the big DC immigration push was to take-out Rubio by making him unpalatable to the Republican base.

And he's the smartest guy in any room. I hope he runs. But if it's Rand vs Rubio, or Jeb, or The Blob, I won't hesitate to vote for Paul.

Yes. Just because their good friend is trying to destroy the country by throwing open the borders, increasing the debt exponentially, driving the wages of people through the floor, increasing the level of crime, slapping the faces of legal immigrants, ensuring the political dynasty of the Democrat Party and a few hundred other equally beneficial things, we wouldn’t want to resort to harsh language or a strongly worded letter.

Rubio deserves to be at minimum run out of the political right, not praised as a conservative by supposed conservatives. If you think that we should accept his ‘good friends’ and their top 2 rated talk shows just driving the country left with the acceptance of the above, and promoting the guy promoting it, I really don’t know what to tell you that doesn’t involve harsh language of my own.

The “democracy” in IA didn’t get to send their bill off in 1992 because of Harkin as a placeholder. They will want to be sure to be there to push Hillary to the nod in 2016; nothing can stop the IA “democracy”. It means business!

Well to paraphrase that old senator Roman L. Hruska, R-NE, “even corpses need a little representation too.” I think he said that in 1970 when Judge Carswell, a Supreme Court nominee, was called “mediocre”, and Hruska said even the “mediocre need representation.”

I don’t know about Norm, but I supported Santorum even after he pulled out and had embarrassed himself with his premature endorsement of “Trayvon.” I just voted for him as a placeholder against Romney; then for Romney in the fall.

Given how Roberts was able to outsmart himself on Osamacare I’m thinking Hruska was right, we could do with a mediocre SC Justice as long as he was a conservative.
