Marco Rubio on FOX News Sunday - Grand Slam!!! (Vanity)
May 6, 2012 | no dems

Posted on 05/06/2012 4:09:01 PM PDT by Homers-odd-I-see

I've been torn between Senator Rob Portman of Ohio and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida for the GOP Vice Presidential spot. Marco Rubio was on "FOX News Sunday With Chris Wallace" today. OMG, the dude was AWESOME!!! He did not miss a step; sharp, sensible, intelligent answers to every question. I was amazed at how smart this guy is. Don't know for sure, but, you might be able to see the interview on FOX News.com

Yep, Marco Rubio is my guy for VP.

Take it easy. No need to be a drama queen (and whatever porn you are referring to). He has also made previous statements that imply his attitude towards illegal is way to the left. Besides, there is the issue of citizenship that some have raised here.

Well, at least that's not true anymore.

Rubio is a pro-amnesty, hyperambitious Bush puppet.

No thanks!

The other day there was an article in which Rubio supported the IMF,World Bank and some other entity - maybe even the UN? beacuse they didn’t promote a “narrow” American view.

Rubio stinks. I wish people knew about this.

I hired over 100,000 returning Viet Nam vets into post office department jobs.

Lots of them were college graduates who needed a job ~ that was back in 1969.

So you are a government hack bureaucrat. We are done. You will NEVER understand the free market. Working for the Post Office and bragging about it is proof.

I am totally done with you. Go lick your stamps.

BTW, send 'em back first. Then we'll talk.

I did menial jobs myself ~ worked in a UAW organized truck engine plant doing the worst jobs down in the pits you can imagine ~ shoveled grease with metal shavings ~ 25 to 50 pound loads in a bladefull and tossed 'em up in a gondola. Made my biceps bulge!

Then, the drive in theatre ~ we had a guy who drank too much did the propellor collection route though, but I've handled a high pressure steam hose going into a women's toilet ~ just blowing all that filth to the drain hole.

Finally, cooked, froze and breaded all the chicken for the New York World's Fair ~ did all the jobs which included pushing loads into the -30 freezer, and pulling the still broiling chickens out of the oven.

Menial labor? Why did I always get the part of the job where you needed to be able to read?

I think men who want jobs and who are citizens should be able to get them without waiting in line behind foreigners whose bosses dote on them. If you want those workers, go to their own countries and eploy them. Quit messing with American people's heads. Quit telling us it's for our own good, and that it's the Conservative thing to do to bring in foreign labor.

The Post Office Department was the LARGEST government organization ever eliminated in this country.

It was replaced with US Postal Service which derives its revenues from postage.

I think I know a tad more about the totality of the free market than a store clerk like yourself ~ 30,000 applications? Chump change brother, chump change.

You don’t understand. The numbers of illegal alien children are destroying public schools and placing the children of real Hispanic citizens at risk.

November 2004, Arizona voters approved Proposition 200, “Protect Arizona Now,” to prevent illegal aliens access to public benefits, required proof of citizenship before voting, and mandated that government workers turn over suspected undocumented immigrants to authorities or face jail terms and fines.

The shocker: nearly 44 percent of Hispanics voted for Proposition 200.

From Scratch?

I and about 1000 other people started the USPS ~ and it rapidly grew to 500,000 employees, and at its peak handled 7 times as much mail as the old Post Office Department, with barely more employees

And you did what?

Anyone help you ~ like a bank, an insurance agent, economists, lawyers? Tell us

Oh, OK, I was doing a search to find anything on here that ever showed up on Rush (as he says he provided ghost stuff) ~ I think he spent 15 years as a lurker picking up our stuff for Rush and others.

He's using a discussion technique much more commonly found back in the day ~ so maybe he doesn't come here as often as he claims.

Whoa there!

I binged your worry using “Rubio supports IMF World Bank”.

Here are the results:
http://www.bing.com/search?q=rubio+supports+IMF+World+Bank&form=APMCS1

I chose CNS link and read the article.

Rubio Praises U.N., World Bank, IMF for Not Asserting ‘Narrow American Interests’

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/rubio-praises-un-world-bank-imf-not-asserting-narrow-american-interests

It is not what you think.

“(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who was elected to his first term with help from the Tea Party in 2010 and who is sometimes cited as a potential GOP vice presidential pick, lauded the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for following their respective visions instead of asserting “narrow American interests” in a speech today on U.S. foreign policy.

“In remarks at the liberal Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., Rubio sketched the advances made globally since the end of World War II as a result of America’s leadership.

“That vision and will helped other nation's attain liberty, kept trade routes open, supported “the expansion of free market capitalism that accelerated the growth of the global economy,” he said, “and we did it without coveting other countries’ territories or seizing their assets or robbing them of their opportunities.”

It would behoove you to read the whole article. I just copied the portions that pertained to your points. Rubio is explaining why the US, after WW2 was the main pusher of the UN, IMF and World Bank to minimize another WW3. At that time the US believed that WW2 began because of the break down of the League of Nations. Also there was no world market for “equal opportunity” purchasers of commodities (oil, wheat, corn, rice, etc.). Japan was in search of oil, iron, etc. for its growth. Japan felt it could not purchase what it needed so it attacked nations that either prevented Japan from its goals or had natural resources. Similarly with Germany. Germany wanted the Russian oil fields, the Suez Canal etc. The US thought if all countries had access (open trade routes such as the Straight of Hormuz and the global oil market) to commodities there would be less probability of another WW. The IMF and World Bank helps with liquidity. You need some type of entities to help smooth over the vast difference between the 1st tier and the 2nd and 3rd tier countries.

Maybe those entities were useful in the past (and that is debatable) but they are currently viper pits of leftist/globalist nastiness. So if Rubio does not say (and I don’t see him say) that his praise is only for the past, then my opinion still stands. Anyone who thinks the UN is not a nasty pit of leftist vipers is insane.

Only a mind numbed feckless scaredy cat liberal like you would be a government bureaucrat, and only the most mentally ill type would look at that as a badge of honor. The same type who thinks that “FR Born date” means anything beyond when you joined FR. Wake up retarded bureaucratic gnome. There is life outside government and FR. You are a small minded left brain bureaucratic microbe wasting oxygen and tax money by your very existence.

Listen to what Rubio said during his speech at the Brookings Institute. Rubio was decimating the Left by explaining America's position in the world from a conservative POV. If you do not agree with what he said, please tell me exactly what Rubio said (not what you think he should have said, but what he said) that you do not agree with.

Now I like you despise what the UN has become. But that is because not since Jane Kirkpatrick, OK you can also include John Bolton, have we had aggressive speakers strongly advocating America's position from a conservative POV. The UN is a debating society with strong left wing leanings. If you don't have a Conservative Executive Branch the US is screwed. It also does NOT help having an arrogant left wing State Department that will not hesitate to make life difficult for a Conservative Executive Branch. Let's face it, we on the right do not have strong clear voices advocating our POV with the exceptions of Mark Levin, Sarah Palin and most of the time Allan West and Marco Rubio.

So how is it exactly, that we count those illegals again? Maybe you just made that up because voter registration is down for illegals.

It’s based on the lack of jobs available in construction and some other related trades destroyed by Obamanomics. Sort of a silver lining to the cloud of an awful economy. There have been several surveys showing it. The welfare immigrants are still here, which are the worst, along with the crooks unfortunately. But many of the job seekers have gone back.

I need clarification and remind yourself that this is a family friendly site. I don’t like Rubio, he is a one trick pony and an extremely glib talker. His immigration stance is only partly revealed but now this, he will advance the cause of “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” other wise known as amnesty.

But I agree. A more timeless FR name would have suited you much better. Unfortunately, if you change your handle, you become a brand-new n00b again.
