    Slowly the name rubio is appearing in the local papers as a councilman who does wonders for the people. Then hes elected and months later he is running for another higher office and the local paper writes an article about him and his sudden rise in the repub party in florida. Months later another article he owes almost $750 K on his first large house yet a bank is loaning him almost 1 mil to buy another and hes backed by some people who are telling banks to loan him money. You and I would not get a dime.2 years hes running for florida senate and they state he will be the next president. 1 year now hes a US congress man going to be the finest president.
    Yesterday on tv he says hes not ready to be pres now maybe next time when he has more experience.

    I saw the interview, it was Neil Cavuto. He was firm in claiming that he had no immediate interest in President or VP. It was the interviewer who said he would one day be president.

    I don't know a whole lot about him but the words he spoke made COMPLETE sense to me.
    He's coming on Cavuto again right now.

    I like this young man a lot BUT I am not willing to annoint him or anyone else. I need to see substance first.

    The major problem with US politics is that the voters fall in love with an image; an idea of what they would like a particular candidate to be, delivered by slick political professionals.

    We need to chose our candidates much more carefully and vet them fully before we elect them to ANYTHING, most of all President!

    birdogs is spot on...this Rubio clown needs to serve in office for several years before doing an Obama and jumping up to take the top spot without any experience. Rand Paul wants to do the same thing as well...he wants to ditch his Congressional gig and aim for a top spot. The guy just got elected and has not done anything yet.LOL Must be the new trend these days: get elected to Congress, serve a year or two, then run for President. We will just end up with more dumbnuts in office.

    99, do some research:

    1. He's a Senator, not a Congressman.

    2. He's not running, nor has he indicated a plan to run for anything else.

    3. If wanting tax reform, entitlement reforms, immigration reform and SERIOUS budget cuts (including the Dems actually passing a budget for 2011) from the libs is your definition of a "clown" then what term would you apply to Obama???

    4. This guy makes more sense than all the rest of the Democrats put together! If he's a clown to you, the Democrats represent an entire CIRCUS!

    46: do some research

    1.) I said "Congressional", which means both Senators and House of Reps. I never said "Congressman".


    2.) Rumors start from somewhere....this notion of him running has been circulating around for a while. Only up until now did he formally went on record to tamp down any talk of him running.Why now and not before?

    3.) Talk is cheap. All of this talk about tax reform, entitlement reform, immigration reform and budget cuts was the way to pick up votes last year. The ...this guy needs to serve out his entire term in order to be properly vetted and see if he follows through. It's been only 3 friggin months and you say this guy is delivering on his promises??!! Geez, what bus did you just get off of

    4.)READ #3...Talk is cheap, let the man serve out his term and see if he follows through with his promises and sticks to his guns.

    1. Apologies on the "congressman" comment, my bad. When talking about a Senator I usually say "elected to the Senate" as I believe most people do.

    2, Don't rewrite my post for your own convenience. Read it again and tell me where I said he is "delivering on his promises."

    3. I assess candidates based on the positions they take on the issues, as well as what they do. Gus positions are solid. I don't know what method you use.

    4. AGAIN, he's not running for another office and I intend to follow his progress; but I'm not assessing him as a candidate right now since he's NOT RUNNING for one despite your seeming insistence to the contrary.

    5. The bus I got off of, as you put it, is apparently the one that YOU'RE on. Thank goodness.

    1.)Rubio utilizes the term "Congressional" to refer to both Senate and House elected officials. Taken from a speech of his:

    "The president has specifically said that Qaddafi must go but has done nothing since then except for having general debates about it for a week and a half or two,” Rubio said. “Congressional leadership has strongly called for a no-fly zone and nothing has happened.” "


    http://conservativedailynews.com/2011/03/seator-marco-rubios-weekly-newsletter/

    you need to get with the program....now the term "Congressional Representative" would informally apply to a member of the House of Represenative


    2.) I was not responding to your first post since it has little content to begin with....no surprise there....

    3.) I assess a politician on what he says AND does. So far you are assessing him on what he is saying. 3 months in office is hardly an assessment by your standards to judge whether this guy is just another politico hack. Politicians like people like yourself who believe anything they say to the voters.

    4.) Again, you are not comprehending anything stated to you...

    5.) Seeing that you do not comprehend English well and need to take ESL classes again, the bus you just got off of must had originated from south of the border. Want me to state what I just said in Espanol to you? Maybe that will help....

    I'm not going to perpetuate mudding up this thread by debating back and forth with you. It's pointless.

    You think the guy's a "clown." You're entitled to your opinion.

    I like his stated positions on the issues. I'm entitled to mine.

    We disagree. I intend to leave it at that.

    Guys, I live in south florida, same rubio, my info is from local newspaper covering him over the last few years not from cavuto. Only someone who has backers such as obama has can move politically so fast and do nothing, he is the cuban all american boy(man)to be prez, bought and paid for. Lee

    Lets see here, Obummer is a bonafide socialist and Rubio is a bonafide conservative who beat a RINO to win his Senate seat. They are as similar as a dog is to a cat. Conclusion: somebody has been sniffing glue.

    I again admit I have seen him speak only a few times but he seems to be dead on with my conservative views on the issues.

    Maybe you anti-Rubio's on this thread can help me better understand by adding something of substance?

    What positions does he have on the issues do you disagree with and why? I'm interested in knowing if you're making broad allegations only because you may be a Democrat? Has he done something illegal in Florida that I don't know about?

    Feedback appreciated.

    The "Real American Patriot" Dictionary states the meaning of an Obama Liberal Is: One life form that is lowest of the lowest not being human, but a form of cancer like cell that wants to take on real life form to gain control. Hence, a Liberal has NO opinion and what they say has no substance. Therefore, will be destroyed by a higher form of life like REAL humans with REAL brains that can think rationally! Read'um and Weep libs your demise is coming due to the strength and resolve of REAL AMERICANS! Signed:Richard

    You lost any credibility with this statement Slic. Obama vs Rubio and you see them as one in the same? You ever do any research on Hussein? A socialist vs a conservative. Rubio votes yes or no and with conviction not present. Rubio actually has a conservative record while your socialist Hussein has a marxist record yet you see them a s one in the same. Just not a smart statement at all.

    Rubio needs to spend some time as a Senator and get his "wings" before being pushed to fly for the presidency. The guy has been in office for 3 months. Let him serve his term and see if he follows through with his campaign promises. He talks the talk, but he hasn't walked the walk. Just words coming out his mouth. Rand Paul is another one to chastise. The guy has been in office for 3 months and is already planning for a potential presidential run.

    Additionally, I hope the Tea Party is not pushing Rubio to be president because they want to pull a race card of their own against Obama. Rubio will NOT receive the Hispanic vote. He is Cuban, and he won't get much of the Hispanic vote. Mexicans hate Cubans. Puerto Ricans hate Cubans. In general, Latin Americans hate Cubans...I hope folks know this....
