Smearing Rubio
American Spectator, by Paul Kengor

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/26/2012 6:14:13 AM

In a recent interview, Senator Marco Rubio, the Republican front-runner for 2016, was asked, "How old do you think the Earth is?" It´s a ridiculous question of utter irrelevance to the status of the country and whether Marco Rubio would be a good president. Rubio´s answer was excellent: "I´m not a scientist, man. I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think that´s a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States.

But Republicans must learn to push back against these liberal reporters. How about "I get a little suspicious when reporters ask questions like that when the question has no relavence to the subject at hand. It indicates to me that the reporter is more interested in carrying the liberal agenda than giving the public a balance view of the problems we face. What is YOUR point?"

I think instead of having a bunch of 2:1 Liberal/Journolist-rigged debates, the presidential candidates should be forced to play the nationwide bar trivia game Showdown on Buzztime at 7 pm Central on Tuesday nights.

Would be impossible for the commys to game that, and their knee-jerk candidates would fall so flat even the Obamaphone Lady wouldn´t vote for them.

Rubio set himself up for this by giving an interview to GQ rag to begin with.Palin figured out these ambush goons a long time ago.Even though Rubio made the correct statement that the age of the earth has nothing to do with the basket case conditions in this county,that part was completely ignored.

Even though he will never be President, Newt provided an excellent example of how to kick in the teeth of these supercilious scum. When David Gregory started the session with a question about Sandra Fluke and free abortions, Newt gave him a swift sleeve across the windpipe, frankly saying he ought be ashamed of himself to bring this out as the top issue when the nation is in jeopardy. Republican candidates should just study and remember Gregory´s face for the rest of that session.

Rubio´s answer was perfect. Even we Christians have differing opinions about the age of the earth. Our opinions on this matter are irrelevant to running the country properly.

Rubio´s answer was utter nonsense. Age of earth is not a subject for theology. There is a field of study called geology, that deals with it. Even though he is not a scientist, he should at least know that the age of the earth is a scientific, not theological, subject. How can USA stay competitive and create STEM jobs with this attitude? As it is the PhDs in hard sciences go a lot to foreign born students who come to USA after learning science in their home countries.

Republicna candidates" please memorize these three sentences:

"By using the radiometric dating system on the Diablo Canyon meteorite, geologists can say the Earth is 4.54 billion years old. That means that if the United States went $3000 further in debt each year since the beginning of the world, we´d be LESS in debt than we are right now, at $16 trillion dollars. Why don´t you guys start asking us about something relevant, like the national debt?"

Republicans have to recognize that "journalists" are on the other side, and say so, clearly and emphatically, in answer to every gotcha question.

Any question about rape -- any at all -- should be answered like this... "The political party that you shill for nominated Al Gore for president in 2000, and he said that rape was merely a mistake in Clinton´s personal life that was subsequently balanced by what Gore considered to be good works. Have you asked him to explain that? Why not? Did you ask Bill Clinton or Barack Obama whether they agreed with that assessment? Why not?"

Bottom line -- you can´t win on defense. You have to go on offense.

Background...
"Uh, I think that, uh, I think that whatever mistakes he made in his personal life are in the minds of most Americans balanced against what he has done in his personal life as President." Al Gore responding to a question about Juanita Broaddrick´s credible charge of rape.

The problem isn´t just the nature of the questions, it´s also the source of the question. Republicans seem to be irresistibly attracted to liberal entertainment media (the View, Oprah, GQ, Rolling Stone, etc.) like moths to a flame. And with the same result. They seem to feel that they can appeal to the Honey BooBoos by the force of their personality. Instead, they end up ridiculed and typecast. It´s a fatally flawed strategy.

Krugman had his fun, feeling superior to Rubio, but I noted that he didn´t attempt to answer the question, ´what caused the big bang?´ Archbishop Ussher may have been wrong in dating the world´s beginning at 4004 B.C. but in his day there were other answers (´a chance collocation of atoms´) to the world´s beginning that were properly being ridiculed. Krugman should pack it in. With every column he writes he looks like a larger and larger horse´s patoot.

It´s fun to think about how terrified the left is of Sen. Rubio. If he is the 2016 GOP nominee, that means Latinos by the millions will vote for him. The fastest growing ethnic group in the USA will be in the GOP´s camp.
Who will be the minority party then?
IOW, they are already trying to smear him. Sen. Rubio needs to think very carefully about God, abortion, race relations, etc. and have answers prepared.
The left wants to Akin him.

If Michael Ramirez reads this site, I have a great idea.

Split screen Rubio press conference

Press: "How old is the earth?",
"What is x=2(y+x)X(z-a)?"
Who is Putin´s first cousin on his mother´s side?"

Split screen Obama Press Conference

Press: "What is Michelle´s favorite color?"
"What is your favorite dish at Thanksgiving?"
"How many states in the USA?"

Trust me, the same liberals would keep their atheism to themselves in the presence of muslims. Liberals are craven cowards who prey on christians because christians are soft targets.

Leftist ideological zealotry murdered more people in the last century that muslims in their entire history. They are craven, but like any sociopathic bully, they can be brutal when they can get away with it.

Having said that, anyone who uses force rather than gentle persuasion loses the moral high ground.

Love it #13 & #14! Somebody send it to Rubio and others!

I don´t know why they don´t use advice from Newt. He produced a republican House after 40 years in the wilderness.

Our candidates HAVE to engage in the liberal world. That´s where the 0bama dummies live, and they vote and breed! Our candidates need to be smart about dealing with them.

We have to accept the coarsening of the culture that 0bama has produced. The days of non-confrontational dialogue are over. 0bama has pointed fingers from before his selection, and we are idiots not to point back.

Let´s not sugar-coat things.

Marco "Azucar" Rubio is the hand-puppet of the Big Sugar Lobby - - so - - if he enthusiastically supports sugar supports - - then how can he ever vote against stealing taxpayer money to pay off the other Big Lobbies?

The guy´s a standard, big-spending, big-lobby, big influence-peddling pol - - and it´s delusional to believe anything else.

This is what I predicted would´ve happened, had Rubio been nominated VP by Romney.

The MSM were ready for an all-out assault on Rubio. Very likely they could have successfully Dan-Quayled him.

So good, now Rubio has a couple of years to learn how to deal with gotcha questions. And perhaps put on a bit of gravitas.

Sorry. They knew they had to fight fire with fire and wilted. Romney clobbered his opponents in the primaries and went soft against BO, expecially in the second debate and thereafter.

The way to combat the press is by doing some things as suggested here. But I think it should be more direct and more in your face so the gnat size brain voters could get a grasp of it too.

Such as ´you ask me that question but then you ask the opponent about his favorite flavored cake. Come back when you can be fair and balanced.´ The answeres must be very direct. Call them out on their tricks. Whatever, just don´t give answers about rape and abortion and gay anything. These are trap questions.

We need to win the next election on FLUFF. We need to get in and then address the issues. Offer fluff to the fluff people, Offer free reaganphones. I mean it.

If you think you can win the next election on the up and up, then be prepared to loose the next few elections until we get into a revolution or something like that.

Promise women all the damn free BC they want. Promise food stamps, promise the soft stuff for christsakes, then get in and address the issues.

The dems is indeed the party of mendacity and obsfuscation. Does the end justify the means. It depends on how badly you want this nation to survive. It´s time to fight fire with fire. Marco Rubio has options. Allow them to define him, or come out fighting and get in their face. He may have ideas how to get the latino vote. Support him.

There was an op-ed in the local paper yesterday that mimicked the theme of this article with the exception that the author went after Rubio for sitting on the science committee without "knowing" that the earth was 4.54 billion years old give or take 50 million years.

that he could not remember that far back.
Kindly ask about something a little more
recent, like the National Debt, or anything
that he was actually involved with. Mr Rubio
has to get TOUGH and stop playing with these

answer until he researches it further.

People like Breitbart and the O´Keefe people know how to zero in on the double standard but then nothing is done about it. Meanwhile back at the Stupid Ranch... the Republicans pine about how impt it is to be liked by the media. Would the day EVER come when Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Ann Coulter or Michelle Malkin could be the mediators in a debate or even interview the Obamas or the Clintons? So why don´t the conservatives EVER learn?? Yikes, I could throw up.

Reflecting on Kelo nine years later

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010.

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through
