Rubio makes his Iowa
debut as possible ‘future’
of the Republican Party

Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Alexis Levinson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/18/2012 11:33:45 AM

ALTOONA, Iowa –As the Republican Party regroups after Mitt Romney’s defeat, the message Saturday night at Iowa Republican Gov. Terry Branstad’s birthday fundraiser was “turn the page” and “look to the future” — and what that future apparently holds is Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, the event’s featured speaker. Rubio was invited to speak at the event around Sept. 1, Branstad told The Daily Caller, and had Romney won, the atmosphere might have been a bit different. But only 11 days after voters went to the polls and Republicans came up short, Rubio was speaking to a crowd that

I understand that the RNC is already searching for the perfect candidate...black, Hispanic, gay female who can quote Ronald Reagan line for line.

Rubio didn´t deliver Florida. Someone leaked the Romney conference call, And I am looking for a new face.

Would Rubio be as Hispanic promoting in the White House as obama and Holder?

Better get the House to start building that border fence. Romney´s self-deportation idea just might gain steam as we all get poorer and colder and hungrier.

I liked Rubio, until he opened his mouth the day after we lost this country and started babbling about how to "reach out" to hispanics.

"Reaching out" only means one thing to "latinos", amnesty. Let them all stay, and let their families still over the border come too, because, you can´t break up families!

More crushing weight as low-end workers and the poor dig into our available tax revenues, have more kids, and vote for more people to come over.

Rubio doesn´t get that disaster coming on top of all of our other disasters. Why? Because he is hispanic. And what does that make him? Well to me, someone that puts a race above his country is a racist.

And I am also tired of any value Iowa, Ohio, or any other state has in the play for elections. Sick and tired of hearing about:

* Swing States in general
* Ohio, Iowa, Florida
* "Reaching out"
* The "woman vote"
* Karl Rove
* Dick Morris

Have I missed anything?

What #6 said. Shame on Rubio. Another future-great-hope of the GOP bites the dust. Rubio turned out to be someone who back-stabs other Republicans to get cheap publicity and coverage from demonrats who agree with him. We have more than enough GOP-bashers in the "msm" without growing our own.. No thanks..

I share roots with Rubio. But that´s about it. I feel more Americanized than him,even though I came to this country some years ago. All the time in California.I enjoy the diversity of California and if I´d run for office (never),I´ll try to be as inclusive as I can be. No Latino labels,no Hispanic identity and no speeches in other language than English! That said, Marcos Rubio is another tool of the globalists to flood the country with 3rd world people.

I think Rubio is a good candidate (and YES, Marco is an American Citizen can run for President). YES, he will bring along the Hispanic vote. Have you noticed how badly we LOST because of Hispanics. YES, Hispanics will continue to grow up and have more babies meaning MORE votes against White candidates. Add that to the Black votes and guess what. White Candidates don´t have a Snowball´s chance in Hell of winning a Presidential election anytime soon. It WILL be necessary to run a candidate that Hispanics will vote for. It´s our only chance. Read the Stats from this election. It´s proof that we can´t ignore Hispanics, like it or not.

We have no idea where our country will be in a month or two let alone in four years. Or what will have become of The Won during that period.

Wrong #22, yes, Rubio is an american citizen.
He is a native born citizen.
The Constitution specifies the pres & vp must be ´natural born citizens´. There is a difference.

that means the anchor babies are not qualified to run for pres or vp but other offices are ok

Rubio lost me when he joined McCain and Graham in supporting Hillary´s and O´s unauthorized "NATO" war in Libya. The back of the hand to Romney--and tacit support of the Dems´ amnesty-- solidifies it. Rubi-NO. Jindal stepped in it too, and Huckabee last night spanked Mitt while inflating himself as a man of the folks. Double yuk. Rudy Guiliani worked hard for Romney and I have not heard him join the recriminators. We need more stand up guys like that.

I don´t think Rubio will do any better than romney.. Romney should have won easily 1980´s style. He didn´t because we now have more stupid people than smart people voting. We now have more people who have government jobs or some kind of government assistance than people who work in the private sector. Ted Kennedy´s plan since 1965 to stack the deck with welfare types has worked. It was probably evident in 08 but now 2012 confirms it. I don´t have a good feeling about our country.

I´ve been out of the loop since the election, in retreat, and am distressed to read about the issues with Rubio - though perhaps it´s just as well given the persistent eligibility issue. It´s too bad so many people could not accept Giuliani in 2008 (as urged by myself under the name "Bliss", The Mother Co., and others here). He would have been the strongest candidate then, and in 2012; and now it´s too late. As for Christy? No matter how obnoxious - if he can beat Obama? - I´m in.

With the courts gone, the moral meltdown proceeding apace and more than half the country dependent on government programs, will it matter one whit which sacrificial lamb the Republicans offer up in 2016?

Citizen born in the US equals natural born citizen. Citizen born somewhere else to non-citizen parents equals naturalized citizen. Rubio is natural born. Aside from that basic requirement, I am not sure how he is qualified to be President other than having Cuban heritage. I hope the Republicans don´t fall into the identity politics trap.

Take your money and run. We are learning that winning a caucus in the middle of February in Iowa is indicative of your ability to get people to show up on a Tuesday night in February in Iowa, and not much more.
Let´s stop pretending that caucuses in general, and Iowa in particular, gauge a candidates ability to win an election.

10 Possible Hillary 2016 Challengers

With Hillary Clinton already locking up massive amounts of cash for a presumptive 2016 presidential run, members of the hard left may be looking for an alternative. Many Democrats remain uninspired by Clinton’s progressive record – her most leftist period came during her early days as First Lady, and resulted in part in a 1994 Republican Congressional landslide – and have urged other candidates to jump into the race to provide a boost for a further-left agenda. Polls show Clinton defeating all comers in potential primary matchups. But polls also show that her appeal stems largely from her status as

XI’AN, China — Michelle Obama stopped down for five hours for a purely touristic visit, giving her and her family a view of China’s ancient history. The city is the terminus of the legendary Silk Road, a series of trade routes that linked the East and West throughout history, and is also home to the Terra Cotta Army. The massive clay sculptures were discovered in the spring of 1974 in the eastern suburbs of the city by farmers digging a well near the grave of China’s first emperor, Qinshihuang.

It was standing-room-only at Stockyard Station´s Stampede Room, with friends, family, the grassroots, and Senator Ted Cruz by her side. Breitbart Texas previously reported that Burton is the favored conservative in the Senate District that includes Fort Worth, Arlington, Mansfield, Colleyville and other areas of south and northeast Tarrant County. Tarrant County is one of the few urban conservative strongholds in the nation and it is the district currently represented by liberal state senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth).

The U.S. and its allies announced Monday that they would, for now, exclude Russia from the G8 and boycott a planned summit in Sochi in retaliation over its Crimea takeover -- though Russia´s government shrugged off the latest efforts to isolate the country.

Karzai´s office released a statement over the weekend saying Afghanistan "respects the free will of the people of Crimea to decide about their own future." The statement said "we respect the decision the people of Crimea took through a recent referendum that considers Crimea as part of the Russian Federation."

As Democrats around the country continue to tout their "fix it, don´t end it" mentality about how to deal with the ongoing disaster of Obamacare, they seem to be forgetting who´s paying for the promotion of President Obama´s signature achievement: taxpayers. So far, the Obama administration has wracked up a tremendous bill in promotional and advertising costs for Obamacare. The results? A paltry number of Obamacare signups as the March 31 deadline for enrollment quickly approaches. Let´s take a look at the numbers: -Overall cost of The Affordable Care Act Legislation (Obamacare): $2.6 trillion and counting. From the Weekly Standard:

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep.

"Never in my lifetime have I seen a law that is helping so many people be so vilified," Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) told a conference call on Friday. She talked about the millions of people in her state who are benefiting from the law that Republicans have tried to repeal 54 times. "This is a huge success, this law. I´m saying that.

As President Obama prepares to visit Saudi Arabia on Friday, many in the Middle East are wondering why he is making a trip with no discernible purpose. No one is quite sure what Obama is supposed to do while in Riyadh. According to the White House, in addition to a one-on-one talk with 90-year-old Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz, Obama hopes to attend a summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council. But there may be no summit — since the GCC is now badly split. The council’s members are Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar. One bloc — the

The Tomahawk missile program—known as “the world’s most advanced cruise missile”—is set to be cut by $128 million under Obama’s fiscal year 2015 budget proposal and completely eliminated by fiscal year 2016, according to budget documents released by the Navy. In addition to the monetary cuts to the program, the number of actual Tomahawk missiles acquired by the United States would drop significantly—from 196 last year to just 100 in 2015. The number
