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.

Kindly ask about something a little more
recent, like the National Debt, or anything
that he was actually involved with. Mr Rubio

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.

Holder said. “What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?

Obamacare´s Medicaid Trap

The technology behind a huge part of Obamacare´s efforts to expand insurance coverage—the part aimed at low-income Americans—remains far from fixed, and the glitches are keeping some of the nation´s most vulnerable patients from getting insured. The administration launched a "tech surge" to improve the HealthCare.gov experience for those shopping for private insurance, but the website´s process for enrolling in Medicaid remained mired in glitches. And for President Obama´s efforts to expand health coverage that´s a major problem. To reach would-be Medicaid recipients, the Affordable Care Act relies on potential enrollees being able to effectively navigate the law´s website to enroll. And

John Kerry, our secretary of state, is very angry with Israel. “Poof,” he said on Tuesday — describing how Israel destroyed his “peace process” the other week. Just like that. The first thing to say is that if a peace process can go “poof,” it can’t have been much of a peace process. Any serious discussion in which two parties are motivated to reach a negotiated arrangement wouldn’t be susceptible to going up in smoke all at once. That would indicate it never had any form or substance to begin with. And how on earth was it Israel who made

Congress´s investigation into IRS political targeting accelerated Wednesday, with a referral for the criminal prosecution of a former Treasury official and new evidence to back it up. In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp recommends the Justice Department proceed on three probable criminal actions taken by former director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. The letter, which was endorsed in a party-line Ways and Means vote Wednesday morning, discloses new evidence suggesting that Ms. Lerner used her position to single out conservative groups for scrutiny not applied to left-leaning groups.

Some people can’t take “no” for an answer. Often that’s an admirable quality. But when you are a witness at the center of a congressional investigation, and the “no” reflects the House Oversight Committee’s decision not to accept your refusal to testify, then it’s not quite so simple. And that is where Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official at the center of the IRS scandal, now finds herself. Lerner’s case is by now well known. From 2006 to 2013, she was the IRS’s Director of Exempt Organizations, vested with power to decide which nonprofit organizations receive tax-exempt status, which

What a miserable old blister Henry Aaron has become. In connection with the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Aaron breaking Babe Ruth’s lifetime home run record, he told USA Today that Republicans and conservatives who oppose Barrack Obama and his policies are racists, little better than ku kluxers. A sample: “Sure this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all the Republicans with the way he’s treated…back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.” Charming. In the

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
