Posted By:JoniTx, 2/6/2013 4:10:09 PM

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) will deliver the Republican response to President Obama´s State of the Union address on February 12. Rubio´s response will be delivered in both English and Spanish, according to House Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) office. "Marco Rubio is one of our party’s most dynamic and inspiring leaders. He carries our party’s banner of freedom, opportunity and prosperity in a way few others can. His family’s story is a testament to the promise and greatness of America," Boehner said in a statement on Wednesday.

Somehow, having left this pathetic party, I´m not feeling better.

Am I alone in thinking Boy Rubio is our affirmative-action mistake? Sick, sick, sick to death of never-had-a-real-job fair-haired politicians-for-life, and this guy will be around for sixty years. Sheesh!!

Oh good! I´ll tune in for Rubio, but skip the part where I would have to look up Obama´s nostrils or have to look at the Bag Lady.

I´m with #4. Good for Rubio.

#1, the subject isn´t Christie. #2, goodbye. #3, yup, pretty much alone.

Excellent! Obama can drone on about government spending and Rubio will talk about small business, entrepreneurship and limited government.

We´ll see if The Rubester avoids Jindal´s mistakes with this assignment.

Rush overhyped Jindal endlessly.
Hannity has been flacking Rubio nonstop.
Nothing exceeds like excess.

Can the rookie beat expectations?
Stay tuned.

Let´s see... I think the speech might go something like, "i don´t like some of the things you are doing, but you are right on with helping those poor latinos who happen to be here, not because they broke any laws. They just like our country and it´s jobs, welfare, free college (for immigrants only), and we shouldn´t look down on them. They deserve to have a path to citizenship, and the current plan that I like is that they actually receive amnesty, and none will never be deported, no matter. We can easily shove this down the throats of the stupid party´s voters."

Learning that RINOs are not only politicians, but regular "republicans" too. Oh yeah - those would be the ones who continue to defend the indefensible.

#3, I´m with you. GOP chicks like to feel good about themselves --- they watch Oprah and are suckers for an exotic suit and a biography. There is nothing compelling about Rubio other than that. But he is not a white male, so he´s got that going for him. AA card allows him to cut amnesty deals with Schumer and Durbin and McCain and everyone in the GOP is expected to go along with it. I´d like to see a white guy try that. HA!

I am really get sick of all the negativity on this forum lately. I have been here for 13+ years (nearly the beginning) and can´t believe how so many people are becoming so cynical, bigoted, and just all around negative BEFORE they know anything. You remember the saying about the word "assume", don´t you?... Anyway, I think it is great Rubio is repeating his response in Spanish for all those voters who never get a chance to hear our side and whose English is limited. Say what you want, but is it too much to ask folks to try to keep somewhat of an open mind? It is starting to sound like a bunch of grouchy old people talking about their health going downhill in a retirement home.

While I would prefer a John Bolton / Ted Nuggent tag team with Ann Coulter cheer-leading.......Rubio is a very effective speaker and makes the case for Liberty very well.

Let not the perfect become the enemy of the good.

FYI, I´ve been around for those 13+ years also. You´ve probably got me beat on the number of posts. However, my comment wasn´t based on anything but FACTS.

I happen to live in CA a state that now counts WHITES (English speaking) as a Minority.

I don´t know where ´Others´ live, but rest assured you will become one of us minorities sooner than you think.

So, go ahead and feel superior in your enlightenment -- I live with that $rap every day out here.

I didn´t say a thing about WHAT he was going to say. And as far as those people that can´t speak or understand English - why is he even trying to communicate with them. How could they be citizens? If citizens, how the heck can they vote if they can´t read the freaking ballot?

Okay, blast away with your mouth wide open in astoundment and justice.

Well said #15
Just for information Hispanics are not a single race but a blend and because the USA is a melting pot of ethnic cultures Mr. Rubio with his Cuban ethnic background is mostly Causasoid ( white)so stop the racial slurs.
He is ethnic pure enough to represent his country. He was born a citizen just like most the detractors.
I personally hope that the GOP walks in mass out of the State address if Obe makes even one anti comment. Mr. Rubio then can can hammer him.

Funny how people take it personally when no one was even talking about or to them... No, I don´t think I´m superior. I just miss the days when there was not so much negativity. We used to look for solutions more than just complain. I am a native white Californian, 100% english-speaking (except the little Spanish & Swedish I learned in school) who is half Spanish in ethnicity and half Northern European too. Yes, I am a "minority" and have been all my life. But what does that have to do with Rubio giving a second speech in Spanish so others can understand what we (on the right) have to say? Nothing. Everyone should learn English, but not everyone does or they don´t always learn it well enough. BTW, my poor grandma forgot her English when she got old (and she was from Texas!). But she did learn it at one time. Hey, don´t feel bad...I still love you guys!

My choice would be Cruz. He has something special for a rookie senator. He speaks to the issues clearly, and is surefooted. and unless he is crushed by the republican leadership in the senate, he will make a major contribution to our country.
Bobby Jindal made the mistake of listening to republican operatives when he made that presentation. If hed just spoken his mind, in his own way of talking, he would have been successful.

The negativity would be because for four years we conservatives have had a finger stuck in our eye daily. We have a faux president who has no intention of proving his eligibility to serve in the office and laughs at anyone who pushes the issue. He is wrecking our country and stealing our liberties daily. We have no electeds with the spines to stand up against him and make him do what is right. Our country is going to Hell in a handcart and he is out daily on AF-1 burning up our assets and acting like he is still on the campaign trail. He robs the citizens to pay his followers and bundlers. I can´t even put to words all that he has done, is doing and will do before the next four years are up, and for some reason I expect him to have a third term. You betcha, I´m negative.

Rubio is lenient on illegal immigration. He is part of the watery element of the Republican Party. Before you know it, they´ll be having speeches in Chinese and Mohican. Step by step, America is being fragmented and dissolved.

Well, you can complain about Rubio´s stance on illegal immigration and the dearth of politicians willing to stand against Obama on principle all you want. But don´t forget - the people in Washington respond to what they perceive to be in their interest, and there are simply not enough down-the-line conservatives left around to beat back the tide. There is no longer any Silent Majority out there waiting to be heard from. So why should anyone be surprised when a guy like Rubio looks at the political terrain and tries to make the best of it?

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship.

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.
