George Will: GOP’s election
night winner was Marco Rubio

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Vastrightwingconspirator, 11/7/2012 3:13:39 AM

Finding a silver lining for Republicans in Tuesday night’s presidential election loss might seem like a tall order. But if there is one,Washington Post columnist George Will said, it will be the inevitable rise of Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Following ABC’s declaration of President Barack Obama’s re-election, Will explained that the GOP will look to Rubio to lead the party and expand its demographic appeal. Obama “did close with a kick and both sides fought a gallant fight,” Will said. “Mitt Romney had a problem — I think Nicole [Wallace], you were talking about.

Enough already, so Rubio will be the savior of the GOP because of his ethnic background? Who will be the savior of the country now that over half vote for more entitlement spending and punishment for those who have worked hard that are considered the evil rich?

I do think Rubio is a special person. He is a deeply faithful Christian & can re-position the party as the home for people of faith...

No one was able to stop the MSM from labelling the GOP as the 1%, racist homophobic selfish pigs who hate women.

Christianity crosses all racial, sex & age boundaries. A Rubio could define us.

Our platform needs to be narrowed down & clearly defined by US not the MSM/Progressives.

Either we believe in the Constitution or we don't. Why are so many talking Rubio up like he walks on water? He's not a natural born citizens and, therefore, is not elgible to run for president. The same goes for Bobby Jindal. Both men are strong leaders and have a lot to offer the country, but neither are natural born citizens. Yet, our side keeps running them up the flagpole. I don't get it!

Rubio might help the GOP with the Latino demographic, but how is the GOP going to recapture thE rest of us who held their nose for the last time? Rubio isn't going to do it...

The GOP is still going to be led by the same brilliant engineers who gave us McCain and then Mitt the Electable. We'll still be stuck with Boehner as Speaker, who'll now roll over and over to let Obama do want he wants, and Harry Reid in the Senate, eating Mitch mconnel for lunch each day.

The only winners ast night were the Unions, the Insurance Companies, and are enemies hear and abroad.

I don't think Rubio's the answer, even if having an hispanic presidential candidate would broaden the GOP's appeal to hispanics. Here's why: Romney lost, bigtime, among non-Cuban Hispanics. Look at Orlando: in 2012, non-Cuban hispanics turned Orlando area to Obama. The hispanic demo is baby-booming, and the GOP's ethic of strict enforcement of enforcing immigration law is a non-starter for them.

Romney got every white vote he could. Where do we go from here?

#8, neither Rubio's nor Jindal's parents were citizens at time of their birth, thus they fail on NBC. Not that it matters anymore with the reelected occupant of the WH, who is either half-Kenyan or of illegitmate birth.

Rubio is inexperienced at the executive level and will not be running from the Senate. I predict Linebacker Moochelle will be running in 2016, just like wives succeed husbands in Peronist Argentina.

In 4 years this country will be in such a mess, no Republican will want the job.

Lots of things don't make sense today. How can we have such a horrible 2012 when 2010 was so successful? Was it like with Clinton, the Republican congress saved him from himself? Not exactly - I think we have too many that want free stuff. It is that simple - and totally frightening.

I am sickened today and probably will be for a very long time. No silver lining in sight.

Will, shut up. You've been ConservativeLite for some time now. Rubio's solution for Conservatives was to "reach out" to minorities more, you know, with free stuff! And people like you don't even begin to realize how racist remarks like that really are. Because, you know, unless you pander to those "other races", you don't win.

Rubio would be a nightmare as a president, that is becoming clear.

#18 -- While I absolutely despise Nicole Wallace and have little to no use for George Will...we have to do two thins SIMULTANEOUSLY...market/share our conservative message AND get that message into "identify politics," i.e., the "white vote" is shrinking and the Hispanic vote, (and other ethnic groups) is expanding. If we don't actively go after our group with our message, we concede them and we'll never win another national election.

And, of course, there's the ongoing problem of the leftist mainstream press, which I maintain has actually grown in power and consolidated it's point of view, and then there's the unions. Put all of this together and it's a very steep hill to climb.

XXIII, buy some bandwidth for the hostess and not that the professional Romney enthusiasts, cheerleaders and syncophants have stopped ringing bells,stopped looking to the western sky and gradually stop questioning the motivations of those who viewed a rockefeller-Bush-Ford-Weld blue blood liberal with suspicion.

There were doors to knock, phones to call, hemingway short stories to puff.

But at least we weren't brainwashed.

Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. … Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, ‘if you

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."

Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching.

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. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
