Van Jones Warns Dems
About ‘Dangerous’ Marco
Rubio: He Is ‘To The Heart
What Paul Ryan Is To The Head’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Former White House Advisor Van Jones warned his fellow Democrats on Wednesday not to laugh too hard at Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) water drinking moment during his Republican response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. Jones warned that Rubio is “dangerous” for Democrats because of his ability to connect emotionally with his audience. “I think people can chuckle today – they’re going to be worried about him tomorrow,” Jones said. New York Times columnist Ross Douthat said on CNN Tuesday that, regardless of how Rubio’s water drinking moment may overshadow his address, the Republican Party wants to

There is no one serving in the Senate or the House that I would support or vote for if they ran for President, including Mr. Rubio. Too many of the idiots who have broken it still are serving in DC, and I don´t trust any of them to be able to fix it (as they prove daily).

The left has their demonization starting way too early.

I´m not sold yet, and it is too soon to back one single person yet anyway, but it´s obvious the left thinks they need to destroy Rubio now. Marco Rubio does have that certain something that tells you he means what he says, and he uses some real terms to describe things, so unlike the doublespeak gobbledygook that runs out of most politicans´ mouths.

Besides the water moment, I thought his constant hand motions were a little distracting. I don´t know what else I would have him do, but I thought that was a little too much. Overall, I thought he did a good job.

What is wrong with you people? Here is a man speaking from his heart with real solutions. He wants to cut spending, he wants to reduce the deficit, he has a clear message, and all you guys can talk about is his "water moment" and his hand gestures. With people like you having the vote, we are surely doomed.

So Van Jones is admitting Paul Ryan is smart? Amazing.

All these new "superstars" are under a lot of pressure to appeal to everyone -- the establishment as well as the base -- and I guess that´s necessary in this over-politicized world.

The problem is, we aren´t going to win an election the Dems don´t want us to win again until the Republicans can reverse the devil´s pact they made that makes it illegal for them to accuse Dems of election fraud. So appeal is pointless. The Dems have the theft option in their back pocket and they have no incentive not to use it.

I have a vote, and it will not be cast for anyone that is pushing for amnesty for illegal aliens who broke our
laws to be in this country.

In my opinion, anyone who is FOR amnesty for illegals, does not have the best interests of this country or its citizens, at heart.

The amnesty that the gang of eight (that senator Rubio is a member of) is working on pushing down our throats, will, on the first day it is enacted, effectively provide amnesty for all illegals in this country, and BEFORE any upgrades to our border security take place.

That doesn´t sound like a very patriotic thing to do. It sounds like a dem thing to do, since dems get the hispanic vote overwhelmingly, and will continue to get that vote overwhelmingly.

So, what is it? Naive? Stupid? Call it what you will, but this guy is NOT a conservative. He is a pure bred, dyed in the wool, compromiser with the left, with no room for sticking to principles.

Some seem to be in favor of deporting teenagers who have never spent enough time in Mexico to even learn the language. I don´t think that is decent. As to deporting the other 12 million, that is impractical. A cunundrum. I will wait to see what is proposed before judgement.

#4 - it is not the voters. It is the candidates. If candidates turn off voters enough that they don´t vote, then shame on them. until the Republican party gets it through their thick skulls that it is NOT THE FAULT OF THE VOTERS, they are destined for Groundhog Day over and over again.

Our government has made the problem of illegals a problem for all of us. The solution is to no perpetuate what has already been done. It is unfortunate if there are children here who have been made rogue by their parents. There is already a path to citizenship for these people. It is called go back to where you came from, and get in line with the 1,000,000´s of people willing to be here legally.

As far as I´m concerned, anyone who supports amnesty for the lawbreakers, is not representing my or my countries best interests. It can´t start to be solved until you tighten the border, and eliminate the incentives to break our laws. Will we catch and deport all. Of course not. But we can make it harder to stay, and incent self-deportation. Or do we just every 30 or 40 years grant amnesty to the masses who have managed to avoid be caught breaking our laws.

We are either a nation of laws, or we´re not. It´s time the legal taxpayers here start having our represenatives represent us, not illegals.

In other words, statist guru VanJones is sending out the message to the dems´ media/alphabets/hollyweird and leftist radicals everywhere to use their usual shtic against Sen. Rubio in order to marginalize his voice and bring him down politically just as they have done so many times in the past against merited Republicans. ...Sarah Palin comes to mind.

That VJ message apparently got around quickly as evidenced by the flack they are already making about Sen. Rubio´s dring of water during his speech last night.

I am sick about people lying about Rubio. He does NOT support "amnesty". He does think that there needs to be a fair way for children who were brought here by their parents very young (through no fault of their own) and who have NEVER KNOWN any other culture but ours to legally find a path to citizenship. It is stupid to expect someone who has never lived anywhere but here (except maybe the first year of their life--which I am sure they were totally unaware of) to go "back to their native country" in order to apply to come back here. That would be like essentially dropping someone off into some unknown foreign land and telling them to find their way back.

A pair of gunmen shot six people at a West Side party early Saturday morning - one opened fire toward a back porch from an alley while someone else opened fire from the front door as party goers tried to run inside. The first to open fire was an unknown gunman from the alley, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said. People running back into the apartment building from the back porch were confronted by a man at the front door who also opened fire, he said. One of the six, a 24-year-old man, died from a head wound

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin served up some down-home Alaska charm — and a platter of moose hot dogs and bear-meat chili — on her new reality TV show, “Amazing America.” Hosting a television show is nothing new for the former governor, who began her career as a sportscaster for an Anchorage-area TV station and later hosted “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on TLC. She promises the new show, which premiered Thursday, will be “unscripted, uncensored, unchained.” One thing’s certain: Palin is straight shooter — literally and figuratively. “I tell my kids, ‘Yes, we eat organic, we just have to go

Problems getting judges confirmed by the Senate have been a constant complaint for this White House — but this week, President Barack Obama’s aides are celebrating a confirmation count that outpaces President George W. Bush’s. They’ve had that goal on their minds for over a year, ever since chief of staff Denis McDonough and counsel Kathy Ruemmler reprioritized judicial nominations for Obama’s second term. John Owens, confirmed Monday to the Ninth Circuit, along with Edward Smith and Gerald McHugh, who confirmed to the district court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania last week, put them over the top.

She may have done some real damage. President Obama still has a little less than 3 years and sow she’s saying he now owns the rest of his term. There are still millions of people unemployed, and Obamacare’s delays will eventually kick in, making things worse. And Lord knows

   

 



 
The Part Time President’s Part Time Jobs

“Hooray, hooray”! they said in print. 192,000 jobs were created last month according to the Department of Labor’s somewhat flawed mathematics that the media is eager to ignore. Because hidden inside that job gain is another disheartening sign for the workforce: the number of workers who could only find part-time jobs rose by 225,000. Leading the field in job creation, not surprisingly, was education and health services with 34,000 jobs—thank you Obamacare-- the retail trade with about 22,000 jobs—thank you Obamacare-- and temporary workers with 28,500 jobs —thank you Obamacare. So the good news is that if you’re independently wealthy

Reid Chief of Staff Was a Comcast VP

Democratic members of Congress and the Obama administration have extensive ties to Comcast and Time-Warner, the two cable giants currently awaiting approval from the Federal Communications Commission on a $45 billion merger. One that has gone mostly overlooked: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D., Nev.) chief of staff, David Krone, is Comcast’s former senior vice president for corporate affairs. Krone moved from Comcast to Reid’s office in 2011 under ethically questionable circumstances, TalkingPointsMemo reported at the time: Majority Leader Harry Reid’s chief of staff, David Krone, left a highly lucrative gig at Comcast before working for the Senator.

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there
