The LWNJs seem to be terrified of Marco Rubio, might have to give him a second look.

By all means -- do. FL GOP is throwing support behind Jeb. Dems think Rubio is a fascist jerk. His favorability rating among republicans is 3%. He definitely should be the guy.

President Rubio sounds good to me. He couldn't possibly be worse than the imbecile you voted for twice. But who could?

Marco Rubio - Latest 2014 Polls and Approval Ratings - POLITICO

An approval rating for Marco Rubio at this point is meaningless. Most people would have no idea who he is. What was Barack Obama's approval back in 2006? I'm a political junkie, and I didn't have a clue about the guy. Even in 2008 there were conservatives who had optimism about Obama. He was after all from the Univ. of Chicago, home of Milton Friedman.

Of course Kristol doesn't like him. Like his dad he isn't a Zionist tool.

Rubio is even more in the bag for amnesty than Bush. He is part of the "gang of eight" behind the failed Senate effort. I can't imagine him getting past that in the primaries.

When it comes to amnesty, the devil is in the details. Rubio proposed a tough version of amnesty in contrast to the admin's version.

Obama's Amnesty Guts State Immigration Protections | The Daily Caller

We need to find a version of amnesty that will allow an Ayded Reyes, brought to the US as an infant, and grew up to become an honor student majoring in pre-med, to remain here, while kicking out guys like this.

This is what Marco Rubio has been trying to do, and I have no doubt that Republican voters will be willing to listen to that message in the 2016 primaries.

You're being ridiculous. Obama's EO has nothing to do with it. Rubio is one of the authors of the Senate Amnesty bill. He is one of the gang of eight. He wrote the amnesty bill. His proposal was rejected outright by conservatives in the House and conservatives all across America. He is right there with McCain and the democrats in proposing a path to citizenship - aka amnesty. He has blood on his hands. If conservatives support Rubio, then they agree with the senate amnesty bill. If that is the case, then why did it not pass and let Obama give his executive order?

Agreed on both counts. We like starting these kinds of threads because we're ALL political junkies, but it's all just a fun little game right now. Way too early to nail anything or anybody down.

I remember the first time someone told me about Obamas' book The Audacity of Hope. I had never heard of Obama. I looked him up - listened to some speeches, read some quotes from his book, began to pay attention to him since he was now on my radar. Initially I was intrigued by him - young, good looking, charismatic, a motivational speaker, initially saying all the right things that provided ME with the "audacity to hope".

And then over time I listened more closely. And watched. He was most definitely not the person I was going to vote for president.
