woodsmen saidIt is unbelievable that he did not endorse a judge from his own state! Who would do this?
Senator Bill Nelson (a moderate Democrat) supported the nomination. Senator (until he is defeated in 2016) Marco Rubio, a narrow-minded conservative teabagger (the Tea Party is a subsidiary of the Republican Party, FYI), denied the nomination.
That's okay, because we are gonna deny asshat a second term....
I hope so, but seriously doubt it.
Rubio is a must win for the GOP because he's "evidence" that Republicans are not all white racists.
Billions will pour into FL to convince brain dead people that he's multicultural, but also a racist, homophobic tea bagger when he needs to be.
He can be defeated in '16. Earlier this week, the Florida Republican Party all but admitted they are writing off the Latino vote for 2014 and the 18-35 vote is gone for them too. If the trend continues, that could take away a huge block of South Florida votes that could have been for Rubio, but will go to a Democrat. Central Florida is "blue" when it comes to statewide elections and those in North Florida might vote for Rubio but will hold their nose (again) because he's not "one of them."
Yes, but you're not factoring in the awesome power of unlimited corporate advertising.
Remember Ford introduced the Pinto in 1970, and by 1972 everybody hated it. Buyers knew the Pinto was crap, and victims were getting burned to a crisp from the exploding gas tanks. But thanks to advertising, Ford kept on selling the Pinto for another 8 miserable years.
So there is hope for Rubio.
