    He won't get my vote, but credit where credit is due. The picture speaks for itself, he's dancing under the "O" icon_cool.gif

    He only has 6 percent recognition. Nobody knows who he is. Also, the vast majority of Republicans are incensed regarding his support for immigration. Lastly, he is going after the same funding sources as Jeb Bush. Laugh!

    I don't think he expects to win. He's looking for National recognition to tee it up for a later run. I've followed him since his rise in Florida, even worked with him on a couple of State level matters. He is consummate politician. But I don't sense any convictions. His signature legislation here was defeated by his own party and I've seen nothing on the National stage and yet he's considered a rising star. Go figure. But I guess the Republicans said that about Obama. He is kind of sexy. No gaydar bells going off, though.

    Jeb will crush him. And Rubio is giving up the Senate seat for his "run,"......me thinks he is really running for a VP nod. Otherwise he'll be unemployed and paycheck less come Wednesday, November 9, 2016.


    That party ended quickly:

    Hmm, he's young, handsome, and Latino (Latinos being the largest minority group) but that won't be enough to win the nomination.

    His immigration record is also polarizing. Oh well.

    Am I the only one that finds it utterly hilarious that if you accidentally leave off the o in "Marco Rubio" you get a porn star?

    I've seen him many times in person and I can tell you he doesn't look anything like that photo any more.
    More like a typical paunchy politician.
    Is that photo really him? Was that in his gay stripper days? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    I have to believe that this thread must be laden with sarcasm or blind people

    This guy, while certainly younger than the rest of the bunch, is definitely no looker. He is less than BASIC.

    I recently read this about Fox News. Now I know why there's a Fox News Latino.

    Fox News conning Latinos for politics and profit. AUTHOR: Mark Howard

    "Fox viewers are accustomed to stories about “illegals” swarming across the border to take up residency in the U.S. and sponge off of our prosperity. There is hardly a mention of immigrants on Fox that isn’t associated with crime, joblessness or drug cartels. Lately, however, someone at Fox News has recognized a major flaw in its strategy to demonize immigrants, particularly Latinos, who are a growing constituency of both consumers and citizens who can vote and are registering in record numbers. So how does Fox maintain its editorial animosity toward immigrants without alienating an increasingly important voter group? The answer appears to be by developing news content specifically for this demographic and sequestering it from the rest of its viewership. This has resulted in a flurry of disparaging articles on the Fox News flagship, while the same story is presented on the new Fox News Latino in a far less bigoted fashion. The pinnacle of this hypocrisy occurred during a Fox report on the election when it displayed video of illegal border crossers with a caption reading The Hispanic Vote."

    So just what is this "major flaw in [FNC's] strategy to demonize immigrants, particularly Latinos, ...?" The quote doesn't say, although it manages to conflate opposition to illegal immigration w/ opposition to immigration overall, which is a false joinder. Perhaps a side-by-side comparison of the two supposedly competing versions of the news story would be helpful; it certainly would allow people to make up their own minds, but this poorly-reasoned, half-baked, hit piece omitted even that. And no, repeating lies long enough does NOT make them truths. Summary: this article has nothing to contribute.

    Blurry? You say that as if we were out of focus. I take offense.

    We were pixel-challenged. You digitally-spoiled people are so rude!
