Repugs ignore the "BREAK WITH PARTY" part of the headline and story.

This way they can act like Rubio is going against Dems, and not practically every other repub in the Senate.

Looks like New Jersey's governor (Christie) may run on the Dem ticket.

Rubio is such a con artist that he couldn't even budget his own money and getting into the senate saved not only his failed butt but got health care for his family.

He is a walking lie who is nothing like he now portrays but than again you think Sarah Palin is smart.

Teabaggers usually tap them for the keynote speakers at their convention.

Mitt Romney chose Paul Ryan for his running mate, but he's making sure to find major convention roles for the other short-listers.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, two of Romney's rumored top choices for the job, will have prominent speaking roles at this year's Republican National Convention. Christie has been awarded the coveted keynote address, while Rubio will introduce Romney on the closing night, sources told Fox News.

Republicans formally announced Tuesday morning that Christie, who considered a 2012 presidential bid of his own before endorsing Romney, would speak in the prime slot in Tampa later this month.

THEN.........they EAT them.

Eventually S&*t will hit the fan. actually I dont think we will have a Revolition per see. I believe we will have a world wide Finiancial , monetery ,economic collapse. The USA goverment is fast tracking toward making us like greece. When the whole world ecomomy fails. We will have civil unrest riots and martial law. That will lead to civil war that will quickly turn into race war & ethnic cleansing. and it wont just be one isolated country in africa. it will be world wide. The USA wont be immune this go around.

What facts ARE you looking for, just out of curiousity? What facts do you have to offer?

I would take NJ Christie any day over Rubio. NOTHING that crawls out of Miami Cuban politics should ever get higher office.

The corruption here is beyond words and little Rubio has always turned a blind eye to it. He has enabled it.

I would vote for the actual NY MAFIA over these self serving Cuban flunkies and I am Cuban.

Hell, Rubio's best friend and business partner , Davis Rivera speaks volumes about Rubio's complete lack of ethics..

As you know little Rubio actually did robo calls for Rivera last election and all this while the FBI was investigating him.

Than again by Miami Cuban political standards which are zero, David Rivera isn't to bad .

"The Miami Republican remains under investigation for failing to report income from a consulting firm connected to his family for work related to a pro-slots campaign. In April 2012, state investigators concluded that Rep. Rivera had used campaign funds to pay personal expenses and reward companies connected to his friends and family, among other violations."

Agreed.

He is slime, crimminal slime.

Rubio charged more than $100,000 to his GOP credit card during his two years as House speaker for expenses including grocery bills and plane tickets for his wife. Rubio released a statement saying that his expenses were for "legitimate political purposes."

"When I made personal charges, I paid for them directly to American Express," the statement said. "I have not been contacted and don't know anything about any potential inquiries, but I welcome the chance to set the record straight once and for all."

On January 5, newly elected U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was sworn into office in Washington D.C. But the former speaker of the Florida House of Representatives has some unfinished business back home.

Rubio–as well as other state GOP lawmakers and party contributors–are currently the likely subjects of multiple wide-ranging state and federal investigations conducted by the FBI and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) into improper use of credit cards issued by the Republican Party of Florida, as well as tax evasion and improper budgetary appropriations.

Some of the legislative actions reportedly being investigated by federal authorities are those that led to the development of the state’s largest private prison, the Blackwater River Correctional Facility (CF), which opened its gates for operation in November 2010. The prison was designed and is operated by Florida-based Geo Group, the nation’s second-largest private prison operator.

Naturally teabaggers want this crook for president.

<quoted text>It was hardly a suprise, and certainly not a secret that the payroll tax reduction was only temporary.

Social security is already running deficits, so it's just stupid to continue that tax cut.

People will have to decide between a lower payroll tax deduction or a lower benefit when they retire.
Can you point that out to us in Obama's speeches. He said only the top two percent would go up period.

He was talking about federal income taxe rates, not the social security payroll tax.

There's a SLIGHT difference between FICA and the Federal Income Tax, you blithering buffoon.

Hope you don't mind me "pointing that out" to you...:)

If only Obama would have in his speeches, but since you have them on tape, maybe you can tell is which speech he clarified that in.

Obama Derangement Syndrome strikes again.

I don't have to tell you anything. YOU need to apologize for stupidly confusing FICA with federal income tax. Obama didn't do that - YOU did.

Now apologize, failure.
