Not envy so much as hate.Rubio is a bad idea for the GOP.
But they cannot see it because, they only see Spanish speaking Americans, and figure they are all the same. Kinda the same way the feel about inner city black folk.
Rubio will back fire for the GOP.
He is not impressive first of all, second of all Cuban is NOT the same as hispanic.
Even if Rubio would carry Miami in an election, he couldn't even win FL.

Oh, I think I wet myself a little.

Rubio is getting exposure now because
the GOP has no intention of running
him in 2016. Rubio is just too
stupid and inexperienced to know they
are using him to portray themselves
as friendly to Hispanics and Latinos
so they can start winning elections again.

It would be funny if it weren't so pathetic.

I'm so thirsty does anyone have a bottle
of Poland bottled water? Anyone?

God I could watch that video 1,000 times.
What a moron this guy Rubio is. I don't even
know how he became a US Senator. He's not even
good looking and he's dumb as a stump.

Wow. Pssst....you DO know that when you go around bragging about yourself at the expense of others, it just makes you look like the one who envies everyone BUT yourself? I can see why. You don't have a lot going on in the little head of yours.

Cubans are not Hispanics? ROFLMAO, let me ask you, what is an Hispanic? Who are the true Hispanics? I'll teach you something most of you don't even realize. To be Hispanic you're ancestors must have been from Spain or you're not considered a true Hispanic. Do you get the picture now.

Why should I envy your kind; shit, If I did I then would have to be a speck more darker skin than you, in no way can I see myself envying your kind while it's always been the opposite and you know it to be true for many reasons. Que viva la raza blanca.

Didn't you know that most of what hate evolves from envying others for their success and for being different than most, if you get the drift.

ROFLMAO, ha ha ha ha ha hah ahahaha. Poor bastards, they are just too complexed minded to figure anything out of what it is to be an Caucasian Hispanic, ha ha ha ha a ha. These brown turds think that Rubio is too stupid to be President, Rubio is only 41 years of age and he's done more and his speaches have indulged long time speech professors to like Rubio, the guy is brilliant in anyway you see it, he will eat up Obama in any speech conference, and that's a fact. The Dems, liberals, fascist commies, Gays, you name it, who ever fears Rubio will keep trying to bring him down.

There is no way in hell Republicans will vote for an anchor baby. We like our Presidents to be several generation Americans. Rubio is the son of illegal aliens.

I don't believe Rubio is "too stupid" not to be aware of the partisan rebranding, freframing, retoning, etc. that the republicants need to do to show that they are friendly to others over and above their old white skinned brothers.

Mr. Rubio has four years to prove that he is more than the token for that reframing of the Little white republicant tent.

Well said. I doubt that changing the Repub party will go as quickly as abandoning the values and standards of the Democratic Party went as it was Cali-Fornicated into the Pelosi's Gang of America's Enemies Within! You have to give Pelosi credit. That transition was at lighening speed. No one could have anticipated that so many White Democrats would have abandoned their hopes and dreams for their own children in support of the transition. Yikes.

I doubt that Repubs will ever be elected again. Baby Boomers didn't raise our kids to have any pride in the Country or concern for anyone but themselves.
Most all will be easy marks for the Pelosians and Obamites.

Yes I get it, but are you agreeing with me or disagreeing with me?
Do you think Rubio is going to come off as an ally to most Hispanic American voters, or will he come off more as a Cubano dickhead?
The point is the GOP does not even realize such a thing exists because if you speak spanish, you vote democrat, and they beleive they have "one of your own" to make you see how great the GOP is and vote blindly for Rubio.

I'm more of a beleif that is the GOP really understood the Hispanic vote they would maybe gravitate more towards a southwestern 3rd or 4th generation Mexican American, not a Cubano who might be able to deliver them Miami, but probably not even pull that off.
And lastly, Rubio is not very impressive. He does not have a commanding personality, or great presence, nor has he made anything good happen for FL or the GOP. He's basically just been Rick Scott's bitch.
He's just a GOP token. And most people hispanic or otherwise are going to figure that out quickly. He will vanish long before 2016.
He's a bad choice for the all wrong reasons, plain and simple.
