Senator Cruz is a far, far more adept demagogue than that amateur, Senator Rubio.

But Rubio strikes me as the much clearer closet case.

Oh, and who really cares what Rubio says about these things, except as an accelerant for mockery, laughter and pity of Rubio?

So you're saying Rubio is gay just like you? Is that bad? Tell us about it.

You wonder because you're very sick.

There's no indication the person is a closet case as you are.

You're just sick is all. Real trash.

Rubio Schmoobio ;o)

Michelle Obama will serve as Presidentress thru 2024 so she won't have to pack up and move out of the White House for ten more years
.
Her husband can take control of the organic turnip green patch on the White House lawn on his days off from being President of the United Nations

Rubio always looks like he's trying too hard. He comes across as fake.
Interesting arrangement

Well, when you put it that way, probably would prefer that arrangement to another long, drawn out, mudslinging political season full of fake outrage and fake fear tactics.

And I love turnip greens.

By the way, the only plus for Rubio is that he is bilingual. Other than that, he is just another fella trying to pander and get in with a GOP base with money to further his career.

Half expect him to turn tail and go in the other direction if somebody with enough money and influence makes an offer. But the GOP needs a "Latino" so badley they will do anything to keep him on their side.

He just does not come across very genuine, but then again, who does in politics?

By the time it is all over, I am burned-out.

I would never compare this POS to President Reagan. While President Reagan was not perfect(no president is), he was lied to in order to get amnesty passed. President Reagan thought he was trading a small amnesty for workplace enforcement and increased border security. After it was passed the special interests worked at killing enforcement in the workplace,The US Chamber Of Commerce and large agriculture corporations lobbied Congress into backing off enforcement.

Reagan did many things that made him a RINO. Not just the amnesty of illegals. There is no way he could win the Republican nomination today, that's my point.

Raised taxes, cut and ran, raised the debt ceiling,compromised with Democrats, expanded government, supported the earned income tax credit for working people,negotiated with terrorists, tripled the national debt, signed abortion rights law in California as governor, tried to eliminate nuclear weapons. Would you vote for this guy if you took Reagan's name away? I think not.

Yes,I would vote for him and here's why. As for the " Therapeutic Abortion Act" Gov.Reagan signed,he stated that had he been more experienced as Governor,it would have not been signed. After he recognized the consequences of the bill,he announced that he was pro life and maintained that position later in his political career. Let's look at the good things he did during his Presidency. Ending the cold war by being relentless by pushing his strategic defense initiative and giving aid to rebels battling soviet-backed marxists from Nicaragua to Angola. Those efforts were critical in the ultimate collapse of the soviet empire. Peace through strength. The mlitary was diminished during the carter years,Reagan reversed that by rebuilding the armed forces. He increased defense spending by more than 40% and increased troop levels. Those efforts ensured that America remained a military superpower(yes,that's a good thing). Star wars,Reagans strategic defense initiative was derided by his opponents as being technologically unfeasible,but the mere threat of the US building the system was instrumental in the soviet unions collapse. Nuclear weapons cuts,the INF Treaty he signed with Gorbachev eliminated an entire class of nuclear weapons. The Start Treaty reduced both countries arsenals of nuclear weapons. Let's discuss why Reaganomics was a good thing. His mix of across-the board tax cuts,deregulation and domestic spending restraint helped fuel an economic boom that lasted two decades. He inherited an inflation and unemployment rates of 19.99% and when he left office it had dropped to 9.72%. Under Reaganomics 16 million new jobs were created. The Tax Reform Act of 1986 simplified the income tax code by eliminating many tax shelters reducing the number of deductions and tax brackets. Reagan also took on the unions,by taking on Patca and sending a strong message that union workers needn't be coddled.
