Your problem is that your position merely shows the GOP's childish desire to 'get back at' Obama for all the stuff flung (justifiably, in most cases) at the former President.
What do you mean? From high unemployment rates (particularly amongst blacks and hispanics) to government bailouts of big business fat-cats while small business fails to the ever expanding national debt being financed by borrowing from communist China and the Saudi monarchy Obama has both continued and expanded Bush's economic policy.

Looking at what he has done from Egypt to Libya to Syria to... not to mention things like Guantanamo, torture and assassination by unmanned drone... Obama's foreign policy can be best described as Cheney on steroids.

Obama is but a pasty looking Bush clone.

Poor Republicans, they think if a brown person parrots their platitudes, people will buy into them. Delusional.

Obviously he has to cater to these people, they're running his party these days. You can't get elected Republican without pleasing the radical right wing of the party; unfortunately, that makes you unelectable in general elections such as for President.
Worse for Rubio since he obviously wants to please his Hispanic base by reforming immigration, but knows that position will infuriate Teabaggers..
Rubio is a blatant opportunist. And his cuddling up to the Tea Party ninnies will lose him much mainstream support. Does this remind anyone of someone else who fits that description and who lost the presidential election?

It is such a hoot to see how much the Topix repugnantcans' very little world keeps closing further and further in on them. They've been wailing all this doom and gloom, "President Obama sucks, is a murderer, is destroying U.S. economy, etc." all this time and yet nothing ever changes! President Obama continues to be President, the economy continues to improve and the rest of us continue to basically tolerate them. They cry and whine about what a burden everybody in American society is with absolutely no recognition of their own contributions to that load. Oblivion is never a healthy thing; rmoney proved that over and over and over. Ya gotta feel for people who have this much trouble learning from experience.

True, many politicians are opportunists. What I am suggesting is that Marco Rubio and Mitt Romney have certain qualities in common.

-Both make their opportunism blatant. Successful politicians learn how to disguise it, at least to some degree.

-Both Rubio and Romney openly shift their positions with the political winds. This makes them come off as unprincipled.

-Both have mistakenly cast their lot with the extreme right wing. The cost is a loss of mainstream appeal, without which all they can win is the heavy breathing of the Tea Party.

Romney's failure has already set the example. Rubio seems eager to follow it.

Well stated. And while I'm at it, every time I see your screen name, I have this urge to add an exclamation point to it.

More proof you simply spew without knowing what you're talking about. You hate Democrats...we get that.

Recession - not due to "overspending"
Lack of growth - Not due to "overspending"
Failing foreign policy - obviously not due to "overspending"
"Busted cities" - not due to "overspending"

Indeed, in at least three of those cases (excluding foreign policy) more spending would have sharply IMPROVED the problems.

And which is the party that doesn't believe in more spending?

You got it...:)

Joe Biden drunk on campaign trail - NOT a joke video (by John Raytheon)



Biden Gaffe: Asks a Gentleman in a Wheelchair to Stand Up

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Joe Biden's 1988 gaffe and his explanation:''I exaggerate when I'm angry''

The tape, which was made available by C-SPAN in response to a reporter's
request, showed a testy exchange in response to a question about his law
school record from a man identified only as ''Frank.'' Mr. Biden looked at
his questioner and said:''I think I have a much higher I.Q. than you do.''

He then went on to say that he ''went to law school on a full academic
scholarship - the only one in my class to have a full academic
scholarship,'' Mr. Biden said. He also said that he ''ended up in the top
half'' of his class and won a prize in an international moot court
competition. In college, Mr. Biden said in the appearance, he was ''the
outstanding student in the political science department'' and ''graduated
with three degrees from college.'' Comments on Assertions

In his statement today, Mr. Biden, who attended the Syracuse College of Law
and graduated 76th in a class of 85, acknowledged:''I did not graduate in
the top half of my class at law school and my recollection of this was
inacurate.''

As for receiving three degrees, Mr. Biden said:''I graduated from the
University of Delaware with a double major in history and political science.
My reference to degrees at the Claremont event was intended to refer to
these majors - I said 'three' and should have said 'two.''' Mr. Biden
received a single B.A. in history and political science.

''With regard to my being the outstanding student in the political science
department,'' the statement went on.''My name was put up for that award by
David Ingersoll, who is still at the University of Delaware.''

In the Sunday interview, Mr. Biden said of his claim that he went to school
on full academic scholarship:''My recollection is - and I'd have to confirm
this - but I don't recall paying any money to go to law school.'' Newsweek
said Mr. Biden had gone to Syracuse ''on half scholarship based on financial
need.''

I don't really deny that, but Republicans seem to feel the need to make accusations and attacks which portray Obama as the only problem, as the worst of the worst, and to blame him for everything no matter whether the same policy existed under Bush or not.
It's absurd and childish, and that kind of fake, ridiculous partisan division is why we can't govern this country anymore.

Rachel Maddow: Frequent White House Visitor

By Alexander Abad-Santos | The Atlantic Wire

A look at visitor logs from The White House has MSNBC's star being cleared
to enter The White House seven times and meeting with Obama face-to-face
three of those times--a number on par with King Abdullah of Jordan. That's
what the conservative-leaning Neil Munro at the conservative-leaning Daily
Caller reports.(Munro's piece doesn't state the specificities of how far
back he looked at the logs--it looks as though the visits are all from this
past year.) He concludes, "Rachel Maddow is the president's favorite media
hack." Sure, the piece gives reasons as to why Maddow's visits are out of
the ordinary (her ratings aren't as good as Fox's) and insinuates that The
President is being wasteful with his time (King Abdullah has the same amount
of visits), and that her visits mean that she's more better liked than
Arianna Huffington and Fareed Zakaria--all of which are subjective
conclusions which are arguably all up for debate.
