The great irony of the vice-presidential selection process is that the decision about who could be a heartbeat away from the presidency seems to have everything to do with electability and very little to do with leadership .

Will you shut the fuck up? The lack of jobs and the lack of prosperity has nothing to do with President Obama, or even Former president Bush. America has remained in their position in the rat race, while China, India, and Nigeria are gaining power and prestige. China is rapidly growing in wealth, India is so far behind either. Nigeria is recruiting many experts in academia and engineering fields, the gold mines for innovation. What are American teens doing, majoring in art and fucking each other, while the international students come here, master their craft, and then take their skill back to their homeland. Corporations out source jobs to foreign countries, b/c it's cheaper for them, and they don't complain about pay.
And you're blaming the last 20 years of power decline on a guy that hasn't even been in power for a full 4 YEARS? You don't have much pride in this great nation if you dimish patiotism to "finger pointing" and "scape goat declarations", and you embarrass me as a conservative by sounding so uneducated on the world around you.
America was around long before one man, and one man does not have the power to make it do anything on his own, the nation's people and lack of unity are the problem.



You're Pathetic and essentially quoting Jimmy Carter. Americans KNOW BETTER. More Government IS the Problem! Obama made matters worse. It's time for real change!

Marco Rubio could make the difference. Imagine him going into spanish speaking parts of our communities and telling people that in order to survive in America you will need jobs.
Illegal immigration can be fixed, but after it's fixed, people will need a successful economy and jobs.
Every republican needs to hold up a sign and say that their relatives were immigrants, too.
Republicans want LEGAL IMMIGRATION. What's wrong with following the federal law?
Obama has personally decide that HE is the arbitrator of what laws our country will enforce and what laws HE doesn't want enforced.
Obama is NOT KING of the USA. He's a shallow boy-man.
Rubio could also repeat the bullsh*t story about how his parents had to flee Cuba, by the skin of their teeth, just before Castro took over, even though they actually arrived in the States two years before Castro took over.

It's a good bullsh*t story and a lot of morons will fall for it.
Hell, a lot already have including the RW posters to this forum and the jerks at Fox News.

As I say, it's a good bullsh*t story. Why waste it?

Family staying at a motel, hopefully with HBO, and you would be ecstatic if it had a pool, no matter how small it was. It took you back to family times and how the little things were so big. And going down the hall, or to the first floor to get ice from the ice machine was great… and those were the best of times. Romney will never be able to relate to average everyday Americans the way President Obama can.
Nobama got through college on government freebies and tax payer money, his community organizer job gave him a salary for very little work, and his congress and senator jobs payed very well off the taxpayers.

Like he would know about cheap motels?? You're as funny as a cross eyed surgeon with a case of the shakes.

So you don't think Castro and Che were beginning their moves two years before??

The Cuban Revolution of 1959 began with the failed attack on the Moncada Barracks, and ended in triumph with the ousting of dictator Fulgencio Batista.

After a tremendous failure at Moncada, nearly all of the rebels were killed or captured. At his trial, Fidel Castro gave his famous speech, History Will Absolve Me, and was pardoned after only two years.

When released, he was forced into exile for his safety. In Mexico, he trained an army which he prepared for a guerilla war against Batista.

Rubio's parents came to the US before then, in 1956. They remained in the US after Castro took over in 1959. They returned to Cuba for brief stints early on, before the country devolved into Soviet-style totalitarianism. On May 24, 1958, Batista launch Operación Verano. With seventeen battalions, tanks, planes, and ships, they planned to enter the Sierra Maestra and force a showdown with Castro's rebels. Though greatly outnumbered, the rebels repeatedly inflicted heavy casualties on the army and drove them back.

Just the fact that Rubio's parents were smart enough to see what was coming, Castro communism and decided to stay in US was brilliant. But leave the dems to find fault with it. LMAO

You mean like the green energy lobbyists to nobama who have given us failure after failure for billions on the backs of taxpayers?

Senate democrats who have refused budget bills passed by the house? Liberal writers who have blantenly attacked West, Cain and other black republcians.

You're right for once.
