    Can We Stop with the Hispanic is a Race Nonsense? 

    Seriously people, enough.  All of these people are “Hispanic”.  Do they look alike to you?  Remember much of the South America had a slave trade from Africa.  They were heavily colonized from European cultures.  They also have lines back to Indians as well.

    sammy davis jr cameron diaz jennifer lopez angel salvadore zoe rubio charlie sheen TED CRUZJust stop it.  Hispanic is not a race, it is a ethnic thing, not a race thing.  Don’t believe me, go tell a Cuban that they are the same as Mexican and see what response you get. Stop allowing the people who want to divide everyone set the narrative.

    Marco Rubio’s Very Impassioned Speech on Immigration Reform – Video 

    I don’t think there is a conservative out there that doesn’t agree with him on why people come to America.  My regular readers will know I am first generation.  I grew up almost exclusively around other new immigrants who left small towns in Scandinavia, who were in bad shape after decades of war and the aftermath, in search of a better life.  I get it.  I don’t know of one of them that came illegally.  Not one.

    My dad had to report to INS quarterly with pay stubs, he had to have a sponsor that had $15,000 in the bank.  This was in the 50’s, just imagine how hard it was to find someone with that kind of money in the bank back then.  He waited four years for his visa to be approved.  He learned English and taught his children to be very understanding of the fact that growing up in this country was a privilege, not a right.  I can’t tell you how rich I would be if I had a dollar for every time I heard “You don’t know how lucky you are to be born in America”.

    Yes, Mr. Rubio, your parents worked very hard to give their children choices and options that were not quite available to them.  How many laws did they break in order to do it?  How many people had to wait that much longer to get their legal visas because of all the people who didn’t follow the rules were able to get a visa that has been unobtainable to them?  (A family member of mine, being one).  How many citizens  salaries suffered because of your parents?  Because even the CBO says that will happen for about a decade if this bill ever becomes law.  The only ones making money off this will be the government.  Great, we keep feeding the beast.

    I was willing to walk this road with you Mr. Rubio if it meant we were going to get real reforms on the legal visa system and border security.  But since we get neither with this bill………………only 25% of the flow of illegals will be stopped.

    So yes Mr. Rubio, your speech was impassioned.  But your vote sold out millions upon millions of Americans.  I hope your parents are proud of that little fact.

    Quote of the Day – Marco Rubio Edition 

    Let’s be clear. Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization. Then come the measures to secure the border. And then comes the process of permanent residence

    Ok, I am done.  I want to see immigration reform.  Especially when it comes to visa reform.  But until the borders is secured, there is nothing to talk about.  Luckily it seems that they can’t get the house on board.

    Shame on you Senator Rubio, shame on you.

    Quote of the Day – Alex Conant Edition 

    We haven’t had a cohort of people living permanently in US without full rights of citizenship since slavery.

    Alex Conant is the media spokesperson for Senator Marco Rubio.

    Oh my.  I am just shaking my head.  I have been somewhat supportive of Rubio’s plan on immigration.  I am of the mind that we need to actually solve the problem because it will just continue to get worse unless we do.

    But to say something like this.  I am in utter disbelief that someone that works for a senator would say something like this.  Um, slaves didn’t come here voluntarily and break our laws while doing so.

    This is not the way to win over the conservative base that Rubio will need to get this passed.  This man really hurt his boss today and hurt the chances of us getting something done that may have a chance of securing our borders.

    Dumbass.

    Quote of the Day – Mark Levin Edition 

    While I oppose the immigration bill, given the border-security issue and Obama’s record of non-enforcement, among other things, I regret linking to a post that refers to Senator Rubio as a slick used car salesman.  He is earnest and thoughtful and deserves much better.  He loves his country and means well, unlike too many politicians.  There are slick used car salesmen on Capitol Hill, many come to mind, but Rubio is certainly not one of them.

    Also, while I’m on the subject, there are bloggers, columnists, and radio hosts who will personally trash Rubio because they think that shows how tough they are on illegal immigration or how conservative they are.  Actually, they are pretenders.  Most of them have done nothing on this issue or for the conservative movement.  Landmark Legal Foundation has been involved in every recent, major piece of litigation against the Obama administration involving illegal immigration, including assisting Arizona in its defense of its law and borders.  We went all the way to the Supreme Court.  I don’t recall any of these “tough” guys and gals behind their computers and microphones lifting a finger.  None of them.  Talk is cheap, and many of them are frauds.

    Yes, many of them are.

    Rand Paul and the Filibuster 

    I really do hope that you watched at least a little of that last night.  It was epic.  While it certainly didn’t hit the historic lengths that others have over the years, it was still darn good.

    I mean how often do you hear the federalist papers read on the senate floor?  I was literally swooning while listening to Shakespeare and the Federalist Papers by Ted Cruz. Oh my.  I also got my tweet read by him as well!! LOL.  I was so proud.

    I really hope that all homeschoolers out there used this as a Civics lesson.  I can’t imagine anything better to teach our children about how the government should work.

    Brennan will be the next CIA Director, but that wasn’t the point of what he was doing.  The point is the limits of the executive branch and protecting the fifth amendment.  It is amazing to me that even more people in this country are not up in arms about this.  Do we really want any president to have that kind of power?  Do I think it is likely that a president would use a drone to kill an American citizen?  No, I don’t.  But that doesn’t mean that it is impossible nor does it mean that we should give the power to one person just because we think they would never use it.

    This was one of my favorite moments:

    I was also very happy to learn that he had some support from interesting places;

    1. Sen. Cruz reading Tweets from all of you meant a lot to me. Protecting the Constitution is everyone’s fight.

    Code Pink was tweeting along, as well as John Cusack:

    Good question“@cenkuygur: Up to 8 Senators now joining the Rand Paul . Where are the so-called progressive Democratic senators?”

    For gods sake where are democrats ?? “@democracynow: Rand Paul: Obama Admin Response Drones “More Than Frightening” http://owl.li/itdHI 

     

    So Rand was able to make some strange bedfellows.  Which is exactly what the GOP needs. They need someone to stand up and talk about issues that should be important to all Americans.  Civil Liberties affects us all, and the idea that our government may be taking them away should be a concern to every American.

    One of the very best thing that I thought Senator Paul did last night was the never attacked the president personally.  He stayed on the issues.  This is another lesson that many others in the GOP and the conservative movement need to learn.  Personal attacks are a turn off and unproductive.

    I was proud last night.  Senator Paul did us all proud.

    Here are some other highlights:

      Subject: Breaking news on Papal progress!

      Obama Wants To Be Next Pope

      WASHINGTON, DC – Sources close to the White House have learned that
      Barack Obama is planning to run for the office of Pope when the
      College of Cardinals convenes to elect a successor to ailing Benedict
      XVI at the end of this month.

      Calling on the promise of Equality for All, Obama is said to firmly
      believe that the time has come for a non-Catholic to occupy the
      Vatican’s highest office.

      Foreseeing a looming citizenship issue, he states that he has
      discovered an Italian birth certificate that proves he was born in
      Rome before he was born in Kenya. “That Hawaiian birth certificate
      never has been worth what I paid for it anyway,” he noted.

      Continuing, he concluded, “And there’s no way that a handful of
      cardinals could be more expensive to buy than 10 million voters in
      Michigan.”

      Further questions should be directed to Obama’s Papal Campaign
      Manager, Abdul Azeem Khan.

    Liberal Tolerance On Display 

    As most have probably heard, Senator Rubio’s 12-year-old daughter was hurt in a golf car accident.  She was air-lifted to Children’s Hospital and is listed in fair condition.  A horrible thing for a parent to go through.  No matter who the parent is.

    Yahoo put out a brief article on the accident.  Lets take a look at the comments under said article.

    This Cuban eemigrant needs to keep his name relevant because pudgy, white Returds have somehow convinced him to run for Pres. in 2016. He’s not the first Repube to pìmp his kid. Remember when Palin waved her Retard at the ’08 GOP ConVention?

    Isn’t he one of the SOB’S that voted agains’t Obamacare? How poetic ! He even stated when elected that he wasn’t going to sign up for a Government Health plan offered to congress.So, my question is, is who is paying for her Helicopter ride and treatment at Miami’s Trauma Center. I guess that chickens are coming home to roost. Rubio is a Puta!

    Who gives a crap about this wet back Cuban and his anchor baby. Please this is not news yahoo and nobody cares, ugh

    It sure sounds like this was God’s will. I hope the young lady doesn’t have to pay for Marco’s sins.

    Rubio:” you weep what you sow”. Karma/Proverbs.

    I’ll bet some of the wacko gop senate candidates for senate are saying this is God’s will. Isn’t that what they say about different types of rape and unwanted pregnancies?

    If Rubio wants accept 100% tax payer funded medical insurance that he receives as a US Senator which is in reality free socialized medical care ,and he want’s to deny it to every one else. Then Rubio and his brats need to get back on their inner tube raft and float their as back to Cuba

    golf-cart accident, huh? well, at least she didn’t have to be treated for the terrible case of carpal tunnel she’s developed from beating the help

    Please use the republican healthcare plan and not my taxes….get well or DIE, VOTE REPUBLICAN for LESS GOVERNMENT and higher profits for corporations, Hope this tick is not sucking my taxes for her healthcare, Rubio better be paying 100% out of his wealthy pocket!

    Rubio ,with his 100% tax payer funded health insurance, won’t have to pay a penny out-of-pocket. I’m positive that filthy Repuke won’t offer to re-imburse the citizens of the USA. No, he’ll be more than happy to accept socialized medical care for himself and his own. But hey ! The rest of America be damned, he got his and to hell with every one else ! ….Eff Rubio and the Republicans….Vote OBAMA/BIDEN 2012 ! !

    Senator,the children of Palestine are dying in large numbers due to Israels blockade.Denying them desperately needed medicine and food supplies.Blood diseases and cancer are off the charts from the nuclear tipped bombs Israel uses on people throwing stones.

    To be fair, many called out these comments and said while they didn’t agree with Rubio’s politics, they wished his daughter well.  But this is still ghoulish.  What have become as a society?

    Best wishes and prayers out to the Rubio family while their daughter recovers.  The people who left these comments need prayers as well.

      Subject: CEO from Generous Electric

      Generous Electric, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He asked the guy, “How much money do you make a week?” A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, “I make $400 a week. Why?” The CEO said, “Wait right here.”
      He walked back to his office, came back in two minutes, and handed the guy $1,600 in cash and said, “Here’s four weeks’ pay. Now GET OUT and don’t come back.” Feeling pretty good about himself the CEO looked around the room and asked, “Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?”
      From across the room a voice said, “Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.”

        I just be lovin` yer stories !

        In the `60s, before the local paper mill became unionized, the home office sent Efficiency Experts in to trim costs and make things run smoother. While touring around one of the paper machines, he noticed all the employees just standing around, doing nothing but relaxing. He told the foreman he didn`t like that, and asked why they weren`t busy ? The foreman informed him that the machine was working fine. The EE insisted that the workers be busy, so the foreman stuck a broom handle into the paper speeding thru creating a tear. Alarms sounded and paper began to bunch up in the rollers and pile up on the floor. The workers jumped to their stations and began to unclog the works to get the machine back in order.

        That`s when the foreman told the smiling EE, “I hope you`re happy now; the mill is making no money, but paying out money, but the men are busy !”

    Romney Wins Big – Let the VP Stakes Begin 

    First, I take no pleasure whatsoever saying this.  Romney will be the GOP nominee.  Santorum has run out of field.  There are not enough truly conservative states left to get him to the nomination.  Of course he will keep going in the hopes of a contested convention, but in their hearts of hearts they know it is not in the cards.

    Therefore, it is time.  VP Stakes:

    There are plenty to choose from.

    Herman Cain: I don’t see it.  The issues that came up about the affair would scare off any candidate in my mind.  Why deal with that distraction when you don’t have to?  I give this almost no chance.

    Paul Ryan: A great choice, but very young.  He also has very young children who he doesn’t want to put into the spotlight at their tender ages.  Which just makes me love him all the more.  Also, very remote chance of this happening.

    Chris Christie:  This is a non-starter as far as I am concerned.  I like many things about Christie, but he adds nothing to the ticket.  He won’t bring NJ over to the GOP.  He is just as moderate as Romney is in most respects.  So I give this almost no chance.

    Michele Bachman: She will excite the base, but let’s be honest; she is a loose cannon.  Romney won’t take the chance of her blowing his last chance at being president.

    Marco Rubio: He is dynamic and from a swing state.  He had a great deal of tea party support.  Notice I said had.  There are many in the Tea Party who have lost confidence in him.  He has some issues with a brother-in-law who has had some drug dealing issues.  Of course that has nothing to do with him, he didn’t marry the guy, but the media will have some fun with that.  He also has said that he has zero intention of taking it even if offered.  Of course much easier to say no to a reporter than to the nominee.  He is also young.  He may feel he isn’t ready yet.   I would give this a 50/50 chance.

    Allen West: West has been favorable towards Newt, although he never came out and endorsed him.  West has the entire package that the conservative base is looking for.  He will make an excellent attack dog on the stump.  He will pull no punches with Obama, which will allow Romney to stay above the fray and concentrate on comparing and contrasting policies with the Obama administration.  West had some issues in Iraq that will come up again.  He sometimes doesn’t always filter what he is saying.  He also just moved in order to run for congress again.  I would give this maybe a 40% chance.

    Sarah Palin: Heaven knows she has been vetted.  But she is also very polarizing.  I also don’t think she would accept.  Why be the small dog again when she had the chance to run for the big seat and decided to bow out?  I give this less than a 20% chance.

    Rand Paul: I like Rand.  A lot as a matter of fact.  He also is another that will take on Obama without fear.  His down side is that it will add fuel to the fire to the people who accused Romney and Ron Paul of working together and Rand getting the VP seat as the payoff.  It will alienate the people who believe this.  But, it may bring in Ron Paul fans.  Not likely, but some may be willing to vote for him.  I would say this is about a 30% chance.

    I don’t see him taking any of the candidates he went up against.  The blood between Newt and him is way to bad for it to be repaired.  It looks like it is starting to get that way with Rick now as well.  I would give this the least likely of the scenarios.

    My pick is Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia.  He is currently the head of the RGA.  Has a rising profile nationally.  He has spoken at the Reagan library recently and was received well.  His administration has been very successful.  He has increased revenues without raising taxes, VA’s ratings has increased under his administration, he has kept most of his promises when he was elected, (one more year to fulfill the balance).  He is also a very good campaigner.  He is a staunch conservative, which Romney needs to excite the base.  Virginia is a swing state, and right now is trending to Obama by 8 points with Romney as the nominee.  (Which Romney was the best of the remaining candidates).

     

    Your predictions?

      With Romney only just past 1/3 of the way to 1,440 delegates required to garner the nomination, you might at least “consider” that you could be jumping the gun a bit early. Santorum has already surprised the “experts” ! Much can happen and I pray it will ! I do not want Rombama !

      Alan West would fill the VP bill for me.

      Marco Rubio just may be ineligible as his parents were not citizens at the time of his birth; IF I understand it correctly. A shame; I like his brand of conservatism !

      • just a conservative girl 6:58 AM on 03/21/2012 Permalink | Reply

        There is no viable path to the nomination for anyone but Romney. You have to remember a few things, starting April 1 most states become winner takes all. You also have to look at many of the states that are left, Maryland, CT, CA, are not going to vote for Santorum. Where he does well is where they are large numbers of evangelicals. He also still has places where he is not even on the ballot; DC for instance. He also has issues with delegates in PA. He has very few delegates that he can win in that state, even though he will more than likely win the state.

        It is over. Romney is the nominee. Rick had to have IL last night to have any kind of chance and he fell way short.

        Cubans back in the 60’s were given citizenship very quickly. He may very well have been born to citizens. Also, the court has never ruled on what Natural Born Citizen means. I admire your consistency in the matter though. I have read quite a few people going after Santorum as well.

        • signpainterguy 5:05 PM on 03/21/2012 Permalink | Reply

          As I said, Santorum won some states the experts said he wouldn`t; I`m not giving up on him !

          Article 2, Section 1 of the US Constitution is clear enough on what constitutes a Natural Born Citizen; a person born on US lands to parents who are citizens. Notice “parents” is plural; meaning, not one parent or the other, but BOTH ! THAT makes Obama ineligible. IF Cubans were given immediate(ish) citizenship, then there`s probably no issue with Rubio`s NBC status ! That would be good !

      Great post. Romney needs two things: foreign policy cred and TEA Party support. Make that three things, actually, because he needs to reach out to minorities, too.

      For these reasons, the short list for the Romney campaign probably includes Rubio, Jindal, and West. No way in hell is either Palin or Bachmann on it, but they may be stupid enough to consider Christie or Rand Paul. I doubt he’s thinking Ryan as Ryan’s strength is the economy and budget (the same as Romney’s purported strengths). Ryan would add to a Santorum ticket, not Romney’s. I’d love to see him pick Herman Cain, but seriously doubt it’s even a distant thought. My pick is Colonel West.

      There is a chance that he’ll go with Nicki Haley, a smart choice for the women’s/minority vote, but I wouldn’t put money on that one.

      • just a conservative girl 6:03 PM on 03/25/2012 Permalink | Reply

        The reason that I think he will go McDonnell over West is that Romney is a play it safe kind of guy and West is very bold choice. I am not sure he is that bold.

            Well A. Newt won’t be the nominee (much to your happiness I am sure;}) and B. he can’t take McDonnell anyway. They are from the same state. You are right, West adds a great deal, but I still think it is a little more bold than Romney is willing to go.

    If there is any path to his winning office in Florida again- and there may not be- it’s as something other than a Republican.

    Looking good for Rubio!

    Rubio is South Carolina bound 

    CNN is reporting that Marco Rubio will take part in a three city tour with Sen. Jim Demint in March:

    Here’s one indicator of Marco Rubio’s star power: the Florida Republican Senate candidate has not even won his election, but he’s already heading to a key state in the presidential nominating process.

    Rubio will join Sen. Jim DeMint, one of his political patrons, for a three-city tour of South Carolina on March 15 to “promote common sense ideas and new conservative leadership,” a GOP source in the state told CNN Monday.

    DeMint aides will also launch a new Web site – DeMintRubio.com – to promote the tour starting Tuesday. DeMint broke with his GOP colleagues in the Senate last summer to endorse Rubio in his GOP primary battle against Gov. Charlie Crist. The conservative senator also introduced Rubio before the rising star’s speech last Thursday to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

    I like the idea of DeMint taking the young candidate under his wing, showing him the ropes and helping him with his election.  But not surprising, not everyone feels that way:

    The Crist campaign was quick to pounce on the news of Rubio’s out-of-state foray.

    “It is remarkable that the New York Times cover boy is already testing out a key Presidential primary state instead of focusing on the voters he’s asking to elect him,” said Crist spokeswoman Amanda Hennenberg in a statement e-mailed to reporters. (Rubio was featured on the cover of the New York Times magazine earlier this year.)

    “It’s disappointing that Speaker Rubio’s new found fame would lead him to so quickly forget Floridians. Slowly but surely, we are seeing more of who the real Marco Rubio is – someone who routinely puts politics and political aspirations (and in this case South Carolina) above the people.”

    Hmmm, let’s take a brief look at Crist’s schedule shall we?

    Monday, February 22, 2010
    GOVERNOR CHARLIE CRIST (R-FL) – Candidate for Senate with Special Guest Senator George LeMieux (R-FL)
    Fundraising Reception: 5:30 p.m.
    Location: Capital Hilton, 1001 16th Street NW, Washington, DC 20036
    Hosts: Christopher Nassetta, CEO of Hilton Worldwide
    Cost: $2,500 Per Person/PAC Co-Host, $1,000 Per Person/PAC General

    Tuesday, February 23, 2010
    GOVERNOR CHARLIE CRIST (R-FL) – Candidate for Senate
    Fundraising Luncheon: 11:30 a.m.
    Location: TBD, Downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    Hosts: Steve Burke and Manny Stamatakis
    Cost: $1,000 Per Person

    This is in addition to his previous fundraisers here, there and everywhere including Atlanta and Aspen.  So is Charlie the pot or the kettle?  And is it just me or did that “New York Times cover boy” crack sound a bit, well, catty.

      We’re all watching Marco Rubio, whether he comes to see us or not:) He’s been an encouragement for some months. I’ve linked to his videos and polls in Illinois to make the conservative point in our primary and in the general election for Senate. The stimulus as structured last year was a bad idea. Crist embraced it.

      Rubio is up in the polls. Way up. So yes, I’d venture to say that Crist is indeed being catty. That should win him some votes, right? (heh)
