TIME is worse than PRAVDA with its propagandistic use of halos and shadows and buzz-words like "savior."

by Anonymousreply 102/07/2013

Wouldn't Latinos have to like Rubio in order for him to be seen as a savior?

He's had some shady dealing in the past. His mother has had some underworld connections, too.

He looks like a pasty white boy to me.

And all the different Latino nationalities hate one another - they're worse than Western Europeans - so I don't they'll be 'unified' anytime soon.

Ha! You've got that right. When I was in Colombia, I made sure not to mention that I was going to Ecuador. In Peru, I didn't mention that I had been in Ecuador. They've been having centuries of border wars.

Wrong. Obama has never run the preacher pulpit, r10.

by Anonymousreply 1302/07/2013

He wants to outlaw abortion and gay marriage, so he's not likely to attract many women or young people. His fiscal policies are on par with Paul Ryan's, so he will lost the older vote to Hillary once they hear about his plans for SS and Medicare. Obama probably would've won the older vote in 2012 had he been white.

And in 2016 a lot more of those asshole older people will have died off and the country will be even more Democratic.

Proving once again that the right simply doesn't get it.

They thought simply choosing a woman as VP would get them the WH. No need to pay attention to who the woman was, what she stood for and that she was a dolt. It was enough she had a vagina!

This Rubio thing is even dumber because he's Cuban, and they think that's enough to appeal to anyone Hispanic.

The GOP has become the Keystone cops of political parties. Bumbling idiots.

by Anonymousreply 1602/07/2013

R9, is not right. Latinos don't hate each other like eastern Europeans do. The majority stick together regardless of where they are from.

With that said, white republican Cubans are seen as snobs by the majority of Latinos.

And he's not too happy about contraception either.

He's a fraud. And no savior.

by Anonymousreply 1902/07/2013

Why would any Latino/Hispanic in their right mind vote for this guy, or any other Republican.

Karl Rove will string them along just to get their votes, just like he's done with fundamentalist Christians, and then forget about their asses once Republicans are in power, so they can continue their war on the poor and middle class.

Cuban Americans have traditionally fallen into the right-wing category, being exiles from Castro's Cuba and thus vehemently anti-Communist. I don't know whether or not newer generations of Cuban Americans identify politically that way or not, but certainly Puerto Ricans, who are natural born American citizens, and Latin Americans like Mexicans, who may well be from right-wing hellholes themselves, aren't necessarily primed to fall in love with someone like Rubio just because he can speak Spanish (though probably not in the same accent or dialect.)

by Anonymousreply 2302/07/2013

Frankly, I don't think he's very smart. A step up from Palin maybe but that's not saying much. A Presidential campaign would reveal it quickly.

by Anonymousreply 2402/07/2013

Republican savior? No way, no how. Undoubtedly he would have strong appeal to the Cuban community in Florida, but beyond that... no. Cubans are already disproportionately Republican compared to other Latinos, but other Latinos really don't like Cubans.

I could see him potentially winning Florida in 2016, which would certainly help the sad Republican cause, but he would have even less appeal than Mittens in the midwest or Virginia, which are critical for the Republicans to get back.

Wasn't Mitt the Republican Savior?

What happened to Sarah P. the Republican Savior?

And Paul Ryan the Republican Savior?

The only thing that will save the republicans will be when they change their views, principals and polices.

Until then they are toast.

The national media has no idea that all people who speak Spanish do NOT consider themselves to be brothers/sisters. Ask a Cuban American what they think of Mexicans or Puerto Ricans. Ask a Puerto Rican what they think of Mexicans. There is a definite pecking order and they will be happy to explain it to you.

It means brown on the outside but white on the inside.

Repugs are ridiculously stupid. They truly believe that minorities are so desperate for "the first" that they'll just vote for anyone who happens to be a member of their particular group regardless of that person capabilities, accomplishments, and political ideology. You want the first to be accomplished, intelligent, and capable. You also want someone who you agree with politically. Would you vote for just any gay guy or woman to be president? Repugs are being offensive without even realizing it.

A Venezuelan friend once told me that Argentineans are considered a snottier bunch than Cubans.

Oh, he'll be packaged as a nice, sane, humane guy. On abortion or gay marriage or DOMA, he'll say things like "I haven't come to a final decision. I think it should be up to the states. Everyone should be treated equally, not special." And some people will fall for that. And he will lose. And the GOP will be on its way to joining the Whigs or the Bull Moose parties in obscurity.

Quinnipiac is out with a new poll today that has Hillary Clinton at 61% approval, making her the most popular politician in the country by a wide margin. She's 10 points ahead of Obama and has double the popularity of Rubio.

by Anonymousreply 6502/08/2013

The fundamental issue with the GOP is that it's pretty hard to convince anyone with a conscience that "Greed is good" which, when you get right down to it, is the GOP's entire fiscal platform.

Not to mention that most of the civilized world has moved past the whole abortion and equal rights thing except the Grand Ole' Fogey Party.

by Anonymousreply 6602/08/2013

This piece of shit surely knows he cannot compete with Hillary Fucking Clinton.

Plus, the GOP primaries are going to be a shitshow again. An embarrassment of losers.

The only Repug who stands a chance at possibly winning is the only one who is sullied from the outset: Jeb Bush

by Anonymousreply 7302/13/2013

It's almost like the Repugs can't find one single Mexican person in all of America and get their opinion on Rubio. They'd have their eyes opened quickly about their "well, he's one of them Spanish-types" idiocy. I mean, can't they ask their illegal lawn guys or nannies?
