Marco Rubio, the actor

It strikes me that Marco is acting like a candidate for President. It doesn't seem natural to him. Bernie is a natural. Bill Clinton and Reagan were naturals. I think Rand Paul is a natural, but Rubio seems to be playing a role. Acting like a candidate, and presumedly, he'd act like a president if elected.

My nephew just posted pictures of himself with Rubio. They must have met in New Hampshire somewhere. Good Lord, he was raised better, but his choice,

R2, I've posted this before on a different thread. DL has been going down the list of the current most popular Repub Presidential candidates and listing why VERY SPECIFICALLY you would never vote for each individual. This helps those of us without an inside track to separate the hype from the truth. It is not sufficient to say you would never vote for a Repub no matter what the situation.

Most of us will encounter solid Conservatives or "Hillary Haters" and yes I've long predicted she will be the likely Democratic nominee. Regretfully I am very concerned about the demise of the Democratic Party if a large number of UNSCREENED immigrants arrive as Pres Obama will clearly be blamed. Least you think I'm being anti-Muslim at this point my major concern actually is economic. Despite Donald Trump rallying against Illegal immigration, mainly by Hispanics, the majority are not homeless and hungry nor do they suffer from serious language barriers in their attempt to get admittedly very low paid physical labor jobs under unpleasant conditions. In fact I'll bet many wealthy Repub do NOT want the majority of them deported especially considering at least their offspring would make far more physically and mentally capable military personnel in the truly unfortunate event of another Draft. Don't "shoot me" but it's true and I'm a Realist.

Now how many Mid East immigrants from ANY of the 18 countries scheduled to come to the US will be able to fill needed slots in medical care, specialized technology, etc? How long will it take the majority and how much money will it cost US taxpayers to become self-supporting? How will they get crucially needed medical care including vaccinations to prevent the spread of contagious diseases?

America has already given billions in aid to other countries. Pledged food and medicine to those in refugee camps from other countries haven't been delivered. At what point will those American citizens currently hungry and homeless say that there are children now going without? How about the current US Vets in need of perhaps permanent mental care and on waiting lists?

Colorado has followed NV in declaring Obamacare a very expensive failure; meaning the truly needy are NOT getting adequate medical and dental care but residents of 2 states will be paying back bills for generations.

Most Republican governors have declared Obamacase an expensive failure. That don't make it true, nor necessarily true if a number of Democratic governors do either. I was just reading that the facts show that medical care costs per person in the US have been increasing at the lowest rates in decades, since the passage of the ACA, and at a sharply reduced rate at that. The ACA continues to be a success while millions more have coverage.

R19, Thank you for your contribution re Mittens whom I NEVER would have supported. Quite telling that even HE did not trust Rubio. I have stated many times on DL that I'm a Moderate. I also believe in evaluating all candidates regardless of party affiliation. Earlier this evening a close friend and Republican with a strong military leadership background confessed he was disgusted with Trump, Carson and wondered where the party was heading.

by Anonymousreply 25November 8, 2015 10:56 AM

R25, I'd like to ask you to reconsider your disregard for party affiliation. Presidents and their parties work together to implement a set of priorities that they mostly agree upon. It is contradictatory to vote for alternate parties at election time, since the Rs and Ds work against each other's interests.

For example, the thing we call "Obamacare" was really crafted by the congress. The President's staff served to advise and comment on it, but had no real power in crafting the legislation. He signed it into law, but it wasn't really his bill.

Likewise, since the Rs have controlled one or more chambers of Congress, the Dems haven't been able to pass their legislation.

I'm voting straight Democratic, and encourage everyone to do so. It's the only way to see a progressive agenda passed in the US.

R5 specified he was replying to me. Anyone could have skipped. He referenced his pro and con separations of GOP candidates. He took the time to elaborate.

Then, other(s) react immaturely, and not bother to counter with any credibility concerning anything specific? Kadoos to R5 who perhaps disagreed with me. For all I know, he could be a flaming liberal. He didn't say whom he supports.

by Anonymousreply 27November 8, 2015 5:48 PM

R27, Thank you for your understanding. IF Trump becomes the Repub nominee it's because the other competitors are flawed IF one really looks below the surface presentation.

R26, As I've said before Obamacare is a total disaster in my state only really benefiting the top administrators making $300,000 a year. Was told they were political appointees without any experience in the insurance industry. Doctors who haven't been paid for months have dropped out of the program so it now takes months to get a doctor's visit. Those who are paying part of the fees must pay 100% of doctors' visits or start over from scratch with a new doctor meaning multiple visits. The program ends in Jan. Disaster.

Also dislike how Pres Obama handled the whole Mid East situation from Day-1. No I did not like Romney any better.

Moderates often wish "None of the Above" was a realistic choice.

Marco Rubio delighted the tea baggers when, at the last debate, he said we need more welders and fewer philosophers. He also spoke in favor of increasing military spending and America's military role in the world, though he himself never served in the military. (He was too busy climbing the ladder of GOP success.)

Rubio's opportunism and desperation regularly assert themselves at these debates and all we get from the fucking news media is how "sharp " he is, and what a great job he did. I find his attacks and rebuttals puerile. He reminds me of a high school sophomore. If you examine his positions on issues, they are muddled but they also reflect a lot of what Jeb wants. They are both NeoCons.

The one thing Marco Rubio seems to have is unbridled ambition and drive. His reach very obviously exceeds his grasp. He strikes me as a little unstable, prone to temper tantrums. He's a media invention, and if he would just stop attacking Bush, who is the golden boy, The Chosen One of the "establishment GOP" like Karl Rove, Rubio might have a future, except he refuses to listen. Very undisciplined.

So they will elevate him to take him down. They want to win. They'd prefer a whore on the bottom of the ticket like Rubio, that an ideolugue lunatic like Cruz. They had hopes for Rubio, but alas. Rubio has no discipline and he engages in magical thinking, convincing himself that things are as he sees them. True asshole. Just like the rest.

You'll recall we had a surplus when Bush took office, and slightly higher taxes. That was Clinton working with Congress. Then Bush wrecked it all. I hope we return to such sanity under Hillary!

by Anonymousreply 43November 30, 2015 2:45 PM

R41, I hear ya and agree. I doubt you'll see much support on DL for that. Too many gravitate to their party-line corners and flexibility in politics is not very apparent with any of the candidates and their respective followers. I am single, and recently retired after working 40 years. Adding up the federal taxes plus the state and local taxes, that's a huge chunk nearing 50%, collectively. As an individual, I would say, in actuality, I may be a consumer of about a fifth of that at most.

When they say "tax the rich", that's code for an upper-middle class and middle-middle class tax increase. It's always been that way.

by Anonymousreply 44November 30, 2015 2:55 PM

R44, you need a tax expert to help you, you shouldn't be paying 50% unless you are really rolling in dough, over $200,000. I pay about 16% - 20%, if I recall correctly, and I'm doing very well.

How much do you make, since you raised the subject?

by Anonymousreply 45November 30, 2015 3:05 PM

Actually, I can't understand how you could possibly be paying "near 50%". The max Federal tax rate is 33% on income to $411,000, but you only pay that on income (after deductions!) above $190,000. This is a graduated tax rate. On your first dollars of income, you pay much less tax. And long term capital gains are taxed at only 15%. Even adding state and local to that, it shouldn't come close to 50%.

You're complaining?

Cruz always sounds like a patronizing phony. He always sounds like he's talking to prepubescent children. His constant patronizing of all his Republican opponents (in public) just seems fake. He's not likable. When has the US ever elected a truly unlikable person to the presidency? Even his college roommate hates him.

My impression was that someone had drilled into Rubio the importance of staring into the camera at a certain spot, so as to give the viewers the customary personal experience. He was told no matter what, address that point like you would look into another person's eyes when speaking with them.

So, when he reached way out for the water bottle while staring into the camera, he just looked inexperienced, during an address were he should have demonstrated suffience experience and gravitas to critique the preceeding Presidential address.

Everybody does done things, but I hope my elected reps are smarter and more experienced than I am. He looked like neither. Just too green for Prime Time. He'll still be around and young in 8 years. He should run then.

It does seem that we are a nation of stupid people, but we aren't stupid enough to put a Republican in the White House any time soon. Thank goodness.

R102 Ya keep thinking that partner.

The lurching for water is classic dry mouth brought on by years of heavy coke use. His brother was a dealer.

His speech patterns annoy me. Weak-voiced, lacks gravitas, even seems a bit adolescent to me. And I disagree with R81. I don't think he has any real belief system or values - will say or "believe" anything to win. But it's the lack of confidence that stands out - with Jeb too. After the bravado of Trump, Cruz, Christie, I wonder if the vox populi will notice Rubio is a wimp.

Marco's debate performance two days ago demonstrated his acting ability. He repeated 3 or 4 times some criticism of Obama he had memorized. I'm not sure that is all that odd, but he repeated that boilerplate even after Chris Christy criticized him for repeating himself, and that made him look programmed and unable to think on his feet.

I agree R106, that the technique of repetition is not necessarily odd, but in this context it was bizarre. First, it is a stupid and inane point (about Obama knowing exactly what he's doing), and he makes it only to dispel the notion that he, Rubio, as a one-term Senator is not ready for the job of president. But, it takes too many leaps of logic to get from "Obama knew what he was doing" to "so do I." Most of them fall flat because he hasn't actually accomplished anything and he seems genuinely stupid.

Second, no one was contesting this point (mostly because no one cares). Obama is not running. So, it sounded more like rote memorization than a carefully crafted way to get your point across. He could have varied it a bit -- but he didn't. He said the same words over again four times.

Third, Christie had telegraphed all week long that this was the avenue of attack he was going to take -- and Rubio, instead of heading it off, walked into the trap.

Bottom line: he's a moron. I'm glad that he's not running for reelection for his Senate seat. What a dufus.

The best republican candidate is Hillary, and she's running Democratic!

R108, also a dufus.

The things that come out of Marco's mouth are stunning.

He wants to "restore" the military, while in fact, it's still the largest military in the world. It's larger than the next seven countries' militaries combined!

Republicans candidates today operate under the belief that the truthfulness of their statements really doesn't matter. They completely make shit up, and they get away with it. It used to be that politicians would express different understandings of the facts. Now, the Republicans just make up their own "facts".

Pity then that Rubio, the lying sack of shit, never actually served in the military.

NO to JEB, Cruz, Rubio. and Carson.

R111, well, their hero Reagan said: "Facts are stupid things."

R114, I wish it were true, but I think that's a joke.

Rubio's tax plan is an unrealistic plan to bribe voters by bankrupting the treasury. And the wealthiest get the biggest breaks, of course, as usual. How is he going to finance his fantasy of a ginormous military if he cuts taxes like this?

You put it on the national credit card, silly!

If you think that's shocking, wait until you hear about the things that have gone in it.

Those Christians love a story of redemption, though. He has four kids. He'll get a pass, I think. I long as there are no photos of him enjoying himself too much.

If he was Gay and doing foam parties and all, there should be boyfriends and selfies and vacation photos and other photos, right?

I just heard this liar talking about "rebuilding our military", when our military is bigger than the next 7 to 10 country's militaries combined. He went on about it. It drives me nuts when he misleads the public like that. He has a good chance of being the next President, too. A serial liar. It's disgusting.

They all think they are the next coming of Reagan, so Marco is working on his acting skills because Reagan was an actor.
