    Funny that Rubio is saying he's new and fresh while harping away the same things all Repubs do. His whole plan is to take from the poor and give to the rich.

    Except that Obama had much more world experience, better education and he's just plain smarter.

    We can all be thankful that Rubio doesn't have a chance of being elected.

    That's true. He has done nothing but try to take affordable health insurance away from Americans. He says he's tee potty but he actually seems to be nothing more than anti-freedoms, liberties, rights.

    But hey, that's okay cuz he'll change his mind tomorrow.

    No.

    Just pointing out that the GOP (as always) is two-faced. You losers have spent 8 years telling us that a 1 term Senator isn't qualified to be President. Now you've got 3 in your primaries. Good luck walking back those comments.

    That statement cuts both ways...Dems will now say a 1 term Senator ISN'T qualified, and that it is really experience that is really important.

    How do Liberals attack a one term senator when they just elected a half term senator.

    Pot, meet kettle.

    Unlikely.

    But keep dreaming.

    Well, in the first place, they don't have to since they have a candiate who is superior to any of the 1 term senators who are running. I mean, there is nothing to be gained by the GOP bringing up their qualifications because as a trio, they have accomplished nothing. Now Rubio did try to get immigration reform as the gang of 8...feel free to bring that up. Clinton is their superior in every way, shape, form, etc... The GOP won't bring up qualifications if one of the 3 1-termers are the nominee. The governors can bring it up but it's dangerous for them too.

    In the second place, Obama's candidacy is much different than what Cruz, Paul, and Rubio can run. Since the GOP is committed to spending $0.00 and raising taxes $0.00 and therefore generating a ROI of $0.00, neither of the 3 (as well as the rest of the GOP field) can campaign on anything new. There can be no new programs of merit, there can be no new investments that will move the needle at all, and there can be no sizable expansion of the economy since all of them have committed to doing the least amount possible from Washington. Obama's candidacy proposed new ideas such as the ACA which, after a rough launch, has become accepted nationwide.
