    Rubio makes everything fast, elegant and horrifically, he is nota Russian haters who also wants to invade Russia, like many other candidates do not want to since the 1980's when Ronald Reagan was president of America or what do other people in the community? Rubio is finished like Carson and Kasich and maybe Romney well if he don't choise if last kampf vs Trump.

    Cruz is maybe last duell vs Trump. And maybe Romney is the GOP in Cruz line up and Christie GOP in Trump line up.

    It's kinda curious that Marco Rubio would be a republican favorite given their attacks on President Obama about experience. Hopefully Rubio bows out and the republicans get the candidates they helped create: Trump or Cruz, both so loved by the establishment. Karma for sure.

    Marco Rubio's file | PolitiFact Florida

    [VIDEO]Fact-checking the March 6 news shows

    But Trump and Cruz have added an interesting ploy in this election, they criticize the very system they are part of. Trump less so as he is simply using the years of republican agitprop. For the interested the book quoted below is a must read.

    "But there is another level of dog whistle politics evident in Romney's campaign, a deeper connection far more consequential to the middle class yet completely unseen by most critics. Romney's true debt to dog whistle politics lay in his ability to garner widespread support while espousing plutocratic priorities. Like a reincarnated Barry Goldwater tilting against the New Deal, Romney cast himself as a champion of the middle class, promising rescue from the economic crisis and a new era of prosperity. But what were his actual proposals? Favoring sweeping pronouncements over revealing detail, Romney reiterated three themes: he would slash taxes (while also balancing the budget); he would prune away government regulation and even excess government itself, liberating the engine of private enterprise; and he would pare government entitlement programs that transferred resources to the least productive elements in society. These were hardly prescriptions likely to help the great bulk of the middle class, especially if understood as families with incomes below six figures. Instead, Romney effectively campaigned on the promise to enact the policy preferences of society's moguls: tax cuts for the rich; deregulation; reduced social spending." p164 'Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class' by Ian Haney López

    Does Romney not sound like Trump et al republicans? Or visa versa, and so it goes....
