    Dems like to pretend they support Hispanic progress in America but why the disconnect with Marco Rubio? He's Hispanic, right? He's a real American, right?

    What's the problem?

    Why are they asking the black man Meeks to step aside to help Lilly-white Charlie Crist?

    They're asking the black guy to step down so they can defeat the Hispanic, hurting both blacks and Hispanics to help the white guy?

    Because Marco Rubio is an Uncle Jose.

    It's as easy as the 'C' Word. He's of the wrong stripe. Nevermind his parents struggled to get him to where he is now. To the Statist? Rubio is an anomolie that must be squashed for their real story.

    Cannot have a real life story of struggle when the person in the story picks the wrong side.

    CrusaderFrank, even your question is racist, you know? It adds nothing to the discussion whatsoever. Perhaps racists, like pedophiles, should be monitored by local law enforcement. What do you think?

    My hunch--and this is just a guess, mind you--would be that it's because he's a Republican.

    However, that does raise an interesting question. Democrats have a decent number of old white men running--why don't Republicans support them?

    If the race were over today, the breakdown would be

    171 Dems
    43 Toss Ups
    GOP 221

    That means they have 44 right there.

    The interesting thing coming up is not going to be the Obama-House struggle as much as it is going to be a GOP TeaParty fight in the House.

    So, he's just not the right kind of Hispanic, right?

    Wrong answer Fake. Frank's question highlights WHY Staist Americans don't support Rubio. It's because of his Conservative message...while the President says to Latinos this past week that they must 'Punish their enemies'.

    Where the Hell have you been? Under a fucking rock?

    Don't go away angry...just go away Fake.

    What is your problem GreenTeeth? Idealology. Those 'Old White Men' are Statists...where Rubio is Conservative.

    You figure it out dipshit. Nice trap you set. The bait I throw back in your face Green.
