coco ebert: We've been reduced to arguing over definite and indefinite articles.
Somacandra: FTFA: This touring indignation act isn't just for Rubio's own benefit. The Republicans he needs to win over to pass a bill will be a lot more comfortable if they think they're somehow thumbing their nose at Obama by voting for it. We've seen this dynamic on other issues....since January 2009.[i.imgur.com image 562x447]
ib_thinkin: tenpoundsofcheese: article states "could help pass A bill"subby lies by saying "getting THE bill passed".subby failed.FTFA: This touring indignation act isn't just for Rubio's own benefit. The Republicans he needs to win over to pass a bill will be a lot more comfortable if they think they're somehow thumbing their nose at Obama by voting for it. We've seen this dynamic on other issues in recent weeks, most notably the debt ceiling, where conservative Republicans delivered a lot of macho partisan talk about a bill that was objectively a huge cave to the White House. If a compromise bill ends up passing, expect to see a lot of statements from Republicans supporters about how they stopped some non-existent White House "amnesty" bill.So, basically, the article states, "could help pass the bill" and 10-Poc couldn't bring himself to finish reading the paragraph in question.10-Poc fail.
kumanoki: How do you say 'whoops' in Spanish?
Serious Black: Is Rubio the new Santorum?
Philip Francis Queeg: Serious Black: Is Rubio the new Santorum?He's more the new Rick Perry.
incendi: Philip Francis Queeg: Serious Black: Is Rubio the new Santorum?He's more the new Rick Perry.If he has another farkup like the SOTU rebuttal, yeah. He's had some ridiculously high expectations brought down a bit, which may work to his advantage eventually, but he can't afford another public error of that magnitude.
Weaver95: I wonder if the GOP is ever going to realize that you can't take people to the edge of fear and leave 'em there. there's a rhythm to these sorts of things, like a roller coaster. ups and downs and around corners and all that. you need to back off the fear mongering, give people a break in between panic attacks. if you push them too hard and keep them keyed up all the time, they burn out or start to accept what it is you wanted them to be afraid off all this time.
HotWingConspiracy: Rubio is a bit out of his element. This guy is a flash in the pan gimmick and will be crushed in a primary.
DeathBySmiley: Rubio Frothing?Rick Santorum is no longer the favorite of the anti-gays, I see.
Weaver95: Past a certain point, all the crying and fearmongering just doesn't work anymore - not even on the most die hard true believer. human nature is that you can only be afraid for so long before you either 1. snap and go completely bug f*ck insane or 2. readjust to the fear and learn to live with it until it becomes the 'new normal'.

rynthetyn: And he went to a state school for undergrad, which means that portion of his education was heavily subsidized by Florida taxpayers. Of course, the fact that he went to U of Miami for law school means his grades and LSAT scores probably weren't good enough to get into either UF Law or the Florida politician wannabe backup school, FSU. Nobody who has political ambitions in Florida goes anywhere other than UF or FSU law school unless they're to dumb to get into UF or FSU.
Philip Francis Queeg: Serious Black: Is Rubio the new Santorum?
He's more the new Rick Perry.
What? He's gonna treat the country like his personal ATM?
Bill the unknowing: While the passing of Immigration Reform will do nothing immediately for Republican prospects, non-passage will leave them in the same hole that they were in the last election, possibly worse. So at what point do the see the modestly-priced painting on their wall? It's not the only Hispanic issue but it's significant enough that it will guarantee them continuing problems if they don't confront it. Whether Rubio is used as a punching bag for either side is hard to say - I think he's got all the depth of thought on ANY subject of said brown paper bag. But Rubio or not, Republicans will continue to face the issue - so Dems can continue to push slowly but inexorably to the eventual conclusion; continuing to define the terms of any legislation should be in their corner. The Republicans should be wanting to move faster to agree on SOMETHING to take this chess piece off the table - the longer they wait, the less they'll get out of it.
