Did the teabaggers try to pull this crap with Scott Brown?

Hispanic votes? We don't need no Hispanic votes!

The repubs could actually lose Florida if they decide to thoroughly dick over the state's Cubans. But, whatever. Pray continue with your extended political suicide.

Am I reading this wrong, or has this played out about as badly as possible for Rubio? By getting the Senate to pass the bill, he can get that hung around his neck by the GOP base, but since the House will kill it, no one in the general is going to give him any credit for it. No?

It's not just the Cubans, it's the growing non-Cuban Hispanics that are making Florida home.  They were a big reason why Obama won Florida last year; pissing them off might not be wise at all for Florida GOPers.

If they'd only change their name to the Chai Party (the most common word for Tea in the world), I'm sure they'd find great sponsorship from some really big country with lots of people.
 
2013-07-17 01:40:53 PM  
But, to be fair, how could any adult possibly know that spoiling a dumb child by giving it everything it wants whenever a tantrum is thrown would result in worse, more unreasonable behavior?
 
2013-07-17 01:42:10 PM  
As a Cuban living in Miami, and a liberal, um....thanks, I guess, Tea Party?

Exactly.  Florida's Cuban community isn't always on the same page as Latinos from other countries.  And the Cuban demographic is no longer dominant here.

WTF!?! How did this get to be about me?

Not at all surprising.  After all, they're still trying to impeach Obama.

Being that stupid has to hurt.  It just has to.

What happened? I thought he was a Tea Party darling. I thought supporting him showed that the Tea Party wasn't bigoted towards Latinos. I guess he just learned that you never stick your dick in crazy.
 
2013-07-17 01:44:57 PM  
Did they not know he's Hispanic?

Worse, the majority of them are either legal immigrants or born here but identify as Hispanic.  Again, as much as the Florida GOP would love to enact some voting restrictions, it would be very unwise to start alienating the Hispanics in the next few years.  Florida might stay solid blue for a generation or two if Florida Republicans continue with the derp.

The inherent paradox of of teabagger politics, if the people they send to Washington do anything they are messing up because their desire is to block all governance.

The only happy teabagger appointment would be "vacant".

I, for one, wouldn't mind being offered teateas daily.

Well..he's Latino.  What did they expect?  To support legislation to round up all of us beaners and shoot us over the border in a cannon?  He was intrinsically going to be somewhat sensible.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.

The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Quickly looking at his voting record, this was really the only place he's strayed.  So, of course, they want his arse.

Is this the standard now, to just green articles with headlines copied directly from said article?
 
2013-07-17 02:04:16 PM  
Rubio had this coming. He outflanked Charlie Crist during the Republican primary because Crist had the gall to compromise with the Dems on something. Who would have thought that running as the "more conservative than you" republican would come back to bite him in the ass as soon as he took one step away from the far right line. Reap what you sow asshole.

Yeah, he's been a pretty huge prick otherwise.  I've written to his office a number of times to register my dissatisfaction (and his responses have been equally prickish).

But it's this same mentality that prevents any compromise from Republicans.

Didn't their beloved St. Reagan sign a full-on amnesty bill?  Don't they subscribe to his teachings?

Many conservatives also claim to love Jesus, and yet they have no problem denying his actual teachings and history.  You think Reagan is immune?

FTFA "KrisAnne Hall says she and a group of other conservatives are helping draft legislation that would allow senators in the state to face recall elections"

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but Rubio is a US Senator.  Yes, he represents Florida, but he is part of the US government.  So how does legislation in Florida affect federal election law?  I could understand it for state Representatives and Senators, but not federal.

Better to say the majority, leaves room for those that come to US illegally and take up work in Florida.

I had the idea of starting a Super PAC with the stated goal of getting the moast conservative guy elected. Could easily raise money through facebook and fw:FW:fw: emails. Then spend money on hookers consultants and running attack ads against all the "sane" conservatives  to primary them out and have the most bat-guano insane guy on the R side of the ballot.
