    What have we learned about Rubio and Cruz?

    Have they talked about their records in office?
    Have they talked about the issues they came upon in office, and how they solved them?
    When you go for a job interview, think about all the questions that you are asked by a potential employer, like your job experiences. The employer doesn't just want you to tell them what your title was, and where you worked. They want to know what positive difference you made for the company.

    They would also ask how you could do your current job, while going around the country hawking for a new job?

    If you are voting age, then you know how goes an interview,

    They are both willing to fall to the same smear tactics to stop Trump that have been hallmarks of Democratic campaigns for years.

      So, they are more representative of the democratic party, than the republican party. Yet, they say that Trump is the one not representing the true republican party. Interesting

    I honestly don't see the appeal of either one of them.

    Rubio is your typical political hack with no real power and who will always be the tool of the GOP's interest groups. He's a Gen-Xer who came from nowhere and who knows nothing of economics, war or statecraft. He got into politics too early in life in my opinion. The price he's paid is that he can never venture a true opinion or do anything he wants as a politician.

    Cruz is not a natural-born US Citizen and so should be disqualified from the presidency. Both he and Rubio are dishonoring their parents who were reform supporters in Cuba in the 1950s and who did not support the dictator whom Castro overthrew. Like Rubio, in order to get elected fellow Gen-Xer Cruz had to become a political hack. He hung around Texas people, developed a weird contrived Texas accent. But basically he's just part of the Houston new money crowd. Unlike Rubio, he's better connected with businessmen, political leaders. He had attended Princeton and Harvard. He worked a couple of years as a lawyer while still jumping on a political bandwagon. His record as a senator is that of someone trying to steal headlines and make a name for himself in politics without actually doing anything. I'd like to think he knows a few practical things about legislation. He's made it clear that he wants to destroy the environment and so he's possibly the most dangerous candidate. He's unelectable against Clinton.
