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.
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.

This week in Michigan enough Tea Party delegates showed up at a Republican meeting to elect delegates to the party's nominating convention for the election in November to defeat the current Republican party chairman's bid to be elected a delegate. This strikes me as a cataclysmic event for the...

Rubio is like the rest of the Republitard jerks. He wants to do away with medicare by setting the voucher to the cost of living instead of to the rise in health costs. Other countries that use the voucher system do not do that, but rather have a set percentage of income from the elderly that goes...

Is the Rubio Campaign finished?Marco Rubio is cancelling appearances across Louisiana, Idaho, and other areas. Is this a signal that he's finally ready to throw in the towel or is he concentration all funds on trying to win Florida?

Who was the big winner of the Iowa Caucus?On the Democratic Side, I think Bernie Sanders and his supporters are extremely happy that they hung right in there with Hillary. With O'Malley dropping out, he could actually "Win," but it was a virtual tie.On the Republican side, the easy answer...
