    Credit where credit is due…Schultz absolutely nails it, Rubio sounds like a damn fool. Now I see how and why Rubio endorsed that ridiculous Ryan proposal which President Obama noted would result in seniors paying thousands more for medical care so that millionaires would get a tax break which they don’t need and won’t help the economy. People like Rubio are what’s wrong with DC, talking loudly yet displaying not a lick of sense. Viva Obama!

    INDEED..PSYCHO TALK…IF PERRY GETS NOMINATION…I THINK HE WILL RUN EITHER PALIN OR RUBIO FOR VP…RUBIO IS STILL ON THE BLEACHERS!

      Sue, I think you are correct about Rubio being a possibility, but even Perry is smart enough to realize that the half term governor would be even a bigger disaster for the ticket than she was in 2008 for McCain. He would need to go for an establishment running mate to tone his craziness down.

        SHE PULLS IN A CROWD AND PERRY ISN’T THAT SMART. HE’S A HOTHEAD LIKE MCCAIN…TOO DUMB TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!

    I wonder how many people in that Reagan library audience collect a Social Security check?

    My mother (a Fox News aficionada) went through a spell of “Obama is a socialist” rantings. Finally, I said, “Since you feel so strongly about this, let’s calculate how much you have received in Social Security in, say, the last 5 years, and then we’ll pull that money from your accounts and send it back to Washington. That will show you really mean what you say.”

    That was the last I heard of that. Now she will say, “That Obama has a nice smile.” (The highest compliment she gives to a politician)

      Love it Brian! Conceding that the President has a “nice smile” ….. well, it looks like your mother is making progress!

      Brian, we should tell them all that, okay give up your Social Security, send it back to Washington. Give up your Medicare. Alot of these people are fuel by one thing and one thing only, Barack Obama is a Black Man.

    I am truly concerned about all these changes in the states’ voting laws….other than Rev AL…no one one is talking about them….i plan to call the City Commissioners Office today here in Philadelphia to see if PA has made any changes that might effect how we vote here….i had read that there were changes but i am not clear on it….

    i walk with a cane so although i still have pretty steps …they are slower now…hahaha…but i plan to make sure everyone on my block is registered to vote…and that if there are changes in the law that they know about it….i also have a email list….which i plan to do the same…to encourage folks to get involved and register their neighbors…..family and friends

    WE ARE THE CHANGE THAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR…

      Make sure you and everyone you know vote by mail. Even if you take it to your local voting place. I like that CA’s Democrats are trying to increase voting by mail.

    I am ashamed to say Rubio is from Miami… And they freakin’ love him down here.

      Olivia, believe it or not they once loved Sarah Palin in Alaska. Now I think more dislike her than like her. Just like America. So Rubio true color will come to the light to the people of Miami.

        Ironically, the ones who love him the most are the old-school Cuban grandmas who think he is just so smart and handsome. Mind you, they live exclusively off of the Medicare and Medicaid which he is looking to slash. It just blows my mind… VIVA OBAMA 2012

    Rubio and those who espouse his theories are idiots. All these people who scream President Obama is a socialist, Social Security and Medicare are ponzi schemes and endorse the Paul Ryan Kill The Medicare should give up their SS and Medicare benefits. You level hate at the programs and the one person who is trying to save them and keep them solvent for decades to come; then give up your benefits. Pull the money from your bank account and return it to the Federal Government. When you’re suffering and drowning, we’ll see how much you love the GOP theory in practice then.
