  •  Rubio is not qualified for President, we should (12+ / 0-)

    stop talking about him as if he were.

    no gravitas, no experience and a panderer

    •  I'm inclined to agre (10+ / 0-)

      But for these proofs to the contrary:

      Reagan
      Bush II

      Ok, both had been governors of major states. But as Obama proved, being a one term senator ain't nothing, and he'll have more experience at it than Obama did in '08. What these three have in common, though, is that they're all buffoons. Two of whom became president. So let's not discount his odds yet.

      I prefer for the GOP candidates for President to be complete jokes.

    •  Freepers also think Rubio's a panderer (0+ / 0-)
      You know, they hate liberal lukewarm RINOs more than the hate anyone. The GOP is a crowd of doofuses and this was a dooofus moment.

      They have no footing - including Rubio and definitely including Rubio.

      If the GOP hasn’t figured out tha twith their RINOs they can’t get over a moment like this then why are they in charge of the only opposition?

      It’s their fault all of this is happening.

      Rubio stands for nothing conservative yet he’s the favorite? Who is he? He has no debate skills. He can talk talk talk, so what?

      He taped the SOTU response just before going on. Why did he so it twice, wearing himself out to the point he couldn’t even be properly prepared? What was more important than being prepared for the SOTU rebuttal?

      That he tape it in SPANISH first.

      He is a first class panderer and he is our favorite. Favorite what? Replacement for McCain?

      Is there any way we can get serious?

      And their live reaction to that water bottle lunge:
      Good grief, what's going on with Marco Rubio? He seems like a nervous wreck... Wiping his mouth many times and frantically grabbing for that water bottle... Yikes. Perhaps he has a cold...
      OMG did you see that water thing? That looked really bad. OMG
      Rubio has some mental problem with his mouth? He lost it when he grabbed that stupid bottle of water.
