    Okay if you want to double down on your lying posts, have at it. Your hyperpartisanship is to be applauded, and your lying post is noted twice.

    I guess I assumed that the hyperpartisans who read a post understand what the word "image" means in political campaigning, but I should know that some are just too clouded by their own partisanship the knees just jerk naturally.

    It's rare that such things are entirely a one-way street. Usually the couple bears responsibility in a failed relationship - it's not all one's fault while the other remains pristine and pure.



    The Obama's also have great family photos. I guess that means Obama is a great president by your reckoning.
    Means they're photogenic - both the Obama family and the Rubio family. I know this is rough for ya, but give it a try.

    Especially against the much older and frail McCain. Just like it helped Kennedy against Nixon, and Clinton against Dole.

    Yeah, remember the Democrats scurrilous campaign in 2008 was that McCain probably wouldn't survive his first term.

    So it's Hillary's fault Bill cheated on her. Wow, I'm shocked to see a conservative say this.

    Means they're photogenic - both the Obama family and the Rubio family. I know this is rough for ya, but give it a try.
    Someone who finds a failed marital relationship MOST troubling and disqualifying would (if they are consistent) find the reverse MOST qualifying as a presidential attribute. Which is what vesper actually indicated by posting a photo of Rubio's family.

    I said it bothered ME she stayed with him because what he did to her IMO was abusive. I never said it disqualified her.
    And yes Obama's family pictures over the years have been very nice also.

    And the one of Rubio and his wife and son is adorable

    I do. That helped them justify the hatred of Palin.

    You said it was most troubling, even more so than her ideology, and then went on to blame Hillary for the marital troubles of her friend.

    Mornin JM Exactly visuals.....and like BO. Rubio is young, and energetic. Even moreso than BO since Rubio is only 43. He has to just place in Iowa. Even though Iowans didn't think he was to conservative. They did give him high marks.

    Rubio will be able to make up that ground in New Hampshire where more than likely he will win it being more moderate. (that's with who is in now for the GOP)

    Also the thing is due to the Invisible primary.....Donors have been giving Rubio's some nods.




    Another way is to talk to Republican voters directly or at least to poll them, as The Des Moines Register and Bloomberg Politics recently did in Iowa. That poll asked potential Republican caucusgoers whether they saw each of their candidates as “too conservative,” “too moderate” or “just right.” I’ve re-created that data below, removing voters who said they weren’t sure about the candidate from the sample.



    Rubio and Walker, being lesser known, have more chance to shape their image. And they can make some electability arguments of their own. In Rubio’s case, it’s about being a Hispanic candidate from a swing state with a good life story; in Walker’s, it’s about having been elected in a blue-leaning swing state three times in four years.....snip~
