    America doesn't need transforming. And you're right Pol, look at all of the people who want to move here and enjoy what we have.

    Can I quote that in my signature?

    MIAMI (AP) — Sen. Marco Rubio is telling his top donors that he is running for president because he feels "uniquely qualified" to pitch his Republican Party as one that will defend the American Dream.

    The first-term Republican from Florida told his biggest backers on a conference call on Monday that he sees the coming presidential campaign as a choice between the past and the future. In a swipe at Democratic rival Hillary Rodham Clinton, Rubio said the former first lady "is a leader from yesterday."

    Rubio says he has always felt the United States is about tomorrow.


    Does he have a chance?
    Only if we've given up on sovereignty. Rubios shown his colors on that ussue.
    C.T.L.W. You figure it out

    Rubio seems to poll very well with women.
    I think his strongest attribute is foreign affairs. And the way things are going that might be what this election will hinge on
    He is quite an articulate speaker

    I don't know. Rubio will first have to define for the nation "what IS the American Dream"?

But that "dream" has become so muddied over the years and more difficult to obtain even for those of us who put in a 40-hour work week.

    So, his first challenge will have to be articulating exact what that "dream" is and how the Average Joe can turn it into reality. (Translation: Economic policy) If he's able to clearly define this dream, he would have at least gotten over one hurdle. His second: Open up that so-called "big tent" Republicans claim to possess. Right now, HIS party doesn't appear to embrace all comers.
    good thought.
    we know what the Dems offer, class warfare ( and to be fair I'm sick of the 1%'rs getting everything ).

    The trick for me is seeing more then class envy, or top heavy taxation to 'equalize' -
    there has to be more then just simple re-distribution of income.
    How exactly this is done??...if anyone can flesh out some ideas they would get my rapt attention

Secondly, the President doesn't get elected to fulfill dreams. I'd rather know what he plans to do to make DC less dysfunctional, how he's going to keep us safe, and what he's going to do to keep Isis out, and all of that.
    i'm with you on the DC dysfunction.
    Hyper-partisanship in place of ability to actually get anything done is a big issue.

    Lol, he has no chance of winning. Why Republicans even put these kind up is beyond me. They're the John Edwards of the Republican party. They look good on paper, but they're irrelevant to the country's politics in the grand scheme of things.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Agree to disagree, but his 2013 anti-gay voting pattern will be the elephant in the room that squashes his chances in the current national climate.
