Your daily dose of Marco Rubio: his speech at the Reagan Library

What’s the matter, bunky? The “Washington blues” have you down? Depressed from having a president with no understanding of basic economics or economic history, no love for or even comprehension of the nation he leads, and and an attitude toward our unemployment problem worthy of Versailles in 1789? Ready to pull your hair out at the thought of having Vice President Biden a total buffoon represent us at the court of our chief rivals?

Well, cheer up! I have just what you need!

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) spoke at the Reagan Library yesterday. The major part of the address was on the proper role of government, on which he was solid in my book. Then he turned to one of his favorite topics, the nature of the United States and of American exceptionalism, where he scores a home-run. Enjoy.

Am I mistaken, or did he choke up a bit with emotion there at the end?

    I saw his rescue of Lady Reagan on Fox today. I think it enhances him personally, but am sad Fox felt compelled to run the tape of the “fall.” It was simply a useless attempt at sensationalism that failed miserably. I thought Megan had more class than that.

    As far as Rubio goes, I hope he would consider running as the mate to whomever gets the Repub nomination but am afraid he won’t. And four more years in D.C. will not be good for him, either, as a Representative because it will leave open every vote to question and divide who are his supporters now.

    But great speech! And at least for right now he lives it.

    The anti Obama. Pro United States. Anti Zimbabwe. How sweet it could be if this country could be fundamentally re transformed before it becomes 51% populated by mewling morons led by articulate idiots. Thanks you Marco.

    It is embarrassing to watch Obama speak when compared to Rubio.

    Rubio is a speaker. Obama is an orator. Obama “acts out” what is in front of him on the teleprompter. He uses flourishes, affects & motions, but it all rings false, rehearsed, and simply not genuine. He doesn’t believe what he says.

    Rubio is speaking what he knows, believes and lives. That is why is does not sound like a script, It isn’t. Every word is real. It is from him and his beliefs and experiences.

    Debates are not scripted and there are no teleprompters.

    Rubio would embarrass Obama in a debate. He would make him look like the amateur he truly is.

    If they’ve got the film, they’ll probably run it, ‘cept a plane crash, or a wing walker falling to his death…oops, scratch that.

    I hope we are looking at a future president of the United States. He impresses me more each time I see him!

  6. Great White Rat says:

    Notice how Rubio always focuses on America, and never on himself. You’ll never hear any nonsense about how if you elect him, the oceans will cease to rise.

    There is no one, no one, on the political scene today who expresses the conservative message better than Senator Rubio.

    It’s so appropriate that he’s speaking at the Reagan Library. He’s Reagan’s philosophical and spiritual heir. Can’t wait for the day he moves into the White House.

    Right on, GWR. Its called leadership.

    Great speech, great man. We need more like him in government……..
