    Even on a slow news day I would think that there would be something more significant on which an editorial cartoonist could ply his trade.

    All you right-wingnuts are really squirming. Rubio was supposed to be the hope of the “new” elephant party – less vicious and prone to name-calling in place of civility and logic. Looks like he’s representative of the party alright – slurping right-wing tea on television.

    “I rather have someone sipping tea than a butt banging, dope smoking, constitution trashing left wing fairy.”

    Don’t hold back. Tell us how you really feel.

    I’m going out on a limb – but my friend,s favorite commercial lately has Flo (Progressive Ins. ) confronting two lying insurance salesman and their pants literally are on fire. My friend keeps walking around saying “no mas panto-lomas” and laughing… I haven’t seen the commercial myself…this could be a take off on it…

    Aha – I was wondering why that speech started to make me nauseous. Why don’t the People see through that BS?

    I challenge anyone to name one single lie that Rubio told. cue crickets

    I work for a living, so I couldn’t reply right away.

    A) Obama has, through his policies, tried to destroy Free Enterprise since he first became a Community Organizer.

    B) Each proposal Obama made in his speech requires Government programs (more taxation) to implement.

    C) The housing debacle was caused by banks being forced to give loans to unqualified people, by regulations set forth by Democrats…and Community Organizers. Bush called for investigations into the Community Redevelopment Act processes, but since he wasn’t Emperor, didn’t mandate it unilaterally.

    D) In 1950, only a few dozen people fell into the top tax bracket, and many of them kept their funds in Swiss banks and had accountants to help them avoid paying the full load. The work ethic was far better then, and Welfare dependency was minuscule compared to now. Funny, though, how you cited the 50s as a happy place, when most Libs decry the horrors of that time.

    E) Companies pass on increased costs from regs and taxes…to the consumer. They lay off or reduce hours when they can’t keep their profit margins steady. Remember: profits are what make wages possible.

    F) AGW has no connection to scientific fact.

    G) He didn’t say it…but that’s what he DID. (remember, Rubio wrote his talk before the speech)

    H) Rubio’s parents have lived in a home for many years. It increased in value over time. A $30,000 house in the 1960s would be worth over $500,000 today, in many markets. Inflation, folks.

    I) The recession of 1959-61 negates your ‘point’.

    J) Interesting supposition, seeing that Congress has been looting both systems for nearly 50 years, now.

    K) Straw man argument.

    L) He’s talking about the 10-year deficit total, just as Dear Leader constantly does. National Defense is a Constitutionally recognized expenditure. And, confiscating the whole of upper-income earners’ wealth would run the gov’t for about, what?…6 or 7 days?

    M) The main reason is that they can’t afford to stay in business if they have more employees, between the AHA requirements and other regulations.

    N) Ryan’s budget does no such thing. Learn to read.

    O) See above answer.

    P) Obama has already gutted Medicare of over $700B. You like that???

    Q) Tell the people in Iran, who’s cries for liberty were ignored by this President, if they’d like a drone attack on Ahmadinejad. We’ve never been threatened when an enemy thought we were too strong.

    R) Don’t listen very well, do you?

    S) Our military spending is higher because we subsidize/protect other nations’ defense. Obama is threatening to lay off necessary employees as a tactic to force his devastating policies.

    T) Republicans didn’t crash the economy. Dodd-Frank and company were at the helm.

    U) Dems filibustered most of Bush’s court picks, or refused to even advise or consent. The solutions proffered by the Libs are destructive to our economy and our Country.

    K) His neighborhood consists mostly of 1950s tract houses, valued between 120-130K. The big houses at the end of the block, built in 2005, sell for more. He grew up in an ordinary neighborhood, and understands what it means to work for a living. Obama understands how to scam for a living.

    T) That should have been a comma instead of a dash. Those two, with their sweetheart ‘Friends of Angelo’ mortgage deals, kept investigations at bay. Banks don’t make bad loans because of greed: they sell off packaged mortgage ‘securities’ to try to get rid of the loans they were forced to make. I never mentioned minorities. Only unqualified ‘buyers’. Racist.

    I have to leave for work soon. Have a nice time in Mom’s basement.
