Marco Rubio Tells It Like It Is
— andy

From today's senate debate on the debt ceiling. I particularly like the part where he pwns my senior senator Lurch Kerry (Dumbass-MA).

It's about 15 minutes long and worth every second.

Video below the fold via K-Lo at NRO.

3 That last comment is childish. Obama inherited 4 wars and and a depression from George Bosh. Come on people, Obama is trying to fix these things and the GOP is doing everything to make him look bad all for only politics. Boehnor is pathetic and President Obama is the only adolt in the room. Wise up people and lets suppport the Presadent !!!!!!!

Rubio will be POTUS at some point.

Just wanted to get myself on record.  I know, I know, a bold and brave prediction.

For everyone who yearns for the next Reagan, and has been frustrated in trying to find him, your search is over.

Now we can focus on finding the next Michael Jordan.  That might be a bit tougher.

Now Senator Rubio, isn't there a big difference between silly electoral posturing like Sen. Obama did when he shot off his mouth about opposing raising the debt limt while knowing his words were just to impress the peons, and voting against raising the debt limit now when that vote might actually mean something?

Posted by: Delta Smelt at July 30, 2011 03:37 PM (dWPyO)

28 The biggest weakness of the GOP has always been flinching in debate due to a sorry history of beat downs by the MFM on behalf of the commiecrats.
The whining about not getting our message out becomes a self fulfilling prophecy with the establishment repubs because they shrink from confrontation.

Rubio can articulate the Conservative message like no one since Reagan.
It was a beautiful thing to watch him toss Kerry aside like a 2nd team blocker for Obama/Reid.
He is fearless in debate and is just exactly what is needed Right Now.

36 He's fearless without angry and he's direct without being disagreeable. Even Kerry seemed surprised he was allowing them to debate the issue. Exactly the kind of guy we need right now, which is of course why we have McConnell instead.

Senator Rubio, my Senator, makes me so proud (for once) to be living in Floriduh. It has been a long drought since I was excited to vote for someone.

I loved every single minute of his speech. He puts the rest of DC to shame.

Wouldn't you like to see him vs Obama in a debate? Heck, Ryan vs Obama in a debate. Perry vs Obama in a debate. I would love every single minute of that as well.

The smack-down of John Kerry was spectacular, and he did it without batting an eyelash or pausing to think hard, or say, uh,uh,uh where's my teleprompter. I love Rubio.

The best line, and there were many, was on "compromise" and talking about Obama's non-plan: "How can you compromise with no plan?"

Whatever Yankee. Heh.

A bit, some resentment (some well deserved) of the northerners coming down here and objecting to how things are done here.  ( go back to your socialist paradise iow)

This really isn't north vs. south in my humble opinion.  Same thing goes on in Colorado with all the Californians moving in.

Fact is,  with the advent of air conditioning....(how it has become common anyway) this is a pretty desirable place to live.  It will only grow.

But doesn't Boehner then have to get it through the house? 

I'd trust Boehner to negotiate more than McConnell....and that ain't saying much.

Too true. Also McConnell, being a senator, loves the idea of compromise within the Senate, without considering whether it hurts the House.

Boehner and Pelosi could have also sent their aides. We'll (obviously) know eventually.

202 >>But doesn't Boehner then have to get it through the house? Yep. But he can say that this is the best McConnell could get for them. I'm sure he knows he's going to lose some conservatives with any compromise. He's counting on Obama and the Dems to get some of the more moderate Dems to come around to any deal he gives approval of. We are in the Kabuki stage of our democracy.

203 OT: Tentative deal:

"President gets full increase (up to 2.8T). Boehner gets his cuts. Not finalized, but here's the framework tinyurl.com/3p6pra5"

If this is true, Boehner has to ask the Conference before he proceeds.

207 >>Debt ceiling increase of up to $2.8 trillion Spending cuts of roughly $1 trillion Special committee to recommend cuts of $1.8 trillion (or whatever it takes to add up to the total of the debt ceiling increase) Committee must make recommendations before Thanksgiving recess If Congress does not approve those cuts by late December, automatic across-the-board cuts go into effect, including cuts to Defense and Medicare. Yep. Pretty much what I thought.

208 "Pablo and Kerry would have responded

In debt ceiling bills the Republicans plan was to take the very air our children breathe and fill it full of toxins , that's the republicans contribution to a bill.

Pelosi said it , we the Party repeat  it."


Uh, what the hell are you talking about, willow? Rubio did a fabulous job, as he usually does. He just missed a chance to truly spike the ball, is all.

See, Kerry is talking about the DOOM of not increasing the ceiling while he's voted against doing it twice this week. That's one of those "I've got this thing and it's fucking golden." moments. I would hope Rubio is having a "Damn, I wish I'd said that!" moment.

It's still interesting that you cannot find confirmation outside of ABC News. Are they sure? Or is this like the NYT debt deal reporting?

217 I like how Lurch basically admits that Obama's vote back then was basically political grandstanding and nothing more.  Wish Rubio would have asked, point blank, if that's what Lurch believed that vote to be.
