Who knew? Marco Rubio is running against Rachel Maddow.....
from HuffPost:



Florida Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio continued his war of words with Rachel Maddow this week with a new web video tweaking the MSNBC host.

Here's the backstory: Last week, Rubio's camp rolled out a one-minute ad making the case that his economic plan "is right" as evidenced by the fact that "Maddow thinks it's wrong." After the release of the spot, it didn't take long for Maddow to fire back.

"Mr. Rubio's new commercial is all about the economy, which makes sense, because he is running in Florida where the economy is really very, very bad," Maddow said on her show. "Unemployment in Florida stands at 11.4 percent, higher than the national average. Foreclosures up nearly 10 percent in the first half of this year in Florida, higher than the national average. And Florida's most recent state budget needed a rescue from federal stimulus funds, which, of course, Marco Rubio opposes. These are troubled times, time to call for big ideas, detail arguments, facts."

In his new ad Rubio fired back: "And now, Rachel Maddow responds by discussing the Obama-Crist economic record for Florida..." text reads on top of footage of the news program. "But if you are ready for some real change ... Send Marco to Washington and he'll be a check-and-balance against Obama and his policies." .........(more)

1. Rubio better watch out. He's baiting someone
who's a lot smarter than himself.

She sure scares the crap out of those conservative white boys. I'm guessing this says something about their misogyny: they're scared to death of such a smaaaart woman!

Go Rachel!

5. Minor correction....
I despise Rubio, but he's no "white boy". Ultra conservative, yes; misogynist, yes; scary and hateful, yes. He might portray himself as a "white boy" and play in their sandbox, but he's a first-generation Cuban American. And yeah, Rachel is way out of his league in brain power and class.

7. I don't understand please please please explain
why do these republicans running for senator think that IF (and that's a big IF) they should get to go to Washington they are going to single handedly change everything, when Obama is having a hard time getting the cooperation of congress and HE IS THE PRESIDENT. Do these dumb bunnies think senator means one up on the president. Must be. Angle and Paul think so also and just about every one of the republicans are hawking that. Who needs those type of dumb nutsos in office.

8. They absolutely know they are not going to do any such thing...
but if they think it will get your vote, they will be more than happy to tell you they are going to "change everything". :puke:
