Romney Tries to Woo Latino Votes By Using the Possibility of Rubio as VP

Mis-informed Mitt really wants me to believe that he is seriously considering Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio for a running mate.

No, I don't believe it for a second. Although, Rubio has a great following in the Hispanic community, he's only been in the Senate for two years and he's only forty one years old.

Picking Rubio may blow up in his face like Palin did for McCain. It is almost like a Groundhog's Day disaster.  Senator Rubio, though probably infinitely more informed on the issues than the former Duh Governor from Alaska, Palin, he has his share of baggage that the Romney camp will probably not want to deal with at this stage of the game.

Mittens has yet to answer questions about his stance on immigration. Even top Republicans are asking him to make a stand, any stand, at this point.
I mean, at least an honest answer to show that he has thoughts on the subject.  He is kind of damned no matter what,  anyway, if he picks  Rubio, it will look like a ploy to pander to the Latino community and they can see through that just would't look good.

During this vetting process, Romney and camp, need to find out if the stories about Rubio embellishing his family's past are true.  His stories about his Cuban exile parents seem to change and morph with every speaking engagement.  I mean if he is lying about that, what else is he lying about?

Marco Rubio's been caught in a pickle when it comes to lying. That ego is something else and it shows that everything shiny isn't gold.
The Washington Post dug up some dirt on Rubio concerning a loan that he didn't disclose when he was supposed to and he has run up expenses on the Republican Party Florida Credit card. It seems that he has champagne tastes with the taxpayers' dollars. 
You know that more than certain, that strip joint workers have been paid handsomely through Floridian tax money.

Mitt has come to his defense, but I'm sure thats his "out" from Senator Rubio as a serious VP choice.
It's really too much drama from a person that says he's not even interested in the V.P. position.

Besides, will Mittens really want to alienate the good old boys in the Republican network with such a potentially "controversial" choice?

Yeah Right!

John Boehner Blames Obama For Derailing Dream Act After He Stalled Dream Act-Style Bill

Tsk, tsk Mr. Boehner....

I assume from his actions and past statements that Mr."Speaker of the House" Boehner is like most of the 1 percenter folks who believe that the average American doesn't have a clue.
I think that is one of the only reasons that old "Bone-Head" Boehner would utter his latest crazy such a thing.

Now let's be up front about the facts, Bone Head. The President has tried to push the Dream Act since he's been in office.  Your good ole boys shot  him down in 2010 with an unified show of misguided unity.   Now, for the "I'm for the rich" buttholes that they are, the president's latest decision is now an issue.

The Republicans screaming foul because they've been outwitted and  "I Shed A Thousand Tears" Boehner is upset that the President took the high road and back-doored his ass on this issue.  If the House wasn't going to try the bi-partisan route, then he figured out another way to get some sort of resolution on the table, after all, people's futures and lives are in the balance.  You can't go forward, if you are stuck by your past.

Unfortunately, as usual, folks are being caught in the politcal crossfire. This particular time it involves the Latino community.

Boehner says we are operating in a hostile political enviroment. Really????

Are you referring to the hostile political climate that you, the Congress, Teapublicans, and big corporate lobbyists have created?  Basically, the groups that are preventing ordinary, hard-working Americans from getting ahead.

What did we average American folks in the 99 percent, ever do to the 1 percent that causes them to support the constant sticking in the ass?

How much more money and power do you and your special interest folks need to take to be completely satisfied?

When is enough enough?

When will they realize that eventually the majority will get tired of being taken advantage of and their position will be threatened by the masses? 

You can't keep screwing up most of the population without consequences.

I'm really more disgusted with Boehner because of his humble background. He grew up poor, so you would think that his uppity ass would be more sensitive to the plight of the poor.

But then again, when your pockets have been stuffed like a high-priced whore during convention weekend, you kinda forget those things.

Rodney King....RIP

Rodney King, the man who was thrown into the middle of a race war in the 1990's has passed away.

Mr. King was always uncomfortable with being in the spot light and he preferred not to be used by the media or by black folks.   He become the front and the back story of racial tension not just in Los Angeles but across the nation and world.

So, with Mr. King's passing, let's see what has changed in the twenty plus years since that horrific beating... NOTHING!!
That monumental ass whipping he was given by those four police officers did nothing for any minorities' future, especially blacks.

I've read Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who contrary to popular white belief, aren't the national spokes persons for black folks, now use Trayvon Martin as a more modern example of unjustice against minority males.   I know, anything to stay relevant gentlemen and in the public eye.

My father, who is now close to eighty years old, was suffering before Rodney, with a couple of unwarranted police beat downs of his own in the Fifties and Sixties.
My personal belief is that these incidents have become more worse and more violent, so much for "post racial" harmony.

Officers will shoot first and answer questions later.  
The popular response, after some police sponsered mischief has gone down is usually, "I thought he had a gun".   It's never one shot, these officers act like b-level Rambos and will now unload a whole clip on your ass! These types of officers never wait for an incident to escalate, its usually a display of force first, with a baton or taser, and then the inevitable shooting.
Officers really have that shit backwards!

At every level, across the nation, the lack of control and respect is so blatant now.
Heaven forbid, an incident happens in the state of Florida, where it seems to be open season on minorities.  It seems, each time these cases come up, there is almost certain to be an aquittal of the officer or even civilian, no matter what the circumstances.
Or, if the victim is lucky enough to survive a police assault and lives, they are sentenced to twenty years in prison -  right, state of New York? 
New York, where an officer went into into a military decorated veteran retiree's home, said he was "out of control", though he could barely move due to various illnesses, and shot him to death.

Yes, America, home of the free and land of the brave - nothing has changed too much on our shores.

Minorities are still getting it in the ass  with police approved gunfire!!!
