Both Paul and Rubio have bright futures. They are both articulate about the hope in the conservative message. If they both run in 2016, it will be a great race! Of course a Rubio - Paul ticket would be even better in my opinion.

Why do you all like Rubio so much? He's the "establishment candidate"; he's a RINO; he's a fortunate son of immigants who came to this country ostensibly to make it theirs. But Rubio has taken as his main focus the granting of amnesty to tens of millions of foreign national gate-crashers which will most likely bring down this (supposedly also his) country. And don't tell me this is just an honest effort to "do something" about the problem. He has been advocating for illegals and betraying the citizens who elected him ever since he was in politics, first here in Florida, and now on the national stage. Rubio loves himself and cares nothing about you. Sure has pulled the wool over a lot of eyes.

Doesn't really matter in my opinion, I do think Rubio would have a better chance of winning as the top of the ticket. Rubio is a much better natural communicator and Paul would be great as the bulldog VP.

As I said in an earlier post, he won't win, because all the illegals he is obsessed with waving in will vote fraudulently for the Democrats. The Hispandering doesn't pay off if you are Republican. History has shown us that.

Responding to a presidential State of the Union speech is often a thankless task. Following the president's act, which oozes prestige and historic significance, almost always makes the next guy seem small and trivial by comparison. As it goes, the designated member of the opposition party is typically holed up in a room somewhere with little more than a camera, some lights and a teleprompter.  The rejoinder he or she offers is almost always instantly forgotten; when it's not, it's usually for the wrong reasons.  Sen. Marco Rubio broke the mold last night.  He delivered a substantive, relatable and...
