Zdravko, I fully agree with you and BTW we share the same lifecycle curve: born in a communist country, travelled and lived under other socialist and semi-capitalist regimes. Rubio's speech was dripping of so much of self-putty and compassion that even his voice got lost in the process. I am afraid that we look forward to a number of second-terms, intention completely lost on the RINOs...

In an earlier era, Dr. Benjamin Carson's speech before the National Prayer Breakfast last week would have been a really big deal rather than mere fodder for a brief squall on Twitter and cable news.

Born in crushing poverty to an illiterate single mother dedicated to seeing her children succeed, Carson became the head of the department of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins medical institutions when he was 33. He's been a black celebrity role model ever since.

Even if you didn't like the substance of what Carson had to say at the breakfast, his speech made for great political theater....
