That will be one of the many differences between Latinos and Hispanics.

What if Obama gave a speech that includes moving forward everything the GOP wants? What would Rubio say in response? Would he then counter the President with the opposite - which in doing so would be more along the lines of really what Obama and the Dem Party want? Or would have praise the President on this turn of events?

Definitely "no" to the 2nd. It's a rare GOP member that would praise the President.

Thoughts?

The part where the guy's head explodes? The GOP wouldn't be able to reconcile the policy of disagreeing with the president with getting exactly what they want.

I thought they were just the radical right of the right wing republicans.

If the teabaggers are a separate party and get a separate response to the Presidents speeches, then there has to be something we can use here legally that can be applied to the legislative caucus majorities in Congress, Senate and all the state houses.

The republicans would never see a majority again and neither would the baggers.

sort of the right things. Rand Paul is Tea Party stupid and will say what they want to hear. I will relish the very real humor in the situation. [url=http://www.desismileys.com/][img][/img][/url]

I saw it before with a picture of Rand Paul's father Ron with pancakes on his head. Did he make a joke about pancakes or something?
