I heard on NPR that when Rubio got on the plane after annoucning his run, that the person in the

seat beside him was Jeb Bush.

Jeb sucked all of the air out of the room and the interviewer resorted to asking Rubio about Jeb.

Even on Rubio's special day, he's in the shadow of a Bush.

I think TV's Frank said it best: "Marco Rubio got into the GOP presidential race early so he'd have more time to work on his concession speech." https://twitter.com/FrankConniff/status/587661916786585601

1. That's cause Rubio is running for VP

Possibly Jeb's.

2. They're from the same state, right? I don't think Jeb would leave Florida in Rubio's clammy hands.

Jeb will have to count on his wife and kids to push for the Latino vote.

Rubio adds nothing, but a nervous, dry-mouth, tongue-clicker, with desperate worry in his eyes. He'd be covered in flop sweat, but he isn't hydrated enough to produce it.

Jeb, the evil scum, is much more professional that Rubio.

3. He's Latino

and while Cruz is also Latino, Ted's a nut job. Rubio is less so.
I don't know that the state thing matters as much as it used to, but there could be a conflict with that.

5. Rubio is a Cuban descendant, which used to be a big deal in Miami. Nowadays, only the oldest Cuban-

Americans are Republican, the younger generations are mostly Democratic. His opposition to the dream act and his party's treatment of Hispanics will doom his candidacy (just like Cruz) among the Latinos from Mexico, Central, and South America. Rubio is headed for a brick wall with his political aspirations and he's too inexperienced to see it.

7. The elephant looks like he is trying to steal cookies from a cookie jar.

Even the GOP will send little Rubio to his room.

Look at his site!

1. Fight communism
2. Protect life
3. Shoot things
4. How I became a repub (I assume it involves being dropped on his head)
5. Israel
