  1. Just like Romney does time and time again, I bet Rubio brings his own supporters to Green Valley Ranch to cheer for him.

  2. Even though the President has repeated the speech given on Sunday many times, the content of the speech tells us the President is working to include all Americans to have opportunity. Education is the key, and a big part of the President's agenda for his next term.

    Eleven thousand people coming out on a Sunday evening to listen to the President of the United States here in Las Vegas, Nevada. You can be sure that Democrats and Republicans, especially independents were in attendance.

    President Obama will win Nevada by 6 to 8 points.

  3. ....Nevadans do not trust outside politicians. Marco Rubio has not interest in, or for Nevada. Marco Rubio has done nothing for Nevadans.

    Nevadans do not trust the Mitt Romney campaign or the Romney supporters. Why? Because Mitt Romney's campaign is based on Lies, Distortions, and misleading statements. Mitt Romney and his supporters are trying to confuse voters. The Romney campaign is a fraud.

    The Romney campaign, supported by the Republican Party, has blacken both eyes of politics. We knew politics was dirty, but the Romney campaign and his supporter coming out from the swamps. Allen West, Michelle Bachman, Peter King, Eric Cantor, Mich McConnell, and Paul Ryan. These individuals are largely responsible for malaise we are experiencing within our government.

    We need a new congress to move this country forward, not a new president. Marco Rubio is all-in with how the extreme right of the Republican Party things and act. Just look at his voting record in the Senate.

  4. Marco Rubio: Possible Candidate in 2016. One of three. He's already starting to campaign.

  5. mred, please cite your source. He has stated many times (including his autobiography) his immediate family fled a couple of years before Castro, but that some of his extended family had to flee after Castro.

  6. Just a stupid Tea/Republican Party attempt to act like they care about the Latino American voters here in Nevada. They love to go for those sound byte moments and show they care for that voting block, but the truth of the matter is...they could care less. The Tea/Republicans have turned it into a fine art to demonize/dehumanize an entire race of people...all in order to pander the votes of another.

    They tried this tactic during the Reid/Angle Senate Race in 2010. And it came back to bite them in the....

    Now, all of a sudden, they are running around busier than cats trying to cover their crap on marble floors to give out a false impression that's not what they are about. But it's failing. Abysmally.

    It's a guarantee the Romney/Ryan ticket could care less about Latino American issues.

    I make a prediction: That voting block in Nevada is going to not only crush Romney/Ryan and vote overwhelmingly Obama/Biden, but it will actually be the death knell for the entire Tea/Republican Party with down ballot effects.

    If they ever want that vote again, they better change. But the way it's going right now, it's not possible. The howling mobs of the ultra-right have taken over and won't let them see reason. This is clearly in evidence whenever an issue important to them is discussed, the ultra-righties go foaming at the mouth and switch the discussion to illegal immigrants and anchor babies and other despicable innuendoes.

    So, if there is a complete destruction of the Tea/Republican Party, they have no one to blame but themselves. When you pick on people constantly, savagely and relentlessly, there is sure to be a boomerang effect. And that is going on right now.

  7. Romney/Ryan.....change I can believe in.
