Rubio is now claiming that his father is black, his mother was once a woman, he was young not too long ago, he flirted with the Jewish religion, he's poor in a rich way, he once ate government cheese at a friend's house, he spelled abortion correctly in divinity school, his car was made in Detroit, he likes apple pie and he was a virgin until he wasn't.

We won the election. Obama gives a good SOTU speech. Rubio wasn't very good (I'm being generous). I paid my house off. Maybe there is a God.

And thus ends the Presidential aspirations of Marco Rubio.

Wait, did something crawl up on top of Rand Paul's head and die?

Thanks to most of the swamp team for the liveblog. I'm glad to see Adam's still on board and didn't quit swampland. However, I wrote "most" because Katy Steinmetz was left out. She is part of the swamp team, yes? (or should be) New dude Alex Rogers also should promoted to official swamper along with Katy for his resurrection of MMR's.

Rubio: "I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in".

Mitt: I still live in some of the same houses that the kids kind of remember.

Rubio is a no-no person and america needs someone to see the light at the end of the tunnel and brings us out with real solutions

Good Lord, Rubio really is a vacuous little twit, isn't he?

Rubio is auditioning for 2016. Just like he did at Romney's convention.

State of the Union summary in one sentence: If you want a job, then move to China because we are going to spend our time and your deficit dollars on more important things like "homosexual marriage", immigration, gun control, climate control, Obamacare, etc.

Ted Nugent. Clint Eastwood. Now I know why the republicans hate Hollywood.

"Our rights are wrapped up in the rights of others."

That's news to the baggers.

Ted Nugent and Boehner both look like they'd rather be dressed in drag than be listening to Obama tonight.

OT, but LeBron James had another 30 point game tonight and shot over 70%. It's the 1st time in NBA history that a player has had 30+ points in 6 straight games and shot over 60% in all of them.

Obama says The last 12 of 15 years have been the hottest on record...........

These will increase in frequency and intensity, like birth pains, as the return of Christ draws near....

........Mark 13:8
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.....

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.......

You can't legislate responsible parenting, just like you can't be there when a teenager decides to have unprotected sex and conceives a baby out of wedlock, or be there when a person decides to keep smoking. People do things they Re Ware have consequences, but are not being held accountable because we are now

The camera just panned some of the angry, bitter, sour-faced House GOTP and I laughed out loud.  Thanks for the LOLZ, baggers!

@sacredh Also, he used student loans but he didn't enjoy it. He doesn't dance because he doesn't want people to think he's having sex. He reads, but only the Bible and the Constitution.

It got into a fight with Trump's do' and lost. The top of Rand's head seemed like a good place to die.

He was better than Jindal. Snicker.

@Sue_N Thank God someone else thinks so! Really, between Rubio and Rand Paul there might be a total of seven brain cells.

@sacredh Remember Bobby Jindal's GOTP response?  Delivery like he was Mr. Roger's Neighborhood and we were a bunch of pre-schoolers?  One of the reasons Jindal will never be President.  Chump, indeed.

@sacredh  Boehner needs serious bourbon now. He should avoid Maker's Mark, however. It's awesome stuff, but they're now watering it down / lowering proof.

@Hollywooddeed Orange Johnny looks like he's trying to glare holes into the back of Obama's head.

He reads Guns 'n' Ammo too. well, he reads it to the kids at night. As for sex, he makes his wife search him for a concealed weapon.

@sacredh It's a long time until 2014 and the start of the 2016 campaign. There's all kinds of ways for Rubio to screw the pooch, and I'm betting he finds more than a few.

My wife had a great line when Jindal gave the GOP response. "Good Lord, It's Opie from New Delhi".

I love the republican party. They're making every mistake I want them to. Well, it's bedtime for me. I have to take my dog in to the vet tomorrow to get her stitches/sutures removed.

@sacredh It's a catch-22. If he throws in with the Tea Party, he loses the general. If he doesn't throw in with the Tea Party, he never makes it to the general. Either way, buh-bye, Marco.

Count on it. He either jumps in bed with the Tea Party or he waffles and takes the hard road.

I think he crapped his pants just for old time's sake.

@sacredh I didn't see The Nuge. He had to be chewing furniture during that "give them a vote" portion.

I wonder if Ted Nugent has killed something yet. I wondered the same thing about Boehner but I'm sure that he's killed a couple of fifths by now.

I wouldn't say that. The chances are 50-50 that I vote for him in the primary. Unless Santorum looks strong.
