Marco Rubio: From Poor Boy Cuban Hero to Grinder?

September 23, 2010

Marco Rubio, son of working class immigrants, Republican US Senate candidate and, of course, a hero, is facing questions stemming from spending decisions made during his reign as Speaker of the Florida House. In 2007 while courageously leading the Florida House of Representatives, Rubio somehow found the time to become a true hero to a [...]

Bi-Party Crist Wont Pick Partner

August 30, 2010

Florida Governor and one-time leading Senatorial Candidate Charlie Crist is finding that coming out as bi-party is not the cakewalk that he was hoping for – his old friends feel betrayed and confused, his new friends are somewhat fickle, and his enemies are gleeful as he bends and twists to distance himself from the very [...]

Rubio Likes Dry Feet, Not Wet Backs

August 11, 2010

NOTE: The title references two US immigration policies. Wet Feet, Dry Feet: …in what has become known as the “wet foot, dry foot” policy, a Cuban caught on the waters between the two nations (i.e., with “wet feet”) would summarily be sent home or to a third country. One who makes it to shore (“dry [...]

Unions 101 – Which Side Are You On?

August 3, 2010

“There’s no such thing as neutral. You have to be on one side or the other. Some people say, “I don’t take sides – I’m neutral.” There’s no such thing. In your mind you’re on one side or the other. In Harlan County there wasn’t no neutral. If you wasn’t a gun thug, you was [...]

No Longer Beating a Dead Horse

June 24, 2010

I give up – there’s really no reason to rally behind the only real Democrat in the Democratic primary race. No Party Charlie Crist is with us on everything except what he’s not with us on and that’s good enough for me, so the primary is officially moot. Look, I will always like Kendrick – [...]

Meek vs. Greene In a Nutshell

The difference between the Democrat in the Democratic primary race for Florida Senate and the other guy who is running in the Democratic primary can be summed up with these two short clips. First, from The Buzz: Jeff Greene’s first campaign stop in Tampa Bay yesterday. He met privately with assorted politicos, taped some TV [...]

Kendrick Meek Needs Us Now

June 17, 2010

Charlie Crist is no progressive. “I’m as conservative as any governor. I’m chain gang Charlie. I’m pro-gun. I’m pro life,” There is a true progressive in the Florida Senate race, and he is being all but ignored by the progressive community.  Kendrick Meek needs and deserves the support of everyone who is looking to put [...]

Rubio Drilling Deeper and Deeper

June 16, 2010

Nationwide, tea party primary winners are grabbing headlines as they seemingly try to outdo each other in a surreal political reality theater.  Nevada’s Sharron Angle, Kentucky’s Rand Paul and Florida’s Marco Rubio are three of the not ready for post-primary time players who are battling it out on America’s Got Tea. Each of these far [...]

Will Meek Be the Last Pol Standing in Nov.?

June 4, 2010

In the 3 way race that is expected to develop for Florida Senate, Kendrick Meek is perfectly positioned to benefit from scandals rocking the Florida GOP. No party Charlie Crist’s hand-picked head of the Florida Republicans was just arrested for… stealing from the Florida Republicans. Marco Rubio is also caught up in the scandal, as the IRS is investigating reports that he more or less lived off of a Florida Republican Party American Express Card for several years. Perhaps most importantly, Crist’s and Rubio’s problems are indicative of a GOP brand in Florida that is heavily tainted by rampant corruption.
