Gave up on the idea of Trump's wall already?

Not yet. I was always supporting Cruz. Trump is my second choice because of the wall and the promise to deport illegal aliens back to their homes. As for my third choice, I suppose its Rubio because he at least can keep the yellow-eyed sulfur queen out of our White House.

I have absolutely no rational basis for believing this, but I suspect Ted Cruz is a pedophile.

Can anyone explain to me which of Rubio's views differ from GW Bush?

As a candidate, he seems like he would have about the same level of appeal as Romney, but with about half the brains.

On a debate stage with HRC, his agitated wind-up-doll delivery of canned lines is going to look like a kid running for high school student council. He's also a midget.

Cruz, Trump or bust. Trump is a charlatan, but has the best chance in the general and it would be a nice FU to the establsihment. Cruz has principles, and could be a wrecking ball if he got congress on board, but he's too oilly to win the general.

This couldn't be more true, and Rubio seems particularly flagrant compared to other candidates. Glenn Beck interviewed Rubio a few weeks ago. The interview took place in a new set The Blaze was building - a reproduction of the oval office. It started out lighthearted - Beck began by telling a charming story about a conversation he had with GW Bush. GW told Beck that on the day after the election, the president elect gets a call from the White House. The person on the other end of the line will ask "what do you want your carpet to look like?"

Beck went on to explain GW's answer, which was interesting, but not the point here. Beck asked Rubio how would he answer the question "what do you want your carpet to look like" if he were elected. Rubio said, word for word, "We can reflect on the carpet, but I think we have to be realistic about our challenges but optimistic about our future." He continued in to a rehearsed spiel and avoided an opportunity to appeal to anyone on a personal level.

It was the most annoying answer I've seen from a politician in a long time. Sometimes it helps to pretend you're human.

Rubio is obviously knowledgeable, but he strikes me as that smart kid who stayed up too late studying and ends up just reciting bullet points. It's way too formulaic.

He's still the only chance for the establishment wing of the party, but I don't think he'd come off well next to Hillary on a debate stage. Trump and Cruz can dodge a lot of the issue and focus on emotion, but Rubio's going to look like a robot next to Hillary (which is really saying something).

The only thing in his favor in that scenario it's that he'd still seem vaguely likeable, whereas she always gives off the vibe that she's pissed the country hasn't just given her the job already.

Apparently out stumping for her mother Chelsea made a slip and referred to Bernie as "President Sanders." The interesting thing is the headline refers to her as a philanthropist. How the fuck does Hillary have the hutzpah to run as being for the working guy when apparently her kid can go straight from being a college graduate to being a fucking philanthropist without earning a fortune of her own?

Edit: I stand corrected per a bit of quick Google-fu. Apparently in five or six years she built about a $15 million fortune as a consultant. rolleyes.gif Oh, and hubby is a hedgie.

I obviously hate Ted Cruz, but my baby daughter already does that to me sometimes. I imagine when she's a teenager she'll do that a hell of a lot more.

"He's owned by Goldman Sachs.  He and Hillary have more in common than (I) would have with either (him) or Trump."

That last one was hilarious. Most backhanded endorsement ever!
