RE: Nate Silver Says Marco Rubio is as Unelectable as Mitt Romney Was
I didn't really watch Rubio's response, I more listened to it ... but it sounded exactly like a Romney speech, and that didn't work out too well for the repugs. Rubio is your typical teabagger, and the repugs think (or hope) just because he's got a Spanish sounding name people won't notice that he is just another teabagger without an original thought in his head.
