Forget about Rand Paul. Rubio's lipsticked reiteration of Romney's campaign speech left me thirsty for more....

Rand Paul is a genius in his own mind.In reality he is nothing more than a extremist out of touch with the vast majority of Americans.The unhappy 35% of mostly white rural people will not be making any positive contributions going forward unless they open their eyes and have some common sense.I have been surprised at how many right wing conservatives there are in Ptown.The common thread I see is fear that the country's demographics is changing and they cannot handle losing their majority "ruling" status.The hatred of Obama comes from that fear and that he represents a changing America.Even though he is American as much as anyone,is a great father,is very likeable and in touch with all the culture....a guy that most people would love to have as a neighbor or friend,he is not white and he represents the changing of America.The hatred is so obvious and so sad.The problem of course is that hatred is going to prevent common sense compromise on important issues unless something changes real quick.So all of you who profess to love America so much are going to be responsible for destroying it out of pure idiocy and selfishness.
