Congresswoman Val Demings has announced her candidacy for US Senate. Despite Florida’s clear trend toward the GOP at the statewide level, national Democrats are crowing about this “get” in terms of candidate recruitment and now see the race as a potential pick-up in a 50-50 US Senate. Demings is at least on paper about as […]
In the motherhood Hall of Fame there is one special section for moms who make their kids feel guilty, shaming them into doing things they don’t want to do. Honorable mention to all the Jewish moms out there. Cuban moms have a special knack for guilt inducing diatribes with all the drama of the worst […]
Marco Rubio is the LAST PERSON with the credibility to call for civility – judge him by his own words in the past
The DC political press corps favorite GOPer (though this is not true of the Florida press corp who have generally tried to keep him honest), Florida Junior Senator Marco Rubio has reappeared as a national figure in the wake of this week’s tragic events. After days of silence following an attempt by one of his […]
Donald Trump, despite his populist reputation has gradually adopted the neoconservative foreign policy of Florida’s Junior Senator Marco Rubio. Rubio is an unreconstructed neoconservative that has never met a military intervention that he didn’t embrace, even if it isn’t in our national security interests. He has never missed an opportunity to undermine our current administration’s […]
What we are reading: Marco Rubio, still seeking Tampa Bay home, has staff meet constituents at libraries, coffee shops
Somehow with all the excitement of the last few days we missed this Tampa Bay Times article until this morning. Lots of interesting nuggets in this must-read article.
The media failed to show same outrage about Rubio’s slanderous comments about President Obama as they did about Trump’s

From Politico’s Marc Caputo, Senator Marco Rubio is unsurprisingly skipping doing town halls. In fairness, Rubio has been more accessible than most Florida-based GOP officeholders in the past but his failed Presidential campaign and the advent of the Trump era seems to have weakened his willingness to face his constituents.
Marco Rubio was educated in Florida’s public school and universities. A man who likes to pass himself off as a man of principle and a defender of American values (as evidenced by his “emotional” showboating during the confirmation hearings of Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State – a nominee that Rubio eventually supported) is really […]
Marco Rubio is a charlatan. He’s the worst kind of deceitful devious politician. Some politicians don’t have any sort of belief system or ideology. That’s not a positive thing obviously, but what is worse is a politician that will or do anything to get elected or to get public praise or attention, but has at […]
Cuban dictator/revolutionary/leader, etc Fidel Castro passed away in the wee hours Saturday. The Castro legacy divides Floridians more than others – the large Cuban exile community in southeast Florida loathed the man while many on the left have noted that Castro was a freedom fighter against a right-wing dictatorship that was propped up by the […]
