  1. A visa to kill. This is a sentence, a point/fact that should be stated daily by all the msm. That is a question/topic that should have been asked, at that circus interview yesterday. If I were invited to ask a question of him/ and was denied the chance to bring that topic up, I would have walked out. Oh, Also the WH Press as well should ask that everyday! What is being done to stop them from re-entering the U.S.?

  2. Rubio blew it on Immigration. That not withstanding, looking at the mess that this boy king with a bathtub full of fruit is cool mentality is creating — Rubio does not have the experience, the depth or the practical experience to begin a course of correction and healing and strength that we so desperately need.

    • I would like to see an ex General or Admiral run for president.
      Not likely, but they would balance the field as per experience.
      Many of them are still young enough to do it.
      There are many Lt.Cols. and Colonels out there that are far more qualified to run this Country than Obama is.

      Wouldn’t it be nice to have a veteran in the oval office again instead of a politician ?

      You know,…..one that has served the Country and still adheres to the oath that they took to do so.

      • Almost all of todays Gens/Adms are weak-willed political hacks. Look at the mess that is todays Navy…all because of the past few CNOs and the politcal hack Admirals running various programs (LCS, F-35, optimal crew manning, etc.)
        Todays Navy has more friggin Admirals than warships!

      • I do not appreciate the personel in military positons that he has, and does ignore. This is another issue that gets brushed aside in coversation on the msm, untill the next terrible thing that may happen.
        Speaking of terrible things. On Fox Shep just mentioned that ISIS tweeted they killed the two Japenese men.
