    Marco Rubio

    In my inbox today from Mr. Rubio:

    On Saturday night at the debate, I dropped the ball. I want you to know that will never happen again.

    We are heading to South Carolina, Nevada and beyond. Make no mistake: We are going to win this nomination.

    Throughout my life, I’ve known tough times. In New Hampshire last night, I told the story of how when I was young, at one point, my father lost his job as an apartment manager and my family had to move out of our Miami apartment, all in the same week. He had to move clear across the country to Las Vegas to look for work, and the job he finally found, after 20 years as a bartender who’d finally moved his way up a bit, had him starting from scratch again as a busboy.

    I know how to come from behind. We’re going to show America what leadership and a vision for a New American Century look like.

    If you heard what Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton said last night, you know the stakes: If one of them wins this fall, they will keep up President Obama’s efforts to change our country beyond recognition.

    I shudder to think what another eight years of President Obama’s liberal leadership and lawless actions will look like. This is our chance to ensure that doesn’t happen.

    I am the only conservative candidate who can unite our party and beat Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders this fall.

    If you want a Republican White House next year instead, with the ideas we need to restore America in the 21st Century, then I need your support.

    Again, this is just the beginning. I hope I’ll have your support as we continue this journey.

    Marco

    I thought presidential terms were only 4 years.

    Only 2 presidents in 50 years didn't win reelection...I figure that's what he's is getting at.

    Send him fifty cents and a stick of deodorant. I was cautiously in his corner, and now, not so much.

    Should have done this the day after...now it may be a little late. Kasich is a better candidate and he let him and Jeb get momentum.

    It's over.

    Kasich is unelectable as the top-billed candidate on a ticket IMO. He's perfect for the second chair, but as the headliner? Not so much.

    This is probably going to be what happens in the end.

    I'm becoming more and more convinced of this. He is a great choice for VP.

    How many times in a row did he send this e-mail?

    I like how he talks about a new american century. That would have been good line 16 years ago. This Rubio is a weird fellow.

    I agree about Kasich and vp slot. Experience, Ohio, etc.

    If that was his biggest slipup, in comparison to other candidates, I give him a pass. I still support Rubio (for now). Very curious to see how he is on Saturday night in the next GOP debate.

    He did it again. It's not a slip up. He doesn't have any depth.

    Why would Kasich be viewed as unelectable ? he's not exactly my leading choice but seems like he would make a fine president.

    Because he has zero personality. He's boring. America won't elect boring.
