I wonder if Rubio's speech at the convention will lead a few to think they nominated the wrong one.

Reagan's speech supporting Ford in '76 had that effect.

It's good news for America, and yes, I could change my legal residence to Florida by November.

 This is not a sure win for Rubio, but if he is going to lose another statewide race in Florida it might as well be now.

I disagree with Senator Rubio here.

# 1)   Most of the media is no longer a watchdog of government.  As we all know the vast majority of the media is a shill for the LEFT.  The only way we have to ensure some integrity is to know what is going on behind the scenes.

#2)   Wiki leaks is good hard evidence that what we conservatives have long suspected the Dems are doing , illegally , behind the scenes is actually happening.  We finally have evidence that supports our suspicions and rebuts their endless denials and outright lies.

# 3)  To ignore this information is the same mistake Republicans make ad nauseam ; that is try to take a  high road only to get buried by the liberals  and lose the war.

# 4)  Does Marco think that the LEFT would not use such information against the Repubs if the situation was reversed?  Of course they would .  It would be on the front pages of every liberal media outlet all day and every day.

#5) could the next time be "us".  Absolutely.  Will it happen" absolutely.  So now is the time to set guidelines on how to avoid problems later.  Don't say anything incriminating on emails.  Assume it is potential public information.

Not noble (or "nobel" sic  cheesy )  but naive.

"To ignore this information is the same mistake Republicans make ad nauseam ; that is try to take a  high road only to get buried by the liberals  and lose the war."

Yes.

Rubio makes a good point IMHO to note the danger of accepting leaks, breaches and ill-gotten material.  That said, as others pointed out, we play on their playing field and cannot accept two sets of rules.  When the leaks expose Republicans, the adversaries aren't going to look the other way.  Good grief.

Trump should have turned this into example and proof that HER choice of unsecured communications was reckless and dangerous.  Emails of valuable targets get hacked.

It is also an interesting to the deletion of 33,000 wedding planning emails.  We will eventually know.

40 minutes with Marco Rubio on the whole realm of today's issues:

https://www.politico.com/video/2017/11/29/full-video-of-playbook-interview-sen-marco-rubio-064454

I don't agree 100% with him on everything but he probably makes more sense than anyone else in elected position that you're hearing right now.

Cuba, North Korea, taxes, blue collar workers, families, the wall, working with Trump, running for higher office, etc.

Rubio’s Tax Lament
The Florida Senator shows he doesn’t know how economies grow.
By The Editorial Board
Jan. 2, 2018 7:34 p.m. ET
123 COMMENTS

Republicans have had a tough time selling tax reform to the public, and no wonder: Some GOP Members appear not to understand the economics behind it. Meet Senator Marco Rubio, who voted for the bill but now says it helped businesses too much.

“If I were king for a day, this tax bill would have looked different,” he told Florida’s News-Press, adding the bill “probably went too far” in helping corporations. “By and large, you’re going to see a lot of these multinationals buy back shares to drive up the price. Some of them will be forced, because they’re sitting on historic levels of cash, to pay out dividends to shareholders. That isn’t going to create dramatic economic growth.” He then noted his support for the doubled child tax credit.

Cable news picked up these comments as proof that the left was right all along that the bill is for the wealthy. This is politically regrettable and will make it harder for Republicans to persuade Americans that the law is good policy. Does Mr. Rubio want his party to lose the House and Senate?

But the more important point is what the comments betray about Mr. Rubio’s lack of economic understanding. Corporations don’t ultimately pay income taxes. They collect them, and their incidence is imposed on workers, shareholders and customers. A tax-rate cut on corporations means a wage increase for workers.

Mr. Rubio also whiffs with his zero-sum implication that any benefit to shareholders comes at the expense of growth. Economist John Cochrane in a blog post last month knocked down the “buyback fallacy.” Even if companies send money back to shareholders, investors will find other uses for it.

“In the end, investment in the whole economy has nothing to do with the financial decisions of individual companies,” Mr. Cochrane writes. “Investment will increase if the marginal, after-tax, return to investment increases.” This is the point of lowering the corporate rate—to change incentives.

The irony is that Mr. Rubio criticizes the corporate cut on grounds that it won’t produce much economic growth. Yet he takes a victory lap on the expanded child credit he demanded as the price of his vote. This special break for some families has no discernible growth effect. That’s because the child credit does not—say it again—change the incentive to work or invest.

Mr. Rubio also misjudges the economic moment. With the expansion already into its eighth year, and labor markets tight, the economy needs a boost in capital investment to sustain its momentum. This would help workers in particular as businesses scramble to find skilled, reliable employees when the jobless rate is low. Mr. Rubio apparently thinks that workers are better off if politicians hand out checks, whether workers owe income taxes or not, as opposed to having faster growth and business investment bid up wages.

Perhaps Mr. Rubio thinks his refundable tax credits will appeal to President Trump’s working-class voters, and this political opportunism is disappointing. But his failure to grasp basic market economics suggests that GOP primary voters were right to reject him in 2016.
