    The fact that the banksters have shown their hand so clearly shows how desperate Rubio is. He's finished!

    In any case its now way too late to have the effect that they want. The best they can hope for is a contested convention.

    I'm starting to hope for Drumpf presidency so that America can learn a valuable lesson is electing a populist.

    Just like Argentina and Venezuele learnt valuable lessons.

    He doesn't realise how much he sounds like a chavista or peronist.

    It stopped being funny when the idiot wont his second primary.
    And the fact that he's the only the second most crazy lunatic running for the GOP is even scarier (yes, Cruz is actually worse).

    I don't want to see America weakened but I do think a populist president would be a severe lesson in reality.

    I am starting to think Trump is FAR smarter than his GOP opponents. Of course that is not saying much.

    As for Singer backing Rubio in October, that worked well didn't it, NOT?

    “The decision also shows just how willing Rubio is to risk voter backlash in order to continue raising money for his campaign march.”

    Something Trump continues to remain free of given he is spending his own money and has refused all offers, even from his friends.

    I think Trump will have a harder time when he actually starts running for the President and he has to deal with the entire population and not just the KKK, Bud and Nascar fans. But we'll the words of our unbeloved and departed poster......pass the popcorn, this is gonna be fun.
