THE GOP’S DEMISE AS A NATIONAL PARTY IS EXEMPLIFIED BY THE RUSH TO EMBRACE THE TEA-PARTY RUBE FROM FLORIDA – REPUBLICAN SENATOR MARCO RUBIO

.
The Tea Party Boy Wonder from Florida – Marco Rubio – is now being trotted out as the Poster-Boy for the GOP in 2016.
.
In his favor:  He speaks in complete sentences and he’s less than 70 and is not a pasty white guy.  And aside from being straight Tea Party he flirts with the notion of updating the nation’s immigration policy for the better.
.
His negatives:  “Government Can’t Control The Weather” – and it all goes down the drain from there.
.
The GOP is so desperate in the face of a huge wave of Hispanic voters set to make their presence felt in 2016 that they can’t shove Senator Rubio to the front and center fast enough.  I only need to mention two states (with large Hispanic voting populations) to emphasize their desperation:  Florida and Texas.
.
The GOP lost Florida in 2012 and guess what, they’re going to lose Texas in 2016 and with that any chance of continuing as a national political party.
.
To be quite candid – the Democrats won’t be running an African-American candidate for president in 2016.  Whatever states President Obama won in 2012 the Democratic candidate will most likely win again in 2016.  And, as I’ve already said, Texas – with its substantial voting-age Hispanic population – will seal the deal for at least a generation for the Democrats.
.
The predecessor political party to the current GOP, the Whig Party, met their own demise in 1854 and the Republican Party took its place.  It was the issue of slavery that tore the Whig Party apart; the anti-slavery faction prevented the re-nomination of its own incumbent President Millard Fillmore in the 1852 presidential election.
.
Today, it will be the issue of immigration (and it’s byproduct – the surge in Hispanic voters) – that will render the Republican Party obsolete just as slavery did to the Whig Party in 1852.  Pinning your hopes on a photogenic Hispanic Tea Party mannequin like Marco Rubio shows the depths of utter desperation that the 21st century GOP finds itself in today.
