This is the response Marco Rubio tweeted when he found out that the Feb. 18 cover of Time magazine featured him with the title "The Republican Saviour": There is only one Saviour, and it is not me. #Jesus

Looks like we might have a good Catholic man running for President of this country in 2016! (Thanks be to God!)

He is Catholic, conservative, a family man, of Hispanic/Cuban heritage, and a Senator from Florida - what more could we want!biggrin

May God and the Holy Spirit guide him during these 4 years until the election in 2016.Praying

Thank you for your post! I love Marco and his policies. I was happy to hear his immigration plan. It is fair and resposible for everyone. It would be lovely to have a faithful Catholic as our president. Praying for our America!

I'm really hoping you guys knock that unsavoury fellow out of your white house. American politics doesn't just effect America. And quite frankly, I'm sick of listening to other New Zealanders harp on about how great Obama is, without knowing the first thing about his attacks on religious freedoms, the insitutition of marriage and his absolutely morally repugnant attacks on the sancitiy of life.

Honestly, I've heard people praise him solely on his skin colour! And what was up with him winning the nobel peace prize? I want it. I've done more than him towards world peace, where's my million bucks?

Hi Naomi, it is so refreshing to hear a young person from an English-speaking country actually NOT be for Obama. I actually lost one of my Canadian friends because I got tired of listening to how wonderful Obama was and how bad Bush was (and this was last year right before the 2nd election of Obama).

Some of us on this site tried really, really hard to get Obama elected (I think this was before I saw you posting in the forums), but if you look at the threads in this forum in the summer/fall and in the prayer forum, you will see what I mean.

And, yes, of course people praise him solely because he is black - why do you think 98% of the black population in the U.S. voted for him (and, yes, I know black people traditionally vote democratic, but not that many!).

And, as for the Nobel peace prize - any other candidate that was up for it would have been a better choice. This was probably the first time the Nobel peace prize was given out for not doing anything- it was sort of an encouraging gesture or a gesture of approval of Obama by the extremely liberal progressive Nobel committee. (Hopefully, they won't give it to him again, but it wouldn't surprise me.)

So, I'm starting right now to support Marco Rubio! (And, it would really be nice if he chose a woman vice-presidentbiggrin to run with him.)

OOps I pushed the wrong key.

You said, "Some of us on this site tried really, really hard to get Obama elected ... ." I think you ment to say that some of us tried really hard to get Romney elected or to at least get Obama unelected. or defeated. I don't want a casual reader to get the wrong idea of your position.

Thanks, Paul. Yes, I meant ot say some of us on this site tried really, really hard to get Obama defeated. Unfortunately, we didn't succeed!

It's always good to proof one's work- something I neglected to do here, sorry!

A woman that could help him win the presidency! Since I'm not a political strategist, I really don't know. But, I do think it would be helpful if she had some experience perhaps as a governor (Nicki Haley or is she too young/inexperienced?). Since, Rubio is Hispanic, I think his running mate could be of any race. Perhaps someone with more experience than him (ie. sort of how Obama picked Biden, but I would suggest the opposite of Biden!) Any suggestions, Bernie? There are obviously many men he could pick as a running mate, it would just be nice to have a woman VP finally!

You go, Naomi. Yep, we are stuck with a real atheist and socialist to boot. Thanks for the international flavor you
added.
