Rubio says clear message was sent Election Day

(CNN) –Republican Senator-elect Marco Rubio, now considered among the GOP's hottest stars, says Americans have had it with business as usual in Washington, DC.

“This election the American people said enough is enough," he says in the weekly GOP radio and internet address. "That message was loud and clear. We Republicans would be mistaken if we misread these results as simply an embrace of the Republican party. This Election is a second chance. A second chance for Republicans to be what we said we were going to be."

    Can Rubio stop Bloomberg from increasing the MTA fares ?

    The message was, jobs, jobs. We want jobs...not healthcare fights, not partisan bickering, not running for election for twleve months...we want jobs. Work togetehr and geyt our jobs back from China, Mexica, Tiawan, and India. If you don't get our jobs back, or give us jobs, we'll vote you out too....

    Jeb Bush is ECSTATIC!
    His clone is the new Senator and his pet 'crook' is in the Governor's chair.
    I HOPE all those who supported Marco as a Tea Party candidate took note of the fact that he never mentions Tea Party, but consistently refers to the Republicans.
    The Florida Tea Party got flummoxed to the nth degree.

    While Rubio revels in his new stardom, Americans are waking up to the reality of what they voted for:

    "Cantor acknowledged that any effort to solve the nation's budget problems "is going to have to deal with entitlements" – big, popular programs such as Social Security and Medicare, ... ," Cantor wrote. (Washington Post 10.6.2010)

    Change has once again come to Washington. Question is, are we as a Nation ready for the drastic cuts Cantor and others suggest are needed to bolster extending ALL the Bush tax cuts which will expire in December, including $700B in cuts for the top 2% of wealth in America.

    No marco (grown man with the body of a 14 year old – butt ugly picture) Americans didn't say enough is enough. Just because independents are a bunch of people who can't make up their minds and helped put your party on top for now doesn't mean that MOST AMERICANS don't want you around.
    BTW – I hope that with your Cuban background that you pay attention on why your parents (or grandparents) had to leave their country so that you don't follow the same path as castro.

    Rubio should have said, It's a chance for the Republican Party to fix the mass they created under Bush.

    The stock market is at a two year high, up more than 4000 points since Obama took office. The economy, which was losing 750,000 jobs a month when Bush left office, created 150,000 jobs last month. Economic growth, negative when Bush left office, is now positive. So what should we do? The people have voted! Let's go back to the old policies!

    Rubio os spot on, however Liberals have become deaf to the American citizens. The screams of "You Lost, We Won, So Shut Up!" still echo from Liberals in the previous election. Well, it's obvious that Liberals have lost. Will they now shut up?
