What is the reason Republicans have become the party of anti-intellectuals? The danger is that it may drown out any intelligent discourse about the most important issues of our day. It's driving at least one of our political parties into insanely ridiculous positions, at the moment.

Time will tell if Marco Rubio survives the 2016 Republican version of demolition derby. What's clear is that despite his cherubic, youthful demeanor, Rubio is a hard-core conservative, every bit as dangerous as his idol, George W. Bush.

By revising the date and reason for his parents' emigration, Rubio ingratiated himself with the dominant Cuban exile factions and placed his political narrative into a Reagan-esque storyline about freedom. But the significance of this story goes far beyond resume-padding; it has shined a spotlight on the senator's moral character.

There are no shortage of ideas on the subject, and the debate has been robust. But I'd argue that our national conversation has been missing one essential element: a physician's focus on prevention.

Rubio's Cube

There's no puzzle to what's wrong with our nation, but Rubio, redundant in his address, failed to provide any new or real solutions. Rubio seems perplexed by the same fog of hypocrisy that inflicts all elected Republicans.

I think that Marco Rubio is the GOP's savior to many in the Republican Party. He just isn't their new voice. Just the same, cold-hearted, mean-spirited, empty one, filling the echo chamber with his bunko act.

Even in a worse case, if Romney doesn't get one extra Latino vote than the GOP norm, it will still be a significant percentage and number of Latino votes. If he does better with Latino voters in one or two of the swing states, this could pose more of a threat to Obama.
