Marco Rubio's speech after the Iowa caucuses was inspiring. Some call it a victory speech, and it was a victory over press bias, Right to Rise PAC, and the establishment that hates his guts. They wanted Trump, and Rubio greatly overperformed, as Bob Dole's endorsee Trump greatly underperformed.
Trump is full of racist hate. I'm enjoying reading Rubio's optimism, for a change. Rubio's New American Century is today's version of Morning in America.

So this is the moment they said would never happen.
For months, for months they told us we had no chance. For months they told us because we offer too much optimism in a time of anger, we had no chance. For months they told us because we didn't have the right endorsements or the right political connections, we had no chance. They told me that we have no chance because my hair wasn't gray enough and my boots were too high. They told me I needed to wait my turn, that I needed to wait in line. But tonight, tonight here in Iowa, the people of this great state have sent a very clear message. After seven years of Barack Obama, we are not waiting any longer to take our country back.
This man would be the best nominee we've had, by far, since Ronald Reagan. I'd be thrilled to vote for either Rubio or Ted Cruz. Last night was good news for conservatives, no doubt about it. The establishment wanted Trump vs Bush, but the conservatives just aren't going away.
Now watch as the establishment spends millions more of Right to Rise's money, to try to stop this conservative upstart from his march up in the polls, and the delegates.
