Florida Sen. Marco Rubio returned home to Miami today in the middle of a campaign swing with Mitt Romney after he learned his daughter had been in a car accident.

Amanda Rubio, 12, the senator’s eldest daughter, was injured today when a golf cart she was riding in as a passenger in a private gated community got into a collision, Rubio’s spokesman Alex Conant said. The accident occurred while she was visiting with classmates, he said.

She was airlifted to Miami Children’s Hospital, where she was admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit with a head injury. She was listed in fair condition.

“Senator and Mrs. Rubio are grateful for all the outpouring of support and prayers,” Conant said.

“The Rubios are touched and grateful for calls from President Obama and Vice President Biden, and Governor Romney’s personal message earlier today,” Conant said.

Rubio, who has four children, was notified of the accident after coming off stage at a campaign event with Romney in Kissimmee, Fla., Conant said.

About an hour after leaving the event aboard Romney’s campaign plane, the Romney motorcade pulled over on Interstate-4 and Rubio climbed out and into a waiting state police car, which sped off to take him home to Miami. Before climbing in reporters saw Rubio placing a series of phone calls and talking to staffers and United States Secret Service agents.

An aide later said that Rubio had driven with the motorcade to get closer to an airport in Tampa where a flight had already been arranged to take him home to Miami and it was determined that it was still the fastest route to get him there.

On the drive, traveling press secretary Rick Gorka said that Romney “offered his condolences, like any nervous father, and offered his thoughts and prayers” while Rubio made calls to his family members.

Earlier in the day, Rubio had introduced Romney at two separate Florida rallies and had been scheduled to do the same this evening at an event outside Tampa.

August 29, 2012

She may be too good.

Ann Romney is so gifted at politics, she may actually make her husband look a little bad. Their personality gap — her ease, his discomfort — has been evident in most of the many joint interviews they have given television reporters.

But it really stood out during her bold, boisterous testimonial to him at the Republican convention on Tuesday night. She was electric — when Mitt Romney came to her side at the end, he somehow sapped the energy from the moment.

“I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a ‘storybook marriage,’ ” she said. “Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once. And those storybooks never seemed to have chapters called M.S. or breast cancer.”

Mrs. Romney has been afflicted with both.

The adversity she glossed over with such poise was hers to overcome, not his; her energetic, excited performance highlighted her appeal even more than his steadfastness.

She addressed the women in the audience in complicit tones. “And if you listen carefully, you’ll hear the women sighing a little bit more than the men,” she said. “It’s how it is, isn’t it? It’s the moms who always have to work a little harder, to make everything right.”

Mrs. Romney, wearing a bright red silk dress, gave a tribute that was loving and generous and revealed just how much Mr. Romney owes his talented and determined spouse.

Her multiple sclerosis is under control, but stress, she has said, is a trigger. Expectations for her speech were high. (Fox News predicted it would be a “campaign game-changer.”) So were the political risks of speaking while Hurricane Isaac was tearing up the Gulf Coast. Mrs. Romney was careful to begin with a word of prayer for those at risk.

She seemed a little hyped up and nervous, and that giddiness was disarming. (She said “sexful” instead of “successful.”) She described herself as a grandmother, but at times she sounded like a young girl trying to convince her classmates that the guy she is bringing to the prom is better than he seems. “I could tell you why I fell in love with him. He was tall, laughed a lot, was nervous — girls like that, it shows the guy’s a little intimidated — and he was nice to my parents,” she said. “But he was really glad when my parents weren’t around.”

Most of all she worked hard to play down the Romney wealth and privilege. She described herself as the granddaughter of a Welsh coal miner. (Earlier in the day, she distributed cookies to reporters on the press plane, Welsh cakes she made from her grandmother’s recipe.) She recalled their life as newlyweds in a basement apartment with a fold-down ironing board as a dining room table.

His wealth, she insisted, was his own doing, not a hand-me-down. “And let’s be honest. If the last four years had been more successful, do we really think there would be this attack on Mitt Romney’s success?” she asked, supplying her own answer: “Of course not.”

She tried to make his reticence into a virtue: “Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not as a political talking point.”

Like many a would-be first lady, Mrs. Romney was tapped to make her husband seem more approachable and personable. “I know this good and decent man for what he is,” she said, “warm and loving and patient.” As with other politicians who seem to have a happy family life, his marriage, which produced five devoted sons and 18 grandchildren, is as much a part of his campaign biography as his success at Bain Capital.

But more than any other candidate in recent memory, Mr. Romney delegates his likability to his wife.

He was born into a political family — his father ran for president, his mother for Senate — but Ann Romney is the natural.

“The funny thing is, I don’t really get that nervous when I speak, I don’t get that nervous when I do TV interviews or anything else,” she told Diane Sawyer of ABC moments after practicing with the teleprompter. “The only time I get nervous is when I show my horse.”

Paul Ryan

August 11, 2012              9:05 a.m.

The choice of GOP budget guru Paul Ryan as the vice-presidential running mate drew sharp, swift responses reflecting the nation’s deeply polarized political landscape.

The conservative Tea Party Express praised Mitt Romney‘s decision to tap Ryan “who is so popular with tea party activists.”

And Sen. Marco Rubio, the Florida Republican who also had been a vice presidential contender, called Ryan a “courageous reformer.” Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum said adding Ryan to the ticket reflects Romney’s commitment to restoring “fiscal sanity,” and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush found the choice “courageous.”

“Mitt Romney made a courageous choice for a BIG solutions election,” said former GOP presidential nominee Newt Gingrich. GOP Sen. John McCain, the 2008 presidential nominee, called the Romney-Ryan ticket “the strongest team.”

The conservative Club for Growth said the pick “sends the message that Gov. Romney is interested in bold reforms.”

Democratsand their allies, though, welcomed the opportunity to bring the Ryan fiscal agenda to voters this fall, and immediately sent out a fundraising email about Romney’s choice of “the architect of the Republican plan to kill Medicare.”

“Congressman Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are a match made in millionaires’ heaven,” said Rep. Steve Israel of New York, who directs Democratic campaign efforts in the House. “But they’ll be a nightmare for seniors who’ve earned their Medicare benefits.”

Ryan, a Wisconsin congressman who chairs the House Budget Committee, has long been a polarizing figure in national politics for his austere approach to reining in the nation’s deficits and revamping the entitlement system — particularly his Medicare proposal that would allow the next generation of seniors, those now 55, the option of a voucher-like system to buy private insurance outside the existing senior health program. The 42-year-old is one of the so-called “Young Guns” of up-and-coming House Republican leaders.

“A Romney-Ryan ticket is a weapon of mass destruction unapologetically pointed at our Social Security, our Medicare and our hopes for maintaining a modest, middle class lifestyle during our retirement years,” said Eric Kingson, co-founder of the Social Security Coalition and Nancy Altman, co-director of the Social Security Works.

With the choice of Ryan, the presumed GOP presidential nominee has shown the American people that an “extremist, irresponsible and anti-worker agenda is what’s right for our country,” said Mary Kay Henry, the president of the SEIU labor union.

The 1 million-member Progressive Change Campaign Committee called Ryan “a right-wing extremist who wants to end Medicare.”

Rep. Kathy Hochul, the New York Democrat who won a 2011 special election in a race that experts said turned in part on Ryan’s proposed Medicare changes, campaigned on the choice Saturday, saying the country needs fresh choices not a rehashing of “failed ideas.”

Ryan also drew sharp responses from women’s groups over his position against abortion.

The anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List praised his “pristine pro-life voting record,” and his insistence there be “no ‘truce'” on the issue.

Some congressional Republicans have backed away from Ryan’s fiscal approach, but congressional leaders split along largely partisan lines Saturday over the vice presidential choice, despite the overwhelming approval of Ryan’s budget blueprint by his party in the House and Senate.

House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) called Ryan a “proven leader.” Fellow “Young Gun” Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the House majority leader, said by picking Ryan, a friend, Romney “could not have made a finer choice for the future direction of the country.”

Democrats characterized the choice as a “Hail Mary” pass to appeal to conservatives and the tea party base of the Republican Party that will alienate independent voters.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nv.) said Romney “has doubled down on his commitment to gut Social Secuirty and end Medicare as we know it” by “catering to the tea party and the far right.”

And Rep. Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco, the Democratic minority leader, said: “The choice Americans are facing could not be more clear.”

Mitt Romney to Announce Vice Presidential Running Mate Saturday in Norfolk, Va.

Mitt Romney will announce his vice presidential running mate on Saturday in Virginia, his campaign announced this evening.

Romney, who has several events planned in the crucial swing state Saturday, will announce his running mate in Norfolk.

The news first broke via Twitter, when Romney’s communications director, Gail Gitcho, tweeted, “@MittRomney will announce his VP pick tomorrow in Norfolk. Download the VP app to be the first to know. mi.tt/Mitt-VP.”

A campaign aide later confirmed the accuracy of the tweet to ABC News.

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell had been slated to appear at the events Saturday alongside Romney, sparking speculation that he may be his vice presidential pick.

Others believed on the shortlist include Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio.

August 1, 2012               3:50 p.m.

For those looking for a new way of gauging the race between President Obama and Mitt Romney, Twitter has created its own political index, aimed at breaking down user sentiments toward both candidates.

The social media service, working with partners specializing in opinion research and data analysis, will provide a rating of each candidate on a scale of 1 to 100, updated every day.

As shown in the accompanying chart, Obama currently has a 34 rating and Romney 25. As opposed to being a direct evaluation of their popularity among Twitter users, those figures are based on a comparison between the tweets containing references to either candidate and the Twitter universe as a whole.

Topsy, a separate company focused on data analysis, analyzes the approximately 400 million tweets sent daily on all topics, ranking the most positive at 100 and the most negative at 1.

Tweets referring to Romney or Obama either using their Twitter handle or name are evaluated on the scale, then compared with the rest of the gathered tweets. Hashtags and other means of referring to either candidate are excluded by the algorithm. That same algorithm is intended to eliminate the influence of sarcastic or humorous references to the candidates by averaging them in with the rest of the mentions.

“It’s a leap of faith that the left uses sarcasm as much as the right,” Adam Sharp, who runs government, news and social innovation at Twitter, said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

So Romney’s score of 25 means that 24% of all tweets are more negative than those referencing the former Massachusetts governor, and 75% are more positive. Sharp stressed that the score isn’t aimed to be a rating on individual tweets, but instead to serve as a look which percentile the average tweet would fall into.

Twitter is far from representative of the electoral public though, with a recent Pew survey finding that 15% of online adults are on Twitter, with 8% using it daily. And adoption rates of the social network expectedly skew toward the young, with 26% of 18-29-year-olds tweeting, with just 14% of 30-49-year-olds and 9% of 50-64-year-olds joining them.

This, of course, brings up a question of just how useful Twitter’s index can be, but going back to Aug. 2010, there is some correlation between the political index and Gallup’s approval/disapproval polling.

 

undefined

Sharp said that instead of replacing the likes of Gallup, the index will add to their findings to present a “meaningful window into conversations” that were previously limited to coffee shops and water coolers, providing “texture” to traditional polling methods.

Sharp cited the swift spike in Obama’s index rating following the death of Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011, which at that point generated more tweets than any other news event, as an example of what texture meant. Polling on Obama’s favorability held strong in the following days and weeks. But over the next two months on Twitter, there was more discussion on economic matters than on all national security issues combined, including Bin Laden’s death.

That discussion, Sharp admitted, was limited by an inherent stumbling block in the index’s methodology – the fact that only those tweeting about politics would have their voices heard. Those not tweeting “@MittRomney is the best” or “@BarackObama is the worst” have no influence on the index, regardless of their political beliefs.

Both Obama and Romney’s campaigns have increased their expenditures on digital outreach, with Obama already passing the $16 million he spent on online marketing in 2008, and Romney more than doubling John McCain’s $3.6 million in the same year. Accusations that some of Romney’s spending has been focused on artificially inflating his following on Twitter, which lags behind Obama’s 18 million at 800,000, have been adamantly denied by his campaign.

And any metric of success could prove useful as improvements are made to the algorithm powering the political index, but Sharp said Twitter had no immediate plans to extend the project outside of the presidential race, let alone as part of the company’s efforts to further monetize itself (Pepsi vs. Coke index anyone?).

Along with Topsy, the left-leaning Mellman Group and more conservative North Star Opinion Research partnered with Twitter to build and maintain the index along with ensuring its ideological balance. Topsy will feature additional analysis on the index’s findings as the race goes on.

June 22, 2012

People like Ana Venegas are said to be living “in the shadows.”

It’s the most annoying of all the metaphors in the immigration debate. And woefully inaccurate.

Venegas, 23, entered this country illegally as a 10-month-old baby carried across the Mexico-U.S. border by her teenage mother. She’s never been able to legalize her status. That makes her “undocumented,” if you’re someone sympathetic to her plight. And an “illegal” if you’re not.

But whatever you want to call her, the one thing you can’t say about Ana is that she’s been hiding. For 22 years she’s lived in the bright sunshine of South Gate, in a neighborhood that looks like a bonsai-tree version of the American dream.

The homes are small and orderly. The tallest shadows are those cast by the line of power-transmission towers that run nearby.

Ana grew up under those towers, always aware that there was something that separated her from most of the other children in the neighborhood, and even from most of her relatives. She first remembers being aware of it on the playground, on hot days when she and the other kids bared their arms.

“I knew I was from Mexico because of this little mark I have,” Venegas told me, referring to a vaccination scar on her shoulder. “Everyone that was born in Mexico had that mark.”

In the years that followed, what it meant to have the “mark” of a Mexican birth grew. Her life had complications most of her friends didn’t share: not being able to drive, or get a paying job, or financial aid for college, even if she was an A student. Despite all that, she graduated from Cal State L.A., just a few weeks ago.

“Getting educated made me a better person,” she told me. “It could have been easier, but it was worth it.”

When President Obama announced last week that the government would begin granting work permits to certain, young undocumented immigrants, it was all a bit anticlimactic for Ana. She’d been working so hard to overcome the obstacles in her path, and for so long, that she began to realize that her illegal status had actually made her a better person.

“I don’t know if I would have gotten the grades that I did, or achieved what I did if I hadn’t been undocumented,” she said. “For me, school doesn’t measure your intelligence. It measures your endurance. I have a lot of endurance.”

Ana and people like her persevered. In high schools, in university classrooms, in law schools, and on battlefields under the U.S. flag, they reached for public success. Instead of lingering in the metaphorical shadows, they climbed up on the stage of American achievement. In doing so, they forced all of us to face up to the contradiction of their existence.

“They pledge allegiance to our flag,” Obama said last week. “They are Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.”

That was, for me, the most remarkable thing about the Obama administration’s announcement last week: to hear a president of the United States celebrate the Americanness of a group of people who’ve been vilified as aliens and “criminals” by so many Americans.

Ana always considered herself an American, even though she’s been reminded of her otherness for as long as she can remember.

Growing up in South Gate, some Latino kids would taunt her with a certain ugly slur for illegal immigrant. Many knew the story of how she’d crossed over: with the papers of a baby boy cousin who was about the same age.

Even that cousin would tease her, she said. “He’d tell me, ‘If it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t be here.'”

Like many an American before her, Venegas took her outsider status and transformed it into the burning flame that powered her ambition. She became an assiduous follower of every rule placed before her, religious in her observance of all the routines in her young life.

“I never had to tell her to do her homework, and I never had to wake her up to go to school because she’d always wake up on her own,” Ana’s mother, Ana Luisa Gonzalez, told me in Spanish.

When I asked Gonzalez, a 42-year-old garment worker, to pin down the secret behind her daughter’s success, she answered with a phrase you hear a lot in the homes of Spanish-speaking L.A.: “Se portaba bien.” She behaved.

Ana told me much the same thing: “I just followed the rules. I showed up. I didn’t question authority.” Among other things, she had perfect attendance during four years in high school.

During her senior year at South Gate High, many of her friends got into top-notch universities: Harvard, UCLA, USC. Venegas was accepted into UC Riverside, but couldn’t afford to go without financial aid.

“My parents offered to sell the house and move to Riverside, but I didn’t want them to do that,” she said.

She went to East Los Angeles College instead, and then transferred to Cal State L.A., enduring several hours on the bus each day. Tuition increased every year, and she couldn’t work to help her parents to pay for it. More than once she considered giving up.

“If you believe in God, you also believe there’s evil in the world,” Venegas said. “And sometimes I thought, ‘Devil, you’re not going to bring me down.'”

On Saturday, she graduated from Cal State with a 3.9 grade-point average. Ana’s mother recently received U.S. residency, and Ana herself recently became engaged to a U.S. citizen. She figured she’d eventually get her legal residency anyway. But hearing the president’s words were a kind of affirmation that all her hard work meant something.

“It’s like the missing piece of the puzzle,” she told me. “Now it’s all making sense to me.”

A shadow has been lifted — not from the life of Ana Venegas, but from American discourse. Like thousands of others, Ana is here, she’s American, and she always has been. Now, perhaps, an honest conversation about immigration can begin.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  The first 27 years of life are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Ana Venegas

1 (A is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) = 16

So the number 16 rules her first twenty-seven years of life.

16 = Shocks.  Surprises.  Unexpected.  Unprecedented.

June 15, 2012

President Obama flashed anger for the first time in recent memory today as an eccentric conservative reporter interrupted his speech on immigration in the Rose Garden.

Neil Munro of The Daily Caller, a right-wing news site, shouted at Obama in the middle of his speech formally announcing looser deportation rules, “Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?”

Irritated, Obama glared at Munro and told him not to interrupt, said he “didn’t ask for an argument” and said the new order is “the right thing to do.”

The change on immigration relaxes rules for younger illegal immigrants who haven’t broken the law since coming into the country as children, a move that has riled Republicans while bringing the issue back into the fore of the 2012 election. The Homeland Security Department will no longer deport such immigrants, and work permits will be given to them.

The more lenient treatment is similar to the proposals in the DREAM Act, legislation supported by Obama but blocked in Congress.

“We’re a better nation than one that expels innocent young kids,” Obama said in his speech before he was interrupted.

The Obama administration is likely to deny that politics played a role in the announcement, but the timing is ideal for the president’s re-election campaign. In the GOP primary, Mitt Romney adopted strictly conservative positions against illegal immigration in his effort to woo right-wing voters. He backs a strong fence along the border with Mexico, opposes most amnesty and boasts of his move as Massachusetts governor to deny in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.

Democrats have said they plan to hold Romney to those positions, painting him as a candidate with extreme views on immigration. Romney’s campaign stumbled last month when the Republican National Committee’s director of Hispanic outreach told reporters that Romney was “still deciding what his position on immigration is,” fueling the notion that he holds few true convictions.

Kevin Madden, a former Romney adviser, said on MSNBC that “there are going to be a lot more questions here, I think particularly up on Capitol Hill and the Congress’s role in whether or not they believe that the president can go out and around Capitol Hill and around legislatures and around Congress on something like this.”

Obama’s announcement today is likely to curry favor with Hispanics, a key growing voting bloc that could determine the winner in November in important states like Florida, Colorado and Nevada. The president beats Romney among Hispanics in polls, but most Latinos say they disapprove of Obama’s deportation policy. Obama also plans to speak to the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials in Florida next week, as will Romney.

In an interview with ABC News, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano denied that the plan was crafted at the direction of the White House.

“No, this was developed by the department,” she said. “It was developed within my office, and it was, as I said, before a logical progression from decisions we have been making over the last three, three-and-a-half years.”

Under the new rules, up to 800,000 immigrants will be affected. Deportation will no longer apply to immigrants who came into the country before they were 16 and are now younger than 30, have lived here for five straight years, have never been convicted of a crime or graduated from high school or got a GED.

Such immigrants will be allowed to apply for a two-year work permit that can be renewed unlimited times.

GOP Rep. Steve King released a statement saying he was “outraged” by the new rules. “The American people have rejected amnesty because it will erode the Rule of Law. In much the same way, I believe the American people will reject President Obama for his repeated efforts to violate the Constitutional separation of powers,” he said.

Peter King, the Republican chairman of the House committee on homeland security, said the White House is “overstepping its authority by weakening immigration laws without Congressional approval.”
