Yesterday I got a chance to watch Marco Rubio, Florida’s Republican senator, praise small business at a reception held by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). Those looking for Rubio to tip his hand about his vice presidential prospects came away disappointed.
At one point, Rubio said he hoped to help small business in the years he had left in the Senate. A member of the audience asked whether he was in fact measuring his time remaining in the Senate in years rather than months. Rubio replied, “Look, I love serving in the United States Senate. I know that sounds strange, but that’s the place I think I can make a difference.” He chided the Senate’s lack of urgency, calling it “frustrating.”
NFIB joined the multi-state lawsuit against President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. A Supreme Court ruling is expected next month.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
