Translation; "Whoops. I thought I was playing to the box of rocks crowd last time. Really, I'm on board with whatever hides my true colors. Everybody knows the earth is billions of years old. Yep."

Another Say Anything to Everyone (based on their beliefs) Republican presidential contender.

He'll live to regret this minimal gesture towards rationality during the next GOP presidential primaries.

So Rubio admits a mistake and gets bashed by his opponents for his trouble; presumably by the crazies among his supporters too.

Locker, you write, Someone must have attended a mandatory “How to Appear Centerist” training session.

Well, if the political atmosphere gives political opponents no credit for goodwill, no leeway to correct an error, and no allowance for honest disagreement, that kind of behavior will ensue.

I find it laughable that you find this to be an admission of a mistake and a misguided attack on poor old Marc Rubio. His own party wants to use him as a potential Presidential candidate, some image consultant figured his comment would be used against him so he flip-flopped.

There is no good will, there is no error correction and there is no honest disagreement. Creationist in deceptive clothing, period.

Considering Rubio compared teaching evolution to Castro's education policies, I don't think he's entitled to goodwill and honest disagreement.

If American politics continues its deliberate, unnecessary polarization---I hope it won't but fear it will---, few indeed of us will be laughing when the chickens come home to roost.

The bigots are already convinced he's not a citizen, so his candidacy is a non-starter.

Marco Rubio's parents were not naturalized as Citizens until 1975, Marco was born in 1971, therefore according to the "Birther" definition of Natural Born Citizen Rubio is not eligible to hold the office of President. Bobby Jindal is not eligible either because his parents also were not citizens at the time of his birth. Jindal was born less than 6 months after they arrived here from India.

Just ask the birthers, they happily throw Rubio and Jindal under the bus in order to keep their delusion that they can still force Obama out of office alive. Plus it makes a very good cover for the people who don't want them in office because of their ethnicity. It gives them a "legitimate" reason to oppose them both without resorting to open racism, convenient huh?

Do you honestly think that when Rubio said that the age of the earth was a great mystery and it was a theological belief, that represents a 'mistake'?

I no longer give Republican politicians the benefit of the doubt on issues like this one. Rubio is walking it back because he got stung by the negative PR associated with admitting his creationist beliefs, and that's the only motivation for these remarks.

More importantly, he doesn't just talk about it, Rubio has actively worked to legitimize the teaching of creationism in Florida public schools. He's now pretending to "correct" himself because he can't continue doing this kind of work with the media spotlight on him.

I can't tell any longer of Republicans like Rubio have political positions or world views based on a personal belief or because they pander to their base and say what they expect the base wants to hear.

Exactly. Rubio ought to be judged on his actions as a legislator here. I don't know why this guy is seen as the future of the Republican party and conservatism. The only difference between Rubio and the other clowns is age. He's just as clugeless and ignorant as the others if not more so.

What's unnecessary about this polarization? As I see it, the batshit insane have taken over the GOP, and the faster they are ridden out of town on a rail, the better.

Huh? If they're born in the U.S., and with the sole exception of children of foreign diplomats who by a technical twist of language are deemed to be on their "home soil" and who according to international law are exempt from our laws, then the child has at least the option upon reaching majority of declaring themselves a US citizen. And they'd not be immigrants. They done bin borned citizens. (Tawkin southrun now.)

We're casting GOP Primary 2016 now. Jindal and Rubio will play the role of Herman Cain.
