But I don't even think we need Rubio to win in Florida anymore
I do think Pubs ought to look again at Newt before just caving into the DC establ. Newt’s new Contract might generate enough thought by Indies et al that they too would consider him. He is not only brilliant but a real American patriot.
Cain/Rubio IMHO are UNBEATABLE. Both come from humble beginnings. Both have little to no baggage. Both are amazingly articulate honest focused and speak from their heart. We have got to stop the MSM train of Romney Perry. All Cain needs is face time and money. Heaven equals an Obama Cain debate. Can you imagine a debate between Biden and Rubio ?
Well, that does it for me. IF Newt is this unaware the guy can’t legally be VP...then again my original thoughts of Newt remain the same. He’s fun to watch in the debates...but he isn’t fit to be president.
I disagree. A freshman senator next in line for president??? Yeah, freshman senators make such great executives!
If Newt said it, it just makes me suspicious of Rubio. lol
I would love to see some push to have southern representation in the WH. The dixie states have been a very reliable voting block, but the last Republican to even be on the ticket from Dixie was Andrew Johnson, under Lincoln. And the Republican party has never had a nominee for President from Dixie. It would be nice to see if someone from a southern state could shake things up.
As a Texan, I dont consider Texas to be part of “The South.” There is a lot of Texas, especially in the piney woods, that is southern, but Texas can also be considered western, plains, or even midwest. I would like to see a Texas push in the House though.
I thought he wasn’t a Natural Born Citizen....don’t tell me that we are going to be like the Democrats and ignore that. Soon we will be electing a guy who was not even born in the U.S. (besides Obama). I am talking a guy who says he was born in Mexico and is running and wins. The founders wanted two generations of Americans before allowing to run. This is true right?
We could hold the WH for the next 16 years with Rubio as VP.
In my view, Marco Rubio is no more qualified to be President or Vice President than Hussein was when he was immaculated. I like Marco Rubio right where he is, and I look forward to enough older Senators retiring that the day comes when Marco is one of the Senior Republican leaders in the Senate.
We need to send him reinforcements, not take him away from the job he was elected to do.
I disagree. There is more rock star shine on Rubio than there is substance. He has made some disturbing statements and moves in his 9 month tenure as Senator. In a Meet the Press appearance, he opposed the Ryan plan when it was first unveiled. He was one of the first on board -— along with Lieberman, Graham and McCain -— to agree with Ubama in “recognizing” the NTC in Libya as the legitimate government. These, and other moves, lead me to conclude that he is not as bright as first surmised, has no clear and steady convictions, and is alarmingly immature re foreign policy.
Illegal alien protectors, shamnesty, immigration "normalization" proponents are an anathema to conservatism, period!!
