Posted on 03/22/2012 7:48:01 AM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
Bush, 59, the son of a president and brother of another, pushed aside any interest in running with Romney. But he has strong feelings on whom he wants Romney to pick as a running mate.
Marco Rubio, he said of the freshman Florida GOP senator, who served as a volunteer on Bushs governors campaign. Bush described Rubio, 40, as dynamic, joyful, disciplined and principled.
He is the best orator of American politics today, a good family man. He is not only a consistent conservative, but he has managed to find a way to communicate a conservative message full of hope and optimism, Bush said.

I like Marco, but is he constitutionally qualified to be President?
Nana: Romney should pick up his duds and leave...
I am not going to get into that NBC stuff, but I simply wonder if Romney’s ego will allow somebody with more charisma than he on the tickt.
It's all he knows...
Thanks for the input John Ellis Pierce Bush.
How about letting me grow my own orange tree in my backyard without your thugs coming onto the property to cut it down?
Marco Rubio was born in this country. What other constitutional qualifications are there?
Rubio is a good conservative but if he was born in 1971 and his parents were not naturalized citizens until 1975 then he is not a natural born citizen. He cannot serve as president.
Romney and Rubio... Two Mormons or One mormon and one ex-mo?
Go away, Mrs. Bush!
You aren’t allowed to run by yourself...
What other constitutional qualifications are there?
Your parents have to be citizens at the time of your birth for many years. That is the major problem people have with Obama. His father was not born in America. This will never go away if Republicans start ignoring constitutional requirements.
I think he will pick Susana Martinez. He has mentioned her many times in his speeches and answers to who he would pick as VP.
A RomneyBot who needs a hug...
Rubio is a citizen, but he is not a natural born citizen. Evidently Jeb Bush is working with the cabal that is trashing our constitution. If both parties do it, then the trashing will be complete.
And Rubio is not the complete conservative that some people seem to think.
Most likely Jeb and his father discussed this when they met with Obama in the White House.
Shamnesty alert. Jebbie is part of the GOP cheap labor cult.
Hey, Romney/McCain. Wouldn't that be swell?
You mean Rob Portman? (the only person alive to have less personality than Mitt Romney)
Let’s Cal Coolidge, when he was alive, had more personality than Romney. But, now that he’s dead, I don’t know. Problem is, he’s also from Massachusetts.
Marco and Romney would not see eye to eye. Rubio is a leader. Romney is a puppet for the establishment and a “yes” man.
