Rubio doesn't close door on VP slot
The Hill ^ | April 22, 2012 | Cameron Joseph

Posted on 04/22/2012 12:17:21 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) didn't fully close the door on accepting the vice presidential slot if Mitt Romney asked him.

Rubio, who has repeatedly denied any interest in the slot, said that he wanted to "respect the process" Romney has put in place to make a selection and would no longer address it.

"I'm not going to even discuss the process anymore. I'm going to be respectful of the process he's put in place," said Rubio on CNN'S "State of the Union" on Sunday morning.

He's in! And for those of you who will complain that he said he wasn't in, ALL (almost all) VEEP prospects initially say they're not in. In fact it is considered poor form to signal that you want the VEEP slot.

BTW, there is NO separate category as "Native Born Citizen." It is strictly a subset of Natural Born Citizen...but that won't stop the Know Nothings from weighing in on this.

HE CANNOT TAKE THE VEEP SLOT BECAUSE HE CANNOT QUALIFY TO BE PRESIDENT.

LET’S STOP YAKKING OTHERWISE, OK?

He’d be a good choice, if he’s up for it. He’s a conservative, hispanic, Floridian. Florida is a swing State. Hispanic a swing demographic. Conservatives an unspoken-for voter block at the moment.

I’ve heard Nikki Haley’s name a bit. Jeb Bush, also. Wouldn’t mind seeing Jim DeMint’s or Newt Gingrich’s name entering the VP fray.

So WHEN was Rubio naturalized because there are only TWO categories of citizenship: Natural Born and Naturalized.

You know there are folks wjho will vote for Romney if Santorum is VP. You don’t know about Rubio and then there’s the heritage thing which could be an overshadowing problem.

I heard Rubio on two programs this morning.

Rubio may be a Trojan Horse.

He could not defend Paul Ryan budget Candy Crowley CNN, basically
threw him under the bus on food stamp reductions (has exploded including
stimulus increase in benefits) and restricting illegal aliens to claim child
tax care credit.

Rubio ran away from these simple ideas.

Rubio also kept playing identity politics. The Republicans have to change
their message so they can gain more support among Hispanics. That was
Rubio said today.

Rubio is worse than a regular RINO Republican. He is infiltrator like Barack
Obama. Barack Obama infiltrated his party, and he didn’t care that 2010
the House changed. As long as his long term goals to destroy Constitutional
America are

Rubio may be the Barack Obama of the Republican party.

He does not have a unifying message like Reagan. He plays along with
identity politics, like Obama.

He is not the great white Hope.

What heritage "thing?" Santorum won't get picked because he has a tendency to speak without thinking such as when he slammed Zimmerman before many facts were known.

GEE! I’m almost surprised you didn’t mention that Rubio is the Son of Satan.

If he’s in, he’s putting personal greed above the rule of law because he is not eligible and thus he is not worthy of the spot.

This question is serious, not intended to argue, but really want to know:

What is it called when you’re born in the USA of parents who are not citizens?

It’s not called “naturalized”... we all know what that means.

And many here claim that it’s not called “natural born”.

Then what is it called, because I’ve never heard it called anything specifically different from “natural born” and if it’s different than “natural born” then I to know what the name of it is.

Thanks. Just curious.

“HE CANNOT TAKE THE VEEP SLOT BECAUSE HE CANNOT QUALIFY TO BE PRESIDENT.”

Doesn’t seem to stop the Repub establishment from chatting up his name. IMO, Allen West would be my choice.

That is because the Republican establishment is in on the Obama deception. Both sides only care about power now, have sworn allegiance to the devil and care not one fig about principle.
