We can argue till we are blue in the face. Wait and see the results. But Rubio will not get the nod anyway. It will be a governor.
Is there some other iffy swing state more needed by the GOP than FL.?
Well there is one other point I wanted to bring up with you. You pointed out that Rubio can speak Spanish, as if that is an important thing.
Well this is an English speaking country. The majority of my colonial ancestors spoke English and I inherited their culture. The ones that didn’t spoke French, but they used English to conduct business and government. I have -zero- interest in diluting my culture by replacing it with that of Latin America.
I realize that a good portion of the GOP will betray this culture at the drop of a hat if it means winning one election. Which is why I hold half the GOP in a contempt equal to that with which I hold Democrats.
I have my own rule, which is the campaign-in-English rule. When I run across a politician campaigning in Spanish I write him off. If you don’t know what America’s language is you aren’t fit to govern. If you aren’t willing to maintain Engish as America’s language then you aren’t fit to govern.
Rubio has already made it clear that he puts his ethnic group first when he came out against AZ 1070. So since he wants to be a latino primo let him go run against Castro; it’s about time Cubans fought for their own country. Unlike American ancestors who fought the British for 8 years, Cubans simply cut and ran; unwilling to fight for their homeland. Not the sort I want running this country.
Are you sure? Maybe Romney is smarter than we all give him credit for and he will choose Ron Paul.
Having said that, I would love to see Col Allen West in the running. Unfortunately, that will not happen.
