Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio would be the best choice of a running mate for Mitt Romney.
In an interview in Tampa with News Channel 8, the one-time presidential candidate said he was comfortable with all the potential vice presidential candidates he's heard being talked about, but thinks Rubio is "the most exciting." Giuliani said the Florida senator could help the campaign attract young people.

Except for Allen West.
Birthers in 3...2...1...
Romney should announce that he’s thinking of asking Hillary Clinto to run as Vice-President.
Big time. He must be thinking they might as well make the election a two front war and choose Rubio. GOPe against the world!
This from a cross-dresser Republican.
I believe that Rubio is nbC and I am not going to discuss this with anyone.
Just shut up Rudy.
Choosing LTC West would energize me, get me on board with the Romney campaign and get me to open the checkbook. If LTC West isnt chosen then it will be a game day decision on whether to vote Romney or Libertarian or Constitution Party. If polling shows Romney with a lead in Ohio I go with my conscience and vote 3rd/write in. If it looks like my vote is needed for Romney then I plug my nose and pray to God and pull the lever.
KOD for the US Constitution!
They think because obozo has already usurped the presidency and shredded the constitution, might as well finish the job by installing an ineligible VP Rubio???????????
Only if you want to ensure a Romney defeat . . . . . . and, he doesn't need help!! He's doing all he can to kill his chances in London!!
Rubio is ineligible. He supports amnesty. He is a first term Senator, no experience. We need to keep him in the Senate, we can't chance losing his seat. NO SENATORS FOR VP.
Bob McDonnell, popular Governor of Virgina, is the BEST and ONLY real choice for VP.
He is a CONSERVATIVE. Pro Life. Pro gun. Christian (Catholic). Pro family, has a large attractive family. Pro traditional marriage.

At a rally shortly after winner the governor's race (Washington Post, Nov. 3, 2009)
“I have made the national issues an issue in this race.”
To a CNN reporter, on how Virginia's governor race signifies national politics; his campaign attempted to nationalize the race by linking Deeds to a Democratic Congress (CNN, Oct. 25, 2009)
“Virginians will judge me on my 18-year record as a legislator and Attorney General and the specific plans I have laid out for our future not on a decades-old academic paper I wrote as a student during the Reagan era and haven't thought about in years. Like everybody, my views on many issues have changed as I have gotten older.”
In a public statement that ran in several newspapers in August, in response to the Post's story on his controversial thesis attacking feminists, homosexuals and unmarried couples he wrote as a 34-year-old student at Regent University
“For me to have my daughter over in Iraq, flying around in a Blackhawk, dodging bullets in a convoy when we were running against each other in 2005, and for my daughters to be encouraged by me to gain master's degrees for him to suggest that I somehow don't support women in the workplace is insulting.”
In response to attacks by his Democratic opponent, Creigh Deeds, on his controversial thesis (ABC News, Aug. 31, 2009)
“I'm a conservative. I've never pretended to be anything else. I believe in limited government and keeping taxes and regulation and litigation low. I believe the traditional values that have been broadly embraced by our society are good.”

I forgot, I’m from NEW YORK, not Virginia. I don’t know Bob McDonnell or anyone who does know him. I have no connection to him whatsoever except that we are fellow Christians, Conservatives, and veterans.
AND, I want to WIN this election.
For the record..... You are WRONG!
The framers knew what NBC was. The Supreme Court has stated in opinions, what NBC is.
So according to the Framers, the Constitution, and the Supreme Court, Obama is ineligible. You are entitled to your own opinion, just not your own FACTS”
1. Born on United States soil (there is some question as to exactly what that means. To be absolutely sure at this time, that would be the lower 48 states).
Don't go off on me here. Go study citizenship status as it applies to territories and possessions. It's complicated. Hawaii is a joke as we know that you can be born anywhere in the world and get a Hawaiian, United States Birth Certificate.
2. BOTH parents have to citizens at the time of the child's birth. ParentS with an “S”, PLURAL. They don't need to have been born here, just be “citizens”, naturalized or otherwise. (I guess if they have Hawaiian birth certificates, they would need other proof).
These things are FACTS! Don't give me other examples or court cases, prove THESE facts wrong.
Another RINO man crush on Rubio.
He’ll get the Bishop the Obese demographic, fer shore!
