Skip to comments.Time To Draft Rubio For VP
Posted on 01/31/2012 9:49:41 PM PST by reformedcrat
Forceful, unapologetic articulation is a new requirement for Republicans: it is not only a good track record or voting record, conservatives also demand the ability to forcefully articulate conservative principles. Just ask Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Rubio is the Cuban Scott Brown. Run as a conservative, then show your true colors. (And “Hispanic” is a word invented by Richard Nixon in an earlier attempt at race based pandering for votes.)
No, McCain didn’t pick a moderate for his VP. The conservative he did pick kept him from losing worse than he did.
If Romney is the nominee, I don’t give a rip who’s the VP.
NOT voting for that ticket.
“The saints, apostles, martyrs, and a choir of angels could could appear on my front lawn in a cloud of glory to call on me personally to vote for Romney and I would tell them all to go straight to hell right before I turned on the sprinklers.
I will never vote for Romney.”
I am envious of this glorious post.
Natural born citizen means citizen born of two parents who were citizens at the time of birth. This parents were not citizens of the US when he was born. PERIOD
I agree 100%.
I totally agree. When I saw the headline that Rubio said whoever wins Florida will get the nomination, it was fairly obvious to me that he’s a closet Romney supporter. Ugh.
Bookmarked that thread. Thanks for posting the link. Didn’t a Georgia judge just rule that Obama cannot be on the Georgia primary ticket because he is not a NBC?
Forget it . Not natural born and he knows he won’t be able to get away with it like Obozo has .
I wanted to let you know your post really made me ROFALMAO!
Apart from the fact that he can speak to the pool boy without an interpreter, just what exactly are his qualifications for high national office?
“Babies born in the U.S. hold citizenship here even if their parents are not citizens.”
Oh please. I can barely stand the ignorance any longer.
This is the TRAP! McCain would have lost by an additional 20,000,000 votes if he didn’t have Palin at VP!!!!! Watch for the same strategy. If it happens you only have one last hope in voting the GOP ticket and that is thaT Romney dies in office right after taking the oath. Just saying!
Good one JIM!
In the oral argument of Nguyen one of the Justices joked about the literal meaning of that clause as written
“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;”
As Written it means that no one can run for President unless they were a natural born Citizen OR a citizen of the United states ...either qualifier.... AT THE TIME OF THE ADOPTION . After those people were dead , no one could be President.
Yes, that is what it says.
So if that wasn’t their intent what did they really mean.
Natural born citizen OR citizen of the US at time of Adoption. Years down the road they knew the second wouldn’t be needed. It was only needed in the beginning.
So if you don’t take it as written - what could they have meant....
So where is it today.
Today, you have Kim Wong Ark that very likely will not be overturned and a Court of Appeals case that says Kim Wong Ark indicates Obama can run for President.
It is possible that Kim Wong Ark could be overturned. You never know. But to say that it is clear that Obama can’t run for President is just plain wrong.
Justice Fuller, in the dissent of Wong Kim Ark, didn’t agree that Ark should be able to run for President. He knew the majority opinion would allow it and felt that it set the wrong precedent.
I happen to agree.
But it is what it is....
You are wrong.
Your interpretation will not stand up.
You, and the dozen or so people who agree with you on this matter, have actually become “a law unto yourselves” as you refuse to debate the points that the VAST MAJORITY of legal authorities make, to prove you wrong.
