She just doesn’t like Rubio because he’s a Conservative.
Coulter suggested Romney pick someone like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Yeah right Ann. Christie Creme for VP would be just great. A fat loud mouthed RINO Gov from a state the GOP has no shot of winning would be a great pick. This woman is a dope.
Putting Coulter on the air is a mistake. Real fruitloop; closet liberal- and Muslim- lover
Romney is One Big Ass Mistake America.
Christie is more tested than Rubio? Don’t know about that. They have both been through exactly one statewide campaign, Rubio in a bigger state with a bigger population and many more TV markets. I wouldn’t pick Rubio FWIW, but her argument is garbage. Doesn’t really matter because Romney will not be getting my vote either way.
I might buy that if she hadn’t been backing Romney whose “record” is as a liberal.
Condoleeza Rice lost a lot of her luster with me when she commended Obama for making Hillary Sec. of State. Also, she never had a husband or children and that could hurt her in presidential politics. When was last time we had a president who never married? I think we need to go back to James Buchanan.
Rubio would over shadow her damn Romney.
Rand Paul, please...or Governor Martinez.
What does this even mean? By her reasoning with regard to Kyl, Perry was just as tested (just not a good debater) having served in state government for almost 2 decades.
As much as VP picks matter (which is not much and Rubio probably isn't going to help the GOP nominee with Latino voters), Rubio is a fine pick. He's conservative and popular with the base of the Republican party. That alone helps Romney, especially after this primary process, and that's something you can't say about Kyl.
Seriously, who wants John Kyl as a VP nominee? Christie is a little better I suppose, but John Kyl? Really?
While I like Rubio a lot, he is NOT natural born.
Somebody better get Coulter a SECOND set of knee pads. She gonna be on her knees for awhile.
Look, to paraphrase Harry Truman who knew some things about politics, if you try to pretend you're a Democrat while you run against another Democrat, the Democrats will chose the real thing every time.
That whole piece is based on the idea Romney runs as a Republican ~ but he can still be stopped, or if not stopped, left without the Conservatives campaigning for him.
Frankly, it would be much easier for a Conservative to run against BOTH Obama and Romney simultaneously.
You'd only need one speech!
