Re: Vice President Marco Rubio?

part 2

He  was going to be a post-partisan uniter, to bring Americans together. And three  and a half years later, the president, quite frankly, has become just like  anyone else in Washington, D.C. And in his obsessive effort to win his  reelection, he has lost himself and he has lost what makes him different. And  this issue of they’ve used the bin Laden raid is one example about how this  administration is just like everybody else.”

It’s an argument that won’t appeal to the 30-something percent  of the electorate who will vote for Obama under any circumstances and are now  spending their time explaining and excusing his failures. But Obama won because  he inspired millions of new voters to invest their faith in him and persuaded  others to support his cause. It’s those voters who will be so important this  time around – and their decisions about whether to back him again, to stay home  or to support Romney, will go a long way to determining who wins the  election.

Rubio spoke to them Sunday morning—and, if Mitt Romney was  watching, it’s hard to believe he didn’t see the potential of having Rubio as a  full-time spokesman on his behalf this fall.

That is what much of the current speculation about  Rubio-as-running mate misses. It’s been largely a focus on geography and  ethnicity – a steady stream of musing about his ability (or alleged inability)  to move Hispanic voters to the Romney column and theorizing about whether the  mere presence of his name would win Florida for Romney. The whole thing has a  static quality about it as if what Rubio actually did on the ticket was somehow  secondary.

It’s not. And the strongest argument for Rubio’s inclusion on  the ticket, in spite of concerns about his age, relative inexperience, and a  challenging friend, is how Rubio would actually perform as a candidate. The quality of his appearance on Fox News Sunday is the rule, not the  exception. On the stump, he usually speaks without notes and in thirty minutes,  with seemingly little effort, can transform a room of sleepy senior citizens  into a raucous crowd of would-be reformers ready to put up yard signs until  Election Day. Beyond that, imagine a television ad in which running mate Rubio  speaks directly to the camera and tells the story of his upbringing, of his  mother working as a maid and his father as a bartender so that their children  might have opportunities that they did not. In Rubio’s telling, it’s both  exceptional and typical – a moving tale of family sacrifice that will be  familiar to so many across the country.

There are reasons that Romney might want another running mate  and reasons Rubio might prefer to remain in the Senate. But if Romney decides to  ask Rubio to be considered and eventually to run with him, I suspect it’ll have  much less to do with Rubio’s name and his native state than it will with what  Rubio would do as a running mate and vice president.

Re: Vice President Marco Rubio? FULL INTERVIEW ON FOX

CHRIS WALLACE INTERVIEW MARCO RUBIO ON  FOX 5/6/2012

 

Marco Rubio on FOX News Sunday - Grand Slam!!! (Vanity) May 6, 2012

I've been torn between Senator Rob Portman of Ohio and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida for the GOP Vice Presidential spot. Marco Rubio was on "FOX News Sunday With Chris Wallace" today. OMG, the dude was AWESOME!!! He did not miss a step; sharp, sensible, intelligent answers to every question. I was amazed at how smart this guy is. Don't know for sure, but, you might be able to see the interview on FOX.
