Rubio on Romney's VP Shortlist
Chris Cillizza reports that Marco Rubio is on Mitt Romney's VP shortlist.
Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is already working on his vice presidential pick. At a fundraiser in Virginia Beach yesterday, he named Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio as his running-mate shortlist. Of course, since this event was in Virginia, most of the praise went to McDonnell.
I'm sure conservative bloggers and pundits will point out that Rubio is an untested freshman Senator and former state legislator. Just like they did when Barack Obama ran in 2008. Because I know Glenn Reynolds, Michelle Malkin and Sean Hannity pride themselves on journalistic fairness.
In my defense, I had problems with Obama during the 2008 election.
There are progressives willing to ignore Obama's disregard for civil liberties. Kenneth Quinnell talked about how progressives should not call Obama a flip flopper. Quinnell went as far to say that Obama's FISA position has been consistent. Obama's office said the Senator "unequivocally opposes" immunity and "To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies." Quinnell's podcast is as laughable as Glenn Reynolds' posts about how well Bush has run the Iraq war.
I didn't get into blogging to become an unofficial campaign staffer for Barack Obama. I won't use the excuse that he is better than John McCain. I will freely disagree with Obama or any other candidate.
A Ford Pinto will get a person from point A to B faster than walking. That doesn't mean the Pinto suddenly became a great car. Just because Obama isn't John McCain doesn't mean he didn't flip flop on FISA. Citizens should question candidates positions on policy. Not worship them as if they were royalty.
It seems I had a problem the blogger who shall not be named before the 2010 election.
Obama really cracked down on those telecom companies that wiretapped. Oh wait...
Back on subject: Rubio would be a disaster as vice-president. Rubio made this staggeringly stupid statement.
America is pretty much the only military power in human history that has not used his power to conquer land and grow it's terrotory.
Rubio is clueless about the genocide of Indians or the war with Mexico to take Texas. America has fought several wars to take lands. This is the same Rubio that says the federal government has to live within its means but spent $110,000 on a Republican Party of Florida credit card and defaulted on a house. Rubio does not have the intellectual capacity to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.
