Mis-informed Mitt really wants me to believe that he is seriously considering Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio for a running mate.
No, I don't believe it for a second. Although, Rubio has a great following in the Hispanic community, he's only been in the Senate for two years and he's only forty one years old.
Picking Rubio may blow up in his face like Palin did for McCain. It is almost like a Groundhog's Day disaster. Senator Rubio, though probably infinitely more informed on the issues than the former Duh Governor from Alaska, Palin, he has his share of baggage that the Romney camp will probably not want to deal with at this stage of the game.
Mittens has yet to answer questions about his stance on immigration. Even top Republicans are asking him to make a stand, any stand, at this point.
I mean, at least an honest answer to show that he has thoughts on the subject. He is kind of damned no matter what, anyway, if he picks Rubio, it will look like a ploy to pander to the Latino community and they can see through that gameplan....it just would't look good.
During this vetting process, Romney and camp, need to find out if the stories about Rubio embellishing his family's past are true. His stories about his Cuban exile parents seem to change and morph with every speaking engagement. I mean if he is lying about that, what else is he lying about?
Marco Rubio's been caught in a pickle when it comes to lying. That ego is something else and it shows that everything shiny isn't gold.
The Washington Post dug up some dirt on Rubio concerning a loan that he didn't disclose when he was supposed to and he has run up expenses on the Republican Party Florida Credit card. It seems that he has champagne tastes with the taxpayers' dollars.
You know that more than certain, that strip joint workers have been paid handsomely through Floridian tax money.
Mitt has come to his defense, but I'm sure thats his "out" from Senator Rubio as a serious VP choice.
It's really too much drama from a person that says he's not even interested in the V.P. position.
Besides, will Mittens really want to alienate the good old boys in the Republican network with such a potentially "controversial" choice?
