Rubio needs to be the right choice! He has what it takes, he is a republican first and foremost and he is hispanic. Just think of all the undecided latino votes and all the misled latinos he could bring to the right choice. I am married to a latino, she has always been misled by the left and their false guidings, until I explained and showed her the lefts misguidances and all their lies. Thanks to Obama I have been proven right over and over again and again. God Bless America and Her Citizens.

Rubio is a Hispanic first. Like all Hispanics are. Hispanics are among the worst immigrants America has ever let in the door because of their intense disloyalty to the country. It needs to be slammed shut from them for a very long time if not forever. Because of Hispanics, we are unable to secure our southern border. Because of Hispanics communism is a greater threat domestically than ever before.

And because of Hispanics, if you disagree with their participation in the US government's WASP genocide, you become an enemy of state.

That is what Rubio represents.

You just described Obama, like I said it is the lack of correct leadership for the hispanics. If you put requirements on their entry into the US you will keep out the bad. The liberals have created this disregard for patriotism in this country by their political correctness. I believe in calling a spade a spade, if you tell the truth about something or someone, how is it a hate crime or being prejudice? I respect your view and concerns, but I think it is unfair to judge all hispanics because of our incompetent government and their governing capabilities. Guessing by your name I would say your Irish, I seem to recall the oppression that Irish suffered when they first came to this country...

You're full of it.
And a rather bigoted comment as well
(newsflash: hispanics are not all alike)

...IF RUBIO is selected as the VP, then ALL arguments regarding 0's eligibility are null and void...

The difference is; Rubio will produce his birth certificate and he was born on US soil to immigrant parents, just like my father was.

...JUST being born here doesn't make a person a natural born citizen... it does make that person a citizen, but the two are not the same.

I really don't think he wants it.

I think he does. He's just being coy. He's making several moves to prepare himself. Moreover, he would add a lot to the ticket, making it more electable. His strongest attribute is that he explains conservative principles in a way that is clear and convincing. Being an hispanic from Florida doesn't hurt either.

Romney needs someone who will take a harder line of rhetoric than he is willing to take, kind of a good cop-bad cop routine. Both Rubio and Christy fill that requirement. Others, not so much.
As frontrunner Mitt Romney continues to solidify his status as the likely nominee, speculation is turning to potential VP picks for the GOP ticket in November. Many names have been thrown around, but how do the candidates actually feel?

Let's take stock of the current crop:

Marco Rubio: Sen. Rubio is probably the politician who has built the most buzz in recent months. His endorsement of Romney recently was a help for the frontrunner and he has built a good relationship with the Massachusetts politician. Betting site Intrade gives him a 25% chance of being the VP pick.
