Marco Rubio Supporting Jeb Bush For VP...

Gov. Jeb Bush
Sen. Marco Rubio
Tea Party favorite Marco Rubio, who earlier endorsed Mitt Romney has announced his support for Jeb Bush to be named the Vice Presidential candidate on the Republicans national ticket.

As the moderate Romney continues to strengthen his support among the republican party establishment, and the more conservative wing of the party is beginning to coalesce around  the presumptive nominee it is looking more and more that...  the more things change the more they actually stay the same. The bottom line folks is the choice in November 2012 is almost certain to be between  Obama and Obama Light. The only real difference is Obama Light (Romney)  actually has had real life business experience and real business accomplishments.

As for Rubio, well I guess he just reenforced his hand with the party power structure. He is a big "R" establishment statist republican after all.

(CNN) – Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, who consistently makes the short list of potential GOP vice-presidential candidates, on Sunday offered a ringing endorsement of Jeb Bush for the No.2 spot.

Bush, the former Florida governor, recently said he hoped Rubio would accept a potential offer from presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to serve on the ticket, and Rubio returned the compliment.

"Well that's very nice of Jeb. I hope he'll say yes if future President Romney asks him," the senator from Florida said of his political mentor in an interview set to air on CNN's "State of the Union." "I think he'd be a fantastic vice president."

Despite continual questions regarding his political future, Rubio vowed to stay out of the "veepstakes" chatter going forward, given that the official process is now in place.

Romney appointed Beth Myers last week to head his search for the individual who will complete the GOP ticket heading into the November general election.

"The last thing he needs are those of us in the peanut gallery to be saying what we would or would not do," Rubio told CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley. "I know that Mitt Romney's going to make a great choice for vice president."

The first term senator and tea party favorite on Thursday said he would reject a vice-presidential proposal, adding his focus is on his Senate tenure. He and Romney are scheduled to campaign together on Monday.

  1. You are right: Rubio is a strictly establishment kinda guy. My friends in the Florida tea party movement told me this a couple years ago even.

    1. In American politics there are no true "rebels" with integrity any longer. It is all about "selling out" to the highest bidder. In other words the special interest best positioned to insure secure the politicians reelection, over and over and over again. The same holds true of either party. Unfortunately the reality is the both party's.

      The brightest, the individual with the most integrity, the person who is willing to consider all alternatives and chose the the most ethical as well as the one most LIKELY to work, the individual that has respect for the rule of law and the dignity and rights of the individual, the person who will stand by the right simply because it is right regardless of consequence simply does not exit in politics today. WHY? Because to do so no longer wins elections.

      Principle no longer matters. All that is important is winning the next election, no matter the bullsh*t one has to spew to get elected. Frankly I've had it. It just isn't going to change, and perhaps it no longer matters...
