26-AUG-11 Edition: News media taking stance on Marco Rubio eligibility

In a speech last night at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., Rubio reportedly received laughter as he clowned, "I have no interest in serving as vice president for anyone who could possibly live all eight years of the presidency."

"What happens in politics is the minute you start thinking there's something else out there for you, it starts affecting everything you do," he added. "The reality of it is I'm not going to be the vice presidential nominee, but I look forward to working with whoever our nominee is."

Well, there goes my dream ticket for 2012 of Herman Cain and Marco Rubio! It doesn't sound like Senator Rubio is interested in being on the GOP ticket in the VP position. It may be that Rubio understands and respects the Constitution and does not want to have any questionable Constitutional issues facing him and the possible next President of the United States.

Maybe it is time to clearly define eligibility, in today's terms, in a Constitutional Amendment. There are just too many opinions regarding the definition of "natural born citizen," and the issue continues to grow in complexity and vagueness.

Until the matter of Constitutional eligibility is definitely settled, we may have to keep this Senator from Florida in the wings. It's sad, because he'd be a great running mate with my favorite Republican candidate, Herman Cain.

Think about what I just wrote above while you watch the following segment from Hannity:

I'm just sayin'...

News media taking stance on Marco Rubio eligibility
Those asking question called 'racists,' 'misguided adherents to Constitution'

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)
MIAMI, Fla. – Some national news media are declaring that U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is a natural-born citizen and thus eligible for the presidency or vice presidency, even though Rubio's constitutional eligibility remains unclear and the popular Florida Republican has himself downplayed any interest in running on a White House ticket.

In a Daily Caller piece today titled "Coming soon: Rubio 'birthers,'" journalist Matt Lewis warns, "There is already a movement afoot (led by some on the fringe) to disqualify him from serving as president (which would presumably disqualify him from serving as vice president). That's right – some are arguing that Rubio is not eligible because he is not a 'natural-born citizen.'"

Don't be afraid!

  1. Have you ever seen the movie, "The Adjustment Bureau"? Had Matt Damon not been available for the lead role, I think that Marco Rubio would have been a good substitute!
