  •  nope on rubio because.... (4+ / 0-)

    1- former mormon (former as in when running in FL and needed cuban support switched to being catholic)...1 mormon is enough for the repub base....predictions are 20% of evangelicals will sit at home as vs vote for a mormon.  2 will be 2 too many

    2-  signed the "stand your ground law" as fl legislature....will help motivate the left and AAs to get out the vote for Obama and repubs don't want to help our GOTV efforts

    3-  cubans are not "Latino" Latinos.  The Latino community will not fall in line and vote repub for a cuban upset castro took their families' mansion away during the revolution  

    4- sketchy (read lied) about past

    and he hasn't even been veted on a national stage yet.  tons of potential skelletons waiting to fall out of that closet

    Romney needs a mexican, or central american, or south american Latino who is preferably baptist but how many of those are repubs and in politics at this moment in time?  They exist but in politics already and a repub already???
