I’m listening to Sean Hannity interview Marco Rubio about the immigration bill. Everyone involved with the immigration bill is missing the key point: implementation and oversight.
Sure, Marco Rubio is a smart guy, but he’s not going to be administering or being held accountable for the implementation. What happens when the “smart guys” in the room aren’t around when some key aspect of the bill is ignored, either willfully or mistakenly.
They have to take into consideration the bureaucratic pitfalls in fashioning their bill. If not, we’re going to be left with another monstrosity that no one can implement or even follow.
This current immigration bill is a bad idea!
I was afraid this would happen and the GOPe would try to freeze Governor Palin out of the GOP convention, with the help of Romney surrogates. But to have Chris Christie as the keynote speaker? Really??!!
That just sealed it for me. Instead of having a strong, conservative voice deliver the keynote, they pick a typical, East Coast, faux conservative like Christie. Further, to hear that Marco Rubio will be introducing Romney, at the very least, the GOP has it exactly backwards.
Folks, we need to double-down in our efforts to take the Republican Party back. It will have no future if it continues to push RINOs to the forefront and make strong conservatives like Sarah Palin stand on the sidelines at the party’s premiere event.
If ever there was a time for the grassroots to embrace rVotes, now is the time. If the GOPe continues to marginalize conservative voices, then I think it’s time to marginalize the GOPe and organize a new party.
As for the election, to me, it’s still ABO. Once this obscene election is over and Obama is shown the door, the heavy lifting must begin.
I don’t quite know what to make of this. Marco Rubio received 30% of the CPAC-Chicago straw poll vote for the best VP pick. Based on The Christian Science Monitor’s reporting from Chicago:
The vice presidential chatter around Marco Rubio intensified Friday evening when the Florida senator won a straw poll intended to test conservative inclinations about the best choice to be presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romneyâ€™s running mate.
Sen. Rubio earned 30 percent of the vote in the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll conducted in suburban Chicago at a one-day conference of the American Conservative Union, a national conservative advocacy group based in Washington. The summit attracted an estimated 2,000 people in Rosemont, a Chicago suburb.

Question: Is the Hispanic vote SO important in this election that we’ll take a freshman senator, like Dan Quayle, as Romney’s running mate?
Don’t get me wrong, I really like Marco Rubio. I just don’t see that he brings a lot of “gravitas” to the Republican ticket. But then again, I don’t view Romney as having a lot of “gravitas” from a conservative’s viewpoint.
