Republicans try to shut down talk of becoming VP
The Associated Press

WASHINGTON —
Quote :
Republicans considered to be up-and-comers are scrambling to declare a lack of interest in becoming Mitt Romney's running mate.

With the former Massachusetts governor poised to win the GOP nomination in June, if not earlier, some of the focus has shifted to possible choices for the No. 2 spot on the ticket. But no one is rushing forward and many of the top prospects are trying to shut down the conversation before it begins.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida says it won't be him. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says she'll say 'no' if Romney offers her the slot. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty says he took himself out of the running and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez also says she's not interested.
Hmmm....no one interested in committing political suicide by having to carry water for the serial flip-flopper?

Republicans like Mitch Daniels, Chris Christie, John Thune and Jeb Bush decided not to run because they knew they could not beat an incumbent president who turned the economy around, saved the US auto industry and killed bin laden.

They sure as hell don't want anything to do with an out of touch robot who has flipped on every issue under thea sun and has more time and money than he knows what to do with.

I see "Caribou Barbie" has weighed in.....
Quote :
Sarah Palin continues to push for Rep. Allen West as a 2012 vice presidential candidate, calling him a "rogue" choice for the GOP.

"When I talk about going rogue, what I want to do is encourage the GOP nominee to not think that they have to go with somebody necessarily safe," Palin said on Fox News' "Hannity" Tuesday night following the Wisconsin, Maryland and District of Columbia primaries.

"I love that (West) has that military experience. He is a public servant willing to serve for the right reasons. He understands the Constitution. He understands our national foreign policy issues that must be addressed," Palin added.

Palin earlier pitched West, R-Fla., as a possible VP candidate in March.

The topic of picking a GOP vice presidential candidate was also mentioned when Palin co-hosted the "Today" show Tuesday morning, but she did not mention West's name.

"What I would advise the nominee, Mitt Romney, or whomever the nominee is: Don't necessarily play it safe and do just what the GOP establishment expects them to do," Palin said. "It doesn't matter if that person has national level experience or not, they're gonna get clobbered by the lamestream media who does not like the conservative message."

Please,please go "rogue". That worked out so well for you in 2008.

Scratch Marco Rubio...
Marco Rubio Not Being Vetted to Be Mitt Romney’s Running Mate
Reason #1,IMO....
Rubio Says He Would Immigrate To The U.S. Illegally ‘If My Kids Went To Sleep Hungry Every Night’
Quote :

In the new memoir An American Son, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) — the son of Cuban immigrants — reveals that he would be willing to cross the border into the United States illegally to provide a better life for him and his family:

Quote :
“Many people who come here illegally are doing exactly what we would do if we lived in a country where we couldn’t feed our families,” Rubio writes in his book, which went on sale Tuesday. “If my kids went to sleep hungry every night and my country didn’t give me an opportunity to feed them, there isn’t a law, no matter how restrictive, that would prevent me from coming here.”
