UCBcomedy: Vetting Mitt’s Veeps: Marco Rubio, Latinos for Romney?on July 20, 2012 at 6:00 am
By now you know the story. Mitt Romney needs to choose a running mate. Beth Myers is here to help. Each week she interviews a new potential Veep, and this week she speaks with Marco Rubio, Romney’s hope for raising his flagging Latino voter numbers. Beth learns that Rubio does not want to appear to be needy or weak and will not ask for anything unless it is offered, as you can see by his scalded crotch. This is one stoic man, if a little hard to read.
Rubio – darling of the Tea Party, had this to say about immigration:
“First of all, we need to be the pro-legal immigration party; we can’t just be the anti-illegal immigration party. I think we also have to recognize that the people who are here illegally and undocumented are human beings, most of whom are doing exactly what many of us would do if our children were hungry and our families were desperate.”
Rubio sounded almost…Democratic – and compassionate! Despite his other wacky Republican views, this alone could cost Rubio the Veep spot – after being tarred, feathered and ostracized.
