Be a Pitbull, Mitt, and Please Get Marco Rubio to Join You

| Comments (2)

From the get-go presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has not been my favorite choice as candidate.  Romneycare is a problem, as is moderate Mitt’s refusal to denounce it as a mistake.  Also bothersome is the fear that he might model his campaign after the campaign of John McCain in 2008: Mr. Nice-Guy-Middle-of-the-Road, Mr. Cross-the-Aisle, Mr. Fire-Any-Campaign-Aide-Who-Speaks-Negatively-About-Obama-Or-Brings-Up-His-Past.  And we all know how that turned out.

But all bothers and fears aside, it looks like Mitt will be the republican candidate this fall, and though I have not celebrated personally his rise, I have to admit that over the past few weeks, he has sent some messages indicating that perhaps he does not plan to be the second coming of McCain.  First, he has actually made statements that would have gotten him instantly fired from John McCain’s 2008 campaign team — warnings about gun rights, for instance, along with comments about Obama’s secret agenda and statements that channel Ronald Reagan.  As one near and dear to me pointed out, Mitt Romney wants this desperately, so here’s hoping he’ll do what needs to be done to engage in what the brilliant Charles Krauthammer has warned is sure to be one of the dirtiest races in history.

What will really seal the deal for conservatives struggling to unite behind someone we have viewed in the past as a flip-floppy moderate will be Mr. Romney’s choice of running mate.  I thus join other conservatives in sending out our heartfelt pleas to Florida senator Marco Rubio to consider joining Mitt on the republican ticket.  Senator Rubio has told us he wants to wait to seek his place on the national stage, but our nation cannot wait.  If this current president is granted four more years to dismantle and transform the nation (and apparently to sell us out to other countries), if he is granted four more years to gut our founding principles about which Senator Rubio speaks so eloquently, there may be no national stage left for Senator Rubio to take.  So let us all hope that he will change his timeline, and make the left’s worst nightmare come true with a Romney/Rubio republican ticket.

    I’d take Allen West, too. Any day.

    Me, too! A Romney/West ticket would also have the opposition shaking.
