US Senator Marco Rubio (FL-R) Says He Has No Interest in Being Republican VP


Tea Party favorite and new Florida US Senator Marco Rubio says he has no interest in being a Republican VP nominee in 2012. And why should he? Fresh off his landslide victory in the 2010 Florida Senate race over Crist and Meeks, the political world is Rubio’s oyster.  Marco Rubio is a star in the GOP and has a shining carrer ahead of him. There is no reason why the conservative Rubio should spend 2 years in the Senate and bolt for the useless position of VP. The 39 year old Rubio has a tremendous future and will be a power player in the Republican party for years to come. Rubio should not be concerning himself with 2012 …

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) said Monday that he has no interest in becoming his party’s vice presidential nominee in 2012.

Rubio, a newly elected senator who’s considered a rising star in the GOP, rejected running on the Republican Party ticket in two years.

“No, and I don’t spend any time thinking about it,” Rubio said on 92.5 radio in Fort Myers when asked if he’d be open to serving as the party’s vice presidential nominee.

“I’m flattered that people would ask that question, because I think they mean it in a complimentary way. But, by the same token, I recognize that this job — this one job that I wanted, I wanted to be a U.S. senator, not a vice presidential candidate, not a presidential candidate,” Rubio added. “I didn’t run to use it as a steppingstone, I ran because I wanted to be a U.S. senator.”

However, Democrats don’t get too giddy that Rubio will not be there in 2012,  look for this star to be running for President in 2020. As stated at CNN, Rubio’s resume and story is far too compelling not to one day be at the top of the ticket.

There are many reasons to place Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, at the top of any 2012 vice presidential shortlist. He’s young, telegenic, a talented fundraiser, and appealing to the conservative base. And perhaps most importantly, he’s a Hispanic hailing from the nation’s largest battleground state.

      I, for one, agree with Rubio; I have no interest in him being the Republican VP.
      SM: hahaha, funny.

      Hate to break it to you, he will be running for President in the not too distant future and Democrats are scared as hell of him. Handsome conservative young family man of Cuban descent from a swing state like FLA.

      Se ya in 2010 or if hell freezes over in 2012 and Obama wins, he will be there in 2016.

      I am writng in regard to the escalating gas price’s that no one seem’s to concerned about,you were elected to represent the people,as of yet ,i haven’t seen very much of that being done in this area.The Tom THumb in Ponce De Leon has went from 3.13 per gal in the middle of 3.54 as of today,that is nothing but a spirit of GREED.Why can’t our elected senator’s bring the petroleum Co. to some accountability,and it isn’t all due to the middle east crisis,they jump price’s at any given oppurtunity.Now i know you probably wont read this,but some political aid,but you sir ,are accountable to GOD,who allowed you this postion,think about it,thye one to whom we all are ACCOUNTABLE.
