“Would this be a good thing, or a very, very bad thing?”
As Rubio is not a Natural Born Citizen and ineligible to be POTUS, this would be avery bad thing.
I agree. Some feel that his being on the GOP ticket would perforce make the DNC go after him for not having (any) citizen parents at the time of his birth. No way. I think that they wouldn't say a peep, and would allow the"Obama" precedent be reinforced by a Rubio candidacy.
I think the GOP-e is in for a very rude awakening if they think that there aren't enough people who know of and care about this issue to make them lose in November if they try to put this guy up. Of course, they may very well desire just that.
Stupid Sellout Party.
