The only change they really want is to change the rest of what Americans have to their pockets ! Romney wants to kick all the old folks off Social Security, and let them all starve to death, ans is itching to start a war with Iran, now he plays the old game of politic to the hilt with a Cuban-American, who probably is not even eligable to be a Vice President. Funny how the Fundamentalists were all calling him a CULTIST, but are now falling all over themselves to elect him. Tells me a lot about the Religious Right and what sheysters they really are.

They had emigrated to the United States in 1956. Neither were American citizens when Marco was born in 1971 but were later naturalized as U.S. citizens in 1975. This is what disqualifies Marco from being Constitutionally eligible for POTUS. There is no dispute that Marco IS an American citizen. He is NOT a “Natural Born Citizen” because “neither” parent was an American citizen at the time of his birth. Therefore, it will take a Constitutional Amendment to make him eligible. Now, some people may accept the fact that he APPEARS to love America, JUST LIKE OBAMA DID! How do we know that he hasn’t been groomed for this position since he was born? And how do we know where his loyalties lay? Because he said so? The founding fathers specifically placed the clause “Natural Born Citizen”, generally assumed to mean “born to American parent(S), plural, instead of “American Citizen” (which would be clearly understood to mean any “citizen” who met the other criteria in the Constitution) could be President, REGARDLESS of the loyalty issue! Unlike the lower level politicians, the Office of the President must have a person of the highest integrity, ethics, respect for the Constitution and must never harbor loyalty to any other country but America!

To be VP you have to be eligible for the POTUS and he does not meet that criteria. He is ineligible to be VP because he is not a natural born citizen, both his parents are cuban immigrants.

He's got to be in the big 3: Portman, Christie and Rubio. Romney needs an electrifying choice - which I think knocks off Portman. It's got to be between Christie and Rubio. And Rubio gives him the whole package. He has charisma and star quality. I think Rubio has to be the favorite. And with the Latino vote being so crucial and Obama just granting amnesty to younger illegals, Rubio's stock just went up. You had to believe Rubio was being vetted.
