Rumor of the day: First Romney fundraiser with VP “may” be in Florida on Sunday

posted at 7:50 pm on August 7, 2012 by Allahpundit

Yes, yes, I know — pure speculation, as thin as tissue paper. Get used to it. No less than Karl Rove thinks the pick could come as soon as Friday, so the full force of VP frenzy will soon be upon us. Don’t be surprised if we’re a little more lax in relaying rumors than we usually are in the meantime.

The source:

Ana Navarro was Hispanic co-chair of McCain’s 2008 campaign and Huntsman’s campaign this year. She knows people — and one person she’s known for a long time is Marco Rubio. BuzzFeed described her as a “top ally” of his when she hinted back in June that Romney advisor Stuart Stevens, a former Crist advisor, might have leaked the news in May that Rubio wasn’t yet being vetted for VP. If she’s telling the truth here then there’s every reason to suspect that Rubio’s the pick: She knows him and his circle well so she’s well positioned for an inside scoop and, needless to say, a big rollout fundraiser in Rubio’s home state shortly after the announcement makes perfect sense.

Or, maybe she knows nothing and is blowing smoke in order to build buzz for her preferred choice. She’s obviously no great fan of Stevens; this would be a way to get back at him for the perceived slight in May. As I say, my friends: As thin as tissue paper. By way of a possible preview of the campaign trail, via Bryan Preston, here’s Rubio showing off his attack-dog skills earlier today. Excellent stuff, especially in light of The One’s sleazy smear this morning.

“So it’s my great pleasure to announce that President Obooba’s candidate for vice president will be my wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton!”

I hope not. I reeallly love Rubio, but I think it would be a mistake on his part to run as VP at this point in his career.

I’ve gotten my first choice the last two times (Palin and Cheney). My first choice this time is Rubio.

Your mileage may vary.

Nessuno on August 7, 2012 at 7:56 PM

I’m not going to believe anything until I see a siren on Matt Drudge’s site.

I hope it isn’t true because I don’t think Rubio is the right pick.

Happy Nomad on August 7, 2012 at 7:56 PM

i hope it’s Allen West!!

None of this matters. PPP says Barackabama has Colorado for sure and most likely has North Carolina again!

I don’t like the idea of making a VP out of a Senator from a swing state. You are potentially sacrificing control of the Senate and the 51st vote against Obamacare.

terryannonline on August 7, 2012 at 8:03 PM

Very effective remarks by Rubio. I’ll concede that he would be the most influential VP pick in terms of getting more votes, but he’s also one of the least experienced choices available to Romney. It’s a tough one, but I guess if you wanna look at the glass being half full, it also shows that the GOP has a helluva good farm system.

Doughboy on August 7, 2012 at 8:04 PM

She worked for McShamnesty AND JuanSanchezVillaLobos Huntsman. Therefore, not trustworthy.

Every state is different, but usually the governor gets to choose a replacement, so it should stay in the red column.

El_Terrible on August 7, 2012 at 8:04 PM

Last week, they said the VP was Condi Rice. This week, they said the VP was Dave Petraeus. Now somebody speculates about Marco Rubio.

Rubio would be a great pick–he’s an excellent speaker, could win Hispanic votes, would certainly help in Florida, seems to share Romney’s governing philosophy, but he is young, without much experience, and maybe he should serve a full Senate term before running for higher office.

Can all the speculators just give it a rest and let Romney make up his mind?

Steve Z on August 7, 2012 at 8:04 PM

VP WEST 2012!

Pork-Chop on August 7, 2012 at 8:04 PM

Jayrae on August 7, 2012 at 8:07 PM

Hope it’s true. He is up for the task. He is also the future of the permanent Republican majority. Obama and the Dems do not have an answer to Romney-Rubio. Biden will have an undisclosed illness after Rubio’s announcement, which will “force” Obama to look for a replacement. Hey, Harry the Hack Reid, Axelrod on line 1.

I don’t like the idea of making a VP out of a Senator from a swing state. You are potentially sacrificing control of the Senate and the 51st vote against Obamacare.

Mark1971 on August 7, 2012 at 7:59 PM

In Florida, the Governor does name a replacement for a retiring Senator, as Gov. Crist named George LeMieux to replace retiring Senator Mel Martinez. Gov. Scott would certainly name a Republican to replace Rubio if he became VP, but Rubio’s replacement would have to run for re-election in two years, whereas Rubio would serve until 2016 if he stayed in the Senate.

From the point of view of control of the Senate, this would be a win-win proposition. If Romney/Rubio wins, Rubio casts the deciding vote in the Senate as VP. If Romney/Rubio loses, Rubio can serve in the Senate for another four years, just as John McCain did after losing the Presidency.

West or Rubio would both have the ability to do what VP’s do—have a pulpit to slam Obama and his pathetic socialist agenda. Either would/could stand up to the media and make them look like the idiots they are, cheerleading, instead of practicing journalism.

I`m for Jindal. From what I`ve read, he has way more experience (esp. executive) than Rubio. JIndal would mash Biden in the debate, not that VP debates matter much. Plus he can contrast his leadership during the BP oil spill to that of the Obama admin.

Keep Rubio in the senate until the FL governers seat is up for grabs, have him win it then go for President later on.

ThePrez on August 7, 2012 at 8:12 PM

I hope not. No executive experience, and he certainly isn’t ready to be Veep. Of more pertinence for me is that I don’t want him to be set up as “next in line”, because Rubio seems to be headed in the direction of McCain.

Zaggs on August 7, 2012 at 8:17 PM

A Glick in time saves nine.

One of my pet peeves with the US military, that I raise every time I find myself speaking to US military officers, is that they bowed to Arab pressure and wiped Israel off the Middle East map. This they did a number of years ago, when they decided that Israel would be attached to the US military’s European Command while every single Arab state is located in Central Command.

This articifial removal of Israel from the purview of Central Command has bred generations of US military commanders who due to the inherent distortion of their organization, almost necessarily emerge as hostile to Israel after they serve for any significant length of time in Central Command.

In my mind, one of Israel’s top priorities should be to demand that the US military place Israel back in Central Command to end this vile, unfair situation that works to the detriment of the strategic coherence of the US military and of course to the detriment of Israel.

With this introduction, I commend to everyone, Andy McCarthy’s authoritative and important analysis of Gen. David Petreaus’s hostility towards Israel. I have basically ignored the controversy regarding his remarks and particularly, Max Boot’s attack on Diana West for calling Petreaus to task for his unfair, incorrect and indeed libellous statements about Israel’s responsibility for Arab violence. And I am sorry for dong so. I received an email from Diana asking me to weigh in on the the issue but I just didn’t have the time or energy to do so. Maybe I was hoping that Petreaus was telling the truth when he tried to weasel out of responsibility for his untoward attack on Israel during his Senate testimony. At any rate, as Andy makes clear, Max was wrong to defend Petreaus and attack West and I am glad he took the time to call Max out for what he did.

terryannonline on August 7, 2012 at 8:22 PM

One of Petraeus’s main mentors was Stephen Walt, an open admirer of Hitler. He and much of the top brass perceive the IDF as “baby killers, and cite The Goldstone Report to prove it. Admiral Mullen, who was raised by a Hollywood talent agent who hated many of his Jewish clients for their supposed cheapness, also holds deeply negative views of Israel blaming Israel for murder of the U.S. Sailors serving on the U.S.S. Liberty, rather than accepting that tragedy as a fog of war. So Obama risks losing his generals if he doesn’t crack down on a country called within their ranks as “Semitism Gone Wild”.

Happy Nomad on August 7, 2012 at 8:24 PM

Bet on this: The VP won’t be announced until a few days before the convention.All these Republican “strategists” are being good soldiers and relaying conflicting information in order to stoke media intrigue about the veepstakes. Within the last twenty-four hours, prominent journalists and pundits with “high-ranking sources” in the Romney campaign have alternatively heard that Christie, Ryan, and Rubio are all under “serious consideration.” And let’s not forget Drudge’s bogus “scoop” on David Petraeus. This reeks of a concerted effort to draw the media’s attention to the veepstakes.

The Olympics don’t conclude until next week, Harry Reid is de-legitimizing Romney’s tax returns as a political issue, and the convention is still three weeks off. Why on earth would Romney announce his VP pick this week?

Ok for those of you comparing Rubio to McCain please explain?

terryannonline on August 7, 2012 at 8:22 PM

Been there, done that … and extensively. But, here is from one link.

Caroline B. Glick (Columnist and former Israeli Defense Forces Captain): “For their efforts to warn about and perhaps cause the administration to abandon its reliance on Muslim Brotherhood front groups to inform it about the nature of the Muslim Brotherhood, Bachmann and her colleagues have been denounced as racists and McCarthyites. These attacks have not been carried out only by administration supporters. Republican Senator John McCain denounced Bachmann from the floor of the Senate. Republican Senator Marco Rubio later piled on attacking her for her attempt to convince the administration to reconsider its policies. Those policies again place the most radical members of the US Muslim community in charge of the US government’s policies toward the Muslim Brotherhood and other jihadist movements.
It is clear that the insidious notion that the Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate and friendly force has taken hold in US policy circles. And it is apparent that US policymaking in the Middle East is increasingly rooted in this false and dangerous assessment.
In spearheading an initiative to investigate and change this state of affairs, Rep. Bachmann and her colleagues should be congratulated, not condemned. And their courageous efforts to ask the relevant questions about the nature of Muslim Brotherhood influence over US policymakers should be joined, not spurned by their colleagues in Washington, by the media and by all concerned citizens in America and throughout the free world.”

Rubio can be VP for some muslim brotherhood country. Or maybe for Mexico.

Cindy Munford on August 7, 2012 at 8:21 PM

Cindy,

I disagree. The candidate for President is absolutely the diva. But the whole reason why this matters (from the time when VP wasn’t the consolation prize) is the idea that the VP can solidify the ticket. As absurd as it is, Biden’s self-identified expertise in foreign affairs was why he got the job. Cheney’s long history in DC bolstered GWB’s political experience as a governor. Same holds true for Clinton/Gore. And Ronald Reagan’s choice of GHWB.

Happy Nomad on August 7, 2012 at 8:34 PM

I don’t know too many people standing with Bachmann except you.

Have you read Bachmann’s statement and any of the letters written by her and those other members of Congress?

If you don’t like hyperbole thrown at you maybe you should calm down your rhetoric.

If I am to defend truth, justice and the American way, I will not do it stingily.

You either stand with Michele Bachman or you stand with the Muslim Brotherhood, like McCain and Rubio do.

You know, you don’t have to sleep with both guys on the ticket, ri-i-ight?

I am betting that the VP will be one of the following:
Ryan (he could run circles around Biden. And the Ryan plan is better than the obama-biden no plan)
Rubio (definitely beat biden in a debate and would pull some of hispanic vote and guaranttee FL in Romney’s column)
Gov. Susana Martinez (my dark horse candidate)

Thank you. I didn’t know that about CentCom. But why did you make me find the link myself? :)

Cat’s are tricky, you know. I did give a hint – “A Glick in time”. I wanted to test to see who here was smart enough to find it from that. You passed as I thought you would.

Michele Bachmann has as much evidence that Huma is connected the Muslim brotherhood as Harry Reid has that Romney didn’t pay his taxes for 10 years. full of crap.
