  1. Advantages yes, but not even Obama can devote all his time and energy towards campaigning.
  2. Now that primaries are being added, is anything being done to address the fact that Obama will have a 1 year head start campaigning against the GOP candidates? This was a problem in 2008 in scenarios with an incumbent. In another thread I suggested a cap on what he can do before a certain date.
  3. You look like the guy who shot John Lennon.
  4. http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2012/03/29/bts-acosta-marco-rubio-vp.cnn I don't know how much this means, but he would be making a mistake if he's serious.
  5. I'm pretty sure he was referring to the affluent left wing progressives who like to think they can tell people how to live their lives. The democratic establishment if you will.
  6. Sorry I didn't see the last sentence for some reason. Yeah theres too much baggage. Its unfortunate because Jeb is a lot smarter than his brother, but his brother essentially disqualified him from ever seeking national office. Also, if he were to be Romney's VEEP there would be the perception among Republicans (who are more sympathetic to the Bush family) that the ticket was in the wrong order. Romney needs to pick someone who won't overshadow him. Also Jeb himself said he wanted Rubio to be the running mate.
  7. Fantastic idea, though it seems like it would be a bit of work.
  8. When Pat Robertson, Jesse Jackson, Ron Paul and Lenora Fulani are the choices for President, no one wins.
  9. Well, that does prove that Rubio is at least slightly a better choice, but the problem with that data is the question asks if they would be "more willing" to vote Republican, not a guarantee that they'll switch, just they that'll give it more consideration. So your 25-33% number is likely a lot smaller. I never denied a bump would occur, just that it would be a small one. Especially when Martinez is under the national spotlight. She's still pro-life, and she still has a strong stance on illegals. I would venture that most people in the country don't know much about her. The more people who know her the less who will vote for her, the opposite it true with Rubio. He almost has an Obama-esque charisma about him.
  10. I'd like to see that data first of all. All you've linked is a head to head match up Obama vs Romney among Latinos. Secondly, Obama got a 7% boost in African American votes from 2004. You can't tell me that that entire 7% can be attributed to race alone. Some of them? Yes. But Obama was able to inspire many different racial and social groups for a number of different reasons. The boost swing of black votes to Obama because of race is negligible at best.
  11. Can you see Susana Martinez taking over the Presidency if something happened to Mitt Romney? If you want a balance between someone who can help the ticket and someone who could be an adequate president go with someone else because Martinez does neither.
