Rand or Rubio?
« on: February 19, 2013, 08:02:46 AM »
I ask because it seems pretty obvious the RINO leadership know they are at the end of the rope and the Base/Tea party is about to let them drop to their death.
Now that the GOP is headlining Rubio in an effort to appease the base, if the race for POTUS were to come down to a tie between the two, which candidate would you back?

Don't get me wrong, I like Rubio, but I don't trust the RINO.

It's early yet.   I an old farm boy, I am not ready to put all my eggs in one basket.  We have 3.5 years yet.  I don't see all the horses in the race yet.  In a year of two we will know who the media wants for the race.

If I had to choose between the two, right now, Rand. However, people seem to change the more the spotlight is shed on them, so we'll see how this plays out.

Rand Paul. All other PUBS need not apply, else I will vote Constitution Party.

Possibly Amash as a PUB.

That's the thing, the left will once again try and pick our candidates from a long list of RINO entries.
I just wanted to let the establishment media and GOP know we are paying very close attention this time around and put them on notice were done, this is their last shot to put forth a real Conservative.

We can expect both groups to trash both these candidates in the waning months of the election, it's what they've always done, we just don't have to tolerate it any longer.

Perhaps the problem then is the way the caucus is manipulated?

I'm for Rubio, I think he would take a harder and more active stance in stopping Latin American communism which is important to me. Then again I'm not American and cant vote for either.

I have my own country election to think about, the most right wing party is leading the polls and was the 2nd biggest party las election :thumbup:

I love Rubio and all, but I need to get more up to speed on where he is on immigration.  Rand right now is my top choice.

Paul will need one hell of a campaign machine to take on the GOP.

Absolutely!!! I believe it's why the GOP is floating Rubio so soon, Rand scares the Hell out of them, but I look for the GOP to throw Rubio under the bus come election time, that is, once they've vanquished Rand.

At this point i'm saying neither.  There will be more folks throw their hats in then a better choice will be able to be made.  I hope the final choice doesn't come down between Rubio or Rand Paul.

I think Solar may have hit on it. Rand Paul cannot be controlled so the establishment will try to get rid of him ASAP. I also agree that Rubio has "TEA Party" on his forehead and this alarms the establishment. The last two elections should tell them that moderates cannot win. Some would argue that George W. Bush was also a moderate, but he ran as a conservative. It didn't hurt that he was from TX which made it easier to pose as a conservative.

Rand for POTUS. Rubio as his running mate.

Rand for two terms followed by Rubio for two terms.

That's my thinking at this time......

....and yes, a lot of water will go under the bridge between now and 2016.

Rubio as a slight edge over Rand Paul, Actually I would pick either one
or both as either President or Vice Pres.
