Five Reasons Marco Rubio Isn't Ready to Be President
Florida Senator Marco Rubio said yesterday in New Hampshire that he was ready to be president. Problem is the 43-year-old man who would be the first Hispanic big cheese doesn't have the goods. Here are five reasons why:
5. He opposed the nomination of the nation's top Hispanic jurist pretty much based upon her support for privacy rights -- a Republican issue to be sure. Rubio cited Roe vs. Wade in defending his position -- so it hurts with both groups of potential supporters, And oh yeah, though he opposes abortion, he insists he's "not a chauvinist."
4. He hasn't been around long enough. He said in his speech that a candidate for president probably shouldn't be running for another office. Well, the guy hasn't even finished his first term as Senator. He rose quickly through the Florida House of Representatives to be speaker. And he doesn't know jack about foreign policy. Is this a guy whose finger should be on the button? I mean, he is young as John Kennedy, but doesn't; have the military experience or the Harvard education.
