Mark Levin Wants Marco Rubio To Throw Hat In Ring


Battling Leadership Void, Talkers Demand Rubio Run

As the nation starves for leadership thanks to Obama's bizarre indifference, conservative talkers are evaluating conservative rising stars to see who might have what it takes to go all the way in 2012.

With our alleged president more concerned with NCAA brackets than global crises erupting seemingly without end, there is no time to spare.

During Tuesday's program, Rush Limbaugh singled out freshman Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) as one of the few Republicans taking on reckless spending and a feckless political establishment in Washington.

Syndicated talker Mark Levin (image above right) took it a step further, pleading with Rubio himself during an on-air interview:

Is Rubio truly in position for such an undertaking? While perhaps a bit young (born 1971), he's exceptionally intelligent and articulate. He's not interested in pandering to the out-of-touch Beltway establishment.

While the senator himself used the interview to rule out a run, he's almost certainly moving to the top of the potential VP selection list for any major candidate.

The bigger question, however: with the world in a state of crisis, isn't it time for Obama to either get to work or step aside?


  • Hopefully this won't happen. While I have complete confidence that Rubio would make an excellent president, he is not a Natural Born Citizen, as required by the US Constitution, Article II, Section I, Clause 5.

    While he was indeed born in Miami, he is a dual US/Cuban citizen due to the fact that his parents were Cuban exiles at the time of his birth. And watch a Democrat "Birther" movement arise if he's nominated, except that "their" movement will have the media on its side, and with far different results. Bottom line: Disaster for the GOP...I'm sticking with another Floridian - Rep. Allen West.

  • Rubio is too new on the scene, we don't really know enough about him. I remember when everyone was going nuts over Scott Brown too.

  • I don't think Rush and Levin would ask him to run if he wasn't eligible.

  • Importance of President being a "natural born citizen". Obama's dad was a British citizen at time of Obama's birth. Jindal's parents were in U.S. on student visas and were not yet naturalized citizens at time of Jindal's birth.

    At this point there can be little doubt that the Framers of our Constitution considered both Blackstone and Vattel, and they choose Vattel over Blackstone. The Founding Fathers placed into Constitutional concept that the loyalty of a Natural Born Citizen is a loyalty can never be claimed by any foreign political power. The only political power that can exclusively claim the loyalty of a natural born citizen is that power that governs of his birth. Vattel by including the parents and place removes all doubt as to where the loyalties of the natural born citizen ought to lie, as Vattel’s definition removes all claims of another foreign power by blood or by soil, and is the only definition that is in accord with Jay’s letter to Washington.
