Rubio Angling for VP Slot?
For someone who claims he is not interested in being a vice president candidate, Marco Rubio seems to be doing all the things someone who wants to be the nominee would be doing … from campaigning with front-runner Mitt Romney to giving speeches on foreign policy. But then New Jersey governor “Krispy Cream” Christie (to quote Mark Levin) also seems to be doing everything possible to keep his name in front of the public.
Rubio is scheduled to give a major speech on foreign policy at an event sponsored by the liberal Brookings Institution. Based on Rubio’s foreign policy votes so far, he appears to be in the Lieberman-McCain-Graham ranks.
Marco Rubio insists he’s not angling to be Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s running mate, but his schedule this week might indicate otherwise.
After stumping with Romney on Monday, the Florida senator will now “deliver a major speech on the future of U.S. foreign policy at an event hosted by The Brookings Institution” on Wednesday, according to a news release from his office.
“Rubio’s remarks will focus on whether U.S. global leadership is sustainable and even necessary in the 21st century,” the release said.
The announcement of the foreign policy speech comes after Rubio spent Monday campaigning with Romney at a town hall in Aston, Pennsylvania. (FREUDIAN SLIP? Rubio refers to himself as ‘vice president’)
