I was so impressed with him, more so than in other interviews. I just wonder if he isn't too young and too green, but regardless, my money is on him to lead our country someday.

At this stage of his life, he's far more experienced than obama was running for the presidency.

Then again, so was Sarah Palin which didn't matter to the left.

I am impressed with the story he has to tell, his background, what his friends say about him. Too bad the interview had to be cut shout because of the verdict about to be announced.

I watched about 7 minutes of the show, Hannity's brown nosing made me ill so I changed the channel.

His outright support for amnesty and his support of the "Arab Spring" make him suspect to me.

He wants unlimited immigration for those of hispanic nations so I don't think he's very good for this country. Americans need jobs and this massive an non-stop surge of people coming over the border is not helping the American people in any way.

Immigration Fail, plus his support of regressive tax shifts.

He bothers me on some level. I do not agree with him on the illegal immigration issue. I also thought the Hannity thing was way overdone. I am wondering if Fox News thinks Rubio is the nominee at times? I just don't get the Rubio lovefest. I am sure he is a fine person and I do respect his story and amibition, but I don't understand the double standard by some...like in the Tea Party, who give him a pass for things but are ready to crucify others for far less in the party.

I don't get the Rubio lovefest either but the way I see it, once he helps to get Romney elected he's got nothing to help Romney govern. And come on, an autobiography at his age? It's like Obama writing his before he became President. The most important job Obama's had in his life isn't even in his autobiography. I feel like Rubio is being pushed on us...and he talks way too fast. He may have a future but not now.

I really don't see Romney picking another governor, either. He's got that experience covered. His pick should add something to the ticket AFTER Election Day. Romney needs someone with foreign policy experience, in my opinion. It's the experience he lacks.

That doesn't mean I know who it should be.

My other choice for VP would be someone with energy expertise as long as he picks a really good Secretary of State.

I guess we are seeing or hearing something different. I am thinking he wants a version of the dream act and whether we like it or not, something does have to be done. We need to find a way to keep those who really want to work, get an education, and desire to become citizens and send the rest back to their countries. I never thought I would feel this way, but I have changed in the past few years. Can you tell me where he said or indicated he would not stop all those from crossing the borders illegally?
