Marco Rubio Declines Ride on the Titanic as Obama Surges to Double-Digit Lead


    Given polls like this one, I’d say that Marco Rubio is pretty smart to decline a ticket on the Titanic, aka the Romney campaign for president.

    I’m not going to be the vice presidential nominee, but I’m always flattered when people bring it up, I think they mean it as a compliment…

    You think Rubio’s cold feet might have something to do with polls like the brand new one by CNN?

    If the general election were held today instead of in early November, 54% of registered voters say they would back Obama, with 43% supporting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the front-runner in the GOP nomination battle. That’s up from a five-point 51%-46% advantage the president held over Romney in February.

    Oh, and “the president’s approval rating has inched over the 50% mark in CNN surveys for the first time since last May, when the polls were still registering the after effects of the death of Osama bin Laden.” Yep, that Marco Rubio’s no dummy. Now Bob McDonnell on the other hand…term limited, nothing much to do after 2013? Sure, why not, at least the first part of the Titanic cruise was first-class fun, until the ice-cold North Atlantic water started pouring in! Oh well, you can’t have everything, can you? LOL

    UPDATE: The polling numbers from ABC are no better for Willard. Maybe he should focus on the car elevator and the tax shelters in the islands instead of this crazy presidential campaign thang? Heh.
