There are a lot of people, both Democrat and Republican, that would make a better president than Romney! Unfortunately, you have not down a thorough investigation of his background. Even ignoring some of his extremist idealisms, he has several questionable ethical problems, including his “Floridians for Conservative Leadership" fundraising that paid relatives in the 6 digits for "Administrative services" while channeling only about $4000 into campaigns that were the reason given for it. Then their is his personnel finances - if he cannot handle them well, how can he run government financing? Then their are the lies he told about his parents, claiming they were communist refugees when the facts showed they left Cuba several years before Castro's victory. Then there are his lies on religion. His religious "evolution" too closely follows the needs for a political career to be coincidental. Of course, anyone that considers Romney, with his changing sides on issues based on the political winds, questionable financial dealings to avoid paying his fair share of the taxes and inability to make any decisions before consulting his panel of advisers, probably will also ignore the questionable past of Marco Rubio as well. His being vetted for VP just shows what slim choices are available among Republicans.

Jan - Please provide some examples of Rubio's "extremist idealisms." I've been hearing the leading Democrats (Reid, Pelosi, Wasserman-Schultz) and each of them uses the word "extreme" or some variation thereof to describe their opponent or someone on the other side of the aisle. I'd just like to know what is considered extreme.

FordGalaxy - Jan has to wait for her talking points to respond. To her, Republican means extreme - or at least that's what she's been told to say. It's a shame that we have have to constantly attack people with smears instead of dealing with the serious, pressing issues that are facing this country. I'm willing to listen if someone can put forward ideas that will make a positive difference.

FordGalaxy, I was going to respond even though I thought your main interest was to argue that the tea party extremism that he represents is desirable. Now that kspapi has indicated that he/she is waiting to put forth a barrage of insults, I find myself tiring of such childish behavior even though I know you would respond more intelligently. ksoapi, I assume from your comment that you believe people should check comments frequently, like they have no life outside of posting comments. I am afraid that I do not fall into that category. You have even mislabeled my gender so I know you do not put much thought before responding. Do some research next time and see if you can write something more intelligent.

Translation there are none to list at this time, but the words being typed together make GREAT Google search results.

As to the TEA party being EXTREME, I've yet to read about any voter registration issues such as those that occurred in IL and Indiana for example where the Tea-Partys' have been found at the center of the controversy, like some other groups.

Perhaps one EXTREME position is the TOTAL lack of notoriety in this regard?
