Nancy Reagan and Marco Rubio

In political circles, Marco Rubio is considered a rising star. Just looking at him, one can't shake the impression that he's offering a preview of the Republican Party's next generation of politicians. If nothing else, He is a Gentlemen and a scholar.  

It all began with smiles Tuesday night at the Reagan Presidential Library. Former first lady Nancy Reagan stumble Tuesday night walking into an event at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. Rubio who was escorting her at the time helped slow her fall as Secret Service and others rushed in to help brace Mrs Reagen from stumbling to the floor. She appeared to be uninjured and took her seat.

While national Republicans suggest Sen. Marco Rubio would be well suited as the GOP vice presidential candidate in the next election, the Florida freshman did his best to dispel the rumors Tuesday night, instead focusing his attention on his state and the American dream.
In a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, his first major address out of Florida or Washington, D.C. since he was elected, Rubio said he has "no interest in serving as vice president."
"What happens in politics is the minute you start thinking there's something else out there for you, it starts affecting everything you do," Rubio said at the event in Simi Valley, California. "The reality of it is I'm not going to be the vice presidential nominee, but I look forward to working with whoever our nominee is."

Rubio, who was elected in 2010 with backing from the tea party movement, said the current role of government "cannot be sustained," adding that a government provided safety net cannot be a way of life in the United States.

"If defining the proper role or government was one of the central issues of the Reagan era, it remains that now," Rubio said. "I know that it's popular in my party to blame the president, the current president but the truth is the only thing this president has done is accelerate policies that were already in place and were doomed to fail."

Republican consultant Doug Heye said today’s political environment means realtively inexperienced politicians like the 40-year-old Rubio cannot be ignored. Heye pointed to other fast-risers like President Obama, Rep. Michele Bachmann and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

“We live in a world where compelling party figures become national figures rather quickly,” other Republicans, though say more seasoning could make Rubio into an even-more-valuable asset down the line for the GOP.

Even they, though, are tempted by the bright, shiny thing in front of them.

“What ultimately is best for the party is for him to do what he thinks he is best qualified to do,” said GOP strategist David Norcross. “I come down narrowly on the side of staying in the Senate for now. If he thinks he knows better, he might well be right.”

But as of right now, there are plenty of people in the GOP who would rather not wait.

GREAT SAVE MARCO, She's important, She's the Mother Of Conservatism. GREAT SAVE!
