Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann … you can all go home now. The Republican “machine” has settled on former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as the 2012 GOP nominee and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio as the vice-presidential candidate, according to popular commentator Glenn Beck.
Beck yesterday told his GBTV audience that while he’s not crazy about the prospect, that’s what it is.
“I hate the Republicans just as much as I hate the Democrats,” he said on yesterday’s program. “I haven’t found anybody I can vote for yet. … It’s going to be Mitt Romney and Rubio. You watch. It will be. That’s the way the machine works.”
The comments came in the middle of a program about the nationwide “Occupy” protests and how they’re being pushed, promoted and programmed by leftists.
Beck recalled how the movement even has been supported by President Obama, whose left-leaning ideas such as the nationalization of healthcare decision-making and “spreading the wealth” have been in evidence.
Beck cited Obama’s comment on the “Occupy” protesters: “I understand the frustrations that are being expressed in those protests in some ways. They’re not that different from some of the protests that we saw coming from the tea party.”
However, when the tea party was gaining momentum, Obama said, “I’ve been a little amused over the last couple of days with people having these rallies about taxes, taxes. You would think they would be saying thank you.”
He made similar comments a few weeks earlier at Glennbeck.com.
“Rick Perry may be surging in the polls of Republican primary voters, but his party insiders aren’t convinced he’ll be the best general election candidate,” Beck said. “More than two-thirds of Republican insiders say Mitt Romney has a better chance that Perry of defeating President Obama.”
Even last summer, according to Politico, Beck was expressing displeasure with the GOP.
He said assumptions that he is a Republican are not true.
“I hate them. I think they are as much of a problem as the other side,” he told Politico “If you speak out in today’s world, you’re either a Republican or Democrat. How about just being real?”
A year ago, however, Beck gently was directing people to Mitt Romney.
“I have to tell you that Mitt Romney could be the only guy that could win, and I don’t know if he could because I think that Americans are going to be, I mean, this country is going to be in deep trouble by 2012, and the next term, if it’s not decided this term, the next term will decide our fate. Then I hope that Americans are ready for an adult and are ready for hard news,” he was quoted saying.
Rubio has stated he is not willing to accept the VP nomination for 2012 because he’s been in the U.S. Senate only a year and believes he has work to finish there.
Many will agree with Beck’s prediction as well as his dislike and unwillingness to support anyone running ‘yet’. But most of us realize that the biggest goal in this upcoming is replacing Barack Obama and saving our country and no matter who gets the GOP nod in the end; they must be supported and voted for. In this election a 3rd party candidate would ensure Obama being re-elected and not voting or write-ins will do the same!!
Then as for Rubio, as much as I like Rubio (and Jindal), Rubio should not be eligible for V.P. or President (and neither is Jindal) because his parents at the time of his birth were not NOT U.S. Citizens. Rubio is not a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN… He is a native born citizen, but the two are different. According to Vittal’s Law of Nations: The Law of Nations (Natural Law Cloth) on which our Constitution is based, no one can be president unless BOTH of their parents are U.S. Citizens. That was reiterated in the McCain Eligibility Resolution that Obama voted on but whose provisions he does not meet. One might question the NATURAL BORN CITIZENSHIP provision just like people are questioning the Electoral College system over the popular vote. Both were put there for very specific reasons to prevent a Manchurian-type of candidate to get into that office and then to keep them from manipulating the system to remain
A U.S. President, from what I have read, must be Natural Born Citizen. Obama is NOT a Natural Born citizen because his father was not a U.S. Citizen. And it is believed by many that because the GOP has had their on eyes on Rubio and Jindal, they have chosen to ignore the Obama situation, but this is a huge mistake because it sets precedent.
Both Rubio and Jindal said in separate interviews this week that the would not accept the V.P. call. Perhaps they have more sense, knowledge and belief in the law than the leaders of both parties and the beltway politicians.

Also: The results of a formal law-enforcement investigation into whether Barack Obama is eligible to be president of the United States could come as a “shock,” according to Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Tuesday night, speaking to a tea-party group in Arizona, Arpaio said, “I can’t tell you everything, but there could be a shock there somewhere that my guys came up with. I can’t talk too much about it. It’s in the process.” Read the full story now HERE on WND.com.
Depending what is uncovered here in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation, this could change the focus of the GOP, bringing more focus to the actual law. Or it could just be swept under the carpet with all the other incriminating facts and information. See: Federal Judge Rules in Obama SSN Case
