2016 Clinton and Bush redux? Jeb Bush/Marco Rubio, Hillary Clinton/Joaquin Castro or Joe Biden/Castro?Wednesday, January 16th, 2013
Have you ever wondered why Senator Marco Rubio (out of the blue) is now wanting to be a type of immigration savior all of a sudden? The Republican Party got spanked by women and Mexican-American voters when they overwhelmingly lost during the November 6, 2012, elections.
Keep in mind that Senator Marco Rubio stated his support for Arizona’s SB 1070 law and now wants to be some sort of immigration champion after he kicked the Mexicans when they were down and out before Nov. 6th. Rubio supported SB 1070 and also did not support the DREAM Act. The undocumented sure could have used his help in December 2010 when the DREAM Act was under a vote, but Rubio repeatedly stated he did not support the DREAM.
What could this mean?
In my opinion, it could mean that Jeb Bush wants to run for President of the United States in 2016 and is looking to secure Florida. You see …. Obama won Florida in 2012, too.
There is one problem though: The Republican National Committee has not changed it’s anti-immigration stance with regard to their platform and how it supports Arizona-like laws regarding immigrants. The RNC should have reversed it’s platform yesterday and there is going to be an ugly division within the GOP soon.
Can Rubio be trusted on his immigration views after he supported SB 1070?
Will there be talks of Jeb Bush / Marco Rubio ticket in 2016?
What about a Hillary Clinton and Joaquin Castro ticket in 2016?
President of SOMOS INDEPENDENTS, Shirl Mora James (Civil Rights and Immigration lawyer) is already pulling for a Clinton / Castro ticket.
Will Hillary Clinton run knowing full well that women and Mexican-Americans and Latinos overwhelmingly supported Obama in 2012?
Joe Biden will more than likely run, but he does not really seem to bring anything fresh or new to the table.
Heaven forbid another Clinton and Bush redux — but it is a possibility.
