Conservative radio talk host Rush Limbaugh is jumping on the ‘We love everything about Marco Rubio’ bandwagon. Yesterday during his program Limbaugh predicted Rubio “someday [is] going to be president of the United States.”
The praise didn’t stop there, he went as far as to identify the junior Republican senator from Florida as “conservative purity”. The Rubio praise came while Limbaugh was debating whether political conservatives need to remain faithful to their core values in order to survive politically.
Rubio remains a favorite amongst conservative Republicans as a potential Vice Presidential nominee for the 2012 election. For his part Rubio continuously denies any interest in higher office and says he just wants to remain focused on his new job. Rubio came into office as a Tea Party candidate for the U.S. Senate.
Limbaugh and others admire Rubio’s ability to stick to core conservative values and not pander to moderate Republicans or centrist views.
It remains unknown if Rubio, whose parents were Cuban exiles, meet the presidential requirement of being a natural-born citizen, an issue that has plagued Obama’s presidency.
