Ann Coulter Says Rubio Would Be a Big Mistake for VP

Ann Coulter, of “Three Cheers for Romneycare” fame, told ABC today that Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) would be a mistake for VP because he untested and too much like Governor Rick Perry.

Ann Couter was sitting on the ABC panel this week with commie Van Jones.


Nice Ann. Beat up on Senator Marco by comparing him to Texas Governor Perry – the most successful jobs governor in the US.

ABC reported:

While pundits, politicians and prognosticators have tapped Florida Sen. Marco Rubio as one of the most likely GOP vice presidential picks, conservative commentator Ann Coulter warned today that such a choice would be a “mistake.”

“I think that would be a mistake because the same people who loved Rubio loved [former presidential candidate and Texas Gov.]Rick Perry,” Coulter told me Sunday during the “This Week” roundtable discussion.

“I want someone who’s been a bit more tested.” As the rising star of the Tea Party and a Hispanic from the delegate-rich state of Florida, Rubio would fix Romney’s two biggest problems: enthusiasm among the Republican base and lackluster support from Hispanics, argued conservative commentator George Will.

But Coulter, who is a firm Mitt Romney supporter, said the GOP frontrunner needs a running mate who is tried and tested, which, as a first-term Senator, Rubio is not.

Coulter suggested Romney pick someone like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie or Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl, R-Ariz. “He’s been tested, he’s steady, he’s not frightening,” Coulter said of Kyl. “He could certainly step into the job.”
