Newslinks for Thursday March 29: Rubio and Bush Snr both endorse the "inevitable" Romney

Posted on 03/29/2012

Marco Rubio Endorses Mitt Romney - WSJ


“I have zero doubt in my mind of two things: No. 1, that Mitt Romney will govern as a conservative, and No. 2, that he will be head and shoulders better than the guy who’s in the White House now” - Rubio quoted by the Washington Post

...AND George H.W. Bush will officially endorse Romney

"Both the former first lady, Barbara Bush, and one of the president’s sons, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, have already thrown their support behind Mr. Romney. The elder Mr. Bush’s endorsement is sure to offer a boost to Mr. Romney’s argument that he is the inevitable Republican nominee. His campaign has dwarfed rival Rick Santorum‘s in the delegate fight and the latest polls show Mr. Romney well positioned as the race moves to Wisconsin." - WSJ | Fox

"The mess that is ObamaCare is not going away. The president's handling of it will deeply affect his re-election chances" - Karl Rove in the Wall Street Journal

"Mitt Romney’s job in a post-Obamacare world is to show voters what his alternative would be. In a recent op-ed in USA Today, he begins to set this out: tax benefits for individuals purchasing insurance outside their workplace; more competition and consumer choice for insurance plans; medical-malpractice reform; interstate insurance options; and state-determined insurance protection for those with preexisting illnesses. All this is a good start. Rather than a government-run health-care reform, Romney is pushing a market-run reform, which has long been a Republican idea." - Larry Kudlow for NRO

The conservative Supreme Court?

Pete Wehner on Commentary: "Listening to the oral arguments on the Supreme Court during the last three days is a reminder of why it is, in many respects, the intellectual crown jewel for conservatives, and why it’s vital that those appointed to the high court aren’t simply reliable votes but are capable of making compelling arguments."

American Spectator: "I usually stick to commenting on events abroad, but I was shocked to see Rep.

He was dismissed from the floor, but not before donning his sunglasses."

  • McCain disagrees with Boehner’s suggestion that it’s inappropriate to criticize President Barack Obama when he’s traveling overseas - Politico
  • If Romney wants to a) bash the Russians b) bash Obama and c) talk tough about counter-terrorism, he should learn up on this issue - Michael Crowley for TIME
  • "Two decades after the end of the cold war, Mitt Romney still considers Russia to be America’s “No. 1 geopolitical foe.” His comments display either a shocking lack of knowledge about international affairs or just craven politics. Either way, they are reckless and unworthy of a major presidential contender." - New York Times editorial
