Methinks thou doth protest too much, Mr. Axelrod. (Oh geez, I may have spelled "methinks" wrong) :bricks: Axelrod: Rubio as VP would Senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod said Sunday that handing the vice presidential nomination to Cuban-American Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) would be an â€śinsult to Hispanics.â€ť The Washington Times reports: â€śI think it would be an insult to the Hispanic community to choose Senator Rubio if the thinks that that is somehowâ€”if Governor Romney thinks thatâ€™s sort of a get-out-of-jail-free card for all of the things and the positions that heâ€™s taken,â€ť Mr. Axelrod said. Hispanics broke for Obama 67 to 31 percent in 2008. In 2012, Obama may be more vulnerable. His attempt to force Catholic institutions to pay for birth control could alienate the Latino populationâ€™s devout following.
