Romney and Obama Both Seek Support Of Latinos
Romney and Obama are both seeking to appeal to Latino voters, but they are going about it using different methods. Romney would probably gain much more credibility with Marco Rubio as his running mate, while Obama's latest executive power grab to grant certain illegals amnesty is his method. Of all the running mates Romney could choose, Rubio would probably give him the most "political traction". He would certainly be a better choice than Mitch Daniels or Paul Ryan. While Rand Paul would maybe give him a little bit of credibility among the libertarian voters, it would likely backfire as most libetarians do not agree with the policies of Romney at all.
Obama's policy can later be overturned, so it is clearly just a political tactic. It is disappointing to see such blatant political strategies that often make the candidates look less than consistent or genuine. That is why I always supported Ron Paul, and despite the recent departure politically of his son, the father for the most part remains genuine.
