Rush Limbaugh predicts: Marco Rubio will be president

Even though he’s not running for the presidency and may not even be eligible for it, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida will someday hold the highest office in the land, according to talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh.

The top-rated political analyst made the prediction this afternoon while making a point about sticking to candidates with conservative purity instead of promoting moderate Republicans.

“You want conservative purity,” said Limbaugh, “I’ll give it to you: Marco Rubio, who is someday going to be president of the United States.”

He made the statement as part of an in-depth discussion on whether conservatives should remain faithful to their values, or become more moderate.

He cited Rubio, an unabashed conservative, who defeated former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, often described as a moderate, in the race for U.S. Senate.

Though Rubio is not a candidate for president, he has often been mentioned as a prime choice to be a vice-presidential running mate for whomever wins the GOP nomination.

But as WND has reported, Rubio’s eligibility remains in question, as the Constitution specifies a president must be a “natural-born citizen,” a requirement that has plagued President Obama since his ascension.

Although Rubio was born in Miami, Fla., on May 28, 1971, his Cuban-born parents were not U.S. citizens until they became naturalized Americans on Nov. 5, 1975. There are many who believe that a natural-born citizen means being the child of parents who are both U.S. citizens.

When asked specifically if Rubio considered himself to be a natural-born citizen, the senator’s spokesman Alex Burgos told WND, “Yes.”

Besides Rubio, Limbaugh today also pointed to other recent conservative success compared to moderate Republicans.

“How about Rand Paul vs. the Republican moderate (Trey Grayson) there in Kentucky?” Limbaugh asked. “Rand Paul. That’s a little conservative purity there and it won.”

    Does Mr. Limbaugh need a copy of the Constitution????? The President and the Vice President must be “Natural Born”. Read Alexander Hamilton on the subject. Does Mr. Limbaugh need to read Law of Nations, that our Founders used when defining the term “Natural born”.
    This is very disturbing. Our problems in America come from our disregard of the Constitution and especially at the Federal Level. We don’t get to choose what parts of the Constitution we like and disregard those parts that inconvenience our personal choices.
    Senator Rubio is not Constitutionally qualified for the either office, both parents would have needed to be Citizens of America at the time of his birth.
    “Native born” is being born in this Country, but “Natural Born” is one whose parents are Citizens.

    For God & Country
