Rubio and Romney didn't talk about VP brouhaha

Yesterday, Mitt Romney forecfully assured folks that Marco Rubio was, in fact, being vetted for VP, despite reports that he wasn't.

But according to Rubio, that didn't lead to any sort of conversation between the two. As of 10:27 PM last night, Marco said the two hadn't talked about it.

As for the specifics of the controversy and vetting, Rubio stayed mum.

Here he is on Greta Van Susteren's show last night.

Here's the transcript, where Rubio conceded that, yes, yesterday had been "an interesting day."

RUBIO: It's been an interesting day, yes. You know, look, I don't want to talk about the process. I haven't up to this point. It's Governor Romney's process and I want to be respectful of that.

I think all of us should be -- all of us involved in politics should be respectful of this process because he has an important choice to make. He's going to make a great choice. I'm confident of that. And -- but I think out of respect for what he's going through and the process they're running through, I've just made a policy of not talking about it.

VAN SUSTEREN: Would you concede it's been a little bit of a crazy day for you on this topic?

RUBIO: Yes, well, you know, obviously, for the guys that work for me. I mean, we've been busy voting on the Senate floor and out there talking about our book. So obviously, you hear it from time to time. But look, it's just all part of the process. It's been, you know, quite an interesting ride around here the last few months, so...

VAN SUSTEREN: Have you actually talked to the governor today?

RUBIO: I have not.
