Say what you will but the Republican primary is over. Newt will not be an alternative to Romney. He sealed his fate with his stupid "vulture capitalism" crap. I think Santorum ran a surprising campaign but his problem was that he had a negative feel to his speeches and he did get caught up in the contraception debate.
Romney has run a conservative campaign and according to some exit polls he was getting on average 30 to 35% of the conservative vote in most of the primary debates. Without those conservatives like me supporting him he could not have won. There is no "republican establishment" conspiracy to silence "true conservatives". If there was we would have had a slew of other people running.
Now is the time to put on our big kid pants and defeat Obama. That means supporting Romney and encourage him to bring on the most dynamic member of either chamber and that is Senator Rubio.

West or Rubio are still to green. let them solidify their credentials then if they chose to run or accept a Spot on a ticket consider supporting them. They may not be what you think you want,just sayin'.

I like Paul Ryan for a VP pick.
I like Allen West for Sec of Defense.
I like John Bolten for Sec of State.

I disagree about Rubio being green. He was the speaker of the Florida state assembly in a very important state. He is definitely more qualified than a mayor turned governor to run as veep and he has a very good grasp of the economic situation that we face.

I still say that there should be a full-court press to get Condi Rice to join the ticket as VP. She is brilliant (would eat Biden's lunch in VP debates), experienced, and would be disarming to the race/gender driven narrative of the current administration and his surrogates in the MSM. She would be a damned competent and formidable VP.

Kay
04-10-2012, 10:31 PM
Yea I'd love to see Rice back in too.
But I think she had enough of all that DC fun already.
I don't see her ever getting back in at that level.

Florida is no more important a state than 49 others. Did you think before you typed your post,you said a governor wasn't qualified to be VP but a state assemblyman was . hell if you want to put importance on states I'd argue that Alaska is more important than Florida both Strategically & economically.

That aside Rubio has had an impressive come out politically but still an unknown. Give him time if he is what folks hope he is he will be even better in 4 or 8yrs. one step away from the presidency not the place to have some unknown untested person.

Looks like I won't be voting at all this November. As far as what little advice I have for Romney for his VP pick, he needs to put someone like Mike Huckabee or Rick Santorum on the ticket if he really wants conservatives besides myself to show up on Election Day. Marco Rubio, although I like him, might not do the trick. Condi Rice, the "pro-choice evangelical" will easily help Obama sail to a second victory.

You all won't be hearing that much from me in the near future. This election is officially over.

Ahh, poor baby. You just couldnt get anyone to rally to the side of Obama on this site, could you?


Oh look at me!!! I'm a true conservative who won't vote for a conservative because I'm trying to get people to stay home because thats the only way my buddy Obama can get elected. Oh well, back to the welfare office for me. The free internet the library doesn't allow me to watch bestiality anyways. <--- What Mike really means.

Sorry Zeus but Florida is more important because it is a swing state that we must win to get the electoral college.

As for my comment about Palin, if she had actually served a full term as governor, I could see your point. However, she quit two and a half years into her term. Yes the democrats were playing fast and loose but she could have easily stayed with it.

Yes, finaly you'll shut the fuck up and never come back.

I guess we'll see you over at DU and other sites now working to get the Obumbler elected as that is your true desire.

Oh, I've heard that Jerry Brown's looking for an assistant....sounds like the perfect job for you.

He couldn't have made it more plainer if he had it tattood on his forehead that he is a Obama supporter, he said it himself "Romney is a better candidate then obama" but he wont vote for him, so that makes him either a dumbass or a liar. Mike which one are you?

:livid:Idunno about Rubio. Romney will have to pick carefully; this is his last chance to score free points with voters, and there are quite a few good choices out there. Hell, Ron Paul would be an interesting choice, and would add a lot of momentum to the campaign, I think.

Whoever he ends up choosing, it should be interesting.

There is that and then there appears to be a dislike in the Republican party of Social conservatives and Condi Rice is a Full blown social Conservative almost to the point of being a Blue Dog Democrat or in other words she is a Neocon.

I do like her though.

I think John Kasich Gov of Ohio would be a great choice for VP.
