But guys, what about RON PAUL?
 
2012-03-07 04:23:52 PM  
The only way Republican can win this general election is to have Sarah Palin on the ticket. I hope they don't realize this yet, or the Democrats will be in big trouble.
 
2012-03-07 04:24:02 PM  

Britney Spear's Speculum: Fabric_Man: If Romney wants even a sliver of a remote chance of winning, he'll need a proven soc-con on his ticket. Santorum is an obvious choice, or maybe Jan Brewer.

He'll pick Marco Rubio.
1) First hispanic VP. He'll do this to to corner the hispanic vote.
2) Florida is the largest swing state.


How can he do that and maintain his anti-immigration stance? I agree it would be a brilliant choice but "brilliant" doesnt seem to be in their playbook this year.

Nah she won't do it. Having her private life examined anew will not help her. Why do you think she resigned as gov.?

Let's hope. Obama got more votes than Romney in Ohio last night and it was a Republican primary

[m.static.newsvine.com image 596x302]


Well no duh Obama got more votes, Democrats only had on option in their primary, the GOP had four.

Lost Thought 00: The question is not whether or not Romney will be the nominee, it is whether or not he will be forced to take on Santorum or Gingrich as VP.


Its gonna be Rubio or McDonnell.

And I wouldn't say Obama is a shoe-in for reelection, but I'd give him probably a 55% chance.

You see how much damage the Super-PACs are doing to the primary candidates? Most of the Romney dirt is out there now, and just wait until Rove unleashes his Super-PAC in the fall.

You may not like the man, but Rove knows his shiat.
 
2012-03-07 04:38:17 PM  
I would say it will be Obama vrs Romney. Romney is the most moderate republican against Obama and I could accept him as president.

But the real question is about congress and how to break the deadlock.

From the comments:
Watch Hannity tonight, TheTruth, for the whole tape. Sean promised it then.

Not so sure I trust Fox to release anything with out a left slant. They have really changed.

I agree, Fox has moved to the left. Obviously Soros has gotten to Murdock and scared him off. Now they are pandering to the left audience. Just look, Fox fires Glenn Beck, then hires George Soros' mouth piece Sally Cohn. I can barely listen to Fox anymore, it sickens me that they are becoming MSNBC lite.

Fox has been corrupted. They got Rupert Murdock in such fear that he will do anything to keep out of jail. Murdock was told to get rid of Glenn Beck and get rid of Judge Napolitano. Fox is now another puppet of the NWO.

Not sure what dirt Rove can uncover, the list of whats already been used includes:

Obama is Black (not one of us)
Obama is Kenyan (not eligible)
Obama is a Communist
Obama is a Socialist
Obama is a Muslim
Obama ruining the country economically
Obama is soft on terror

Each has been tested by Foxnews to varying success and his approval numbers continue to rise. So unless that photo of Obama with a live boy or a dead girl surfaces I don't see anything changing. You'll know when Rove starts taking on specific senate or house races that the GOP has conceded the election.

babygoat: MSFT: Lost Thought 00: The question is not whether or not Romney will be the nominee, it is whether or not he will be forced to take on Santorum or Gingrich as VP.

My money is he'll pick someone outside of the primary contest... Christi or someone else who just wants to get their name out there in the debates to set the stage for 2016.

No way, Christi has no nationwide appeal.


I disagree. Christie has a wide support base within the party and I'd go as far as to say he has global appeal. He's the most well-rounded candidate for the position. His words carry a lot of weigh with the party establishment and he has the gravitas to pull the more conservative Republicans into orbit.

I can't see this happening. Rubio is a freshman senator. I know Obama was a freshman senator as well, but Obama is an outlier, he was practically drafted into running for president.

And besides, there's no way the conservative base would vote for a Mormon/Hispanic ticket.

Rubio will probably be Jeb Bush VP in 2016 or 2020. I predict 2020, 2016 still won't be enough time for the Bush name to heal and become less toxic. And besides, if Romney wins the nomination and loses the general, 2016 will go even further right. Then in 2016 when they put up their own Teabagger as a presidential candidate, and loses, the Republicans will look for an establishment figure, and Jeb Bush would probably be the favored choice. He's smart, has the Bush name (which is still strong in the Republican party), has the Bush political machine, has a hispanic wife, and appeals to hispanics.

Finally something sensible out of the GOP primaries. I prefer Gary Johnson but since the GOP won't liste to reason Romney is the least insane of all the rest.

And Obama will win without even having to try.

I consider myself conservative and I'm probably going to vote for Obama.

Either that or find a 3rd-party candidate who doesn't have a chance in hell just to try to express how pissed off I am at the 2 major parties.

Christie is a rock star to Republicans. Just the guy Romney needs to turn out a much less than enthusiastic base on election day. You can book it; it's going to be Christie.

Fabric_Man: You think it's gonna be a Romney-Santorum ticket, or is he going to tap someone else?




Santorum. Romney doesn't seem too creative in his choices; actually, he makes pretty awful choices. I think Romney does need a social conservative on his ticket, even if it will otherwise sink him amongst independents. I don't think Santorum will be Palin in that eh can at least formulate a sentence, but I do think he'll inspire more people to vote against Romney/Santorum than vote for them.

A strong moderate (read: well known with little/no controversy) might also help, but I'm coming up short on who would fit that bill that would actually inspire the GOP base.

Gah.... nevermind, I found the citation myself. Sadly, yeah... it doesn't actually mean that. Obama got more votes than Romney.... but he was running unopposed, and it's not like he got twice as many votes as Romney. He got approx 550,000 to Romney and Santorum each getting in the ballpark of 450,000. So not nearly as hilarious as I was hoping.
 
2012-03-07 05:19:47 PM  
I can't see it being Santorum. He's not discipline enough, and even worst, he has no appeal to independents. He's said way too much derped to be taken seriously.

Romney will be forced to take a more conservative that the base will like, and my guess is it will probably be Huckabee.
 
2012-03-07 05:25:37 PM  

Serious Black: It's a battle between the man that everyone accuses of wanting to make America look like Europe and the man that actually wants to make America look like Europe.


I find this a fun one to play with mentally since I see the "Europe" in question as regional:

Obama's European model: Modern-day Germany, strong social nets, leading economic power in the region, rock-solid economically, reasonably progressive socially.

Romney: Modern Greece, allow the country to fall into a steep nosedive, justifying a rock bottom sales price, then layoff the government wholesale and sell the shell to China for a tidy profit.

Santorum: Germany, late 15th century

Gingrich: Germany, 1939

Paul: Most anywhere in Europe, 1800+ BCE

There's been a lot of speculation (and we're all just speculating here) that it will actually be Ron Paul. Romney and Paul have been relatively gentle with each other in the primaries. While that makes sense for Romney (he'd be elevating Paul in the public eye if he did) it doesn't make much sense for Paul, who should be savaging the front-runner non-stop. So there has been a lot of speculation that they have an agreement and Paul is going to get the VP spot if (Oh who are we kidding, I've been calling Romney since well before the primary campaigning started) when Romney gets the nom.

Personally, I think that would be a very strong combo, so I'm really hoping it's not true. I could only hope that Romney would pick Santorum or Michelle Bachmann or someone else equally idiotic.... but I have a feeling Romney will probably pick Marco Rubio, or someone else none of us are really considering.

Current economic trends? You think the average voter cares more about the stock market going up or their gas prices going up?

It may not be fair for a President to be judged for the price of gas, but that hits home a lot more for the average voter than how stocks are doing.

Either way, I think that this election will be one where the winner will be the least disliked, unlike the 2008 election.

I seriously doubt that Paul would sign on to Romney's campaign without at least one major policy concession outside of economic issues. That seems about as likely as me winning the Powerball, getting struck by lightning, getting hit by a meteor, and getting my arms and legs chopped off with a rusty chainsaw by a psychopath all on the same day.

I know Romney and Paul are all buddy buddy, but I don't see what Ron Paul would bring to Romney's campaign. Yes, Paul has a dedicated fanbase, but I think they're more loud than they are numerous. While some will probably vote Republican anyway, I also think Paul's supporters are just as equally likely to split to either a 3rd party or Obama when Paul inevitably drops out. It will be funny to watch Ron Paul's supporters try to justify why they're now voting for a Romney ticket, though.


So Santorum is it if only because he is a rather sizeable presence on the campaign trail and would bring in a lot of supporters among a base Romney otherwise lacks.

The first thing he has to do is get the base excited enough to show up for him. The next thing he has to do is appeal to independents. That rules out just about everybody but Christie and Rubio, and only one of them is working for Romney. Although he could try to go for "statesman" type pick like Bolton, Condi, or maybe Petraeus. That I could see.

Rubio is just too inexperienced, I think. That's a big strike against him after the Palin debacle. Santorum nearly explcitly called Romney a liar in last night in his speech. He's not gonna get the nod based on that alone.

Again, I don't know who you were talking to, but pretty much everyone I knew, and pretty much everybody I talked to online (including right here) realized that the Bush camp was going to pull every dirty trick in the book to make it a competitive race (*coughSwiftBoatcough*), and most of us realized that Kerry was a shiatty candidate to boot.

FeedTheCollapse: So Santorum is it if only because he is a rather sizeable presence on the campaign trail and would bring in a lot of supporters among a base Romney otherwise lacks.


Bringing more votes to the general election is not the criteria for choosing a VP. The VP needs to be someone who the public would consider a reasonable replacement if the president dies or resigns. Biden brought no votes to Obama but he does give the impression of being reasonably competent and completely supportive of Obama's agenda.

The VP choice is always far more of a liability to a campaign than a boon. Thats one reason why they wait as long as possible to choose one.
