If it ends up Condi, that would be the best choice he could make.

Obama will try to hang both wars around her neck, but she's got a pretty strong following.

As someone who is strongly against Romney, I really really hope this is true.

He really doesn't want to get elected, does he. Talk about making it easy to run against Bush again.

She is smart, she is connected, she helps level the playing field as far as foreign and executive experience...you've got some serious negatives, but I wouldn't count her out that fast.

I think it would be fun to see a Joe vs Condi debate. Do the VPs do two?

Shearing off hunks of the black vote and female vote wouldn't hurt either.

My wife likes Condi a lot. Though she doesn't like Romney, I just asked if she'd vote for him if Condi was his running mate. She thought for a moment, and said yes.
 
2012-07-12 08:30:02 PM
This seems backwards. Shouldn't she be running for pres while Romney is the goofball VP?

She will be to Romney was Cheney was to Bush.
 
2012-07-12 08:30:17 PM
In light of the fact that Mittens feels Russia is our greatest foreign enemy, Condi makes a good choice. In light of the fact that Mitten's feeling that Russia is our greatest foreign enemy is completely batshiat insane, not so much.

I feel like that would just turn into a classified information leakfest once they got into the foreign policy questions...

**Exclusive**


Calling your fact-less post "exclusive" doesn't make it any more legit.

In recent days, she emailed supporters: "2012 is perhaps a turning point for the United States."

Well, this is pretty juicy stuff. Perhaps I judged too quickly.

She's a good pick - a smart, black woman with foreign policy experience. Doesn't really change my vote though, a Romney presidency would be a disaster.
 
2012-07-12 08:54:45 PM
I can see the question now:

"Ms. Rice, how do you feel running on the ticket with a Mormon, a member of a church that thought black people were failed, flawed and full of sin until 1978, when Mr. Romney was already in his thirties?"
 
2012-07-12 09:04:39 PM
"I'm saying there is no way I will do this, because it's really not me, I know my strengths. Gov. Romney needs to find someone who wants to run with him," Rice said. "There are many people who will do it very, very well, and I'll support the ticket."

She's said no, people. This was on Tuesday.

So if she says yes she's a perfect Romney running mate.
 
2012-07-12 09:11:10 PM
If they flipped the ticket I would be more impressed. While I disagree with her on many things, she is capable of being a successful president. He's an empty, power-tripping, shell of a human being.

This will be awesome!

Their campaign song can be Wacky Sax! With a wacky announcers voice saying "IF YOU LIKED BUSH CHENEY YOU'LL LOVE ROMNEY RICE! BRINGING YOU YET ANOTHER 9/11 AND A LONG PROTRACTED WAR WITH IRAN!!!"


Romney would lose half the Southern vote because they would never vote for a Black VP.

I could never trust her. She's as duplicitous as Rumsfeld; she just looks better in black leather boots.

But I would rather have her as president than Romney. She is far smarter than he is.

Her foreign policy experience isn't the kind that would appeal to moderates, swing voters, and disillusioned Democrats.

I sort of agree.

Romney is a empty f@ckwad shell of a human being but Rice isn't all that hot either.

Look who she chooses for company? Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and then there is always this....


Go to 2:30 for the point

Yeah, if you're going to try to court people angry at the President, bringing people up who were responsible for the worst abuses of one of the most disliked Presidents in US history is not the right way to do it.

If this was true, which I severely doubt, there is no way it won't be seen as "Hey, you got a Negro? So do I! And this one has tits! Awesome! Vote Romney."

I have a rule: never underestimate the stupidity of the GOP or the poor memory of the American people.

MS. RICE: I remember very well that the President was aware that there were issues inside the United States. He talked to people about this. But I don't remember the al Qaeda cells as being something that we were told we needed to do something about.

MR. BEN-VENISTE: Isn't it a fact, Dr. Rice, that the August 6th PDB warned against possible attacks in this country? And I ask you whether you recall the title of that PDB.

MS. RICE: I believe the title was "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States." Now, the PDB --

MR. BEN-VENISTE: Thank you.

I'd agree with this. Palin ended up being the Achilles heel of McCain's campaign, but Condi is no political rookie. She's far from perfect but would be an asset to his campaign.

Which is why she'll never accept to being Romney's VP nomination.
 
2012-07-12 10:06:42 PM
If he could get Bill Clinton he would still lose.
 
2012-07-12 10:07:22 PM
Okay, I'm not saying that Romney should pick Condi, but that's the level of running mate he needs. Sarah Palin was a train wreck, but any sins you can pin on Condi she can glare at you and crush your soul.
 
2012-07-12 10:07:45 PM
Washington, D.C., 12 April 2004 - President Bush on Saturday, 10 April 2004, became the first sitting president ever to release publicly even a portion of his Daily Brief from the CIA. The page-and-a-half section of the President's Daily Brief from 6 August 2001, headlined "Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US," had generated the most contentious questioning in last week's testimony by national security adviser Condoleezza Rice before the commission investigating the September 11th attacks. Dr. Rice continued to insist that the Brief did not amount to a real warning, while several commissioners seemed to think otherwise.

Yeah, go with her.
 
2012-07-12 10:07:56 PM
Voting for President based on the veep is like buying a car for the cupholder.

I don't care who his veep is, he would be president and he is an asshat.
 
2012-07-12 10:07:58 PM

Earguy: propasaurus: Trial balloon.

Yep.


Sounds like it.

Condi harkens back to Bush and Bush harkens back to a lot of the things that made people vote for Obama.

Don't think this is such a wise choice at all.

2012-07-12 10:08:22 PM
She's smart, well-connected, and relatively well respected even by her opponents... she's got nothing to gain by joining a losing ticket as a vp.
 
2012-07-12 10:08:37 PM
They might have held their noses and voted for the left-leaning Mormon.

The left-leaning Mormon / Black woman who is rumored to be a lesbian ticket? No way the base will vote that combo in. They'll stay home.

Also Drudge hasn't really been correct about much in a long long time. He's basically still coasting on the Bill Clinton blowjob. Think about that. You know guys who peaked in high school? Drudge is the political blogger equivalent. "Remember that time in '97 when....."

I'm going to say that based on the above, it's not going to be Condi.
 
2012-07-12 10:08:41 PM
Ya know, if I were Condi this would be alot of fun.

You know there's no chance in hell of winning, but you get the VIP treatment again for awhile, sell some more books, get to ramp-up the speaking engagements with a few more zeroes at the end of the fee when it's over and done with and you spar with someone that's decent like Biden on national TV.

I would say the worst part of it is that Sarah Palin would come knocking at your door after it was all over saying how you two have so much in common.
