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?"

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.

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."

Several times, I correctly predicted that OsamaHusseinCare would be upheld as a valid exercise of the tax power. Several of those times, I asked people to bookmark the thread I posted that in. I knew the threads would be rubbed in my face if I was wrong. But I thought naively thought some con would be gracious enough to acknowledge I was right the whole time when the decision finally came down. None did. Funny that.

Tonight, knowing full well some con will rub my face in this thread if I'm wrong, but will not have the decency to acknowledge if I turn out to be right, I predict this:

Romney will pick Mark Rubio. Bookmark it.

Condi will not help with the black vote, period. She might--might be different enough from Palin to peel off a few female votes. But I don't think anyone in the Romney campaign is looking at the Palin experience, or the Ferraro experience, and saying "third time's a charm." Rather, they're looking at those experiences and saying "women don't vote for women in the veep slot."

So instead they're going to try to gain some lost ground with Latinos. I doubt it will work, because the main reason Latinos vote Democrat is that they know the Republican base is comprised chiefly of white people who live in perpetual, pants-sh*tting fear of brown people. Even though they're "culturally conservative" in some ways, they're not dumb enough to vote for the party that wants them to show papers on random request by the police.

But at least there's no precedent thus far saying it won't work. Unlike for the proposition that women will gravitate to a ticket with a woman in the number two spot. And that's gonna be decisive.

I guess I don't think calling her a lesbian is "mud slinging", since i don't consider being gay a bad thing. I don't need her to officially come out of the closet any more than I needed Ricky Martin or Anderson Cooper to officially come out. The fact of the matter is according to her biographer who went through her public real estate records, she shares home ownership and a mutual line of credit with her closest female friend Randy Bean, who is also an unmarried female of undisclosed sexual orientation. Her closest known male friend is an openly gay Stanford professor.

Not hard to put 2 and 2 together and come up with "Probably a reason why she's never actually ran for public office in the GOP".

Poke your head in over at Freeperville. A significant minority of the right-wing base (that Romney can't afford to lose) is reacting to the suggestion with quips such as "Do we need another Lesbian in the White House? No thank you."

Keep in mind, this is the same chunk of the base that loves to paint just about any female academic as a lesbian, and has recently been arguing- openly- that the country went to hell because women were given the vote. And Romney has to play to these people.

Shrugging Atlas: 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.


Because "did not amount to a real warning" worked so well for these guys:

bugontherug: Tonight, knowing full well some con will rub my face in this thread if I'm wrong, but will not have the decency to acknowledge if I turn out to be right, I predict this:

Romney will pick Mark Rubio. Bookmark it.




Okay. I have a few bookmarks like this.

This is my favorite:

Oh FFS. We haven't even had a primary yet. Here is how it will go down.

1: The Iowa Caucus will be dominated by the conservative candidate with the largest field organization in the state, which is Perry.
2: Romney will win New Hampshire because it's farking New Hampshire, Huntsman will finish a surprising second or third. Thus causing a week of "Omg could Huntsman win the nomination?"
3: After South Carolina, the race will be down to three or four candidates. Cain will gone, so will Newt, Bachmann, and Frothy. They will need money to play in several states at once and none of them will have it since they are all going after the same base, which is also the base Perry has.
4: As the primary season goes on, the Koch PACs and the Rove PACs will step in to pick sides. Thus beginning a proxy war between Teabaggers and old GOP. Both have large sums of money, but only the Teabaggers have the field manpower.
5: Huntsman will become a pest for Romney in the Northeast and Mormon areas, due to his moderate stances that appeal to that small section of GOP voters. We will have talk about Huntsman for VP since he appeals to moderates and democrats.
6: Super Tuesday shows that the GOP base now cares more about purity of thought then winning general elections, as was shown in the 2010 primaries across the country.
7: The dueling Super PACs will pull out all the stops in attacking the other side. Breaking the 11th Commandment
8: There will be several ballots at the convention. Names will be floated forcing the Rove camp to give in to the Teabaggers in order to keep them in the party. In order to broker a peace and salvage a ticket they will pick Perry with a moderate VP of the GOP institutional choosing. Thus hoping that they can out spend Obama with their combined wealth.

Richard Clarke said "I know you guys hate me 'cause I don't fit your bullshiat view of realpolitik, but this Bin Laden is probably incubating a big plot that might just happen pretty soon"

And Condi sat in her office cramming her head up her ass.

Not many people will see it that way. She's extremely bright and knows her shiat.


She's got a rather large farking blind spot where things concern Saudis and airplanes. Personally I think that along disqualifies her from being either bright or knowing her shiat.

farkityfarker: It's mean of us to imply that someone is homosexual.

It's perfectly acceptable when the other side does it, however.


No one is implying that Condi is gay because that's somehow supposed to be bad. Just as a case where her own party will understand the subtext of how she lives her life and turns on her.

It's not being used as an insult or anything - that's the Republican way.

dennysgod: Did she change her mind from two weeks ago when she said:

In an interview with "CBS This Morning," the former secretary of state said, "There is no way that I will do this," when asked if she would accept a position as the No. 2 on this year's Republican presidential ticket.

"Charlie, I didn't run for student council president. I don't see myself in any way in elected office. I love policy. I'm not particularly fond of politics," she told host Charlie Rose, adding that she thinks Romney has "terrific judgment."

Pressed on whether she would turn it down if asked, she said, "I'm saying there is no way that I will do this, because it's really not me. I know my strengths, and governor Romney needs to find someone who wants to run with him."

/Is it me or is Condi still hitable?


yeah, poor Romney seems to think he has pull. I'm guessing he is under the impression he can convince any and all he isn't doomed to failure. That and i think he's floating names to get a feel for the running mate climate.

Romney's thinking of going with the incompetent woman who ignored the 9/11 warnings and then lied about knowing of their existence?

Earguy: Mrtraveler01: Earguy: Shearing off hunks of the black vote and female vote wouldn't hurt either.

Because all it takes is a black candidate to run on the Republican ticket in order for blacks who usually vote Democrat to vote Republican.

Just ask Governor Lynn Swann.

Homophobic blacks? Religious blacks? There's lots of blacks that hold "Republican values"...all they need is a justification to break ranks so they can hit the lever and say "praise Jesus" at the same time. With proper campaigning marketing, it can happen. The Republicans just haven't figured out how to make it work...yet.


There's no way. Southern whites won't be having it. They still hold separate proms in places like Mississippi. It's an unholy alliance, ironically enough, but it'll never happen.

The GOP went full derp WAY too hard to really ever significantly compete for non-white, non-male, or non-Christian voters again.

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


Bingo. The fundie racists that make up a significant chunk of the GOP base are already iffy about voting for a Mormon, but they'd fall in line to get the black 'Muslim' out of office. Adding a black woman to the ticket will just alienate that chunk of the Republican base even more, while her connections to Bush will alienate some of the remaining undecided voters. And Romney needs every bit of support he can get.

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.


There's no reason that anyone would lie on the internet. NOBODY likes Condi Rice, and only a moron would change their vote based on having her on the ticket. Plus, she's shown no interest in running.

Shrugging Atlas: 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.


Some of her statements may be "counter-factual."
