In a word, Hell No (ok, two words).

The office of VP “isn’t worth a warm bucket of s*it”. What good would it do to have the conservative in that office, while the liberal is running the real show?

The only person I loathe just a shade less than Romney is Gingrich. I don’t even think I’d vote Third Party on that one. It would so disgust me I’d probably sit home.

I wonder if we’d even take a state.

What an utter nightmare that would be.

Gingrich/Santorum would be ideal.
Santorum/Gingrich would be livable.
Romney would be Purgatory, better than Hell that was Obama.

I think some of you “conservatives” are so blinded you’d vote for Satan instead of Obama.

Hussein is a nightmare but can be fought. To vote the enemy into your own camp is the height of insanity.

And people wonder why the elite dismiss us without a thought.

I saw this loser scenario in 2008. A weak establishment RINO and the his Party tries to humor conservatives by picking a VP they could vote for. No thanks! Fool me once shame on me. Fool me twice .....

There is NOBODY conservative enough at the VP level to begin to balance out that slimy flip-flopping Massachusetts liberal. Romney and his RINO toadies can stick it.

Neither Romney or Gingrich would take the VP slot but Santorum would. The more likely question might be would you accept a Romney-Santorum ticket.

But then who would be surprised

There isn’t a single person who Romney could choose as his running mate that would make him a good president.

We need a president that will take on the entrenched DC establishment. Romney isn’t going to do that. For that matter, neither will Santorum.

Please tell me how is Romney going to pick for his VP someone who “resigned in disgrace”, as Romney lied repeatedly in the debates. The media would never stop asking him how he could pick someone he said that about.

“It is unlikely that we will see a ticket with two white guys on it again. Rubio or Jindal might pass muster as non-white guys.”

The only reason I suggest that a Romney-Santorum ticket is not out of the question is that if Romney comes up 100 or 200 delegates short I can see a marriage of convenience with Santorum bartering delegates for the VP slot.I do not think either man is going to let all their efforts to get on the national ticket go to waste.For Newt, it is personal. For Santorum, it is not.

AH!.. you see this too... Romney or Santo gets elected they will blame the crash on the republicans. Brilliant really..

No Newt... Obamas handlers win.. either way.. Santo, Willard or Zero..

Newt wins... He starts a massive deconstruction project..

Nope, because I can’t count on Romney buying it sometime during his term and leaving Gingrich as president.

The VP is just a figurehead as far as I’ve ever been able to tell.

Speaking of Romney being toxic...Forget Romney being the ‘white horse’, he is closer to the pale horse...

When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come and see!” I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. (rev. 6:7-8)

WAAAIIIT a minute! I'm NOT a Romney fan by any means. Good grief. IF Romney gets the nom (and yes, I think he will, sorry) we have to deal with that reality. So my point is how do we make lemonade out of lemons?

We can navel gaze until the cows come home, but the delegates are who they are. They are voting as we speak. If they don't like Romney let them vote him down.

McCain was disaster for a lot of reasons, the biggest being his absolute refusal to go after Obama. But for some reason, the delgates went for him. And we were stuck.

We turn the “Tea Party” into a REAL party and let the GOP die the death it deserves if they keep trying to shove Romney at us.

I find it very ironic that the grandson of a man who left the US to escape polygamy laws and had slaves, wants to head up the party that was FOUNDED to do away with Mormon polygamy and slavery.

We don’t make lemonade out of Romney.

What we do during the general election is obvious. It’s juvenile to say “I’ll sit home.” Yes, even if it’s Romney we will check the box that says “Liberal RINO.” But only because he is half a degree better than Obama.

The consequences of Romney getting the nomination will be after that. Most of the true conservatives will leave the Republican party. It’s going to happen. We’re done. The party is going to lose ten or twenty percent of its voters, or maybe more over the long run.

Only God knows where things go after that. Something new is created. Time will tell whether it’s good or bad.

romney... gingrich... santorum...

none of them have the juice to bring out enough of the base to matter.
1. romney loses 10-20% of the base by being mormon
2. gingrinch loses 10-20% due to the wife swapping and being old
3. and santorum doesn’t energize people enough to get them out of their seat

the left knows all this and also knows they have a hard leftie that energizes the base so much that even during these times he polls at 40-45% (amazing what kool-aid can do). any polls the left releases stating some gop candidate has a shot is really trying to steer the nomination towards that candidate.

plan accordingly
