Should Romney pick Scott Walker for VP?

Posted on 06/05/2012 9:03:11 PM PDT by Arthurio

Should Romney pick Scott Walker for VP?

With such a move, Romney could put WI in his column, and help him in other working class states like Ohio and Penn.

Not to mention that it will make the prospect of voting for Romney more palatable for conservatives!

I cannot see any downsides. What am I missing here?

NO,NO, NO, do not curse Walker for his success. Romney is a liberal.

No, Walker was pretty lucky to survive this, and it was largely because people thought the recall itself was an overstep. His being on the ballot would not help defeat Obama at all.

No. leave him in Wisconsin to stay the course this time around. I like him, but I would rather have a more potent and nationally known Conservative keeping an eye on Mittens.

Now, when 2016 rolls around... we’ll see.

Wisconsin is working fine for us now. Don’t rock that boat.

Absolutely Not!!!!!

Don’t tie him to Romney. Allow him to get Wisconsin fully on track. Then he will have an undeniable record to take to the presidency. After surviving the recall, then abandoning the state, it would be a huge turn off.

NO! Walker was shown a vote of extreme confidence by the Wisconsin citizens. Let him finish the job that he was elected to. Twice.

Romney and his team loathed Palin. Walker is at least as conservative as Palin if not more so. It would be a brilliant move for Romney to pick Walker. But his ego and leftism couldn't handle it. Romney is not good enough to share the same ticket with him.

We need for Walker’s policies in Wisky to bear fruit and show the rest of the country that without a doubt, his policies are good for the economy....if that happens, he will be unstoppable in 2016.

In one word, "no."

Let Walker finish what he's started. He barely has had time to work to improve WI. Let him become more popular and tested.

Don't send him into obscurity either on a losing ticket or standing behind and getting blamed for Romney's missteps as surely he's bound to do.

NO, I’m not voting for the UNborn baby killer. I have to stand before my GOD and explain why I drank the former grand old party’s koolaid, which is as bad as the DEMONCRARTS koolaid, lesser of 2 evils is still and Evil. Our Founding Fathers are turning over in their graves at what we are doing to the REPUBLIC they gave us, giving it to socialist and marxist.

"NO, I’m not voting for the UNborn baby killer."

Romney is pro-life. What are you talking about?

From the Romney web site.

"Mitt Romney is pro-life. He believes it speaks well of the country that almost all Americans recognize that abortion is a problem. And in the quiet of conscience, people of both political parties know that more than a million abortions a year cannot be squared with the good heart of America. Mitt believes that life begins at conception and wishes that the laws of our nation reflected that view."

No, it is best that Walker stay where he is and finish the job. He wouldn’t help the ticket much anyway.

Romney should pick Rubio, Rand Paul or Paul Ryan.

What you`re missing here is twice within the past 18 months, the voters of Wisconsin elected Scott Walker to be their Governor.. not VP or anything else. And I`m quite sure he`d like to settle in and actually govern for awhile.

He may be personally pro life, but he signed pro abortion bills. FLIP FLOP. All he had to do is veto them and let the dems take all the blame by over riding it.

Romneycare now funding FREE abortions

What I think you need to ask yourself is. Will there be more abortions with Romney as president or Obama?

The answer is obvious.

Not supporting the defeat of Obama is in fact helping the Dems in the promotion of their murderous pro-choice agenda and will result in far more abortions.

What I think you need to ask yourself is: Will conservatives / republicans be responsible for allowing more abortions with Romney as president or Obama? The answer is obvious. Replacing Obama with a republican sharing the same ideology is in fact taking responsibility for the crime of murder rather than attempting to put a stop to it.

There will be less abortion funding and less abortions with Republicans and Romney in power than with Democrats and Obama. Look who is trying to DEFUND planned parenthood, it's not democrats or Obama. Obama has NEVER flip flopped, he wants death camps for the unborn.

Our responsibility as voters is who gets elected, not who gets an abortion or who pays for it.

Bottom line: If Obama gets reelected more of the unborn are likely to die than if Romney gets elected. The difference in the two outcomes is likely to be substantial.

My mind is made up.

You have made up your mind. That is your right and duty and I will defend to my death your ability to do so in this country. I'm not your judge and this is not judgement day. But that day is coming and I won't prepare for it by supporting *any* candidate I know to advocate the murder of the unborn.

Do NOT DRINK EITHER PARTIES KOOLAID. EVIL IS STILL EVIL. One promises freebies, the other promises and NEVER delivers changes.

Have you been reading what the gop plans to do to the Military? But they won't cut their own pay, fancy retirement, or life time premium healthcare. BUT they will GUT the Military's. Just like the demoncrats plan to do.

Do we need some changes at the Dept of Defense, yes, but not in the pay or benefits of the Troops. Retire those aging 30-40 year career invested still fighting Viet Nam war Admirals and Generals who look good on TV, golf course and at a party, the only thing they are good at any more. Advance the lower ranks up the career ladder. It is the mid ranks that make the Military function, and do the training any way.

Romney’s VP pick will find that to be the end of their political life. If Romney looses it’s over this year. If Romney wins he won’t win a second term and that will be the end for both of them.

Romney can pick Chris Cristy or Jeb Bush or Hatfeild? the other Mormon gov, or any Rino. That would take Romney and the Rino out of contention for 2016.
