OH NO, Say It Ain't So: T-Paw's Got the Personality of a Broken Parking Meter!
Reaganite Republican ^ | July 16, 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 07/16/2012 8:21:57 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican

Rumor has it Mittens has 'made his decision'- and it is lame



Uh, HELLO!

Anybody on Team Romney remember boring Republicans losing elections they should have won like Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, and GHW Bush? Look in the tapes, Mitt... you could use some help...

And Tim Pawlenty makes those guys look like Johnny Carson!

How bout the TEA PARTY Mitt- couldn't throw us a bone, for chrissake?

WHY NOT Sununu... West... Rubio... or Bachmann?

Yeah, things look good for us right now, what with Obama blowing $100M on negative attack ads to little or noone effect, but are you really so cocky that you think you can win this thing shackled to a corpse?

I knew it was going to be hard supporting you, but expected conservatives (and those who know it actually takes some personality and charm to win elections) might get a little bit more to pin our hopes on than a wet rag that Michelle Bachmann had zero trouble rolling right-over in the primary..

Good grief, man- the Veep is supposed to be an attack-dog, especially when the guy on the top of the ticket comes across like C3PO in a Clark Kent wig!

What the hell are you thinking, Skippy?

Not to worry. This election is all about Obama and what isn’t about Obama will be all about Romney. If Romney chooses Pawlenty, it just won’t move the needle in either direction.

Pawlenty is a ‘safe’ pick.

Romney is not going to go with some one who clashes with his own person/idea.

Just imagine the debate between Pawlenty vs. Biden?

not that anyone watches the veep debate.

but the kooks at DNC put forth a website demonstrating how “possible” repub veeps were bad choices based on past mistakes...

That takes a pair of stones to claim Biden as yours and then point across the aisle and say “that pick is stupid!”

Just a few days ago the media was “certain” it was Condi. WTF?

T-Paw is not my choice and I suspect not the choice for a lot of Americans.

Is this another cas of the left pricing their (beatable) opponents?

I can’t see the base getting overly excited by this choice.

I hope this another trial balloon.

The problem is the VP is traditionally the ATTACK DOG on the stump... and Mitt needs this desperately, he’d lousy at it himself

Pawlenty is a LOSER- just look at the primaries, I sure don’t want him running for President in 2016 or 2020!

Bob Dole was a certain winner???? You might be able to make a reasonable case for Ford (early RINO model that he was) or Bush 41 but Dole???? Have you checked the calibration date on your political sensibilities meter lately?

Given your forum handle, I don’t see how you could or would want to make a case for any of them.

Mitt is playing like a Democrat. He’s picking someone so disgusting overall that he feels his chances of getting assassinated are minimized as no one will want his choice of VP to move into the President’s slot.

I mean, look at Obama... God help us, I don’t want anything happening to him that would put Biden in charge. (shudder)

But, Mitt still hasn’t done anything to earn my vote. I’m still waiting for that.

Great graphic!

Milquetoast tells us a thing or two.

1. The s.o.b. conservatives (who will give no quarter to the GOPE) are OUT of contention forever, in the Republican Party of the future.

2. The conservatives around here who are more pragmatic than they are conservative are also OUT, because the Party will become a more obvious arm of the DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST PARTY and these useful tools will be mocked.

2. The conservatives who are more panicked and fearful than they are conservative will be squashed in the exodus from the socialist Republican Party.

The base of the Republican Party, while howling all the way, has gone over to the dark side and are now complicit, cooperative and compliant with the machine who rolled them.

Laughable, if it weren’t so pathetic.

I’m honestly believing that the GOP is the “relief valve” party to calm the masses because the powerbrokers know they can never convert the US to full socialism. And if they tried far too many people would really rise up and revolt, regardless of how many cops with guns there are. So, they give us the illusion of “choice”, when they just push the same agenda regardless of who wins. We need a new long term plan to drive socialism out of the US.

Slightly off topic, but...

According to Drudge, the New York Times is the source for Romney’s vice presidential pick.

Only one way that could happen.

The Romney campaign leaked the story to the NYT.

How long will it take before the GOP leadership understands that the MSM is utterly committed to the destruction of Conservative principles?

If we need to leak, leak to Fox News or the Washington Times or National Review.

T-Paw has actually been very good on the stump lately. He also energizes Evangelicals and helps in the upper Midwest. And Romney is comfortable with him. Not a bad pick.

You have been watching to much American Idol.

But, so have the majority of Americans. Many women are looking for a sexy, leading man type, to be the leader of the country. If he rides a white stallion with a flowing mane, so much the better.

Who would want two boring men in gray suits operating in the background making the economy hum along and never bring any drama into our lives? Wouldn't it be so much better to see Obama prancing around the White House issuing royal commands about anything that pops into his head?

I hope so. As an Iowan who watched him campaign here I can’t say that he was very good. He seems like a decent and competent man but very dull and uninspiring. His wife seems like a better pick. I heard from well placed sources here in Iowa (again, just heard) that his polling among women was awful. They see him as weak and kind of “wimpy”. I don’t think this is a good thing.

Virtually every moderate in office is only there because conservatives have compromised.

Pawlenty’s a dumb pick, I suppose. It could put Minnesota in play, so that would be interesting.

Unless there’s a black, hispanic, female governor with foreign policy experience and great charisma out there, Romney is stupid to chase anyone but Marco Rubio.

If Rubio is not selected, then it’s only because Rubio turned Romney down. The only reason Rubio would turn Romney down is because Rubio is a rising star who is destined to one day run for the presidency in his own right. Why turn Romney down? Because Rubio doesn’t need the name recognition a VP run would provide him. He’s already a household name.

Rubio would turn down Romney only because of being advised that Romney is surely to lose the election. Rubio would not want to be associated with a loser.

So, it makes sense that watching Rubio might say something about Romney’s chances.

I heard Pawlenty on the radio a few days ago. At first, I thought it was someone else because he sounded crisp, clear of subject and fired up. Very un-Pawlenty like - he must have been channeling his inner Christie.

Well, who knows, some people will rise to the occasion.

If this is true(?), Romney is elected and Pawlenty stays true to form as a competent administrator, but without the flash and dash, his political future will depend on the next four years.

It would probably help Romney to be able to buy some breathing room, electorally. Rasmussen has Obama within 23 EV’s of the required 270 to win.

Everyone is looking at the Bush pathways to victory, but maybe Romney is thinking in terms of changing the scenario a bit.

Minnesota is an Obama state, but Pawlenty might put it in play. The same could be said for Snyder in Michigan and Corbett in Pennsylvania. MI and PA would be huge additions that would make other routes to victory possible for Romney.

Minnesota is what, 10 EV’s? 10 is important but not as much as MI’s 16 or PA’s 20.

Would he be willing to trade a Rubio in Florida, a state in which he has a prayer, with say a Corbett in PA, a place where he simply isn’t even in play? (Santorum?)

T-Paw will not deliver Minnesota.

We were the only state not voting for Reagan.

We have only become more socialist since then, even after a brief foray into la la land with Governor Jesse Ventura. That was after a Governor Arne Carlson (GOP-e before it was labeled as such). We stray occasionally, but never to conservatives.

I am free to vote my conscience in MN due to the irrelevancy of the tabulation.

I do vote down ticket though, and there are a few Conservatives here.
