(Vanity) Conservatives,What Ticket Will Seal The Deal For Romney? Romney/McDonnell or Romney/Ryan ?

Posted on 03/17/2012 10:11:49 PM PDT by Liberals_R_BiPolar_Turkeys

Assuming Romney is the projected nominee, he will need a VP that will please the GOP,Tea Party & Conservative Base. Most of us want Marco Rubio, but he still hasn't shown any serious interest. That leaves McDonnell&Ryan next in line. Either one will give Romney a boost against Obama. Virgina&North Carolina being crucial would be the reason to choose McDonnell. Wisconsin & the rust belt would be the factor with Paul Ryan. It's a tough decision. There are a few others, but if there was a poll, Ryan would probably be the choice if Rubio bowed out.

If Paul Ryan had been in the mix all this time, he would of had about 600 delegates by now, but Romney would still be here. The rest would of bowed out a month ago.

Then most of us need to look a lot closer at what he’s been saying about amnesty and the DREAM act. We don’t need another version of Dubya.

Romney/Santorum.  That's the plan Lawyer Ricky started with and that's probably the Bishop Romney plan as well.

Romney is such a died in the wool Vichy Republican he loves the idea because it's the traditional Vichy approach to "balancing" the ticket along ideological lines. I'd be surprised if Lawyer Ricky and Bishop Romney aren't already talking campaign strategy for the Vichy Republican ticket of, Bishop Romney/Lawyer Ricky.

Frankly, if Romney gets the nomination, I will no longer give a flying F what happens. We will be doomed and I believe that Romney/Obama is no choice at all. Why even vote? Just flip a coin. Santorum is a lightweight and would have to go through 3 years of on the job training. This is no time for that crap. Newt is our only chance.

The main thing that worries me is Obamacare. I don't for a minute believe that Romney will do what needs to be done. It must be repealed. I don't think Santorum has the clout that will be needed to take on the rabid liberals that are all in for Obamacare. They and the mainstream media will eat his lunch. Newt has faced the liberal's machine before and won. He eats the mainstream news media for snacks. I can only hope that people wise up in time.

Silly question.
Simple answer.
NONE.
Romney would still be the President and that is and should be unacceptable to a conservative. Doesn’t matter anyhow because Romney has ZERO ability to beat Obama. Its the old lesser of two evils situation. Basically what we had with McCain vs Obama. People are tired of that loser game and are just not voting. I will not vote if it is Obama vs Romney. My franchise is to important to me to use for a lesser of two evils or to use as a throw away vote.

Bob McDonnell would be a good choice for Mitt Romney's running mate. He could probably deliver Virginia, and he has real executive experience already. He was in the Army for four years and worked for a few years with one of the hospital corporations. That experience will give him credibility on health care issues. He was born in Pennsylvania, so he might even draw a few votes there.

Another strong possibility would be Jim Talent of Missouri. While he doesn't have executive experience in elected office, he's a long-time conservative favored by right-to-life and other conservative groups. Missouri is still a traditional battleground state even though the GOP has won this state for the past several elections. His weakness is that he has almost no private sector experience.

Bill Owens of Colorado is another possibility. He has executive experience in government as a two-term governor of Colorado. He spent a few years in the oil and gas business in Colorado. After the Columbine shooting, he resisted huge increases in gun laws. He has been on the Romney team for quite a while. Colorado is one of the states that the GOP needs to win in order to win the presidency. If he could deliver Colorado, his presence on the ticket would help a great deal.

Tim Pawlenty is a longshot possibility. In his run last year, he didn't connect well with the voters, and that lack of connection is not a good sign. However, he had built strong campaigns in Florida and Ohio. He has one of the best pro-life records of anyone in politics, and if people are willing to accept a pro-lifer who is nice and not nasty, his record should reassure those voters. He has good executive experience as a cost-cutting governor. He probably couldn't swing Minnesota into the GOP column, and the inability to swing any particular state might keep him off the ticket.

Fundamental transformation was a declaration of war.

You’re right - we DO need an opposition party. But the path forward is rocky, and we may not get there without a fuss.

There’s no fuss in the GOPe. They either agree with Obama about the big stuff, or they are unwilling to pay the price of true opposition.

Either way, a Romney nomination is the end of the GOP.

Marco Rubio is inexperienced and unqualified to be VP. But Romney would probably choose him in a cynical attempt to pander to Hispanics. It wouldn’t work, though. Because to Hispanics outside the Cuban community, Rubio is just another rich white guy.

“Fundamental transformation”

Phrases like that are what the establishment fears.

There is only one party and they are only fighting over last of the carcass they have begun to eat.

There may be less meat than anyone realizes.

Your right about the GOP, they might be at their end.

Apparently we are now strangers in our own land.

Can the scale be tipped back?

It's been going on over a long time.

Now if we organize to fight for freedom there will be jail.

A brokered convention seems like our last hope.

It may get ugly.

Nothing- and I do mean absolutely Nothing can ever make me vote for Romney.
If ever a candidate has run a campaign in reverse (meaning every conceivable reason NOT to vote for them), it is him.
Is he as bad as 0? I just don’t know. *I* don’t trust him At All.
Can we afford to find out? No.

My humble (or not) opinion is that if there isn’t some way to have Newt as the nominee (preferably with Alan West, Paul Ryan, Rick Perry or Herman Cain as VP/ Santorum last), this country is in for a very hard time.

(I am new. :-) And probably lost. Can someone point me to the Newt ping list, please? And what is a ping anyway? I’ve been lurking for months, but haven’t managed to figure that out.)
