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.
What a stupid question. It’s Myth Romney and Barry Soroto 2012.
Romney off the ticket. I will accept nothing less.
Can you just imagine Romney in his office with Ryan,McDonnell,Portman,West,Rand Paul,Palin, etc, etc, and he is making his decision like “Bachelor”? lol,,,with the roses,,,,and who will be left standing?
only Romney supporters are concerned with this type of thing.
Is this a Vanity?
This ticket without Romney on it.
Who is “McDonnell?
Stuff both Romney and Santorum in the toilet and flush!!
None. What part of that is so hard to comprehend ?
Absolutely Nothing. Not now, not ever.
There will be skiing in hell before I vote for Romney/Anybody.
Romney/MyAss oughta do it
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.
“Most of us want Marco Rubio”
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.
Palin/Gingrich should clinch Romney as ambassador to Switzerland.
Per Mark, You are an Zero/Joe stupid supporter.
Not that I give a flying fig what you or some stupid “Mark” think.
The RINOS NEVER support a conservative, yet always bully us into voting for their crap nominees. I’m not doing it ANY MORE.
Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost. -John Adams
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.
The great one.
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.
Just like the backstabber Romney, himiself.
The Romney deal is already sealed and it sealed me out.
Newt And Sarah Palin that will seal Romneys Doom,Just get the hell Out
By the way, do you like Romney because he is ineligible
or because he is FOR death panels?
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.
Romney cannot beat Obama, so your question is of no interest.
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.
Per VMIVol, voting for Romney makes you a gun grabbing, global warming, socialist
Any ticket with Romney on it is a non-starter in this household.
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.
Romney will pick Obama as his running mate, They both win that way.
Vanity: None! (Are you a romney “floater”)? Floating ideas: because you can take one back to the ‘candidate’: Drop out.
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.
No ticket with Romney on it is acceptable. A 1st Romney term might as well be a 2nd Obama term.
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.)
Governor Sarah Palin! Or, actually, what she signifies.
