Romney should withdraw and save America.

There is zero chance he will pick a white male. And Rubio is too conservative for the genius consultants.

It will be a woman and or minority and the person will be more liberal than Romney.

PALIN 2016

It starts now, as Vice President Palin.

Romney would cinch the general, with every Tea Party on his side.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
George Santayana

“The Massachusetts Republican Party died last Tuesday.
The cause of death: failed leadership.

The party is survived by a few leftover legislators
and a handful of county officials and grassroots activists
who have been ignored for years.
Services will be public and a mass exodus of taxpayers will follow.
In lieu of flowers, send messages to Republican voters
warning them about a certain presidential candidate named Romney.”

- Boston Herald, 11/12/2006


"In 2006, while Romney was chairman of the National Republican
Governors Association - a group dedicated to electing more
Republican governors - his own hand-picked Republican successor
as governor lost badly to the Democrat, despite the fact that Republicans
have held the governorship in Massachusetts since 1990. Romney largely
ignored the Massachusetts elections and spent most of the time
during the campaign out of state building his presidential campaign.
He came back and publicly campaigned for the Republican candidate
the day before the general election!
“Locally, this is a rebuke to Mitt Romney and checking out within six months
after being elected and having accomplished almost nothing,”

[Jim] Rappaport [former chairman of the state Republican Party]."
- Boston Globe, 11/8/2006


"Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans,
has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced
,
instead tapping registered Democrats or independents -- including two gay lawyers who
have supported expanded same-sex rights, a Globe review of the nominations has found.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats
or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians
or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show.
In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters,
and 14 registered Democrats."
- Boston Globe 7/25/2005


Romney Rewards one of the State's Leading Anti-Marriage Attorneys by Making him a Judge
Romney told the U.S. Senate on June 22, 2004, that the "real threat to the States is not the
constitutional amendment process, in which the states participate,
but activist judges who disregard the law and redefine marriage . . ."
Romney sounds tough but yet he had no qualms advancing the legal career of one
of the leading anti-marriage attorneys.
He nominated Stephen Abany to a District Court.
Abany has been a key player in the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association which,
in its own words, is "dedicated to ensuring that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision
on marriage equality is upheld, and that any anti-gay amendment or legislation is defeated."
- U.S. Senate testimony by Gov. Mitt Romney, 6/22/2004 P>


"Romney announces he won't fill judicial vacancies before term ends
Despite his rhetoric about judicial activism, Romney announced that
he won't fill all the remaining vacancies during his term - but instead
leave them for his liberal Democrat successor!

Governor Mitt Romney pledged yesterday not to make a flurry of lame-duck
judicial appointments in the final days of his administration . . . David Yas,
editor of Lawyers Weekly, said Romney is "bucking tradition" by resisting the urge to
fill all remaining judgeships. "It is a tradition for governors to use that power to appoint judges
aggressively in the waning moments of their administration," Yas said.
He added that Romney has been criticized for failing to make judicial appointments.
"The legal community has consistently criticized him for not filling open seats quickly enough
and being a little too painstaking in the process and being dismissive of the input of the
Judicial Nominating Commission," Yas said.

When Romney doesn’t withdraw from the race, will you be joining the Obama campaign?

Start thinking ahead.

Forward.

I’m guessing that Rick Snyder is on the short list. Liberal enough to make mittens look conservative and he has a proxy record of success.

Well with Romney being the most liberal Republican nominee in the history of the United States, who cares. I am sure he will just pick another liberal.

Aw man.

Then Michigan would fall back into the crapper.

But hadn’t thought of that. Snyder pretty much already did what Walker is trying to do, in Wisconsin.

Michigan not that long ago was as bad off as California.

It’s fought back all the way, already to the national norm.

Amazing really.

If he picked Natalie Portman I would actually vote for him!!

Snyder signed good legislation sent to his desk. Just the other day he made national news for pushing an internet sales tax.

The best/worst part is listening to the incoherent hate speech gurgling out of the local Demwits’ throats re: Snyder, who was an (unknown) successful businessman before and a cause for suspicion during the primary, during which he cleaned the clocks of the well-known career pols. He’s sort of an Ahnold-style eclectic Republican, but with actual administrative experience, plus he has a Pubbie legislature (which Ahnold never had, if memory serves).

He should definitely step down now. All he’s doing is giving hope to the Obama forces that they can win.

My sleeper is Kasich. Fiscally sound conservative, but again, white male, minority or female a pragmatic choice. Rubio a bit of a pandering choice, though I like him. I don’t think Condi would take it. I always like JC Watts but baggage and not in key state.

He will pick a conservative. Maybe a woman? the Governor of Arizona? North Carolina? Maybe Perry of Texas, It will be someone from the west or south. I can say who it will not be— Christie (from New England State), Cain (Too much baggage) Newt (Too much baggage) Santorum —(Will not help) Huntsman (A Mormon—he needs no help there) Palin (Too Toxic—she’s old hat) Jindal (Hasn’t held up well) Maybe Haile Barber of Mississippi?

Pat Toomey, Bobby Jindal, Rubio, or Jeb Bush would give him states he needs. And they would draw many Indie, Reagan Dems, and even some Libertarians.
