Skip to comments.Palin floats Rep. West for VP nominee
Posted on 03/03/2012 5:34:53 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Several high-powered names have been bandied about for a possible No. 2 on the GOP presidential ticket.
Sarah Palin, the Republicans' last VP nominee, on Saturday threw out a new one - Florida Rep. Allen West.
"I would like to see considered for the VP Col. Allen West," she told Fox News. "In this tumultuous time ... he served in the military and has intimate knowledge of the way the military works and should work by having a close family member serve. Someone like that."
Palin isn't ruling out another run herself on the ticket, should she be asked. "It is not a no. I'm not saying no. But what I am saying is if I were in a GOP presidential candidate's shoes, I would look to Col. Allen West."
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are among the other names that have been floated as potential running mates....

Go Newt! With West as your VP. I’ve had that as my sig line here for a few months now.
She’s spot on. West speaks the truth.
Gingrich West is the dream team for folks who want
A: their country back
B: to see Obama Biden totally humiliated
C: a fearless campaign opposite of McCain, Bush, etc.
D: did I mention seeing Obama Biden humiliated?
I would think more of anyone who chose West for that matter.
Too bad Sarah .. I had him down as YOUR VP six months ago, but then . . .
Only if Newt wins the primary. Otherwise I want West in the top slot. He would heavily outshine Santorum or Romney.
After suffering with alcee hastings as my congress thief, due to redistricting I’m about to get Colonel West as my Congressman.
Please leave him alone and take Marco instead
West would rock!!!
born May 28, 1971 in Miami, FL (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Mario Rubio born in Cuba, naturalized Nov. 5, 1975.
Oria Garcia born in Cuba, naturalized Nov. 5, 1975.
Parents were NOT US Citizens at the time of his birth (Does NOT meet the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Marco Rubio is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.
Marco's status is the same as that of Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Hussein Obama, who is NOT a Natural Born Citizen.
Too bad about Marco and “Bobby” not being natural born citizens, huh?
Romney looks to be the winner. He should pick Condi as his running mate. Poised. Vetted & tested on the world stage. Woman. Foreign policy ace. Will stay on message. Not her first rodeo. Will attract some black voters. Will take George Snuffaluffaguss’s face and rub it in whatever BS he is spouting at her. Loves the NFL. Is a concert pianist.
Yeah, another squish on the ticket. But she’s black, and that’s all that matters, right?
West is my first choice for VP. Gingrich/West is a good ticket.
And pro gay marriage no?
You consider Condi to be a squish? Interesting. She is tougher than 99.9% of the people that post here. I’m talking about doing it in the real world with the glare of the media’s klieg lights blazing on you where your words and decisions affect the lives of thousands of people, if not more.
Me, I’m just spouting off on an internet forum and feeling big about myself. Rice has done it out in the real world where it counted for more than just typing some words. And she can do it again and would be a credit to the coming Republican administration.
And pro-abortion, no?
What is this “it” that you speak of? Bullying the Israelis? Yes, she was pretty good at that. No Hillary Clinton, mind you, but passable. I worked for the Carter and Reagan administrations and later for General Al Haig. She was a decent Soviet analyst, I’ll give her that, but she’s to the left of John McCain or Milt on many issues.
Like I already said, Condi knows how to stay on message, how to follow orders, how to be a team player. If Romney, or RIck or Newt, were to interview her and they didn’t feel it would work, then she would not be asked to join the ticket.
But once asked, she would bring a lot to a ticket that would help win in November. Defeating Obama is the name of the game. Condi would destroy Biden in the Veep debate. I would love to see it!
As for gay marriage, etc, well we can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube. I don’t like homos and lesbians but it’s here to stay until the majority of voters have a change of heart and convince the politicians and courts to agree with them. Dick Cheney...I guess you think he’s a squish on the gay issue too, eh?
Newt will be in my town Tuesday. I’m going to see him. Can’t wait. He will be at the Space & Rocket Center in Rocket City USA . . . last time I went to a rally there was when the Tea Party Express stopped in town.
