Posted on 08/28/2008 4:31:51 PM PDT by Perdogg
The Secret Service is denying that it conducted a security sweep of the Michigan home belonging to the sister of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R).
Roll Call earlier reported that the sweep took place, suggesting that it might be an indication that Romney was in line to be selected as Sen. John McCains (R-Ariz.) vice presidential running mate.

I’m betting Pawlenty.
I’m betting Pawlenty.
Take it easy Perdogg, freepers will have to go on a suicide watch once the Mittites get word on this...
i have no idea.
Romney is the best choice.
For the Dems, maybe. But they already picked Biden.
It should be Palin.
If he selects Pawlenty (or Romney) he is wasting a big opportunity to garner the female vote which has been a thorn in the side of the GOP for years. They elected Bill Clinton twice and almost defeated Dubya twice.
She is a solid conservative and, although somewhat inexperienced, has more experience than nObama.
And what if Romney is the Veep. Are you going to continue this crap throughout the rest of the election?
I hope so.......
It wont be Mutt Romney, I think the vetting team reads FR!
What does that mean? Absolutely nothing!
I am betting Pawlenty as well!
I hope so. It would be a wonderful thought to think that I played even the most minuscule role in ending Slick Willard’s WH aspirations.
>>>Im betting Pawlenty.
He’s a greenie-weenie.
ROFLOL!! That was a good one!
LOL - Well, whoever is leaking these rumors sure has everyone guessing!
VEEPSTAKES FLAVOR OF THE MOMENT
Meg Whitman personification of the New Economy and a McCain favorite is lighting up the buzz right at this hour.
I Haven’t decided yet. If McCain picks that charlatan as the VP, then we’ve all got a lot bigger problems than anything I can change.
Let’s hope its Mitt. That sets him up for 2012.
I don't think pandering works for Republicans. Putting Clarence Thomas on the bench or Condi Rice in the cabinet did not get us the black vote. Putting a woman on the ticket will not get us the female vote. I don't have a problem with Palin, other than her lack of name recognition, but I don't think we need to start resorting to identity politics.
So, Romney is worse than an Obama Presidency?
I pray they do.
But not nearly as big as if Obama gets into the White House.
Romney would very likely cause a nObama presidency. He brings absolutely nothing to the ticket and in fact detracts a great deal from it.
Which way did he go George?
Thanks for sharing your opinion.
And you can bet your beagle that’s not the only blog they read!!
FAKE TROOPER (and Chief of Operations)
After this week with dems putting forward some of the most liberal elements of their party any of these Republicans as VP look reasonable and tolerable in contrast. Romney is fine by me.
What is a security sweep? Do they check the Veeps relatives for Meth labs and caches of weapons?
and pro-choice. No thanks.
Could that whole thing have been started by a delusional Mitten?
Why yes, yes it could.
BREAKING NEWS: Romney Believes Hes Out
By James Poulos
A well-placed source has confirmed that Mitt Romney no longer understands himself to be in consideration for the Republican nomination for Vice President. When asked where hell be tomorrow, Romney revealed that he planned to be in Massachusetts. When pressed for a clarification as to whether that remark constituted an artful prevarication Romney declared that it did not. Further, one of Romneys senior advisors has verified that if he put it thus, its true.
With all else having been said, that pretty much defines the nature of Romney's campaign all year. It's all been bovine excrement. He's a liberal poser.
Well said and thanks for the common sense.
So is Romney. His record speaks much louder than his forked tongue.
The SS will deny everything. That’s their job!
Oh can you imagine the alligator tears that will flow the eyes of his sycophants.
Intrade is now strongly suggesting it will be Pawlenty.
Oh, good, let's have four years of Obama just so that Mitt can 'save' us with his RomneyCare. Perhaps in the mean time he'll officiate at a couple gay marriages for outreach purposes.
I am actually beginning to think Mac has got some sense and he knows Romney won’t help him.
My sense of dread is lessening.
Common sense seems to be the first casualty of political debates around here. It seems as though the fight gets taken straight to the ground, bare knuckles, barroom style. Every person on our potential VP list has a lot more values in common with me than Joe Biden or Barack Obama. I will leave the trashing of our candidates to the pinkos.
I seriously wouldn’t doubt it... I think we might have to give her a little thanks (just a TINY bit though) after McCain beats Obama... WHY? Because I’m almost POSITIVE the Clintons will be working “alongside” the Republicans from here on out - no matter what they might be saying - so that Hillary gets another chance in 2012.
