Secret Service Denies Romney Security Sweep
Roll Call ^ | August 28, 2008, 4:07 p.m. | By David M. Drucker

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 McCain’s (R-Ariz.) vice presidential running mate.

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.

The secret service is currently sweeping the house of my father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.

What does that mean? Absolutely nothing!

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.

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.

Romney would very likely cause a nObama presidency. He brings absolutely nothing to the ticket and in fact detracts a great deal from it.

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.

BREAKING NEWS: Romney Believes He’s 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 he’ll 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 Romney’s senior advisors has verified that if he put it thus, it’s 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.

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.

thanks for the common sense

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.
