They didn’t vet a guy for VP who had been governor for roughly eight months. Gee, what a shocker...
True, instead the vetted the one who had 20 months.
I’ve been making the same case, and of course, getting flamed for it.
The guy isn’t tested, he doesn’t have the experience. Don’t get me wrong, he may very well be the next Reagan that swings the pendulum back to conservatism. But we don’t know.
What bothers me is how many people are jumping on his bandwagon just because he’s a minority — just as they did with Powell and Rice, who ended up stabbing us in the back.
I don’t accept the premise that the GOP must run a minority to compete. We must run a tried-and-true conservative, and one that can express the views of conservatism clearly, succinctly, and appealingly, which is exactly what Reagan did. I really don’t care what the race or gender of that person is, only that they can articulate the views and have a track record of abiding by them.
