I will vote for the nominee, but I sure don’t favor anyone running with Christie. And if anyone runs with him, it should be Newt.
Romney running with a Northeast moderate is the last thing that should be done.
Whoever runs should beg Rubio to join them.
So they can be caught up in the Obama collapse?
That would be damned stupid. Rubio is not eligible to hold the office.
I agree that Romney/Christie makes no sense. Two Northeastern liberal governors? No balance in geography, ideology, or experience.
Romney should remember that, although McCain lost, his pick of Palin was a major boost to the ticket (and McCain/Palin were leading the polls at the start of the general election campaign). Romney should pick a solid conservative who hails from another region and who has Washington experience (a Pence or DeMint type). Exception: He could go with Santorum, fitting two of the three criteria and helping to deliver Pennsylvania, a big swing state.
Unfortunately, these same criteria of balance suggest that, if Gingrich wins, he’ll be pressured to pick a RINO. As you say, Gingrich/Christie would be a more likely ticket than Gingrich/Rubio.
Just like Barry Soetaro, Rubio’s parents were not both American citzens. How can we vote for someone who is constitutionally unqualified?
‘Whoever runs should beg Rubio to join them.’
Great, after letting obozo the consitutionally ineligible guy usurp the presidency, now set another precedent for an ineligible Rubio (who is NOT a natural born citizen) to be the VP!
Are you trying to dismantle the constitution?
Are you so awfully uninformed about the obozo ineligibility issue or are you an obot?
