Kudlow Predicts Brokered Convention: McDonnell/Christie Ticket
www.wabcradio.com ^ | Saturday, 2/18/12 | Larry Kudlow

Posted on 02/18/2012 7:14:08 PM PST by 11th_VA

It's about 40 minutes to his second hour. Says if Romney loses Michigan, no one gets 50% of delegates. Says Jeb Bush will be in the room when McConnell/Christie team is picked ...

Well, just hope it’s Bob McConnell, not Mitch McConnell...

I thought it was Mitch McConnell and I thought Oh NO, they definitely want to lose.

As for Bob McConnell, isn't he a first-term governor? Christie is.

I don't see the establishment jumping on a ticket that has 2 first-term governors. No, they will find someone old -- that is what the Grand OLD Party stands for.

Nothing a Chin Implant and Gastric Bypass Surgery wouldn't cure.

While they're at it, they could get Spine Implants and a RINOectomy.

Moderator, this poster admits he meant Bob McDonnell of VA, not Mitch McConnell of KY.

Request you change the headline...people are going nuts believing he meant McConnell.

Thanks.

“No. This is all about money and power, making certain that those who want to change the way business is done in Washington, D.C.”...You forgot to add; whom they don’t want to see that happen...

Kudlow’s very narrow perspective comes from the dominent thinking of the eastern elites and their reliance on getting winks and nods from his buddies in MSM

A guy like Kudlow doesn’t concern himself with constitional issues and wouldn’t know one even though he probably has several biting him on the ass. But it concerns conservatives and the way this country was designed to function. When it comes to his very narrow field even though he must know the employment numbers are cooked .He touts this pseudo comeback because he wants people to invest....

Kudlow spent most of that show bum rapping Romney with whom he’s backing and expressed deep dissapoinment in him on a number of issues. But why should Kudlow be surprized at Romney’s poor performance ? Here’s a guy who during one of the many debates can’t even call Obama a socialist never mind identifying what Obama really is, which is a Marxist with a fascist streak.
.
..In fact this whole idea of a brokered convention is being driven by MSM instituted by ABC’s Jonathan Karl who led off this latest effort by citing an unnamed US Senator urging a brokered convention if Romney loses Michigan. Which was eagerly picked up and duly reported by MSM. Karl was using a well worn but effective device “the unnamed source” who happens to be Karl himself....Such a brokered convention would serve the Demo-Coms very well indeed and end in disaster for this country ...

Not really. WABC radio are the people who broadcast Rush, Hannity and Levin from noon till 9 pm. I believe all three have mentioned F&F a few times, and none have fawned over Michelle.

Who are the other possibilities in a brokered convention?

Palin?
Jeb Bush?
Daniels?
Christie?
Jindal?
Paul Ryan?
Gingrich?
Perry?
Huckabee?
Pawlenty?
Petraeus?
Demint?
Scott Walker?
Rubio?

Yes, and McDonnell, like Christie, is just another RINO supporter of Mittens.

If the convention is brokered, you can COUNT on the Establishment GOP doing it to prevent a conservative getting nominated. They feel that only a RINO is capable of winning nationally.

As for Krud Low, he is just an economics guy. Social issues and constitutional issues mean nothing to him.

To me this doesn’t sound bad at all. I honestly don’t think Mitt or Newt can win, and after another week of nonstop Santorum-eats-babies-and-kicks-dogs stories from the media, I would strongly doubt he could win either.

Here you go, the perfect RINO brokered convention choices guaranteed to win: Lindsay Graham and Olympia Snowe. Yeah, that's it! We still don't know which one is on top, though.

Intrade has a fairly exhaustive list of 52 individuals, though “other” at 0.4% still outpolls the bulk of the list.

Of those on the list, I like Clarence Thomas the best. I also think that the thousand to one odds on him are too optimistic.

McDonnell ended up a disappointment and is now, sadly, a Willardbot. Christie is a no-go from the get-go. He is willfully blind on illegals and little better on the Mohammadan issue.

These RNC idiots won’t admit to Romney’s defeat. If Santorum or Newt wins outright then they have every right to be nominated. Bloody fight ahead to stop the elites from stripping Santorum or Newt the nomination then the party will be suicidal.

I believe VA governors are 1-term limit only. Usually they run for US Senate seat afterward (like this year, where 2 ex govs are against each other)

Christie LMAO no way, not as Pres. and not as VP. Loud mouth, low class, slob that is only a tiny bit conservative. He bashed conservatives when people spoke up about not wanting the mosque at ground zero and the list goes on from there.

Reason #1): John (Looks Like a Choir Boy) Kasich was COngresscritter Condit's wingman on many a post-midnight foray into DC's demi-monde. Hard to believe, I know. But, easy for Team Obama's opposition research squad to dig up, especially backed up by the FBI.

Reason # 2): Neither of Marco Rubio's parents were citizens of the USA when he was born.

Next ticket please.
