Barack Obama's intellectual sociopathy -- his often breezy and sometimes loutish indifference to truth -- should no longer startle. It should, however, influence Mitt Romney's choice of a running mate.

What makes anyone think Milt will make a bold choice in anything?
This VP game won’t work a second time anyway.
This is a train destined for a wreck. How conservative does the VP have to be to make voting for a liberal more agreeable?
Frankly I can't think of anyone talented enough.
It must be someone who doesn’t have to briefed on the issues. It must be someone who is extremely well versed in both foreign and economic policy. It must be someone who can best articulate the conservative agenda and be the attack dog against Pres. Obama and his failed policies. It must be someone who has PRODUCED substantive legislation. IMO, Cong. Thaddeus McCotter of Michigan should be given serious consideration. He would be, by far, the smartest, most well versed candidate on either ticket.
I can actually see that happening.
It would take “race” off the table.....
Not to mention putting the lie to the “GOP war on women””?
To me Paul Ryan is the obvious choice and Bobby Jindal is the bold choice.
I would be delighted with either.
Clinton-Obama backer George Will giving Romney advice?
Sorry, McCotter is a union tool that sponsored and voted for Card Check. In an election cycle where union collective bargaining issues are front and center (particularly in the states), a pro-union guy like McCotter is an absolute non-starter. There is a reason his presidential effort went exactly nowhere.
Agreed. Both are probably high on the list. My guess is Ryan is probably more likely because he might put Wisconsin in play. We are already likely to win Louisiana which makes Jindal less important.
Nikki Haley and Marco Rubio are both probably good options as well (especially Rubio). Some are saying Portman in Ohio, but he strikes me as a very uninspiring choice.
Jindal won’t get it because he didn’t bow down and kiss the GOPe’s feet like the rest of them. Frankly, Jindal is my favorite one out there and I don’t even want him to get it. He should stay clear of this train wreck.
Tell the Republicans to vote for another liberal and promise them a tough guy for VP...
Been waiting for you to chime in. How’d your candidate do and how comfortable are you with Romney? The bottom line is that McCotter is better versed in poicy than ANY of the proposed VP’s. Oh yeah.....did you have a problem with Reagan being the PRESIDENT of a union?
