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.

I was not going to vote for McPain for any reason. But when he brought Sarah onboard, I voted for HER. I am sure many FReepers feel the same way. Maybe Romney can win us over by picking someone like her. I mean, is he really that much worse than McPain?
Don't get me wrong, there is no way in HELL I am voting for him. I don't need to, since I live in Idaho, the deepest of the deep red states - the Republican is guaranteed Idaho, regardless of how many real conservatives decide not to vote because Romney is the nominee.
Point being, I am going to sit this one out unless he picks someone that at least aproximates Sarah.
I am totally indifferent to Romney’s VP pick, if he is the GOP nominee. I will be writing in Palin/West, DeMint/Bachmann, Perry/Cain, or some other pairing of acceptable options that the GOP leadership stifled because it’s Romney’s turn. Obama will carry my state in any case, but I’m not convinced that a socialist who hates America is much worse than a big government liberal who doesn’t hate America but also doesn’t understand limited government or personal freedom. Congress will set the limits on how much damage either of them does to our country, and I’m not convinced there’s a dime’s worth of difference in the long run between the exceptionally grave damage that Obama will want to inflict on our country and the significant damage that Romney will inflict because of his sincere belief that government makes everything better.
Good thinking....BUT some conventional wisdom suggests
that if you are going for a younger VP pick you should
recruit someone who has the ‘fire in the belly’ to run
for the top spot after two terms as veep. Not to confi-
dent that Rice will ever attain that level of desire.
Condi might be a little too intellectual to want to
get down in the mud like you have when you are oppos-
ing the pond scum ‘Rats. On the other hand she IS a

I think Condi is someone Romney would like. Others might include Michael Steele, Lindsay Graham, or John Huntsman.
I was answering a previous post. What really hurt McCotter was that he was shut out of the debates. They cited poll results for inclusion, yet refused to include him in the polls. I was at the Young Republican Straw Poll this past summer, where he placed third behind Romney and Ron Paul, yet they still wouldn’t include him. IMO, a hip policy wonk with a dry and cutting wit would be the perfect compliment to Romney, who is right out of central casting.
Romney veep pick? A heavy hitter..
in walks Hilary...hello Barack...game on!
