Sen. Graham: Jeb Bush is best possible pick to be Romney’s running mate
The Hill ^ | May 20 2012 | The Hill

Posted on 05/26/2012 11:43:16 AM PDT by WilliamIII

Jeb Bush’s name keeps floating up in discussions about candidates to run on the ticket with Mitt Romney, despite Bush’s efforts to douse the talk.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says Bush would most help Romney.

“He’d be an outstanding pick. It’s up to Gov. Romney but if I had to recommend a single person it would be Jeb,” Graham told The Hill.

The Best running mate for Romney would be Hillary Clinton, because that way there would never be any lack of unity over policy.

Pardon me, but why do we care What Goober Lindsey thinks about anything ? I heard he is going to be a bridesmaid in Bawney Fwanks nuptuals—doesn’t he need to get fitted for his dress or something ?? Shut Up and Sit Down girly boy..

He should pick Jeb if he wants to lose. The Bush name is mud.

I can just barely bring myself to vote for Romney because of the fear of sitting home pouting and pretending I’m ‘sending a message to the GOP’ and by doing so, helping the Marxist Obama secure another destructive four years in the White House. If Romney is tone-deaf enough to stick his finger in the eyes of conservatives by choosing Jeb Bush for his VP in the hope of securing Florida votes, I may just vote for an independent candidate. I would definitely change my voter registration from Republican to independent because the GOP would have totally abandoned me and done so with the arrogance only a corrupt political party can muster.

The best running mate for Romney would be one without any vision of ever becoming POTUS.

"Jeb Bush is best possible pick to be Romney’s running mate "

I believe that there is a typo in that. Left out an 'R' in the 6th word.

Seems consistent with everything else Graham has said and done in his career.

Do libs have as much trouble with DINOs(Democrats in name only) as we conservatives have with RINOs?

The GOP HAS abandoned you already, Jim, in case you haven’t noticed...unless of course, you are into RINOs, RNC good ol’boys(wink, wink) and abhorrence of all things conservative.

Doesn’t matter who Mittens picks as his running mate. They’re no longer the Grand Old Party of yesterday.. but rather have sold their souls, embracing linguine spined moderates like Mittens.

I’m surprised that Little Lindsey didn’t say that Barney Frank was free—so why not nominate him as Veep for balance.

But seriously, does ANYBODY actually care what this little twerp says?

If not for DeMint I would be ashamed of my state.

Pansey Grahamnesty is our biggest humiliation since losing to Sherman.

I said this a few days ago: It would not surprise me if Jeb were to be pushed down our necks.

I thought Graham was a resident of Fire Island.

Graham could have the recipe for sure defeat. Romney is already bad enough, no need to add Jeb Bush and make it worse.

“.........They’re no longer the Grand Old Party of yesterday.. but rather have sold their souls, embracing linguine spined moderates like Mittens.”
************************************************************
Tell that to folks such as Richard Mourdock in Indiana, Deb Fischer in Nebraska, Sarah Steelman in Missouri, Josh Mandel in Ohio, Ted Cruz in Texas, Jeff Flake in Arizona and the voters who have (or will) vote for them to be their Republican candidate for US Senate.

We’re taking the Republican party back and will not be discouraged by defeatists.

Is Graham going to be a flower boy at whats-his-name wedding? (To clarify, the one who spits when he talks.)

C’mon South Carolina—give us another DeMint instead of le femme Goober Lindsaaay Graaaaham. He’s really losing it on the Jeb Bush as VP talk. Too bad we cant ask the departed Terri Schiavo how the Jeb was rolled over by the little, blind, swamp judge in FL. that ordered her death. If Jeb would have stepped in and bravely saved her he would be a national conservative hero about now. But alas—he’s just another squish RINO rejected by TP’ers.

The very name “Bush” is poison to many Independent voters. I don’t know who the best choice for VP would be but I hope it is not Jeb Bush.

This is ahhhh .....

The GOP is really DEAD!

Evidently the last remaining Pubbies are truly Democrat Donkies after all.

Graham is the worst choice the GOP has in it's stable. Well there are many non-starters in the GOP stable.

Nah, the Bush plan is to wait until the Mexican bloodlined (George P.?) kid can run and win on the Latino vote. They have a dream of a South American style oligarchy with their family safe at the seat of power.

Though, I don't doubt the GOPe is dumb enough to try this.

Even though Pansey took Strom’s seat he is really our new Hollings—DeMint got Fritz’s seat but he is really our new Thurmond.

Seems the Palmetto State is cursed to perpetuate the nearly 40 year history of Strom and Fritz liberal/conservative dualism in the US Senate.

That little pansy is the last choice to choose who would be the best choice for anything. I hope he gets run out of office.

Along with Luger and Hatch, its time for him to go.

Nuff said.

Graham is being modest - it’s obvious that the best pick would be the Senator himself.
