I love the idea of Condi as VP. I admire her a good deal.
Condi while very smart is NOT a conservative. But it really doesn’t matter, the republican leadership are all socialists anyway.
You’re on your own.
Forget condi. Demint, Palin, Gingrich...There are plenty of REAL conservatives to choose from.
Why would Rice be a good choice? She would be a terrible choice. Blacks aren’t going to vote for Romney anyway. Rice is not pro-Israel and she is pro-abortion. She adds nothing to the ticket. I hope the Romney campaign is not dumb enough to pick her.
That’s a NSS right there.
Demint, Gingrich and Allen West, Alan Keyes
I’d add Paul Ryan but the man is too good and should stay where he’s at. Very valuable there.
This is the formula for certain defeat.
She should stick with what she is good at--academics, music, sports.
Maybe Mitt is getting too much pressure from his wife to pick a woman.
Peggy Noonan thinks she would be a good choice--another reason to think the opposite.
Romney already has a passion deficit. Why on earth bring aboard a VP who is equally passionless, and not a conservative? Bad, bad idea.
Amen! I do wonder if all of this is just a huge smoke screen and designed to redirect everyone’s attention. It is just too carefully orchestrated. First Mrs. R says something about picking a female, then Rice shows up at the big meeting, then the teaser on Drudge. We all know he has some members on his team who are very capable of being devious.
If Romney does pick a Black person as his VP - which I don’t think he will - I would vote for West or Hermann. I would prefer West not only because he is a staunch Conservative but he also has the military experience which is a huge void with Romney. Rice needs to go back to her shoe shopping and piano playing, Rubio and Paul need to stay in the Senate.
Very good point! You're right on!
Very advisable for the Romney camp to listen to Mr. Levin. Not only in this case but on all things Constitutional.
I like both. Would prefer West also.
Ryan’s in the House, not Senate.
Condi’s philosophy is right in line with Karl Marx. How can you admire a Marxist? She looks good and sounds good, until you hear what she actually says—and what ideology she stands for-—and BARF!!!!!!
She is on the same wave length as Colin Powell and Zero and Satan.
True, she looks good and if you don’t listen to content, she sounds intelligent. Of course, she thinks exactly like Romney. We need a real Conservative.
Nice try Mark, but you were the guy who helped push Orrin Hatch on Utah and the nation...and he’s a RINO!
Noone knows who he’s going to pick,, not even you, Morris.
Condi has said repeatedly she won’t take it if offered.
This is all BS rumors designed to keep us on the edge of our seats. I’m going to go clean my dryer filter.
You are absolutely off your rocker. This woman voted for OBAMA. She could not even bring herself to vote for a RINO like McCain over her race. She is anti-Israel...pro-abortion...and the list goes on.
She is NOT a conservative. So please tell me...WHAT is there to admire (to the extent you would want her as President if Romney croaked)?
... has Condi ever been linked romantically to any ... man?
I like your choices, and agree Ryan should stay where he can do the most damage to the Democrats.
Why give Obama a key to continue to blame Bush - blame Bush blame Bush - blame Bush blame Bush - blame Bush.
I like Sara and at least SHE is a conservative but does Romney really deserve Palin? She's still trying to recover from running with McCain.
We are surely lost when we have Romney as the nominee and GOPers praising a possible Condi pick.
Trust me - it’s a big rope-a-dope if indeed someone of authority in the Romney campaign leaked this.
Total agreement with your whole post.
And Paul Ryan said again yesterday on our local talk show that he is right where he needs to and wants to be.
Nail Meets Head.
Totally agree..not a conservative, and more flat affect than James Lipton. ugh.
He is absolutely RIGHT !
West and no matter what Mr. Milquetoast says or does they will win .
Condoleezza Rice Won’t Reveal Who She’s Voting For in November 2008
I know that. The only thing that is fast on occasion at my age is my Post finger. Guess I could just use the excuse that I wanted to see if anyone was paying attention but not true so....
I certainly would prefer West but don’t think the Romney team would accept that choice. I pray that he picks someone with military experience though. I’m tired of our guys and gals getting their butts kicked because of incompetent leadership.
Agreed. I have absolutely no passion for Romney. I only have passion against Obama. What a shame we ended up with this candidate. Hopefully he will pick someone like Allen West. I have my doubts about that too unfortunately.
Levin is correct, this would be a TERRIBLE mistake on Mittens part. The last thing you want to do is bring in ANYONE from the Bush administration.
Condi Rice is a good person and she is smart as hell, but she is a Bushie and Romney will only succeed in helping 0bama pin the “we don’t want to go back to the Bush years” on him.
Regardless of how bad 0bama has been, most independents still have a low opinion of Bush and his time in office. This could cost him the election.
Yup.. I can hear it now... Bush/Condi's stimulus money...blah...blah...blah
Demint, Gingrich and Allen West are just fine, but if he picks Alan Keys, I might actually stay home on Nov 6th, or worse vote for the radical socialist from Chicago.
“Why would Rice be a good choice? She would be a terrible choice.”
I thought that you were an admirer of Jesus Christ?
Condi is against his gospel. She favors the erradication of Israel.
I am. And I wasn’t aware of that. I support Israel 100%.
If he picks Rice he’ll spend the rest of the campaign defending the George W Bush record. Which is exactly what the Obama people want.
“Condoleezza Rice Wont Reveal Who Shes Voting For in November 2008”
#1. She didn’t “reveal” in precise verbiage, but she did reveal in many subtle ways; there’s no doubt she supported Obama.
#12. As a GOP, she should have been supporting McCain-Palin, loudly, clearly, enthusiastically, and continually. She’s not stupid; she knew what Obama was. Playing coy and keeping silent when America’s future hung in the balance, made her a traitor. She could’ve had some positive influence on some black voters.
She’s pro abortion, pro gay marriage, and black before American. If Romney chooses her, it’ll be to his/our detriment. Still, it might be good strategy for Romney to have her name being kicked around for a while in order to have some blacks pay attention to our agenda whom otherwise might not.
