So instead of just waiting for more information like this, everyone just decided to go into collective freak-out mode this morning?

Well guess we cant say that conservatives are less emotional than you average DUer.

If Condi knocks Bain out of the news cycle this weekend, Mitt is a genius.

Best news I've read since the first 'Condi' post yesterday.

If it is from Twitter, it must be true. lol

It's about time somebody on our side did.

If Sarah Palin was a pit bull, Allen West would be like a Rottweiler on steroids. He is more than comfortable in the attack role, he is extremely intelligent, great communicator, true conservative, unafraid of the race baiters, charismatic, hero status military credentials. He would be a great complement to Romney, the liberals hope Romney ignores him.

Hurray! Condi is pro-choice. Also, I think not right on foreign policy.

Please, Mr. Romney, pick a pro-life person who is smart, blunt, and witty.

This is good news.

You could tell that Palin was being polite last night when being asked about Rice.

They need someone who will slash and burn. Condi is a nice gal, but she ain’t it.

I used to think she’d make a great POTUS. Not after watching Palin in action. You need leadership genes for this job.

Best,

Chris

Allen West would be terrific. Paul Ryan would be terrific. Newt Gingrich would be terrific but my personal choice is Marco Rubio.

At any rate, Rice would be the WORST pick.

1. She’s pro-abortion.

2. She anti-Israel

3. In any event, she wouldn’t bring one black vote to the GOP side. So there would be absolutely no gain in putting her on the ticket.

Condie would be a terrible choice for VP—akin to Dewey’s choice of Earl Warren (1948) and Nixon’s choice of Henry Cabot Lodge (1960).

Romney needs Florida means Rubio will be the choice.

RE: Romney needs Florida means Rubio will be the choice.

But Romney needs Ohio just as badly. I’d rather have John Kasich than Marco Rubio. Kasich has more experience in all aspects of government — both legislative, budget and executive.

Plus, with Kasich, the issue of being Natural Born will not come up with FReepers.

Allen West is a rep from Fla and better yet he is NOT a Senator.

Kasich would be the perfect choice. He could be the surprise pick. Kasich or Rubio would be fine with me. Rubio is only 40 years old. I could see Romney, who would be 70 years old in four years, not running again, and passing the batton to Rubio, who could serve eight years and still be a young man when he left office. He would definitely take probably half the hispanic votes away from the communist party. They are banking on hispanics to keep them in power for years to come. But getting back to Kasich, he could be president on day one. He’s that smart.

RE: The last thing we need is one of Gary Condits best buddys on the R ticket.

Have you ever been friends with someone who you later found out was not what you thought he was? I have.

Being friends with Condit should not be held against Kasich.

BTW, I used to think that John Roberts was a solid pick for SCOTUS Justice like Alito was. I worked hard to tell my liberal Senator NOT to vote against him.

He betrayed me and many conservatives by legislating from the bench (redefining what was clearly stated as a penalty into a tax). Don’t hold it against me. I misjudged his character.

Should we hold it against Reagan for appointing Sandra day O’Connor (Miss Affirmative Action herself) to the SCOTUS?

West would also be good, but he would overshadow Romney. He damn sure tells you what’s on his mind and doesn’t back down from anyone. Sort of reminds me of the male version of
Sarah Palin, who IMO should be on top of the ticket, not Romney. She could win. Never believe polls that say she’s disliked and couldn’t win. Democrats hate her because she’s good looking and the common folk love her. Plus she’s conservative to the bone. I think she’s the Ronald Reagan of the 21st Century. Wouldn’t it be great to see the RINOs kissing her butt if she got the nomination?
