Mark Levin Says No to Condi Rice as VP; " Pick a damn conservative" (VIDEO & TRANSCRIPT)
Real Clear Politics ^ | July 7, 2012 | Mark Levin

Posted on 07/13/2012 1:34:45 PM PDT by RitaOK

Didn't they say throughout the Republican primary we had a nominee Romney because he's the only one who could win? Why am I the only one remembers that?

And these polls, don't they make you nervous right now? The economy's on its back. Romney's running against a true loser who has nothing to offer the country, literally nothing. So he's a propagandist. So far the Romney team has not been able to cut through it and then you get this John Sununu -- who gave us Souter for all those years -- walking around like he some kind of smart uncle telling us they are husbanding their resources are just waiting for the right time to unleash on Obama.

He's got a strong bench to choose from and stop playing it safe.

So let's get with it. Can't we win this damn race? Can't we act like we actually want to?

Who, with any broad political instincts would be FOR Rice anyway, with a socialist already heading the ticket and quite in need of an conservative to win, like an Alan West perhaps?

How do we define who a real conservative is? There are some who think Palin is not a real conservative. I like Alan West, but out of a score of 100, Hertiage gave his voting record a 68.

I think Bachmann is a conservative, but I do not think she is qualified. What standard do we use? I think Cheney is a conservative, some people don’t.

And CR gushed over him, which made me think Ace voted for the Fraud as well.

This is what ABO will get in the end. A whole pile of RINOS more ingrained in the GOP and DC than are there.

Sorry Mark. You were wrong. When you back a liberal, you get all the mess they bring on board with them. Now do something about it.

I guess we won’t have to wait for the actual election to watch Mitt dismantle the last vestiges of conservatism in DC afterall.

As much as I love Condi, there is no way she would add to the ticket. Better have her working somewhere in the Romney Administration.

Allen West. He would get the Black’s out of the DemonRAT’s hypnotic stuper of the government freebee.

LOL! You did say the very same thing. We’re all geniuses today!

Too bad RINOS can be satisfied with Rice, but then ot was they who gave us the Myther, these go-along-to-get-along types, and/or the “advance me” types.

Sick of it, here.

I can’t believe Rice is even being floated as a trial balloon. Good grief, I hope Mitt has more smarts than to pick her. I am listening to a local host Mark Belling of Milwaukee’s WISN, discuss this too. He is very upset about Rice being thrown out there as a possible pick.

I dunno. It seems like it is actually a trial balloon for
“picking” traction. Or not.

Levin is right. NO to Condi. I like Ryan, Rubio, West or Mitch Daniels. Put Condi in another position.

Totally agree - it's manufactured news designed to steal the airwaves and message outlets for a 48 hour window. It's a smart move and, it won't happen.

Yeah, that’s not going to happen. Besides which, West doesn’t do race pandering to get votes, and I don’t think he would like it if Romney tried to use him to do that either.

I wonder if Condi as VP talk is a just trick to get Obama to dump Biden and go with Hillary?

Dumping Plugs would make Obama look desperate.

Hillary shrill presence might drive away voters.

“Rice is a horrible pick!”

Yes, among other lib ideas she is “slightly pro-”choice,” and in favor of paying taxes to the U.N. as in the Law of the Sea Treaty.

There is no plus side to this, she isn't popular.

These rumors begin to take on a life of themselves.

“Allen West. He would get the Black’s out of the DemonRAT’s hypnotic stuper of the government freebee.”

Love Allen West, but no he won’t. Conservative blacks are dispised as turncots in the black community. Justice Thomas is a prime example of this anomaly. Black, accomplished, Conservative....hated in Black American communities...sigh.

Like you, I wish Allen West would be a game changer in the black America, but he doesn’t stand a chance of fulfilling that dream. The race warlords/pimps won’t let that happen, they’d lose their rice bowls........

"Who would be for Rice anyway..?"

The same people that encouraged Colin Powell as Presidential candidate for many years!

Condi Rice is not a Conservative, nor does she represent the interests of Conservatives. But then again, neither does Romney, for us conservatives, this is just another RINO going to DC.

Romney may reverse some of the bad legislation that has been foisted on America, but that will not change the tide of the leftist movement in America. In fact, its just a little slower march in the same general direction. We need a true Conservative to return to Laws the protect individual freedom and liberty.

People will have to get educated on our Constitutional form of Government, otherwise the slide towards Socialism will continue with only minor slowdowns. The question you have to ask yourselves, is ‘How much are our Liberties worth, once they are lost, nothing short of a Civil war will get them back.

Think America, Do you want your rights decided upon by Men in Government? (we’ve seen many times before how that turns out) OR, your God given Rights under our Constitution. The choice is easy, if you consider what has already been taken from you, just since 2001.

Well, Condi put herself forward by giving a red-meat Republican political speech the other day, but that doesn't mean the Mittbot is going to look closely at her. He's pitching the black demo in the face of massive rejection, but just to achieve Sister Souljah immunity against charges of "institutional racism" or some other kind of racism that Bozo's henchmen will throw at him.

He doesn't need to go as far as putting Condi on the ticket to get that immunity -- he already has it in hand. Rather, her abort-friendly past would seem to rule her out in view of Mittens's pledges to the faith/pro-life community.

For a look at the yawning gulf Mittens thinks he needs to span in order to be elected, the gulf between Pink America (which Pinkbots call "Blue America" now, prophylactically) and Real America, take a look at especially the comments to this "Blue"/Pinko declamation against Sarah Palin that I'm proud of having found; because it goes a long way toward explaining the cleavage in the GOP between urban RiNO's and Real American (c) conservatives like Sarah.

It's an especially useful hornbook of differences because there is no North-South sectionalism and propaganda for the urbanites making these comments to hide behind when they denounce Sarah's conservatism, and they really trot out their prejudices and closet medievalism (scratch a liberal, find a feudalist every time) to justify slanging a Jeffersonian, Western Conservative American. And the point is, RiNO's and neocons generally agree with this stuff but won't admit it around conservatives. They just keep sharpening their knives and needles and go to work on conservatives' backs every chance they get.

Atlantic Seaboard Liberals Unload on Sarah Palin and Everything She Stands For.

I agree with you that Newt is a conservative. However, there are people who will post the picture of Newt sitting on the couch with Nancy Pelosi.

How would John Sununu be as VP? He’s awfully out front these days and former Gov. of New Hampshire. Don’t remember his conservative creds though.
