Skip to comments.Romney: I Will Pick A Conservative Running Mate
Posted on 07/18/2012 5:28:41 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot
During a Bowling Green, Ohio, town hall on Wednesday, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney assured a tea party supporter that his pick for VP will be "a conservative," and responded quickly to an "angry mom" who called the president a "monster" that he wouldn't use that term.

“Perhaps Romney meant he would call him worse. Romney is not McCain.”
yeah... Mitt’s more liberal.
Then the MSM press would be calling on Romney to “condemn” the monster word used by the lady in the audience. Now, they cannot and the attention can focus on “Obama = monster”...not calling Romney out about it. Good play, IMO.
No Thank You.
I and many others will never vote for Romney. Flame, Shame, Blame or Beg..it ain't gonna happen.
blueyon: Not voting will be the cause of Obama getting in..............Remember evil triumphs when good men (or women) do nothing.
It is sad to see you roll over any play dead instead of voting out Obama and then taking on the GOP to do right.
If Obama is re elected it wont be the stupid cattle mentality folks of the left I will blame but it will be the do nothings on the right.. I WANT this Abort them until birth man voted out of office and I ask you to please reconsider........Please
Right On Blueyon. Shout it from the Rooftops.
There is NO comparison between O and Romney. NONE.
Romney IS a conservative when compared to O.
4 more years of O will be the end of this country.
4 years of Romney - we will survive.
And whose definition of conservative will he rely on?
Word for word except my first vote was for Regan’s first term.
Oops ...second term.
What a pathetic loser. Your guy doesn't win the primary, so you're going to have a little fit and not vote. Yeah, that'll show 'em! Not! Obama thanks idiots like you for helping him win a possible reelection.
And for the record, I would never beg a dumbsh*t like you for anything.
I will not support the permanent marginalization of Conservatives and the leftward thrust of the GOP. Vote for Romney and forget about EVER seeing a Conservative candidate again. As Sola Veritas correctly pointed out “assisted” Evil is worse than “oppossed” Evil. 2016 or bust (no matter who is in the White House).
It is a sad day when we find ourselves thinking of voting for a socialist to protect our nation from a Marxist communist.
Maybe she meant MOBSTER.....
That is PRECISELY why I WILL NOT vote for Romney.
Voting for Romney out of fear of Obama is CHOOSING EVIL.
I WILL NOT VOTE FOR EVIL, NO MATTER IF IT IS "LESSER"!
I'm writing in Sarah Palin. Then regardless of which liberal SOB wins, at least I can live with myself for having NOT contributed to electing a Liberal.
I want Rubio - he comes with some good baggage !
Agree! We can survive if Obama gets re-elected, if we take the house and senate with conservatives. The country is a mess, and will get worse, but we can turn it around. Just not so sure if Romney is elected.
We’re hoping for Marco Rubio!!!
Actually I am really starting to get ticked with the HATE on Mitt stuff I find here.. reminder.... two more Sotomayors and Kagans for your lack of efforts....
You must have missed the part where it said they WILL be voting at the top of the ticket -- just not for Romney. And spare us the sophistry that voting third-party is "the same as voting for Obama" -- a third party vote favors neither Obama nor Romney. A leftist Green Weenie who votes third party, a disillusioned Democrat who votes third party, a high-minded independent who votes third party, an angry Libertarian who votes third party, and a conservative sick of the charade of Obama vs Obamalite who votes third party, will be favoring neither Obama nor Romney, but ALL will be contributing to lessening the popular mandate of whichever statist wins, Obama or Romney.
The last time it happened where a president was elected by a split plurality was Clinton, where a full 57% of Americans voted for somebody else. Clinton's lack of popular mandate made him vulnerable enough for the Republican Revolution to follow in the next mid-term, and that Revolution would probably not have happened if HWB had been re-elected or if Clinton had been elected by a majority.
There's only one way to vote for Obama, and that's to mark his name on the ballot.
Likewise, there's only one way to vote for government tyranny, and that's to mark a statist's name on the ballot. A lot of Republicans are on the verge of being frightened into voting for government tyranny.
I'll be joining kevkol and Sola Veritas in voting for a plurality. It's the best way I can exercise my franchise at the top of the ticket to give conservatives in Congress an advantage over the statist D or R guaranteed to win.
