Once again, Petraeuss cannot be SecDef until 1 Sept 2021 because of the National Security Act of 1947.

It’ll never happen. If Romney somehow manages to beat Obama, then expect a re-hash of Bush Administration RINO appointments, including the very people who undermined the McCain campaign in 2008.

I would have

1. Newt Gingrich as SecDef
2. Rep Tom Rooney(R-FLA 16) as Atty General
3. Pam Bondi as Solicitor General (sounds like Fla is taking over)
4. Palin as Energy Sec
5. No Paul no Bachmann
6. Richard W. Fisher - Sec of the Treasury maybe Fed Chairman

I don’t know why everybody wants to rob the Congress of one of our best leaders and thinkers.

Col. West should be Speaker of the House. He would have some real power there, and not be the silent figurehead of a VP.

For those of you who chose Pam Biondi for ANYTHING, I suggest you read the articles about her in relation to the foreclosure fiasco in Florida. She had 2 of her staff investigating Lender Processing for forgery,fraud, etc. Lender Processing contributed to her campaign and she FIRED the 2 staffers shortly after that (and they had found quite a bit). She can’t be trusted.

I’ll take a shot:

VP — Bobby Jindal
Sec/State — John Bolton (agree)
Sec/Energy — Sarah Palin (agree)
Sec/Defense — John McCain or Joe Lieberman (solid on defense, gets them out of the senate)
AG — Ken Cuccinelli
Sec/Treasury — Ron Paul
Sec/Interior — Rob Wittman
DHS — Sheriff Joe Arpaio (agree)

Bachman lacks the training, experience and gravitas for the job.

Herman Cain on the other hand has all those qualities

I like all those choices except Petraeus. He’s already tainted for having accepted a post within this stench of a regime.

I’d recommend Duncan Hunter Sr. for SecDef.

Actually, Paul Ryan might be a better choice for Secretary of the Treasury, and Ken Cuccinelli for AG.

Love this line up.
Only one I question is Petraeus...
As much as I like him on a personal level, he’s too cozy with Obummer...
Reminds me of Cohen with Clinton.

Really? He is tied for second with a 95 from Heritage on his voting record (with Rand Paul and Ron Johnson) and a 100 from ACU.

Exactly. And that applies to any other of the really effective elected congress people. The Vice President has a role that is determined by the President and because I like a particular aspect of many of the VP aspirants does not mean they would be helpful to the goals of the President they would serve with. Also, it seems to me that given the closness, supposedly, of this race, the electoral college aspect of winning in Nov is all important. Romney is goal oriented and he needs a VP candidate who can help him achieve those goals as well as add to the possible winning of the electoral votes needed. I still favor a more flamboyant VP like Chris Christy to generate the excitement and energy that translates into a very interesting and winning campaign. Not knowing all of the pros and cons of Christy or any other preference I have leaves me trusting the selection entirely to the Romney teams judgement.

This will be exactly like what happened with the Bush crowd...More leftist liberal policies, spending like a drunken lotto winner, open borders, amnesty with a new name, costly country killing foreign polices etc.

Then some here will start a new Romney, "Day in the life of" thread, where they can post pretty pics and comment about the first couples attire... gak

There are certainly ‘some’ very capable people on your list, but I don’t see where it’s possible to form a “dream team” with Romney at the helm.

For there to be ANY dream of any kind, Obama must be removed from office and unfortunatly, I don’t put much stock in that happening.

Trust me, in the worst way I want to see things differently, but unlike some of you, I don’t seem to be able to get there. It just seems that it’s not within me to get past the knowledge that we have a GOP-e RINO that has been shoved down our throats.

Please know that I do not mean any disrespect for those that have ‘now’ gotten behind Romney... he is now seen as the only option.

In only 98 more days, each of us have a decision to make, I wish you all good luck with that and I hope you will all be able to live with the results of your convictions..... As for me, I truly ‘do not know’ what I will do.

I know Obama simply MUST go. I see him as an enemy of everything our country was founded on and quite frankly, I hate his guts - as well as every other air breathing democrat....but I remain lost.

Good luck in shoving those square pegs into the round holes.

Sorry for the rambling.... perhaps my coffee is too strong this morning.

We are so damn screwed.
