Posted on 07/31/2012 5:17:11 AM PDT by Jerrybob
How's this for a Romney Dream Team?
VP -- Allen West vs. Joe Biden
Sec/State -- John Bolton vs. Hillary Clinton
Sec/Energy -- Sarah Palin vs. Stephen Chu
Sec/Defense -- General Petraeus vs. Leon Panetta
AG -- Pam Bondi vs. Eric Holder
Sec/Treasury -- Michele Bachmann vs. Tim Geithner
Fed Chairman -- Ron Paul vs. Ben Bernanke
Sec/Interior -- Bobby Jindal vs. Ken Salazar
And last but not least --
DHS -- Sheriff Joe Arpaio vs. Janet Napolitano
What you said. From your lips to God’s ears.
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.
this has been going around the net..I like it and it looks greatIt looks but Iam afraid it may be just that, a dream
Michelle Bachman as Sec of Treasury? Sorry, with all of the great choices available this one is BIZARRE.
wow, such bitterness and gloom.
I love John Bolton. I would do flips if he was in Cabinet.
......and why do you need a Department of Energy?
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
You're asking the wrong question
The question is;
(heh heh heh)
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.
Ron Paul as Fed Chairman???
What about Defense Tzar?
Wouldn’t that be sweet turnabout?
Some of those are just bizzare suggestions
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)
And Marco Rubio for Press Secretary
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.
All good except Bondi.
Actually, I’d like to see that position revert to
its original title; Secretary of War.
Can’t really be a dream team with Romney on board.
It’s the truth, Dogg, and you know it.
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.
Scott...this is down right creepy.
I just posted almost the exact sentiment...
We are separated by a river only, dontchano!
VP — Allen West
Sec/State — John Bolton
Sec/Energy — Sarah Palin, task: energy independence in 4 years
Sec/Defense — Rudy Guiliani
AG — Mark Levin
Sec/Treasury — Rick Santelli
Fed Chairman — Herman Cain
Sec/Education — Newt Gingrich, task: eliminate the department and return all education issues to the states
Sec/Labor — Chris Christie, task: eliminate the department
Sec/Housing — Donald Trump, task: eliminate the department
Sec/Agriculture — Bobby Jindal, task: eliminate the department
Sec/Health — Rand Paul, task: eliminate the department
Sec/Interior — Kristi Noem, task: eliminate the department return all Fed land to the states
EPA — Ted Nugent, task: eliminate the department and return authority to the states
DHS — Sheriff Joe Arpaio
Press Secretary — Laura Ingraham
Why take him out of the Senate?
Because he sucks on everything aside from defense.
ALL good except for the last one:
DHS — Sheriff Joe Arpaio vs. Janet Napolitano
DHS — unfunded & disbanded
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.
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
LOL!!! That one cracks me up! For sure, I'd never miss a press conference!
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.
well you got 3 months of a nice Over 40 calendar filled...
mixed bag on ideologies
but you did cover all demographics (cept homosexuals)
how 2012 of you
Newt would be the only one to justifiably pull off a nazi peelowsee, “Are you serious?”
