Posted on 03/11/2012 7:04:04 PM PDT by BCrago66
Sources close to the Gingrich campaign say preliminary "what-if" conversations are underway that could lead to a Gingrich-Perry ticket being announced prior to the Republican National Convention at the end of August.
Gingrich aides hope forming a predetermined ticket with Perry will unite the evangelical, Tea Party and very conservative voters that make up the core of the GOP.
As discussions got underway, two senior aides to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who dropped out of the race and endorsed Gingrich, had not heard of the potential ticket and seemed dismissive. One noted that in the past, Perry has likened the Vice Presidency to a bucket of warm spit. Still, Gov. Perry volunteered his services when he endorsed Gingrich in South Carolina, so he may be on board if it's little more than a joy ride in a trial balloon.

Yep; of course it’a all academic because Gingrich has precisely zero chance of getting the nomination.
But from a purely academic standpoint it would be interesting to see if a Gingrich/Perry ticket could beat Goldwater or Alf Landon in terms of getting crushed.
Gingrich could never play second fiddle to Santorum. He is incapable of being a vice president. He’d never, ever under any circumstances agree to be vp—for anyone. He’s 68. Anyone who thinks he would agree to run for VP is delusional.
Sandra Fluck, pick up the white courtesy phone. Please use gloves.
Sounds like a good deal to this Texan...or would you rather see the jobs go to China ?

Gov. Perry Announces Apple to Create 3,600 New Jobs in Austin
Gov. Rick Perry today announced that Apple will expand its presence in Texas with a $304 million investment in a new campus in Austin that will create more than 3,600 new jobs. The new campus will more than double the size of Apple’s workforce in Texas over the next decade, supporting the company’s growing operations in the Americas with expanded customer support, sales and accounting functions for the region.
In exchange for Apple’s commitment to create these new jobs in Texas, the state has offered Apple an investment of $21 million over ten years through the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF).
The Little Martian and the Paulnutz are too busy suckin up to Romney.
There's not a chance of them getting more than 1,144 combined if they both stay in the race. Ron Paul already has 64 and will continue to get more. Romney probably gets a bare minimum of 1,050 if everything stays status quo, and could get over 1,144 with just a little improvement. Most likely Romney and Paul will have enough to combine for a win at the convention. The only thing that could change the game is Newt or Rick dropping out and teaming up with the other. Then the remaining one could deny Romney a plurality in anything but Northeastern and Mormon states, and sometimes get over 50%. With 13 states with some form of WTA in April and beyond and only 10 proportional, that is the only way to shut Romney out of enough delegates to make a combined Newt/Rick convention ticket possible.
Paul supporters think Santorum represents everything that’s wrong with the government on all fronts, social issues, economic issues and military issues. They despise him to the very core of their being.
Wish we could give you some clarity in Alabama but...Romney 31, Gingrich 30, Santorum 29, Paul 8
Id rather see Allen West debating Biden.
Wouldn’t that be a hoot!
Pay good money to see West tear him a new one.
Interesting since, to listen to all the Newtbotsa couple of months ago, Perry was a RINO no better than Obama, what with Gardasil and his positions on illegals and Muslims and vulture capitalism and what not. NOW, he’s okay to be Veep if it helps Newtie? Smells of desperation...
That’s the ticket.
That would get ‘er done.
You may be right, but from what I hear, Newt is pretty sure anyway. Lot of “social” conservatives, but most Texans are more fiscal conservative at heart an like someone who tells ya how the cow ate the cabbage.
If only it could be.....
Its only a trail balloon... Romney - Huckabee
Romney - McCain Romney - Bloomberg
That’s the sort of ignorant, biased post that I would expect from you.
You have shown your total ignorance of the issue.
I’m down with that.
