All you have to do is read the excerpted part I posted to know that once RINO-Rom gets the nod, Conservatives (Newt Gingrich) Youth (Paul Ryan), Minorities (Marco Rubio) and women (Sarah Palin) can go to hell. He'll pick an old, white, moderate fart like Mitch Daniels or Jeb Bush or New Jersey Fats as his running mate. I'm betting right now, his VP choice will be Christie.

Folks, we might as well go back to 2008 without Sarah.

Not Christie. Too much regionalism in the ticket and Republicans have no chance with two RINO’s on the ticket. It won’t matter to me anyway. If Romney gets the nomination I’m voting libertarian.

Romney’s short list is going to be real short: Marco Rubio.

This time, one Romney adviser said, “politics will matter less than you’d imagine.”

Since when has Romney ever done anything for political purposes?

Romney should FIRE that adviser!

This is the WaPo trying once again to divide.

The Romney people know (if anything has taught them this primary season) that he is not liked at all among the base.

So the WaPo idea that he will feel “liberated” is pure bunk. He would have felt liberated if he had won in a landslide after say Florida. Not now. This article makes no sense.

He knows if he picks a Daniels, or a Portman the base will yawn. And he’ll lose in a landslide. He needs to picks Rubio. Period. It starts and ends there.

FLASHBACK:

The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided …to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.

Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

I think it’ll be Rubio, which will be a mistake.

What’s the point? He’s going to get creamed if he’s permitted to be the candidate.

Mittens looked pretty chummy with Paul Ryan last night, sitting side-by-side, on the BOR show.

Very poorly reasoned article.
The ONLY reason mccain (lc.) got as far as he did was that conservatives considered Sarah an apology for his past misdeeds.
RINORomney will be the death of the party IMHO.

I remember posting on FR about this time in 2008 that a McCain yard sign would never cast its shadow on my front lawn. I wasn’t going to sit out in November, but I certainly wasn’t going to lift a finger for him or show my support in any way. That changed with one helluva fantastic VP pick. Being a big fan of Palin long before he chose her, I was doing cartwheels when he picked her. I was immediately trying to find where I could get McCain/Palin signs, buttons and bumper stickers. And I was donating that very night.

Who I wonder could be Romney’s Palin? He better start giving that some deep thought.

Susana Martinez Governor of New Mexico would be a good choice.

She is conservative and would devastate Obama’s campaign by drawing in the Hispanic vote to the GOP side.

There is no V.P. pick in the entire world that would cause me to vote a romney ticket.

I did that with S.P., I WON’T do it again.

On many issues they are birds of a feather / sarcasm off

Nobody in American politics today comes close to Christie’s oratory skills. He has a commanding presence and an ability to handle just about anything thrown at him. I could easily see Romney going with him. He would provide the needed spark for his campaign.

The Veep is just a figurehead, with no real power or influence. The Veep will be used to gain votes from the conservative sheep. We all know what the Mccain campaign was considering with Sarah Palin, if they had won the last election.

Conservatives are supposed to vote for the latest lib and then shut up. Because otherwise the bogeyman is going win and the world as we know it will end.

Conservatives are patriots and hate to see their country hurting. So their emotional attachment to their beloved country is used to blackmail them into voting for the latest Rino that has been nominated.
