Drudge Exclusive: ROMNEY NARROWS VP CHOICES; CONDI EMERGES AS FRONTRUNNER
Drudge Report ^ | Thursday, July 12, 2012

Posted on 07/12/2012 4:37:05 PM PDT by kristinn

**Exclusive**

Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney's presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive, 'Meet The VP' -- just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful, sources reveal.

And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice!

The timing of the announcement is now set for 'coming weeks'.

MORE

It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney's Utah retreat a few weeks ago, and everyone left with her name on their lips.

Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.

Rubio, while on the right side politically, is photogenic and articulate — but that’s not enough.

We elected a novice in 2008. Rubio needs a few years’ experience before he’s ready.

The Vice President does not mandate abortion policy. Does s/he?

Conservatives HAVE to get over the social “issues” that diminish their chances for election by shallow one-issue voters.

I am not gay, I oppose abortion, I’m a fiscal conservative - and I would support Condi Rice because she has foreign policy and SOS experience, is well-spoken, classy & smart - a far cry from what’s in the White House now.

Call me lame here on FR, and maybe I need some education about her, but I probably represent a large percentage of independent swing voters.

“Support of baby killing = perfection.”

I’m no supporter of that, never have been.

But I’m also smart enough to know that Jesus Christ decided not to run this cycle, and we are stuck with mere mortals.

Besides, if “Conservatives” were serious, they have had NUMEROUS opportunities to end it in the last 30 years, and have chosen not to.

As a Democrat once said, IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID! Everything else is secondary, at this point.

Just my 2 cents here....

I don’t think Romney will pick a Conservative running mate as I don’t think Romney wants to be identified as a Conservative.

We will likely see this presumptive nominee run to the left after the convention. Having a Conservative running mate would hinder such a move.

Team Romney figures they already have the Conservative vote locked up, just by a process of elimination. The vote (s) they’re concerned about are the (Liberal) Independents.

She might bring in left-leaning women. Romney’s hurting with women. She won’t bring in blacks, hispanics, conservatives, men, seniors, asians, pacific islanders, native americans.

She might bring in piano players or college/university adminstrators, but I’m not sure of their massive numbers.

I think Mitt is faking a Condi pick because she voted for Obama, is pro-abortion and gay marriage, then he will substitute his real pick and conservatives will be so grateful that they will accept a RINO.

That’s not unique to Romney, that’s a simple fact of Presidential election dynamics. Presidential elections have next to nothing to do with “getting the base out” (except in terms of fundraising) it’s about swinging independents.

Despite fantasies here to the contrary, McCain didn’t lose in 2008 because he wasn’t conservative enough. Of course given circumstances of the time regarding the economic collapse and Obama’s margin of victory, that was an unwinnable election regardless of who ran against Obama.

But Obama won by 7 points. That 7 points has to get whittled away, and it will be whittled away by mgetting people that voted for Obama to switch to Romney or stay home and not vote. There are not 7 points worth of “real conservatives” who didn’t vote in 2008 because McCain wasn’t conservative enough,that you can motivate to vote in 2012 by picking a candidate that caters to their Social Con checklist.

In case anyone is watching this is nothing other than Romney trying to change the narrative. The Romney boat is taking on water. The pumps can’t keep up.

We all agree ( I think ) that the one issue that Romney can and needs to win on is the economy. The Bain attacks, which were previewed during the primaries, are devastating. Politics 101, attack your competitors strength and make it a weakness. Obama in 07 destroyed McCain on foreign policy and at the end polled better on the subject. Bain was Romney’s strength. He is a business man and will turn economy. What has happened? A pew poll today asked the question. Last month Romney up 8 on economy. Today down 7. Regardless of what the truth is Romney has no answers and is being killed. Ads in swing states have moved polls. It has only got worse. This campaign could already be over. VP? Hell what conservative wants to board the titanic?

Old saying in golf, can’t win tournament on Thurseday but can certainly lose it. I am pretty well convinced Obama was given another term in the primaries when this idiot was coranated. He is a lousy campaigner and the Dems are taking him apart. Just my opinion although factually based by polling.

Rasmussen: Bain attacks not working

"Will the strategy of highlighting Mitt Romney’s track record at Bain Capital do more to damage the Republican nominee, or Barack Obama? A poll by Rasmussen suggests that it might do more damage to Obama’s re-election efforts than it will to his challenger. Only 33% of a sample of 1,000 likely voters say that Romney’s record at Bain was a reason to vote against him, while 44% believe it boosts his candidacy"

Sorry Mitt, but the last thing we need is another four or eight years listening to Condoleza Rice blaming Israel for everything, and taking it to task when it protects it’s citizens from terrorism.

Heaven forbid this woman ever be president.

She would disagree with my characterization of her, but it’s dead on the mark IMO.

This just in: Bain attack still not working

"Two analyses from the flawed WaPo/ABC poll, as well as spending in swing states, deliver grim news to Team Obama this morning. Their main line of attack in which they hope to paint Mitt Romney as an uber-rich vampire capitalist clearly isn’t moving the needle among voters — and that’s true despite an overwhelming spending advantage Barack Obama has enjoyed in the early going. Unless they can come up with a better argument, Romney’s fundraising will shortly put them in a very big hole."

"For all the attention paid to the effectiveness of President Obama’s Bain-themed attacks, it’s remarkable how Obama has been stuck right around 47 percent for a very long time. As the Washington Post‘s Chris Cillizza documented, the president’s team has handily outspent Romney and his allied super PACs, pouring in $91 million into eight swing states in an early spending barrage intended to make Romney seem an unacceptable challenger. But for all that effort, the numbers haven’t moved much at all: The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll out today shows the race deadlocked at 47 percent. Yesterday’s USA Today/Gallup swing state poll showed Obama statistically tied with Romney, the exact same result the survey showed one month ago...Even the WaPo/ABC poll shows that half of voters don’t care, and only 24% in a sample with 33% being Democrats think it constitutes a reason to vote against Romney. If that’s the best option for Obama, he’s in deep trouble."

Which rather plaintively says Christie, which could only happen if Mitten's robots (no less than 3!) he planted on then Sen-elect Rubio's staff uncovered some sort of a dealbreaker in the interim...

"Florida Sen.-elect Marco Rubio announced his top staff, which included three former Romney campaign hands. Sally Canfield, who served as Romney's policy adviser, will be Rubio's legislative director and chief policy adviser; Joe Pounder, who was in charge of rapid response for Romney, will be Rubio's communications director; and Alex Burgos, who directed specialty media for Romney, will serve as director of media affairs for Rubio." -- RCP/Time, Jan. 4, 2011"

I’m probably echoing what other posters have already said (too tired to read the entire thread, lol), but I think Rice would be a mistake as VP. I like her quite a bit, and have a lot of respect for her. I don’t think she is what the Romney camp, needs, however:

-Romney already has credibility issues with conservatives (to put it lightly). Rice’s views are unknown, but it’s been long suspected she is of the moderate to liberal wing of the GOP, especially on social issues. If that is the case, then she hurts more than she helps.

-Rice’s personal life will be pried into with a viciousness that made the smears against Palin look like child’s play. Beltway and liberal media rumors about whether Condi was straight or gay have been circulating since she arrived on the scene. Rice says she is not, and frankly I never cared one way or the other, as it had little to do with her work at either NSA or SecState. But you can just bet Obama’s surrogates (MSNBC, Larry Flynt, etc.) will run with that line of attack, and the truth be damned.

-If it is foreign policy experience or a woman Romney wants on the ticket, there are other GOP options for both.

Tell you what, I will be here. We can argue about polling metrology or what the national numbers are. State by state polls are not going well. National numbers are fun to watch but we have 50 elections and I see a disturbing trend. Hey, I could be wrong not the first time. I see it coming though.

Hey Mitt the light at the end of the tunnel? It just might be a train.

all good points, but i disagree with you that Obama destroyed McCain on foreign policy.

McCain did much better vs Obama on terrorism and natl security in 08 than Bush did vs Kerry in 04(+73 vs +60).

Obama did beat McCain on the Iraq War(although by a far smaller margin +20). but I’d say that was more anti-Bush than pro-Obama or anti-McCain.

In any event foriegn policy wasn’t a factor in 2008. It was all about the economy.

edit

looks li recalled the xit poll #s wrong.

Bush beat Kerry on terrorism 86-14. McCain beat Obama on terrorism 86-13. So McCain did a tad better.

McCain actually did better on the economy as well. Kerry beat Bush 80-18 on the economy. Obama only beat Mccain by 53-44.

The difference was that in 04 only 20% of voters said the economy was their main issue vs 41% for terrorism and moral values and in 08 63% said the economy was vs 9% for terrorism and moral values.

When you view “Moderate” Republican Presidential candidates from the past, you see a list of candidates who lost Presidential elections. While some could make an argument that “W” wasn't a Conservative, on the whole he was perceived as such. Then there's Ronald Reagan, a candidate who didn't run to the left and won two elections in landslides.

I disagree with you about the reasoning behind the 2008 election result. I have always felt the “economic collapse” was the excuse given (by the campaign) for the McCain loss, while the truth was he was a lousy candidate and was, at best, a Moderate.

In Romney, we have yet another Moderate in an election year where a Conservative would have trounced Obama. Can candidate Romney run to the left (including picking a Moderate/Liberal running mate) and win? Of course it's possible, but history says otherwise.
