Posted on 07/13/2012 11:36:49 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
"I think that Condoleezza Rice would be a wonderful vice president and she certainly has much more experience than our sitting president," former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) said when asked for her reaction to news that Rice is near the top of Romney's list for VP.
Palin is asked by host of "On the Record" Greta van Susteren what she thought about Rice being "moderately pro-choice."
Palin tells host of "On the Record" Greta van Susteren that she would prefer a pro-life vice presidential candidate, however she says ultimately the power to legislate abortion does not lie with the vice president.

But I've seen more than my share of Condi threads since Obama happened on the scene. There's often more than a little racism involved. At other times, sexism rears its ugly head.
It's despicable and beneath the aspirations of real conservatism.
I don't like her 'soft' prochoice view, it doesn't reflect my views, but that was in an interview four years ago and Romney's the top of the ticket. Practically speaking, Palin is right.
Palin: Condi Rice “Would Be A Wonderful Vice President”
***Hopefully, this means Palin has her eye on 2016 or beyond, when she might be up against Condi Rice and knows how to beat her. But if Romney chooses a social conservative for VP choice, Palin would have trouble running against that one in the future.
El Rushbo was quoting from some story about Condi Rice making an “ideological speech.”
Vice-Presidents usually do that job for RINO Presidents like RIchard NixOn who had a Rockefeller Republican named Spiro Agnew read attacks on the liberal media written by William Safire and Pat Buchanan.
I guess Agnew has changed race and wears a skirt in the 21st Century for a new RINO President? named Romney.
Obama can't wait to run against George Bush ...again...
It makes me nervous when a conservative leader criticizes Obama for his "lack of experience". The communist SOB wants to destroy the America we know. Why in hell should we want him to be more experienced?
"...we need to reassure our friends [overseas] that, indeed, were going to be with them, and that our foes have to respect, and indeed, fear us."
"Same with Gov. Christie, imo." Christie is a RINO extraordinairre.
Well as usual it’s been another fun thread to read . The so called conservatives who walk on water thinking the Constitution will be restored overnight VS the common sense that socialist light beats marxism anytime .
Quit deceiving yourself, Obama bot troll.
Great point. It goes to the point of whether he is evil or merely incompetent. I say evil.
Mr. RomneyCARE is not evil. He just does
very bad things over and over, and then pays off
people and lies about them.
Like DEATH PANELS. Like ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE.
You’re helping to elect him right now. Rationalize as you wish. Oh, stocks and stones . . .
Ah, the Obama reelection committee is out in droves today. Hasn’t your funding from the DNC dried up yet?
Then what does this mean?
Condi is pro-abortion and Condi shares a California condo with another middle-aged, never-married woman. She’d be a great decision for vice-president if it was on the ticket with Obama.
Her international expertise began where Madeleine’s ended which is not surprising since they both had the same teacher: Albright’s father.
Besides, it’s no good trying to ‘balance’ the ticket with another African. Believe it or not, there are a few good men that would be a perfect balance to Romney’s middle of the road politics.
And another thing, I’ve long been a fan of Palin; however, she has definitely supported the signing and implementation of the LOST UN fiasco!
If traveling out four light years? Ah, isn’t that classified?
It’s not Sarah’s place to attack a quasi-Republican whom she may have to stump with in coming months. To attack Condi would have been stupid on her part. HOWEVER, I can say that Condi would be an unmitigated disaster both for Romney and for America. Her foreign policy thinking is downright goofy. Her love of *democracy* is insane. Bob
Even Joe Biden has been an excellent VP.
How about she’s just another RINO, like Colon Powell.
How about, it was whites (if that matters to ‘them’ we ought to make a point of it) that appointed both Colon and Condi to their positions and put them on the national stage. But as soon as a half-black came along on the DNC ticket, they both supported him...because of his race.
How about she pretty much sucked at her job and enabled the left to turn the Iraq into a Vietnam argument?
How about she’s pro-choice, regardless of the mental acrobatics she performs to explain why she doesn’t want to make abortion illegal?
How about she just isn’t prepared to be president should something happen to Romney?
How about we have real, true conservatives out there that would be excellent VPs and who I trust more as president in that scenario (West)?
How about this is just another instance of the GOP shoving their middle finger in the face of the conservatives, without whom, they go the way of the Reform Party?
How about two RINOs on the GOP ticket really are not any better than two leftists on the DNC ticket, they’ll just take smaller steps toward that cliff to the left that we are rushing toward?
Where is she on the 2nd Amendment? Gay marriage? Socialist medicine? The free-market vs. socialism? Yes, she spoke out about storming Washington because she’s afraid, but where has her support been for the past four years? She’s been silent, unlike Palin who sticks her neck out constantly to support conservative principles.
The only reason I consider voting for Robamney is the hope that he’ll nominate constitutionalists to the USSC. But looking back at who he appointed in when he was governor and his overall liberal stances, if he chooses a RINO for his running mate, I flush that hope down the toilet and go third party.
The economic Armageddon that we are facing can only be averted by drastic action in support of the principles our Founding Fathers put in place when they forged this country. Anything less (socialism-lite) will result in that Armageddon within the next 4-8 years. If it is a “Republican” and a representative of greedy Capitalism, that will be used to lay the blame of the economic collapse on Republicans, Capitalism, the free-markets, limited government...in short...conservatism.
We don’t need another stinking RINO (RINOs, if it’s Rice) enabling the left to blame us for the disaster that is the result of their leftist policies.
And with each post you continue to illustrate the fact that you are on the Obama re-election committee.
It means you’re on the Obama reelection committee. Congrats.
THE ONLY ONES WHO HELP OBAMA are: TEAM ROMNEY
Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."
“Im rather excited with the prospect of Condi for veep.
Dont understand the opposition around here to her. She would get us a win in the general.
After that, the VP is a rather powerless position”
I don’t get it either. I think she’d make a great choice. A choice that would virtually guarantee Obama gone...hell that alone makes her attractive in my eyes
I understand she’s pro abortion but Romney would be president so he would set the social agenda
Delude yourself as long as you wish. You remind me of the fringe parties in Germany who, rather than align with the “hated” Catholic Center Party, maintained their purity and fractured the anti-Hitler vote. Carry on, Obamaite.
Obama is the absolute worst thing that has happened to America, at least in a very long time. We need to get him the hell out of there. I'd vote for Fidel Castro over him. At least he's honest about who and what he is. Wasn't always, but he basically is now. Nothing wrong with trying to push Romney to the end in hopes he'd change some of his liberal murky ways prior to the election. But Obama simply must go. We will have a very difficult time surviving 4 more years of this commie SOB. For the sake of national security alone, he must go. But of course you have every right to do what you want. But try to visualize, if you will, that commie SOB with a big gaping smile on his face after winning the election. If that mental image doesn't PROFOUNDLY sicken you, I don't know what will.
I appreciate that FRiend.
Why is Palin making a complete ass of herself over this RINO loser trial balloon? Evaporating cred.
I NEVER voted for mccain... I voted for Palin. mcbuttface was just on the same ticket. mccain’s people... with the help of the rats in the press... did their best to destroy Sarah Palin and those same mccain advisers now work for mitt... here is a factoid... they worked for mitt when they worked for mccain.
I have never voted for a rat bastard communist in my entire life... and I have been a gop activist for almost 40 years. I voted for the mccain/Palin ticket but you need to get something straight in your own mind. mccain is an a$$... he is a progressive... he was a horrible aviator and according to some Swift Boat Veterans for Truth members... he was no war hero. He is PRO LIFE and he is pro defense and while he is a liar, he has not inverted his ideology 180 degrees and become the opposite of what he has been for all of his life and political career... just to be elected president by running as something and someone that he is not. Savvy?
Insults are all you got pal. Its the last fig leaf covering the ineptitude of the of the low class.
The Democrats on the other hand will vote for the Anti-Christ as long as he is a Democrat.
I am a Conservative... I know who I am and exactly what I believe in. I have compromised with the gop/e for my entire lifetime and except for Reagan... I have always voted for their manufactured candidate... who is always carefully designed as the lesser of two evils. I do not have enough time left in my life to waste another 4 years waiting for the gop/e to change and for Conservatives to stand up and Carpe Diem.
The last three elections have been the most important elections of our lifetime... and every election going forward in this Republic will also be the most important election of our lifetime... due to the awful conditions amongst our electorate and their state of education on the reality of life. If we Conservatives do not stand united and emulate how the left controls their party... and they control its every move... then we will always be the underclass in the gop. If not now... when? Never? If mitt wants my vote... as with anyone else from now on... he will have to EARN it. He has not and unless he signs a legally binding Contract with America that LEGALLY locks him in on Abortion, Assault Weapons Ban and Amnesty all other issues that are the foundational principles of Conservatism... he will not earn it. He is a liar and a fraud and without binding agreements... his words are as hollow as obama's.
But I'll ask you one thought experiment then we can go our own ways:
If Romney wins, in 2016 what are the odds we will have a free and fair election? I put them at over 95% with only an "extinction level emergency" somehow pre-empting that (as it would have with Reagan or anyone else).
If Obama wins, in 2016 what are the odds we will have a free and fair election? And, after that, that ANY conservative, ever, would be elected again? I put it at zero to, max, 25%. I think anyone who votes in anyway other than to ensure another free election in this country is seriously misguided and ultimately dangerous.
Yes, but a vote for anyone but the person who has a chance of beating Obama does us no good in terms of removing his butt from office. 4 more years of this treasonous commie POS?? I can't even bear to think of it.
"In a private conversation about the planned U.S.-led NATO missile defense system in Europe, President Barack Obama asked outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for space on the issue.
This is my last election, Obama told Medvedev. After my election I have more flexibility.
I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir, Medvedev said, referring to incoming President Vladimir Putin."
Obama was talking with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev when neither of them realized that their conversation was being picked up by microphones. Here is what they said:
Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but its important for him to give me space.
Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you ...
Obama: This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.
Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.
This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility. That statement tells us much about the presidents mindset.
The specific mention of missile defense is worrisome enough. Mr. Obama has retreated from the missile defense plan that was negotiated with European allies during the George W. Bush administration. Apparently, he is signaling Moscow that he intends to retreat further. The clear implication from the presidents comments is that he cannot tell the American people before the election what he plans to do after the election.
In addition, there is the phrase on all these issues, implying more is at stake than just missile defense.

When it comes to keeping America safe, we shouldnt be too flexible:

“Insults are all you got....”
That took you a long time to come up with....... did you get your mom to help you?
LOL... Giving insults to a lib is just good sport, same for you PDSers.... I see very little difference.

If you doubt that mitt is that bad, I would be happy to send to to some You Tube video links of the man in his own skin and with his own words that prove my assertion. The truth is... according to all of the evidence that we have... including Rasmussen and all of the present polling data... is that this election is going to be razor thin and mitt may lose with it without my vote or the vote of those Conservatives that distrust him. I have stated what mitt can do to earn my vote... it would go a long way in earning the vote of many that distrust the man... but to date he has done nothing but piss us off and make decisions and statements that reinforce the distrust of a man that lies with every breath.
No politician has ever changed everything he has ever believed in... into the exact polar opposite ideology... but to believe mitt today... one would also have to believe that such a transformation is possible. The evidence that I have posted on this site proves exactly what I have said.
I will vote for every Conservative on the ballot... I will vote for president but romney and obama will not see my vote... unless mitt does what he must to earn our votes. I have seen no evidence that he wants to... in fact... all evidence points to him hating the Right Wing Base as much as the dims do.
You really really need to read the US Constitution!
We don't have a National Election, we have 50 state elections which aggregated together make a national election. Are all 50 governors going to agree to suspend their state elections? Which I doubt they even have the state constitutional authority to do! There might be some Rat Guvs that will try or at leat talk about it. Beverly Perdue of North Carolina speculated about it, “Boy did that work well for her! It cemented her glaring stupidity in the minds of North Carolinians!”. Given the abuse she took I doubt even if the most Zero loving Rat Guv would try that again! Such a unconstitutional act both for federal and respective states constitutions would destroy the credibility and careers of all those local, and state career politicians. None would agree to do that! We had both the off-year and the federal election in the midst of the Civil War. We had elections during the Great Depression & World War II.
Most assuredly a contract with American Conservatives is needed. Wonder if mitt's people are ready to take up this needed contract with mitt? Heck, there are plenty of writers here to write up this contract. I think it is only fitting it should be signed with mitt's blood, in the pen used for signing said contract. And should mitt fail to deliver on said contract he would withdraw after four years and back Sarah. Only way I'll vote for mitt.
