Sorry; put wrong date. This came out five minutes ago at the source indicated, ATTOW.
I am going to say it will be Allen West
Better be Ryan..
On Faux news 30 min ago. Likely Ryan. WOO HOO!
In the past couple of weeks Mittens has tried his best to give the election to Obummer. Not fighting back from the lies of Obama. Not attacking the ward politician. Playing Mr. Niceguy. If he does not pick Rubio to help him with conservatives and to almost guarantee a Florida win, he’s given up. Don’t win Florida, you don’t win the White House. It’s as simple as that. Paul Ryan does not win Florida for him or Virginia. If it’s Paul Ryan the Obummer machine will rack him over the coals on his budget plan and every five minutes you’ll be seeing the Ryan-lookalike pushing grandma over the cliff. Anyway, that’s how I see it.
Virginia... Eric Cantor maybe?
The article touts that the Romney campaign is in such big trouble. It’s the media meme.
Final names Ryan, Rubio, Pawlenty, Christie, Portman and one unnamed wild card...
But the announcement is in VIRGINIA... McDonnell?
Ditto to that..Ryan. Or Romneys a fool.
He’s making the announcement in Virginia... So I’m going to say the VP nominee will be Bob McDonnell.
I wouldn’t really have a problem with this choice, especially given that this election could very well hinge on the outcome in Virginia.
Cantor ??? Time to put the bottle away for the night . ; )
Washington Post is saying the announcement will be made aboard the USS Wisconsin in Norfolk— guess that’s a big hint.
And one more thing. Saturday morning? Why not just do it in a document dump on Friday evening?
Oh yeah... could be McDonnell too.
I hope it’s Ryan though.
Could be several reasons for choosing VA other than McConnell .
You want Romney to be tougher, but you fear the dems will show Ryan pushing grandma over the cliff. So then he should pick a less tough vp?
Romney has been fighting back, he’s no mister nice guy. In the words of conservative hero Dan Rather: Courage.
