PoliBlog: A Rough Draft of my Thoughts

  1. It’s as bad an idea as Obama-Clinton. Romney would do well in a Cabinet-level position, say Secretary of the Treasury. But he’s not going to attract many new votes to the ticket.

  2. It appears that it’s all down to Alaska Gov Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney, and team Romney fears Palin now has the best shot, so Romney camp is mounting a blogosphere-wide assault via Politico.

    The tip-off that Politico is just a “promote Romney” piece is that it mentions EVERY NAME in the next two tiers of Veep prospects EXCEPT SARAH PALIN!!! — even names far more unlikely than Palin (since Romney camp knows Palin is the ONLY ONE who tops — I’ll say tops by far — Romney as McCain’s best pick).

    Bottom line, Romney and Politico fear Palin most — as do the Dems and the MSM. (By the way, the Dems and MSM do not fear Romney the most — which says a lot.)

    AOL, a main on-line pro-Obama/pro-Dem player, is now carrying the Politico piece promoting Romney buzz.

    Clearly AOL wants McCain and the GOP to lose the general elction — hence they gladly promote Romney (no mention of Palin).

    Also, CNN had Romney — kind of out of the blue — attacking Obama. Again, CNN, wanting McCain and the GOP to lose, gladly promotes Romney (to attempt to avert the Palin threat).

    All the media frenzy which will surround the remarkable Palin “story” — essentially free to McCain — will be worth millions and millions of dollars of coverage and PR (more money than Romney would provide anyway).

  3. Bad bad bad move if it’s Romney. Obama would have to be and/or nominate for veep the antichrist or Basement Cat or something in order for Romney as veep not to destroy McCain’s chances. I will remove what support I have for McCain, and consider throwing it to Our Messiah Obama if he invokes McCain. Romney is Just That Evil. I would take Obama/Clinton over McCain/Romney.

  5. I don’t think the article was implying that Romney would just make money off of Mormons. For whatever reason Romney is a favorite with a lot of the party insiders or higher ups in the party.

    He is a friend with the Bushes and Dick Cheney’s daughter was a support of his. A lot of the people that might not be willing to cough up money for McCain might if Romney was the VP choice.

    Romney is also a favorite of a lot of the talk show radio hosts (Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham (sp)). Remember a lot of them where very hard on McCain during the Primaries.

    A lot of the Fiscal Conservatives love Romney.

  6. Evil–what are you talking about. This election should be based on qualifications not religious beliefs.

    I would vote for Mitt Romney on either ticket. This economy needs help and I believe he’s the one that can do the most.

  7. I don’t like anything about Romney. He has no appeal with independents. I will not vote for McCain if Romney is on the ticket. The thought that Romney would be one death away from being President is too scary to chance.

  8. Romney is just a rich, out-of-touch, my daddy was a Governor slimeball. Don’t care that he’s Mormon…I do care that he thinks the reason poor people don’t have health insurance is because they CHOOSE not to buy it. I almost fell out of my chair when he said that.
