Taking Back America!
John McCain created some political shock waves suggesting that he thinks Mitt Romney should pick Sarah Palin as his VP choice. Wow! Can you imagine if he actually did that? It would turn the entire polical system upside down. I would love to see it really happen! Palin would give Romney the clout he needs with true conservatives and energize his campaign in a way that no one else could.
Rubio seems to be the logical choice though. To win in 2012 Romney MUST take Florida which Obama won in 2008. Without Florida he has no hope. Picking Rubio would most likely secure Florida for Romney. But Palin running again sure would be fun!
McCain also tells “CBS This Morning” there’s a strong field of Republicans who could be the vice presidential candidate.
When asked to suggest some names Wednesday, the Arizona Republican said, “I think it should be Sarah Palin.” But when pressed to elaborate, he said “I think we have some very qualified candidates,” citing Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Govs. Mitch Daniels of Indiana, Chris Christie of New Jersey and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana.
NOTHING in this universe could give SweatyMittens the 'clout' he needs with true Conservatives.
AND the last thing we need is advice from RINO McClown who spends the first 5 of his 6 year terms as a Liberal and the remaining year blowing Conservative smoke up the rears of his constituents who clearly suffer from severe memory loss on the level of brain damage.
"I believe my party has gone astray. I think the Democratic Party is a fine party, and I have no problems with it, in their views and their philosophy." -- John McCain
As much as I like Marco Rubio, not long ago I heard him say he's not qualified because he's just like Obama; NOT a natural born citizen of the U.S. So, I believe that right there would create more controversy which is something the GOP doesn't need right now.
I also believe, although I agree with Sarah Palin in most everything, I don't believe that she would be a good VP candidate. She might help to garner some of the Tea Party crowd, galvanize some of the female voters, and dare I say, doesn't NEED a teleprompter when giving speeches, I have to consider that the VP has to be ready to take the presidential reins in the event of an emergency if the president can't continue for one reason or another. As gender based as this may sound, I don't believe a woman should be president.
Now before I get all kinds of flack from women, (keep in mind I AM a woman), remember that both the President and Vice President are constantly dealing with foreign countries, many of which give no credence at all to a woman in authority because of their cultural beliefs, regardless of her standing in the rest of the world.
Hillary Clinton is a perfect example of that. I believe she's tolerated by them but she's made no significant difference in any foreign policy what so ever. She attends meetings with foreign dignitaries, and then has her press conferences telling us all about the sanctions she's imposed or how indignant she is with their decisions. We all know how much good sanctions and indignation do. There was a day not long ago when other nations highly considered what the U.S. had to say, but no longer. (Thank you, Obama.)
Consequently, I believe Sarah Palin would get the same toleration and snickers behind her back as Clinton now does being Secretary of State. It's just my opinion but I believe Clinton was only given that position to keep her out of Obama's way because he knew full well she couldn't influence the Islamic countries to do anything that would jeopardize his plan to dismantle the U.S. It was all for show. (Maybe Bill also had a say in that.)
Concerning Chris Christie? I believe he's way to lenient on illegal immigration and with not yet having heard Romney state his details concerning what he plans to do at the borders or how he's going to handle that situation, I don't believe Christie is the one to help nudge him in the right direction. Then too, Christie is not understanding (or maybe not willing to accept) the real threat from Muslims currently in our government and in this country, and is much too tolerant and accepting of the "peaceful" Muslims. That disturbs me greatly.
I have thought of Paul Ryan, especially concerning the domestic and economical side of things, but being from Wisconsin myself and watching first hand the lengths to which unions are trying to oust Gov. Scott Walker through the upcoming recall election, there is a bit of partisan on my part to say the least, so I can't trust my thoughts to be entirely objective.
I know too little yet about Gov. Bobby Jindal to make comment. Other names have also come to mind but I'm still waiting like the rest of us.
