    There's a poll out, showing Christie at an all-time job approval high.

    It seems to me that Christie would be a better pick than Rubio on the basis that he would energize the base and independents the most. Also, he could bring New Jersey into play.

    Rubio on the other hand would be a pick me up in Florida; but Romney should win that state anyways. So what state would Rubio bring to the table? New Mexico? I doubt it. New Mexico is basically Albuquerque and that town is all Dem'd out. It's mostly baren dessert everywhere else, so unlike other states where rural areas temper the urban Dem vote, it just won't work there.

    Meanwhile, I think Christie could help in a lot of swing states where Rubio would not: NC, Viriginia, Ohio, Iowa and New Hampshire. And he could tighten the races in northeastern states like Massachusetts and Connecticut.

    Christie as VP? A man about one Twinkie away from the Emergency Room? No thanks.

    Rubio? He has absolutely nothing to offer - except maybe some wingnut votes in Florida.

    Christie has had the brass balls to take on the Unions and status quo that has taken that State down.

    Libs were supposedly scared of:

    Perry
    Santorum
    Gingrich
    Cain
    Bachman
    Palin

    Now they are supposedly scared of Romney/Christie? :lol: Bring it on.....:lol:

    Mitt should pick someone from the South. The primaries should have been you all's first clue about how he plays in Dixie.

    I wish you wouldn't have said that. I'm not addicted to nicotine fortunately. But I am a caffeine addict. Luckily, I don't keep any in the house and I tend to stay away from it nowadays.

    All of them have formidable aspects. Cain was a business man and he could take away the minority vote. Bachman could lessen their war on women and pull from that base. Perry was from the only state that grew jobs. Gingrich is much sharper than Obama.

    All of that said, don't pretend that the Dems don't have preferences. They hit Romney hard in Michigan in the hopes of facing off against pinhead, Santorum or Gingrich and his baggage. They were scared of Romney and we're seeing why every day. He's hitting Obama hard on the economy and they can't fire back that he's a religious nut (Santorum) or a shady character (Gingrich).

    I'm looking forward to the Republican convention. Awkward speeches about why Romney is the best of the best.
