Far out, man. Lefties helping Romney vet his VPs is priceless.
From the OP link. I love it...
This re-election campaign by Obama has been the dirtiest I have ever seen
Is this what you want running YOUR COUNTRY?
Better that than the Mormon Cult.
its hard to pick a VP with only brain washed cons to advise you.
they needed to get some intelligent help with the pick I guess
what a load of crap.
this one has been pretty standard and uneventful
no thanks, they don't want your alls help, you people put a inexperienced Junior Senator community agitator in AS OUR PRESIDENT..
you all can sit on your so called "intelligent" advice
Yea, the lefties are starting to play hardball and the Rethugs are starting to really whine.
Funny shit right there.
I thought this election was gonna be a walk in the park for Mittens? I thought you Rethugs were supposed to be good at this shit.
What happened? If Mittens can't run a decent election campaign, you really think he can lead this country? Ain't happening.
Okay, rumor has it he's down to three... Paul, Pawlenty and Portman...
So let's for the sake of simplicity call them Moe, Larry and Curley.
Moe (Paul) is kind of the mean but slightly smarter one. He probably appeals to the Wingnuts and Teabaggers because he supports cutting off money to help the poor, the elderly and children, because Jesus would have been totally down with that, really. I think he would be a total disaster as pick because it really allows Obama to hang the unpopularity of a congress with a 17% approval rate right around Romney's neck.
Larry (Pawlenty) is kind of the wimpy, inoffensive one who takes abuse well. I kind of like Tim, I would vote for him if he were the nominee. But Pawlenty's problem is that he simply doesn't have the stones for a fight. He completely wimped out when he lost a meaningless straw poll to Bachmann and Ron Paul. I just don't see him holding up when the MSM goes full Palin on his ass. Still, he wouldn't outshine Romney, and that might be what Romney is looking for.
Curley (Portman) would probably be the best pick. He's got the insider knowledge, he possibly makes Romney competitive in Ohio, he won't outshine Romney, he's been in a few fights, but doesn't alienate people.
Will any of this make a difference? Probably not. The selection of a vice president has never turned the tide in a candidate's favor and it won't this time, either.
