    Mitt would have been able to take on Biden.

    Mitt wouldn't have to hide from the press.

    Mitt wouldn't chicken out of a VP debate.

    Mitt would be able to talk competently, and substantively about the economy and domestic policy.

    Mitt would have been formidable.

    I don't think Mitt would have been lying non-stop like Palin has.

    Mitt would have turned off everyone on the right and insured victory for Nobama.

    Palin hasn't debated Biden yet. We'll see who can take on whom.

    I told my GF the same thing tonight.

    Mitt would have been the perfect point man for this economic issue.

    But the religious right would not have liked the fact that he is a Mormon.

    Just because he's not VP doesn't mean he can't aide McCain on economic issues.

    Plus, who wants to trust another big businessman to handle the economy? Are they the ones who you're bitching about ruining it?

    God you fuckers are so transparent.

    chicken out? It seems like, a few months ago, McCain suggested he and Obama debate more than the regular three times and Obama refused.Why?

    Watch Obama's interview with Bill O'reilly. It's not the same Obama that gave the speech at the convention. Debating and making speeches are two different arts.

    The problem for McCain was Romney was presidential, smart, well spoken etc. Johnnie would have looked silly next to him.


    A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote to destroy for future generations the natural beauty of Alaska and our coastlines.

    Mitt will always have a tough time because he originates from a belief system which claims that some guy, (a charlatan "divining rod," treasure hunter,) stumbled onto a NEW Bible that happened to contain all these phony "Hebrew sounding," words in it (check it out sometime- it's hilarious "And Yuzozebasuckakiah begat unto Moogoogaipanishads a boy and his name was Slammoblammo...")

    You want to know the truth about this scam called Mormonism?
    Read "Under The Banner of Heaven," by Jon Krakauer...

    Mitt is very smart and understands the issues. McCain has been in the Senate for a lot of years and he knows how it works but he just isn't as bright as Romney. When Lieberman and Graham were whispering and correcting McCain during that Iraq speech, I think everyone knew that he wasn't up to the job.

    I am a Dem but I wouldn't have been as upset if Mitt would have been the R to take over but if it were McCain/Palin, I would have considered leaving the dang country myself.

    You know......if McStupid had picked Romney instead of Palin, he may have won.

    But now? Palin is fighting tooth and nail to keep her name out of the mud. Seen what her daughter and boyfriend have been saying lately?

    >>I'm so glad McCain didn't pick Romney<<

    Hilarious.

    Like ANYONE would have been a more GIGANTIC dick-up than choosing the second runner-up in the Miss Coho Salmon pageant.

    If he had picked Zippy the Pinhead he'd be president today...
