    The Ryan pick is probably the result of a few people telling him no. You could really see it this past week at the convention. The serious GOP candidates who may run in 2016 were jockeying for position and padding themselves much more than padding Romney. You could also see it in the tacit endorsements of Santorum and company.

    I would not be shocked if Rubio wasn't answering his phone in the week or two leading up to the Ryan pick. I also wouldn't be shocked if Portman took a pass.

    OP is a lie.

    What else is new with libs on the USMB board these days. Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie. I guess that's the platform of Democrats these days.



    If you read the article, Condi was very reluctant. If she had been 100% committed it could have been a ticket.

    Ann Romney strongly advocated that her husband consider Condoleezza Rice as his vice-presidential running mate, according to campaign fundraising sources.

    'I know that Ann Romney was intrigued by the idea of having Condi on the ticket,' a top Romney fundraiser with close personal ties to the Romneys told MailOnline. 'At the Utah fundraiser, she gave an unbelievable speech.

    Condi's own words. "I could have been President if I wanted to, I was the Secretary of State." Now place your race card between your butt cheeks and hobble on over there and sit ye down. on the stump.

    I think Fox might have had a hand in the Ryan choice too. The echo chamber punditry was tooting the Ryan horn quite a bit leading up to his pick.

    You're right on the money about Audition 2012 that was the GOP Convention. None of those guys that spoke wants Romney to win this year. It's pretty hysterical :lol:
