    Forget about 15% real unemployment - maybe an economy worese than The Great Depression.

    Romney is running a Bob Dole, John McCain type of campaign.

    Needs to get off his duff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I like what he's doing.

    We're in the dead zone right now. He's not in any danger. All polls have him neck and neck with Obama all within margin of error (including almost all the lib polls except for Bloomberg which is so out to lunch I can't describe it).

    I hope he keeps it up and does a Santorum and hits the bbq circuit and breakfast diners across the land.

    Romney's camp is playing it smart. I understand the frustration. You want the fight here and now. But the key in strategy is September. Then one hits it.

    Dole/Kemp ticket was a throw away. There was no beating Clinton. Being honest here. Now McCain/Palin was doomed from almost the get go because Schmidt only and I mean only cared about himself.

    The 2008 wasn't about electing McCain to office to this man, it was all about Steve.We can go thousands of pages on Steve Schmidt if you want. I personally would love to have 10 minutes in a room with him with no video cameras present over what he did to Palin.

    Who will Romney chose as his VP running mate?

    My choice would be Christie.

    Not a very balanced pick - since both are from the same region.

    However - I think Christie could jump-start Romneys campaign with his common-man style.

    Sometimes I think pres candidates overthink their VP choice.

    That's an interesting choice. I'd take Jindal in a heartbeat. That's my druthers, but I like Christie too.

    Hey, bright side, we have so many good choices out there. :D

    Would like to see Christie but he is not running nor would he accept the offer. He has said as much.

    As for alternatives, I really do not care. I do not vote for the VP. I vote for the one in charge.

    I would like it if Romney would start sounding like Newt Gingrich a little more. :) That's what I would call getting his act together!

    Excellent hand-wringing demonstration, folks!

    I love the idea that Romney is going to get his ass handed to him because " he is too damned nice". What amazing perception you get from those dopey rabbit ears of yours.
