    Any guesses for the Republican VP pick?

    I know the smart money's elsewhere, but I can't help but wonder if it'll be Paul Ryan.

    Ryan would be a good pick but it would cause the issues around the VP to focus on entitlement programs and budgetary issues, which could put voters to sleep.

    My money is on former Minn. governor Tim Pawlenty.

    NOOO! He's ours and you can't have him!:laugh:

    Seriously though, if he continues down the political path he's started on (actually doing what he campaigns on) I think the day may come.

    Agree. If it would be Ryan I think it would be for two main reasons I think: 1. His grasp of things fiscal in a bad economy, and 2. He's a politician who actually believes it matters (think Mr. Smith Goes to Washington).


    A wee bit biased?:smilewinkgrin:

    I can't get excited unless it is Rubio. Anyone else is a milk toast, IMO. We need a fire in the belly junk yard dog to balance out Mr. Romney's "niceness" and "gentleman" personality. I see no one other than Rubio able to pull that off - at least there is no one else who comes to mind. Gov. Christy is too liberal for me. So is Condi. At first I was ramped up about Petraeus, but gave it second thoughts, no that's too much of a reminder of Bush to do Romney any good.

    He needs to fire these lame brains he has heading up his campaign - their ignorant statements are really hurting him and are really starting to make conservatives like me wonder if he really wants to win after all. Maybe it's the thrill of the chase?

    Perhaps he should hire Gov. Christy's or Gov. Walker's campaign manager, using tired old John McCain's manager was a very poor choice. We all know how that turned out. :(

    Seeing as how this is round 2 of forcing a RINO on the ballot despite so many people crying out for a real option to vote for I am skeptical that anyone with any real conservative history is going to be allowed on the ticket.

    Tim Pawlenty perhaps? Or Jeb Bush?

    As an Obama supporter, I can only hope that maybe Michele Bachmann will get the nod. :)

    Why on EARTH would you want Rubio? He supported the NDAA, and strogly supported SOPA until he was flooded with angry letters...

    I am sorry, but we need people at the top that respect the Constitution, free speech, due process, etc., etc...

    Trump would lock in the bad hair vote.

    Rubio would help secure Florida, perhaps.

    I believe it will be Rubio. The man is sharp and charismetic. However, I thing he may have some baggage; but being Latino may protect him or an attack on him may lose the dems votes???

    Picking a neo-con like like Rubio will assure the splitting of the Republican party, and Obama victory.

    You'd rather see Ron Paul as the pick?

    President Obama's re-election is looking more certain with every passing day, if you follow the polls. Of course, polls can be wrong.

    I would love Ron Paul, but that would never happen. However, a more traditional constitutional conservative, such as Rand Paul, Bobby Jindal, or pretty much any conservative that opposed the NDAA, SOPA, and other massive government power increases would do...
