His point was one that is unfounded and offensive to many people.
I didn't say you were smarter than anyone either. I said that you seem to "know" everything. In spite of his claims, you "know" what he meant. You probably can't see the difference. No matter.
The talk of Rice is interesting... A moderate is the only way for him to win.
Rick Santorum, without a doubt.
he went hard right campaigning for president. If you want to say he wasn't as far right as Santorum, sure, but Santorum is right off the scale.
His perception in the center is that he is to the right. Not center. Like I said in the other forum about this... got my fingers crossed that he goes hard right, it will only make it easier to take the center.
Pam Bondi is an interesting choice. She would give Romney huge bona fides in the Tea Party.
I have my few choices, but whom ever he chooses, the VP selection really needs to be a strong candidate.
But I do think he should rock the boat with his pick. Not someone Sarah Palin-esque, but certainly someone who can grab attention and hold it down.
I don't. He doesn't need to. Obama's record speaks for itself. People him consider him a stiff, but he's a stiff that could lead to an uptick in jobs, which is what he needs to sell over and over. There's no need to derail his campaign with a risky, Palin-esque choice. I think the closest he'll come to rocking the boat is Rubio. I think Pawlenty, Portman, and Jindal are all more likely choices, though.
I think the view that people will think Obama's record is grounds for a new president is a dangerous game. There is a substantive portion of the country that will vote for Obama regardless of what he does, there is a portion of the country that thinks that Obama's desired policies would have fixed the country by now but he was blocked, and there is another portion of the country that is distrustful of Romney and/or what they view as his agenda. These three portions put together plus any stragglers that don't quite fix into the groups I outlined can easily add up to 50+% of the electorate. The notion that the entire country is fed up with Obama and ready to give Romney a shot is unfounded in my view.
