View Full Version : Just Thinking about Romney's Running Mate

04-03-2012, 12:45 PM
I was just looking up Alan Keyes age and I see he is only 61 and if Romney picked him as a running mate, I would definitely vote of him. He would relish a chance to face off against Obama again, I'm sure, because the first match-up didn't come out well at all.

Any other reluctant conservatives here that might be influenced by Romney's VP pick? Of course, I am holding out hope for a convention that will find a really good conservative to put at the top of the ticket.

Keep looking, as Keyes is a non-starter, imo.

A fiery orator he is, but just a little too far to the fringe.

Romney needs to fish in the independents' ocean, because even consolidating the entire GOP (which he may not be able to do) won't get him there. Assuming O gets the base out.

Caine fails the same categories as Romney, foreign policy and domestic policy. Keyes has those both covered in spades though he is out there with me and I like that.

Caine IZ spades.

LOL. What else is there to fail at?

Just for the record.

You will vote for a guy who is a habitual liar [see my Romney threads], a guy who changes positions on a daily basis, a guy even his own party hates, a guy who is so out of touch with the man on the street, a guy who by your own admission has no coherent policies at all, a guy who introduced Rommneycare/Obamacare/ and now tries to disown it - even though its been a great success?

You would rather vote for 'Etch a Sketch Man' than Obama.

That's like cutting off your nose to spite your face.

That's like cutting off your [Marxist/Socialist mixed race] nose to spite your [capitalist/pure race American] face.

Sure, who wouldn't do that??? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif
