Romney will pick Huckabee as VP

     Romney will pick Huckabee as VP
     If Mitt Romney does win the GOP nomination, who will he pick as Vice President?  He will float a number of names for political reasons.  His list will surely include Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, Rob Portman, Sara Palin, Newt Gingrich and Chris Christie.  All with good reasons.
     Consider this, the home states of several of these men, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Jersey are swing states.
     Ryan, Rubio, Santorum, Gingrich and Christie are Catholics.   He will need that Catholic vote.  And his list will be loaded with Catholics since he isn’t going to pick one of them.  Well wait, if the race for the nomination should encounter a hiccup at this late date, he will have to take Rick Santorum anyway, to guarantee that he has enough delegates.  A situation he wants to avoid.  But don’t count on it.
     He will have Sarah Palin on his short list because he needs a woman and he needs to shore up his relationship with born again Christians.  But he doesn’t need too many born again Christians on his short list because he is going to choose one of them anyway.
     The choice of Rand Paul is a no brainer for the list.  His father and presidential contender, congressman Ron Paul, has great appeal to three critical constituencies, youth, Hispanics and Independents.  Paul typically won the youth vote in the GOP primaries and caucuses and his appeal to Hispanics was a surprise to the Party.  For example, in Clark County, (Las Vegas) Nevada he won 52% of the Hispanic vote while three other candidates split the rest.  A recent CBS survey found him even beating Obama with Independents.  Let’s see, youth, Hispanics, Independents?  That’s not only the future of the Republican Party, that’s the only way to beat Obama this time.  Rand would actually make a good choice.
     He will probably throw in Newt Gingrich’s name too.  Just to heal some old wounds.  After all, Gingrich, not Santorum, was the real threat all along.  And Gingrich was the target of most of his millions of dollars of negative attack ads.
     But these are only names that will be on his announced short list.  He will not actually pick any of the above.
     Marco Rubio, governor of Florida?  He may be a Catholic but he was baptized as a Mormon.  His grew up in a family of Latter Day Saints.  It would be too weird having a Mormon on the top of the ticket and a former Mormon as the second.   It would be like a Catholic picking a Catholic or an Hispanic picking a Hispanic.  Besides it would remind evangelicals of their worst fear, that the whole government will be forever loaded with Mormons too.  That Mormons will be running the IRS and auditing their churches.
     Romney, if he has any chance of winning at all, will pick former Arkansas governor, Mike Huckabee, as his running mate.  Because Huckabee is a born again Christian who is vetted.  Two very big factors.  Now if Huckabee were only a woman and an African American there wouldn’t be any doubt about it.  But the Romney campaign has been pretty stunning in its missteps.  So there is no guarantee that it will pick Huckabee.  People do stupid things.  Especially Romney.  And then, gas prices may climb to $8 a gallon and then he can pick whomever he wants.
     Consider, 48% of the nation claims to be born again Christians.  If even a fraction of them sit at home, the South, bulging with African American voters for Obama, will tilt to the Democrats.  Huckabee can help Romney carry the South.  And all of the other VP candidates will have surprises in the closet that will come out.  Huckabee too had some of those surprises but they are old news.  And they are manageable.
     The first rule of choosing a VP is do yourself no harm.

Mike Huckabee and Doug Wead

    What are your thoughts on Luis Fortuño? I thought he’d make a good running-mate for Ron. I’d be happy with him as Romney’s VP (probably wouldn’t vote for Romney though).

    • joe says:

      I am Puerto Rican and Luis Fortuno is the worst…

      Luis Fortuno is doing in Puerto Rico, everything Obama does in the U.S… calls himself a Republican, but acts very liberal…

    • tex2 says:

      Is Luis eligible? Why wouldn’t you vote for Romney?

      • k466 says:

        Because Romney=Obama.

      • tex2 says:

        While he has his problems, I wouldn’t equate the two. LOL

        I think Luis is eligible, but I think he’s too low profile and would be seen as a foreigner, not that we don’t have one in the White House now! LOL

      • Mike Urban says:

        Mitt Romney isn’t Conservative. Mitt Romney does not have respect for the Constitution or the rule of law. Mitt Romney has a D- rating from Gun Owners of America. His policies do not differ much from Obama’s whose policies do not differ much from George W. Bush’s. I would keep a little self respect and not cast a vote at all if the two major choices are Obama or Romney. There are many third party or write-in options in my state. This video is why I like Luis Fortuño: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gcExoF_qTo

      • tex2 says:

        Too bad Ron Paul has his own issues that make him a poor choice:

        Why Ron Paul would NOT be a good president:
        1. He is old, mousey, whiny, grumpy, skinny, etc. Do not underestimate the importance of these factors, as a very large number of voters are not familiar with the issues, and vote for vanity. Sad but true. It does no good to have good ideas when you don’t have the presidential image, and Ron has neither.
        2. He has been in Congress for 2 decades and doesn’t have a single bill to his name. We elected someone president with zero accomplishments in 2008, why would we want to do that again? How can you expect him to be able to lead the country when he can’t lead a single bill to fruition after 20 years?
        3. He even voted against his own bill to audit the Federal Reserve, because he didn’t get every single detail he wanted. He is so stubbornly rigid he simply takes his toys and goes home if he doesn’t get every little detail he wants.
        4. Many of his domestic policies are admirable, but how does he expect to implement them when he will have to work with Congress to get many of them turned into a reality? Will he simply hold his breath until Congress lets him get his way, because he has zero track record of using any other tactic to be successful?
        5. Most of his foreign policies are dangerous. If we pull out of foreign countries, the vacuum WILL be filled by Russia, China, etc. Once you lose your toehold, it is VERY difficult to expand military operations if the need arises. Think about how hard it would have been for the U.S. to fight Hitler if England had fallen. For example, if China decides they don’t want to allow free flow of oil, we would have no recourse, as it takes years, if not decades, to develop independent energy sources. He is simply naive to the point of being a traitor to his own country. Also, we need forward positioned military presence to fight the global war on terror. It isn’t being fought only in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are operations literally around the world preventing future 9/11 type attacks that simply cannot be fought by guarding our own borders, 9/11 should have taught us that. We must therefore disrupt the terrorist cells wherever they are, so they cannot organize, plan, recruit, train, equip, and attack again. To not do this would be suicidal.
        For the above and other reasons, Ron gets the pot smoking and “freedom at any cost” crowd, and that’s all he will ever get. LOL

        Ha Ha Ha, you must be a sheep. Romney can buy his way thru this campaign, but he doesnt offer any contrast to Obama. Obama would have the audience laughing at Romney, and besides, they both support NDAA, and whether you know it or not, tex2, you are indirectly supporting it too. LOL

      • tex2 says:

        My posts aren’t for you, they are for new people checking out this site and getting the scoop on RP. LOL

      • 1. That’s just your opinion and a classic example of both logical fallacy and ad hominem attack — well known disinfo tactics. Ex. Mitt Romney has a lot of money. Mafia Dons have a lot of money. Therefore, Mitt Romney is a Mafia Don. Mafia Dons are evil and beat their wives.

        2. Ron Paul is there to rock the boat and to protect the rights and freedoms of the American people, all the others are there to suck up tax dollars and bow to special interests. Passing bills does not make you a better politician, if you understand how the Government works.

        I’m sure if he sponsored 400+ bills authorizing tax cuts to the wealthy, 0% tax rate for corporations, increase in health care premiums, throwing the sick on the street, closing homeless shelters, 40 years mandatory min. for small time drug possession, shutting down welfare, cutting medicaid by 99% and increasing defence spending by 1000% he would have a 100% pass rate and would be hailed as the greatest republican ever.

        3. When a bill is neutered to the point where it won’t do what it was meant to do, why vote for it? Common sense. BTW, please cite which bill.

        4. If elected, it’s because the will of the people put him there. That means it’s in Congress’ best interest to work with him to represent their Constituents. Since Ron Paul’s Constitutional record is so strong, it would be hard to challenge someone who upholds the Law of the Land. And it’s not so much about passing bills, it’s more about repealing bills and all previous Executive Orders that are not Constitutional. There are too many ridiculous laws that protect Big Business and hurt Main Street businesses.

        5. Again, that’s just your misinformed opinion and more logical fallacy. What we need is more diplomacy. Al Qaeda attacked us for our freedom, right? Why didn’t Al Qaeda attack Switzerland? They’re a free country, aren’t they? You talk about oil, but you forget we have oil here. In fact, the U.S. exported more gasoline, heating oil and diesel fuel than it imported last year. You talk about terrorism… but how many people died in attacks last year? Whatever the number is, more people died from champagne cork accidents and honey bee stings. BTW, the border is WIDE OPEN. Is Al Qaeda REALLY that much of a threat? C’mon. If it is, why are we working with them in Syria? Why was Al Awlaki dining at the Pentagon? LOL

      • tex2 says:

Mafia Dons have a lot of money. Therefore, Mitt Romney is a Mafia Don. Mafia Dons are evil and beat their wives. –> http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2012/01/mitt_romney_vs_newt_gingrich_how_much_do_looks_matter_in_presidential_politics_.html You lose. LOL

        2. Ron Paul is there to rock the boat and to protect the rights and freedoms of the American people, all the others are there to suck up tax dollars and bow to special interests. Passing bills does not make you a better politician, if you understand how the Government works. –> So the bill Gingrich and Santorum led that reduced welfare in the 1990s was bad? Or the bills that Gingrich got passed that resulted in a surplus? LOL

        I’m sure if he sponsored 400+ bills authorizing tax cuts to the wealthy, 0% tax rate for corporations, increase in health care premiums, throwing the sick on the street, closing homeless shelters, 40 years mandatory min. for small time drug possession, shutting down welfare, cutting medicaid by 99% and increasing defence spending by 1000% he would have a 100% pass rate and would be hailed as the greatest republican ever. –> But he didn’t do ANY of those, or ANY OTHER BILLS for that matter, did he? He’s incompetent when it comes to working with others, unless it’s delivering babies! LOL

        3. When a bill is neutered to the point where it won’t do what it was meant to do, why vote for it? Common sense. BTW, please cite which bill. –> Because when you get results, even limited results, you gain respect. The next time, you are able to get more of what you want, because you have some respect. Then it grows even more each time. Too bad RP didn’t learn that common sense 20 years ago. LOL Do a wiki search for Federal Reserve Transparency Act.

        4. If elected, it’s because the will of the people put him there. That means it’s in Congress’ best interest to work with him to represent their Constituents. –> Congress can essentially ignore him for 4 years, because RP won’t be able to hold his tenuous support for very long. LOL

        Since Ron Paul’s Constitutional record is so strong, it would be hard to challenge someone who upholds the Law of the Land. —> He has no record, that’s the point. LOL

        And it’s not so much about passing bills, it’s more about repealing bills and all previous Executive Orders that are not Constitutional. There are too many ridiculous laws that protect Big Business and hurt Main Street businesses. —> Repealing a bill is essentially passing one (in reverse), and RP will need to get the cooperation of Congress and influence them, 2 things he hasn’t done for the 2 decades of being in Congress! LOL

        5. Again, that’s just your misinformed opinion and more logical fallacy. What we need is more diplomacy. Al Qaeda attacked us for our freedom, right? Why didn’t Al Qaeda attack Switzerland? —> No, they attacked us because they think we are “infidels” who should leave their part of the world, particularly Saudi Arabia, who is fine with us being there and we benefit from their oil, and Israel, who they think should not exist, and it is their duty to kill us. They haven’t attacked Switzerland because they have been running and hiding since 9/11, and have too little time and money to attack most other countries. But if you google Switzerland al qaeda attacks, you’ll find Switzerland IS on their radar screen. Diplomacy didn’t work for Neville Chamberlain with Hitler, and it won’t work for regimes that literally model themselves after their friends and WWII allies, the Nazis, such as Saddam Hussein. And Saddam was tame compared to Al Qaeda.

        They’re a free country, aren’t they? —> Of course Switzerland is free, and they benefit from the NATO alliance.

        You talk about oil, but you forget we have oil here. —> I never forgot we have oil, but it takes TIME to develop the industry, and when oil is plentiful and cheaper in other countries, free enterprise principles make foreign sources more attractive. I agree with RP we need to simplify and streamline our oil exploratory regulations, and so do the other presidential candidates. You forgot about drill baby drill, didn’t you? Barry shut that down, not the Republicans. Bush had significantly increased domestic oil exploration.

        In fact, the U.S. exported more gasoline, heating oil and diesel fuel than it imported last year. —> That is a very misleading statistic, because those are refined products made from imported crude oil for the most part.

        You talk about terrorism… but how many people died in attacks last year? —> I assume you mean in the U.S., and the number is low, because we have beat down terrorist organizations, have developed a strong terrorist detection program, and have been very lucky in many instances.

        Whatever the number is, more people died from champagne cork accidents and honey bee stings. —> The point isn’t comparing the numbers, the point is what would happen if we shut down all of the anti-terrorist programs.

        BTW, the border is WIDE OPEN. Is Al Qaeda REALLY that much of a threat? C’mon. —> The border is NOT wide open, but it is porous. I’ve been there, have you? Al Qaeda is still a threat, but has been weakened.

        If it is, why are we working with them in Syria? —> Because the Middle East is a messy place. We would prefer the violence stop and Syria become more stable so they aren’t a platform for terrorists, and Al Qaeda prefers taking over the country and making Syria a terrorist haven. Why do YOU think we are “working with them” in Syria?

        Why was Al Awlaki dining at the Pentagon? —> Because in 2001 he was viewed as a moderate Muslim, the military wanted to reach out to moderate Muslims, and he liked the Pentagon pork chops. Why don’t you tell ME why you think he was dining at the Pentagon in 2001? LOL

      • Everything you said was irrelevant and factually wrong. How many times was Al Awlaki killed? You believe everything the media tells you.

        Looks have nothing to do with governance. You are only talking about winning beauty pageants.

        Competence is not measured by how many bills you pass, so that is a logical fallacy. He was elected to Congress 12 times, so he must have been doing something right. Your opinions are worthless. Go hide in your bomb shelter… the terrorists are coming!

      • tex2 says:

        Everything you said was irrelevant and factually wrong. —> Everything? You’re a joke, and not the funny kind. LOL

        How many times was Al Awlaki killed? —> As far as I know, one. He ate a missile a few months ago. How many times do YOU think he died? LOl

        You believe everything the media tells you. —> No, I don’t. Do you disbelieve everything the media tells you? LOL

        Looks have nothing to do with governance. You are only talking about winning beauty pageants. —> The article I provided was clearly NOT about beauty pageants, it was about politicians. Everything you said was irrelevant and factually wrong. LOL

        Competence is not measured by how many bills you pass, so that is a logical fallacy. —> If you’re in Congress it is. And not just the number of bills, but the content of the bills. LOL

        He was elected to Congress 12 times, so he must have been doing something right. —> It’s called being an incumbent. He also lost 2 (and soon to be 3) times trying to become president. Or is that irrelevant and factually wrong? LOL

        Your opinions are worthless. —> That makes your less than worthless. LOL

        Go hide in your bomb shelter… the terrorists are coming! —> Thanks to the policies put in place by Bush and for the most part continued by Barry, I don’t need to hide. But I’ll consider your “advice” if RP becomes president! LOL

      • We beat down the terrorist threat. LOL! Or maybe it never existed to begin with. You are caught in Orwellian cognitive dissonance and lamestream propaganda. Why are we importing oil AND exporting it? That’s a ridiculous Ponzi scheme. LOL. FBI was behind WTC 93. What planet are you from? Gulf of Tonkin was staged. Saddam was working for us, you fool. We gave him gas to use on the Kurds. Israel attacked the USS Liberty. You need to do more research and figure out how it all fits together.

        Gulf of Tonkin was staged. —> Not really: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_of_Tonkin_incident Looks to me like the fog of battle.

        Saddam was working for us, you fool. —> So was Benedict Arnold, you fool.

        We gave him gas to use on the Kurds. —> Only a small part of the gas, and it wasn’t so he could use it on the Kurds.

        Israel attacked the USS Liberty. —> In error. You need to do more research and figure out how it all fits together, because it isn’t a giant conspiracy theory, these people aren’t competent enough to pull it off. LOL

      • You get your facts from Wikipedia, Traitor? LOL. No wonder you’re such a staunch supporter of Israel… the site has a team of people who edit the facts to suit their doctored history. LOL. Stop talking to me, you Traitor.

      Huckabee as VP – I’m in.

  2. annebeck58 says:

    I think, Doug, you may be correct.
    However, no matter whom Romney decides upon, said person must also say, “yes”.
    I wonder if Mike Huckabee would say, yes, to such an offer? I’d like to wonder if Rand Paul would say, yes, yet I do not see that happening. I think you are dead-on regarding Sarah Palin; Mitt Romney would need to have the woman on the string, for women, but I don’t see Ms Palin as being the correct woman-choice, for anything. Is she relevant any longer?

    Of course, I am still in the mode where I believe Ron Paul could garner the win, and I a wondering whom he’d choose as his veep. I actually don’t have a clue who that would be, but am sure the first and most important quality Dr Paul would require would be honesty. Is Mike Huckabee honest-enough for Ron Paul? He could very well be!

    Will have to see more into the future before I can make any further assessments, though! Thanks for another thought-provoking post. I only hope this will not be spammed as was, and is still, your last post.

    • tex2 says:

      • tex2 says:

        Yes, if you think RP would have a tiny chance of winning a general election against Barry (and I don’t), the judge would close the deal of a loss. LOL

      • In Bizarro World, maybe.You must be tired, you just don’t seem to be bringing your A-game today, muffin.

      • tex2 says:

        Not tired at all, but I don’t even need my Z-game to win against Paulites. Just put up the reasons why RP would be a poor president, and watch them squirm! LOL:

        Why Ron Paul would NOT be a good president:
        1. He is old, mousey, whiny, grumpy, skinny, etc. Do not underestimate the importance of these factors, as a very large number of voters are not familiar with the issues, and vote for vanity. Sad but true. It does no good to have good ideas when you don’t have the presidential image, and Ron has neither.
        2. He has been in Congress for 2 decades and doesn’t have a single bill to his name. We elected someone president with zero accomplishments in 2008, why would we want to do that again? How can you expect him to be able to lead the country when he can’t lead a single bill to fruition after 20 years?
        3. He even voted against his own bill to audit the Federal Reserve, because he didn’t get every single detail he wanted. He is so stubbornly rigid he simply takes his toys and goes home if he doesn’t get every little detail he wants.
        4. Many of his domestic policies are admirable, but how does he expect to implement them when he will have to work with Congress to get many of them turned into a reality? Will he simply hold his breath until Congress lets him get his way, because he has zero track record of using any other tactic to be successful?
        5. Most of his foreign policies are dangerous. If we pull out of foreign countries, the vacuum WILL be filled by Russia, China, etc. Once you lose your toehold, it is VERY difficult to expand military operations if the need arises.

We must therefore disrupt the terrorist cells wherever they are, so they cannot organize, plan, recruit, train, equip, and attack again. To not do this would be suicidal.
        For the above and other reasons, Ron gets the pot smoking and “freedom at any cost” crowd, and that’s all he will ever get. LOL

        Then again, is there someone else more qualified to be RP’s veep than the Judge?

      • @tex2 Ron Paul is the best to go up against Obama. He is the only taking Dems and Inde’s away from O. Here is the last Rasmussen poll in which Ron Paul is the most competitive against Obama: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/ron-paul-competitive-against-obama-011900919.html

      • tex2 says:

        Another question: Is there anyone else on the planet that would WANT to be RP’s VP? LOL

  3. The thing that most people don’t understand is that there is really very little difference in policy between Obama, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum or Newt! They ALL want to increase the size and scope of government. Which means less freedom and liberty for US the American people! Not only that but they ALL share the same foreign policy (bribe them with money. If that don’t work bomb them into submission) Which will lead us into financial ruin! (look at Europe) So there is only one candidate that will change the course of our country, That candidate is Ron Paul! While I don’t agree with everything he says, I do know that he is the only one that has a DIFFERENT plan! We cannot keep the same policies in place that got us where we are today! It’s just not possible no matter who is in charge. We NEED to change policy or go bankrupt, and there is only one choice that offers policy change. I know change is scary buy to me not changing is MORE scary!

        4. Many of his domestic policies are admirable, but how does he expect to implement them when he will have to work with Congress to get many of them turned into a reality? Will he simply hold his breath until Congress lets him get his way, because he has zero track record of using any other tactic to be successful?
        5. Most of his foreign policies are dangerous. If we pull out of foreign countries, the vacuum WILL be filled by Russia, China, etc. Once you lose your toehold, it is VERY difficult to expand military operations if the need arises. Think about how hard it would have been for the U.S. to fight Hitler if England had fallen. For example, if China decides they don’t want to allow free flow of oil, we would have no recourse, as it takes years, if not decades, to develop independent energy sources. He is simply naive to the point of being a traitor to his own country. Also, we need forward positioned military presence to fight the global war on terror. It isn’t being fought only in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are operations literally around the world preventing future 9/11 type attacks that simply cannot be fought by guarding our own borders, 9/11 should have taught us that. We must therefore disrupt the terrorist cells wherever they are, so they cannot organize, plan, recruit, train, equip, and attack again. To not do this would be suicidal.
        For the above and other reasons, Ron gets the pot smoking and “freedom at any cost” crowd, and that’s all he will ever get. LOL

      • Once again, please post questions without pretzel logic, lies, and spin. You’re such a joker! LOL

      • tex2 says:

        You claim “pretzel logic” but then do not describe HOW it is “pretzel logic.” Now THAT’S pretzel logic! LOL

        Why Ron Paul would NOT be a good president:
        1. He is old, mousey, whiny, grumpy, skinny, etc. Do not underestimate the importance of these factors, as a very large number of voters are not familiar with the issues, and vote for vanity. Sad but true. It does no good to have good ideas when you don’t have the presidential image, and Ron has neither.
        2. He has been in Congress for 2 decades and doesn’t have a single bill to his name. We elected someone president with zero accomplishments in 2008, why would we want to do that again? How can you expect him to be able to lead the country when he can’t lead a single bill to fruition after 20 years?
        3. He even voted against his own bill to audit the Federal Reserve, because he didn’t get every single detail he wanted. He is so stubbornly rigid he simply takes his toys and goes home if he doesn’t get every little detail he wants.
        4. Many of his domestic policies are admirable, but how does he expect to implement them when he will have to work with Congress to get many of them turned into a reality?

      • annebeck58 says:

        Hello, Darling Marchella! Yes, the twit has not stopped, and I really don’t know what his deal is; obviously, he’s not even American (nevermind Texan), and when I threw this in his (whatev) face, *s*he has not said I am wrong. The little idiot has just stopped bothering with me; that’s nice, but I’d like to garner more info re where the punk is.
        Regardless, I do find this fake American and fake Texan a pain in the rear- for messing with many different blogsites, attempting to make a mockery of us and of Ron Paul, while *s*he has NO say-so in what’s done in this country.

        (Aside, to tex2)
        Hey, KOMRAD: got it? You will be happy to hear I received a call, from TX GOP, this morning; asking me which volunteer position I would like. Obviously, they want me because the most important thing to me, in ANY election, is honesty and transparency. I won’t give away my position, yet, since I know you will stew on it (haha). I received another call from the office, just now as I was writing this, and we confirmed what I will be doing for the GOP in Texas, as well as (probably) NATIONALLY!. Now, be a good child and do not pester me, tex2- and maybe I’ll fill you in at some point?

        One thing these jerks don’t get is this: honesty and being willing to stand for truth always wins out!

      • You’re not qualified to teach people about the REAL Ron Paul, Jughead.

      • annebeck58 says:

        Did you notice, when “Jughead” responds (in her way) to anyone’s comments, the tool does not actually SAY anything about whomever the responder spoke of (like Luis) except to say, “(so and so) is terrible, will never get elected”. This twit has no idea who’s being discussed, and has no info on these people.
        Jughead (and I am SURE these idjit has zero idea what that means, either) just says the same stupid thing, constantly; it’s nothing. It has no response as it is unaware of ANYone running for ANY office in the USA, other than what (s)he’s seen in the newzzzz. from USA (or from RT of AlJezeera- and I don’t mean, AJEnglish, either).
        It’s failed, completely.
        I am not saying we should not hear the world when they beg us to vote for Ron Paul. I am saying there’s no need to listen to or pay idiots who think interrupting our election season is, “fun”, any mind.
        (I do like the name, “Doris”, though! Or– maybe, “little Lotta”?)

      • tex2 says:

        I won’t be voting for him in the primary, but I will vote for him if he gets the nomination, sour puss. LOL

      • Why? Because of your Ward Cleaver fetish? Creepy.

      • tex2 says:

        No. Because he’s the Republican nominee. Creepy would be having a nutjob fetish and voting for Ron Paul! LOL

      • I would vote for you mom, but this isn’t a race for Prostitute of the Year… it’s for President. And Romney could win either race. LOLDERP!

        I’m sure Doug is proud of you. Must be why he is changing the subject away from RP. LOL

        Hey- Michael; just for fun:

        It’s a video I made a while ago, based on the words some of the tools in youtube sent to me– They tried to call me names (and actually threatened me, more than once), so i turned their words back onto them.

        It’s the Zuppet (or Zionist Puppet) Theatre Show!

  5. Sam says:

    Sam, first let me point out a couple of minor errors in your article.

    1-It is Sarah Palin, not Sara Palin. You made this error in the first paragraph.
    2-Marco Rubio is a Senator from Florida, not the governor. The governor is Rick Scott.

    As for the article, I disagree that Huckabee would be the choice. I believe that Romney will attempt to get social conservatives on board but Huckabee is viewed as only a social conservative.

    I believe Jim DeMint could be a choice. Fiscal bona-fides, social conservative, a tea-partier but he is not seen as crazy but instead respected. Bob McDonnell, the governor of Virginia is another choice and Romney admitted he is on the shortlist. A swingstate Gov. but his style may be too similar to Romney’s.

    Romney would not pick Gingrich or Palin under any circumstances. They are political dead weight.

    • tex2 says:

      Huckabee was a governor, those who think he is ONLY a social conservative are so stupid they’re democrats anyway. LOL

      Here’s another idea: http://patriotupdate.com/20867/palin-pick-allen-west

      • tex3 says:

        In the previous article”s comment thread, you demonstrated that you know nothing about the term “conservative” LOL

      • tex2 says:

        In the previous article’s comment thread, you demonstrated that you know nothing about the term “common sense.” LOL

      • tex3 says:

        The blatant lack of knowledge you have displayed in the comment areas has brought me to stop even looking at your links, but ill continue to point out the many flaws in your arguement. You might benefit from learning a little bit about the material you desperately persue an arguement over. LOL

      • tex2 says:

        You haven’t listed a SINGLE example of my “lack of knowledge,” which makes YOU look stupid. LOL

    • annebeck58 says:

      The only problem I see with Jim DeMint (as far as RomNot is concerned) is that DeMint threw his support behind Paul. Do you think Jim DeMint would say, yes, to RomNot, if he was asked?
      I don’t know who, for sure (well, maybe little Ricky- either Santorum or numnuts-Perry) would say, yes.
      I like DeMint and i had a lovely conversation with him the evening of (or before, I think) the SC primary. But, I don’t know how much DeMint likes any of the also-rans.
      (one reason I know Santorum will not win is this: his name is still a misspelling in google and chrome)

        Ron now has a whopping 10% of the vote! LOL

      • You poor, misled sheeple-girl. Delegates. Remember?

      • tex2 says:

        Ron Paul is in last place, for votes AND delegates. Remember? LOL

      • Because CNN makes up fake delegate numbers, you think you’re right? LOL

      • annebeck58 says:

        The child does not comprehend that the newzzzz showzzz all use the same texts from Reuters or AP to tell people what they “need to know”, in order to lull them to sleep. If one compares broadcasts (from same day, same topic), as has been done in yt, one sees that they hardly bother to alter the wording in what these (jo)urinalists present.
        It is so easy to dispell any notions (which is always the same notion) of Junior-Miss texas, here, it is hardly worth the time.
        This is not saying I did not enjoy your responses, as well as those of TEX3; I just had a very good good laugh with both of you!

      • tex2 says:

        All of the news organizations have about the same numbers. You truly are an idiot, aren’t you? LOL

        ——————————————————————————-

        LOL

        So when did they release the “actual” delegate count? LOL
        I was under the impression that some states havent completed the delegate process. Since you must be the “master of information”, why dont you fill us in, because we dont follow that stuff round these parts–LOL

      • tex2 says:

        According to the Texas GOP person I talked to today, the delegate count is an estimate, but it is probably very close to the official count when it comes out. It is therefore VERY unlikely the last place candidate will overtake the first place one (or second or third for that matter). LOL

      • tex3 says:

        Yeah we know gingrich wont move out of last place. LOL
        So you finally clued in about the media estimates for delegates, LOL

        Im pretty sure eveyone here already knew that. LOL

    • Ok, so that means 2 people don’t understand the delegate process. You and “the Texas GOP person”. Thanks for sharing..

  7. Danny says:

    Hey Doug, looking forward to 2016, I think we need to access our options.

    We obviously have Senator’s Rand Paul and Mike Lee, two Constitutionalists. Rep. Amash would be great though he might be viewed as too young even if he would technically be 35. Former governor Mark Sanford who could be viable if his image can be repaired. Also former governor Gary Johnson, who would be more suited as a VP pick. It might be best to double down on the two govs so that we still have Rand and Mike in the senate.

    What do you think?

    • tex2 says:

      Sanford is toast. LOL

      Johnson is running in the Libertarian Party.

      • tex3 says:

        Wow! Finally! tex2 posted a comment that contained a fact!

        CONGRATULATIONS TEX2

        YOU TOLD THE TRUTH!! YAY!!! HOORAY FOR YOU!!

        You are finally correct; Gary Johnson is indeed a Libertarian.

        This is a surprise to all of us here that have used the comment section in recent times.

        I find it very funny she says things like, “no I am educating —(AHAHAHA)- the ‘new’ people”… while each ‘new’ person has responded (or not) to Junior-Miss Tex in the same manner.

      • tex2 says:

        It’s a FACT most people who read blogs never post. LOL

  8. Mr. Dembowski says:

    Mitt may wish to pick Huckabee for VP but there there are a few reasons that huckabee will not accept. First off Huckabee just started his radio program and has been able to make a dent in the rating against limbaugh. His radio contract will soon be worth millions of dollars every year. Also, he can do his radio show from his brand new super mansion that he recently completed building. Huckabee may seem like a logical choice but he is too happy and his life is becoming far too lucrative to ever work in government again.

    Truly, over sixty spammed comments from tex2 on your other post and approximately ten, here, in less than an hour? When it too much enough to cut-off fools such as this? I know I’ve had enough of it, and I would like to hear from more reasonable thinkers, with better (not spammed) ideas. Allowing fools the room to completely ruin the blog is, in my opinion, not the same thing as allowing free-speech.

      Alright, Anne, you are exactly right, I am fed up with this LOL-ing child-spammer. Case in point, he has copied the same comment at least half a dozen times. My inbox has 139 emails from this post.

      Doug, for the sake of your your blog, please do something about this! Thanks.

      • annebeck58 says:

        Yes;
        the only reason I knew how many pieces of spam the tool had (at that point) put up was because I had (initially) deleted them all.
        At about noon, yesterday, the count was 74; 64 from the other post, 10 from this post. I am sure the twit has doubled that (minimally) or even tripled it, by now.
        The childish foreigner (is not a Texan and is not am American) is simply here to be irritating. I generally do not respond to that sort of thing, other than to ignore it.
        Other than Doug Wead being very busy, I cannot see why the punk has not yet been blocked. Personally, I know that doesn’t take time to do, and is not difficult, at all.
        (I would love the idjit to try posting on my blog– it just won’t happen!)

      • tex2 says:

        Is not “am” American? LOL

        You really don’t know why I’m here, do you? LOL

        I couldn’t care less about your blog. LOL

  13. Hey Doug, let’s get a brokered convention and have Ron Paul elected like Harding was in 1920. If this works out, we will have the Judge as his running mate (Catholics/Swing states) or maybe Williams or Sowell (African American Conservative vote). Only if after Rand could be Speaker of the House! #Dreamworld

    If you can’t read simple sentences to find facts, you MUST be a Ron Paul supporter. LOL Congratulations!!! LOL LOL LOL

    • I could read everything you write, but that doesn’t make it Shakespeare, right? Doesn’t make any of it true either. You’re entitled to your opinion, but don’t pass it off as Gospel. It just makes you look cheap, Private Pyle.

      • tex2 says:

        You haven’t remotely challenged it either, public pile of crap! LOL

      • You can’t debate. You don’t even know Ron Paul’s policies.

      • tex2 says:

        You can’t put together a cogent sentence. You don’t even know how to refute my points, shown below, LOL:

        Why Ron Paul would NOT be a good president:
        1. He is old, mousey, whiny, grumpy, skinny, etc. Do not underestimate the importance of these factors, as a very large number of voters are not familiar with the issues, and vote for vanity. Sad but true. It does no good to have good ideas when you don’t have the presidential image, and Ron has neither.
        2. He has been in Congress for 2 decades and doesn’t have a single bill to his name. We elected someone president with zero accomplishments in 2008, why would we want to do that again? How can you expect him to be able to lead the country when he can’t lead a single bill to fruition after 20 years?
        3. He even voted against his own bill to audit the Federal Reserve, because he didn’t get every single detail he wanted. He is so stubbornly rigid he simply takes his toys and goes home if he doesn’t get every little detail he wants.
        4. Many of his domestic policies are admirable, but how does he expect to implement them when he will have to work with Congress to get many of them turned into a reality? Will he simply hold his breath until Congress lets him get his way, because he has zero track record of using any other tactic to be successful?
        5. Most of his foreign policies are dangerous. If we pull out of foreign countries, the vacuum WILL be filled by Russia, China, etc. Once you lose your toehold, it is VERY difficult to expand military operations if the need arises. Think about how hard it would have been for the U.S. to fight Hitler if England had fallen. For example, if China decides they don’t want to allow free flow of oil, we would have no recourse, as it takes years, if not decades, to develop independent energy sources. He is simply naive to the point of being a traitor to his own country. Also, we need forward positioned military presence to fight the global war on terror. It isn’t being fought only in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are operations literally around the world preventing future 9/11 type attacks that simply cannot be fought by guarding our own borders, 9/11 should have taught us that. We must therefore disrupt the terrorist cells wherever they are, so they cannot organize, plan, recruit, train, equip, and attack again. To not do this would be suicidal.
        For the above and other reasons, Ron gets the pot smoking and “freedom at any cost” crowd, and that’s all he will ever get. LOL

      • tex3 says:

        Michael, I sense that you have stuck a nerve with tex2.nice

        Im guessing (s)he either young or some introverted geek type.

        I’m guessing you’re either stupid or an idiot – perhaps both. LOL

      Hmm, if thats the case, what does that say about the intellect of the GOP, as they are being outsmarted and taken over by the very same People—LOL

  15. tex3 says:

    I will give a Quick rebuttle to tex2′s copy&paste comment that he has been spamming these comment threads with. My responses will be numbered according to the numbers on tex2′s copy&paste comment.

    1. Reading that made me think of the youtube video with the old lady voting for Romney, because “he has nice hair.”

    2. Ron Paul is the only candidate that boasts a perfect voting record, never flipflopping, and compared with the other candidates voting records, stands out as the only conservative candidate.

    3.Ron Paul has shown that he sticks to his principle. Vetoing the amended bill? Imsure the ammendments altered the bill.

    4. Ron Pauls policies are the most logical of all the candidates, Why would i not vote for Paul over that?That doesn sound like its ever been a deciding factor in who to vote for.I certainly am not going to vote for any “perpetual war” candidates. (the other four)

    5. This reminds me of all the hilarious mocking of Bachman in the Iowa debate. The Phrase; “Ron Pauls foreign policy is dangerous”
    echoed over the airwaves of the sheepvision news, in an effort to disinform from the “actual” foreign policie, which is the only one that makes sense. here is a link;

    http://www.ronpaul2012.com/the-issues/national-defense/

    tex2, Issue number five sounds like you have been a victim of fearmongering, You have some realizations to come to.

    • annebeck58 says:

      NIce, TEX3. Not that the youngster will read it or respond, except to copy and paste it back to you. Like that is a response?? Insane.

    • tex2 says:

      1. Except it’s REAL, see my April 5, 2012 at 4:24 am post. LOL
      2. You didn’t answer the questions: He has been in Congress for 2 decades and doesn’t have a single bill to his name. We elected someone president with zero accomplishments in 2008, why would we want to do that again? How can you expect him to be able to lead the country when he can’t lead a single bill to fruition after 20 years? He stands out as the only Libertarian candidate. Also, see my April 5, 2012 at 4:24 am post.
      3. Of course it was altered, that’s the nature of our system. If you’re not flexible, you’ll be a wall flower, like Ron Paul.
      4. A president has to be able to work WITH Congress, and RP has shown zero ability to work with them while he’s been one of them, what makes you think he can work with them when he’s not one of them?
      5. Forget about Bachmann. You didn’t respond to the issues I raised: Most of his foreign policies are dangerous. If we pull out of foreign countries, the vacuum WILL be filled by Russia, China, etc. Once you lose your toehold, it is VERY difficult to expand military operations if the need arises. Think about how hard it would have been for the U.S. to fight Hitler if England had fallen.

      • I answered these, Santorum supporter. So did tex3. Are you feigning ignorance or are you just ignorant? See above. ZOMGMEGALOL!!!

      • annebeck58 says:

        Does this TOOL believe it’s 4:24 in the morning– or later?? If so, the TOOL is not even a Texan– just as I suspected. Hell, the tool is not even American, so you were right, too (either you or TEX3) in that earlier comment.
        Yes, it is a lying piece of dog-dung or llama dung or cat-poo, and I am not done with it. what a foolish IDIOT.
        Today is the 5th, and we have not yet four in the morning– ANYWHERE in America- not even in TEXAS.

        What a complete and utter lying tool. NO wonder it comes online at a different time and (seems to be) is on all night (for us). what a jerk.

      • I think this particular specimen is a Hasbara disinfo troll. They’re easy to beat because they’re using outdated persuasion tactics. You should try the new stuff, tex2. You might actually get somewhere. But I made you self-destruct and show your hand. Can you guess where? LOL

      • annebeck58 says:

        Yes, I did consider that the Komrad would be in Piss+Real, too. It would not shock me, but also would not shock me were he a Russian Cosmonaut (is his brain not lost in space?)..
        After all= most of those Ashcan Nazis are not exactly Semites- they just hate Semites.

        I am so talented, I too, can take beautiful photos of myself with my lovely behind. The Kook’s “insults” are worsening, and his own “image” as a Texan is gone. As a friend said regarding this twit, earlier; his or her hat would be larger than (him) her.

    And the point Wead? Am I paying you to do this for Romney? Something is smelling pretty bad with this article and you Wead.

  17. Shelley Lee says:

    Tex2

    1. I can guarantee you that he is probably healthier than you or even me, for that matter, and I work out daily. Whiny? Really. Kettle..Pot..Black…What is it you are doing right now, repeating these dumb points over and over again because you cannot get the attention that you want?

    You are 100% correct when you say that most people vote for vanity, and you are no better than them when you say that he has good ideas but doesn’t have the presidential image. What is the president supposed to look like anyway? The same as all the other morons that have held office? No thank you. Just because you say it is “sad, but true” but then try to justify it, makes you just as guilty as all the other vain idiots. You’re just another sheeple who follows the herd. Bahhhh.

    2. Yes he has been in congress for 2 decades. Thank you for pointing out how electable he has been for 2 decades! You have no point. Take the time to do some research to see why he ran for congress, then come back with something new.

    3. I do not call that stubborn, I call that standing by your principles 100% and being consistent. Something none of the other candidates will EVER have. Next….

    4. By making them stand by the principles of the Constitution. That’s how. He would never go against the Constitution, therefore, Congress should agree with most of what he asks. If they don’t stand by the Constitution, than they have no business being in Congress.

    5. It is so dangerous to mind our own business and deal with our own problems and issues, and practice free trade instead of forcing it and stealing? But sticking our nose in where it doesn’t belong, stealing oil, gold, whatever, at the cost of thousands of innocent lives….that is not dangerous at all! Not one bit. You’re an idiot. Lets continue to do that because someone else will if we don’t? Then we may never get out “placement” back. Do you see how dumb you sound? Again, bahhhhhhhhhhhhh bahhhhhhhhhhh.

    Someone get the clippers, I need a coat for next winter.

    No I did not address every single little detail because your a moron. That is all you get.

    • tex2 says:

      1. Guarantee…probably? LOL The study didn’t list “healthy” and neither did I. LOL However, he can probably say “freedom” more times in 60 seconds than I can, I’ll give you THAT! LOL The study means if you want to win an election with someone who agrees with Ron Paul, the candidate cannot be Ron Paul. If you don’t like the facts, don’t blame me, I merely referenced the study. LOL

      2. Most incumbents get reelected. He couldn’t win a statewide election, let alone a national one. LOL

      3. I call that losing. Do you want to be right or win? Next! LOL

      4. I’m no fan of Congress, but tell me, how does one MAKE someone else stand by the principles of the Constitution? Many people have honest and legitimate different understanding of the Constitution than Ron does. LOL

      5. Yes, it is dangerous to isolate ourselves in the manner you suggest. But it must be wonderful to be naive. LOL

      No I did not address every single little detail because your a moron. That is all you get. LOL

I promise I will play along and pretend like you won, just so you can feel what it’s like for once. It will be like that time when you were little and you handed me your toy phone and said, “It’s for you!!!” Remember how I played along and pretended like there was someone else on the other end? You got a big kick out of that. Then you had an accident from laughing too hard and mommy changed your diaper. We had fun last year… then you developed this attitude problem and I had to dump your mom because she refused to control you. I always told her she should send you to military school because you would make lovely cannon fodder. She didn’t agree. DUMPED HER! LOL

      • tex2 says:

        You STILL mean so little to me, no pouting involved. LOL

      • Why would I want to mean anything to you? You ARE the reason I left your mom at the truck stop. How is your mom these days? I saw her pictorial in Lot Lizard Monthly, she’s looking better now that she’s had her teeth fixed. GIGANTALOL!!!

I wish I could do that; you really have something singular Tex2. If I were you I would tell your lifeless mom thanks, she really did a great job before she expired.

That’s why I don’t support Ron Paul, because I just don’t give a shit. Now come on Tex2, we both can LOL to that together! Buddy!

    Ron Paul has 51 delegates, read it and weep you idealistic, logical, out of tune, RP supporters. LOL

    • annebeck58 says:

      You know, I am thinking RomNot has just made a fatal error..
      Most delegates have NOT yet been counted, and that guy does not have what he needs to be the nominee, yet? Mitt has decided to turn his attention to OBAMA?
      Well, in Texas, we will not be voting til the 29th May, and won’t hold our caucus/convention til the 1st June. We have #155 delegates to the national convention, and I guess RomNot does not need them, because he has NOT (and looks as if he will not) responded to invite for our nationally-televised debate in Texas. What a TOOL, This is making many Texans angry, and could be we’ll just go with (anyone– esp Ron Paul) someone else. Paul, the Grinch, and even santorum have responded; RomNot? NOT.

      Way to make one of the largest states in this Union feel disrespected and irrelevant? Not a smart move. I imagine Cali means about as much to the fool, too, and to this I say, GOOD- Brokered conventions are always better! I would love to see something akin to 1968, the first year I took a big interest in politics.
      Why should conventions come off as coronations?? They are our meeting places, where WE, the voters (the Super Voters) come together to discuss OUR options and decide on our nominee; It’s traditionally where deals are firmed-up (yes, this is politics), from the local, district, and state caucus meetings.. WHY do we need everything, including our nominees, sewn up by 1st day Spring? It’s a really stupid fast-food society that’s gone over into (even) politics. It is “gimme, NOW” that has infiltrated our psyches, while we should all remember the adage,
      Good thing will come to those who wait!

      SO, she is very disappointed in Obama, but she will vote for someone (or two) whose policies are just the same as O? This is the mentality that drives me crazy.
      Why are these people not THINKING about what they are doing? She wants the biggest ethics-violators as OUR Potus and Veep? Thanks, lady. She’s probably my age, and I find her “thought process”, scary.

      • tex2 says:

        WRONG. None of the Republican candidates have the same policies as Barry O. LOL

        This is the mentality that identifies a person as a crazed, loony, nutjob RP supporter! LOL

        Why are RP people not THINKING? I don’t know, but that is what makes them “premium” RP supporters. LOL

        She thinks all the other Republican candidates are the biggest ethics-violators? LOL

        Thanks, dingbat. LOL

        And by the way, you make me happy to NOT be a woman, as there is less chance I’ll be mistaken for you. LOL

  27. tex3 says:

    without the majority of delegates, how are Paul supporters taking over these precincts? LOL

    • tex2 says:

      By being loud and obnoxious. I would describe it more as obstructing the orderly course of the caucus.

      • You’re half right. *Respect*

        See, you admitted he took over the precincts by getting a majority of the delegates, so you lose 1 star in your trolling report card.

        Remember: Always ignore what doesn’t help you.

        Now, where you’re REALLY wrong is that we won here because we know Robert’s Rules better than the old guard.

      • tex2 says:

        You’re a whole idiot. I haven’t seen an official report to know whether he got a majority of the delegates, so I wasn’t making a claim either way on that issue.

      2. Many of us are not “kids” and we certainly do not smoke pot.

      Many of us are just sick of the racist drug war. We also see pot as a medicinal plant and feel it should be up to each state to make her own decision- bring that decision to the actual voter, and shut-down the overseers in the DEA. Don’t states do a good enough job of overseeing and administering their own laws? Do we need federal laws for social issues, when each state has developed her OWN laws, via the voters?
      Little tex has zero idea how politics, in the states, work. For that, alone, I say we ignore the idjit.

    If Romney picked Ron Paul for V.P., 90% of Paul supporters would NOT vote for Romney. And that’s the plain and simple truth.

    So, apparently this Tex2 character has a beef with Doug about some Amway scam that he got burned on way back when and is obsessive compulsive enough to spam Doug’s blog for the past few years, which is probably grounds for a trip to the insane asylum. But anyway, you can go to tex2′s blog and spam the hell out of it to return the favor LOL! http://texsquixtarblog.blogspot.com/2009/01/talk-to-tex.html

  32. Surfisher says:

    BAN *tex2* from this site IMMEDIATELY — Never allow IT to post here again! ALSO, DO NOT RESPOND TO ANY OF ITS TROLLING !

    Dear, Doug — this is your HOME page, and all of us posting here are your guests. Don’t know about your tolerance level, but mine ends when an unwelcome guest tries to set my home on fire, in order to chase out all the welcomed people I’ve invited!

    No normal exchange can be held here — since the #2 quickly fills in all REPLY slots….so no-one else can respond sequentially to what was stated before. This is its main goal (secondary is its spittings of hatred to all that’s good)!

    The #2′s strategy is simply hitting the REPLY button (posting some vitriol), then another REPLY button — thus VIRTUALLY HIJACKING any thread from allowing others to directly respond to the original post.

    PUT a STOP to IT — send Doug the needed message/program to BAN/BLOCK this Shill from his blog!

  33. Surfisher says:

    Vote YES to BAN the “tex2″ creature — your votes will be counted, and submitted to Doug!

    Our Future, as a Free and Prosperous Nation is too precious to ALLOW any Troll, such as the #2 — by its hijacking of all threads— to confiscate this Forum away from us (where Real Americans are trying to converse on what’s best for the US)!

    Voting starts now:

    1) Surfisher — Yes

  34. Surfisher says:

    Dear Doug Wead,

    How can we have confidence that you are capable of managing Ron Paul’s campaign, when you are unable to manage your own blog?

    On any other Forum the destructive manipulations of “tex2″ would have been removed by a moderator, and the creature banned (regardless how many IP’s it uses, there are programs that can track and block them).

    On this, and even OTHER forums, I’ve read people saying that while they read your blog, they won’t post on it — since they don’t want to be verbally abused by the #2. Their take is: Why bother posting or replying here — the #2 is going to hijack the thread by peppering it with insults and non-sensical multi-replies….

    In the last 30 days, IT has posted more times than the combined total of all other posters (also, ITS total word count exceeds that of the rest)!

    Many good people are leaving your forum because of the above. Unless you take care of it, why should we stay?

    Are you paying attention to the people voting to BAN this waste-of-protoplasm?!

    So far the vote to BAN it from your site is:
    1) Surfisher
    2) Sharon Kuhn
    3) annebeck58
    4) christopher Deligate of Missouri
    5) donjusko
    6) sharksauce24
    7) sophiah8
    8) rmcnnlly
    9) BanTex2Al
    10) Wendy Jones
    11) Evan Godolphin

    Awaiting your reply.

    Sincerely, Surfisher

      The Passion of the Christ is a good movie, but I don’t know if I want to watch it THAT many times in a row, so let’s take a break from this repetitious “program” and allow other readers to comment on the below serious and real issues that result in baggage for Ron Paul. Tell me what you think, let’s have open and honest discourse, and since I’m a First Amendment kind of guy, even the “list” above is welcome to chime in:

      Why Ron Paul would NOT be a good president:
      1. He is old, mousey, whiny, grumpy, skinny, etc. Do not underestimate the importance of these factors, as a very large number of voters are not familiar with the issues, and vote for vanity. Sad but true. It does no good to have good ideas when you don’t have the presidential image, and Ron has neither.
      2. He has been in Congress for 2 decades and doesn’t have a single bill to his name. We elected someone president with zero accomplishments in 2008, why would we want to do that again? How can you expect him to be able to lead the country when he can’t lead a single bill to fruition after 20 years?
      3. He even voted against his own bill to audit the Federal Reserve, because he didn’t get every single detail he wanted. He is so stubbornly rigid he simply takes his toys and goes home if he doesn’t get every little detail he wants.
      4. Many of his domestic policies are admirable, but how does he expect to implement them when he will have to work with Congress to get many of them turned into a reality? Will he simply hold his breath until Congress lets him get his way, because he has zero track record of using any other tactic to be successful?
      5. Most of his foreign policies are dangerous. If we pull out of foreign countries, the vacuum WILL be filled by Russia, China, etc. Once you lose your toehold, it is VERY difficult to expand military operations if the need arises. Think about how hard it would have been for the U.S. to fight Hitler if England had fallen. For example, if China decides they don’t want to allow free flow of oil, we would have no recourse, as it takes years, if not decades, to develop independent energy sources. He is simply naive to the point of being a traitor to his own country. Also, we need forward positioned military presence to fight the global war on terror. It isn’t being fought only in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are operations literally around the world preventing future 9/11 type attacks that simply cannot be fought by guarding our own borders, 9/11 should have taught us that. We must therefore disrupt the terrorist cells wherever they are, so they cannot organize, plan, recruit, train, equip, and attack again. To not do this would be suicidal.
      For the above and other reasons, Ron gets the pot smoking and “freedom at any cost” crowd, and that’s all he will ever get…LOL

    “Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson could pull as much as 6% of the vote in a hypothetical three-way match-up with Mitt Romney and President Obama. Johnson began the 2012 race running for the Republican nomination but has wound up carrying the libertarian banner and could gain ballot access in several states.”

    If the above transpires, it is a certainty that Mitt will not defeat BO (with his flip-flopping, he couldn’t defeat him anyway, now this would assure it).

    So he needs to withdraw now in favor of Ron Paul!
    ————————————————————————-

    Ron Paul WILL become President in 2012 — IF, Romney becomes a Patriot, and forgoes his ego, for the Good of the People!

    Mitt Romney could become one of the greatest Statesmen in US History! He’d be the Savior of our Nation — the one that generations to come would tell their children: “Look at this statue, this is Mitt Romney, he saved America”!

    Or, he can reduce himself to just a tiny footnote…what is amazing is that his fate rests in his own hands (a very rare occurrence throughout the history of the world)!

    All Romney has to do, is to take advantage of this rarest of historical moments, and make a SINGLE DECISION!!!

    Withdraw his candidacy IN FAVOR of Ron Paul, with the following grandiose and heart-wrenching patriotic speech (to save his political skin):

    “I, Mitt Romney, will sacrifice my political goals for the Good of the People. Now I understand that only Ron Paul that can save our Nation. I agree with all he stands for, therefore, I have deemed that our Nation’s salvation can only be accomplished when Ron Paul is elected as President of the United States of America. Without regret, but with joy, I do the most honorable and patriotic deed I can — I withdraw myself from this election, and give my full support to Ron Paul!”

    One honest person is needed to bring these logical conclusions to Romney’s PERSONAL ATTENTION (not the myopic sycophants surrounding him and stroking his ego by chanting wishful thinking as ‘fact’: “You gonna win Boss, you gonna win Boss….).

    Regardless how egotistical, arrogant and narcissistic Romney may be, some semblance of reasoning of what’s best for him, should still remain in his skull. The instinct for self preservation dictates that even the smallest of minds will chose the path that leads to safety, not the one leading to disaster.

    An honest realist needs to talk to Romney one-on-one — and explain the following to him, so Mitt can comprehend it:

    1) If you don’t win the nomination, than your political career is over (you’ll become just a tiny footnote in US History as a failure).

    2) If you win the nomination, and don’t defeat Obama — which is the most probable outcome (you’ll become just a tiny footnote in US History as an even LARGER failure).

    Therefore, Dear Mitt, whichever gamble you take from the above, may lead to total disaster for your political career (and probably will)!

    However, here is an action you can take, Dear Mitt, that guarantees you’ll become immortalized in the annals of US History — becoming the 21st Century Savior of America (surely this carrot of success will entice Romney’s egotism to go for it — over the probable political beatings he’d receive otherwise)!

    All one needs to do, to assure Mitt’s Historical Greatness of Sacrifice for the Good of the Nation, is to present the above to Romney’s eyes alone! I urge all able to do so, to place this document in front of him!

    Send this to Mitt Romney — as an Open Letter, e-mails, etc. — the more you send, the greater the chance he’ll get to read it!

      Ron Paul MUST stay on course — keep up the uphill battle to win as many delegates as possible (that the GOP does not prevent him to do, by their obvious chicanery)!

      Ron Paul needs to take Rmoney to Tampa. Then, the PERFIDY of the GOP will be Nationally telecast (hundreds of thousands of Real Americans supporting the only Patriot (RP), vs a few hundred mousey sycophants for Mitt Grosny, will be hard to dismiss)!
      —————————————————————————

      The American People have long known that the Democrat Party cheats and lies — so they are used to their chicanery (the reason, many call them Democrooks).
      It is high time that they NOW see the GOP is no different — the Republicons fraud, cheating and strong-arming to “elect” Mitt Grosny, may finally have a televised exposure!
      ——————————————————————————–

      After the Tampa Convention — which will probably be the most memorable of spectacles this last 50 years — Ron Paul should take the best path that assures he’ll be part of the Presidential debates vs BO.

      Ron Paul MUST be part of the Presidential debates — so, people can judge the difference between a real Human and plastic sub-humans!
      —————————————————————————————

      It is not unprecedented for a candidate to be the standard bearer for more than one party (I think in 1896, William Jennings Bryan was the nominee of the Democrats, the Populist Party, and the Silver Republicans; and I believe in 1872, Horace Greeley was nominated by the Democrats and also by the Liberal-Republican Party).

      Doug Wead — hope you have similar strategy in mind!

    It explains how Bain Capital worked. They would buy SUCCESSFUL companies, with little down, borrowed huge amounts, saddling them with crushing debt, refused to continue equipment purchases or maintenance. Then they would pay themselves huge “management” fees.
    —————————————————–

    Some notable excerpts:

    “Romney is not a vulture capitalist, as Rick Perry says, since vultures eat dead carcasses,” notes Josh Kosman, who has written about the private equity business for 15 years. He’s “more of a parasitic capitalist, since he destroys profitable businesses.” (The host must be healthy enough to be force-fed all that debt, then slowly bled to death…until the parasites drain all the wealth for themselves).

    “When Bain was about to buy a company, its partners would hold a meeting. “He said that about half the time [they] would talk about cutting workers,” Kosman says. “They would never talk about adding workers. He said that job growth was never part of the plan.” That claim was buttressed by the Associated Press, which studied 45 companies bought by Bain during Romney’s first decade. It found that 4,000 workers lost their jobs. The real figure is likely thousands higher, since the analysis didn’t account for bankruptcies and factory and store closings.

    “The Armco plant closing involved more than the torching of 750 jobs, Morrow says. Contractors and suppliers collapsed. Workers’ children and widows lost health care and pension benefits. And while Bain received millions in tax breaks—paid for by the very people left holding the bag—Romney walked away millions richer.”

    There MUST NOT be a way allowed, for Rmoney to “debate” BO one-on-one — since this will be a Clowns’ Show (two liars trying to out-lie each other…when they are one-and-the-same HUMAN TRASH)!

    Ron Paul MUST be part of the DEBATES — so, he can clearly show up THESE politically trained monkeys for what they are — The ULTIMATE Destroyers of the USA!
    ————————————————————–

    Elect Ron Paul as President, if you want to Save America — vote for anyone else, if you WANT to DESTROY the USA!

    Superb parody of a “debate” btw Rmoney and BO — SHARE IT!

    (Note the exquisite sardonic touch — only one person is watching the two clowns….LOL!)
