Romney Tops McCain's VP List?

Romney Tops McCain's VP List?


That’s the report coming out today.

Mitt Romney would be the “safe choice,” the guy you go with to shore up a range of weaknesses, not the least of which being the economy. But choosing Romney would sacrifice the opportunity to choose someone dynamic enough to shake up this race. Romney might help bring out more of the conservative base but he won’t win over many if any independents currently sitting on the fence.

I hope John McCain ends up with a more daring choice. But I understand why he may be leaning to Romney.

    Well, he DID get elected Governor of Massachusetts as Republican. So he MUST have had quite a bit of independent appeal at one point.

    Now, does he have any left after pandering to socons for a year? Hmmm…. .

    I think Romney does make strong sense from at least one PoV. If he can talk tacks about a sound national economic policy, that makes it harder for Obama’s to keep his pie-in-the-sky stuff teflon. I think Romney can sell “Obama’s an economic nightmare waiting to happen” much better than any of the other names I have heard floated. I also think Crist would be a good choice.

    Won’t they have to spend a lot of time and money letting us know what Romney stands for now? I am sure that all of his policy positions have surely changed since the beginning of the year when we saw him last.

    I agree–they were changing almost hourly while he was running…Lord knows what they are now

    Don’t we need someone on the ticket who knows something about economics? Who on the national scene besides Mitt has had some success proving he knows how the economy works? American are hurting in the pocketbook. For goodness sake, it is time to be practical and sensible!! Those who say he changes his position a great deal should look more closely at Obama!!! He changes every minute!!!
