Posted on 07/31/2012 5:32:41 AM PDT by Reality_News
As we are nearing the long awaited "Who Shot JR Moment",It's safe to assume it's down to Ryan,Portman,Rubio and McDonnell. Portman is considered the "Vanilla Candidate" and Romney would choose him if he desperately needed Ohio.But keep in mind,Neighboring McDonnell could do the trick. As we all know,Romney is going to choose someone who is very prepared to be President god forbid anything happens to Mittens,and also a VP who could run a very succsesful campaign in 2016. McDonnell could help carry Virginia,Ohio,The Carolina's and maybe even Pennsylvania. he would definitley "Energize And Reload The GOP Ticket".
Never heard of him.
i know I’m in the minority here (especially with all the Romney haters) but I think any of these four would be excellent choices. If it is true as the author thinks that McDonnell would help in all of those neighboring swing states, then he is sort of the obvious choice. Personally I doubt that premise...but if it is true, then that would be great. Mc is also sufficiently conservative to carry the torch into the future.
mcdonnell does not qualify according to scumbag the dick cheney. mcdonnell only has TWO years as governor and I expect cheney to be on ABC with the same crap that he said about Sarah Palin.
uh yea, lets have twins run for prez and vp.
McDonnell seems like an able competent man
Too bad he isnt on top of the ticket instead of that walking cadaver Willard
I live in N.Va..... He hasn’t been on TV in a loong time so i looked up some onld clips:
Your insane hatred will melt your brain, oh, it already has.
A man’s principles are founded on the bedrock of his beliefs. Mitt’s beliefs are of the L Ron Hubbard sort.
Thanks, you saved me the effort. I may have missed something, because I didn’t think the unnamed was one of the usual suspects.
No, Cheney won’t say the same thing about him that he said about Sarah Palin. Because just about the only commonality in their backgrounds is the two years into their governorship.
McDonnell served 21 yrs in the Army. He served 14 yrs in the VA House. He served as Va Attorney General. He is head of a prominent state on the doorstep of DC, which is quite different from Alaska. Not to mention he’s a lawyer and went to the “right” schools.
Sarah Palin was in Cheney’s view not ready for what she was suddenly pushed into. I don’t agree she wasn’t ready to govern. I do agree she wasn’t prepared to handle the extreme political/media situation. I would guess Cheney would say he thinks McDonnell is ready. But who knows...nobody knows until they’re THERE.
Governor Robert F. McDonnell - Short Bio
Never heard of McDonnell.
He is not qualified. He like Crispy Creme Christie have only been in the big house for a couple of years.
Isn’t he the same guy who screwed his constituents by keeping people off the ballot with last minute shenanigans?
