I'm anticipating a rout next Tuesday. So permit me to think about a Romney Dream Team Cabinet. You can add your own. I'm sure in a Romney WH everything is on the table. I look forward to getting rid of gov't waste. Hopefully the following people as secretaries will transition these depts into something that promotes success, productivity, the pursuit of happiness etc.
Dept of Energy (if deemed to still be needed) Sarah Palin Dept of Education (same a above) Newt Guingrich Dept of Commerce Herman Cain Attorney General Rudy Guliani Secretary of State Condi Rice Dept of Defense General Petreus (I'll give him another chance)
Expect Romney’s cabinet to look exactly like the Bush cabinets. It’ll be mostly the same people.
The original purpose for the formation of the Dept of Energy was to find ways to develop energy independence. Keep it but on day one make that the only reason for it's existence.
I’d like to see Luigi Zingales in a Romney cabinet, either at Treasury or at Commerce.
Definitely Palin at Energy, even if it’s just to oversee turning out the lights before most of its functions devolve to Commerce, with a few going elsewhere.
Really, Condi Rice at State again? I’d like to see someone hard-nosed, clear-eyed about the threat posed by Islam, and not afflicted with Slavophobia. I’d really like to see a volte face in our Balkan policy. And, unless it’s Rumsfeld or Cheney, I’m also not interested in any Bush administration retreads for policy reasons, and for 2016 political reasons it’s probably better to not have either of them either.
Newt should be voted in as Speaker of the House. (since you need not be a member to be speaker and since he did well there once before)
General Petraeus first lost favor with me for supporting the horrible ROE in Afghanistan when McCrystal was dismissed. He lost another chit when he joined this awful administration. He lost even more by not breaking with the same on Benghazi. And then you want to give him another chance?
Are yu suffering from battered wife syndrome?
Guess we’ll have to wait and see, I highly doubt it will be what you claim.
Ye of little faith ~
Rob Portman for Treasury
Sheriff Joe Arpaio or Darrell Issa for Homeland Security
Jeb Bush for Education
John Sununu as FCC chair, and Romney should let him loose on the MSM, esp. Soledad O’Brien
I thought it was supposed to work with the EPA and Interior to thwart energy development.
The hell, you say! Energy Independence- what a concept!
SP could do that, shutter the EPA and get the Department of Inferior back in line. 3 Cabinet Secretaries into 1. That’s up her alley I believe.
A bunch o’ RINO’s more likely
Dream Team (The Romney Cabinet)
We need to, like, actually win, first.
Sarah Palin, DOE. John Bolton, State. Chris Kyle, DoD.
So what in Romney’s overwhelmingly liberal big government record make you have any faith in him?
I disagree, Palin = Department of Interior
We seem to have a lot of “moderates” at FR these days.
Condi Rice, Jeb Bush, Rudy?
I thought the point was to get rid of the liberals.
I have to say no to Condi Rice for State. Too much Foggy Bottom Kool Aid. John Bolton would be a better choice. Petraus for DOD? Again, no. Besides, by law ten years must pass after he leaves military service before he is eligible for SecDef.
Palin will never have have a place in a Romney administration. It was Team Romney that was sticking GOP-E daggers in her back since even before the 2008 election to clear the way for Mitt. There’ll be no love lost there.
I expect a LOT of people with resumes saying they are Moslem and are seeking a job soon in Washington DC.
You noticed that too, huh?
Tell me about it. Jeb Bush at Education? That department should be abolished. Jeb will be handing out free college tuitions to illegals at the border.
