Van Jones: Romney Should Pick Condi Rice as VP and 'Watch the Obama Campaign Go Crazy'
Newsbusters ^

Posted on 07/12/2012 8:00:18 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

When the Roundtable discussion on ABC's This Week Sunday predictably turned to who Mitt Romney should pick as his running mate if he seals the Republican presidential nomination, former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones made an interesting observation.

"You want to do something bold, put Condoleezza Rice on the ticket and watch the Obama campaign go crazy" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

That’s true. It just gets me how many (even here on FR!) think so highly of her.

She’s pro choice so that makes her a bad choice.

Someone else here in FR commented that all she would do is tie Romney to the George Bush administration. Bad idea.

She’s not a politician and not a business person..she is an academic. She is smart and well spoken, but she is weird by most standards. No husband and her only boy friend was George Bush. No insult intended, but she just isn’t what we need to swing votes our way. I do know people who dealt with her directly at Stanford..and they really didn’t like her personality.

Jones is right.. Myth and Condi are both flaming RINOs...
Backed up by John Roberts who is also progressive like Newt...

America is quite screwed up presently.. and can’t determine whether its socialist or communist.. which are both the same ideological thing..

“but she is weird by most standards”

My recollection of hearing her speak, it seemed as if she were trying to pass a hard stool.

[ I love Condi, but how exactly conservative is she? Is she like Colen Powell or like Sarah Palin? ]

Sarah PAlin is not a RINO...
How do I know, I asked her!...
She knows what a RINO is, and isn’t...

Condi is Colin Powell in a dress. Smart, moderate ... and would let Obama run against “BUSH”.

Big mistake if Romney picked her. No, liberals would NOT go crazy. They attacked and demonized Condi Rice and treated her like trash when she worked for Bush. THEY ALWAYS DO THAT. Never underestimate the liberal meanness and double standards.

“I want an unabashed, hardline conservative to help get our nations fiscal house in order.”

Gov Bobby Jindhal is the closest to that ... IF ROMNEY PICKS HIM. Sarah Palin on the Bayou.

The recommendation by Van Jones is a huge huge negative.

The VP position needs one of four, Newt, Cain, West or Palin. IMO and not very humble about it, no one else will do. DO YOU HEAR ME Romney!

LOL I almost used the FR spelling for huge. (hugh)

Well, Romney would score a double. A woman and a black. Obama campaign would crap in its pants. However, Condi is deeply tied to Bush 43...

I wouldn’t trust her with the deciding vote in the senate.

Romney’s veep choice doesn’t matter to me in the least. What’s disturbing about the whole discussion is the number of people who are unashamedly thinking in terms of race now.

In 2016, will they be looking for a homosexual to “balance” the ticket?

Or a muslim?

One of the “consolation points” put forward regarding Romney is that we’ll at least be able to pressure him to do the right thing. It would appear however that we are increasingly inclined to think in terms of the trend, rather than the principle. As if Romney needs our help to determine which way the wind blows.

Romney, no less than Obama, is a symptom of our degenerative disease. Americans raised him to his present station. They are culpable.

He is a liar who believes in nothing but the stupidity of the public; no less than Barack Obama.

Obama is already POTUS and has this election gamed, his people in place and all of them with a long rap sheet for fraud, corruption and election rigging.

Unless conservatives storm the convention and oust this Republicrat chimera, the election is already lost.

But you all just carry on about which melanist would peel off a few undecided leaners.

So-called conservatives play by the rules, while the leftists own the damn game.

If you want to see 'em go "foaming at the mouth crazy" pick Allen West or Alan Keyes!
Reminds me of Jethro on Beverly Hillbillys. Didn't know if he wanted to be a brain surgeon or a short order cook.

If you don't follow me, I'll spell it out for you:

Allen West is the brain surgeon (the stellar choice).

Alan Keyes is the short order cook (the absolute loser).
