Skip to comments.Romney: I Will Pick A Conservative Running Mate
Posted on 07/18/2012 5:28:41 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot
During a Bowling Green, Ohio, town hall on Wednesday, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney assured a tea party supporter that his pick for VP will be "a conservative," and responded quickly to an "angry mom" who called the president a "monster" that he wouldn't use that term.

Regardless of who he picks, I WILL NOT VOTE FOR ROMNEY to be POTUS. Even IF he did pick a true conservative, which I doubt, I would just lose respect for the “conservative” and still won’t vote for Romney.
GOP Establishment.....GET A CLUE....my vote can only be secured by dumping Romney and getting somone more conservative to be the nominee. IF Sarah Palin couldn’t help McCain win (and by comparison Romney makes McCain look like a rock rib conservative), then why would a conservative like Palin help Romney? They won’t, and I will not drink Romney Cyanide Koolaid.
I have voted for EVERY GOP nominee for POTUS in the general election since 1976. However, this time the GOP has strayed too far for me to follow.
I WILL VOTE FOR conservative Republicans in the House and Senate and other “down ticket” positions. However, nothing can get me to support Romney. I WILL vote third party to send a message and to ensure that IF Romney or Obama win...they won’t have a large mandate. Also, IF enough conservative Republicans can increase their numbers in the House and get control of the Senate. THEN we can negate Obama’s destruction of the country....maybe even impeach him for exceeding the powers of the executive branch. However, Romney’s election will negate any House or Senate gains, and when he does foolish things, which he will, the bulk of them WILL NOT OPPOSE HIM WHEN THEY SHOULD BECAUSE OF “PARTY LOYALTY.” That is NOT a risk I will take. I guess I only trust House and Senate GOP members when either they oppose a liberal/dictator Democrat like Obama, or when there is a REAL conservative Republican as POTUS.
That would open up such a lovely Constitutional can of worms...
I still think Romney is trying to get Governor Jerry Brown to be his running mate.
it will be an etch a sketch “conservative”. Christie, rubio, and jindal are out. Now some mumbles about portman out, which leaves pawlenty, mcdonnell.
Mitt's Mormon. It won't be a woman.
ditto....word for word
2012 - Romney: Obama is a nice guy but he is a little over his head
It will be if I have a say.
It will be nice if Romney keeps his word. I’d like to have one conservative on the ticket.
This. It's like having Michael Moore rhapsodizing on the topic of his favorite weight loss program.
Great conservative, but not a NBC...
But a very strong willed capital-C Conservative. At least.
For a one-word description, I prefer,
Communist is a synonym for monster.
He could also substitute “Lady GaGa” for monster too.
Please represent me by choosing someone who was born here on American soil to parents who were both American citizens at the time of your VP pick's birth. And has the paperwork to prove it, just like the rest of us.
It's the only way I'll vote for you.
Please, sir, do not make this controversial or for the sake of political expediency or political correctness.
We've had more than enough of that, now we need some healing. Can you please do that for us or are you here to rip us apart like the rest of them?
Most likely he'll pick a "conservative" which is to the right of him. Perhaps Susan Collins. Maybe Olympia Snowe. Certainly not a John Boehner - he would be far too "conservative" for Mittens.
Yeah, why do our guys have absolutely no balls whatsoever?!?
I really hate milktoast.
If anything this puts Jesus’ quotes about why he vomits out the lukewarm people into context. I already understood it, but this kind of stuff really crystallizes why He feels that way. Of course He is talking in a faith context, not political, but there’s values and principles behind governing philosophies and being direct and clear.
That is not my preference, but Rubio is my prediction.
Not voting will be the cause of Obama getting in..............Remember evil triumphs when good men (or women) do nothing.
It is sad to see you roll over any play dead instead of voting out Obama and then taking on the GOP to do right.
If Obama is re elected it won’t be the stupid cattle mentality folks of the left I will blame but it will be the do nothings on the right.. I WANT this “Abort them until birth man voted out of office” and I ask you to please reconsider........Please
