I don’t like Romney as POTUSA and especially CinC, not having taken his turn in actual armed defense of the USA. However I am not as rigid as you seem to be mainly because I strongly believe Obama and all of his enablers are a real and dangerous threat for the USA which overrides my angst about Mitt. With this said if Romney does not choose to go with an established conservative person, someone of a Tea Party attitude, and if he chooses someone of the Mormon background, my chips are off the table. As to the Mormon thing, I have good friends who are Mormons but having two people of the same faith on the ticket is bit too much for me and would probably mean the election is down the tubes.
“....I strongly believe Obama and all of his enablers are a real and dangerous threat for the USA which overrides my angst about Mitt...”
I also strongly believe Obama is a dangerous threat; every Romney opposer knows that. However, I (and other like me) realize that Romney is just as big a threat...in different & similiar ways.
Actually, it is totally irelevant who Romney picks...he will still be Romney...a VP pick is JUST for show.
