IMHO, Paul Ryan is the best choice, based on a deadly combo of charisma and brains. He also brings solid cred on the economy, and adds a touch of young fire to the ticket.
I really like West (how can you not??), and Portman is decent, yet Rob is sort of bland, actually. Don’t see Portman exciting the ticket, or being an effective attack guy on the trail. He’s capable….and that’s about it.
As much as I would HATE to lose Ryan in Congress (and I would), I think he brings more ‘ooomfff’ to the ticket than the other guys, with West a close 2nd, and the Rubio probably 3rd (Marco needs to finish his 1st term in the Senate before he runs elsewhere).
However, if I had to put $$$ on the wager, I’d bet on ….Rick Santorum being the pick: he already has a built up following, he’s Catholic (which offsets the potential Mormon thing), and he’s smart/capable/experienced.
Rick is my bet, ….but I’m hoping for Ryan.

I agree with ya on Ryan and Rick. Rick was me and my wife’s pick for Pres. Whoever he picks needs to be conservative to very conservative to drag him right when he has a liberal flashback, and it will of course gain him more votes. And we cannot afford to lose any R’s from Congress. Period.

I believe Ryan’s seat would stay “R”; I just don’t think you CAN replace him, with anyone. It’s a trade-off with him: is he more dangerous in Congress, or as VP and a future Pres? It is completely debatable: I can argue strongly for either point.
I have no problems with Rick, other than his occassional habit of coming of as whiny. He’s a complete classy guy, though: he just needs to be aware of his tone. He certainly got tons better towards the end of his run than he was at the start.
Either guy, or West, would be fine by me.
My fear is they’ll choose Portman, who is ‘safe’, ….and as exciting as a dry bologna sandwhich.
Please, please, please…..not Portman.
06/17/2012 at 10:41 pm
Yeah, Portman is like watching paint dry. I like him right where he’s at. My wife and I voted for Portman in 2010. I just want a conservative period for reasons already stated. And your right, Ryan cannot be replaced with someone of his skill and tact. Being from Wisconsin, he has a “masters” in liberal progressive BS. He knows all the under handed tricks that are being devised just to throw him off his game.

I did forget one person in all this, although I still put him as a bit of a long shot:
Tim is a great guy, and was a good governor. But, but, but…..he is a step up from Portman, but he falls short of Ryan, Christie or West in the enthusiasm factor, and he is not equal to Santorum in current following.
If Portman is ‘vanilla’, then Pawlenty is double ‘vanilla’:
Good, I suppose …but certainly not GREAT.
06/18/2012 at 2:14 pm
I can’t argue with that. I like Pawlenty also. I think he would make a good vice president also, I think these politicians should work more and b seen less, we really need someone to excite the voter for all the right reasons
06/18/2012 at 2:20 pm
Well, no president has EVER been seen as much as the current guy, President Photo-Op.
And you’re right: need someone that understands the governs-best-who-governs-least credo.
That’d be a change……..

I love it when Rush calls him Barack Kardashian, because that’s exactly how he views the presidency, a celebrity popularity contest. You would think someone in his “smartest” people in the room advisors would whisper OVEREXPOSURE in his ear. People were sick of hearing him before his first 100 days were up.

He wouldn’t have listened. He is narcissistic, and no, that’s not just an insult. I believe he has the clinical disorder.
“Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance and a deep need for admiration. Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
–Believing that you’re better than others
–Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness
–Exaggerating your achievements or talents
–Expecting constant praise and admiration
–Believing that you’re special and acting accordingly
–Failing to recognize other people’s emotions and feelings
–Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
–Taking advantage of others
–Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
–Being jealous of others
–Believing that others are jealous of you”

I definitely agree with that. He certainly is head over heels in love with himself. And that give him some other problems, Like defense mechanisms and habitual lying.

Patriot: you OK?
Your keyboard and your space bar were having a battle, and the space bar lost.
06/19/2012 at 9:06 am
The reply box on my end was tiny… couldn’t see the words I was typing on my phone. Lol
06/19/2012 at 9:07 am
Oh busted! That is a perfect example of texting and driving! Lol…..
06/19/2012 at 9:13 am
Babe…. don’t tell everyone. 😉
06/19/2012 at 9:22 am
Looks like one of those id 10 t
Errors….just an observation…lol
06/19/2012 at 9:12 am
No worries: I’ve done the same thing.
However, it looks like you fixed your comment now, so folks will look at MINE now and think,
“what is he talking about?”…..
06/19/2012 at 9:16 am
I didn’t want to look We Todd ed.
06/19/2012 at 9:20 am
Wow! That’s politically incorrect. 🙂
06/19/2012 at 9:17 am
I could have lied and said my computer had an id 10 T error.
06/19/2012 at 9:23 am
Thinking on same wave length …scary. (id 10 t error)

Good news JTR http://tiny.iavian.net/lw check it out. Drudge Report story says Paul Ryan is being vetted for VP nomination.
06/23/2012 at 3:58 pm
Thanks for the heads-up, Patriot!
I went and found an article that discussed it, once I read your comment.
Ryan just makes sense.
As I said before, it will kill me to not have him in Congress, but if he’s VP, there’s no one in the country who can bring more street cred and flat-out smarts to the discussion than Ryan can.
I’d vote for that ticket twice (…and if I were a Democrat, I actually COULD, too…).

Hmnnn…anybody remember Herbert Hoover’s Veep?
