Who Will Be Romney’s VP?
There’s more than a few hurdles to cross before Romney settles in against Obama, but none are bigger than his eventual choice of a VP candidate. Those other hurdles I mentioned? Well, he’s got to sit down with Santorum, lie and say he’ll burn Gays at the cross and keep condoms away from everyone under the age of 45, and secure his endorsement. Next up is Gingrich. Looks like Newt is looking for some help paying his campaign debts, and then he’ll offer up his endorsement. Let’s get back to the potential VP’s, though. Many names have floated around, including Rubio, Paul Ryan, Palin and Christie. Who is it going to be?
Matt: My pick is based more out of hope than anything else. Chris Christie recently downplayed his chances of accepting a VP bid, but admitted Romney can be a pretty convincing guy. Christie is the absolute best shot the Republicans have against Obama, which is looking to be an uphill climb. The outspoken Christie is the first Republican governor to lead New Jersey in 12 years. He’s very popular among Republicans who aren’t crazy, and even some Democrats who admit Obama’s time has run out. Christie did take an amusing jab at himself earlier yesterday, explaining how ridiculous he would look behind a President at the State of the Union. Can’t say that’s debatable, but I’d live with it.
Craig: Instead of focusing on “mainstream” candidates, I think more attention needs to be placed on the proverbial “darkhorse” candidates. While the name below isn’t currently in the “running”, everyone had to start somewhere. Why not CurrentGround?
The Instagram Guys - They have ca$h, time on their hands after their recent buyout, and could be the first Republicans to pull in the young, hip audience. Forget “change we can believe in”. How about sepia-toned FB pics that we can believe in”. Make the call, Mitt. Make the call
Jay: I would like to see Chris Christie as well, but let’s face it: he’s too damn fat. Romney’s rugged good looks and overflowing male sexuality cannot possibly offset the fact that Christie is a political manatee. Since Craig got to nominate the Instagram guys, I’d like to pull out a similarly zany candiate: Joe Pesci. He gets things done, no?
