The trait Romney needs in a vice president

Jul 6, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

The great irony of the vice-presidential selection process is that the decision about who could be a heartbeat away from the presidency seems to have everything to do with electability and very little to do with leadership .

A person who will garner votes.

Marco Rubio could make the difference. Imagine him going into spanish speaking parts of our communities and telling people that in order to survive in America you will need jobs.

Illegal immigration can be fixed, but after it's fixed, people will need a successful economy and jobs.

Every republican needs to hold up a sign and say that their relatives were immigrants, too.

Republicans want LEGAL IMMIGRATION. What's wrong with following the federal law?

Obama has personally decide that HE is the arbitrator of what laws our country will enforce and what laws HE doesn't want enforced.

Obama is NOT KING of the USA. He's a shallow boy-man.

A few Traits Real Americans want in any Elected official:

1. Fiscally Responsible. Not a Debt Machine like Obama or Bush.

2. Honesty. Not a Liar like Obama, Joe Biden, Bush or Nixon.

3. Relevant Experience. Someone with a history running an entity with proven experience. Not like Obama or Biden.

4. Straight Talk. Someone who sees at least 3 sides of the issue, states the facts, and makes a case based on those instead of what his Campaign Contributors demand. That excludes flip flopping, lying Obama and Biden.

5. Able to Work with others. Someone that understands fellow Americans Are NOT the Enemy. Not someone like Obama who stated fellow Americans ARE The Enemy that must be punished.

Pulling from the US Senate or House is a Mistake. Just look how bad Senators Obama and idiot Biden have turned out.


You want someone with a proven track record running government and/or a business.


Pulling from one of the lowest rated government bodies is Not what Americans want. Select from Business Leaders and/or Governors.

Other Traits:


6. Proud of Their Country. Someone that KNOWS We are the best Country on the Planet and will dedicate themselves to restoring prosperity for us and our children. Not someone like the Obama's Who have "NEVER BEEN PROUD of their Country" before winning an election.

7. Work Ethic. Someone who will dedicate him or herself to the Job at hand. Roll up their sleeves and get positive measurable results for the people's prosperity. Not someone golfing over 100 times, going on Multi-Million Dollar Vacations all the time and flying their Dog in a private jet like the disgusting Obama's.

8. Public Safety. Someone who does Not Put the Public at risk or block traffic for hours just to show their face at a rotten campaign fundraiser. Not someone like Joe Biden who runs over pedestrians and has Killed 1 American Citizen. Not someone like Obama who continually disturbs city traffic then sticks the City with the Security bill to hold Private Fundraisers for Millionaires and Billionaires.

President Obama told a great story about a childhood vacation today during a stop in small town Middle American that reminded me and so many in the audience of their childhood vacations…

Family staying at a motel, hopefully with HBO, and you would be ecstatic if it had a pool, no matter how small it was. It took you back to family times and how the little things were so big. And going down the hall, or to the first floor to get ice from the ice machine was great… and those were the best of times. Romney will never be able to relate to average everyday Americans the way President Obama can.

Will you shut the fuck up? The lack of jobs and the lack of prosperity has nothing to do with President Obama, or even Former president Bush. America has remained in their position in the rat race, while China, India, and Nigeria are gaining power and prestige. China is rapidly growing in wealth, India is so far behind either. Nigeria is recruiting many experts in academia and engineering fields, the gold mines for innovation. What are American teens doing, majoring in art and fucking each other, while the international students come here, master their craft, and then take their skill back to their homeland. Corporations out source jobs to foreign countries, b/c it's cheaper for them, and they don't complain about pay.

And you're blaming the last 20 years of power decline on a guy that hasn't even been in power for a full 4 YEARS? You don't have much pride in this great nation if you dimish patiotism to "finger pointing" and "scape goat declarations", and you embarrass me as a conservative by sounding so uneducated on the world around you.

America was around long before one man, and one man does not have the power to make it do anything on his own, the nation's people and lack of unity are the problem.

Agree that moving the needle in votes is important but Rubio should stay in the Senate then move into a governorship where he can hone executive leadership skills.

Obama & Biden are perfect examples of how bad it gets when you're just a rotten career politician with No Experience Running Anything. Romney should Not pull anyone from a Poorly Rated Congress. He needs to look away from Washington unlike the Jackasscrats who continually look for more Washington Crooks.

A good place for Gov Romney to start with to find a VP would be to find some anti-bidens. Then pick someone from this group who has the best executive experience and who has run something successful. Someone who isn't a walking gaffe machine. Someone who hasn't necessarily been a professional career politician. Someone who doesn't believe in the tax and spend demoratic method of buying votes. Someone who is a true patriotic American who wants to bring back America from its decline.
