No Windsock Romney for Republican VP Candidate

A Romney fan commented on my last post. I hope it’s just wishful thinking on the part of some who have bought all of the barely coherent Romney conservative froth, But, most every commenter mentions Romney as a strong possibility for McCain’s Vice-Presidential candidate. I think that would be a big mistake. I think McCain’s campaign is making a mistake in concentrating on trying to heighten the aggravation of Hillary voters and focusing on Biden’s history of Obama comments and “gotcha” blunders, instead of on vital policy distinctions and their implications. And as far as Biden’s Obama comments are concerned, they ain’t seen nothin’ till they see what Democrats whip our on Mitt Romney. And Romney has shown me no analytical facility to make those cases to Independent voters.

Here’s the comment and my response:

I have been conservative all of my life, and am very driven by systematic thinking. I saw Romney for all of the campaign and at my state convention. And, I don't see it. I see boilerplate recitation of a windsock measure of conservative hot-buttons, just like his windsock recitation of boilerplate liberal hot-buttons in MA.

Obviously, he's a handsome man with innovative business inclinations, and a great family. But, he came (pragmatically) to decisions in his forties and fifties that I came to systematically as a teenager. Somewhat ironically after his primary season attacks on McCain, the only hope I see for a selection of Romney for VP is McCain's own propensity to occasional philosophical ambiguity.

Greetings Larry!

What is your take on McCain's tapping Sarah Palin for running mate?

Larry said...

She's TERRIFIC! I'm working on something to post, tomorrow..

Larry, I've said a lot about the remarkable Gov. Palin and her wonderful family. She "destroyed" the Obama bounce. She will be our V-P I believe and also someday our President. She stands for everything that's good about our country. The reception she received in Washington, PA, 30 miles from Pittsburgh, was ecstatic. Her 7-year-old (you get one Palin, you get them all, live with it) was a little frightened in Dayton, but in Washington she was waving and clapping (Sarah-like) to the crowd. Larry, at 2:30 a.m. on Friday, talking with an in-the-know Republican, we said, "It's Sarah." So, 8 hours before the mainstream, I put up: "McCains Selects Sarah Palin." I got a huge number of visitors -- tens of thousands. It will never happen again,but it was fun. The BBC called me up! A great day for America. I have said that in the Biden debate, she will wipe the floor with him. Her children will have a great story to tell their children. She and Cindy McCain are in Minn. but with no John McCain.

I didn't think it would be this year, but I've been saying that Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal WOULD be on a Republican ticket within 12 years. If they win and McCain retires after one term, it can be Palin/Jindal in 2012. Tell me: how could that ticket lose? Barack WHO?

If they both served two terms, it would get me to my seventies. The country could be utterly renewed. Congress would surely be Republican during that time. And, they wouldn't let it corrupt rotten.

You know, a certain despairing for the country had set in for a lot of conservatives who assumed the spark might never return of people of thought and action and statesmanship. Both of them have it. John McCain about whom I once held so many questions, may have lit one heck of a fuse! He really couldn't have made a better pick.
