Mitt Romney has hired an advisor to help him choose a Republican vice presidential candidate - and Fox & Friends wants to know "Who should we choose?"
Earlier today, the Fox & Friends show tweeted:
Apparently, the Fox & Friends show is willing to admit what others on Fox will not: That Fox News IS the communications arm of the GOP. (H/T Think Progress)
Yeah, she’s got that Palinesque quality but I doubt she’s got enough to win over GOPers in the Midwest or Far West—not even really sure she could help Romney with his GOP deficit in the South. (In his wins in Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin, Romney’s largely won in areas that should go to the Dems in the general election while Santorum won the more conservative GOP-oriented counties. In the South, Romney’s only won in Florida and Virginia; Florida is only tangentially a “Southern” state and he only won Virgina because it was only Romney and Ron Paul in the race—with Gingrich and Santorum in the race, Romney might have lost.)
She also sponsored the reauthorization of VAWA and she supports continued funding for Head Start. Obviously, with that track record, she’s going to be too “liberal” for the teabagging element of the GOP (that’s already not entirely thrilled with Mittens).
Then, there’s the matter that she’s NOT a “natural-born citizen.” As she states on HER website, “I was born in Havana, Cuba on July 1952.” If the “birthers” can’t accept Obama’s birth certificate as legitimate, they certainly can’t accept a VP candidate who openly acknowledges her birth on foreign soil to two Cuban citizens.
Nikki Haley. She’s everything the GOP is looking for
- governor of a Red State [SC]
- not Hispanic, but has brown skin [of Sikh Indian descent]
- spotty gubenatorial record
- allegations of both tax fraud and non-reporting of campaign contributions
- wrote a memoir described as “fiction” by both democrats and republicans
- may not last her term
Just like the last GOP Vice Presidential candidate. It’ll be like old times!
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who is a TRUE believer in all things Republican.
Who’s #2? Trump? Palin? Santorum?
No wonder they’re asking for other choices.
