I think Romney is going to ask RP to be his VPSubmitted by 10K on Fri, 05/18/2012 - 22:00
For days I've been wondering why the camp released the news concerning RP's strategy, and why they released the news when they did. I just couldn't figure it out. Finally, tonight, the reason came to me. It's not a new concept, but I think it explains everything...everything! Romney is going to ask RP to be his VP.
You might counter and say...wait a second, RP has always indicated that his views and Romney's views were too far apart, and I'll agree. RP, however, always left the door open to further talks. What if Romney softens his position on few elements, and expands his position on a couple of more to pull in RP. Talk about a consolidated party!
Romney spends months throwing red meat to hard core Republicans, and then towards the end, brings in the RP camp to solidify the base plus the independent vote. I have to admit, it's a stroke of political strategic genius.
Did you see the backdrop of Romney's speech the day after RP's announcement - it was an electronic national debt counter. Get used to it. My prediction - Romney is going to sound more and more like RP moving forward, and that's not a bad thing.
