I think Romney is going to ask RP to be his VP

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.

People pleeeeeze stop feeding this troll

This posts and others like it are intended to distract us from the important business happening this weekened.

A troll with a full belly will keep trolling to attempt to divide the movement and distract. Lets' starve this one out, and the others.

How about President Paul

How about President Paul asking Romney to be his driver ?

Be gone, trolls!!!!!

In order for this to happen Mittens would have to be the nominee. Ron Paul will walk out of Tampa with the marbles and I rather doubt that he will pick Romney as a running mate, either.

Ain't gonna' happen!

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.

Other way round

Have Paul offer the VP slot to Mittens. See if he bites. Then change your mind, and pick a real VP.

If wishes were horses

beggars would ride, as the old expresion goes.

I hardly think that Ron Paul's dream of retirement is taking a meaningless and useless position at Romney's side as Mitt destroys the rest of our freedoms.

So Mitt can try it.... but I don't think RP will bite.

...he can ask all he wants.

...he can ask all he wants. I won't vote for Mitt Romney even if Paul is veep - which he won't be because he is a principled man.

Really?

I think that idea is hysterically funny.

However,

If Ron Paul accepts, then he isn't the man I thought he was.

If he rejects it, which I believe he would, then what difference does it make whether Romney asks him or not? Is that supposed to make RP supporters feel like we're on the "A" list?

I do not think Ron Paul

would even consider Romney for VP he is not even qualified as a dog catcher. Romney is a empty muppet puppet a hopless waster.

People, here are couple of positive threads for our movement which expose Romney. Instead of propagating this garbage thread, pls see these:

Rand will be the VP choice

However, anything is possible when the convention rolls around (Ron could be the nominee or VP as well).

We are at least going to change the party platform. Some of us have to mature a little.....

Some of us have to get over

Some of us have to get over their anti Obama obsession and realize that Romney is Rombama.

No

Romney is looking at felony charges. Ron Paul 2012 !

If 'RP' is Rand Paul then I'd say you're

If 'RP' is Rand Paul then I'd say you're probably right.

I didn't think this way before, but the recent bizzare campaign moves and the inclusion of Rand being mentioned in MN speech and Rand appearing with his father at the Austin TX event have me thinking it's more likely.

Also after the JB politico interview, Rand wrote his email about contributing to the mb.

No way.

There is no way this is going to happen. Even if Romney offered, I can't see RP accepting.

To make this work...

Romney would have to allow Ron Paul to hand pick rigorous constitutional conservatives for key cabinet positions and get commitments on overturning NDAA, individual liberty, and other positions that he could be held to.

Also there are 3500 - 4500 presidential appointed positions for the many government agencies. These change with every new administration. Most of these would have to be people who would have a mandate to shut down the unconstitutional agency they are assigned to within 6 - 12 months.

I just don't see it myself.

Romney might ask him, but he

Romney might ask him, but he wouldn't accept it. I'm sure of this. Even if Romney softened some of his positions, theirs views and beliefs are way to different for him to be able to accept it. Dr. Paul is one of the few politicians who actually feel bad when they compromise their beliefs... There's a reason we say he's incorruptible. :)

What is the role of VP of

What is the role of VP of USA. This position has gone way out of intentions in the constitution.
In short by original constitution if Ron Paul win over Obama then Obama should become VP. But growing influence of political parties in nominations for office of President change this. It become impossible practically to nominate and elect civilians without party backing and partisan divide.
12 amendment from 1804 finally throw VP position in hands of political parties.
From 1804 to 1940 it was as a consolation prize for the party's minority faction done at a conventions.
The first Presidential candidate to choose his Vice Presidential candidate was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1940.
VP Dick Cheney under president G.W. Bush change nature of VP finally to become extension of presidency.
Looking back on the VP and the direction of role under Bush,I can't see Ron Paul to limit himself,and can't see Romney to change role of VP. Romney is Bush administration and naturally Romney will find his Dick.

If Ron Paul is offered and accepts

then it is time to find a new spiritual leader for this movement. Ron knows what Romney is. No way he accepts. Rand maybe cause he is a sell out unlike his dad. But Ron will never betray this movement like that even if he has not fired Jesse Benton yet.

You should be a detective

let me know when you get a clue.

"It would be real hard for me to accept a vice presidency in an administration that endorsed everything I didn't believe in. I wouldn't be able to do that, and right now there aren't too many on the Republican side who are advocating nonintervention overseas." -Ron Paul, 2007

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

If Ron Paul is on the ticket as Romney's VP

I will write in Ron Paul's name. As President.

that will not happen

dont you know that ron paul supporters are possible terrorist, even of romney doesnt believe that he has got to wonder.

My worry is that the rnc will make ron paul have mitt be his vice president.

That wouldn't bother me since

That wouldn't bother me since the VP doesn't do anything anyway

I agree

that's why I don't think RP should pick Judge Nap as VP. It would be a sad waste of talent and patriotism.

Only if Romney is 10 points behind in August

He is extremely risk-averse and Paul is a high-risk choice for him since Obama will seize on it to paint Romney as a drug legalizer, weak on defense, tax-cutting extremist and all the usual crap thrown at Ron. Stranger things have happened, like Reagan picking Bush despite his "voodoo economics" slam, but Bush was viewed as helping moderate Reagan's image. Still, if Romney is running behind he may throw the Hail Mary pass and hope Ron brings in the youth, Hispanic, independent, libertarian, and anti-war Democrat vote.

I know that people are totally against this in this post, BUT

it might be a way to get Ron Paul in a position of power. Maybe it's a terrible idea, but if we don't have him as the captain of our ship, I feel our ship will flounder without his leadership.

No, I don't like Mitt, in fact, I think he's a mean and totally fake.

No, I'm not a F-ING troll. I have busted my butt for his 2008 campaign. I put up so many signs that I injured my thumb from the stapler!
