Once Burned, Twice Shy

A story in today’s WaPo* about Mitt’s Veep pick says that he is likely to choose someone “he sees as competent and ready to be president.”

You’d kind of assume that would go without saying, but not after 2008.

So that’s a relief, maybe we’ll get someone who knows what the Federal Reserve is, what role Germany played in WWII, why there is a North and South Korea, that the Queen doesn’t run the British government, that Saddam Hussein didn’t attack us on 9/11, etc.

After the Palin debacle, there is a concern about some potential candidates who are seen as inexperienced — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez.

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is seen as tainted by his support for vaginal probe ultrasounds, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is seen as bombastic.

The Romney campaign sounds like Goldilocks.

I don’t think Mitt will pick a woman.  I don’t think that’s because of Palin, I think that’s because of him.

  1. His picking of a vp candidate is all form and no substance; because he has to, not because he has a snowball in hell’s chance of becoming president.
    Paint your car elevator house on the west coast white Mitt. It’s the only white house you’ll ever live in unless you build another one, because you have the money to do so.
    You prick!
