Drudge and the neo-con commentariat are all abuzz with Condi Rice as VP talk this morning. I have one question: just how fucking dumb do they think we are? Romney might as well pick Jeb Bush, who at least has some experience in elective office. Obama's core strategy is to blame his failures on Bush. Putting Rice on the ticket would make that a lot easier. While her views on any real issues are a closely guarded secret, it is assumed she is another Colin Powell fake republican, eg pro abortion, pro affirmative action(duh), pro illegal immigration/amnesty, pro tax hikes and obviously in favor of the catastrophic Bush/neo-con foreign policy. In other words, for everything republican primary voters were against and which Romney assured them he was against. Drudge says she electrified the crowd at some Romney conference with a lot of empty rhetoric about America leading the world. Great, who's going to pay for all that? Bush broke us trying to do that. And how did it work out in the places we tried it, like Iraq and Afghanistan? If we have to have a moderate, let's get someone like Christie who can go toe to toe with the democrat thugs and media and who has actually been elected to something more significant than student council.
