Aw, only 2.3% for Kelly Ayotte? Aw :(
Also kinda surprised Rubio is that far down
If Romney picks Portman I think that Obama would say the following: Robert Portman was the "mastermind" of the Bush economic policies.Bob Portman will take the US economy and drive it into the ditch.If you like the George Bush economy, then go ahead and vote for Romney/Portman.
I still like to see Herman Cain debate Obama.
"Robert Portman was the "mastermind" of the Bush economic policies"...Well arbitrage that would mean an economy that had more people with jobs, somewhat less debt, and a host of other differences...Mind you I'm not exactly running the cheerleading squad for Bush here but the very last thing Obama needs to do is talk about this economy...Well if Romney picks either one of those R.I.N.O.s he'll lose at least 15% of the people who would've possibly voted for him...
well the trick is going to be to pick someone who will get him votes from independents and not lose his base votes.That's not going to be easy because the politics of the independents is way LEFT of the base these days.So Romney wants to ADD votes while not losing his base.
juandos Obama would be happy to talk about the economy, if he could blame it all on Bush. A Rob Portman running mate (for Romney) might give Obama that chance. Logic and reality having nothing to do with this. It's about emotion and deception.

"if he could blame it all on Bush. A Rob Portman running mate (for Romney) might give Obama that chance"...Naw arbitrage, that made up nonsense of blaming Bush aint flying no more and in fact its been that way since Sept. of '11...People who were paying attention and who did a little homework know who the culprits and their political party was that started the economic problems...
juandos:"People who were paying attention and who did a little homework know who the culprits and their political party was that started the economic problems..."Memory fails me. Was it the Demublicans or the Republicrats? I often get them confused as they look so much alike after they're in office for awhile.They do say different things while campaigning, but eventually it seems that they all just want to steal my money - and my grand-children's money - to spend on their friends.
"Memory fails me. Was it the Demublicans or the Republicrats? I often get them confused as they look so much alike after they're in office for awhile"...Well ron h in this particular case regarding how the economy spalled apart due to the load of what the housing crapola spawned on the rest of the economy there is only one group to look at who waved the CRA flag...This doesn't excuse Bush's extreme allergy to the veto pen or how the Republicans wasted extorted tax dollars by the metric ton...
I can't believe Jindal isn't top of the list. He hits all cylinders.
Rubio is the only choice. 1 in 4 Latinos say they'll vote for anyone who has a Latino on their ticket.
I agree with Mike. Rubio is the only one who could make a big enough difference.
However, very troubling is the InTrade odds for Obama for reelection: 57% (and climbing). http://www.intrade.com/v4/markets/contract/?contractId=743474
"Well ron h in this particular case regarding how the economy spalled apart due to the load of what the housing crapola spawned on the rest of the economy there is only one group to look at who waved the CRA flag..."I agree 100% with that assessment, but in my view there are many factors that contributed to spallville including the Fed, Fannie and Freddie, the banks, rating agencies, etc. etc. etc., in fact every government agency and regulation that interfered with a free market gets the finger from me. I don't know what the cure for our ills should be but I know every answer must include way less government at all levels.Maybe it's time for what Jefferson called "the blood of tyrants and patriots" and should definitely include the blood of clueless idiots. I'm thoroughly disgusted with both major parties.Can you tell? :)
