      I'm not sure how he could do that since the R.N.C. hasn't actually nominated him yet.  They are scheduled to meet in Tampa between August 27, 2012 and August 30, 2012.

      Somehow I think they may well nominate someone else other than Willard Mitt Romney.

          It would be in the party's best interest to nominate someone else. Don't you think? Who would it be; no clue!

          There are a number of things that need to happen. Romney has to stop deflecting questions and start answering them. Hell, at one point he singled out Tipper Aitcheson Gore rather than her husband as an example of what tax returns he should make public. Tipper wasn't running; Al was.

          There's too much in the news about that damned horse and his wife's $77,000 tax deducted hobby. At the height of my profession I was making as much per year as the deduction for that horse.

          There are too many questions about Bain Capital an it's "job creation" record. I notice that no one on the right side of the aisle is saying WHERE those jobs were created, while the left side keeps saying the jobs weren't created here, but rather in India, China, and (of all places) Burma.

          If Romney is going to have any shot at all of bringing in the undecided votes he's going to have to open up his tax records for a decade or more. And from what I understand he and his wife have been VERY generous when it comes to charity.

          Why on earth hide THAT?

            smile Andy Borowitz actually came up with this in a New Yorker article. Andy has been doing political and social humor for quite some time now.

    I deleted my post by accident, aarghh!


    I have heard this over the weekend and was waiting for some kind of announcement today.

    I think once he does that Barack should just spend the next couple months after the Convention playing golf. The GOP is imploding again.

      Romneys slogan should read "Unchange"

        See it's just why in the wide wide world of sports would you nominate someone no one outside of Washington wanted?

        That is what is wrong with both parties. The main stream will not listen to the people.

      So far from the supposed short list we have been hearing about there is no such thing as a solid Conservative in the running.

    Maybe they just threw that out to see how everyone would react...

      Yeah...that's called a test balloon. I hope they saw how fast we shot that one down.
      Tim Pawlenty is a joke.

    His running mate isn't going to make any difference on this election.

      You are likely to be quite right.
      These are some sad times.

    Makes about as much sense as Sarah Palin. I find it very strange that republicans who run for president rarely pick anyone from the pack, whom withdrew their hat from the race. Not only that, I have been amazed by how much bitterness there has been between those running and Mitt Romney. Ron Paul apparently thinks he still has a chance. It's been like watching a bad highscool reunion, where the jocks and the nerds continue to try to one up each other.

    I think that is probably why you will never see any long term seated senator like John Boner, (I'm not sure how to spell his name, but the name fits) run for the White House, because they wouldn't want to be removed from their throne of power. This election is just one joke after another.

    I can't find anything in the news about Romney's having already selected a VP. I did read that he hired a VP committee today, and one report says he's narrowed his choices down to T-Paw and Portman. I vote for Portman - not that Mitt consulted me. lol

    Calvin Trillin on Mitt Romney

    "Mitt Romney as Doll" by Calvin Trillin in The Nation 1-21-08
    MITT ROMNEY AS DOLL

    Yes, Mitt's so slick of speech and slick of garb, he

    Reminds us all of Ken, of Ken and Barbie-----

    So quick to shed his moderate regalia,

    He may, like Ken, be lacking genitalia.
