Drudge hints: Condi Rice for Romney's VP?


Admittedly, I failed to see this coming.

I would have enjoyed perhaps Tom McClintock, Paul Ryan, Allen West, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal or any number of other young guns. I did not see the possibility of Condoleezza Rice being considered. I thought she had made her prior refusals quite clear -- but that was -- as we may all recall -- for the presidential spot, not VP.

That said, I'd take Rice over any number of inept, staid, corrupt, decrepit "Old Republicans" one molecule away from their brethren and sistren across the aisle.

Peggy Noonan of the Wall Street Journal writes -- as many people inherently know but mostly refuse to verbalize -- that Obama "seems to view politics as his weary duty, something he had to do on his way to greatness." And that Condi Rice would be a "brilliant choice" as VP.

Even Limbaugh wonders: "Condi?"

Let me get the obvious up front and out of the way. She is more "black" than Obama -- because that actually matters to some blacks. [That's a massive topic for another day. -BZ] She is more educated than Obama. She has infinitely more experience than Obama as the 66th Secretary of State under Bush. She was a poli-sci professor at Stanford, Bush's National Security Advisor in his first term and is, well, female. She had to overcome incredible obstacles in her way. She is a concert-level pianist. Under Wikepedia:

Rice was a Democrat until 1982, when she changed her political affiliation to Republican, in part because she disagreed with the foreign policy of Democratic President Jimmy Carter,[16][17] and because of the influence of her father, who was Republican. As she told the 2000 Republican National Convention, "My father joined our party because the Democrats in Jim Crow Alabama of 1952 would not register him to vote. The Republicans did."[18]

Imagine that. Those evil Republicans.

Any thoughts?

P.S.
Here is Condoleezza Rice as portrayed by the loving, accepting, tolerant, understanding, sensitive, inclusive and benevolent Leftists/Demorats:


Because, after all, that's what you do to a black female in Modern Day Demorat America who isn't an immediate adherent of your Leftist philosophy. Ruin her.

If you're a black, you're a Demorat. If you aren't, you're a traitor and slated for despicable ruination.

Condi Rice thinks that anyone with their pants below their underwear looks ludicrous.

That would strengthen the ticket, that's for sure. Even if the only difference was getting 15% of the black vote instead of 5%, that would be HUGE! And that number might be conservative!! (pun intended.)

AA: I believe that also.

I also believe that, for a time, until she was better-known and before she abdicated her governorship, Sarah Palin contributed to an astounding amount of VP interest in 2008.

Personally I think it's a red herring, and if she WAS on the ticket, it would be blame Bush all over again due to her years in that administration. AND she's never been vetted nor run for a political office, so who knows what's in her BG they could dredge up... But she WOULD make an interesting #2 :-)

I am not happy about it.
BUT, if this would guarantee that Romney would win, then Yes.

Anything to defeat OBAKA.

Rice may not be too bad, I honestly can't say, but if Romney is so desperate or STUPID that he calls up Palin, I am done with ANY part of the GOP and will vote Independent 3rd Party...

Condi is bad news. I hope this is just something to keep the press talking over the weekend.

As far as career politicians go, she's not as bad as most. She'd be a positive addition to the Romney campaign. I mentioned her to my wife a few months ago as a good VP choice and she replied, "Romney's probably not that smart."

She's said she wouldn't run since this rumor came out...and she just reiterated it.
I'm not sure how conservative she is on the economy, etc...
Pundits are saying this rumor was flown by the Romney crowd to get the conversation away from Bain and Tax Documents...

I'd LOVE to see her debate Biden...wouldn't you?
But the lesbian rumors are rampant and she wouldn't want that to open up IF she is. And I read an article which mentioned her two best girlfriends who are far lefties, which made me ponder.

It won't be Condi. Plus, including her on the ticket gives the lefties more "Bush's fault" fodder...

At this point, all I can see is Bilderberg. It seems that we are being given a choice between how we will be assimilated into the New World Order.

It seems that Drudge was off base on this one. Too bad -- in that now, when I recommend Drudge to my liberal friends, they drag up this error on the part of a web site that I visit every day. **sigh**

Condi is the antithesis of affirmative action: promoted because of her strong ability and knowledge.
