    Condoleeza Rice as Romney’s VP would be a gift for Obama. It’s been more difficult to run on an anti-Bush platform now that 4 years have passed, but that would certainly reignite that message.

    Good to see that she’s finally learning of the roles of the various government players. A dollar short and a day late, but hey, this is progress.

    Palin would need 3 week’s coaching just to recite the alphabet. Dear media: her 15 minutes are over and no one with a brain cares what she says.

    Jack, every time Sarah Palin speaks, her brain shifts into auto-mode and the rest of the world has to adjust.

    The fact that Fox gives her ANY airtime shows how vapid and twisted they are. Seriously, they can’t get someone any smarter than this to comment on the story?

    Sad.

    “innocent, precious and purposeful human life — a pro-life candidate” In other words, people like her (or what she thinks she is herself).
    That’s why she didin’t say respect all human life.

  8. SRB says

    @Amanda Not quite. The Veep does play a role in the legislative branch, as President of the Senate with the responsibility of casting tie-break votes. In fact that’s really the only official duty the VP has, and Palin–the VP nominee in ’08–still doesn’t seem to know that.

    Bring on Condi! She was a principal architect and cheerleader for the Iraq War. Her many Pinocchio moments of lying on the Sunday talk show circuit are well archived and easily accessed.

    So when the Dem’s are pro choice they’re baby killers, when it’s a Neo Con, well, it’s actually congress that makes the laws…. A Mormon with magic underwear and a pro choice VP pick and she’s just smiling like a loon. I have spoons with more intelligence than Palin.

  11. Rick says

    Serious question: Is there not solid evidence that Condolezza Rice is a lesbian and would it not all be brought to light if Romney actually picked her as a running mate?

    I cannot believe that he would take such a risk, given the disaster that Palin was last time, and given how cautious they are trying to be this time.

    You would think they would have learned that having a woman on ticket does not do them any good, but I guess they are pretty hard-headed. But the risk of her being “outed”–which would destroy his viability as a candidate completely–tops even that consideration.

  12. Lucas says

    They probably aren’t looking much further than the fact that she’s black and a female. SOoo progressive of repubs! How did that work out for McCain in ’08?

  13. Bob R says

    Rice did not get the VP nod from McCain due in part to rumors of her being a lesbian. She co-owns a “rental” property with another woman, but both deny living together or being gay. Rice is seldom, if ever, seen dating or in the company of men. Rice is not married and that is a big problem for her in politics. In business as well as politics, past a certain age you are expected to be married otherwise your “stability”, sexual orientation and morals are open to question. There are very few executive or boardroom members who are not married (or at least divorced or widowed). Wives (or husbands) are considered part of the package when promotions are considered in the business world.

    Rice has a lot of baggage. In addition to the lesbian rumors, she, too, is a documented liar with plenty of video tapes and transcripts to prove that. She was also rumored (at the other sexual extreme) to be “in love” with GW and may have dallied with him sexually. In other words, she has a lot of sexual baggage too.

    Drudge is floating the Rice rumor in an attempt to create a distraction and turn attention away from Romney’s Bain problem. The contradiction of the SEC filing versus Romney’s stated departure date from Bain promise to severely damage, if not derail his campaign. It’s feared that these new revelations are only the beginning and a big reason why Romney refuses, thus far, to release tax returns.

    Rice is just a ruse. She would not float with the neo-con, Tea Party crowd. I still say Portman will be the VP choice, if he’s stupid enough to take it. Portman’s self serving advantage would be, even if Romney/Portman lose the election, he can still keep his Senate seat.

    As usual, Ms. Palin shows an incredible grasp of our laws and government. Abortion was never legislated by Congress but determined a right under the constitution in Roe v. Wade. Of course, she thought the Queen of England ruled the British Empire today (probably lost her history book after the first week of class).

    Condoleeza Rice? Uhmm…maybe I’m wrong but she remains unmarried. Don’t worry, though, she is not lonely as she enjoys the company of many female friends.

  15. Ken says

    When I saw the quote that Condi Rice had “disrespect for human life”, my first thought was about all those killed in the wars that were a result of George Bush’s foreign policy which she was the front person for. She was National Security Adviser at the time of the worst terrorist attack on US soil in history and Secretary of State at a time when America’s respect abroad reached an all time low. When is someone going to figure out she is totally incompetent?

  16. anon says

    I doubt the campaign will pick anyone who isn’t married. A key photo from every convention is to have the two couples stand on the dais together for a “victory shot”. You can’t do that with three people, so the VP selection team would almost certainly veto anyone unmarried.

  17. jamal49 says

    Uh, yeah, right, Sarah.

    Um, can anybody here explain what “all innocent, precious, purposeful human life” means?

    The money quote:

    ” We need to remember though that it’s not the vice president who would legislate abortion. That would be Congress’s role, and, uh, we’ll keep that in mind.”

    Actually, Sarah, I hope we DO keep that in mind. The November election ain’t just about the Presidency. It’s about Congress, too.

    Imagine a Republican president and a Republican-controlled House and Senate.

    Now, imagine all the legislation a Republican-controlled House and Senate might pass that a President Romney would willingly sign into law.

    Think about it. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

  18. tinkerbelle says

    I’m still trying to figure out “rumors that Condi was in love with GW”… what was that?

    I don’t think that Neo-Con-di would even want the job, and I am sure that Romney has not considered this, after the McCain-Palin fiasco (odd how this word doesn’t even BEGIN to describe that event…)

  19. Opinionated says

    Petty complaint but I wish we would stop calling former Govenernors and Senators, “Gov Palin” or “Gov Romney”. Only Presidents should be reserved that right, not Governors or Senators or Congresspeople. Really grinds my gears.

  20. PAUL B. says

    I remember not long ago Greta and Palin were together in front of the camera almost daily.
    Greta went to visit her in Wasila…followed her around like a puppy during the lead up to the election. I just couldn’t watch Greta without seeing her love-fest with Palin play out. And…yes, I watch Greta because she’s somewhat tolerable…and I get to see her idiot guests make fools of themselves. Greta has got to be a lez, so that entices me a bit too. She’s been in love with Palin from the get-go!

  21. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says

    I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED IF, Greta van Susteren, IS “lesbian.” I ENJOYED Ms. van Susteren’s LEGAL INTERPRETATION OF THE William Kennedy-Smith Trial IN 1991.

    “RICK” (13 JULY; 11:06:40 AM),

    ON CONSERVATIVE SITES, THE BIRACIAL PRESIDENT HAS ALREADY BEEN CONFIRMED, “gay.” THEREFORE, A “FULL NEGRO” LIKE, Secretary Condoleeza Rice, PH.D, COULD MATCH HER “lesbian” WITH THE KENYAN’S “gay.”

    CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

  23. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says

    “ENDO” (13 JULY; 8:19:03 AM),

    UNFORTUNATELY, SIR, YOU ARE RIGHT. IN THIS CIRCUMSTANCE, PART-NEGRO “TRUMPS” FULL-NEGRO.

    CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

  24. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says

    IT WOULD BE GREAT IF Secretary Condoleeza Rice, PH.D COULD CAPITALIZE ON HER HISTORY WITH THE Birmingham Church Bombing DURING THE 1960s. “PRO-LIFE” AND ANTI-“gay” NEGROES DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH SENSE TO SUPPORT HER.

    CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

  25. E says

    Suddenly that “ideological difference” is not relevant to VP role because VP does not legislate?   Perhaps Palin should research who casts deciding vote if Senate has 50/50 split.  Government 101.
