Glenn complains about every Romney VP option

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Talk of Romney’s possible VP choice is kicking into high gear as Condi Rice rumors swirled around the internet today. Glenn thinks that choice is highly unlikely, but as he ran down the list of possibles Glenn seemed to do nothing but complain. Is there any VP choice he likes?

“He needs something that will, will unite the people, the Tea Party people,” Glenn said. “Somebody who will speak to us because that’s the only group he hasn’t spoken to.”

Glenn went through some of the big names rumored for the spot? Condoleezza Rice, Tim Pawlenty, Rob Portman.

Glenn felt that the list is full of big government Republicans and no one who will excite the Tea Party, libertarians, or independents.

“We’ve got California and New York already. We’ve got that on the other guy. We’ve got it. Can somebody represent the rest of the nation?” Glenn asked.

“Mitt Romney. You may not agree with his faith, but it plays a huge role. It’s why I can vouch for the man’s character, because I know he prays on his knees. I know his wife. He is a man of good character. I don’t necessarily agree with him, but he’s a man of good character. Now, what else can we do? Can we get somebody, anybody who’s a little more small government conservative.”

“I mean, it’s a legitimate argument and I’m sure it’s being made constantly. To me when McCain was running, I needed Sarah Palin to even pull the lever for McCain,” Stu added.

“You need people who are on their tractors. You need people who are in their trucks. You need people who are busy in the construction site who don’t pay attention to this stuff as much as we do. Somebody that speaks that language.”

    NO! NO! NO! Condi Rice has the same insane image of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as does “the Legend in his own mind,” Jimmy Carter, “Just call me Ishmail” Nasrallah, and Hassan “the PSTD-Man-Made-Disaster-Workplace-Violence-Taqiyya-talking-Ft.-Hood-flunkie.

    Well, not exactly the same, since she draws a hysterical/historical parallel between the Jim Crow Blacks of the Dixicrat Democrat South and other assorted White-Men-Are-Devils-diatribes.

    Whoever Romneys VP pick is to be; it has to be someone who can aid in uniting the nation behind a dream of recovery and restoration. This is the long haul we are speaking of, the fate of the nation for freedom or serfdom is decided this November.

    Let us have a uniter of the people, not a divider and not a narcissistic madman such as Obama the First (and last I pray).

    All I can say is I don’t like any of the VP’s mentioned so far that are more seriously considered…

    Yeah well you should have complained about Romney during the primary Glenn, you really lost a ton of respect.  I think it’s funny that Glenn Bashed EVERY candidate BUT romney during the Rep. Primary.  This baffles me, Glenn normally doesn’t hold back on Big Government Progressives(BGP), With romney obviously being the biggest BGP of all the candidates.  Why would Glenn NOT bash the biggest progressive to EVER run in the Rep. primary; and bash the other candidates???  It couldn’t be a shared Religion could it???  NO, NO, NO!!!!

     A vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil I voted for the lesser evil in the past three presidential elections and and I refuse to do it again I will not be forced to support someone whom I have vast political and moral disagreements with simply because he isn’t quite as bad as the “other choice” please read this article  http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fleadershipforliberty.org%2Findex.php%2Fnews-articles%2F230-choosing-the-lesser-of-two-evils&h=WAQFN1vhy

    That’s just F’n great Stymie!!!! If America gets stuck with Obama for four more years, we can all thank you and the other Paulites. I have nothing against Rand but I will be voting for whoever is not Barack Obama and anyone who doesn’t is committing treason. This is the single most corrupt, incompitent and devious administration that our country has had to endure and you will only vote if you get your way. People like you have gotten us where we are.

    I like the idea of Alan West s VP, we need a military man at this point in time, plus the screams of “racist” would not be effective.
    The only problem I can see with this is the fact Obama has so badly poisoned the waters for ANY well qualified black candiate for years to come it may lose a more than a few voters.  It’s really hard to say.

     You’re Wrong DrSique,  It’s been and still is those without the integrity to admit they continue to vote for the Lesser of Evils is somehow “NOT Voting for Evil”.
    After MONTHS of Primary Posturing and Bickering and still there is no definitive stance from Romney (The Lesser of two Evils who is Not Evil) and yet ALL AMERICANS know what Dr. Paul stands for and against . They have since the beginning. Dr. Paul isn’t changing his beliefs to suit your mood.  Morality is NOT something you can have Half a Glass of. Your stand for what you believe or you fall for any half-baked promise (lie) that is uttered by a Politician. That’s exactly why it is folks like you who are ‘in fact’ responsible for the desperate situation America finds itself in today. Continuing to vote for the “Lesser of Evils” won’t provide solutions . . . only “More Of The Same”! Wake the F- – -  Up.

    I totally get what Glenn is saying here. He is speaking what we all are thinking.. Talk to us MITT!  He is right… Why isn’t Mitt on Glenn’s show? Why isn’t Mitt reaching out to the evangelicals?  The true conservatives?

    People why not Santorum?  He won 11 states for God’s sake and had the evangelicals in his pocket.. Rick had that fire in his belly and he spoke the truth and got people excited.. If not Rick then RUBIO!!!   We need someone who projects that every day man thing and Santorum and Rubio do… All the others are not exciting….. We need that every day man who speaks to the TP and who teh evangelicals… To me that was Rick Santorum or Rubio.

    You’re correct Doski. I only wish more people thought like you and me. If we (as a country) had been electing true conservatives over the past 100 or so years, the US would definitely not be in the trouble it’s in today.

    Mitt ‘Rino” Romney is not a conservative and will not have my vote either. He’s flipped more times than a McDonalds hamburger on the grill on very important issues.  I really don’t believe a word he says about what he’s going to do when he gets into office. How anybody can believe a man who says he’s going to repeal “Obamacare” when he created “Romneycare” is beyond me.

    In my opinion, when you get right down to it our two party system is a complete failure. All we have now is two heads of the same snake. One believes in the “welfare state” and the other believes in the “warfare state”. Both are drunk on money, power, and control. Until we as a people put true conservatives in all three branches of government nothing will really change for the better.

    My only advise to you is stick to your guns! It will be very difficult on boards like this one to support true conservatives like Congressmen Ron Paul. I used to blog on a board called “The Right Scoop” but don’t anymore due to the name calling and harassing I got when I talked about him. Yet, when I call them out for “neo-cons” I get yelled at by the moderators for starting trouble. Yeah. Right. OK. They’re all hypocrites.

    I’m told that one of the definitions for insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Based on that most of the voters in this country can probably be labeled insane.

    All the best to you.

    I am tired of people that say they won’t vote or they will vote for Ron Paul. Please we cannot afford another 4 years of this liar and fraud. His intentions are the destruction of the U.S. Just look at everything he and his co-horts are doing. No pipeline, no drilling (but letting China and Venezuela drill 60 miles off shore), regulating through the EPA to close down our coal plants that produce 60% of our electricity, spending billions and billions in green energy that have gone bankrupt with nothing to show for it. With the threat of Iran closing down the Strait of Hermose which will cut the flow of oil here. He is cutting our military power, won’t close down our borders, is having talks at the White House with the muslim brotherhood, he is anti-christian and spent 20 years attending an America haters church and you won’t vote for Romney. You are either totally ignorant of what is actually going on (are you watching MSNBC) or you don’t have a brain in your head. Wake UP America before it’s too late. We also need to bring GOD back into our lives and our Government like it was 60 years ago. Read “The Harbinger” by Jonathan Cahn and just think about what is going on in this world. Getting rid of Obama is a must and just the beginning.

    You’re trying to drag me over to “your side” of the argument. I understand that and I respect you for it. I can see you’re passionate about this issue. I’m also relieved that you didn’t just hurl insults and vitriolic comments at me like the people on that other board I used to blog on did and I thank you for that.

    However, what this country really needs is for people like you to realize that voting for the lesser of two evils is NOT what made/makes the US the greatest country on the face of the earth and make the move to “my/our side”. The side of true conservatives. The side that will really put this country back on the right track to liberty and prosperity. Doing anything less (for me) is a vote against my conscious and my beliefs. I refuse to compromise my beliefs. I refuse to vote to just vote AGAINST Obama. Votes like that are the reason we’re where we are in the first place. I want to vote FOR somebody I can believe in not because I want to keep somebody who’s already there from winning again.

    My sincere apologies to you. As I said, I respect your argument and can see you’re passionate about it but I will not compromise my beliefs.

    All the best to you.

    Herman Cain or Lt Col Allen West. I like both of them because they tell the truth, are black so no one can pull the race card on the ticket and they are in favor the of Constitution, it’s values and principles and would be incredible LEADERS. Then Romney has to promise to put Ron Paul in charge of ending the Fed and declare he will reverse every single executive order BO ever issued the minute he enters the white house.

    I assume you’re not voting for Obama, so who would be your other choice? Would you just not vote? I agree with your pick for Rand Paul and I believe it makes a statement. Many such as myself will vote for Romney because there is no other choice, but there are still a few who may not even vote at all because of him. Many who were Ron Paul supporters. I believe this will soften the blow for those who are disenchanted by the whole election process. Rand Paul is a great choice, because we need every anti Obama voter out there.

    Of course I was kidding about me, but I was just thinking of someone that started out in a gas station, that worked as a machinist in a factory, that was in dealer management and had his own business for 30 years. Someone that is used to interrogations (depositions) by truly evil defense attorneys and knows how to spin it right back at them. Someone that has been through every facet of life to get to the point that, like the Obama team, just don’t know how to handle it where the wheels come off.

    Col West is a very honorable man and I really like him, but I am afraid dingbats like wasserman-schultze will get into pissing matches with him again which will be a side show.

    Like Glenn, I think we need someone that can relate to the Tea party and the regular worker and has the jaws of a pitbull to take on everything they throw at the team, line by line.
    Listening to Obama calling out Mitt on his taxes and saying a president must let all his records out for transparency, I would agree with the dope smoker and demand at the same time, all his college records and theses.

    I just hope he makes the right choice.

    LTC West would be pilloried for the one willful, unlawful act he did to save American lives that drove him out of the service.     He knew the consequences, did the deed and willingly paid the price – they could have stripped him of rank and benefits, even sent him to jail.    Fortunately, those above him in the chain of command understood.    The man is a leader beyond what most commissioned officers aspire to become.

    Romney needs a serious attack-dog type personality to run with him as VP, because on his own he’s just too nice a guy.  His choice should be someone who appeals to the tea party conservatives and who daily whips the Obama liberals back under the rocks where they came from and where they rightly belong.  Also he (or she) has to have enough experience under their belt so that we’re not making the same dumb mistake that we made with Obama, or I should say, that those who voted for him made. (That leaves out Marco Rubio.  He’s a geat guy, but just too young.)  It’s not enough that the VP candidate be compitent and thoughtful.  He (or she) has to be a no-nonsense take-no-prisoners type of person.  Otherwise Romney will not only “do no harm,” but he may also do no win, because the Obama camp is quite comfortable with completely disregarding the truth.  They will say anything as long as they think ehough people will believe it, and not because it in any way resembles the truth.  At this point in time I’m inclined to favor Allen West as the best choice of VP, but I really don’t know enough about him to chisel it in stone.  I don’t really care for the Jersey Shore ruffian because he seems to come across as too mean at times.  But West strikes me as the right type of VP candidate at this time.  Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s why he should be properly vetted if he’s to be considered.  Again, we don’t need another “nice guy” type to run with Romney.  Two nice guys on the ticket would be a losing proposition.  And by the way, from what I’ve seen of him so far, I believe Allen West could do a fine job of running the county if a future president Romney should meet his demise.

    You gotta be kidding, What the heck kind of trickery is this about Condi Rice.  (She is Pro-Choice, and Pro-Palestinian, wants to divide Jerusalem and have a 2 state solution preventing Israel from defending themselves)…We will never support her nomination and I smell a big fat Rat in the Democrat party for circulating this garbage!    Obama keeps throwing stuff out there to diminish Romney’s chances of being elected….we know how his machine works!

    Right On….Its time to start electing people, Like West,  with Character and integrity who stand up for real human rights…not fakes who want to enlarge the government and keep people dependent on the government for their livelihood! Personally I have tremendous respect for LTC Allen West, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and Paul Ryan…they could make a huge difference in the way this country is run and I hope all the Left wing loons on this website read this!

    West and Cain are great guys, they have values, principles, and morals, and so do alot of black people, (specifically on abortion and gay marriage),  if they can get over being taken care of by this regime…it will come down to moral integrity and self-esteem and a desire to achieve goals the government can’t give us!

    Glenn;

    I agree with andy (below) and would select Alan West.  LCOL West is the fireball needed by the Romney campaign. Romney needs someone who knows the facts, knows that Obama is a Socialist and isn’t afraid to debate on ether of these issues.  
    Condi Rice is an intelectual that neither Obama nor Biden could stand up to in a debate.  She woud make them both look ridiculous and severely stupid BUT, she is not a scrapper. 
    Romney needs someone who will ravel in the gravel with Obama and Biden.  No matter what, we simply cannot allow the Socialists to win another term in office.  They will destroy the country if that happens.

    Regardless of what happened in Iraq, West is that “leader” we need. Granted, he broke regs and paid the price for doing that. BUT, he could get down and dirty with both Obama and Biden for their even greater criminal actions against our country and against our Constitution.

    Never before have we had such a destructive team in power than we do now.  These Socialist have simply got to go. If we are not successful in this election, the entire nation will be in peril and that will be OUR fault.

    Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen.  Let’s  CLEAN HOUSE in November. It is time to kick out as many Socialists from BOTH parties in our State and Federal governments.

    Allen West, a man of courage and conviction.  Most of the others are
     Establishment Republicans who are being promoted by the usual losers.

    I am in absolute total agreement Glenn and I know most of us that are engaged in the battle want an Allen West type person beside Romney, somebody with the talk and say how we think.
    It is imparative that we have anj ally as part of this run.
    We are in the fight of our lives and Mitt seems to be just going thru the motions to to get to the WH.
    I want a fighter with the ability to inspire and and enthuse not only us that are engaged but to help us say see we told you!!
    Pray we can get one of us picked for VP.

    Lt. Col. Allen West has his head screwed on RIGHT++++ not like most of our politicians that
    can’t pour urine (refined word) out of a boot unless they read the directions on the bottom
    of the heel —old saying but politically correct!  L.C. West is a smart man that speaks with
    authority with forethought–not like Biden!!!  He would definitly compliment Romney.  He appears
    to me of being a honest man with character–that’s hard to find in congress.

    We need to get to the point where it does not matter what bozo is pres or vp. GOVT is the problem.  Doug Casey’s comments about “Atlas Shrugged” is spot on.  Casey’s research.  Read it folks, it’s a frank honest view of where we are going.  Frankly all the talking heads are BS and that includes my own comments.  Let’s do and quit talking about it.

    There’s is a sure fire way for Romney to guarantee victory, nominate Ron Paul or Rand Paul as VP.

    Did I say I was a Republican? Did I say I was a progressive? Did I say I supported Obama? No. I dislike Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi, Shumer, Rangel, McCain, Graham, Lugar, etc. more than you could ever know. If I was to give a letter grade to the Republican party of the last 50 years or so it would be a C minus / D plus. The alphabet doesn’t go low enough for a grade for the Democrats!
    Most of the people that I know and that post on boards like this one and The Right Scoop (where I used to post) are not conservatives in my opinion. At best they’re neo-cons, at worst they’re statists; just like the politicians they support.In my home state I’m registered as “Unaffiliated”. I also consider myself to be a Libertarian when it comes to politics. I believe in liberty, free markets, and peace. None of which Romney, Obama, Bush II, Clinton, Bush I, Regan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, etc. have ever stood for completely. Yes, I did vote for some of those folks but now realize that I was wrong and that there’s very little difference between any of them when it cones to REAL liberty, free markets, and peace.When a candidate runs that I can believe in I will vote for that candidate no matter what party he/she is affiliated with. I vote with my conscience not for the lesser of two evils because it’s still evil no matter what.All the best to you.

    I really would like either Paul Ryan (who I would hesitate on only because I want him to be speaker of the house) or Bobby Jindal.  Jindal has done a terrific job of turning around a corrupt state and has “walked the walk” on education reform, health reform, and state rights over federal usurpation of power.

    Ardent Leftist President Obama’s team accused Romney of being a Criminal . At the same time, President Obama’s team is claiming Victim over the Birth certificate ordeal .
    It is a lot worse to be Accused of Being a CRIMINAL than Not born in this country , which is Hypocritical (again) by the Leftists (progressive democrats).

    I find it all amusing that we humans can think that we can act on the world’s stage to the extent that anything matters except what Christ has determined from the beginning of time.  We act as though we are players on this stage when in truth we follow either the truth or the lies.

    Glenn I have liked you for years.  But Rmney has a large pool to look at for a person to stad with him as VP.  In that respect his choice is going to be hard.  It will surely be better then Biden.

    I would like to see Mario Rubio be the VP with Romney. He states things straight and to the point. Senator Rubio is what Romney needs on his ticket, the other people mentioned can be in his Cabinet. Rice as Ambasador, Rudy G great Homeland Security, West would be great for Defense, Santorum, etc in the cabinet.  thank you

    A Southerner  from the Tea Party will tip the electon for Romney

    Romney have meny good choices for VP, but he must not pick a RINO. If he picks Portman, Pawlenty, Condi, or some of the other RINO that have been desrcribed as to pick, and he is toast. He’ll not be reelected. If Romney wants to win he must listen to the people who will be his boss. I’m waiting to see whom he chooses, if I don’t like and and it is more of the same, I’m staying home this election. I’ll give my support and put my effords in electing true conservatives to the house and senate. But I hope he makes the right choice, he seems to be a benevolent person, which is a good contrast with evil Obama.

    A vote for a third party candidate, is a vote for Obama. We should vote for Romney no matter who is his VP choice, if we really want to get rid of the White House Commie in November.

    I like West alot, also like portman and ryan.  We need to have someone who will connect with the people, there has to be someone in the conservative party that can do that.

    You had your choice to support Ron Paul Glenn but you didn’t so now you have to lay in the bed you made.

    You lost your country over your fear of a nation who has no air force, navy and who cannot even produce enough gasoline for its own citizens. You should put your face on that list of Cowards you are doing.

     The enemy of my enemy is NOT my friend.

    I’m gonna vote for the socialist progressive candidate instead of the Communist progressive Candidate, but most of the conservative base has more moral fortitude than you and I, and just won’t vote for Romney.

    The progressive republican party has been picking big government progressive candidates for over a decade now, repeating the same behavior repeatedly expecting different outcomes, the definition of insanity.  Until the Republican party returns to Small government and fiscal responsibility there is no hope.
