Shuster's picks: The seven women on Romney's VP 'short list'

Last edited Fri Jul 6, 2012, 05:21 AM - Edit history (1)

5. Nikki Haley, governor of South Carolina. Haley is the first woman to serve as governor of South Carolina and the second Indian-American governor in the country. At 40, she is also the youngest current governor in the country. Haley signed a law cracking down on illegal immigration and checks many of boxes in terms of tea party enthusiasm. However, as mentioned, she's been in office just 18 months. And for all of her charisma and star power, Haley could generate some distractions for the Romney campaign, given accusations that she was involved years ago in an extra-marital affair, allegations Haley has denied.

Oh pleeeeeaze pick Nikki!
There will be sooooo much stuff to write about. She's a bigger liar than Romney.

4. That one caught my eye, too.

This part:

The problem with Fiorina is that during her tenure at HP, company stock lost half its value. Plus, Democrats have already figured out how to neutralize a Fiorina campaign, as Barbara Boxer demonstrated in 2010.



Here's a reminder of how impressive Barbara Boxer is; this is classic:

2. The Republicans should have learned their lesson in 2008 to not pick a woman just because of gender


Someone that is young or good looking - without enough experience and qualifications - should NOT be put in the position of being a heart beat away from becoming president.

And I also think that we need a hell of a lot more than only ONE vice-presidential debate in order to learn more about the VP picks.

It is crazy that a VP can be on a ticket without going through a LONG and rigorous vetting BY the American people.

I think VPs picks on both sides should be picked at least SIX months before the election.

6. I agree. How satisfying it would have been to have seen more Biden/Palin debates.

I would have liked to have heard more beyond the already-obvious political philosophy. I'd like to have had them quizzed on world situations, geography, & American history. Who's next in line to the president owes the public more information about themselves than giving us just one hour's worth of platitudes.

7. We'd all benefit from more debates

and I think they'd do well in the ratings if someone like cnn or msnbc sponsored them.

10. Or any actual news organization.

 

The moderators in the past few cycles have been a complete joke.

8. He will pick a woman

only if it is late in the 4th quarter and he needs to loft a long pass.... and if he does so, it will not work. There are too many reasons for the republicans to lose the woman's vote and this will not help.

11. Tell us more. I know she's facing an ethics investigation, but there's got to be more.

 

I've lived in SC (briefly). No way a Ferner got elected Governor without some monkey business... and now it's buyers remorse.

Oh, those wacky Republics.

13. He forgot to mention the ethics investigation of Haley.

By members of her own party! I'm with you. Oh please!Oh please!Oh please!Oh please!

And, Susanna Martinez has already said she would not run due to family considerations.

14. More of SHUSTER's working days or calendar days reporting?

Let's see, back when he was assuring us that KKKarl would be indicted according to his sources knowledgeable of grand juries. When it didn't happen, he revealed that his sources were lawyers who had extensive experience representing clients facing grand juries --- NOT that particular grand jury, NOT with inside contacts/information with the federal prosecuter's office: Iow, lawyers who were giving him their best guesses AS PUNDITS, nobody with ACTUAL INFORMATION.

Then recently SHUSTER had another one of those predictive stories, I forget what about.

Yes, he tells us what some of us want to hear, the way Faux tells wingnuts what *they* want to hear, and he *did* work for Faux in his past. But, oh, well.
