I would like to like to just say I think this is a bad idea


Many articles out today suggesting Mittens for cabinet posts. You know, hopeful republicans saying Mitsy has alot of offer. He is a man who insulted 47% of the country, ran a race baiting campaign where he didn't stop surrogates from pushing birther nonsense, didn't stop republican governors and sec. of states from trying to suppress the african american votes, in other words, he lacked character, on top of the dishonest campaign he ran, so I think he should he should be put out to pasture never to be heard from again. His kind of advice the President doesn't need!

2. I agree

What would he do anyway? He offered no new ideas during the campaign. He just rehashed tired old ideas from Bush. I can't see how Romney could possibly be of any use.

5. We all know that President Obama has appointed republicans to his cabinet in the past.

But in general, they've all had at least a shred of competence. That alone disqualifies Romney.

Don't worry about it. It's not going to happen.

24. 2 editorials in Boston papers, and a few DUers here thought it was a great idea.

I can't fathom why anyone would think that was a good idea.

9. A "team of rivals" is one thing.

But giving that heartless bastard a voice in any public service forum would risk alienating every last one of Obama's voters.

11. Obama is not going to appoint somebody he thinks is a lying incompetent

Gimme a break. He said, in a conciliatory gesture, that he'd sit down with the guy. How they extrapolate that into "Cabinet Post" is yet another great mystery of MSM Punditry. Obama actively dislikes Romney, and everybody knows it. It's a nonstarter from git.

29. I agree with you, but...

I never thought PBO would ask Hilary Clinton to be his SOS. One of the President's admirable qualities is to think 12 steps ahead. I still doubt the President would extend a cabinet post to the former governor. I do think strategically it's not out of the realm of possibility that the President would make overtures to Republicans he thinks he can work with like Senators Lugar and Snowe. It would provide cover for the endless calls from the right about the President being unwilling to work with the Republicans. A delicious irony might be to give Romney some "unappointed Czar" position in his administration. Nothing with any real policy influence mind you. Just a window dressing kind of position.

22. Ambassador to Kolob

Seriously though, Mitt Romney is damaged goods now. He means nothing to the GOP, and his appointment to the cabinet will not win any converts from the other camp. Meanwhile, Democrats and liberals will see this as a cloying and pointless pander to nobody.

Besides, Romney's a terrible politician with no leadership skills.

23. It's not going to happen

 

One of the open "secrets" about the relationship between Obama & Flip-Flopper is that Obama detests Etch-A-Sketch on a personal level. And it's well known that Tax Cheater hates Obama, so there's that.

So, it's not gonna happen!

25. Don't worry it will never happen. Obama won't offer -and Romney would never submit his finances...


... to the Senate so he would not make it through a senate confirmation.

Also, Mitt isn't ever going to accept a job where he would be working 'for' President Obama.

31. I don't even understand the idea

that the president should meet with him regarding ideas for the upcoming "fiscal cliff" talks. Why? At this point he has no status.
He's not an elected official (unlike his running mate) and with this loss, he's not even the head of his party.
