More Signs Romney Will Not Be McCain's VP?

The VP guessing game for the GOP continues. I just saw this at the Boston Globe Romney plans foray into Denver

There is a certain etiquette still to these things.

I think usually out of respect the other ticket does not exactly do a ton of active showing up at events when the convention is going on. There are low key fundraisers etc. Needless to say I doubt if Romney was going to be the VP pick like two days later he would be showing up in Denver on Wednesday.

Just sorta not done

This is a good sign James...God willing we can get still get Palin, but I think it's Pawlenty.

BTW, I read his bio, Pawlenty is basically a "do no harm" pick (Nixon's admonition about picking VPs)...also, he is an ex-Catholic???

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!

I do think he will be Pawlenty still though Palin is there as a outside pick

Pawlenty is a ex Catholic married a Lutheran which is a tad depressign but he is friendly with Catholics so hopefully that will help

I will fo check out the discussion at the Palin vp site. I like her a lot however I just fear like Seantor Jindal she just needs a couple of more years. I do think she has the potential of being more exciting than Palwenty who sadly has the reputation of being a tad boring.

So Palin is a risk but it might be one worth taking. If I thought the "experince issue" would not come into play if I could see her more in debates I think I would get on board
