Romney Camp Floats Condileeza Rice Trial Balloon for VP


Matt Drudge is reporting that Condi Rice is "at the top of the list" in Romney's Veepstakes. I think this is total malarkey. Remember just the other day how Romney's media advisers said they were using Drudge to manage their campaign? They can't brag about that one week, then come out with a Drudge-based newsflash and expect us to believe it.

Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney's presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive, 'Meet The VP' -- just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful, sources reveal.
And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice!
The timing of the announcement is now set for 'coming weeks'.
It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney's Utah retreat a few weeks ago and everyone left with her name on their lips.
Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.

I'm telling you right now, Condileeza Rice is NOT going to be the Veep choice for Romney. No way. What seems to be a trial balloon sent aloft to test public opinion is really they just a desperate attempt to avert the media gaze from Romney's connection to Bain between 1999 and 2002.

Number one, Condi Rice is radioactive from the Bush Administration. The first thing the press will do is bring up the day Katrina flooded New Orleans, when Condi was seen buying expensive shoes in New York and going to a Broadway Show. Oh, and the Iraq War. End of story.

Number two, I was under the impression that she voted for Obama in the last election. As I recall she stayed as far away as possible from John McCain and Sarah Palin. Although Palin today said Rice would be "wonderful" in the role. Still, who believes that Palin is actually in the know? I don't think so.

Number three, just because Rice made a rockin' speech at Romney's Mitt-Fest in Utah a few weeks ago doesn't mean she would ever be accepted by the Tea Party as Vice President. If they hate Obama, why let another African American get close to the White House? The very people who like to read Drudge and Breitbart would be having a hissy fit and wondering why Romney couldn't choose a nice white woman instead.

Nothing to see here . . . let's move along . . .
