Michelle Bachman is guaranteed at least the VP spot

#1SaxonPosted 8/13/2011 1:06:13 PM(edited)
Whether the nominee is Perry or Romney, they will have to choose the Tea Party's darling Michelle Bachman as VP in order to emerge from the Republican convention next August unified and feeling good about their chances of maintaining all the red states while picking off a few blue states in the process.

*Rolls eyes.*

Isn't there anyone else who can win the nomination and represent the Tea Party?

(No.)

mmmmmph!

Romney will be under even more pressure to pick the Tea Party's golden girl because many claim they will walk away from the GOP if he's the nominee. However, he can bring some of them back by offering her the VP spot.

Do you just constantly post stupid topics for the hell of it? Or are you getting paid to?

Perry is not a contender. It's going to be either Romney or Bachman (preferably Bachmann) and hopefully the other will be the VP.

I'm not voting for a ticket that has Bachman anywhere near it, and otherwise I'm like to vote Republican. I think any gains that can be made from picking her will be balanced from people he would stand to lose.

Appeasing the tea party's a good way to ensure those states stay blue. Those people are insane and they've showed it.

Why would you think this? Perry has all of Bachmann's Tea Party appeal with fewer of her weaknesses. Bachmann may be as toxic to a ticket as Palin. Trust me, independents and centrists will think twice before letting her be a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

I think Michelle Bachmann would be an awful choice for any position of power. But I can't deny that I would love the sheer comedy of her in a presidential/VP debate.

This move backfired for McCain just four years ago. Perry and Romney are better off picking each other.
