McCain: Romney Should Choose Palin As Vice Presidential Candidate

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain says Rick Santorum should recognize “it’s time for a graceful exit” from the Republican presidential campaign in the wake of Mitt Romney’s sweep of primaries in Wisconsin, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

McCain also tells “CBS This Morning” there’s a strong field of Republicans who could be the vice presidential candidate.

When asked to suggest some names Wednesday, the Arizona Republican said, “I think it should be Sarah Palin.” But when pressed to elaborate, he said “I think we have some very qualified candidates,” citing Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Govs. Mitch Daniels of Indiana, Chris Christie of New Jersey and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska, was McCain’s running mate in his unsuccessful bid for the presidency four years ago.

    Anyone who listens to McCain needs to have his head examined.

    1. Momofthree says:

      I guess RINO McCain thinks RINO Romney will listen…

      1. Carl says:

        Anyone who listens to RINO / dumb twit Sarah Palin needs to have their head examined. She is not a Republican.

      2. steamboatwz says:

        Carl: Palin not a Republican ?!? HUH ???? What are you smoking ? And nice name calling – it really adds to the conversation.

        > Note to Neo-Cons including the Laureate : your empire is ending in Afghan where most do. The largess and egesta are over.

        Secularizing and genocide masquerading as patriotism; ditto for the Fatherland. The welfare/warfare state is with you; the workers aren’t.

        True conservatism isn’t congruous with big-gummint; and Crony Capitalism that socializes debt – isn’t entrepreneurship.

        Chickenhawks all in a loud, empty suit worn by a furtive, Runyonesque character.

        But of course Neo-Cons, and Neo-Liberals like BHO and the Trailer-trash Twins only suckle for absolute, Communistic power.

        They have a problem. That 800-lb gorilla and elephant in the room isn’t da wife’s “back door man”, that’s the next President.

        A world statesman and America’s only statesman in a century of Progressive wh0res and psychopaths; his positions are simple truth. Only the healthcare tragedy is complicated – I think myriad subsidies should be unified under a single healthcare plan during the 5-yr interim it would take to return to a free market. However this is better than Neo-Cons and Neo-Liberals not understanding their own speechwriters’ talking points plagiarized from Ron. Think “pro-Life” debaucherer, Bush the Younger – with earpiece – aborting fratboy love-child(ren) and blocking 5,6 state, anti-abortion measures : while murdering the sons of the politically non-connected, and followers of the world’s three, great religions (all Semitic in origin) — some for their oil, all for their industry;
        Shrub and Bolton playing musical chairs with National Guards, doctor-son Cheney on 5 yrs bed rest – Sambo deferred for “close and personal” punjis and point.

        Obviously they only give lip-service to Statesman Paul’s traditional Republican and true Conservative agenda of liberty and prosperity through Free-Market Capitalism [NOT imperial protectionism and isolationism]; because they’ll never be more than Communist demagogues.

      4. OurElectionHasAlreadyBeenDecided says:

        Think Mitt is going to pick Sarah Palin after the truth leaked out? I highly doubt it. The state run media cannot keep a lid on it forever. It appears there’s a reason why she acts the way she does, it’s all part of an act.

        Search Palins Dirty Little Secret and learn what the media cannot report, the truth.

      5. Tina says:

        Why?? So we can lose again? Condi Rice, yes!!

      6. dakotahgeo says:

        Even I, as a Democrat, would approve of Ms. Rice, she has graciously turned them down…flat! Wise gal!

    2. Will says:

      He would love to have Mitt pick Sarah. That way he could say somebody was even dumber than he, and deflect the questions that will haunt him forever.

      1. steamboatwz says:

        Aren’t you late for potty training ?

      2. Dogbyte says:

        My name is Will. I love to READ PROPAGANDA and believe it is true! I think Sarah is dumb because all of my liberal buddies told me so. She is so dumb she became a Governor of Alaska and helped reign in Crony Capitalism and served her people of the state well.

        My name is Will and I highly recommend you watch Undefeated. The true story of Sarah Palin not the lies found in Game Change.

      3. dakotahgeo says:

        I don´t know what steamboatwz´s problem is above, but he´s a couple bricks short of a load! Ignore him at ALL costs! He sounds like a Democrat wannabe.

      4. Sean says:

        You are right on bro. Didn’t Sarah a quitter any ways? Served people of Alaska well by resigning so she can focus on …?

      5. evildoc says:

        Oblamer resigned from office too, at not too different a time from Palin. Just sayin’

      6. Independent says:

        Dumber? The man has Law and Business degrees from Harvard. We should all be so dumb.

      7. barry says:

        yes dumb you twit. He thinks the supreme court doesnt have teh authority to over rule him. He also can’t realize when anything is constitutional. Its comical. I’d laugh it werent fro the fact that he is somehow running (running used loosly in this case. more apt word is crashing) our country.

      8. Airman says:

        So Mitt can look as inept as McCain?

      9. Airman says:

        Hey Independent: George W. Bush got his MBA from Harvard. I suspect that you apply a double standard with him and Barry though.

      10. dakotahgeo says:

        Please understand that George W Bunnypants attained NOTHING in life on his own! Gw Sr. bought his son´s way through everything GWHaasenhosen ever accomplished! Both of GWBunny´s terms were fixed, bought and paid for by high end members of the Repugnican Party!

    3. Benny says:

      Dear Mr McCain. Please take a seat and shut up. You have made your stain on the race for president and everyone seems to realize that except you.

    4. kev says:

      C’mon guys,he is simply trying to be gracious to Palin and he knows Romney is not taking him serious….its a political game thang.

      1. Veritas says:

        This is 100% serious. He wants Mitt to take Palin, because that will ensure Obama’s reelection and the bringing about of the progressive “utopia” McCain has dreamed of. Not that Romney wouldn’t do that, but he’s not a sure to do so as Obama.

      2. Veritas says:

        I should emphasis that it would give Obama the election by revving up the “useful idiot” base, not depressing the GOP. She would obviously be a boost to a ticket featuring a man whose ideology is left of JFK.

      3. barry1817 says:

        trying to be gracious or not, McCain seems to attack conservatives more and defend liberals more, than almost anyone else that I know,.

        If he were the other way around, he might have become president, might be liked more and might have earned a place in history that he thought he deserved for his service and imprisonment during the viet nam war.

        And I do salute his service, but that mean that he gets a pass or should get a pass to go to another position that he has shown himself to be unqualified, or if not unqualified, at least not honest about who he is and his positions

    5. Time for Rick to drop out before Mitt beats him in Pennsylvania.

      1. Michael Walker says:

        I concur.

    6. EggbertSouzay says:

      McCain is demonstrating that he has a great sense of humor.

    7. equinoxranch says:


      No to Palin. Never ever to lying, scheming liberal megalomaniac hustler West.

      Both Palin and West are simply beyond despicable.

      1. TrishaL says:

        I love West and Palin. So, you’re an Obama supporter I see.

      2. america says:

        keep smoking crack man

      3. Gunny G says:

        You’re dumber than a bag of dirt. Keep drinking that Obummer kool-aid.

    8. Johnst22 says:

      Has anyone explained to Sarah yet what a VP does all day? Or is she still going around and incorrectly explaining the job?

    9. Jeff Burgdorf says:

      McCain knows who he really wants …

      1. Georgette says:


      2. Dave says:

        What a piece. Why don’t you shut your face already mcshame!

      3. Dave says:

        Actually, I don’t know why Romney would be on the same stage with this loser. It could be the fix is in already.

    10. Sammie Jo says:

      He’s gone senile, someone take him to the nursing home. He must really want obama to win.
      Palin is too polarizing, and while I like her attitude, if I had to listen to that voice for 4 years,, I would go off the deep end.
      Romney should, IMO, pick Alan West, if for no other reason, that it will eliminate the dems using the race card…………………maybe.

    11. ed says:

      Why Condolizza Rice hasn’t been asked is a mystery.

    12. peggy says:

      What does McCain want Barry back in the W. H. If Santorum is the second runner I would pick him I think he would be better off

    13. Jana says:

      That’s for Sure!

  2. The Morrigan's Pet says:

    On his way to losing the election, McCain did the one thing that had a possibility of turning the tide in his favor: he chose Sarah. Makes sense to me, too.

    1. Jenny says:

      That’s your opinion. My opinion is that he had the last election, and LOST it when he took Palin, (her preggers teenage daughter and her baby daddy), on board.

      1. juandos says:

        Coming from yet another supporter of the witless commie parasite from Chicago…

      2. umustbkidding says:

        Palin put life into his candidacy. But I’m real sure he didn’t understand who Palin was. She out shines him by a million to one.

      3. Sarah Palin Isn't Who You Think says:

        Jenny, Sarah Palin was added to the McCain ticket with no intention of winning. The truth is so dark and sinister the media is censored from reporting on it. Don’t expect Mitt to pick her not since the truth leaked out. Search Palins Dirty Little Secret to learn what the government doesn’t want you to know, at least not yet.

      4. Will says:

        You betcha, Jenny! And she couldn’t find the country of Africa – even after reading ALL them newspapers. But she could see Russia from her porch. Read “Game Change” – great book – forget the movie.

      5. GozieBoy says:

        Jenny, like most loony libs you have a poor (or deliberate) misunderstanding of history. McCain was already severely burn toast at the time he selected Palin as his VP choice. He had to do something different and innovated to have ANY chance to win. And you know what? She raised his boat overnight. Of course, this was not enought because after all it WAS McCain at the head of the ticket, so a miracle was perhaps a bit much to expect of the VP candidate!

      6. spock says:

        interesting since Palin briought more people out then even Obama. Thats why the press hated her.

        funny thing everyone says bad things about her but dont know why

      7. TrishaL says:

        Wow, the libs are really scared of Sarah.

      8. zelsdorf2 says:

        I guess you missed the receptions she received when she spoke. Palin is a bigger draw than your Kenyan buddy. McCain’s mistake is he did not turn her loose on Obama. She could have and would tear him a new one. From my understanding of his visits to the Chigcago bath houses, he probably needs a new one.

      9. Dave says:

        McCain lost that election. Plain would’ve done better on her own, without that traitorous old fart

    2. Clare says:

      No, she is old news and did not improve herself one bit since the election. He would be better off with Ryan at least then he would a brain helping him instead of a celebrity.

  3. IndependentVoter says:

    Pick Ron Paul! Then he might have a shot at getting elected!

    1. Jenny says:

      That would be awesome!

    2. GozieBoy says:

      Drug induced hallucinations. Paul has won exactly ZERO primaries and lags FAR FAR behind Romney. So just how is it that you are even wasting a second of your life talking about this gadfly?

  4. Eric says:

    Maybe McCain is just saying Palin in order to try and make everything in Game Change seem like a fabrication.

    Personally I hope she doesn’t get the nomination. Her services as a talking head on Fox News is far too valuable.

  5. Jim says:

    Frankly Condoleezza Rice would really shake things up!!! And she would do an excellent job.

    1. Todd_i says:

      Fantastic choice.

    2. Clare says:

      She almost destroyed the Bush administration, a weak sister

    3. Dave says:

      I used to have a lot of respect for Rice, and the ex- chairman of the joint chiefs, what’s-his-name. Things they’ve both said though in support of obummer got me wondering.

      1. Jim says:

        Rice’s comments about Obama were clearly supportive of the idea of a black person as president. And frankly, even though I didn’t vote for him, think his policies have been awful, and am scared about what will happen if he is re-elected, I AM PROUD that Americans (as a whole) didn’t view race as a negative and elected him president.

        Politically Rice has been pretty quiet and doing well at Stanford. I’d love to see her on the national stage again.

  6. James Woods says:

    If he picks Palin i’ll vote for obama 20 times.

    1. Jenny says:

      I’m with you. Perhaps McCain really wants Romney to lose. Adding Palin would ensure that. Too much drama, not enough intelligence.

      1. Marc says:

        I can understand the drama statement but please elaborate on the “intelligence” comment.

        Most people who say this usually respond by stuttering.. “umm.. ahh.. well.. just listen to her”..

        When pressed about examples they usually get angry and say I don’t want to talk about this.

      2. Kenny says:

        @James Woods & Jenny… Sounds like you two work for Acorn and would vote for Obama 20 times if you could.

      3. GozieBoy says:

        Kenny, that is “will” not “would”.

    2. DaddyB says:

      Well, I’m not in favor of Palin on the ticket, but she does have company in the lunatic fringe crowd. I will say that Ron Paul is at least a full-wit, but still a member of the lunatic fringe crowd. IMHO!

    3. Marc says:

      And you would be a moron.

      Actually what it means is you are already going to vote for Obama…

    4. batjac says:

      Isn’t that what democrats already do?

    5. TrishaL says:

      I’m sure the election will be rigged so that you will be able to do that. That’s the plan.

  7. jasonn13 says:

    How about John Kyle?

  8. Chris says:

    McCain is out of touch with reality. If anyone needs to gracefully exit, its him. No one cares what you have to say, John. You blew it in 2008.

  9. Edward Boothe says:

    We now have a dictator in this country who thinks that if the Supreme Court disagrees with anything he says that they are guilty of “Judicial Activism”.

    In his State of the Union speech in 2010, as Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito frowned and shook his head, he condemned the “Citizens United vs Federal Election Commission” ruling of the court, in the presence of all of the Congress, and 48 million citizens watching on TV. The Justices should have gotten up and walked out.
    Now he has WARNED the Justices that they would be overstepping their roles by questioning his unconstitutional Obamacare power grab, that allows the Government to tell its subject that they must buy a product, whether they want it or not. He said that they were unelected and had not authority to overturn a bill that was passed by the Congress.
    The Supreme court has overturned bills that have been approved by Congress 156 times, and a Federal Judge with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has directed Obama to respond to him with a three page, single spaced explanation, by noon Thursday, why he attacked the Supreme Court Justices the way he did. Thank God for Judge Jerry Smith putting a wannabe dictator in his place.
    A crack dealer would have more sense than to pull a trick like this, and they say he is a Constitutional Lawyer.
    He has bypassed Congress in the past 3 ½ years at every opportunity, and told the Russians that he would have more flexibility in his second term to make concessions to them. If he had any more flexibility, he would be a total Communist Dictator. His first act would probably be to abolish the first and second amendments. Think about it, is that what you want?

    If you want to remain free from having a dictatorship, please email this to everyone you know and hope it goes viral.

    1. Jim Palmer says:

      “Viral” is a good description for your thinking process. You’ve been infected with Foxnewsitus.

  10. Jenny says:

    Why does McCain want Romney to lose? Putting Palin on the ballot will lose all the Independent voters. Romney already has the far right voters, he now needs to woo the Independents, and having Palin and her dysfunctional daughter and her baby daddy and his drama on board is a sure way to lose. McCain needs to fade into the background.

    1. ginger says:

      Why would anyone listen to someone who LOST an election four years ago, or consider putting the running mate of a LOSING ticket on the one chance the GOP has? John McCain is the reason we are in the mess we are in to begin with.

      1. Dave says:

        Well, McCain, and bush. I think the whole system’s rigged.

    2. GozieBoy says:

      Why do loony libs like Jenny continually say that families and especially children are off limits in politics (when it pertains to Obama), but always jump at the chance to raise this subject themselves, no matter how off target or disgusting their comment are?

      1. Voice Of Reason says:

        Because it’s the conservatives that constantly put a narrow view of family and morals front and center in the public arena making them look like hypocrites when they fail to live up to their own rhetoric.

        Liberals don’t make a big thing out of these issues that conservatives say are absolute core values. So it’s only really conservatives that can be held to account for failing to live up to the morals that they constantly espouse. You can’t say a liberal is a hypocrite for not living with a conservative moral code, but you can say a conservative is if they do not.

  11. Sparky2 says:

    Sarah Palin would be an electrifying powerhouse to a Romney ticket and help confirm that Romney would be a supporter of the true conservative movement in America. The McCain/Palin ticket lost in 2008 not because of Sarah (who had ignited his lazy campagn) but because of McCain himself who was too moderate to excite the base enough to come out in huge numbers. Sarah would be a great addition and while Romney appears more moderate, this time even with that hinderance, the voters are fed up with Obama and the damage he has done to our economy and country that they will be motivated to vote for Romney on that alone.

    1. Considering Palin is still not behind Romney i dont think she is an option here. She clearly prefers Santorum or Gingrich ahead of Romney. I would argue that a Chris Christie would be a strong VP and just as electrifying. Plus I think he appeals to the Independent vote. What do you think?

    2. Robert says:

      “An electrifying powerhouse?” Good lord, why can’t people like you see that she isn’t the smartest tool in the tool shed (to put it lightly)?

      I want Romney to win but if she is on the ticket, he’s toast.

      1. Fritzthecat says:

        Yes, she’s so dumb she’s written best selling books, draws huge ratings whenever and wherever she appears on tv, attracts large crowds wherever she appears, has earned tons of money, cleaned up Alaska’s cesspool of state goverment, and on and on. Wish I were that dumb!

      2. HFC says:

        @fritzthecat (below) So has Snooki. Your point is?

  12. Momofthree says:

    Romney will be a hold your nose vote for me. If he wants to win, he should pick Paul Ryan. Rubio is a NO NO since he is NOT natural born ( his parents were NOT US citizens when he was born). Paul Ryan knows his cr*p when it comes to budgets and helping our economy.

    1. Momofthree says:

      Plus, I am NOT happy with Rubio and his new version of the “Dream Act”

      1. Momofthree says:

        He is reminding me of a Mel Martinez

      2. GozieBoy says:

        Momoftthree: Talk to yourself often do you?

    2. Jim says:

      Rubio was born IN MIAMI to Cuban immigrants.

      All the birthers and democrats defenses of Obama have people confused about what it means to be natural born. Natural born means born in the US, with some exceptions for children of US citizen diplomats and members of the armed forces.

      1. JustLurkin says:

        No it doesn’t. Natural born is being born on US soil OF PARENTS WHO ARE BOTH US CITIZENS. This means no Rubio, and he’s down with that. That’s why he’s sayin’ “no”.

      2. Jim says:

        Please site any kind of evidence that is the definition of natural born –

        Lynch v. Clarke (1844) born in NY to British parents – moved out of US – still a US born citizen
        In re Look Tin Sing – Born in US to Chinese parents = Citizen (that is from 1884 BTW)

        BUT MORE importantly Perkins v. Elg – Perkins (born in NY) The supreme court held she was a “natural born citizen” despite having a father that renounced US citizenship and had lived in Sweden until she was 21 (307 U.S. 325)

        Which by the way in dictum said that the person born in America and raised in another country could yet “become President of the United States”.

        Furthermore it is black letter law that a “naturalized” Citizen is not a “natural born citizen”; and the converse has never been challenged (that a US Citizen by right is a natural born citizen”

  13. muddruthers says:

    McCain needs to STFU

    1. ginger says:

      he and Sarah Palin both.

  14. Jay says:

    I hope anyone who voted for obobo because they objected to Palin realizes what a terrible thing they inflicted on this country with this stalin wannabe.

    I detest Romney, but I’m gonna vote for him anyway. He at least isn’t obobo. And if he picks someone as good as Palin, I’ll vote with enthusiasm. She’s the only good decision McCain ever made.

  15. Duude says:

    Palin won’t be on any list for potential VPs. McCain, doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Marco Rubio would be a good choice but I doubt he’s interested. Allen West would be another great choice.

  16. Karl says:

    Neither Rubio or Jindal can be VP. They are not Natural Born Citizens, i.e. Their parents were not U.S. Citizens at the time Rubio or Jindal were born. Thankfully Rubio knows the Constitution and honors it and would not accept the VP position.

    1. Mike Field says:

      This is a position that is not going to prevail. Rubio and Jindal are birthright citizens born on U.S. soil. We already have a sitting president who had a non-citizen parent. Just win, baby. Victory is a great solvent.

  17. jocko says:

    Poor John. The list of folks who have passed their time in the limelight can add one more. Now all he does is make a fool of himself. So sad such a man has come to this. Those who love him should let him know it is time to fade away.

  18. McLamewrongagain says:

    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
    Albert Einstein

    Thank you McCain, you have proved Einstein is correct again.

  19. matken says:

    Sarah Palin as V.P.?

    I would say it’s a toss-up between Palin and Kim Kardasian. They’re equally qualified but Kim is smarter and has been known to read newspapers.

    1. Robert says:

      Love your comment. Why can’t some people see that Palin is dumb. Why?

      1. Fritzthecat says:

        Yes, she’s so dumb she’s written best selling books, draws huge ratings whenever and wherever she appears on tv, attracts large crowds wherever she goes, has earned tons of money, cleaned up Alaska’s cesspool of state goverment, enriched the Alaskan citizens by working out a wonderful deal with the oil companies, and on and on. Wish I were that dumb!

  20. Dave K says:

    NOTHING would get me to vote for Obama, however I’m sure he’d win if Romney was to pick Palin. Her inability to put two words together with out sounding like Yoda makes me cringe every time she speaks.

  21. Zoidberg says:

    Why not Zoidberg?

  22. bobm001 says:

    Someone should give “Johnny Boy” a cookie and set him down in a corner somewhere.

  23. cleareyed says:

    It warms my heart to know how frightened some of you liberals are of Sarah Palin!!

    1. ginger says:

      I’m a conservative and I wish she’d go away.

    2. Sketch says:

      It saddens my soul to know how clueless you are.

      1. dakotahgeo says:

        By all means!!! Run Palin with Romney… as if the Republicans/TPods aren´t the laughingstock of the political world already! That ought to cement their place in history for good!

  24. Sue0319 says:

    McCain saying “pick Palin” was a JOKE!!

    If you saw/heard the entire interview, you would realize it.

    Palin was not a good pick for VP, and that is why McCain lost.

    Due to McCain’s age, there was a very realistic chance that he could die while in office. The Independents were NO WAY going to vote for Palin as VP, and have her take over the office at that time.

    As someone stated on other posts……..If the Republicans would ever seriously bring up Palin as a candidate again—–this proves that they are all on crack.

    The majority with an IQ over 80, will NEVER support/vote for Palin!!

  25. Sue0319 says:


    Go and listen/watch the entire interview!!

  26. truecolours says:

    Mittens should bring Ron Paul in as VP. Paul would balance people’s suspicions that Romney is a RHINO or worse. Secondly, much of what needs to happen legislatively to restore our Republic; Paul has a good knowledge of the legal mechanics to get that done.

  27. Earl says:

    It appears that RINO John does not care for RINO Rick, hmmmmm. But to push Palin on Mitt, must want to hurt Mitt really badly. What did Mitt ever do to McCain? But the Republicans will have to look far and wide to find someone to match Biden in oral/mental mis-steps. Heck Uncle Joe has even made W look like a wordsmith.

  28. POLLUXAKS4 says:

    As a follow-up to my previous post: I don’t want Palin as vp, I want her assigned to EPA where she can begin stripping away all the trumped up regulations that are preventing oil production and drowning businesses in over-regulation. We need oil production on fast track, windmills dismantled, and employment for millions of Americans not unemployment further enhanced by collapse of “green energy” companies who have been financed by Obama with our tax money, including special deals that assure investors of such alternative energy companies repayment of their money during bankruptcy of these farce companies while assuring the tax-payers will not be repaid.

  29. Karl Magnus says:

    As John McLame discovered, Sarah Palin adds little to a losing ticket.
    To be sure, Mrs. Palin is a good and decent woman, wife, mother, etc., but really … Vice Presidential material? Not in MY world.
    Sorry, she’s STILL not ready for the Big Leagues. She has had 3+ years to educate herself, do some world travel, etc., yet is more consumed with the almighty dollar. Again, to be sure, there’s not a thing wrong with that (I truly do wish her all the best), and ANYONE would be better than drunken Joe ‘The Village Idiot’ Biden, but why would she take the pay cut? She’ll NEVER be POTUS. Sorry, Palinistas.

      and how bidens the drunk doing

  30. DBC says:

    I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR A MORMON. Everyone please read and learn about what this church is REALLY about. Mitt Romney is NOT a christian and the LDS Church is NOT a christian denomination. They are a blasphemous perversion. Read The God Makers by Ed Decker and Dave Hunt and then decide if you REALLY want someone who was a PASTOR in this church to lead our nation. As for me, I’m staying home on election day. God help us all!

    1. GozieBoy says:

      What has Romney said vis-a-vis Mormanism that gives you pause? On the other hand, are you happy voting for a person whose background is so secretive? And what we do know about Obama’s faith is very troubling: a 20 year follower of the racist and anti-American Rev. Wright and Father Flager, and who also thinks that the most beautiful sound in the world is the islamic call to prayer? Yes, may God help you, as you clearly need it.

  31. Zorch says:

    McCain was obviously joking when he said “pick Palin”.
    He’s not that stupid.

  32. Roy Rogers says:

    I remember the good old days when losers like Mc Cain, Carter et al used to quietly fade away. How I long for a return to those days.

    1. GozieBoy says:

      Make sure you toss Bubba in with that lot, too.

  33. RRR440 says:

    McCain is senile and smoked too much rice while in Viet Nam

  34. potvin99 says:

    I hate to be ageist, but I think senility has set in.

  35. RRR440 says:

    Palin is the one time mayor of the Meth capital of Alaska….what a woman….a real loser.

  36. Alan says:

    Huckabee. He would shore up evangelicals and the South. He’s also pre-vetted (having run before), and was a very competent Governor. He’d be a safe “do-no-harm” pick, but still excite conservatives while not scaring off independents.

    1. GozieBoy says:

      Alan, good one. That gave me my laugh for the day. Huckabee… OMG … stop it!

      1. Jeremiah says:

        It’s actually not a bad idea. The guy was a good governor, and he does well in debates.

      2. GozieBoy says:

        And he pardoned murderers out of prison because he felt such “compassion” for them rather than for their victims — only for them to go on and murder more innocent people. Sorry, can’t have that level of poor judgment anywhere near the WH. One Carter is more than enough.

  37. GLASS says:

    What I wonder is how many of these posters have half as much, hell ,a tenth as much experience in life, business and politics as Sarah Palin. All I see is a bunch of immature comments parroting the |MSM in their slamming of someones success in life, but I guess that’s what uninformed losers do.

  38. Karloff says:

    McCain is out of his head.

  39. Frank says:

    No matter who he chooses, even an inanimate object would beat him. America won’t choose a corporate raider. This is clear.

  40. SkeeboMacBane says:

    LMAO Palin is a tart and a money grubbing opportunist. if Mitt puts her on the ticket I’d voter for the Kenyan for the heck of it. <— not really but come on!!!

  41. cebes says:

    McCain suggests Palin? He must be a Obama supporter.

  42. Aaron says:

    Romney would be crazy to pick Palin. She is the reason i did not vote for Mccain. I’d still vote for Romney but there are FAR better picks for VP than this Palin dingbat.

  43. Yirmin Snipe says:

    If McCain is serious when he says that, then I have to wonder what below the waist services was Sarah doing… and they must have been really good for him to suggest throwing your shot at being President away by picking her.

  44. donz0 says:

    The GOP is such a disorganized embarrassment in some sort of political self-destruct mode. Romney has no chance regardless of who he chooses as his running mate or what he does with his etch-a-sketch.

  45. Francis McFlagger says:

    Some dismal type recently said Obama, because he’s black, one supposes,
    hates this coutry. Absurd of course,

    but MC CAIN must be very angry with the last vote, or truely hate this country
    to suggest Palin. Or he’s asmart alec.

  46. Suzanne says:

    ROMNEY – RYAN, ROMNEY – PAUL, ROMNEY – RUBIO. I’d vote for any of these combinations. ANYTHING but OBAMA!

  47. dml says:

    As much as I may admire Sarah Palin, Huh??? The definition of insanity is repeating the same experiment over and over hoping for a different outcome.

  48. RT says:

    McCain suggesting Palin as a VP candidate? That’s just sooooo mean!

  49. Jack says:

    John McCain: stuck on stupid

  50. america says:

    man you people are the most dumbest people ever no wonder why this country is going down did any of you people ever read a book

    1. B.F. says:

      You’re logged onto the wrong comment section. This is the conservative section. Oh and by the way, this country is going down because the current president has no respect for the United States of America. It shows by his lack of respect for the law and for the United States Constitution.

  51. flynny says:

    I have never seen so much Obama Campaign reverse psychology in one post.

    Palin would be an excellent choice, because the Obamacrats know she would end up as President one day.

    That’s why all the phony downer posts. And you useful idiot Repubs on here that agree with dems because you believe their BS. Your lost souls.

  52. Travis says:

    McCain is a war mongering traitor

    1. Laurie says:

      How many wars do has Bo been involved in? Do the math. Man, fact means nothing to you libs.

  53. rex reddy says:

    Romney / Condi 2012!

  54. PennyBeach says:

    Settle down Grandpa Simpson.

  55. Terry says:

    He sure was a winner with her. LOL

  56. You're Kidding Right? says:

    And the winner of the dumbest white man in politics goes to……..!

  57. rpmcestmoi says:

    This is a great idea, but clearly it came from the DCCC.

  58. Brian says:

    USA would be so much better off today had McCain been elected. n.

    We’d have a President with humility instead of a pompous ass with none.

  59. susan says:

    Sarah learned her lesson. She won’t run with a liberal RINO again, and set herself up for a big fall. Let them chose an ineligible candidate in Rubio, so the RINO establishment can get even with the DEMs for their ineligible candidate Obama. A little tit-for-tac among our corrupt government if you will.

  60. Patriot Forever says:

    Rubio, Jindal and “Obama” aren’t eligible to run:

  61. Jim Palmer says:

    Regardless of whomever Romney picks as his running mate, the basic truth understood by voters is this: ROMNEY = BUSH.

  62. comprof says:

    Palin was my first choice for President and certainly would be for Vice President,

  63. bob heaphy says:

    What a complete idiot.

  64. bob heaphy says:

    Complete idiot.

  65. dnes novini says:

    You know therefore significantly in relation to this topic, produced me in my opinion imagine it from numerous numerous angles. Its like men and women don’t seem to be fascinated until it’s something to do with Girl gaga! Your individual stuffs great. At all times maintain it up!

  66. Gunny G says:

    F U McShame. YOU are the reason we have the Kenyan Arsehole now.

  67. freecheese says:

    McCain, a bigger failure at a run for president — just ahead of Bob Dole, should keep his nose out of this race. He just brings up bad memories of another failed RINO.

  68. mixplix says:

    McCain, you’re an idiot.

  69. skippy777 says:

    about porn pusher pelosi….i have sent this info to AZ sheriff joe apaio…i want to open an investigation into porn pusher nancy pelosi’s stances on pornography and her relationship to the California porn industry.

    pelosi should be jailed for pushing porn on this country…this ungodly b*tch sided with the porn industry to ban condoms from porn videos because the porn industry said they would lose viewers and lose revenue…it was the porn industry actors who asked pelosi to support them.

    In 2000, nine porn actors contracted the HIV virus because the porn industry banned all actors from wearing condoms. However, pelosi – as well as senators Feinstein and Boxer – said no to the actors and supported the porn industry.

    Despite the strong support of mandatory condom usage for all porn actors by the California health department, the California OSHA, and the California AIDS organizations, PELOSI, BOXER, FEINSTEIN sided with the porn industry against the will of the state.

    1. In 2004, pelosi, senators barbara boxer and diane feinstein and all california liberals in the state senate sided with the porn industry that condoms were not necessary despite the fact that many AIDS groups, the CA health dept, and CA/OSHA were strongly in favor of mandatory condoms for porn actors.

    2. only california may legally produce pornographic materials such as pictures and videos…it is the state of california that governs the porn industry – not the federal government.

    3. the porn industry is taxed at less than 1 percent profit…there is porn in 60 countries…no country is taxed at less than 25 percent. ….if NANCY PELOSI IS SO KEEN ON RAISING NEW TAXES, SHE SHOULD START WITH HER STATE’S PORN INDUSTRY

    4. california has passed more than 12,000 laws regarding state businesses in the past ten years. NOT ONE LAW HAS BEEN PASSED REGARDING THE PORN INDUSTRY.

    How nancy pelosi is converting California into CaliPORNia.

    In 2010, the city of san Francisco was awarded thousands of taxpayer dollars as a part of Pres obama’s stimulus package. San Francisco is the district that nancy pelosi represents in the united states congress. How did ms. Pelosi spend the taxpayers’ hard earned dollars? The money was spent on the three projects below.

    ‘Thundercrack’, “the world’s only underground kinky art porno horror film, complete with four men, three women and a gorilla.”

    “Perverts Put Out” at San Francisco’s CounterPULSE, whose “long-running pansexual performance series” invites guests to “join your fellow pervs for some explicit, twisted fun.”

    “The Symmetry Project,” a dance piece by choreographer Jess Curtis.
    The show depicts “the sharing of a central axis, [as] spine, mouth, genitals, face, and anus reveal their interconnectedness and centrality.

  70. mike troup says:

    I thought McCain regretted choosing Palin- isn’t that what the MSM says? I love Sarah, but she is a lightening rod and a distraction, so I don’t see Romney picking her…

  71. Joe says:

    To all the idiots who say Bobby Jindal and Marco Rubio can’t be VP because their not natural born citizens, please do your homework.

    “The Congressional Research Service has stated that natural born, indicates that someone who is entitled under the Constitution or laws of the United States to U.S. citizenship “at birth” or “by birth,” including any child born “in” the United States, even to alien parents (other than to foreign diplomats serving their country), the children of United States citizens born abroad, and those born abroad of one citizen parent has met U.S. residency requirements.”

    Thank You,

  72. Derek says:

    Boy… McCain really doesn’t like Romney does he?

  73. John Beach says:

    That is certainly an interesting choice by one whose defeat was blamed on that very choice. Is he wishing defeat for the republicans or recognizing the need to represent the significant number of fundamental conservatives the big money republicans wish would simply go away? There could be far worse choices, but not if one is a liberal or democrat.

  74. Reality says:

    Tom Coburn from Muskogee Oklahoma USA and conservative Baptist will probably be his running mate.

  75. top seo tools says:
