Romney-Cain in 2012!

Loading

Over at The Washington PostEd Rogers (a former Haley Barbour business partner) proposes an interesting idea: “Huntsman and Bachmann should have a meeting of the minds and offer themselves as a Huntsman-led ticket before the Iowa caucuses next year.”

This would be creative. I like the way he’s thinking.

And it got me thinking about possible pairings between establishment favorites and Tea Party conservatives. The beauty of selecting a running mate is the opportunity to build bridges and heal old wounds. Sometimes this is about geographical balance — but more and more, it’s about message.

One possible match that is beginning to grow on me is the notion of a Romney-Cain ticket. (Stick with me here). Both are successful businessmen, so, in a way, this would be sort of like what Clinton-Gore did in 1992 when — instead of seeking to “balance” the ticket with an older Democrat from the North — Democrats doubled-down on the young, Southern thing. Cain would balance the ticket geographically and philosophically. But the primary message would be obvious: Romney-Cain are proven business leaders who can fix the economy. Period.

Why would Cain want to saddle himself with the liberal Republican Romney?

Romney is a RINO, Cain is not.

‘Nuff said…

I would vote for cain in a heartbeat, but paired up with romney no way…

Curt Cain doesn’t help Romney in the general election Electoral College chase. Sen. Rubio brings Fla.(huge), toss up states with large Latin populace like New Mexico,Nevada and Colorado. Southern roots help in toss up states Virginia and North Carolina.This is the strongest Repub. ticket.

Anticsrocks I believe a Conservative LED ticket will lose to BHO.

Thoughts on Giuliani being the new front runner?

The U.S. economy and world affairs will be in the out house hole by September 2012. Gas and diesel fuel will be $6-8.00 a gallon by then and there will be several civil wars and attacks on Israel by then due to the power vacuum left there by our current CIC. No matter how much independent voters say they do not like Sarah Palin and that she is Unqualified and unelectable,she will be the next President of the United States of America! Romney/Cain is a winning team in November I believe, but can Mitt Romney win the nomination without totally alienating Sarah Palins Tea Party followers. (This btw, may lead to a third party candidate from the right which would reelect POTUS Obama.) So, In conclusion IMHO Sarah Palin will be the nominee and if this becomes reality, we all have to give her team unqualified support when the “Mother of all epic political battles” Is fought. BTW, I am watching a great parade right now!

Blogforce Don’t think Romney Cain strong enough to beat BHO. A Palin Romney fight for nom. would be epoch..Obviously a 3rd party run by Conservs against Romney would bring a BHO win.

CAIN PALIN WILL BE THE ONE ON THE LAST FIGHT, HAVING ELIMINATE THE OTHER,
THIS WILL BE EXTRAORDINARY, TO SEE EITHER ONE WIN
BECAUSE THEY WILL WORK AS A TEAM AFTER

I cannot see Cain ever being Veep to Romney, ever.

Flip that one. Cain/Romey. I don’t like Romey, but your right he is a success at business. Cains got chrisma which Romey is lacking, plus he is successful as well, and direct to.

Cain made some big news today……

When I was asked, ‘Would you be comfortable with a Muslim in your cabinet?’ and I said no,” Cain said. “I would not be comfortable.
I didn’t say I wouldn’t appoint one because if they can prove to me they are putting the Constitution of the United States first, they would be a candidate just like everybody else.
My entire career I hired good people, great people, regardless of their religious orientation.”
