Jeff Immelt.

Someone like this might work if the economy goes in the toilet between now and the election, but if that happens, a lot of potential GOP VP candidates could be sufficient.

Really??? LINK

Makes you wonder what Obama saw in him. 

But if the economy goes drastically south, the independents could be more easily swayed by any alternative to President Obama.  And the fabulously wealthy have just the “free speech $$$” to make that kind of swaying happen.

Yep, that’s the biggest complaint I have about Obama - keeping the people who made the mess.

If Romney passes over Haley and other right wingers, is there a chance that the Teabaggers get frustrated and try to run a candidate as a third party option? That would be awesome.

Cool, perhaps Santorum.

I would vote for him in a heartbeat. Or Colbert (the real Colbert, not the caricature he plays—although that would be interesting too!)

I don’t think so.  I think they are too inculcated with their mindless hatred of Obama, and that will overcome any sense of integrity to remain loyal to their extreme ideologies.  Their forming a third party would absolutely insure another term for President Obama, and that is much worse, I would think, to a Tea Party member than a Romney ticket with even a progressive left leaning Repub VP candidate.

But I don’t think Romney can choose a progressive left leaning Repub as a VP Candidate (if he could even find one), because some of the base might become apathetic despite their hatred of Obama.  The election will likely be too close for either side to risk having an alienated or apathetic base.

If we are suggesting our fantasy Presidential candidate, I would pick Bill Maher. 

But in reality, I think Bill Maher or John Stewart either one, would be the first to make fun of us for even suggesting such things.

Yep, in fact Jon Stewart has come right out and said that. Still, he’d be better than Santorum, Romney, Gingrich…

OK, if we’re doing fantasies, how about Romney choosing as his VP running mate either Limbaugh or Hannity?  LOL
